First chomping

Cooked our first mess of black crowder peas this afternoon. They weren't as big as the ones my Dad used to grow but they were still pretty tasty. The liquid from the cooked peas is sort of a dark brown and has the same taste. To make it right I added some Crystal hot sauce to my serving and the memories were there.
Wife picked another small bucket today of just ripened peas so I will be watching TV and shucking those rascals soon. Will put them with the other two cups of shucked peas I am holding in a sealed container in the refrigerator and make a big mess of peas for some of the grands to try. Probably over southern cornbread, ie. cornbread made only with cornmeal, buttermilk, and spices, baked in a 450F oven for 20 minutes in an oiled 12 inch cast iron skillet. Probably add some chopped onions fresh from the garden in with the peas and a little garlic to boot. I have to stop here as I'm drooling on the keyboard. <G>

Be careful with Cornmeal my Diabetic friend. It is toxic to the both of us:

the very early nineties and have been on insulin of one sort or another since. I'm shooting 45 units of Lantus at noon nowadays and am doing much better. I've learned to eat the high sugar stuff in small batches. My cornbread has no sugar at all in it, it's southern cornbread, a staple in the south, particularly when money is short. I can remember when my Dad had been on strike for several months back in the late forties that we ate cornbread and milk for breakfast, cornbread and beans for dinner, and, if we were lucky I could get a raccoon, rabbit, or a few squirrels for the pot. I still like all those foods but in moderation nowadays.
At my age, I no longer fear death or even illness anymore. 42 micro-strokes, 4 major strokes, 2 heart attacks, 1 coronary bypass, multiple stents, both carotids reamed out, etc., etc. I am going to eat what I want to eat but in moderation now.

Hi George,

"My cornbread has no sugar at all in it"
You are scarring me. You are not counting sugar. You are counting carbs (sugar is only one kind of carb). Your cornbread is WORSE that eating a bowl of sugar on your system. Below your chin, cornbread and table sugar are exactly the same thing to your body, except that table sugar takes longer to be converted to blood sugar (mind you, not much longer)
What you are doing to yourself is what is called the "Tsunami Effect". This means you are flooding the ever living shit out of your system with blood sugar (an organic solvent at those levels) , then taking a poison (insulin, etc.) to bring it back down. I would be extremely surprised if your "strokes, heart attacks, etc." are not caused by these wild swings. All of this is widely documented too, so it should be no surprise to anyone.
I just lost a dear T2 customer a few months back. He could not kick the carbohydrate addition. His treatment route was pretty much what you are doing. First he lost one foot. Then the other. Then his kidneys. Started losing his vision. Lost feeling in one arm. Two massive heart attacks. Dialysis. Second heart attack killed him. I can still smell his scent when I go into his office. It breaks my heart. He was a really, really dear man. He committed suicide on the installment plan. An oh the medical community got rich off of him (no self interest there).
You are scaring me. Please don't commit suicide like my customer. You are also a dear man. I can explain everything you need to know to become drug free.
Thriving, not just surviving. -T
p.s. There is not such thing as a "Healthy Carb". A bowl of "brown" rice is also worse than a bowl of table sugar on your system. "Healthy Carbs" is what got me. With what I know now, I can't believe I ever believed that absolute corrupt self interest manure.

one of my posts on the men in my family. Dad died at 71 of heart disease, grandad at 52, great granddad at 24, beyond that I don't know. Modern medicine has kept me going this long. One uncle lived to 90, he was blind and deaf from about age 70, modern medicine kept him alive plus his third wife worked hard to keep him going. I just have the one wife since 1960 and she's healthy as a horse but much more beautiful. <G>

Hi George,
Repeat after me. "I am the black sheep of the family. I will break the mold. I will live to be 100. Or until Todd learns to garden, in which case I will live to be 200!"
The quality of life doing drugs and carbs has got to suck: heart attacks and strokes. By all rights, you should be dead by now. I am glad you are not. There will a point were the allopaths can't put you back together again. :-(
If you ever decide to return to your ancestral diet (A.K.A Primal/Paleo) -- the one humans were actually designed to eat -- the carbohydrate addiction goes away in about two weeks (at least it did for me) and you can start tasting your food again.
I actually got myself into trouble because I taught myself to cook. The better I got at it the more I ate. I managed to keep my carbs down to less than 60 grams per day, but my calories where closing in on 4000 KCals a day. I finally gave up and did not eat anything for 2-1/2 days. I had over ate so much that I didn't spill a single keytone (means you are burning fat, your own or what you ate) for two entire days. Now I am back to keeping it below 1600 KCal per day and I my blood sugar is always under 102 mg/dl. Once I hit 77.
The food is so stikin' good that I couldn't put it down. I can actually taste nuances in food I never realized were there. Life is unfair.
Now to go kill some earwigs!

how my blood sugar dropped that fast. Couple of table spoons of sugar brought me back. Plus I learned to cook at my Mom's, and my paternal grandmother's feet. Can't remember when I wasn't cooking something, still do most of the cooking here. My wife is a former Yankee and you know they can't cook worth a hoot.

28 !!! You are lucky you did pass out! 28 is way past even the "crabby" phase (under 70).
What do you mean they couldn't figure it out. It was because of stupid drugs they had you on (insulin). The wild swings you get with drugs and carbs will kill you, literally.

I have heard that about Yankee cooking before. Always be prepaired if in such a situation with a bottle of hot sauce.
I am not much a fan of French food either. "Here kitty kitty. Hmmm. The cat won't eat it. Lets cover it with cream sauce and charge $350.00 for it. Oh and look, you can see three quarters of the plate too!"
I do like Italian food and am head over heal for Greek food. English food is just gross: kidney pie, etc..

Louisiana for 24 years and I lived ten miles from the Louisiana when I was a young lad and most of my friends were Cajuns, having come to Texas during WWII to work in the refineries and shipyards. I can make a good gumbo with a few ingredients and then a nice pot of steamed brown rice.

the five years we were overseas. Company gave us cash, we could both fly around the world back then for about $800. We nearly always went through either Greece or Thailand, both favorites. Good times but I don't get on airplanes anymore.
