Smothered Pork Chops

Country Steak and Gravy

Macaroni and cheese
Yams
Rice
Creamed potatoes
Butter beans
Creamed corn
Green beans
Collard greens
Squash casserole
Black eyed peas

And two desserts, a choice of banana pudding, peach cobbler or the gooey butter cake of the day.

Oh, and wedding cake I guess.

The one thing I am most excited about is out tater tot station during our cocktail hour. We have a baltimore themed wedding. Our favorite restaurant has this appitizer called Crabby Tots. Basically it is Tater Tots smother in Maryland Crab Dip (makes my mouth water just thiking about it). We decided that to incorporate this we are having a tater tot station. People can pit their own toppings and one of the choices will be crab dip. I am so excited to hear the guests reations to this one.
