Some recent good ole country eating took place at our house!
Cabbage soup with small pieces of air dried sausage:
There is a country store in town that sells country foods like collards, turnips, and air dried sausage. When you go in, the sausage is hanging on a rack, not refrigerated. I bought 2 pounds.
Cabbage is on sale this time of year so we bought one and I made my cabbage soup. This is so healthy and good for you because its made up mostly of cabbage and tomatoes.
I also bought some raw peanuts there that we parched in the oven. These sat on the counter all week. Very convenient for someone to snack on. You just put your peanut hulls at one end to keep them separate.
The only thing missing from this country food was some hoop cheese. Maybe next time.
