Thanksgiving without Martha Stewart!

Saturday, November 15, 2014

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


emoticon for stopping by to read the following "revisit blog" --- meaning that I have posted it before --- on Friday, November 22, 2013 to be exact. I hope that reading it (or rereading it, as the case may be) leaves you happily uplifted! And most importantly may your Thanksgiving 2014 be your most enjoyable one to date! God bless!


emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


A friend forwarded the following to me & reading it gave me such a chuckle! I just had to share it with y'all in the hopes that it would do the same for each of you.


May the good Lord bless your Thanksgiving Day from the time you open your eyes until you drift off into Dreamland that night!

Martha Stewart Ain't Gonna Be Here!


For those of you who are coming to our place for Thanksgiving dinner, Martha Stewart ain't gonna be here! I'm telling you in advance, so don't act surprised. Since Ms. Stewart won't be coming, I've made a few small changes:


Our sidewalk will not be lined with homemade, paper bag luminaries. After a trial run, it was decided that no matter how cleverly done, rows of flaming lunch sacks do not have the desired welcoming effect.


Once inside, our guests will note that the entry hall is not decorated with the swags of Indian corn and fall foliage I had planned to make. Instead, I've gotten the kids involved in the decorating by having them track in colorful autumn leaves from the front yard. The mud was their idea. The dining table will not be covered with expensive linens, fancy china, or crystal goblets. If possible, we will use dishes that match and everyone will get a fork.


Since this IS Thanksgiving, we will refrain from using the plastic Peter Rabbit plate and the Santa napkins from last Christmas.


Our centerpiece will not be the tower of fresh fruit and flowers that I promised. Instead we will be displaying a hedgehog-like decoration hand-crafted from the finest construction paper. The artist assures me it is a turkey. We will be dining fashionably late. The children will entertain you while you wait. I'm sure they will be happy to share every choice comment I have made regarding Thanksgiving, pilgrims and the turkey hot line. Please remember that most of these comments were made at 5:00 a.m. upon discovering that the turkey was still hard enough to cut diamonds.


As accompaniment to the children's recital, I will play a recording of tribal drumming. If the children should mention that I don't own a recording of tribal drumming, or that tribal drumming sounds suspiciously like a frozen Turkey in a clothes dryer, ignore them. They are lying. We toyed with the idea of ringing a dainty silver bell to announce the start of our feast. In the end, we chose to keep our traditional method. We've also decided against a formal seating arrangement. When the smoke alarm sounds, please gather around the table and sit where you like. In the spirit of harmony, we will ask the children to sit at a separate table. In a separate room. Next door.


Now, I know you have all seen pictures of one person carving a turkey in front of a crowd of appreciative onlookers. This will not be happening at our dinner. For safety reasons, the turkey will be carved in a private ceremony. I stress "private" meaning: Do not, under any circumstances enter the kitchen to laugh at me. Do not send small, unsuspecting children to check on my progress. I have an electric knife. The turkey is unarmed. It stands to reason that I will eventually win. When I do, we will eat.


I would like to take this opportunity to remind my young diners that "passing the rolls" is not a football play. Nor is it a request to bean your sister in the head with warm tasty bread. Oh, and one reminder for the adults: For the duration of the meal, and especially while in the presence of young diners, we will refer to the giblet gravy by its lesser-known name: Cheese Sauce. If a young diner questions you regarding the origins or type of Cheese Sauce, plead ignorance. Cheese Sauce stains.


Before I forget, there is one last change. Instead of offering a choice between 12 different scrumptious desserts, we will be serving the traditional pumpkin pie, garnished with whipped cream and small fingerprints. You will still have a choice; take it or leave it.


Martha Stewart will not be dining with us this year. She probably won't come next year either. I am thankful.

“This nation shall remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave!” Elmer Davis

Actually a more right on the target statement of fact would be:

"This nation shall remain the land of the free only so long as its people honor & serve the Lord God Almighty --- the Creator God!"

Having been born into a military family, I have a great appreciate of those who serve this country in the branches of our military --- those who have given their lives in the service of this country: as well as those on active duty & those who have retired --- along with their families who, in a lot of cases, are giving or have sacrificed much in their lives as military dependents.

I always thank those who I think are vets and what brings tears to my eyes is to see homeless vets.

Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables --- I approve this idea!

Sunday, July 27, 2014

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


In the United States of America -- three hundred million tons of fresh produce is thrown away per year! emoticon

Quite insane!

Worse, yet, when one stops to think about the number of children in the USA & the world over, who daily go hungry &/or die each minute from starvation. emoticon

From Wikipedia on malnutrition --- "There were 925 million undernourished people in the world in 2010, an increase of 80 million since 1990. Another billion people are estimated to have a lack of vitamins and minerals." And just think --- in the USA alone --- three hundred million tons of fresh produce is thrown away per year! Does this knowledge not grieve your heart? It does mine --- right past words to describe how much! emoticon

This gal abhors waste of any type --- especially of fresh produce. This idea pleases me beyond words & I sincerely hope that you will find it to your liking, too.

emoticon for checking this inglorious fruits & veggies idea out. Maybe, if we all suggest this to our supermarket chains, they will eventually get the idea that consumers will go for the idea of less expensive, while just as tasty veggies & fruits --- thus, resulting in less waste of God's bounty. emoticon

    Meal planning before going to the grocery store, helps prevent this.

Also, taking one planned day out as "produce prep day", and, if needed, a second planned day for batchcooking, will ensure everything is cooked and eaten.

Raw veggies that need to be peeled / chopped / sliced / diced may molder in the drawer. But wash and cut them up and put them in a divided Tupperware tray in the fridge - they will be eaten and/or they will be ready for making salads and recipes with.

Batchcooking ensures every meal is as fast to reheat or finish cooking as takeout, only much healthier and much more frugal than takeout. Freezer meals, cooked and uncooked, should be part of the batchcooking rotation.

Don't forget the crockpot. Put the old-but-not-yet-dead veggies in there, with leftovers like meat, beans, broth, and you won't believe the heavenly aroma that greets you a few hours later when you walk in the door. Automatic homemade soup / stew.

    Our grocery stores also sell the "disfigured", blemished or otherwise slightly "unsightly" produce @ rock bottom and I know they also donate produce which is edible to food pantries to be used that day.

Personally, I will buy the produce and use it in my soups and stews too. At worst it can be used to make vegetable stocks.

Great idea to stop food waste!

    Our supermarkets here (we have 3 ) all package up veggies and fruits that are either disfigured or small blemishes and sell them really cheap. These are great for chopping up into the freezer for readiness to go into soups stews and casseroles.

They also donate their day old breads and other bakery goods to the food bank here.

Stuff that is way past being sellable but is useable is free for the taking for the farmers that have livestock that will eat these things, so everything gets used no matter what.

This started long before my time on this old earth, in this town, probably because of the isolation here.


At one time there was only one ship that would come in and dock at the paper mill for a couple hours once a week, to take on passengers bound for Vancouver, and to drop off ordered supplies.
