The Mason-Dixonary: Meat ‘n’ Three

August 26, 2015 | By | Comments (4)

Hearing a certain word can tell you quicker than a road map that you’ve crossed the Mason-Dixon Line. Some terms are particular to the South, while others are just embraced more fondly here. Check back each Wednesday for more words that give voice to the spirit and soul of our region.

    South Carolina.. I’ve heard this a bunch. You get one meat and three vegetables for one price and usually Macaroni pie is included as a vegetable. Also in the south, mac and cheese is the boxed stuff you get off the shelf in the pasta isle at the grocery store with the powered cheese or processed cheese product. Southern mac and cheese is Macaroni pie. Full of real cheese and milk or cream and egg and bakes to perfection.

    Mix and match definitely, it keeps the house fresh looking and reflects the homeowners personality.

    I like to mix things up. That way if I see something I really like I will find a place for it even in my small place.
