A cook’s prayer

RICHMOND — Thank you, Lord, for the thermometer inserted in the Butter Ball and a large family to eat it all

Thank you, Lord, for instant potato flakes and turkey gravy in a can

All those microwave things that don’t need a pan

Thank you, Lord, for Stove Top with its herbs and spices

And for Green Giant and Birds Eye, too

Without their cream corn and brussels sprouts, I don’t know what I would do

Thank you for the Pillsberry dough boy, Betty Crocker and Duncan Hines

When I need their help I reach out my hand

And there they are on my cabinet shelf all the time

Thank you, Lord, for the 1-800 hot line

That is staffed till Christmas time

(p.s. don’t forget their web site-www.tough turkey.com)

But, Lord, I have a question or two

What’s the difference between a sweet potato and a yam?

Oh yeah, Lord, how do you shuck a clam?

Thank you, Lord, for family, country and friends

And all the blessings of the day

Lord grant me enough refrigerator space to put the left overs away

Written by Betty Gonzales

The calorie selfish pay a price

This is the season to really do something good for someone else. If you are able, thank your post person, the letter carrier and even the garbage person.

I did something this year when I decided to leave stuff in my mailbox and in my newspaper tube, etc. I hope they enjoyed my home made goodies.

This really is the time to think back on all of those that have helped us out during the past year.

I was told once in an EKU class that the world may have a lot of automated processes, but we will still need service-type workers. I am thankful for these folks. I would hate to cut my own hair, have to go and get my mail or take my own garbage to the landfill each week, etc. I think you get my drift.

My wish for you in the coming year is good health, good heat and good food. To some folks this is the main source of their income. Be kind to the food bank and remember that the calories you give away may not rest in your bottom tomorrow.

    I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.

  • Shop your refrigerator, part two: Casseroles

    Last article, we wrote about making soup out of leftover ingredients you have around the house. With this winter giving us one more round of snow early in the month, a hot bowl of soup turned out to be a good way to stay warm while staying home.

  • Let’s have a Mardi Gras party in Kentucky

    It’s the time of year when the people in New Orleans celebrate a festival called Mardi Gras. Many states now do the same. Some call it “Fat Tuesday” which I have never understood till I went to New Orleans (five times) and saw all of the excitement for myself.

  • Beat the winter blues with meatballs

    When it’s this cold outside it’s nice to warm up with some good comfort food.
    I can think of few things more wonderful than the smell of simmering meatballs coming from the kitchen while I cuddle with my two young children, and a few good books, on a brisk winter day.

  • 01.31 Red Velvet Cookie.jpg Bake up some red velvet, white chocolate cookies

    After the kids come in from building snow forts and making snow angels, I like to have big cup of hot chocolate with extra marshmallows. But if you really want to indulge after playing in the snow, try these melt-in-your-mouth cookies.

  • GinaNoemugpic.jpg Keeping food safe during emergencies

    Today’s article is one I have submitted before, but the information in it is worth reading again.
    The food in refrigerators and freezers represents a significant investment. Winter storms can cause power outages that may last from a few hours to several days before electricity can be restored.

    I recently dug out my electric dehydrator and decided I was going to learn some new things about dehydrating fruits and vegetables.
    It has been a wonderful learning experience. I will share with you some of the items I dehydrated.
