  1. No but from fresh water ponds and storing it. On little old Shelter Island we had 3 ice houses in the late 1800s.

    Dinner 2020

    Exactly one of the things I have been craving...along with some cooked to death green beans. Do you do care packages?
  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SHELBY! Other than a good apple pie I adore Boston Cream Pie! Maybe next year we can share! Here is to a happy and HEALTHY next revolution around the sun and happy times with Ronnie, puppies and kitties.
  4. Homemade hot and sour soup - heavy on the sour.

    Lunch 2020

    Made a Guinness stew for John to take up to Poughkeepsie. Pulled out potatoes, carrots, onions and parsnips and made a mushroom gravy for myself. Meatballs are in production for baking for later; shrimp for roasting are thawing. Made a pile of John's pasta so he can heat up whatever he wants when he gets home later. Meat ball sub or lunch later... Also had made tuna salad for a sandwich as well as mixing with some macaroni salad.
  6. I would be so happy if I never had to cook or eat. This is not a good place for me to be in at any time. Lately I cook for John .... shrimp and pasta, pasta and shrimp, what ? no shrimp? I don't want pork or bison or chicken and NO SANDWICHES!!!! I am living on Ensure .... The thought of eating anything makes me feel ill. I have reached out to my network to try to figure this out.....

    Dinner 2020

    just cooking .... not sure if for dinner, lunch, a sandwich ........ whatever. bison meatballs baked in red sauce. I would really rather sip the sauce like a soup but tried a meatball and it was very light.
  8. Using up some roasted chicken breast .... chicken stock, bay leaf, carrot coins, minced onion and smashed garlic. Leftover chicken and ramen noodles. For John if/when he gets home. Hangover soup.

    Lunch 2020

    Yesterday : slices of beefsteak tomato with blue cheese and Catalina dressing(ok...channeling my childhood) and an ear of local bi-color corn (meh) Today: two slices of leftover pizza and a salad
  10. anyone have any yellow squash and zucchini you can drop off on the porch?
  11. As the shepherd said to the sheep....."Let's get the flock out of here". Sorry.....my grandfather's favorite line.
  12. Local cantaloupe with some blackberries drizzled with some key lime yoghurt. This was one of a local farms last of the season sweet petite fruits. I let it sit out for a few days and the scent was intoxicating. Finally cut it up for breakfast the last two days. Getting chillier now - guess it's time for the oatmeal to come out.
  13. I'm going through my own cookbooks and many of them my in-laws give me for birthdays and Christmas that I really wouldn't buy for myself. Some of the ones in this batch also came from a woman who was cleaning our her brother's estate and wanted me to have them because she knew I was a cook. Others I do get as review books. If they are not marked in a particular was we librarians use I will offer them. After about 6 weeks I will give ones not requested to my local library.
