Last night, in honor of the election, I made several "state" dishes. I found the recipes on the fabulous website TasteBook. They were selling a cookbook called "Get out there and Vote" and they had so many fun recipes. I made good ol' Alabama sweet tea, Oklahoma cheese grits, grilled Texas style beef ribs, and Mississippi mud cake. Yeah, definitely didn't follow any sort of diet last night......at all! But it was election night and I thought it would be fun to make some good southern food.
So onto the snake portion of this post. When I was letting miss Daisy out last night I went back inside to let her do her business and looked to my right when what to my wondering eyes did appear.....a SNAKE! I was terrified. He was all coiled up and ready to strike. He was a few feet away from me so I got D inside and yelled for my big strong saviour. HA! Now, for those of you who know my hubby, he is completely and utterly terrified of spiders, bugs and yes, snakes. I couldn't even tell him it was a snake because I knew he would be half way out of the state if I did that, so I just said "honey you need to get out here quick!" He creeped out onto the patio and nearly jumped 10 feet in the air when he saw it. He ran in and got the shovel and his boots and came back out looking so redneck. Loved it!! After about 15 minutes of him going up to it and then running away he finally killed the darn thing. I later found out from the fabulous google that it was a small copperhead snake. Glad it's dead now! Oh and pay no mind to the snakes head. After it had been dead for a good while he started feeling confident and smashed the snakes head with his boot. What a strong man!
