Favorite meal…



Leftovers (or as my brother called them, overcooks) are my favorite meals. I think leftovers taste better than when they were first cooked and served.  Nothing better than watching a movie with a plate of good food that didn’t take long to prepare. Besides being quick and easy to prepare the clean up is usually easy, not as many pots and pans and dishes to wash. Leftovers are the best comfort food.

Supper in the park…

Three Line Tales, Week 62

Supper In The Park

One night while out walking with her mother the little girl asked, “Mama that sign in the window says Quality Meats, what does it mean?” Her mother shivered and answered, “It’s where they sell dead animals that have been drained of blood and cut up to cook and eat; it’s false advertising, Darling.” Then she added with a grin, “We know quality meat is of one piece, fresh and filled wth heart pumping blood to drink straight from the neck and there is some over there walking in the park; so let’s go get some supper.”

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 5


1. I used to love to eat those little puffy cheese things, I think they are called Cheeto’s, but now it repulses me.
2. I would never eat...anything I didn’t eat before. I guess I don’t eat whatever now because I think  I still wouldn’t like it, but now I love it…not.
3. I always cry when I see someone crying.  I don’t have to know them or why they  are crying just seeing their tears makes me have to fight my own tears.

4. Seeing and hearing very young children laughing always makes me laugh.

Thursday, PB&J…


As I was eating my lunch of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich
my mind started doing its ditzy dance of silly wonderings.

One of the things I wondered was if anyone was afraid
of eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

So off to Googling I went.
Anything you might ever wonder about can be Googled.

There does not seem to be a phobia of eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
but there is a phobia about peanut butter.

the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth

Who knew!

I suppose if you have dentures
peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth could be a problem.
But to the point of phobia?

Well, I do have an unusual fear. A phobia I guess.  
I will keep it to myself–for now anyway…It could show up in a post one day.
In fact it probably will.

Anyway, back to the peanut butter phobia.
I feel bad for arachibutyrophobes.
They are missing out on a wonderful sandwich and
peanut butter on toast and *gasp* peanut butter cookies.


Today, I think I will Google my fear and see if it has a phobia attached to it.

Friday, celebrating a new recipe…


I am not a great cook but I am a good basic sort of cook.  I do not even consider making something that has ingredients I have never heard of or if you can only get them at a “specialty” store.  So, I don’t make a lot of Martha Stewart meals.  But I do find a lot of easy recipes in the newspaper, yes I still get the newspaper, some magazines, and from blogs.

I am trying to eat healthier and that includes less beef, oh I do love me some hamburger, and more fish or vegetarian meals.  For the most part I have found that vegetarian meals tend to be a bit time-consuming and have some of those never heard of things in them.  I have, however, found a blogger that has recipes of the meatless variety that are quick and have things in them that are familiar to me.

The Simple Veganista is the place.

A  favorite that I found on her blog is, Chickpea of the Sea Sandwich/Salad it’s really good…okay, this is the only recipe from the Veganista I have made so far but I am going to try more…easy to make and inexpensive.  I have made it a couple of times and shared it with a neighbor, who also liked it a lot. And this neighbor is picky!

Thursday, variety is a spice of life…

Example of an American grocery store aisle.

I went to the grocery store today and as I was walking around I was struck by the variety of food (and other stuff but that’s for another blog) that is in the grocery store.  You can find just about anything you want.  I guess if you are a gourmet cook there are things that aren’t found at the local Piggly Wiggly but for those of us who are regular kitchen peeps there is more than enough to fill the buggy.

I like wandering around the store and just looking at the shelves of cans and bags and boxes, and the bins of fruits and vegetables.  Then, of course , there are the dairy and frozen food cases and rows of wine and beer and sodas and water.  Who knew there could so many kinds of water!

Well, this all got me thinking about how blessed we are with variety in life.  Not just food but in all aspects of life.  There is really no reason to become bored all you have to do is turn around and there is something different to see or hear or taste or feel.  No two experiences are exactly the same.

Today, I am thankful for the variety in life.
