My favorite 2 cheeses. Farmer John and Rella. Many dishes go better with lots of Rella cheese.  :)

I tried making my first ever batch of sauerkraut 9 days ago. It got a little "fuzzy" on the surface. Wiped it out and tasted the kraut. So salty! Yuck. Rinsed it out and will try again tonight. Fermented foods are supposed to be very good for the gut. See Joan's discussion above.

Here's a nice meal for those who have limited money. Chop and fry some onions and mix them in with black eyed peas. Season this to taste and stir it around. Add 2 or 3 chopped up hotdogs and simmer a while and then serve.

It's really not bad at all.

Just finished reading another food book, The Blue Zone Solution. It was more than just about food. It tried to answer the question why some societies or small groups of people live so long. Good diets and lifestyle. Not much new, but still interesting. Good recipes.

Yes, having a refrigerator in the detached garage presents problems--cold weather and mice, for two. Added cost to run, also.

It was only in recent years my father resorted to processed foods. Mom was a good cook, and dad tried when she died. He just got lazy and tired of "cooking". 

Joan, I'm impressed that you're canning apple sauce. My Fall apples are getting ready to pick and turn to apple sauce. But I simply freeze them. Whole apples keep well in my fruit cellar. Then, there's pears. Too much!

Randy, amazing your father lived so long on this modern food. I agree with you. With your garden and freezing, it won't take long to fill two freezers. I had two at my Spokane home and Laura has a huge one that is crammed full. I am canning everything this year. Most recently, Laura's apple tree produced the best apple sauce and I am canning them all, with only a few saved for apple pan dowdy. Larry wants to make apple sourdough bread, as well.

Plinius, I agree, "The simplest home made food" adds multiple pleasures to life. I made vegetable soup last night and served it with Larry's outstanding sourdough bread. It hit the spot on a cold autumn evening. 

The simplest home made food

Ready made food, frozen or canned is really unhealthy! The wrong kind of fat, far too much carbo-hydrates, salt and inferior meat, and almost no vegetables. The simplest home made food is a lot better!

Randy, about 20 years ago I purchased an "On-Cor" brand frozen entree of lasagna.  It was the most disgusting and god-awful (that's really bad) meals I've ever had.  Since that time, I have always referred to it as "shit in a box." 

Having an extra freezer is a great addition.  I hope our cold extraordinary cold Midwestern winters are not too hard on this appliance in your garage.

I couldn't bare to toss out all the food my dad had--both canned and frozen. I've sampled some pizza, omelet, and a Salisbury steak TV dinner so far. Awful, simply dreadful. Way too salty. It's little wonder our country is so unhealthy. 

We were able to transport his refrigerator to my place yesterday. However, it is too wide to get into the house, plus it wouldn't fit into the current space as is. So, it's in the garage, but plugged in. I'll use it for extra freezer storage for now.
