100 random things that make me happy: #13

So, I had lunch with a friend's grandmother today. We went to a little meat-and-three after church and due to a comedic series of miscommunications, it ended up just being the two of us. She is a delightful lady, and we had a very enjoyable time. We both had chicken and dumplings (rather lackluster, unfortunately) but the veggies were divine. The mustard greens and purple hull peas were delicious and put me in mind of my own grandmother and sitting on the porch swing shelling peas on a late summer evening. My grandmother is 90 and under the care of hospice. But a little bowl of peas today reminded me of the good times we shared. And that makes me happy.

Lol! The first thing I had to do when I read this post was google mustard greens and purple hull peas...never heard of either of them!! But having read about them and seen some recipes they do indeed sound delicious!

I do love to go out for Sunday lunch...it always seems, regardless of the company, to be a good and pleasant meal wherever and whatever you eat! (And I include Indian and Chinese food in that because, atm, Sunday buffets are all the rage over here...) And you don't have to cook it or do the dishes which always seems to be more arduous on a Sunday!! Weird!
