A wonderful dish, Swamp

Until the day when I'm very hungry and someone plops that dish in front of me, I'll just have to take your word for it, Tom. ;)

 8) 8) 8)  If you really want to treat yourself slice some liverwurst (thick) and place in between two slices of multigrain bread covered with REAL mayonaise, throw in a few dill pickle chips and some fresh onion .......... HMMMMMM!!! ..... Now wash that down with a very cold glass of 1 or 2% Milk ........ Or you can make a run down to Louisiana and pick up some boudan (sounds like boo dan) - Don't know what's in it and don't want to - It's like a little heaven on earth!!!! (although I did eat 5 lbs of it one day and spent the next three days in the hospital with tubes stuck in me!!) ....... I tried grits twice .... Yuck!! .... Must have been a conspiricy between cooks!!! :-X :-/ :'(

  Yes- sounds like the best they can do at playing soccer or something. I wish I could draw farside comix and post them. But the sheep I'm picturing are animated- or as animated as sheep get.. :o  lw

I was going through some old posts and came across this one that hadn't been added to in a long time.  It started out a simple enough question but then some fool made a mistake of mentioning that staple food of the Dixie - GRITS and the whole topic got derailed.

There are a few new members who maybe haven't dug to the bottom of all the post and maybe a few of us who have "Old Timer's" that may enjoy reading some of the posts again.

For best results,  start with page 1.

Thanks for dredging this one up, Bib. I got so hongry reading it, I ate a jelly donut left over from yesterday's shaft...er..staff meeting.

Wonder what happened to Papa Dave?  He is from this area, and I was looking forward to meeting him, then he just disappeared. ???

Russ,
That is why I use water instead of petroleum products on my blades.  My V belt on my WoodMizer got so tight I had to cut it off.  I was also concerned about the hydraulic hoses, etc.

Water's cheaper too, and readily available. :D

Thanks Bibbyman!  I just reread the whole thing and sure did enjoy it.  I do wonder what happened to Papa Dave. He said he wanted a hat and then stopped at 76 posts. I hope nothing bad happened to him. ::)

 Cooscoos, I just discovered it... Mabe someone else noticed it too. It is right there in the stores! It's pretty good and easy to make for a guy on the go. It looks kinda like grits.

  Now I am so DanG hungry I forgot what I was going to talk about lubing something.  All I got to say now is that 'round these parts gravy is a fork food.

Most every guy probably thinks their mom is the best cook there ever was.  Well,  I can't say that.  Mom gets so mad every time she makes a family dinner - someone will make fun of her white gravy.  It's surely thick enough to stand a spoon in - even when hot.  Sometimes,  you have to mix in mashed'taters just to thin 'um down.  Mom only cooks meat one way - burnt done.

One thing Mom can fix better than Mary and that's wild mushrooms.  Mary don't get the grease hot enough to get them crisp.  (Don't tell Mary I said I told y-all that.)
