Sure, magnolias are lovely. Mint juleps are refreshing. But what I really, really love about the South are the roadside boiled peanut (“bawled p-nut”) stands. Even when peanut season is long gone, intrepid Southern entreprenuers pull their peanuts out of their deep freezers and entice tourons and Southern ex-pats alike to their salty offerings.
Let’s just say that Honeydew also enjoys them, and ate about $16 worth. Wow.
Mmmmm. Meat skins, also known as pork rinds, too.
Love the South. I hope to live out the rest of my days in Montana, but I’m always so happy to say, whether or not I am asked, “I’m from the South.” Just for starters, our peanuts are better’n’yurs.
