And just like we’ve narrowed the field to eight! Today, we are saying goodbye to cornbread and shrimp & grits and red velvet cake (Amber’s championship pick). North Carolina’s darling Krispy Kreme donuts and my beloved sweet tea survive and advance to fight for the chance to make it to the final four! And don’t forget your vote counts! Pecan pie edged out red velvet cake by 5 sweet votes.
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! Voting is open until the 27th!!
A little confession? I had a hard time picking between pimento cheese and biscuits because I think of them like the peanut butter and jelly of the South. I think I’m going to make a big batch pimento cheese this weekend. Feel free to join me, perhaps grab a slice of red velvet for dessert?
