Short of that you could buy a large cut of pig and break it up. It really is cheaper that way.

Aha. Found this:
Black-eyed peas and their relative, crowder peas, are neither bean nor
true pea, but a subtropical legume. They have thin pods that are 8 to
10 inches long. If the pod is still green, so are the peas within, and
if the pod is yellowed, the peas are creamy white or pale buff,
depending upon variety. Fresh garbanzo beans, also a legume, but not a
true bean, are pale green to buff, with a hairy pod.

Sorry, I'm low on sleep

(Not sure about anyone else, but it's not dark until about 9:45pm around here in NE Indiana! My kids simply can't fall asleep until 10:30pm or so! It's driving me crazy b/c they're tired the next day and I stayed up too late trying to do MY things I like to do after the kids are in bed. I find myself kind of wanting some winter weather just so I can get my kids to go to bed at a decent time!!! UGH!)

Completely off topic here, but I have the same problem, year round. The kids won't sleep if they think the sun is up. So I taped foil to their windows and it makes their room really dark for a lot less than we spent on room darkening curtains for the master bedroom, where hubby has to sleep during the day. Even with those curtains, we had to still use foil in there, so I think foil is the best option, if your windows don't point out to the street and your neighbors will laugh at you.

Sleep deprived, cranky kids are awful. add in a sleep deprived cranky mother and wha-la, that's my life for the summer. I still love summer though.

Last night we got caught up on sleep last night... I told them regardless of where the sun was in the sky, we were going to bed early last night (since when is 9pm EARLY??) but they did it. I think my kids were glad to be forced to catch up on sleep. They knew they were tired, but of course, would NEVER admit it Smile So I'm actually NOT as sleep deprived as usual today! YEAH!


We have room darkening shades on ALL of our kids windows. Was worth the $ for us to get them. Never heard of foil. You mean as in aluminum foil, like Reynolds? Don't think my husband would let me do that. Good idea though.

Hope you get caught up on sleep soon too!
