Hominy Casserole – Reprise

[stextbox id=”grey”]I posted this recipe November 24, 2009, and it remains my favorite casserole.  Recently, the search word “hominy” has been trending high for this blog; so here’s the world’s greatest casserole just in time for the 2010 holiday season. Hat tip to my lovely wife Katy for coming up with it.[/stextbox]

Thanksgiving week always begs the question:  Turkey or Sides?  I am a sides man.  You can get about a million casserole variations at this time of the year: green bean, broccoli, squash, sweet potato, etc., etc., but a few weeks ago Katy made a Hominy Casserole that, I guarantee, will be the most popular side at your holiday feast.  Some of you non-southerners may not know what hominy is.  Suffice to say it is a corn product, with a long heritage.  It’s where grits comes from.  Try this, and you won’t be able to go back to the standard casserole fare.

Peabody Hotel Lobby – Holiday Season

Always nice to make a trip to the world famous Peabody Hotel Lobby in downtown Memphis, during the Holiday season.  Literature tells us the Delta starts here.
Look closely and you will see the ducks are sleeping.
