  1. Actually that was my sick mind attempt at humor playing off Ann's comment with an Elvis song. I blame it on the amount of country music I listen to and Ken Burn's new documentary...
  2. Don't be cruel, @liuzhou!!! I have to ask my friend, Sha (i.e. American named, Sandy) if there is someplace around here where I can get some.
  3. yupper...just what he said. @chromedome beat me to it

    Dinner 2019

    Yesterday John's new go-to when getting ready to travel... fish sandwich. Baked breaded fish(thinly sliced cod or flounder), tartar sauce and Udi's bread. For me … lettuce salad topped with a tomato and cucumber salad and a 3 bean salad and a bison cheeseburger(pimento cheese) for National Cheeseburger day. Today he is off hiking and sent him with a mixed bag of gf pasta with pesto, hard boiled eggs, potato salad and three more fish sandwiches. Stopped at a local butcher's and got two sweet Italian sausages I'm roasting now with some onions and peppers. Also picked up a crusty Italian roll. Same place got some of their pulled pork and pulled chicken and made some barbeque sauce for sandwiches Saturday night before he and a friend head t a concert n the city.
  5. ditto, except minus the broadwing hawks and bald eagles...9 years later.
  6. Years ago when we foraged wild grapes we made jelly we also used quite a bit of sugar per juice, put into small ball jars and, before sealing them, topped the set jelly with a film of paraffin.

    Breakfast 2019

    While making chicken with carrots and tarragon for dinner the other night I had two chicken breasts left over. I roasted them and made a chicken salad with chopped green onion, dried cranberries, chopped pecans and apple. Perfect for breakfast.

    Dinner 2019

    It was a bit cool so a comfort meal: mashed potatoes, wax beans and meatloaf. Tuesday was supposed to be pasta with chicken piccata. OOPS, just as the chicken was finishing got a call from John. Could I come pick him up in Hamburg? He had just totaled his car.

    leftover diner corned beef hash, two hard scrambled eggs and a small spicy virgin mary
  11. John will order 2 filet o' fish without cheese if I haven't given him enough of his edible food. I do keep some fish products in the freezer so he can make them for himself if I am away.
  12. great pictures of your food and drink can't exactly tell the size but definitely an accipiter - sharpshinned or coopers hawk....looking for his meal...………………….
  13. NOT a farmer's market but a farm stand (Story's Farm in Catskill, NY). They do also feature products from other local producers. 3 ears of their corn. For whatever reason(I suspect cool temperatures and late rain) the corn her in NW NJ has no taste this year. This stuff tasted like corn!! Friends told me the tomatoes up in the valley were ok - so brought them some from here. Local shallots, b potatoes, cranberry beans, wax beans and two different melons I will nurture along to maturity.
  14. @chefmd Thank you so much. A friend of mine was recently flying home and a passenger had a seizure. Luckily he told me there was a physician on the plane so they were able to stabilize the patient then were able to finish on to their destination while the patient was under medical supervision. Got the patient off with no problems....
  15. so Friday I officially got my Medicare Part A card. A dear friend asked if I would be interested in visiting for the weekend and I said YES!!! Friday was the traditional dinner I have come to love - homemade thin crust pizza and salad. Oops, no lettuce! I brought some heirloom tomatoes up from here in NJ. A Purple Cherokee and Mortgage lifter went into a tomato salad with some shaved garlic, olives, red onion and roasted red peppers with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Since she cooks during the week while her husband works on the weekend she gets a break - luckily her husband in a former life was a cook/pastry and bread guy, all-around dogs body. He made us BLTs for lunch on Saturday, mid afternoon mocha espressos (hot for him and me; iced for her) then dinner was my request - grilled lamb chops and vegetables. I was allowed to sous for him (Oui, chef) and it was one of the best meals I have had in ages. Thank you Ed and Joyce for making me feel like a queen and helping to feel part of.... a family and something bigger than myself.

I have some basil and parsley form the kitchen garden to add at the last minute. Gluten free pasta for John, bucatini for me. too bad John can't seem to find his way home in timely fashion...OOOPS
  20. I adore your reports @liamsaunt. That was the one place my mom wanted to go to but she didn't make it. Took my mother-in-law #1 but she wasn't impressed. Party on with the niece, girl!!!!
