For soul food sunday dinner, smothered pork chops, collard greens, macaroni and cheese, and cornbread is a family favorite.

The cornbread is also a plus, which means you'll leave the dinner table with a full stomach after eating this delicious meal. Dessert is always and options and I have linked to a tasty red velvet cake. 

Fried Catfish, Hush Puppies, French Fries, and Sweet Tea

Fried catfish is the logic choice and always a great meal to prepare on Fish Fry Friday's. You could fry any type of fish (fried trout) you like, however, in my opinion catfish is the best. You should serve the fried catfish with hush puppies, french fries, and all the sweet tea your dinner guest can drink. At last I must add, this is my personal favorite soul food recipes for dinner.

Barbecued Baby Back Ribs, Baked Beans, Potato Salad, and Homemade Pink Lemonade

Baby back ribs, baked beans, and potato salad are the perfect menu items for outdoor cookouts and backyard barbecues. Slow smoking the ribs is the way to go. Served those lip smacking barbecue ribs with oven baked beans and cold potato salad. To complete the delicious meal you can serve your dinner guest some old fashioned homemade pink lemonade.
