Meat 'n' Three

Last night at People, the copy chief asked me what a meat 'n' three was. I went into a really long explanation, and then I asked him where he heard it. He said, "Southern Living." Well, duh. But all that talking about it made me hungry for fried green tomatoes, fried okra, and chicken fried chicken. Which is just like chicken fried steak, except with chicken. I will never get tired of saying that.

I apologize for any spelling/grammar errors. The fonts on the computer that I'm sitting at this week are all wonky.

INEXCUSABLE!

Just kidding. You're still my favorite copy editor.

Lemme give you the Wisconsin 'meat and three':

A Brat, a block of cheese, a Miller Highlife and another block of cheese.

I miss my Southern food. Even if all the examples you gave were fried.

Cheese is YUM-O!

John said...

Not. Funny.

Hee hee! That'll stop being funny when Donettes stop being delicious.

I had to look up what Donettes were. I've never heard of those. Because I don't eat doughnuts for lunch like some people.

The doughnuts don't bother me. It's the colorful snowballs that disgust me!

Leah, I can't wait till you get back. I hope you'll pick back up with the Foods thesaurus. I'm sure that after this Cakes & Pies SE, I'll have plenty of entries for you.

You've never heard of Donettes? I ate those like crazy when I was pregnant (really, I used pregnancy as an excuse to eat large quantities of them).
