Five for Friday


1. Happy Veterans Day Grandpa!  We will have a lot of catching up to do one day.  I’m sure Uncle Fred will have some jokes too.

2. I have a hankering for a big ol’ cheeseburger for supper tonight.  That and some onion rings and big glass of ice tea to wash it all down.  I know it’s not healthy eating but I can use it after this week.

3. I found an excellent chicken pot pie recipe that I’m gonna try this weekend.  Now I just have to see if I can actually make a pie dough.  It sure gonna be an interesting experience for me.

4. Number 3 means a market trip for me.  Maybe I got lucky on one of my lottery tickets.  I hit on one of them Tuesday when I checked them.  I won a whole $4.00!  I told the cashier I wanted my winnings in really BIG bills.  Yeh, I got a “Yanno, you’re damn crazy!“look from her.

5. Here’s another view of our weather for today for Miss Anna.  It’s a beautiful 8C (46F) out there right now.  The birds are enjoying the feeders and Mr. Squirrel is gone … for now.  I wondering where my cardinals went and where the Blue Jays are.  They will be a nice sight come winter.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at:

  1. I have the BEST simple pie crust recipe if you want it! It is grandma-quality and stupid simple… Lemme know. Probably something I should share this time of year, huh? 🙂

        1 T white vinegar

        With pastry blender mix together the first 4 ingredients until well combined. In a separate bowl, combine vinegar, egg and water. Whisk well. Combine the two mixtures stirring with a fork until all ingredients are moistened. With your hands, mold into a ball. Cover with clear wrap and chill at least 15 minutes before rolling.

        Food processor method: In a medium bowl, combine vinegar, egg and water and mix well. Set aside. In your food processor fitted with a dough hook/blade, combine flour, sugar, salt and Crisco. Pulse until well blended. Add the wet mixture and mix until your dough balls. Remove the dough and form into a ball. Cover with clear wrap and chill at least 15 minutes before rolling.
