What the Wannabes will NOT be doing on vacation in the future…

field peas

Picking AND Shelling a gazillion pounds of field peas.

8 hours later, and they are ready to blanch and freeze.  We, Bob Smith and Gigi worked overtime.  Ted even invited a friend over for drinks, and when she got here we announced that the evening’s entertainment included shelling peas.  Being a good sport, our friend Nicole of Vajazzling fame, pitched in.  Be forewarned people, picking and shelling your own farm fresh peas is a T-Total pain in the ass.  Totally worth the extra $8 per pound to buy them from your farm stand already shelled.

More Sock Monkey Movie Trivia

Titanic

We realize the degree of difficulty leaves a little to be desired.

We also could have put some effort into it and wet down the sock monkeys and put them in the freezer for a bit.
