Heh. Phone keeps asking me if I want to fix the lighting. NO. Why would I want to fix these? They are a true representation of what I saw.
Judge Appoints Acting Sheriff Our little county continues to have problems on the law enforcement front. I’ve been keeping up and I’ll have much more to say on this. For now, I’ll just note that our little county is paying two sheriffs, one of whom is unable to make bail and is sitting in jail.
Some models are predicting snow for us. I don’t forecast snow, but what do I know? Grandma Moses’ work is a treasure. Link to works by, or about Anna Mary Robertson Moses at Internet Archive. Many can be “borrowed” (downloaded) for two weeks.
For commentary on this– the first of many– beef stroganoff recipes, go here.
The other day, Mr. Big Food announced that Beef Stroganoff was far & away the dish for which he had the most recipes. Over 50. As you will recall, Mr. Big Food has been culling recipes from spiral bound recipe books, and some classic American cookbooks, for more than 15 years. (FYI– Craig Claibourne, food
Flagrant Notice Suggested for City Traffic Lights The light was red but he was green, Or bold, or crazy, maybe mean. Well, anyhow, on through he sped To hit a truck. And now he’s dead. The author of this little oddity was William Wade who apparently earned his bachelor’s degree from William Harvey College in
This morning Rocky & Missy and I took a walk in the woods at the end of the watershed that fills the Lake. What a glorious morning! Chilly but bright. Quiet. I know the Country Mouse life is not for everyone, but I cannot imagine not being able to take a walk in the woods
Daughter C has managed to aggravated me, even in her absence. Seriously, Care. Do you really think that your old toilet paper rolls count for art supplies? I trashed most of it. I’m sure you could make something of them, but few folks are as as talented as you are. I love you.

I would like to sincerely apologize to all of the stupid sheep out there. You aren’t as stupid as I thought. Good thing Mr. Big Food insisted we keep the bottom gate open!
Some adjustments– since we served this with Pepper Chicken we omitted the pork, and we used lo mien noodles.
Okay– SueK, what do you think? This recipe was created using a plug-in, rather than me just copying & pasting from a Word doc. It’s stupid that the instructions have a number but I can’t figure out how to get rid of it. What do you think of the look of it, though? I await

To be honest, I had forgotten I had this crappy old book. It is shelved behind glass in the treasure chest bookshelf. Had you asked, I would easily pointed to all of Aunt Margaret’s books in the treasure chest. I’d just forgotten the title– which is one reason I do a once a year hands-on
“Marica?” Missy slid off the bed, sauntered over to Marica’s desk and sat down on the floor. “Oh! Hey Missy,” Marica replied. “What’s up?” “Ruff?” wondered Rocky. “Well, Marica, we wondered why you are looking so pensive these last few minutes.” “I’m trying to think of a name for something,” Marica said sighing. “Ruff?” “Oh.
What absolute nonsense. I mean seriously. How many pickle jars are going to remain unopened if we keep this sh*t up?
Had this soup been in a Soup Contest, it would have been a contender. It is terrific! Creamy without being too stiff, rich but still wanting a bit so you can keep sipping, perfectly flavored. Delicious! I made several substitutions. We are out of homegrown frozen zucchini but have an abundance of yellow squash. I
You will recall that the sheep have gone missing. After our excursion the other day, Mr. Big Food proclaimed, “They are probably across the cotton field by now.” I thought they’d headed into the empty 700 acres behind us. We were both wrong. I just sat there. I called Miss M for no reason other
