Pictured to the left is a mighty fine bowl of vegetable stew. It was a gift from 12th district GOP high muckety-mucks Lawton Sack and Ric Stewart. Lawton played project manager and Ric apparently did the heavy lifting of acquiring said stew and delivering to the debate. A grateful pundit thanks them for their service.
The stew is from regional favorite Vandy’s Barbecue of Statesboro and is the subject of an ongoing
Peach Pundit world wide debate: Should English peas, or any green vegetable, be allowed in Brunswick stew?
Upon close visual and edible inspection, Vandy’s stew not only contains peas, but butter beans and green beans. I think there may have even been a bit of celery. What I had no idea that was even up for debate was the inclusion of carrots. Carrots. In “Brunswick” stew. Just chew on that for a moment. I did.
It ain’t right.
It’s good. Perhaps the best vegetable stew I’ve ever had. But the debate continues on.
There may be a review of the onion mustard relish pictured in the background at a later time. I suppose Lawton will tell me it’s great on ice-cream. Not pictured is the 25 pound bag of onions I procured on the way in to town at a roadside stand. Contrary to earlier news reports, I did not have to pick them myself.
All in all, thanks for the hospitality from Jim Collins, Lawton Sack, Ric Stewart, and the rest of the Toombs-Montgomery GOP. It was a well attended and well organized event.
