Edgar Allan Poe's 210th B-Day ~ 1-19-19 ~ Who Will You Toast?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poe_Toaster

Today is Edgar Allan Poe's birthday, and I wish we lived in the Baltimore area, so I could continue the tradition of "Toasting Poe" with Congac and leaving three Roses on with grave.

Coincidentally, today is National Garlic Day... That MIGHT keep The Raven away

I'll be making Lasgna and Garlic Bread for supper later today,
how about you?

[file photos above-but my own food ]

I'm NOT sharing any Lasgna this time, the smaller trays will go into the deep freeze for later-we may be having House-Guests

Looks yummy Kgirl !


It's a bright warm cloudless day after all that rain, and 75 degrees predicted for later!!! Woo Hoo...it's time to hit the barby. I think I'll do wings and a grill basket of marinated veggies today. Can't wait to get out there with my good music, good wine and good food. I be happy now.

Just picked up a cask of amontillado. Not sure what to have with it. I wonder if it makes a good braising liquid.

It's still cold/cool here in the middle of the "high" desert, we're suppose to get to 60 today... I may just change my mind, as is a woman's prerogative, and we just might join you and SC outside with a NY Strip steak, veggies and a bottle of wine... I haven't had any wine all week

Casey, I had to look that one up
Ooh, it's Sherry! My Mother LOVES Sherry, may she join you?
Me, I'm a dry White Wine-kinda-gal

Look it up again and put Edgar Allen Poe in the search.

Any guests behind your walls? I remember that from when I was a kid. I bought the big soft cover book with several of his stories in it. Pit and pendulum got to me.

Supposed to get snow.

I feel a bit like a cold coming on. I have chicken and veggies on for soup stock.

I bought a bottle of "EAP" Amontillado after Traveler sang it's praises a while back. I like it a lot and it's now my sherry of choice for cooking. Good stuff.

One high school I went to had half semester classes on a single author - I took Poe. Love his stories, although it's been a while since I read them.
