Barnabas Collins, so I can't wait to see the movie. It looks hilarious. The Hunger Games looks good too. My aunt got me hooked on the trilogy.
This is the cast iron skillet that belonged to Mrs. Clark (the
babysitter) who was also our next door neighbor. She was always good for a
stick of butter or a cup of sugar. And she knew that we would return
the favor any time. She taught my dad how to make corn bread in this
skillet and let him keep it. I earned the honor of keeping and using
this beauty. It's a Wagner and was probably made sometime in the 1940s. It cooks like a dream and is one of my most prized possessions.
This old rolling pin was given to me by my paternal grandmother who taught me to make biscuits. The story is that this pin was used in a restaurant kitchen to prepare biscuits for George Washington. I don't know why they didn't get him to autograph it. I don't use this pin preferring my long French rolling pin. Besides, it's an family heirloom and probably worth a trillion dollars. It is carved from one piece of wood and quite hefty. Hopefully, none of my relatives were ever hit on the head with it.
I threw a corned beef into the crock pot before Sew Day yesterday. I made the boys corned beef hash for breakfast. That should cover our corned beef ration until next St. Patrick's Day. Wasn't St. Patrick the guy who banished all the snakes from Ireland? I saw another huge black snake this morning. It was hiding in a bush ready to strike and kill me and the dog. Just kidding, it was sunning itself, but it still made me scream. I was very close. My neighbors probably think I'm crazy.
