So, I was rummaging around on this sweet little page called Team Jimmy Joe, which claims to specialize in “nonsense and numbskullery.” Well, you know I I had to check that out, and I’m so glad I did because it is packed full of random junk. No, really. That’s a category, along with Bad Tattoos and Funny Family Photos and …

Redneck Recipes! 

I’m from down South, and I can tell you: If a redneck offers you sumthin’ to eat, you take it. The South is not many things, but one thing she is? Well-fed, bless her heart. Know why? ‘Cause we can cook!

So, here’s what my rummaging has wrought: Fresh Grilled Tomatoes. Yum!

I make these (well, not this exact recipe, but my memaw’s very similar one, and they are good.).  You can make them in the oven, too. Just crank it up to about 450 degrees Fahrenheit and give them a good 15-20 minutes per side. Blue cheese and roasted tomatoes are two of my favorite things on this earth, but parmesan is also real tasty, all excellent sides for a big ‘ol steak. 

OK, and these Easy Cheesy Weezy Shrimp & Grits? That’s the language of my soul right there, and this recipe looks crazy good. Now, I always double the butter and cheese in any recipe because I know what’s good and it’s not my responsibility to keep folks alive. Give them a good meal? Yes! Take care of their long-term cardiac care? Nope. That’s on them … although, if you wanted to give someone a “nudge,” this shrimp and grits recipe seems like it would be a heck of a way to go. It’s perfect, excellent for serving in a feed bag because you are going to want to bury your face in this deliciousness.

And then there’s Rocky Mountain Oysters. Well, if ya know, ya know….

And don’t even get me started on Verdeen’s Kitty Litter Box Cake Recipe. I know Verdeen. I wouldn’t trust her any further than I could throw her, bless her heart. 

Come try all this good stuff!
