04 November 2012

It has been a nice weekend, and we got a lot done around the house. Jeff finally painted the front doors that were primed, but never painted, eight years ago! We are trying to get ready for the Historical Society Christmas Tour of Homes on December 14 and 15. Wish us luck!

My country roots are really showing for tonight's Sunday Supper! My dear friend, Elly Hobgood, gave me a "mess" of fresh young turnip greens from her plot at the Victory Garden. I also got a few baby turnips as well, and both were delicious! I also cooked a pot of pinto beans and made cornbread to go with the greens and beans. I also served some of the last hot peppers from the garden and chow chow with the beans and homemade pepper sauce with the greens. It really hit the spot, and my Southern country appetite is very satisfied.

Now on to next week and the election! I will be so happy when it is over, and if things go well. Fingers crossed...

The Menu:

- Fresh Young Turnip Greens with Pepper Sauce

- Pinto Beans with Ham Hock and Hot Chow Chow

- Braised Baby Turnips

- Buttermilk Cornbread
