Black eyed peas…

Oct 10, 2008

Still harvesting black eyed peas...Super easy to grow...can even be seeded direct outdoors in the middle of August during the blazing heat. They germinate quickly and tolerate the heat well. First peas were ready about a month after seeding so it's a quick crop. They've continued producting steadily since. Fresh black eyed (or cow) peas taste great. I cook mine up with a sliced up jalapeno for some heat. Quite tasty. You can let them dry and store them for cooking later...or for seeds to replant. Next time around, I'll definiely plant more so as to get a bigger harvest.


Sushi at the Hallecks…

Oct 10, 2008

Homemade sushi at home....yum. I'm a veggie, my husband is not, but we both like sushi. So I thought...what the heck? Let's just make some. Yes, he requires two plate fulls....he says it's like candy. Shrimp and crab rolls for him...veggie avocado, cucumber and carrot rolls for me. Served with soba noodles in a soy/white wine shitaki mushroom soup. YUM. Needless to say, I couldn't finish all my food. I am now officially in love with my new mandolin slicer...I love excuses to buy kitchen gadgets.
