This is my last post about recipes from Gooseberry’s Game-Day cookbook. I will be giving away a copy of Gooseberry Patch’s Game-Day Fan Fare Cookbook on my World’s Best Cookie post this Friday, June 21, 2013. Here is a link to that post to leave me a message to enter for the cookbook giveaway. I have enjoyed this cookbook so much I could have blogged abount many more recipes in it. Like all of Gooseberry’s cookbooks, the recipes are simple and delicious. A lot of the recipes even have ingredients that you would already have on hand. Gooseberry cookbooks would make great wedding gifts. I know you will enjoy this Game-Day cookbook too!
Many of you already know that I grew up in L.A., lower Alabama. I specifically grew up in Mobile, AL. I have so many memories of seeing Boiled Peanut stands on the side of the roads. I love boiled peanuts and you can get them everywhere in the south. Most convenience stores sell boiled peanuts. Earlier this month on our way down to Disney World, I noticed boiled peanut signs everywhere in Florida and south Georgia. It must be a southern thing. To me, peanuts are so much better boiled than roasted. When you boil them, they soak up all the seasonings that you put into the water. If you have never tried boiled peanuts, here is a simple and great recipe I found in Gooseberry’s Game-Day cookbook. This Cajun Boiled Peanut recipe has a lot of seasonings and flavor but truly they were NOT SPICY at all. All of my children were able to enjoy them. You could cook them ahead of time and have them out for everyone to enjoy during a football game. They would also be great at a tailgate party. Once you try a boiled peanut, you will find that you cannot stop eating them.
