Let’s just imagine that it’s warm, beautiful summer. Weekends on the lake are my jam. Sun beams, fishing, burgers on the grill, warm swims, evening boat rides. *sigh*
There is this tiny little hole-in-the-wall restaurant near the lake, which I like call home in the summer, that serves what we Southerners call down-home cookin’– Amazing catfish, unlimited hushpuppies (seriously!), and the most amazing slow-cooked seasoned white beans with a house-made jam-like Sweet Red Pepper Relish on the table. This stuff is just plain addictive. After batches and batches of ehhhh ok results, I finally nailed it.
