Yes, I know it looks like green mush, because the guys teased me about it. When I spooned the mush into the frying pan, Tony's and Ben's eyes got big—it was not a pretty sight!
As my green mush pancakes cooked in the skillet, Tony and Ben started talking about not being hungry anymore. "I'm sorry, Nance. I'm not going to eat that stuff," Tony finally said. I could tell that Ben was thinking the same thing, but he was too polite not to say anything.
When I tried to flip over the green and white speckled blobs—they fell apart, which made the guys tease me some more, so I decided to just scramble them, like I do scrambled eggs. When they were cooked, I put some on a plate, and offered to be the guinea pig, and taste it first.
As Ben and Tony stared at me with serious faces, I took a bite. OMG! It was horrible! As I tried to spit out the nasty stuff, Tone and Ben burst out laughing, which made it hard for me to remove the green goo from my mouth, because I was laughing, too! Finally, after washing down our wannabe lunch, with water, I said, "I think I must have left something out of the recipe, because y'all distracted me or maybe because of the full moon. Here, y'all give it a taste."
The men refused to taste it, and I can't tell you what they said, but it was pretty funny! As I dumped out the bowl of green mush into the trash can, I laughingly said, "Quit laughing, Tony. This recipe was costly. I spent six dollars on the feta cheese, a couple of dollars on the zucchini, I used four eggs, the ground mint cost four bucks and..."
"Nance, can you make us some of your beans and cornbread?" Tony asked.
Y'all have a great evening!
