Reporter: IT IS ALMOST

LIKE HAVING A THANKSGIVING

FEAST EVERY DAY AT MARTHA'S

PLACE.

SHE IS THE OWNER OF THE

FAMOUS SOUL FOOD RESTAURANT

IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN

MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA, FROM

THE DEEP SOUTH TO HOLLYWOOD,

CELEBRITIES LIKE TY

PENNINGTON AND NEWS ANCHOR

TED KOPPEL HAVE ALL STOPPED

BY.

FOR OVER 20 YEARS, MARTHA

HAS BEEN SERVING

UNDELECTIBLE FOOD, LIKE

CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS.

DAILY PRAYER AND LOTS OF

FAMILY SUPPORT KEEP THE

KITCHEN RUNNING SMOOTHLY.

WHAT I WANT PEOPLE TO SEE

IS JESUS.

AND SAY, HEY, I FELT JESUS

IN MARTHA.

IT IS ABOUT HIM, NOT ABOUT

ME.

WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH.

NOT AS MUCH AS I LOVE YOU

GUYS.

Reporter: NOW MARTHA

WANTS TO SHARE SOME OF THIS

HOMEMADE SOUTHERN GOODNESS

WITH YOUR FAMILY BY SHOWING

SOME NEW WAYS TO SERVE THOSE

THANKSGIVING LEFTOVERS.

Terry: WE ARE IN THE

KITCHEN WITH THE FAMOUS

I'M GLAD TO BE BACK.

Pat: IT SMELLS

DELICIOUS.

I PRAY THAT IT TASTE

GOOD.

COOKING?

Terry: WE'RE GOING TO

TELL YOU IN A MINUTE.

FIRST OF ALL, MARTHA, YOU

NEED TO TELL US A LITTLE BIT

ABOUT YOUR STORY, MARTHA'S

PLACE.

SUCH A FAMOUS SPOT.

HOW DID THAT START?

WHEN I STARTED MY

RESTAURANT, I WAS ON

WELFARE, AND PRAYING TO GOD

TO CREATE ME A JOB.

I WANTED TO WORK.

Terry: PAT AND I TALK

ABOUT GOD IDEAS ALL THE

TIME.

GOD IS NEVER SHORT OF THEM,

IS HE, PAT?

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU FEED

IN YOUR RESTAURANT.

IT ALL DEPENDS.

ON A DAILY BASIS, 150.

IT ALL DEPENDS.

Pat: TERRY, CAN I ASK

HER WHAT SHE IS COOKING.

Terry: LET ME TAKE YOU

DOWN HERE FIRST BECAUSE WE

WERE TALKING ABOUT HOW MUCH

TURKEY IS LEFT OVER AFTER

THANKSGIVING.

HERE IS YOUR BEAUTIFUL

THANKSGIVING BIRD.

BUT NOW WE WANT TO TALK

ABOUT HOW THE DAY AFTER AND

EVEN THE DAY AFTER THAT, YOU

CAN TAKE THE LEFTOVERS.

THIS IS A BREAKFAST BAKE.

IT'S WITH HAM.

Terry: WITH HAM.

I DO HAM AND TURKEY.

I DO, TOO.

MOST PEOPLE HAVE BOTH

MEATS.

THIS IS WITH HAM, AND IT IS

LEFTOVER HAM WITH HASHED

BROWNS AND EGGS AND CHEESE.

Terry: AND YOU JUST MIX

THAT ALL TOGETHER?

MIX IT ALL UP TOGETHER

AND PUT IT IN THE OVEN AND

THAT'S WHAT IT BECOMES.

TERY I

Pat: I THOUGHT YOU HAD

IT COOKED ALREADY.

Terry: YOU COOK THAT,

AND WHAT DO YOU ADD TO

THAT?

WE'RE GOING TO LET IT

COOK FOR TWO OR THREE

MINUTES, WHICH WE DON'T HAVE

THAT KIND OF TIME.

AND THEN WE ADD THE FLOUR.

Terry: OH, THE FLOUR.

Pat: OKAY, THERE YOU

GO.

Terry: SO YOU JUST

DON'T DO ANYTHING LIKE
