Ten Best Barbecue Sides and Soul Food

First, a word about steaks:

We happened to see an article on TLC, “Ten Best Barbecue Sides“. We are always, always interested in sides because we are so concerned about meat, we don’t always do side dishes. In the BSP home, I like to eat meat on its own, but there are other people who live here. Meat…especially beef…has always been the superstar of the plate but we want to compliment it with something nearly as good.

Number six on the list is a sort of favorite and something BSP does very well. It’s called macaroni and cheese. Mac and cheese sounds simple, but if you’ve ever made it out of a box, continue reading. Aw, crap, I’ve made it out of a box but for a different purpose, like a casserole. I think mac and cheese out of a box should not be eaten alone.

If you want to do a tremendous macaroni and cheese, check out Patti LaBelle’s Cuisine: Recipes to Sing About. Serious business. If you want Southern-style comfort food, get that book now. There’s a Southern-style cookbook by Sylvia Woods. Sylvia is from my mother’s home town, Hemingway, South Carolina, and like my mother, she enjoyed success in the Northeastern United States, namely New York City. Sylvia started a famous restaurant in Harlem.


About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
