I take pictures and show them because I dont have anyone else to show them to.
I used to do most of the cooking and would present my accomplishments to my wife.
I dont have that option anymore.

The local supermarket has point cut at 1.49, and flat cut at 1.89 a pound this week.


If you have to ask what a point cut and a flat cut is, I truly feel sorry for you.

Usually means more for the rest of us.

Steens syrup is the gold standard for cane syrup in the south.
It is the dark cooked down juice of the sugar cane.
Steens is the company.
You should order some you wont be sorry.

And yes I have had the best of the best dark amber maple syrup made at the home of the people that made it in Maine.
Nothing like store bought by any stretch of the the imagination.
Just like I have had the olive oil straight from the press in Spain brought back in a big soda bottle by the woman that collected it.

I don't eat syrup, but I do love the heavier and even darker product from sugar cane (molasses). I use it anywhere other folks use syrup. Hard chocolate fudge with pecans and molasses is out of this world good.

I appreciate your photos. Most often I want to eat what you have posted. I just never think to take pictures even if we go out to eat and have something fabulous somewhere ( which never happens.) so I admire everyone who stops and takes the time to share.

I had a giant plate of scrambled eggs with Colby cheese and bacon last night.
Dessert was my beloved Texas grown seeded oranges, got a 10 pound bag for 5 dollars with dollar off coupon.
I love these oranges because they are sweeter than navel oranges.

Today's noon meal was the "smoked" picnic ham from the store. It was on sale this past week for 99 cents/lb and was about a nine lb piece. I had the meat man cut it in half for me. Half is in the freezer for another day and I simmered the other half this morning for about two and a half hours. That's how my mom used to cook it and I love it. That half made a gracious plenty, enough for two people today and tomorrow, sandwiches and still more to freeze up. Probably some with eggs tomorrow morning.

To go with it I steamed some cabbage and got some of the last of last spring's green peas out of the freezer. They still taste fresh.

I like boiled ham too.

I'm frying chicken thighs and okra in my homemade lard.
Also picked up four more packs of pork fat for 25% off the 99 ¢ a pound it was going for.
Put it in the freezer.

I made chicken strips from a package of 4 breasts that cost a little under $5. I used a seasoning from Fiesta brand called, "Chicken Rub". It must have some MSG in it or something that makes you want to take a bite before you are finished with the bite before. I can't read tiny font anymore, and didn't like it when I had 20/20 eyesight.

Pork fat around here goes for about 3.99/12 ounces.



I noticed in the discount section of WalMart, some sort of organic bottled lard, 10.95/16 ounces, marked down from 16.00/16 ounces, and still collecting dust.

I don't buy navels, I get the Texas Valencias. They aren't as big and beautiful as a navel, but taste is Sooooooooo much better.
