    My dad broke into the stockyards at fourteen or fifteen, stopping school and got arrested for truancy. He returned at sixteen and stayed
    until he was drafted for Korea, then resumed work as a cattle buyer for Wilson Packing upon his return. I remember my first steak
    at the Stockyards Inn when I was eight or nine and walking through the muck and mire of the yards during cattle inspections with him.
    The cattle business and the yards were in his blood.

  3. Chicken-bacon-Ranch pasta salad. Sourdough toast on the side.

    Chicken breast (cooked in olive oil, s&p, garlic), diced
    Yellow & red cherry tomatoes, halved
    English cucumber, diced
    Sharp cheddar cheese, cubed
    Ranch dip (homemade with Mexican sour cream)
    Mini penne pasta

    Dump it all in a big bowl, mix, check if it needs more s&p. Chill. Enjoy. :)

  5. That sounds like a great salad. A little English with the cucumber, Mexican with the sour cream and Italian with the pasta. A tour of the world in one tasty meal. I might just use your recipe sometime this week. :)

  6. Lily ate two servings tonight (thanks, growth spurt!), and begged for leftovers for her school lunch tomorrow. She has a thermos-full waiting for her to devour. It is really, really tasty.

  10. We got a stellar email from Lily's teacher that Lily's hard work (and my blood, sweat, and tears) are paying off by significantly raising her math grade. It was such good news we went out for celebratory pizza. Lily & I shared a Canadian bacon, pineapple, pepperoni, & black olives combo, Hubby had sausage, mushroom, & jalapenos.

  11. When I was single (which was for about 15 years), I can say with complete confidence that I never had that many items of food in my house at one time - not just those specific items, I'm saying any food items. Other than the packets of salt, pepper and mayo you get when you either bring home or order in pizza, burgers, etc., I wouldn't have had any of those ingredients in my house.

    Very impressive and tasty looking salad.

  12. That’s too funny. I believe everything you stated in your post because your avatar picture is a slice of pizza. :)

  13. If we eventually turn into the food we've eaten the most in our lives, I will wake up one morning as either a slice of pizza or a jar of peanut butter (with chocolate chip cookies for hands in either case).

    Chicken a la King, if that is old fashioned enough ha ha

    Improvised this to use up a package of Spinach Fettucine noodles. Made the topping with a can of Campbells Chunky cream of chicken noodle soup hopped up with some sliced mushrooms, green onions, and red pepper left over from last night's recipe. Fresh ground black pepper and some Parmesan cheese. Glass of tomato juice.

    Green noodles with white sauce containing red and green made a pretty plate.

    One of my favorites. Even bought a special ceramic dish for it. Kinda looks like a pound cake pan where the center holds the beer. Never tips over as the cans sometimes do.
