Chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes with cream gravy. It’s a coronary depth charge.

all day everyday if there were no consequences.....do you prefer the white gravy on both the CF Steak and mashed potatoes.....or white gravy on the CF Steak and brown gravy on the mashed potatoes? I prefer white on both, but I know some people prefer it the other way.

I like seafood boils (like Boiling Crab style) with crawfish/shrimp, sausage, and crab/mussels/oysters.

my first introduction to this meal was when I was a kid....like 5 years old, the only steakhouse near my small town in WV was a Bonanza Steakhouse (I assume they still exist?)....and they had a kids meal where it was country fried steak sticks and you dipped them into the white gravy! Those and some chocolate pudding from the salad bar and I was in heaven back then.

Yes, there are still a few Bonanzas out there. I believe that the same company operates Ponderosas. Bonanza was founded by the guy who played Hoss on the show. When I was a kid, there were a lot of them. It was one of the first family steakhouses, and it had all sorts of cheesy references to the show. Like all the other old family steakhouse chains, it faded away over time. I thought it was gone, but I drove past one in the Midwest a few years back. I looked it up out of curiosity, and sure enough, there were a few of them hanging on. I think Sizzler still exists out west. Outback has pretty much conquered that niche, though.

never was a fan of chicken fried steak (because I never had one that made me think "wow Im glad Im eating this instead of a regualr steak") but this wagyu fried steak I saw recently on youtube makes me wish i had an excuse to go to Mississippi:

Yeah, there are 75 bonanza and ponderosa steakhouses (combined). Fwiw, there are 270 Sizzlers.

That surprised me, so I looked it up. Other than one location in Kissimmee, Florida, there are none east of the Rockies. There used to be a bunch of them here. They weren't very good and never seemed to be doing all that well. I guess the company consolidated on the west coast at some point.

when I was young (pre-school and summers), I would get dropped off in the morning at my grandmothers.....she made biscuits and gravy for me every morning from scratch! No frozen biscuits or gravy in a jar. I can't imagine anyone taking the time every morning to do that now.

I think they are often blended together, but there is a slight difference between Southern Food and Country Food. I consider Gravy and Biscuits more country.

I have always thought of biscuits and gravy as the entree....with usually eggs, bacon, etc. as the side.

P.S. Like you, I regard biscuits and gravy as country food, not southern cuisine. I suppose it is more common in the south.

The difference between southern and Cajun cooking is spice. Cajun is about spice. I can't define southern cooking.

Cajun is a cuisine associated with a particular region of Louisiana. It is distinct from Creole and traditional southern fare. Cajun seasoning makes its way into all sorts of things, but putting Cajun spice on a hamburger does not make it Cajun cuisine.

at the same time, isn't there a lot of crossover between Cajun and Creole food......in a similar way as "country" and "southern" food?

Yes, largely due to the physical proximity of Cajun country to New Orleans and vice versa. For example, both Cajun and Creole have a version of jambalaya. If you order jambalaya, and it contains tomato, it is Creole. If there is no tomato, it is Cajun.
