  1. Great excuse to make 40 clove garlic chicken (several times).
  2. Oh yes, Helms Bakery trucks. You had a placard with a big letter H on it that put you in the window to let the driver know you wanted him to stop. Had the best gooseberry pie ever made on earth. Went on a field trip to the bakery in grade school and got "drunk"on the smell of baking bread. Never been the same since! And, back to the wheel. In my memory it included more than just milk products. Wasn't there orange juice and eggs on it as well? Not sure about the eggs though.
  3. Yes we too had one of those wheels. It was from Edgemar Dairy based in Santa Monica, CA. It had a different color for every product. They also sold compost by the load at the dairy itself. We rented a trailer and picked up a load more than once. The mushroom farm in Oxnard used the stuff by the ton too.

    Dinner 2020

    I almost think I could eat dirt out of those beautiful dishes and serving pieces. 'Even my half-assed cooking would shine and that's saying a lot. I always try to "read" them like hieroglyphics. The bowl in the last picture say "Eat this, it will blow your mind". Am I close?

    Breakfast 2020!

    And green bell peppers too. I can almost feel a certain someone shuddering from here! Wow, lots of like-minded people here!
  7. We have access to almost unlimited corncobs but just the thought of using those makes me squirm. I'm thinking that dried corn husks like are used to wrap tamales would be better and easier to store.
  8. One of my kids gifted me with a one year Bacon of the Month membership from Zingerman's a couple of years ago for my birthday. That was some expensive pig meat but fun to explore.

    That lovely serving board would make a blob of canned dog food look tasty. Isn't their work just stunning? Ann and Mo are true artists.
  10. Hi Steve, hey aren't you Diana's kid? Oh and Welcome this is a fantastic place.

    Easter baking

    Why do I associate hot cross buns with Easter? Eons ago I used to make mini cinnamon rolls and arrange them to look like a lamb. When they rose and baked, they looked a little like a wooley critter. Or at least the kids thought so! You could make oval sugar cookies and decorate them like Easter Eggs.
  12. But what did you think "lived" in all those millions of red, heart-shaped boxes?
  13. Many of the nicer stores in Mexico that cater to tourists greet them at the door with an open beer. Nice little touch I think!
  14. Boy this shopping thing works both ways. When we were building this house. hubby would send me to the hardware store for various odds and ends. More than once, hell, lots of times I came home with the wrong thing. Nails a wee bit short. screws with a slotted head, too wide a paint brush, you name it. We finally worked out a solution. Give me an example of the nail, screw nut or bolt to show the clerk. If it were something really super complicated, he called ahead and explained it to the staff and they would have it ready for me to pick up. By the time the house was finished, I had earned a degree in "Hardware Store Shopping" and had my own nail apron so to speak. I can butter bricks with the best of 'em! I think I knew I had mastered it when he sent me to the local Redi-Mix place to pick up screeds and floats and I knew exactly what he meant.
