I cooked Lacinato Kale from the greenhouse tonight. We all like it because it has a lot of flavor and is not overpowering. I tried to get a photo to you and this is the only way I could find to accomplish that task. I hope it works.
With you there, Randy. Mince pie is waaaaaaay too sweet for me.
I hate raisins too.
Oh yuck--mince pie! I always hated it. Both grandmothers would bake one. As a coincidence, yesterday for the first time ever, I had some raisins and dried cranberries as a snack. Just a hint of sweetness. Pretty good.
I've decided not to have fowl of any kind for Thanksgiving. Instead, I'm having a freezer ham. Not traditional, but with sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, etc., it'll be marvelous, simply marvelous!
I just vaugly remember mince pie. I think I liked it.
I'm doing nothing special for Thanksgiving day. I'm going shopping before then and will probably get another pumpkin pie and some more of what I'm eating right now: pumpkin pie ice cream. Yum!
Other than raisin cookies, I'm not a fan of any dried fruit. I'll eat a dried bannana chip once in a while, but only once in a while.
Talk of raisins reminds me of a scene in the 1993 movie "Benny & June". Sam is played by Johnny Depp.
Sam: You don't like raisins?
Joon: Not really.
Joon: They used to be fat and juicy and now they're twisted. They had their lives stolen. Well, they taste sweet, but really they're just humiliated grapes. I can't say I am a big supporter of the raisin council.
Carl, I didn't like raisins by themselves, even when I was young, but Mom made fat cookies that had a raisin puree in the center. Don't know what else she added, but I loved those. It's been many years since I've had chocolate covered raisins, but I think I like them also.
Hmmm. Perhaps buying/cooking a Cornish game hen isn't such a good idea after all! Since I can't find one, I reckon it doesn't matter. I'm sure a small fryer will do just as well. I'm eating alone.
I will prepare all the standard Thanksgiving foods--need I list them? Looking forward to it!
The last Cornish hen I bought was tough & stringy.....haven't purchased any since.
As far as I can find most pawpaws are import, and here grown in greenhouses.
