As I posted in an earlier blog about having ‘survival food’ stored in my closet, I have decided I needed to start using it. I was having my Sunday after church dinner and we enjoyed  the feature of the day, hominy casserole using a gallon can of the hominy. I served it with thin cut pork chops, fried tender and crisp~

The huge hominy casserole enough for a crowd. What was left over, I cut into individual servings and froze to enjoy later.  In my family, everyone goes home with a meal for super too.

Black eyed peas seasoned with bacon, this is the favorite of all vegetables when they are fresh.  Canned~ well not so good, pretty awful.

I buy turnip greens and mustard greens when I can find them and freeze them.  Grandmother McWhorter always had some leftovesr on her stove, I loved them and I loved her.

There was a big bowl of the black eyed peas I worked on all last week, fresh turnip greens (Wall Mart), mashed potatoes with cream gravy, Austin’s tasty tomatoes and English cucumbers from his garden, radishes from Debbie’s garden. Top it all off with buttered corn bread. Someone else passed on the dessert but Debbie and I enjoyed  Haagen-Dazs Gelato Vanilla Caramel Pizzelle ( fancy name for Eskimo Pie).

It takes about three minutes to stir up a pan of corn bread,  bake it 20 minutes and it is ready for some butter and raves!
