And how could I forget catfish and hush puppies. Ironically, the best hushpuppies I ever had were from the freezer in a grocery store. The second best, I made. The best catfish I ever ate came from a roadside restaurant in Austin, Minnesota. The second best, I make.

Fried Catfish - no debate necessary - Uglelishes (pardon the spelling) in New Orleans, unfortunately closed pre Katrina. Other than that just about anyplace in the whole state of Louisiana.

Summertime - fresh peas, chow chow, cornbread, fried green tomatoes (to bump it up a couple of notches - with lump crab meat, jumbo shrimp, remolaud sauce on top)
chicken fried steak with white gravy

Oh Mr. JDC,

Good Job, Good Job! This is a Most Worthy Hijacking!

Please, Doc C - or anyone else from Maryland - forge this new path for us....

Thank you,

Joanie

Moved up to the eastern shore of Maryland (portion of MD on the eastern shore of the Cheasapeke Bay) about 5 years ago from Louisiana. The eastern shore constitutes a peninsula which includes portions of virginia, maryland and delaware. ESM is definitely southern compared to the remainder of md (except that part which is south of DC. Was definintly prosecession. Primarily agricultural. Buchanan, Tilghmans, Winders, Frederick Douglass, Harrit Tubman, etc. came from here. Until I moved up here, I didn't know this part of the country even existed. Yes, it's primarily southern but with all of the migrants from the northeast its becoming increasingly diluted. Would say it's not as southern as my Louisiana and your Ark/Tx/Ok is today.

JDC

Could never live on the western shore - anything west across the chesapeke bay bridge (Annapolic, DC, Baltimore). The MES is very quiet, rural, laid back, etc. We even charge you (toll at the bridge) to come over to our area, we gladly won't charge you so you can leave. Get's fairly hectic during the summer with all the trolls/lemmings coming from the western shore to spend their 1 week at the beaches. As an aside, many of the supplies to Virginia during the war were smuggled in from the eastern shore.

What the . Didn't know that I would be chastised for hijacking in the idle chit chat forum. Go figure. Smacks of political correctness which I totally disdain. My deepest apologies Ole.

Some good stuff, Gang!

JDC, you are quite right, the homogenization of regional culture into the greater melting pot of the US is troubling, and I think it robs all of us, paricularly our children and grandchildren. They can't be bothered with our quaint tales of how things used to be, because they're in a hurry, they have to stop by MacDonald's before joining their buds in front of Abercrombie at the mall.

(Also, JDC, FYI--those stocking caps are called toques up here in the Great White North. I know it can get chilly in Texas, but I can't imagine why anyone would want to wear one as a fashion statement. They are a neccesity up here in winter, but they mess up your hair, and for other seasons, forgiddaboutit!)

We've been talking about Maryland. I'm also curious about Deleware. I know they were a Union slave-holding state, during the war. Are they a Southern-flavored regional culture, or what? I also know that they think personal and business taxes are evil, makes me wonder about their infrastructure. Anybody have any knowledge of The State Where The Credit Card Companies Live?

The southern most Delaware county (there's only 3 of them) is similar to it's neighboring eastern shore Maryland. As one travels north toward Wilmington on the Pa/NJ border, it's overwelmingly nothern in feel/attitude. In addition for you Texans, it only takes an hour to drive east - west in Delaware and 2 hours to drive north - south. Nice beaches around Rehoboth, Dewey, etc. in Delaware. Thought I'd had great fried chicken before but it's incredible up here. Should be, chickens one of the biggest crops here. Perdue Chickens headquarters is in Salisbury on the MES. I can expect a note from Ole for this next one, Ft. Delaware is located just outside of Wilmington and Finn National Cemetery is just across the Delaware River in NJ just off the NJ Turnpike.

Apparently obligatory note enclosed. (it's in a secret code. To gain access, you must be a member of a society so secret that I can't reveal it's name.)

Tulsa's not a bad city. Home of J. J. Cale, Leon Russell, Canes Ballroom. However, did have one of the worst race riots back in the 20's. Black section of the city was actually bombed by the police or national guard. Many innocent individuals killed. http://www.montgomerycollege.edu/Departments/hpolscrv/VdeLaOliva.html

Ah, Mr. Steele,  I'm afraid not!  For it is the destiny of this thread to be hijacked over and over again....But, we can keep coming back to it!:D:D:D

Yes, it is. And according to my daughter when I asked her about some excessive cell-phone charges, El Salvador is also a city in California.
