On the raggedy edge… or, rather, I thought I would be by now, trying to make changes for a successful 2023.

It's funny how some things come out of the ether. You don't think about them--at least, not consciously. You don't see them. But then one day you feel a bit lighter and realize something happened to you, like you stumbled on some semblance of enlightenment. I didn't read a book about any of it--yet--and I … Continue reading On the raggedy edge… or, rather, I thought I would be by now, trying to make changes for a successful 2023.

Q#186: If Halloween was the kind of holiday where you gathered for dinner–and kept the spooky theme going–what (actually edible) items could/should be on the menu (other than candy)?

I got to thinking about this when making my ham earlier (T-Day's gonna stretch over the weekend because I just got over a sinus infection and finally got my taste buds back... and I'm experimenting with half a dozen recipes, so not much time for other stuff this week).

#083 Blitz Q: Does anybody make green bean casserole when it’s NOT Thanksgiving or Christmas?

Aside from the turkey, the potatoes, and the cranberry sauce (can shaped or chunky, fielder's choice), a green and brown lumpy mass is usually part of the holiday meal picture. Some concoction called green bean casserole. I've rarely enjoyed a green bean casserole that felt like a true casserole. Oftentimes it looks like green beans … Continue reading #083 Blitz Q: Does anybody make green bean casserole when it’s NOT Thanksgiving or Christmas?
