JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

A little too much Protein!

I roasted a turkey breast for dinner last night and decided to have asparagus and sugar snap peas as an accompaniment.  For some reason, and don't ask me why because I never usually do this, I decided that I would de-pod the larger sugar snap peas.  I picked out a handful and was almost finished when I found this.......

Yep.  A grub.  Now, I love my protein, but I'm really not into this type of protein!  If I had not been de-podding my peas I would never have found this little chap and would most certainly have gobbled it down and probably never even knew what I was eating.  So the moral to this little story is to check all your vegetables for any blemishes, i.e. holes in sugar snap peas like this............

I only saw this little hole after I found the grub so I will be more observant next time.
