Anthony’s Southern Supper

Hey everyone! Hope you’ve had a great Thursday so far! Today was a busy day, starting with our 8 am meeting regarding our bariatric surgery program’s Center of Excellence re-certification. After that, the day was all non-stop…I did stop for a few minutes to have “hospital food” for lunch. Our hospital actually does a good job and there are healthy options available. We had an all-day diabetes class today- we serve lunch to the class and give them the chance to practice carbohydrate counting- and watch some excerpts of the documentary “Supersize Me” while we all eat lunch. I had grilled chicken, salad, a bit of steamed broccoli and cauliflower, half a baked potato with sour cream and cheese, and fruit.


After lunch, we had our monthly departmental staff meeting, then a meeting to plan a walk that we are sponsoring in September…and lots of other catching up.  My husband, in the meantime, was home cooking an amazing Southern “supper”. He left work after lunchtime to come home to meet the garage door “repairman”…is that a word? And, since Anthony was home already, he did all kinds of cleaning around the house and started on an amazing dinner. Now, I have lived in the South all of my life, but I’ve never really learned to be a Southern cook….my husband, however, has. He cooked a pot of pinto beans and homemade cornbread in a cast iron skillet. I added some yummy fresh corn (thanks to my friend Heather) and some garden tomatoes – oh my gosh, this was so simple (well, definitely simple for me since Anthony did the cooking – but seriously a simple meal to prepare) and so delicious!


And, yay, our garage door is now repaired and functioning normally!!

Have a good evening! Off to spend some time with the chef and maybe go for a walk. Goodnight!

  1. Awesome! What a clever meal to prepare. Anything that has cornbread with it is an A+ in my book. Mmm and the tomatoes look so fresh and delicious.

  2. There isn’t much better than skillet cornbread.

    Your tomatoes look terrific. My regular tomatoes aren’t doing so hot but I’ve got grape tomatoes like crazy…love it!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Wow meetings meetings meetings! I’ll bet it was so nice to have a clean house and hot meal to come home to. Nice job, Anthony!

  4. Skillet cornbread sounds amazing! I love garden tomatoes, too. What a yummy dinner 🙂

  5. I have always wanted to make cornbread in a cast iron skillet… Your dinner sounds delicious!

  6. Yeah for fresh food! Tomatoes & corn in the summer are so sweet! I love corn bread, and never seem to make it. There is a really yummy sounding recipe in this month’s cooking light I want to try out.

    Your husband sounds like such a sweetheart! Oh, and I looove cornbread. Making it in a cast-iron skillet is what it’s all about!!

  8. I’ve never tried corn bread before, I think it’s only something you eat in the US, I may be wrong though 🙂
