It was a frigid 64° when I got up this morning. Refreshing. Making progress on the project that goes by the name, “Returning to the Civilized.” College football commences in earnest this evening and continues through the long weekend. Mr. Big Food is excited. As am I.
Apologies for the poor quality photo. It’s four years old and hasn’t aged well. Our Labor Day involved cutting a lot of grass and being stampeded by the sheep. Nothing too noteworthy, except… supper. Creative Cooking Grilled Hamburgers Deluxe are a Big Food Favorite– something we have at least once a year or so. This
All via Powerline’s The Week in Pictures Remember WWJD? Good times. How many will be crushed? “Cages of the mind” Wasn’t that a Twilight Zone? Read a book. Go outside. Grow your own. Ha. The Rifle Man Sears catalog. Catalog. Back in the crappy olden days.
Read the story of this most delicious soup here. And enjoy the “blurb” to this recipe from Saveur magazine: As a nation, we didn’t know we loved tomato soup until someone condensed it and put it in a can. That’s when it became a steady presence on our tables, a fixture in our pantries and
My apologies for not making clear that this is not a photograph of Campbell’s Cream of Tomato Soup. (There was a college football game on last night folks. I cannot be two places at one time any more than you can be!) Here’s the rest of the story. As you know, Kat is visiting the
It’s true! Last evening, Mr. Big Food grilled hot dogs stuffed with homemade ham spread and wrapped in bacon. Via Powerline’s The Week in Pictures
As I mentioned, Miss M and I went to the Prairie Arts Festival in West Point, Mississippi Saturday. By local craft-fair standards, it was pretty good. As an “arts” festival… it would have been nice to see some art or artisan pieces. (Where is Critz when you need him?) Many of the buildings on the
How crazy is this? No way no how anyone associated with the Prairie Arts Festival knew I had chosen Currier & Ives Chronicles of America for the Crappy Old Book of September, but here was a classic– “American Homestead in Autumn” (1869)– flying high over the entrance to the festival!
Our Neighbor Miss M invited us for coffee and pastries yesterday morning. It was delightful! Miss M made a peach pie, cherry loaf with powered sugar icing, and muffins! She served coffee and tea. And we communed– it was Sunday!– at her beautifully set table. We plan to reciprocate by inviting Miss M to our
but did you know that in 1947 the world produced 873,000 metric tons of asbestos? Canada produced 600,400 tons, the United States– coming in at #5– produced 21,800 tons, up 74% from 1946. CALL 1-800-LAW-SUIT NOW!! From 1949 Collier’s Year Book: Covering Events of the Year 1948.
yesterday: yesterday evening: That’s right. Miss M & I went to the Prairie Arts Festival in West Point, Mississippi and later Mr. Big Food and I watched the State game which didn’t start until 9pm. Today I am trying to resolve an issue in my library card catalog. TTYL.
In the hubbub of the weekend, it wasn’t until Mr. Big Food and I were on our way to our fourth Chiggerfest* that we remembered. Three years ago this weekend we– with the help of friends– changed our lives for the bigger. Max & Diana, Sam & Colleen helped move just the essentials. Goodbye city
