Peas and Cornbread (and Cobbler, Too).

That there would be Linda Miller, the winner of the pea cooking competition (and the condiment contest, and the original pea dish contest) and Billie Samples, the winner of the cornbread cookoff, at the PurpleHull Pea Festival today in Emerson.  Competition was tough.  How do I know?  Because after the morning competitions, the entrants and those who had gathered to witness the proceedings were allowed to sample the entries.  There were some mean good eatin' there -- cornbread of all shades of white to dark yellow (dry to sweet), unusual items like a Pea Zucchini Bread and Pea-Mole Dip (think guacamole, but with peas), and of course the peach cobblers (because what goes better with a pea dinner than peach cobbler?).

Friday To-Do: Pink Spiders

PINK SPIDERS8 p.m., Vino's, $10.Since 2003, Nashville soul-pop-punkers Pink Spiders have cranked out records, toured incessantly, harvested some mainstream attention and rubbed elbows with industry heavy-hitters, all the while remaining true to a trashy, gritty, hip-grinding sound for which they cite the Cars, the Who, Marvin Gaye, Cheap Trick and a host of others as influences.

Aw, Shucks.

Lots of food-related festivals going on this weekend.  My choice -- the 20th Annual PurpleHull Pea Festival and World Championship Rotary Tiller Races down in Emerson.  Yeah, it's a long drive from Central Arkansas.  But that's nothing compared to the fervor in the fields, the kickup of dust and mud from competitors with their highly tuned machines, the slide of thumbnails along cylindrical hulls filled with those fabulous peas...
