    GJan1 - You are so sweet to take your Dad his favorite foods on his birthday! I am sure he loved it. And I bet their coconut cream pie was delicious.

    We had the yummy leftovers for lunch and my youngest daughter and I had a girls night out together this evening. :-)

    Happy New Year to all! Hog jowls, black eyed peas (I hate these and only eat on January 1), greens, mac & cheese(for me), rolls, and Coconut Cream pie (for me) and Egg Custard pie for Daddy. All take out from K&W cafeteria High Point, NC. Today is my Dad's 86th birthday and that is what he wanted and he is a lifetime K&W devotee.

    Scalloped potatoes and ham (last of the leftovers :) in the slow cooker. Rolls and green salad as sides.
