OMELETTE

“Many people die at 25 and don’t get buried until they’re 70.” The other day I made some eggs in the microwave using a round dish.  They cooked up nicely and took the form of the dish.  So I asked myself, “Self, what if I put the eggs in a rectangular dish and used that…

CRISPY CHICKEN WINGS

“Tastes like chicken.” I recently purchased a 10 pound case of chicken wings from a cooler sale.  All of the meats sold there were in cases and frozen.  Really frozen.  Little did I know, until I got home and opened the case, that the wings were packaged in 5 pound portions.  If I wanted to…

MY FAVORITE PLANT

“My fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them.” I don’t want the rest of the plants in my house to hear this, but I do have a favorite plant.  I got it for free.  Someone once saw it in my house and told me the name of it, but I forgot.…

BREAKFAST

If I make you breakfast in bed a simple “thanks” is all I need.  Not all this “How did you get into my house” business. Someone once asked me, “What do you have for breakfast?”.  I think it was in 6th grade and he added, “Stupid pills”.  The humor of twelve-year-old boys is my favorite.…

SWEET POTATO RE-DO

Ask a Stupid Question – “Have you put on weight?”  “Yes.  I only weighed 7 pounds when I was born.” On February 28 I posted a recipe for stuffed sweet potato.  It was lovely and delicious and  a little too work intensive for me.  So I simplified it. Trouble began in Dodge when I served…
