SPEAKING OF SPELL CHECKS: Ann Adams at rocrebelgranny.blogspot.com wants you to know that the spell-check at www.blogger.com does not recognize the word "blog."
I'm including a link to his column today in the title. Much of the column is devoted to blogging peculiarities and most of it is funny.
He and I went back and forth in email about 3 times trying to get spell-check to work at all; let alone recognize or not recognize "blog". He figured it out before I did and verified it.
Zay and I seem to share both a sense of the ridiculous and an occasional dismay at the direction the world seems to be taking. Sometimes I get more out of one sentence than an entire column by one of the "oh so serious" pundits. He makes me laugh and I need to do a little more of that.
Nothing has changed since yesterday. Rochelle, Rebecca, and I went to church this morning and then to Wendy's for their french fry allotment (1/2 of it for the month). Brought Elcie home a kid's meal with a decent toy for a change. Wendy's now offers a choice of french fries, yogurt, or mandarin oranges. I'm delighted to see it but a french fry once in a while is uplifting. If they run through their ration, we'll switch over to fruit or yogurt. Doubtful, we don't go out that much.
I have laundry drying and then I'll head over to the hospital. Elcie was asleep when I left this morning. I'm not sure when she got up but she's in a much better frame of mind. Rebecca slept for at least 10 hours without stirring. I have hopes they both got some of it out of their system; however, the day isn't over yet.
Still cold here and the skies are dark but no rain so far today. I don't think it froze last night but it was close. My windshield was clear this morning.
L. tells me that Mo-Wo left a creamed cabbage recipe around someplace. I'll try to find it. Dave aka Turtle Guy thinks we should have a blog devoted to recipes and came up with a few creative names. Told him I thought there were probably a zillion or so already out there. He suggests "pot roast post" among others.
(Yes, I know I said Gary earlier but it wasn't, it was Dave. At least I got the country right).
Found it in L's comment box in response to the cabbage parmagiana post.
Aren't you all fancy?
My fave. Creamed cabbage. Sooooo good with mashed potatoes and either meat loaf or pork chops. Saute julienne of cabbage in oil for a few moments then add 2-3 tablespoons water to steam it for 7 min or so. Then uncover, pour on the cream, salt, pepper and dynamite with a bit of good mustard seed. Cook until softish..
You can saute it a bit hard if you really enjoy carmelized flavours, really just a matter of the time you have.
She just left me a comment about recipes and the information highway. I'll find out more about it and let you know.
Rebecca is building a clubhouse with her next door friends. Came in for snacks (essential) and left again.
Maybe more later when I get back. I haven't fallen on my face yet today so things may be looking up as far as morale around here.
