“Meatless Meals…So Good!”

No meat tonight for dinner… We’ll get enough protein from the Field Peas and Snaps … What are “snaps”?… They are immature pea pods cooked with the peas…If you like Black-eyed peas I’m sure like Field Peas… It started with me cooking green cabbage/potatoes … of course when I cook cabbage I think of a friend’s mother…When I spent the night she would cook cabbage and potatoes… I don’t remember meat being served then either… but, I do know… there was that big pot steaming with that wonderful combination… Along side was a skillet of cornbread  with butter…No need for anything else!… I’m making fried apples too…mainly because I need to use the apples, but it sounded so good together…Lots of butter/margarine, sugar, cinnamon and a little nutmeg … Yummy!… I could be an announcer for a cooking show!… I also cook my cabbage with butter/margarine, salt/pepper and about a tablespoonful of sugar…The sugar in most vegetables just enhances the flavor I have found…and spread out throughout the whole pot or skillet, not that many calories… Of course I know bacon grease  was used by my Mom and my friend’s Mom for seasoning… but, things change as we gain our own way of cooking… I’d better check the progress… it’s smelling so good!  …Try a meatless meal sometime… You will truly enjoy it!  

“My Kids”…

No wonder some of our kids didn’t eat very much at school…unless it was pizza… Papa John Pizza Day on Tuesdays especially… Schools serve some kind of meat we usually called “Mystery Meat”… because it all tasted the same, although it was served as chicken , beef or pork …Looked pretty much the same too … Of course if you put ketchup, mustard or hot sauce on it…it tasted the same anyway…which is what they usually did… My Granddaughter and Grandson have cheese and crackers as an alternative to the regular meal and so did our kids… Could it be this meatless meal   looks and tastes better than the other choices offered … No doubt!
