The garden is gradually winding down, but we sure have enjoyed the fresh veggies all summer. Hannah's in the pea patch picking a mess of peas! Could there be any better lunch??
This year she planted Pink-Eyed Purple Hull Peas and California Black-Eyed Peas: Straight from the garden to our resident pea-sheller...Granny! We love sitting and shelling peas together because we know the end result will be peas and buttered tomato biscuits for lunch. Does that sound southern or what, y'all?? Granny gave Hannah her old pressure cooker and taught her how to use it long ago...ooh, the veggies that have been cooked in this very pot through the years: While Granny and Hannah were cooking the peas, I baked the biscuits and sliced the tomatoes--a lunch fit for a queen!
As you can see below, Granny eats her peas with chopped, sweetened tomatoes mixed in. This is the way my dad always loved his peas, too. Hannah and I top our peas with her garden zucchini relish. Yum!So...what was for lunch at your house today? I don't think you can name anything better than peas! :)
