One difference is that the average Jamaican meal tends to be much more healthy and includes many more fresh fruits and veggies.
I dunno -my average southern meal includes fresh squash, vine ripened tomatoes, collard greens and black eyed peas...or okra, potatoes, cabbage, sweet corn, turnips and turnip greens, etc etc. Growing up in the south, we always had plenty of fresh veggies. Oh and I nearly forgot - peaches, blackberries, watermelons, cantalopes, muscadines, plums, pears, strawberries, pomegranates, persimmons, etc. Oh, and sassafrass tea.

The point is that Southern Fried Chicken is the best and most prominent example of that food for a reason.
I don't know and I never will. She was born in the 1800s and died in the 1960s. She did raise chickens in the 1930s and '40s when there were food shortages. I assume that's when she learned how to fry chicken.

I guess there were some people who moved to my home town during the Great Migration, but I never met them. We were: Irish, Welsh, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Lithuanian...

You either know how to cook, or you don't.

Nope. That looks like Jamaican food.

THIS is a down-home meal:

A great man who blessed others with his business savvy (best tastin' chicken sandwich on God's green earth!) and never undermined his love for Christ or his values. That's hard to do these days.

A great one for sure. I'll have to raise a glass and tip the hat to ol' Truett.

Is that rutabaga on the plate in the first picture? Chain restaurants need to serve more rutabaga. Hey, I had to eat it. It wasn't bad with gravy.

Probably in 2-3 years. Seriously.

Amazon is sick of playing by the rules of carriers. People want their stuff delivered when they want it delivered and considering Amazon Fresh will go nationwide soon enough, the security of timely delivery is evermore important. Get ready.
