Fish Prep 101

September 17, 2021
I grew up in an environment where fishing, clamming, crabbing, etc. was a common occurrence.  I'm familiar with cleaning fish and shellfish.  So, that being said, I've got to say I have never seen internal bruising in salmon until today.  And neither has my husband.  Normally my husband will go f...

  • Still not dead
    September 14, 2021
    The internet now makes it easier to find out if someone has died.  Years ago, I had a coworker whose first task every morning before work started was to read the obituaries and find out who died that she knew.  She's probably dead by now.  But I'm not going to look and see.    That's…

    I've been thinking about family lately.  My family.  I've failed miserably as a family member.  I sometimes wonder if I have some sort of social dysfunction.  I probably do.  I think it's culminated over years of poor choices and indifferent role models.  I've always wanted the big family that in...

    My husband had to contact our local bank to see if it was open.  He needed to access our safety deposit box for personal records.  Anyway, the last time I went to the branch was several months ago and it was closed to the public.  You had to make an appointment.  And I wondered if…

  • Quinoa
    September 10, 2021
    I'm harvesting my quinoa.  Never grew it before so everything is a learning process.  I almost feel like I'm taking a step back in time.  Winnowing the chaff from the grain.  It's kind of relaxing.  Thank goodness I don't have acres of the stuff - just a few plants.  Enough to make a few meals. &...

    September 7, 2021
    Went to Oklahoma this week.  First time I'd been there.  It was - well, interesting.  Hot and humid.  Cicadas so loud.  Road construction everywhere.  The hotel room's bathroom sink never drained properly.  I kept waking up at 3 a.m. every night.  My husband met his potential family for the first...

  • Casting Call
    August 29, 2021
    What started as basic time wasting while waiting for something to cook, in a moment of random searching, I found myself looking at local casting calls for "faith based" actors.  And I found a request for an actor to portray the Holy Spirit.  And it was for men only.  And I wondered why.  Who made...

    August 19, 2021
    Went to the dump the other day.  Lots of fun.  My husband managed to get into another confrontation at the dump.  We got a dump trailer last  year and have been using it regularly.  It's been a huge timesaver and our yard always looks slightly cleaner.  I say slightly because I do not do pristine...

  • Stealing
    August 14, 2021
    I'm sure a lot of people have stolen something in their life.  For many, it was a rite of passage to shoplift something during middle school/high school.  I didn't shoplift.  But I can remember stealing something.  I must have been about 4 or 5 years old.  My mother and I were at a friend's house...

    August 13, 2021
    Yesterday we ran some errands and I wanted to get it done before it became too hot and too smoky.  I'm not going to complain about the smoke.  People have lost their homes and properties, some have even lost their lives, so I don't feel like I should bellyache too much about the air quality. &hel...
