My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Fried Cucumbers

My dad absolutely loved fried cucumbers. He would find the biggest one he could that had started to turn yellow and bring it in for mom to fry. We all loved them. Don't use those little sissy cucumbers, it needs to be at least a foot long and as big around as the end of a baseball bat.

Number of servings will depend on the size of your cucumbers

Beat one egg. Add 1 cup milk, or buttermilk. Peel and slice 2 or 3 cucumbers. Dip in about 2 cups of cracker crumbs that have been mixed with a 1/2 cup cornmeal. Lay out to dry a little, then dip in egg and milk mixture and then again in cracker crumbs. Fry in oil and butter until golden brown. Sprinkle with salt to taste.
