State had MTSU at home for homecoming and we had Scott, our neighbor over for some hotwings and football. We had to listen to the MTSU broadcast, but that was OK. Heather whipped up a batch of hotwings. The were a little more tame than normal, but we didn't want to kill the neighbor. She also made some artichoke fritters that were FINE. I made a sour cream/lemon dip for them, but they were just right by themselves. Definitly a keeper. The dawgs won and my belly was full. Scott brought an apple pie we finished the feast off with.

This is a different interpretation of shrimp and grits. I was out of yellow onion and celery so I substituted. The color is from red onion. Tony's got the good tasso again so it made all the difference in this dish. It is becoming a staple at our house.

This is another crock pot recipe. It is one whole chicken flattened with Italian seasonings over it. It is cooked all day. Then you take a can of cream of mushroom, 6oz of cream cheese with 1/2 cup sherry and cook in a sauce pan until it is smooth. Pour that over the chicken in the pot and go away for another hour. She served it with a buttery orzo and steamed broccoli. I would do this again, but not cook the chicken all day. It was a little too done.
You will have to ask Heather for this recipe. It was different from anything I had seen before. She woke up early (think about that one for a minute) and seared the pot roast on all sides. She added it to the crock pot with carrots, onion, bell pepper, tomato sauce, red wine vinegar, and some seasonings. It cooked all day. Then she let the roast rest while she extracted the vegetables and sauce and pureed them. It thickend up for a rich gravy. She sliced the roast and plated it over rice. Tanner loved it till Heather told him what he was eating..... We will make this again.
