The inner city lady who upped sticks and headed country

So are the snow peas.
What the snow peas and the broad beans have in common is that they have finished all by themselves.
If only I could say the same for my essays.

It occurred to me on the way home that I have an essay to write. In one and a half days. Clearly I’ve become slacker as I’ve aged. Well, at least I’m not working to the stereotype of the mature age student.
BTW, how do you cook (or not) your broad beans? And do you shell them?

We always take the outer shell off. The lad is getting pretty good at that. (He also tries to shell snow peas, despite repeated explanations that they are different). On tiny beans we eat raw, only one shelling, generally outside.
If they’re bigger (or I’m bored with raw beans al fresco) we (clearly here I mean “I”) stick them in boiling water for a couple of minutes. Either in a pot on the stove or in the microwave. Then you can fairly easily remove the second pod. Then I apply olive oil and salt & pepper. I’m not really interested in doing anything else with them by then. Yesterday they were mixed with asparagus & string beans done the same way.

Perhaps you could try planting your essays in the garden and giving them a good water…
I’m sure the boy would enjoy it.
