My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Chick Pea Salad

Can you believe we are coming up on our unofficial last big cookout holiday of the year. It just seems like a week ago I was talking about our first. This summer has gone by way too fast for me. At least my freezers are full and over 200 jars of stuff have been canned. I don't think anyone in my neighborhood will good hungry this winter.

This is a simple little salad to add to your festivities. I love chick peas!

Chick Pea Salad
6-8 servings
print recipe

2 cups cooked or canned chick peas, drained
1/4 cup chopped pimento, roasted red peppers are also great
1/2 cup cup chopped green pepper
1 cup chopped celery
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/2 to 3/4 cup good mayonnaise
2 to 3 tablespoons prepared horseradish

Combine the chick peas, pimento, green pepper, celery, salt and pepper and toss lightly. Combine the mayonnaise and horseradish and stir gently into the mixture.

Just before serving arrange on crisp lettuce.
