Didn't notice when I got my day underway today, don't always "know" what the date is... days tend to run together, I'm doing good to recall month, and day of the week!

HAPPY FRIDAY 13th!  (It's still "Friday here...)

Be well, crazy friends, and pet that black kittie!

Getting lost in time must be one of those irritations attributable to advancing age. Our only hope of keeping a shred of dignity is to say we are more advanced than them there whippersnappers!

LOL! I like black cats but I did stay home yesterday to minimize possible effects from the 13th :)

LOL, Mike, think I lost my "dignity" when I lost my mind...! Maybe they're around here someplace, though...

Cat, I was home all day too (except a quick trip to my convenience market) but it was after dinner when I realized the "date." Where do the days go? Be well!

Ha my TWO black kitties and I had a great Friday the 13th. Might be because we didn't realize the date either. Since I stopped working, I seldom know what day it is unless I have something specific planned. I must say ignorance is bliss! BTW, why can't I message you on FB anymore?

For Me years All run together, I don't even remember how old I am most of the time. Like right now I would need to get out a calculator.

BigShotsMom, I had an issue with the email addy linked to FB, so I closed out FB, and changed password on email... Not sure what happend, but I "freaked" when recieving really strange emails. No longer using that email to speak of! Feel free to email me anytime at however! Seemed I kept emailing my dead MIL in my sleep, and such! Glad you and kitties had a safe Friday... and I DO remember that yours are both black! Be well, friend, good to hear from you as always!

King, "years" are not yet an issue for me, but days/months are a mess most of the time! Wait... what was I talking about? When did I decide that I like tomatoes... was it yesterday, or 2006? Just don't know... Be well, and cook crazy!

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
