Dr.and Mrs. Chris Ayers… Dr. and Mr. Alix Hiu… Chris and Alix and son, Wren, and Friends, Nick and Ashley, visited the Farm this weekend. Neither Chris nor Nick shot a deer.

As Sheldon might have asked, “Did you smoke a marijuana?” It is time to start remembering the movie, Cocoon. B/C all y’all pundits have lost your minds.
Nothing written by Socrates remains extant. That’s redundant, right?
The lost phone has been recovered. The lose was perpetrated by Aliens. My relief is great. Money doesn’t need to be spent to get me a new freaking smart phone. Stupid Aliens. Meanwhile, the book, The Imperial Presidency by Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. is being read by me. Learning, I am. That’s about as much
Mr. Big Food and I traveled to the Great City of Birmingham, Alabama today. In addition to my new Sac Friend (which you might equate with a purse to the total embarrassment of my Sac), I took with me my phone, a note book, my iThingy, and a crappy old book. About 45 minutes into

An article by Jennifer Graham at Acculturated made the rounds over the weekend. Titled, “Why Millennial Home Buyers Want Play Rooms Not Dining Rooms,” the article looks at the “decline of old-fashioned adulthood.” It was an interesting article with the obligatory stupid troll who said, What a load of crap.

Kat had a post a bit ago about some gluten-free gnocchi she’d found at her local HEB. Here is Kat’s recipe for Gluten Free Pressure Cooker Pot Roast with

When it becomes obvious that winter is upon us, no matter where we are, I make this, sayeth Mr. Big Food. This is a Big Food Favorite. I suggest it as a Saturday or Sunday Supper because it bakes 3 hours and you’ll be able to enjoy the way your kitchen will smell all afternoon!

So far, no reply.
The finished product– the little potato dumplings– are for tonight’s Marica Cooks Monday. We are having Potato Gnocchi Lidia from The Frugal Gourmet’s Whole Family Cookbook. The dish is named after a famous Italian chef, Lidia Bastianich. Once the gnocchi are made, it is ridiculously simple– butter, fresh sage leaves, and Parmesan– though I am going
My one regret is that I didn’t wind that rope into a big “BIG.” Mr. Big Food has just alerted me– there’s been another score in the game that is holding up the showing of X-Files.
Some with nuts, some without. These are yummy! Recipe from The Texas Experience: Friendship & Food Texas Style, A Cookbook from the Richardson Woman’s Club (1982) Recipe says it makes 6 doz.

We stand with you, all you Mans who are snowed in. Right on. ~~ In all seriousness, I did not see this until yesterday after Daughter C had left. I did see she & Jordo and Gilbert watching Television when I went to get a drink of cool water the other night. But I had
In the two column approach to life, we Country Mice sure do have a lot of +’s in our favor. You City Mice might preach to us that astrologically astronomically awesome events are about to happen, but we Country Mice are the ones who get to testify. Truth be told, I was just letting Rocky out
