Gone, but not Forgotten. Where is she? someone asked. Not far was the loud response. Certainly not hiding in a large roasting pan, although I do have one about the size of a hog.
If I don't do this now, I never will, and if I never will, who will tell me if I am any good at the literature game? I am taking some time off to concentrate on writing a book...and you people have been distracting me. Oh yeah, sez you... What kinda book? Well, one with about 200 pages, give or take a dozen or so... maybe 300 who knows? Everyone knows Toolie has a lot to say at the best of times.
A DIY book??? Naaahhh, I'll leave that to the real mechanics at Canadian Tire and Home Depot.
A Recipe Book? Yeah, Right!!!! Like I would compete with this site or any other... Not in this lifetime... I have a tough enough time competing with some of you chefs, so I just don't, and won't.
Oh sure, I will cook some of your recipes, for special occasions. Pictures? Who knows? but don't hold your breath. Posting in the forums? Perhaps, but not on a regular basis... Posting recipes??? from time to time....

When you have to walk beside one dear to you in that lonesome valley, the women in your life will be on the valley's rim, cheering you on, praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf.
They will walk beside you, share your sorrow and share your tears, knowing all the while God is there with you, to give you the strength and faith you need and the everlasting blessings of healing love.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE HAPPEN IN THE WORLD (M. Gandhi)
IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO BECOME WHAT YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE (Georges Eliot)
THAT WHICH WE PERSIST IN DOING BECOMES EASIER, NOT THAT THE TASK ITSELF HAS BECOME EASIER, BUT THAT OUR ABILITY TO PERFORM IT HAS IMPROVED. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Food is my second favourite past time.
Lacquered Squab W/ Gingered Cabbage and Fennel-Pear Puree has become my favourite thing to cook, because it is a challenge
Poultry of any description, any combination of ingredients, big birds, little birds, any and all edible birds, fit for human consumption. Tell me what you have and I will cook it, eat it, review it. If I like it I will tell you; If I don't like it you will never know I cooked it, and I will never cook it a second time. I would not insult your intelligence with a bad review.... although I may have done it in the past.... if you deserved it.
I have reserved a chapter, for posterity, of reviewers who do not know the meaning of kindness but are bent on making other folks unhappy with their comments. What persuades them?
Folks, if you have nothing nice to say, it would be nice to say nothing.....
