Evolution of chickens, sort of.  Tyranochicken Rex?  Chickzilla?

 

Pic is from the link.  Apparently, it's all good breeding.

Comment by Deidre yesterday

@ Joan...I grow my own baby pumpkins, actually in pots. If you buy them from the store, the smaller pumpkins are best. Or miniature ones. I cut them in halves, and then quarters...spray with a little margarine, and salt them, and then put face down in a baking dish...cover with tin foil. You want the pumpkin to be nice and soft so you can mash it yourself or put it into a blender after baked. About 90 minutes on 375. I use Splenda, so you can really taste the pumpkin and not just a bunch of sugar. Delish! :)

I don't like electric but I'm stuck with it because this place is all electric. Gas in this area is propane. It is very high and at least this way I don't have to sock hundreds of dollars into an outside gas tank every winter.

Mike the parts issue would be a deciding factor in deciding whether to buy one - if it ever came available. My current stove is a Maytag. It has good points and bad points. Mostly I like it much better than my old electric stove.

I may find room for sweet potatoes in my garden next season.  Will they grow in a container like regular potatoes, where you keep adding material that the potatoes grow in?

Comment by Joan Denoo on Tuesday

Deidre, please do share our recipe for roasting pumpkins. Do the same principles work for winter squash? My neighbor gave me a very large bushel basket of them, all different kinds. 

Comment by Michael Penn on Tuesday

You can call me Mike or Michael. My first name is Dennis but I never used it. (Most likely form Dennis the Menace.) My mother always called me Michael.

I envy anyone who has a Chambers stove but there are no parts for them today, so no repair. The company name was used again a few years ago, but they had no parts for the classic stoves like in your picture.

Comment by Sentient Biped on Tuesday

Michael (is that what you prefer to be called?  Just checking) - I wanted to bring my parents' Chambers stove back to my house when they died, but (a) I was not there for the auction and (b) it would have cost a fortune to ship from rural Illinois to Washington state.  You are right - they weigh a ton.  My parents' house had a basement.  My dad had to install a bean under the stove because it was making the floor sag.  He used a car jack to raise the joists back into position.

 

Spud, for nostalgia, I've been buying kitchen tools from estate and yard sales.  My bowls, cutting boards, and measuring cups, and some baking dishes, are all from some old family or other, much used and still solid.  For some reason, I like using them much more than new ones.

 

Home today to do work via internet.  It's officially my "day off" but I always work.  Since I'm salaried, not hourly, I can take breaks as long as I get the work done - sort of, it is endless - so comment on here.  Making bread  today, a good thing to do in fall and winter.  And I think I'll roast a butternut squash from the garden for a pie.

 

Spud, sweet potatoes make a great pie too!

 

Felaine, I hope there are ways to enjoy being older.  Enjoy what you can.
