Ingredients came in this sack or poke as we say in the South. I am using it for my garbage can. If you look to the right you can see my helpers head. I gave him a break. I let him watch NYPD as I cooked. Truth be known he is napping like he is now!!!
This pan looks horrible. Yes it is clean, yes it is old. It is older than me!!! It was my Granny’s biscuit pan. I am sixty three and I remember seeing her use the pan when I was a small child. It is not dirty it is just worn. I could not part with it. Well make an offer!
I am sucking on photo’s today.
Quinoa on the stove. It matches our granite. Our stove is four years old and so clean. I love a clean stove. Sometimes I turn all the eyes on when I am cooking for just a minute and I rotate which eye I use when I only have one pot. In Feng Shui that signifies prosperity burning all the gas eyes for a minute. I want to do all I can to stay in line with my Feng Shui. On some areas I slipped some but I am trying to get back on track.
Lord please do not let me find a worm. I remember sitting on my Granny’s front porch shucking corn scared to no end there was going to be a worm when I pulled back the silk. There was not one this time thank goodness.
SunBasket even gave instructions on how to cut corn off the cob. I was thinking about saving the cob for a pipe and then I remember after my 30 plus years of genealogy research one of my grandmothers lived to be over 100. She would have lived a lot longer but she bent over to light her corn cob pipe and fell in the fire to her death!! I kid you not. She was on the Fitzpatrick side if I am not mistaken. I think her name was Sarah Perry. I am just calling that from memory but I have her story. Her husband was Abner Perry.
I love our clean pretty kitchen. By accident I found out how to keep your stainless steel looking good. I do not have the kind that does not show fingerprints. I have the kind of stainless steel that shows everything. I was wiping off the counters and faucets with my Clorox wipes and I saw something on the refrigerator. I swiped over it and it looked so good I cleaned everything with the wipes. The dishwasher looks wonderful. No finger prints no water stains.. CLOROX WIPES my new stainless cleaner. It is amazing how by accident you find something that works. I have been up early in the morning can not sleep cleaning it with mineral oil. Now the wipes are my best friend.
I have never been what you call anything but a cornbread, greens, potato, beans type of cook. I do however love gadgets. I would see something and buy it and say “I’ll need it one day.” Well you know this day has finally come. I am using tools I have had for years. I am glad I got it so I’ll have it when I need it!
It all looks so pretty and smells go good.
Precious plate. We had enough to have again tomorrow night and I am looking forward to Thursday night for the second selection we received! Stay tuned!
