Showers in the Baptism Pool

Published: Thursday, August 14, 2014 at 09:04 AM.

Noting it many times before, I love going to the Farmers’ Market, talking to folks, studying vegetables and getting my boiled peanuts.  On this particular Saturday morning, our weather was not so good – it was starting to rain and I needed to pick up the things that I could not live without on this particular day.


To be specific, I wanted a patty pan squash, some green tomatoes and a couple of bags of boiled peanuts.  As the rain started to drizzle down, I found three nice green tomatoes and one perfectly sized patty pan squash.  Patty pan squash look a little like an inflated flower and they grill up real nice.


All I needed to pick up was my boiled peanuts.  I wanted two bags, because it seems I never have enough once I get home with them.  Breakfast was bearing on my mind.  I was going to walk over to the coffee house in town and have a concoction of stone ground grits with country ham and cheddar jack cheese mixed in them. They top this mixture with poached eggs.


I’m not a very good egg poacher, but I do enjoy them – so I was looking forward to breakfast.  These folks’ grits are good too; good grits are hard to find.
