But cooking is where both Holly and I like to be adventurous and we enjoy cooking together, creating together, eating together, and having her with me at a meal would make an MRE seem like a feast.
Fresh beef cut from a GOOD cut of meat and to the size you like is much more palatable and you can really tell the difference.
And we harvested and cleaned Chinese 5 color peppers and more Cayenne for drying.
We like spicy food and use a lot of peppers and these little colorful guys are HOT.
Holly's famous fried chicken, cornbread and our farm grown black eyed peas. Not only does Holly make a killer fried chicken, her corn bread is the best I've ever had. Its cooked in a cast iron skillet and always has goodies inside like crackins, peppers, or fresh corn nibblets.
And finally, we just shucked a bunch more black eyed peas in our first harvest of them this year (much more to go still on the vine. We dry them then put them in freezer bags and store them there so they dont mold. I can eat these babies almost every day.
So thats a sampling of how we eat around here. Fresh, differing, and made together as a family. If you come to our house to eat, you will be put to work as everyone gets in the act. This weekend, we tack fresh chicken livers, cook them up and add hard boiled eggs and onions for some chopped liver (to be spread on bagels).....makes me want to start right now!
