And then there were four. Welcome back to the 2014 Southern Weddings Mason-Dixon Madness Tourney! We have whittled away from 64 and now have our top main, side, sweet and drink!
I have been lucky enough to visit the original Krispy Kreme location on a number of occasions, because my sweet daddy grew up in the Winston-Salem area. I admit that I am a sucker for that Hot’n Now sign, but never, ever did I think that peach cobbler would miss out on the title of best sweet in the South.
This cobbler/donut vote was the closest, and with only a handful–ahem, seven–votes separating these two delicacies, I am still in a bit of denial. We are also parting ways with Lisa’s beloved mac and cheese AND Nicole’s champion pick, sweet tea. Yes, the bubbly cherry beverage from Salisbury, NC is moving on to the Final Four!
Here’s how our bracket is looking now:
I guess your weekend meal is set: a big plate of BBQ with a biscuit, washed down with a cold glass of Cheerwine and finished with a Krispy Kreme donut. Then, place your bets and pick your favorites for the championship match-up.
Good luck! (RSS readers, click through to access the poll.)
P.S. I am counting down the days until peach season so I can make a big ol’ batch of homemade peach cobbler. Y’all are invited, just bring the sweet tea ;)
