Talking Hello

I've been lurking for some time and decided to register and participate.....I will behave myself....

Started cooking and canning back in the 70's and am not a gourmet chef.....I put food on the table and nothing more. I grew up with JC and JW on PBS......Graham Kerr rings a bell..... I have a JoC 1977 8th printing that I used to go by......nice reference but I'm not going to cook my pork to 180F.

Once the children were grown and gone (almost) I took a break from cooking except for holidays. When it got to the point where I was the only diner, I gave up. I've been thrust back into the role of Patriarch with 3 grandchildren in my household......time to start cooking again!! The youngsters are fascinated by the fact that not everything is "cooked" in a microwave......

Gave most of my non-stick away......do have some cast iron but rely on my SS for every day use. I cook chili in 5 gallon batches..... I do not buy endorsed cookware.....

The 5 kids (and neighbor lady who always showed up at dinner time) ate it all!! I might have to start again and am planning a garden.....we'll see. Once the kids got older I lost interest and stopped gardening. I now have 3 Gdaughters in the house that love veggies....I guess I better get busy!!

Welcome from a fellow Galenian, even if it is a different town in a different state. Must have mined that stuff all over the country, I think there's a Galena, Alaska as well.

Gotta get the lead out!!...

The Galena I'm from is no more than a town square and a post office.... At one time it was well known for brick....but that business is long gone.
