Oh goody, goody. Thanks Daniel!

Silverthorn farm held a "thank you, patrons" dinner last night out on the prairie. The food came from the farm and was prepared by the head chef(s) of several Indianapolis restaurants, all catered. I have a bad cold, so I really couldn't taste it very well. Photos may be posted already, if not soon. (

Randy, my son-in-law, has trouble with wheat and gluten. We emptied our pantry of anything that might aggravate his rheumatoid arthritis, even if it is just a hint that it might be a problem. 

Laura and I are eating the same things as he and we both are losing weight, needed weight loss, by the way. 

We all love bread, all kinds of pasta, and anything made of flour. Larry read that sourdough destroys whatever it is that causes him problems, and we jumped on the chance the invalidated claim was valid. Larry made two loaves of sourdough, and we ate it in two days ... oh-oh here comes the weight back on!  The next day he made another two loaves. 

I have no tests to validate the claim nor do I have any clinical evidence.

I've been warned that flour is bad for me (us). Unfortunately, I love pies, biscuits, pancakes, etc. I'm hoping using flour "in moderation" will get me off the hook. Rationalization is so powerful!

Daniel, your blueberry pie looks wonderful! I am not surprised you find the old pastry blender resulted in a flakier crust. 

I was very small, I had to stand on a chair at the kitchen table at my grandmother's elbow making pie dough in my bowl beside her bowl as she blended the lard, flour, and salt with her fingers. She had a light touch and I mimicked her motion.

Bertold, thank you for the reminder of Dutch Baby Pancakes. I haven't had one in years and my mouth waters as I anticipate making them.

Never in my life have a made a pie crust from scratch.  I've always been a bit hesitant (scared?) of doing so for some reason.  Perhaps this fear comes from years of passive listening to conversations and comments about good and bad crusts, who makes them and who doesn't.  A person either wins or loses in this arena.

Well, I just came across this article and recipe today.  I just may dip my toe into the dough and give it a try.  This article and the reader comments give me encouragement.

Carl - one possibility. Fresh blueberries are fabulous on Dutch baby pancakes.

My sister just gave me about three pounds of fresh blueberries from Michigan.  Hmmm.  Now to decide how to use them.

As they say, when it rains, it pours. In this case, it's raining sweet corn, tomatoes, green beans, and peaches. I seem to be eating them every meal. They "come on" all at once. Yes, I freeze them for the winter, too. It won't be long before sweet potatoes will be dug up, and I'm still eating ones from last year.  

Just commenting, not complaining.
