You know, I’m starting to wonder what’s more dangerous for me; the coved-19 virus, or all the cooking and eating I’m doing during this ‘shelter-in-place’ order?

I’m reverting to the Southern Style cooking I grew up with!

What southern food are you cooking Kate?  I love southern food.

This morning was Mashed Potato Pancakes, fruit and bacon.

This week has been skillet fried ham & chicken fried steak.

Of course to do the Mashed Potato Pancakes there was a big pot of mashed potatoes on Tuesday.

There’s been biscuits & sausage gravy for breakfast a couple of times.  (Made a bunch on Monday, and reheated it on Thursday.)

I guess to balance it out a bit, every Friday we’ve been having some type of fish.

(I need to find some canned salmon and make some Salmon Patties or I think some call them Salmon Croquets.)

Finally, I have the stuff to do homemade jambalaya on rice.  That’s looking like one next weeks endeavors.

Last weekend was cold, so I made a pot of chili.  That’s not necessarily southern, but it is almost gone.

Tomorrow, I’ll do something with a pork roast.

The refrigerator is normally only this full of stuff after we’ve been invaded by our 3 daughters and their families for a weekend, holiday, or something.

That all sounds great.  I would just add some fried chicken, but that is so much work.

I was thinking about that last night.

My problem with chicken, and other fowl, is that it takes so much work to get the meat off the bones.

I have some half breasts that are already off the bone.  I think I will do that sometime in the next week or so, and see how it works out.

(I think the reason chicken is healthier is because of all the work involved in eating it!  ;-)

I just think fried chicken takes too much work.  Yesterday my sister and hre boy came over with take out fried chicken that was delicious.  As far as getting it off the bone, I don't use a knife and fork and I don't leave much!

You have set me a banquet of love, in the face of hatred.

We lost a family member, a cousin, to COVID-19 last Thursday.  The funeral was this morning and the Parish graciously live streamed it for us that were barred from attending because of lock downs.

I was out to them.

I was thinking about that scripture, about how many of us have to live this on a daily basis.  Many of us have to deal with transphobia, homophobia, many times from our own families.

Tom struggled to understand what was inside me; what would drive me to the decisions I have made for myself, but he never rejected me.  He always treated me with respect.

Rest in the peace of God!

Well Madeleine, I did the fried chicken this evening.  I started about noon and marinated it in buttermilk and an egg.  Then I mixed up crushed mustard seed, tarragon, garlic, oregano, ginger, thyme, salt & pepper and flour.  I coated the marinated chicken my flour & spice mixture. I put one cup of Mediterranean blend oil in the skillet and took it outside to the bar-b-que grill.

About forty minutes of frying later I had fried chicken!

So now I have fried chicken leftovers to go with my potato leftovers, and roast leftovers.

(Not to worried about starving during the lock down right now.)

WOW.  That sounds like some amazing fried chicken.  It's a lot more sophisticated than what I do.  I wish I was there to try some!

Well I finally broke down and did it.  As expected the results were depressing.





I stepped on the scale this morning.

24 years ago today, I married my best friend, and my love.

Roughly 18 months ago I turned her world upside down.

Today she gave me this:

Very nice.   :)  :)

Chrissy
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.
