Enough of my whining.
Does anyone ever eat donut peaches? Had not heard of them until a couple of years ago. They're now grown in my area, and are they yummy!!!!! When I first saw one, my reaction was WTF?! Then I bit into one. Juiciest sweetest peach I had ever eaten.
I'm considering anorexia as an alternative. Have been plagued with a toothache in a front incisor that needs to be pulled. Can't bite through anything, so I have to cut everything up in little chunks, including sandwiches. Or, eat things you don't bite off.
Should be a simple procedure lasting 10 minutes in a dentist's chair. Problem is, I can't have it pulled due to being on blood thinners. If I were to have it pulled, I would bleed out faster than being the main course at a vampire all-you-can-eat buffet.
So, I have to arrange for in-patient surgery in St. Louis, which will take weeks. In the meantime, tiny squares of food. I feel like someone is holding a spoon, opening my mouth and saying, "Here comes the airplane into the hanger."
I don't know who said it, but they were correct. Getting old ain't for sissies.
Too busy - ate a roll with mature cheese on the run.
What--has everybody quit eating? (little activity here)
Eating off a rhubarb/blueberry pie. Good, but I burnt the graham cracker crust in my little convection oven. Vanilla yogurt makes a good topping. In fact, yogurt is used for all my fruit dishes. I alternate between plain, Greek, and the aformentioned vanilla. Yummy--and good for you.
Randall, glad you liked the casserole. I previously used small red potatoes in making P.S., but now I use Yukon Gold. They're firmer and I think give a better texture to the dish.
I have some "new" potatoes coming on, so I may have to turn them into P.S. It takes a lot of work, however, and I'm a lazy chef (I use the term loosely).
Pat, the brocolli casserole turned out wonderful. I used chicken soup. Thanks for the idea. And I'm with Patricia on the carrot infused jello salad. So gross!
You're absolutely correct James. The best potato salad I ever had in my life was in a restaurant in a small German village named Mutlangen. Boiled potatoes sliced thin as American potato chips with vinegar and a few herbs. Having come back to the US, I've had several versions of "German Potato Salad." Not a one has ever come close.
I made some deviled eggs for breakfast--the easy way. Just put all the ingredients in one bowl and cooked them.
I was thinking of throwing in some potatoes and making a potato salad, but I'll try that another day. A good potato salad is a favorite of mine also.
Actually, Pat, potato salad is one of those "wide open" recipes you can experiment with and make just any old way until you find the one you like best. I prefer mine with lots of mustard in it. But my favorite recipe comes from the Cotton Country Collection published by the Junior League of Monroe, La. It contains, in addition to the boiled potatoes, mustard seed, celery seed, vinegar, salt, diced hard boiled eggs, lots of green onions, mayo, and chopped pickles. Taragon vinegar works best, and instead of putting the whole seeds in, I pulverize them in a spice grinder. Potato salad is a favorite thing.
Daniel, you've inspired me to make potato salad this weekend. Pretty simple with eggs, bacon, a little mustard powder, onions, celery and bell pepper.
Like Randall, I' don't recall the Jello songs either, but I certainly do recall Jello, and the horrid Jello salads my step-mother used to make. As good a woman as she was, in the kitchen, she could burn water. Reminded me of the jello salad in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
