Full article at Slate here. Oh my. The author of this article goes to great pains to be sure we know he/she loves to cook, loves cookbooks, loves to write about cooking, et cetera. That’s nice. The first point he/she makes is that cookbooks, more than other sorts of books, are given as gifts. This
1836 I had a hard time getting the information apart from its object. I *think* this was 1838. I chose to not crop this photo. Ditto Look how blue that sky is!
We did our Greenwood errand and then looked around, guided in no small part by the book that Daughter C. found at Square Books in Oxford, Mississippi and gave to us last weekend, Off the Beaten Path Mississippi : A Guide to Unique Places* by Marlo Carter Kirkpatrick (2010). We did our errand, parked, and

we’re back! Not exactly to where we left off– my time machine backup was a couple of weeks out of date– but still. No more unbacklighted keyboards for me! Thanks for your patience.
Dogs…the only true love money can buy…!(wish I could say that I was the originator of that thought, but I wasn’t. It’s still true, though) Yes it is.
I do so wish my computer was working. I’ve taken a photo– good thing, too, because Rocky just got up– and will post it as soon as I am able. They were laying on the kitchen floor. Rocky was pointed this way <– and Missy that –> ; his hip was tucked in her belly.
is an interesting place. We had the opportunity to travel to Greenwood, Mississippi this afternoon. I wrote a bit about Greenwood, home of Viking, here. I’ll share photos as soon as my RAM is reseated. I have photos of some antebellum churches in Carrolton, Mississippi, also. Back on the Farm later in the day, we
and taking my camera with me! Who knows? Maybe someday soon I’ll be able to post photos again. I have an appointment with the certified Apple repair folks in Columbus!
Have you noticed that nothing works anymore? Nothing hasn’t worked for a very long time. I can’t tell you what number can opener we’re on. Mr. Big Food is lobbying for an electric canopener. I am lobbying against, at least until we can find a reliable handheld. Ensure backup first. Swiss Army knife? What does
It is if it’s almost 9pm Central on Fathers’ Day and your eye glasses were eaten by your dog last night and your computer’s RAM needs to be reseated and you are typing on the computer that you & Kat’s Adult Male Role Model really really hate and you’ve had to re-light the Den because
As I … why aren’t PC keybpards back;oghterd? As I mentioned, my Genius computer is acting up. Mr. Big Food lent me the computer he really really hates. Thanks. Insert a lot of complaints. Oh for crying out loud. I just let Missy out and the frog came in and Rocky was too excited by
Get set for more complaining. My RAM has been unseated. I don’t know how this could happen, it never moves from its spot inside my computer which never moves from my desk. I blame Missy because, you know, the toothpaste went missing this morning, too, and I’m certain Missy’s to blame. The good news is
Delicious. Mr. Big Food tells me he found the recipe for these stuffed pork chops written in Gran’s handwriting on the backside of the cover of one of his crappy old cookbooks. And yes, those are prunes. Both Mr. Big Food & I think it’s a put-together recipe. Here’s what you got. Put it together.
Green Graceful Glorious Garden
Just ignore those cabbage and squash This is the late bean/corn garden. I already have corn planted but you just can never have too much corn. Last year was the first year I’d ever grown corn. What a learning experience! Unfortunately, when I planted corn this year I’d forgotten what I’d learned. Birds pick planted
That’s round zucchini and some onions I pulled and found in the crisper and some baby carrots. It is true that that the German lettuce is slow to bolt. That’s right. Gordon’s Fish Filets, OreIDa tater tots, and onion rings from the Georgia Company. Do check out that link. Mr. Big Food & I both
I’ll update with the links tomorrow, but I’ve talked about mammalian behavioral development before. Missy had a Terrible Tuesday and a not so good Wednesday, especially late in the day when Mr. Big Food was home. Thus, his comment when we calculated, based on the model of dog-human development which has the first 15 years
Pine cone for scale After Missy’s Terrible Tuesday, we got out early this morning. I first took Missy to the pasture where she almost drowned. Just kidding. She walked way out on a sandbar and was only knee deep but then she turned left and was in put to her neck. I laughed out loud.
