Don't forget the onions, cucumbers and peppers.

It is now safe to plant tomatoes.

Slightly off topic -- I have a question about a Southern staple, sweet tea. I found a recipe online for Southern sweet tea, that called for a pinch of baking soda in the pitcher before making the tea -- can anyone tell me the purpose of this? I assume it's just a pinch thrown in the bottom of the pitcher?

Baking soda, being a base, helps to soften the tea and remove any acidity or bitterness

Thanks -- obviously I haven't been paying proper attention to Alton Brown.

Default Speeding in a school zone?

If you are giving speeding ticket for a school zone, when it was not in school time, is it still an extra penalty? I was given a ticket during non-school hours on a non-school day. Is this correct? I always thought it was limited to certain times of the day? Any info on this would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, you're welcome. But that's not Alton Brown. That's hangin' around my grandmother in Alabama when I's a kid.

When I think of Southern food, I think of greasy chicken and fries served with vegetables that have copious amounts of bacon.

There is also a restaurant by the name of "Big Daddy's" . It's located on Riverdale Rd. south of the airport in Riverdale. The best oxtails, fried fish, greens, fried chicken, short ribs, deserts, cobblers....... on and on. Sooooooooo good.

Also, check out Gladys Knight's Chicken n Waffles in Lithonia (Stonecrest Mall) and doentown ATL on Peachtree St. Another great place to eat.

It all works out the same -- 'cause I think he got his know-how from hanging around his grandmother in Georgia. And it's all good, and I thank you and your grandmother for the help. :-)

Anyway, I just meant, that's exactly the kind of stuff you learn from watching Good Eats.
