I love black Southern cooking and making it. So tonights menu is:

Extra crunchy fried buttermilk chicken

crayfish sauté in garlic butter

3 cheese mac and cheese

red beans and rice in spicy gravy

'stewed mixed greens with smoked ham cocks and fresno peppers

candied orange yams

moist cornbread muffins

homemade black molasses pecan pie

This is a meal fit for a king!

Freudian slip Capree.

I'm sure you meant "Hocks" not "Cocks".

I see topix doesn't have enough money to invest in an edit button but they can up grade this site?

Obviously you don't understand what moderation is. You don't eat such a meal everyday, week or even month. We only consume such a rich meal 2 to 3 times a year, usually when we have people for dinner than return normal routine of eating 4 to 6 small meals a day and exercising. If I can't get to my gym, I make sure I go for a long walk or do several things around the house. I know how to keep in shape.

Hi Lisa and thank you, I use to make a cheese sauce but I find this method some much easier and flavorful. You will have adjust ingredients to what ever proportion you need so I will just give you the ingredients and method.

Boiled and drained macaroni

3 different shredded cheeses-1/2part cheddar, 1/4part swiss and 1/4part blue cheese (or your own 3 choices of tangy cheeses)

milk

butter

flour(make sure to sprinkle in so no lumps)

salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients in large bowl then spoon into each little ramekin for individual servings then sprinkle with more cheddar cracker crumbs or bacon crumbs and bake ramekins on cookie sheet at 350 for 30 minutes.
