    Well maybe a little better; change them pintos for navy beans,
    then [ I know this is a honey board BUT ] take about a 1/4 stick of soft butter cover with black molasses, use your fork to squish and mix, then fork on to them hot biscuits.

    You'll think you died and went to Heaven !

    Then what do you do with the rest of the mole bodies? :shock: :lol:

    Naw, molasses are for breakfast. Just plain hot butter biscuits for supper...

    What the heck is chow-chow?

    I don't even want to know how moles entered this discussion. Unless they are star-nosed moles.

    HAHA! I got a good chuckle out of that Hobie!

    molasses = mole asses...............he put molasses on his biscuit, so what happened to the rest of the mole?

    chow-chow is basically pickled cabbage with other veggies thrown in for taste. The recipes will vary to the canners taste and what was handed down.

    don't much care for sorghum or molasses, a little too rich and sweet for my taste.

    Chicken fried steak
    home made biscuits
    gravy
    fried potatoes
    fried okra
    fresh sweet corn on the cob with butter and bacon grease
    peach cobbler with home made ice cream
    a little nap on the porch listening to the crickets and watching the lighting bugs snuggled up to the better half.

    Doh! :lol:

    Forgive me, but when you Southern folk start talking about "supper" and "moles," at the same time, I have to wonder! I've heard rumors....!

    I guess sometimes you have to wonder! The saying at our house is "if it don't outrun the kids, we'll probably eat it". I have to say though that I would have to draw the line at moles.....yuck :p

    Sounds like a good supper to me Iddee! G3's sounds awful good too though.... now I'm hungry and it's too late to fry anything!

    Hey, you better not get started on that stuff. Fred bread is nearly as addictive as beekeeping.

    I don't know about that, but it will bankrupt the local breadmaker.
    You'll never go back to store bought.
