The Help

I really enjoyed reading the book, The Help and watching the movie.  They fry up lots of chicken in the book and movie.  It looked so good.  Last night we had a couple families over and learned how to fry chicken and make homemade biscuits.  We had homemade strawberry jam, blackberry jam, mashed potatoes, veggies and Minnie's chocolate pie.
These are Minnie's pies-can't tell you about The Terrible Awful...you'll have to read the book.


After awhile Todd came in, his Mama is the fried chicken expert so he took over the reins for a while.

And we kicked back and sipped our sweet tea.  It took us 3 1/2 hours to do all this cooking!  And it was worth it-so much fun and so tasty.
