I enjoyed eating home grown parched peanuts while listening to stories by great grandpa Hilly.
I have always loved to eat nuts. From the soft shell peanut to the Very hard shell ‘Hickory nut’. Between sentences I am cracking open and eating Pistachio’s. We normally have pecans in our cereal and I snack on several kinds at night.
Our friend Judy from Maine was sure she would love ‘boiled p-nuts’ from the road stands in Georgia and Florida. She bought some and absolutely hated them.
I cannot think of a nut I don’t like (including many of my friends!). Every Christmas churches give out fruit treats in paper sacks, there is always some nuts included.
I usually have some salted p-nuts handy. Tonight these Pistachios are ‘Cajun’ style and a little hot, but I like em.
I think the Cashew is my favorite. Dad would spring for a small bag for Shirley and I in Sears at times. For a few years Sherry and I bought a hundred pounds of Georgia Pecans from her cousin. Once in the San Antonio area we stayed in an RV park in a pecan grove. Those Texas Pecans are good too!
Black Walnuts are probably my second best. Much harder to crack, but good. I love me some Black Walnut or Butter Pecan Ice cream.
But expensive or cheaper, I hear nuts are good for you. So along with an apple I try to have some every day. When I can (Like tonight) I add an orange and banana.
I am eating to live forever………… so far so good. ;-)
Is the hazel nut a little round shell nut?
Are you for nuts, or just nuts? (smile)
PS: When did the term nut become associated with ‘crazy’ acting folk?
