Late Turkey

I had the turkey discussion before Thanksgiving, I think, so rather than re-hash it, I thought I would show my wife's work on the biggest turkey she has microwaved to date, 17 lbs.

Teens at night means fairly high altitude, perhaps 4000 feet? We live at 500 feet in west-central AZ, 60ish lately days, 50s nights. Teens, never. Are you also a dweller of the Mohave Desert?

Man & Wife

Ha! My wife & I get along (more, or less) because she is pragmatic, but dedicated, difficult but easy, non-demanding but insistent,........certain things intrinsically wrong, to me, I let slide.

Thanksgiving Day Challenge

My wife woke me this morning bemoaning her cold coffee! She stores it overnight in the fridge, tosses a cup in the big Sharp microwave first thing next morning, no time wasted brewing.

No heat. I...

"Oleomargarine" came out when I was very small. Touted as more healthful, much cheaper, of course, than butter. Back then, LARD was a staple, used by all Slavic cook/mothers in the Chicago area. I...

I Still Have It!

This is my Mother's original meat grinder, which I recall being used in her kitchen from as far back as I knew what it was; she likely got it in the 1930s or maybe early 1940s.

Nutrition Labeling Truth?

Awhile back, I found a tub of this stuff tucked back in our fridge; my wife did not recall when or why she bought it, and had not used it. The label was enticing, less than half the calories of...

My recipe is really more of a method to show how eggs may be micro-cooked. We bought a little device some time ago which holds up to 4 eggs, still within the shells(!), which soft or hard-boils them...

No chance! However, as I understand the Ogalala, from long ago, it serves a huge area east of the Rockies, I suppose east of the Divide. Depletion of it is no doubt a problem.

WOW!

That might put them in the realm of commercial usage. I do not think any of our usual retailers (Wally-Market.....?) handles the brand. Our old G.E., a big one from 1978, continued working faithfully...
