God Bless The Folks Who Grow It, For Us Mere Mortals To Cook It!
My wife got an "Air Garden" for Christmas from my eldest.. she is currently growing chives, basil, and thyme.. It made me think how hard some folks work, bringing food to market, and all the time and effort in consumes. I am no farmer. I love to cook it when it's ready to be cooked! Meat, fruit, vegetables, spices, etc. are something us foodies must pay homage to- If it wasn't for them, well, anyone seen the movie "Soylent Green"? We give token thanks for our meal, praying without meaning it. Think about what I've written, and if you can't thank God, thank the farmer who raised or grew it..
Today, I made a meatloaf of home ground pork, ground chuck, and ground venison.. heavy on herbs and spices, I am expecting a good meatloaf! The from scratch scalloped potatoes with sour cream and parsley should match. You'd think I was Polish for my love of seasoned, sauteed mushrooms! The German Chocolate cake lets you know I can match food, that has never been next to each other!
Want to see a wonderful cartoon that foodies can smile and laugh at? "Ratatouille" is a cute cartoon with a message- "Anyone can cook"! Anyone can, if they want to...
P.S. If anyone didn't wish Mona a Happy Birthday, please do so now... She is drop dead cool and deserves yours blessings..
