Boiled Peanuts

My addiction. Do I think about them every day? No. But if I see them somewhere, I stop dead in my tracks and remember.

The forgiveness of the shell as you squeeze to reveal the inner contents. The warm juice that trickles down your fingers. And finally, the salty, nutty innards that always leave you wanting more. And more. And more.

My mother and daughter think I have a problem. I deny it. I gingerly take a few out of the container when they are around. But when they aren’t in the room I race to the refrigerator, grab a handful and gobble them down with the speed of a jaguar.

Chomp Chomp Chomp…

Footsteps…

“Hey Mom, do you know where my… umm… what’s in your mouth?”

“NRFPHING”

“Mooommmmm…..”

Chewchewchew “Nothing.”

It’s all Morris Farm Market’s fault. They have the best boiled peanuts I have ever had. Furthermore, they are on the way to the beach house. I pass by them every Friday evening. And you can get TWO containers for under ten dollars.

I get one for me and one for everyone else.

I must say though… no one else has had any. I don’t know WHO keeps eating that second batch!

    Bwhahahahahahahahahahaha!

    Katherine, your photo editing of that I Love Lucy episode in the chocolate factory was BRILLIANT. BRAVA! And that happens to be one of my all-time favorite episodes. In fact, I have that in my I Love Lucy video collection.

    I agree! I love peanuts (nuts in general), however, boiled peanuts are the BOMB!

    Great post, my friend!

    • Not many people have had them before… I never saw one until a few years ago actually. They are SOOOOO good!

  • I’ve seen worse addictions. I think you should just keep denying that you have a problem. I’m just saying.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

    • I denied it all the way to Morris Farm Market Friday night when I got TWO large containers ha ha ha!!!

  • Ive never had boiled peanuts, despite driving by a kazillion roadside stands when I’m visiting my sisters and dad in Florida. They never sounded very appealing, but now you’ve piqued my interest, Katherine.

    • Oh you GOTTA try it sometime… just to say you have! I tried peanuts in coke… time for you to try boiled peanuts? Of course if you don’t you will probably live years past me, as my heart will give out much earlier from salt corrosion!

  • Now I am thinking of a boiled peanut-butter and jam sandwich.

    • Oh wow… and about a quart of gatorade I’m thinking. ha ha! My mom made herself a salad this weekend and I caught her shelling a few of the boiled peanuts in to the salad. That actually looked GREAT… the saltiness kind of like what you would get with an olive.

  • Where did my comment go? I left one 2 days ago 🙁

    • Oh No!!!! I didn’t see it!!!!! I don’t see it stuck anywhere either. I am so sorry! Now I am curious about if you have ever had a boiled peanut! 🙂

      • No, I haven’t. I’ve never heard of boiled peanuts, only roasted. I asked you how I could boil them myself and since my comment disappeared, I Googled it 😉 Strange that my comment disappeared like that.

  • Well it sure wasn’t me eating them. Hubby eats them when he gets the chance, and I don’t ask him to share, so your boiled peanuts would be safe around me.

    • My mother isn’t in to them and neither is my son. So when we get our “vat” of boiled peanuts, my daughter and I don’t have to share! Woo hoo!
