Sunday Afternoon Dinner

Tummy rumbling
Stuck at the end of the line; food obscured by hips and butts ahead

Tummy rumbling
Why did church have to last so long?
Smell of food; good home cooking Southern food

Tummy rumbling louder
I can see the start of the food!  Grab my tray and point out my lunch:

Fried Chicken (dark meat only)
Macaroni and cheese with lots of thick cheese on top
Fried Okra
Lima beans

All by myself, balance the heavy tray to the table with my family and order some chocolate milk; in the cup please, not the carton

Savor hot and tender chicken with crispy fatty skin; my favorite part.  Next macaroni and cheese with the thick burnt cheese topping all coming up in one bite. Sip rich and creamy chocolate milk and pop in a fried okra or two.

Tummy almost full
A lima or two stays on the plate keeping the chicken bones company

Sunday morning church and fellowship

I think it’s time for a nap

This post is brought to you from Red Writing Hood's prompt of describing a favorite meal and Sunday dinners at the PawPaw Patch
