Southern hospital- ity is based on the theory that you haven't been a good host unless you stuff your guests to the bursting point. After a week in Virginia and the Carolinas with my mother, my father, and assorted family, I'm about three inches broader in the wrong places Ah, but what gastronomical memories. It was almost worth it? In Virginia we feasted on soft shelled crabs, boiled lobster, crab soup, country ham and biscuits. I'm not talking about Smithfield ham. ...but the home cured kind that turns a mahogany sliced thin and served in biscuits for breakfast, most often accompanied by grits and red eye gravy. In North Carolina, it was field peas and collards cooked country style (which means a million extra calories), pork barbecue chopped fine and liberally seasoned with pepper vinegar, and my lifetime favorite - boiled peanuts. Boiled peanuts, like corn on the cob, area 0ne-time-a-year delicacy enjoyed by fortuna residents of the sandy soiled areas of the deep south. Those who have never eaten a boiled peanut have never really appreciated the true taste essence of the goober. To begin with you must have access to green peanuts, which means you have to either grow your own or know a peanut farmer. Once you have found the peanuts - and you need lots of them - you wash them off, put them in a big pot of boiling water with plenty of salt, and cook until tender {this you determine by sampling frequently and re- moving them from the pot when they're tender but not too soft). Then you spread newspapers on the kitchen table and devour the peanuts on the spot just as fast as you can peel them. Around my home North Carolinians eat shrimp the same way, but I'd rather have peanuts -- and the shells don't smell so bad the next day when you empty out the garbage can. Mother, knowing my passion for the "ground pea," had a big pot boiled up and cooling in the refrigerator when I arrived. I immediately sat down and ate most of them. She watched me shelling the peanuts and scoffing them down. Finally she asked, "Did you know that they fatten hogs for market on peanuts?" I finished up the peanuts anyhow. Tourists, apparently are being introduced to the de- lights of boiled peanuts, which have always been a close held family secret. I noticed, for the first time, that several roadside shops were specializing in peanut products and even advertised the boiled variety. Curious to see how boiled peanuts could be packaged commercially, I stopped outside Wilmington, N.C., and bought two pack- ages. Tourists beware! The overcooked, oversalted, miser- able morsels packaged for the tourist trade is an insult to the noble nut. What sacrilege to allow an unsuspecting visitor to leave the peanut belt believat the cam, merically packaged product represents the best taste effort of the boiled peanut. It must be a Yankee plot! Back in Texas, the bath- room scales registered a de- pressing five pound gain and a rear viewing in the mirror revealed just where my vaca- tion had been the most broadening. Next time I go home I'm going to wear a sign around my neck, "Do Not Feed the Animal!" 4,000 Attend Water Show A crowd of almost 4,000 converged on Island Marina in Seven Points to watch skiing exhibitions, race boats, eat fried fish and roast under a blazing Labor Day sun, during the Water Sports Spectacular. The show which was spon- sored by the Cedar Creek Lake Chamber of Commerce was termed a "definite suc- cess" by Judd Walker, chair- man of the show. ROOM ADDITION00;o:.
