Country Boys Can Survive

OK OK ~ so Ima sittin' here earlier this morning, tryin' to kickstart mahself up wit a cuppa dat good black Community Cawfee ... and the dang 'lectric telephone rings! Who in tarnation be calling me so dadgum early, huh?? After muttering a couple expletives, I pick up dat phone ... and it be mah farmer frien, the veggie man, callin' to let me know he just picked a buncha fresh produce. So ... he say: "Chef, you git yer badself out here lickety split and I'll give you the special redneck discount." I dunno how he knowed I was a redneck ... mebbe it was my white socks & all dem empty Pabst Blue Ribbon beer cans in the back of my truck? Anywhoo ... I just returned wit a truckload of fresh produce: homegrown tomatoes, cukes, onions, beets, peppers & chiles, watermelon, cantalope, cabbage, fresh green beans, zukes & yeller squash, apples, etc. First up ... gonna make me a homemade apple/gooseberry pie. Country boys can survive...
