Because you can pull side dishes from the refrigerator all week, you'll be serving mini-banquets, not lugubrious leftovers. It's the meal that keeps on giving.Country ham, red-eye gravy and gritsServes six.Look for thin, pink slices of ham packaged in see-through plastic, preferably from Virginia or North Carolina.

I HAVE WONDERFUL memories of Easter Sundays spent with my family over the years. Joyful Easter services dressed in our Easter best, Easter egg hunts, and Easter baskets that would magically appear on the dining room table, filled with chocolate bunnies and jelly beans. The fun would begin the day before, when eggs were boiled and readied for dyeing. My dad was colorblind, but that never stopped him from supervising this event. So, ours was the only family on the block with Easter eggs in colors of chartreuse, pea green and brownish maroon.

As someone who believes the world is suffering from a serious shortage of good gravy, I tried to remedy the situation recently by whipping up some red-eye.Red-eye gravy is made with ham drippings. Other ingredients usually include a piece of ham fat and a cup of coffee. One recipe I used called for an unusual gravy ingredient, brown sugar. Red-eye gravy is not something you eat to clean out your arteries, increase your fiber or make you feel nutritionally correct. Rather, red-eye gravy is something you pour on ham, eggs, toast, grits or even tuckered-out turkey.

Although Southern ladies' lunches are a time for exchanging sentiments and stories, for celebrations of friends and families, loves and losses, they are also a symbol of the strength of the Southern woman. The kitchen was always the domain in which the Southern woman could exercise control and indulge creative impulses when all other avenues were closed to her. When the audience for her culinary endeavors was other women, her efforts and results tended to be even more spectacular.And no Southern woman would try to win support for a project dear to her without offering something to eat. For food to us is the great convincer, the great mediator, the way of saying, "I want to please you," as well as saying, "You are welcome here."
