Well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit, nearly 1000 of y’all voted to send your favorite Southern bites and beverages to the Elite Eight! Welcome back to the 2014 Southern Weddings Mason-Dixon Madness Tourney!
Today, we are saying goodbye to pecan pie (Lisa’s championship pick) and Emily’s beloved deviled eggs. Krispy Kreme and Cheerwine, both native North Carolina delicacies, survived and advanced. Sweet tea is sweetly sailing along through the competition–I can’t say I am too surprised!
I am betting that the Elite Eight match-up this week between fried chicken and BBQ is going to be a doozy. I was born in the BBQ capital of North Carolina, but good gracious, I do love a good piece of cold fried chicken. My advice? Take your time before making your picks and daydream about your favorite memory of eating each delicacy before making your final selection. :)
Here’s how our bracket is looking now:
All four #1 seeds are alive and kickin’, with spots in the Final Four AND bragging rights as category winners up for grabs! Your vote counts!!

This week has been so busy, I haven’t gotten around to having my ham biscuit quite yet. To honor it after being voted out this week, I think I will have one for breakfast tomorrow. Feel free to join me, perhaps with a big slice of red velvet cake on the side?
