I recently heard this on KLOVE radio. For listeners to call in about.
“You ain’t from my town if you haven’t ate this.”
I’m not so sure about the grammar, but I am sure that we all have our local favorites.
In Tulsa, it’s hands down, Coney I-Lander.
How about you? What food is your hometown known for?
Speaking of food, I think I consumed more calories yesterday than I normally do in an entire month! I was more stuffed than the turkey! There were deviled eggs, mashed potatoes and gravy, mac and cheese, three kinds of dressing: traditional with Italian sausage, jalepeno pecan, and cornbread, turkey, corn souffle, sweet potatoes, green beans, cheese puffs, cranberry sauce, and rolls. And then there was pie. Pumpkin, pecan, key lime, cheesecake, and cookies.
I have to say, after yesterday, a coney is sounding pretty good to me today.
What is it about eating an extremely large meal, a week of vacation or cruise food, and you come home and want local comfort food?
Do you know what else provides us comfort? Jesus.
After all, it is black Friday. Why not turn to him today? For comfort. He’s the originator of black Friday. I’m not talking about shopping deals here. I’m talking about the day the world went black when he took his last breath.
Let’s all relax today. Eat our leftovers or our comfort food. Shop ’til we drop. But when it’s all said and done, let’s seek Jesus for our true source of comfort.
Comfort, yes, comfort my people! says your God. Isaiah 40:1
Love and laughter,
