"Hey Grampaw, whats for supper?" (The Kitchen)

greenspun.com : LUSENET : A Country Singletree : One Thread

Tonite for supper, I machine baked a loaf of wheat bread , picked a bell pepper and broccolli stalk from my indoor SFG, pulled an onion from the kitchen garden raised bed and opened a tin of roast beef strips in gravy. Mixed the veggies and beef in with a light broth and let them simmer. Added fresh cut herbs from my window box as the simmer finished off. Then I went a little wacko. I popped in my "Moon River " CD, poured a glass of dry red wine and lighted the kerosene lamps and imagined I was dining "On the Green". :>) What was supper like at your house tonite.

I came from a family that considered a can opener a "secret family recipe".

Jay, I agree with Susan, your single. Man I would want you just for your gardens and worms. Cooking I can do and love to do. Iam a really good and accomplished cook. Unfortunately my kids don't always appreciate my efforts so we compromise with a little of what they like with a little of what I like.

Tonight we had popovers and beans. That was it. I felt crappy all day, had a migraine and didn't feel up to much of anything.

For dinner tomorrow my youngest son and I will be alone for dinner. He has requested calzones.

I was married, however my ex felt I wasn't "manly" enough for her tastes because I prefered cooking ,winemaking, gardening and research to motorcycles, beer drinking and tattoos.

Last night we had leftovers and snow. Woke up to about 7 inches of the fluffy white stuff-the most we've had this winter. When I got off work at 9 I decided this was a perfect day for a pot of chicken stew. I just dished up a mug. The homemade ww noodles are done to perfection. Karen

Tonight it is my barbeque meatloaf with scalloped potatoes--still drizzly, rainy, yucky outside, this usually at least looks cheery!! My ex could not even boil an egg let alone make a meal--you guys sound like heaven to me after a long days work!!

On rainy, gloomy, dreary and grey days I like a cast iron pot of minestrone and homemade beer bread served in one of my large black glazed latte cups and a glass of chilled dry red wine .

-- Jay Blair in N. AL (jayblair678@yahoo.com), January 31, 2002.

Hey Jay, Check out the post above. Seems there's a person interested in you--despite your having worms!


-- Jim-mi (hartalteng@voyager.net), January 31, 2002.

Jay, Sure sounds good esp the wine and the kerosene lamps. I work evenings so save my coooking for my days off. we had a swell ice storm here and the electricity is off all over the state and some won't have any for several weeks! I have my kerosene lamps and candles and natural gas heat so will stay warm email from work and will cook a pot of chili(Kansas chili) and some corn bread for the weekend. The "boys" (4 sons) are going to the brothers house with the big screen tv and the electricity and watch the superbowl Sunday. I am not sure if I will go or stay home and read( but will have to read by lamp light if I do.) Maybe I'll get a bottle of wine and just relax no power so no music unless I sing!

-- Karen Mauk (Kansashobbit@yahoo.com), January 31, 2002.

I sure wish we'd get some weather around here. This is friggin Minne- snow-da I live near Burrrr-midji and we have maybe 2 inches of snow. Actually I take that back.It is the crusty, icy stuff covered by a little dusting of fluff. It's been years since we had a snowday. I long for the days of not being able to get out. It is always such a good reason to stay home an do nothing but whatever you want. Of course it's even better when you have someone to spend it with. Ya know, it is at times like that when I miss having a partner most. Big sigh!!!!

Susan (feeling lonley tonight)Isn't that a song?

ATTN: .........Susan in Minnesota.....the guys can just pass this post by please.........Don't change your "screen name". Let's keep 'em guessing!! LOL Must be the woman in me..keep the menfolk on the edge, never give a straight answer, keep them guessing. Besides, all us Susie Snow Bunnies are fantastic, any one of us is a great catch! By the way, where in MN are you? I spent some time near Bemidji digging for Paleo Indian stuff with the US Forest Service a couple of times. I also have shirttail relatives way up north there. Boy do I have stories to tell. Love your misquitos (good grief, I didn't know I couldn't spell that!) TTYL I hope,

-- Susan in Northern Michigan (cobwoman@yahoo.com), February 01, 2002.

Thank-you Jay, I hadn't thought of minestrone soup! I make a mean loaf of oatmeal bread, that and the soup with my home canned grape juice would be wonderful! It is supposed to cloud up and rain again this week-end, so the suggestion will come n real handy!
