Friday Five: Your Five Favorite Soul Food dishes

Nothing is more a part of our history than our meals.  Soul Food helped us to survive on scraps, feed us at churches before we marched for civil rights, and helped us build businesses.  I has also taken some lives…gotta watch your health, Negroes.  :)

We are talking main dishes, side dishes, sauces, gravy, dessert, etc.  He’s my list…even though I’m converting to Veganism.  *sigh and a collective “Negro, Please” ring throughout the readers*  LOL

1. Fried Chicken

2. Collard Greens

3. Pound Cake

4. Mac and Cheese

5. Gibblet Gravy

How about you?
