Southern Living

Something New

Growing up, I have always considered myself from the South. But the funny thing about that is, I move to northern Florida, and they all call me a 'south Florida Yankee'. Being here for over a year, I have for the most part redeemed myself. Yet there are still new things that make them rag on me all over again. For instance, I went on my first dove hunt recently. They found it crazy I had never done that before. They also took one look at my hunting stands throughout the woods and found their locations amusing. Slowly but surly I am learning the ways, and picking up some delicious recipes along the way. The smoker my dad welded for me has sure met its quota of ribs.
