Summer didn't work out the way I thought it would
I tried so hard to get this garden to work. I really thought that if I pretended hard enough that my backyard was California even though I am in Massachusetts, that everything would just work out fine and we would all get along. It didn't work out that way although we are still pretending and still playing the game.
I did pick a few heirloom tomatoes this morning. I also picked the blackeye peas to have for dinner
I love blackeye peas. Tasted them for the first time when I met Dr Food. I picked every last blackeye pea in the garden and will just use the little ones for snaps. Shelling them isn't so much fun.
So, I have no fancy recipe for these. I will stick them in a pot with water and a couple of big ole ham hocks and we will be set. Shhhh....I know this isn't really too sophisticated of a cooking post and somehow it seems so un PC to be eating this but once again, my best buddy in food crime and I will just close the shades so the neighbors can't peek in and see us.
