I like to watch "Pioneer Woman "on the Food Network. Today she is recounting her history by preparing dishes that she loved at periods of her life. Great idea. I will see what I remember. Fried chicken. My Mother was not a great cook, but she did a wonderful fried chicken. I remember helping her do it for my lunch when I was invited to be on a Mardi Gras float with my date. Her secret ingredient--Bisquick. Then ,there is my sisters Chop Suey. Canned Chinese veggies, canned chop suey noodles, over cooked boiled chicken, soy sauce. I'd gag if I ate this now. We thought my sister was so creative with this recipe. Then there was the fondue craze. I had the pot, the skewers. We loved that with beef cubes . Forget the veggies, just pure beef. Then I was on a beef tenderloin kick. It was much cheaper back then. And cherry tantrum. That's the name we gave to a dessert that was made with canned cherry pie filling and cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk ,poured into a prepared graham cracker crumb crust. We served it often. What do I like for this period in my food history..I never turn down a bowl of chicken soup with egg noodles. But you knew that.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
