From Texas through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and then deliver in North Carolina by 5pm.
That's the life of an expediter, your lack of planning is my job.
Since we are in Mississippi when I am going to bed, here are two recipes from that area for you to try and enjoy.

Mississippi Mud Cake
This recipe makes a delicious fudgy cake that is wonderful, try it warm too.
1 cup oil
1/3 cup cocoa powder
4 eggs
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
3 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
**1 small bag mini marsmallows (**added after cake is baked)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Prepare a sheet cake pan by spraying with baking spray. Using a spoon, mix the oil and sugar together thoroughly; then add eggs, cocoa, flour, vanilla, and nuts. Pour mixture into prepared pan and bake at 300 degrees for 45 minutes. Spread hot cake with miniature marshmallows. (Sometimes I run this under the broiler for just a minute or two to slightly melt the marshmallows before adding the icing).
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 box powdered sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1 small can evaporated milk
1 cup chopped pecans
Melt butter and add all ingredients; combine together; pour over hot cake.

Easy Mississippi Shrimp Dip
1 lb. Mississippi gulf shrimp (boiled,peeled, and chopped)
2 T. chopped green onions
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. Tabasco sauce
Mix all ingredients and serve with crackers or bread.
