What about 'Freedom Fries?' That lovely dish that leaves the charred and burnt taste of failed aggressive warfare in your mouth. 

OK, I can see the rotten tomatoes being thrown in my direction for the sarcastic comment. Seriously, I prefer fries with nothing more than a dash of Lowery's Seasoning salt.

French fries are thinner than Belgian friet.

I tried a white mug for my coffee just now Daniel. Very good!

And tea tastes best out of a clear glass can see the color(s) better.

PS: Fries with 1000 Island dressing (and freshly ground black pepper) have been THE thing around here since the 1950s, at least.

Belgium wants potato fries to be named their national heritage food.

I don't know the difference between french fries and Belgian potato fries.  Somehow, I like the idea.  I like mine with thousand island, or blue cheese dressing, instead of ketchup.

Coffee isbetter when drunk from a white mug.

What's strange is I always thought so.  Not only that, I drink from a wide, shallow white cup.  I feel like I get more of the aroma.

I made a ham loaf for supper yesterday. Used leftover mushroom stuffing for the breading. Had to cut up my ham into small pieces with a knife. I'm wondering what ever happened to my mother's food grinder. I loved watching her work that thing.

Randy, that's interesting about Ball jars, David Letterman and Garfield.

Pat, thanks for the advice.  I forgot that bugs or bug eggs can be in the dry food.  I also didn't think of Oxygen absorbers.  I have some of those, vacuum packed, so I'll use those.  I don't have enough freezer space for all my dry foods, but one of these days, (I keep saying for years), I'll look at my big chest freezer, to see if I can repair it.

Well pat, I do sense a little bitterness, but I don't blame you in the least!

I love your last sentence, Joan!

Since I missed out on some traditional Thanksgiving foods (eating at Dad's retirement home), I decided to complete the meal, albeit without my usual turkey leg. So yesterday I made mushroom based stuffing (yum), sweet potatoes, a succatash, Br. sprouts, and a scone (thanks to Deidre) with dried cranberries inside and cranberry sauce on top. Oh yes, the meat was ham.  Now I'm happy.

I didn't do this last year because I was playing with my cancer friend. But this coming spring, as I have been doing for decades, i start a lot of plants and label them. After hardening them off, and taking what I want, I put trays of them out in the front yard or in front of the garage. I send emails to neighbors and friends that they are free to take whatever they want. I always start too many. 

During harvest, I take wheelbarrows of vegetables and fruits to the front and notify by email to pick up whatever they want. If there are any leftovers, I take them to the East Central Community Center for distribution. I hate waste. 

Of course, there is always my compost pile that appreciates new additions, as do the worms in the worm-farm. 

I meet some of the greatest people doing this. I didn't understand living abundantly until I grew zucchini.
