Idea for a blog but my mind is scattered so please bear with... Up at the Poppy's house and want to cook for him. I make things that he may not cook. So yesterday I made Hummus. It's his recipe but he does not make it. He wants it with tofu. I make it when I'm up here and he says… MORE

My Father gave me a cookie today (from the store). It was a Madeleine. Then he told me a story about an author,  last name of Proust.  I know nothing about the author, but I golldangey know how to spell his last name. Looks like I was raised by a couple of librarians. One of them mutated into… MORE

This is a blog but a challenge also. I wrote one the other day for my Pa because for some odd reason the idea came up in conversation. They are so fun and kinda bouncy. It's spring... Here goes... Wait, be kind, as this is not real poetry, just joyful silliness... There was a redhead liked… MORE

This guy I hang around with beet me tonight. He leans towards the carnivore side and I'm a bit more of an omnivore. So he went to the store the other day. He asked what I wanted. "Pickled beets!" He came home a bit remourseful because that store didn't carry them any more. However they did… MORE

He really did, I found that interesting and kinda cool!  You know how when you go camping and you find a fairly level spot and then you carve it a bit with a shovel for a more level sleep? The Grinch has done that on the top of my brain and then he pitched his tent! I know when I am not… MORE

GWAR is an interesting band. Their story is that they found some  costumes in a high school dumpster (leftover from a play) and said hey! let's start a band! They say they were horrible musicwise at first, but they got by with costumes and imagination. Eventually they caught up with the… MORE

Well, golldangeys, it has been a day. A heck of  a dreck of a. What am I complaining about? Have seen worse. Bugged the Poppy to look at my first blog and his comment was "surprised to see that people rated you as an expert cook."  He said he liked the story though. Harumph! I called him back… MORE

About Me
Maiden name McCartney,the red is from Great Gpa. He came to Colorado from Scotland in his kilts. Love quilting and my family. My sons bring the "red" out in me by calling a quilt a blanket. Fiance and I live in a HUD home that we are remodeling slowly into our idea of what wonderful will someday be. Ah heck, it's wonderful for us to have our own house & not sleep in our vehicle. We had both experienced that B-4 we met each other. SO NEVER SAW that one coming. Sleeping my truck at 39? We agreed we wanted a house B-4 marriage. B careful what you wish for. So we moved in w/ no bathroom, no heat,no gas, we cooked our dinners in an electric wok on the kitchen "counter" that was a door horizontal with a sink installed in it. We had 5 roomates and no shower,garden hose led from the only hot water hookup through the living room to the side walkway,we showered behind the gate. No roomates these days.Thank goodness. Now, we shower inside & talk to friends who made their old house happen. Life!!
My favorite things to cook
Yeast bread. My Mom told me often that bread is one of the best things in life. I tried to make it starting at 9 years old. No idea what a "stiff dough" meant or how to treat yeast. Steadfast, my Mom would eat that just baked slice of a brick and tell me it was good. Then my Dad got into the mix. Thank goodness for his analytical skills. Shortly after that he taught me the why's and wherehows of yeast baking. Love it. Worked at a few bakeries and still the most fun is bread at home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
One is Scotch shortbread from my Granny & Great Aunt Elsie. My Poppy tells me that the original recipe said to "start with a wee bit o stinkin butter".
My cooking triumphs
Can make a mean pot of green chili, but the prob is that I taught one of my sons and my guy how to make it. They took over! Now when I make it the two of them are in the background telling me how to do it! AAaargh!!! You guys! Do you remember who taught you this recipe? (My ex MIL taught me.)
My cooking tragedies
I HATED cooking & loved baking. Baking is more precise. Finally realized I'm a good cook (10 yrs. out}. Had to feed the kids. Then one night I went to bed, heard an explosion downstairs. The hard boiled eggs burst & decorated the kitchen ceiling. I was tired! Ooops.
