Feast Meets West: What’re Your Christmas Meal Favorites?

It’s never to early to plan for Christmas dinner, in my opinion. (Well, as long as it’s already December, I mean.) Having just waded through massive piles of great provender a few days ago, it may be hard for some of you to set your sights on the next Big Meal. Well, we here […]

One Week to Go; You Ready for the Invasion of the Turkeys?

No, I’m not talking about your in-laws, although you may be spending some time with them soon. (I certainly will. And that’s a Good Thing.) We’re now less than 170 hours until the annual contest to see who can get their tryptophan coma on first. Of course, if excess dressing, gravy, mashed and sweet […]

Saturday Smorgasbord at Reba’s

My mom grew up in a large farm family (seven girls, one boy, one bathroom) and all of them learned to cook. So one of the first things you can expect when the Clan gathers for a major event is a big meal, somewhere. Aunt Reba got tagged this time…

The World's Finest Soupfest at the White House

The Occasionally Annual White House Soupfest, Domino Marathon and Bragging Contest made its biggest showing in decades on Saturday. We had folks from far and wide stop by, set a spell and eat. Man, did we eat! Then, when we couldn’t force any more calories down the pipe we broke out the dominoes and […]

I’d like to pause today, in the middle of the Month of Eating Dangerously, and remember a special group of Americans who served so that we can celebrate in peace this Holiday season. I’m talking about the American soldiers, sailors, airmen and civilians in Hawaii who defended against an unprovoked attack, many giving their […]
