This morning when it finally got light I could see that the snowstorm left the evergreens looking like they've been frosted with thick icing. The alders and vine maples are all lacy. Once again the outdoors looks like something from a fairy tale. Thank goodness for lots windows. I can at least enjoy the scenery.
Today I think we will have those biscuits and gravy I was craving yesterday. I have the makings including some chicken breasts. If I can get into town sometime before next Tuesday the store in Eatonville has Roasting Chickens on sale. That sounds so wonderful to me. I've missed roast chicken. (the chicken, biscuits and gravy will wait another day. I heated up leftovers because the kitchen was too cold to work in)
What ever happened to stewing hens? I have been wanting to cook up some chicken for stock and some for noodles. I make my own noodles. I know were to buy stewing hens, but they are terribly expensive there. So, I have just put off buying them. I guess I should just break down and pay the price. The problem is I can remember when you could get a stewing hen for pennies.
I think I must be getting old. I keep saying, "I remember when". I remember my grandparents saying that. I often couldn't imagine some of the things they remembered. Now my grandchildren can't imagine some of the things I describe.
Ann, We bought this house in 1995. Carol originally took out the mortgage, Later she refinanced it. Still later I refinanced it. We are both on the mortgage, but I am the primary. She is attempting to get it refinanced through some of the modification programs but so far she hasn't been able to make any progress.
I have only once since 1962 lived in a rental property. Home ownership has always been paramount for me. Only two of my children currently own their homes. Society has changed a great deal.
On the news today there is a story about a prank at a drive-in window in a restaurant. It made me think of this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGkMhGqbJhY Does anyone else remember?
See you tomorrow.
