My mother-in-law has been in Georgia for 24 hours and already we have completed bombarded her with Southern cliches. A stop to the local farmer's market meant a purchase of everything tasty and local,: peaches, watermelon, and boiled peanuts. We led her to believe we were boiled peanut pros, but alas this was the first time I've had them in years. Apparently I forgot how to eat them?
Excuse the fact that I have such issues eating food. The shells are soft too, I really shouldn't have these problems. The haul was pretty good, actually:
Good thing we filled up with tasty food because we had a crazy ride around with our neighbor on his ATVs. Wanted to make sure MIL thought we traveled like that all the time. Cars are for silly town folk.
Don't worry, I think she had fun. Planning a dinner out at a Mexican Restaurant and then trivia night where we can dominate once again with our super brains. Or know random facts about pretzels. True story: I was the only one once who knew a question about the origin of pretzels. Awesome or sad?
What's the local food speciality where you live?
Peaches, onions, southern food in general. I don't know much about the southern food, but I like the fresh fruit!
Do you like having visitors stay with you?
I love seeing friends and family, and of course having them with stay. But yes, I'm as OCD about my schedule as I am with everything else. I guess I need a lot of "me time".
