I'm learning alot from this thread about how different parts of the country eat.
Beans belong in chili along with ground beef
Sugar does not belong in cornbread
Pineapple and pepperoni is fine on a pizza, especially pepperoni
I love grits and I like okra, grits are supposed to have salt, pepper and cheese, maybe some eggs in them or shrimp, not sugar unless eating it as a dessert.
I'll eat okra fried, boiled and pickled
never heard of raisins, carrots or peanuts in spaghetti, sounds disgusting, used to have cajun neighbors that put hot dogs in it
