Buttermilk is great to cook with, but I can't hack it straight. Guess I just ain't country enough.

Mine would fill a glass with buttermilk, then corn bread.  I tried to like it.  I really did.  

Same. I’d share with him and loved it. I try it again every few years when I’m nostalgic and can’t do more than a few bites. His dad was from TN so maybe we’re related! Haha

My granddad used to drink tea-coke out of a saucer. Mix Coca-Cola with iced tea. I have no idea how he came up with that combo, but it wasn't horrible.

Why a saucer?

I have no idea. Drinking out of one was a thing with old folks.

Yep, the great grand parents would drink coffee, and always made sure there was coffee in the saucer which they would drink after emptying the cup.

Isn’t everyone from Tennessee related?

In my defense, most of my ancestors settled in Texas before Texas was a country.  My great grandmother moved to Texas from just outside of Sevierville, TN in a covered wagon sometime around 1900.  My great grandfather was born on an Indian reservation in Oklahoma.  Any shortcomings I have can be blamed on those two.  /just kidding Mama and Papa Phillips.

Apparently buttermilk doesn't go bad when it gets hot within a day. No idea, I've never googled it. Any how apparently I would hide bottles as a toddler and drink them later per mom. So she put buttermilk in them.

To this day about twice a year I will buy a quart of buttermilk and drink it. But I add a lot of pepper and a dash of salt. It lasts under 24 hours.

My great-grandfather used to drink coffee out of a saucer. He had the shakes real bad. Young County, this was.

Spending summers @ my Grandparents S. of Shreveport.

50 acres available on their place + all the SwepCo utility easement for high voltage lines on Boggy Bayou that you'd want, a couple of other kids 1/2 a mile up the dirt road, bottle rocket wars from 50 yards away, cattle to monkey around with, a 1/4 acre pond down the hill with always eating sized bream / shellcracker & Poppa handing us a .22 & boxes of shells without even glancing @ how to operate it, neither him nor Nana ever said "be careful" (not even remotely how I'd go about it these days).

Lather, rinse, repeat from around age 8 to 12, then picked up again @ 14 to 17.
