Cats, Cancer, and my Sister

My late sister loved cats. They loved her unconditionally. Love was something she had found  extremely difficult her life. She would rescue every cat which came to her door to love  unconditionally.  Her  71st birthday will be tomorrow. She was born on our P’pere’s birthday and her youngest child was born on our M’mere’s. Her first great-grandchild was born two hours after she …

This is No Yoke!

I like breakfast.  I like eggs. Boiled, fried, scrambled, made  into an omelete or a salad. They are a great breakfast food, and sometimes complete a dinner. One dinner specifically comes to mind, and that is eggs with hash–home-made hash is best. Corned beef, roast beef, turkey, even chicken. And made with plenty of onions and …

I realize there is no control over one’s  adult children’s lives. They should make their own choices.  I attempted to influence them as they were growing up to become  people …

Left-over lasagna

My lasagna with a layer of egg-plant was good. We all liked it.  But–laugh–she picked out the egg-plant!  I thought she would–never liked it for some reason. When my kids were young, I would sneak egg-plant into a pasta sauce by chopping it, then sautéing it with the onions, and perhaps peppers. If one of my kids asked …
