    Coconut cake, the kind that sits in the refrigerator for a couple of days before it is served.

    A great big yes to everything except the coconut cake...I think coconut is an acquired taste I never acquired. The pimento cheese spread is impossible to find in NorCal, so had to learn to make it myself, and love it on nearly everything, especially hamburgers. Beans without cornbread is like cherry pie without a glass of milk. I remember the sort of green beans you mention, but never yet found a recipe that replicates what I remember.

    In Texas smoked brisket is probably #1 on our plates but all the goodies listed here go with it. A big chicken fried steak smothered is white gravy is not hard to find here either.

    Me too fmdog. I started as a young boy with just a drop or two in homemade soup. Now I grow the peppers and make my own sauce. Being on a low salt diet I omit the salt in mine. Just peppers and vinegar.

    [QUOTE=Aunt Bea; Pimento cheese sandwiches !

    My mom used to make pimento cheese from scratch and it was really good......in the stores locally is Mrs. Weaver's and it's pretty darn good for store bought.

    Please don't remind me, LOL. I look horrible when turned green with envy! We love chicken-fried steak and it's almost impossible to find a decent version out here. I can make it very well at home,but then we eat double portions because...well, I hardly ever make it so we 'pig out'!

    However, there's been an increase in soul food restaurants in our area, so dishes like gumbo, shrimp and grits, and chicken 'n' waffles (the latter being one that may or may not be Southern, or Pennsylvanian, or ?? (Wiki gives a good rundown of its many appearances: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_and_waffles), have been easy to find in the last couple of years.

    I used to live in the french quarter of new orleans and i learned to love red beans and rice with smoked suasage and, of course a good chewy french bread. Nearly every restuarant in the city serves it on mondays.

    Interesting history of this dish. In the old days woman always washed clothes on mondays, a rough chore when done by hand. The ladies, however, still had to feed the kids and the hubby when he came home from work. So, she had no time to cook. The answer was to soak the beans overnite, and in the morning drain the beans, add fresh water, smoked ham hocks, some spices, chopped: Onions, celery, and green peppers (called the holy trinity in new orleans) cover and simmer all day on the back of the stove. An hour before her family came home ,she would add the smoked sausage. Then at the last minute all she had to do was start the rice.
    A simple dish but just fabulous.

    Homemade Pimento cheese swirled with smoked chipotle sauce, usually with Wheat Crackers. Very good and depending on how heavy-handed you get with the Chipotle Sauce, it will lite you up. I make my own.
