“Isn’t it funny how nothing changes day by day, but when you look back, everything is different…” C.S. Lewis, “Prince Caspian” (1951)

A quote to ponder.

Decided to dry these Long Beans for next year and think they look lovely as hanging art.

Nice Surprise…

Long Beans…

The one on the left measures about twenty-seven inches! A neighbor gave them to me and I’m having them tonight with porkchops. Southern style will be my method of cooking aka boiling water with bacon grease, salt and pepper. This will be my first taste. There are other ways to prepare, but my first will be with a familiar method! Happy summer!

Fresh mint…

From my yard. Even in the mist of panic and chaos God provides a calming, soothing, and refreshing herb.

Seems like yesterday…

I started this blog and actually it’s been ten years. I would never have noticed except WordPress notified me. Thank everyone for still taking time to stop by and read. It is appreciated.

Chicken and dumplings…

January 28, 2020

This is a delicious lunch I’m having today. The recipe is one from Fannie Farmers cookbook that has been with me over thirty years. It is the one thing that I don’t make Southern as far as the dumplings. Mama, Nanny , and my aunts all rolled out and cut their dumplings. In fact everyone I’ve ever known do the same except me. I like the dropped spoonfuls of the recipe and so does my family and it’s all they’ve ever had from me. The flat ones seem slick and slimey to me, although I did like them as a child and surely wouldn’t refuse to partake if offered! The secret I’ve found is not to work the dough too much. I like them light and airy in their broth with the chicken. Yes, comfort is a wonderful thing and sometimes good food ranks highly in that realm. Thank you Fannie.
