    Happy Thanksgiving

    ~~ Happy Thanksgiving to you all ! ~~ Have a safe and fun football weekend and of course: Remember to stop and give thanks for something or someone else in your life. And: GO BROWNS !
  2. We are doing the traditional Thanksgiving Day turkey, stuffing, real mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, my wife's green beans, a sweet potato pie dish, etc, etc. I did get to sample my wife's stuffing mix before she put the whole thing into the oven OMG delicious ! We had her homegrown herbs some still growing in pots inside the house they are so much to dishes but none more than turkey 🦃 dinner. They just go together with everything. Mmmmmm. We are loaded with fresh herbs since my wife retired in 2017 especially since our neighbors moved to Columbus in 2018 to be close to their kids. They'd just come by and cut what they wanted and they liked to cook. Then the 2020 stay away stuff we have bags and bags of 14 varieties of them. She will probably bag them and give them to other neighbors. After she gets done talking with her sister in Chicago we will eat around 3 pm. I will actually miss having PIT/BAL at 8 this year. -BUT- there will will be turkey 🦃 TV dinners, sandwiches, sweet potato and pumpkin pie 🥧 dishes for Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday night football games ! Food & football, oh yeah ! Bon appetit to you all. Halftime of game 1 on now, time for snack 2. It's a good thing that my doctor wants me to put on a little more weight...... nice time to dig in !
  3. Oh God not that ferocious Jacksonville November Wind.......worse that that Oakland Autumn Wind........ The Autumn Wind is a pirate Blustering in from sea, With a rollicking song, he sweeps along, Swaggering boisterously. His face is weather beaten. He wears a hooded sash, With a silver hat about his head, And a bristling black mustache. He growls as he storms the country, A villain big and bold. And the trees all shake and quiver and quake, As he robs them of their gold. The Autumn Wind is a raider, Pillaging just for fun. He'll knock you 'round and upside down, And laugh when he's conquered and won.
  4. Oh BTW my wife's CHILI CON CARNE with KIDNEY BEANS and her special ORANGE ( not really yellow) BUTTERNUT SQUASH was really good but that's not a big surprise being that she's a true scratch cook but it did come out delicious. The butternut squash did give it a nice sweet mild taste that went along well with her Joe regular CHILI con Carne and Kidney bean chili. It wasn't really a hot chili or fireball chili taste at all. We don't really have a recipe for it YET she just threw it together kind of like how my grandmother cooked.......the best cook I've ever known. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SO NOW THAT IS OVER WHAT IS EVERYONE HAVING FOR THANKSGIVING DAY ? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Traditional Thanksgiving Day fixins ? Turkey plus or maybe something else ? Oven cooked turkey or deep fried gobbler ? Ham, steak, your special day meal ? All grilled food ? Pasta ? Pizza ? Eating out ? Whatever it is take a few minutes in this crazy 2020 to give thanks for what really matters in this world. ~. Happy Thanksgiving to you all and have a great weekend. ~ And GO BROWNS ! (mmmmmmmm, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday football leftovers )
  5. Kind of a home game for brother jigs this week. Ever go to any Florida games this year ? No matter what it's always a GO BROWNS week.....baby ! Here's the Thanksgiving Day and early Sunday games including the AFCN games. (see the link for all of the games and more https://www.vegasinsider.com/nfl/odds/las-vegas )
  6. Oh I showed your E-Z Chicken Chili to my wife....she said it looked like a good dip. We haven't made Chicken Chili in awhile. Bon appetit !
  7. For the week 11 GAMEDAY supper meal the wife is cooking up some Joe regular CHILI with meat and kidney beans but with some yellow butternut squash. Hmmm, I'll have to see how that comes out. And of course earlier today GO BROWNS, 7-3...... baby !

  10. My wife liked them in school. Easy to make you hungry for a quick meal. Even a guy can buy ground meat, onions, a package of mushrooms or two, beef broth and some staples in the pantry and throw them together for a meal with a good side like mashed potatoes (see refrigerated section) maybe some creamed spinach, mmmmmm. Beats fries and a burger !!!! Bon appetit !
  11. Never gets old and it's still quick and easy. You can vary the mushrooms for a varied taste. Buttons or baby (porta)bellos or crementi or shiitake or whatever you like.

    Browns vs Eagles on TV

    Looks like a nice FOX TV Sunday. Cleveland vs Philadelphia early and GB vs indianapolis late. The Ohio CBS Early tv commercial surfing is on 3 different pro football games... looks like RedZone for me.
