Hi contentandwell,
It’s late your time,but just got done with dinner. I’ve been up since 5:00 A.M. Thank you so much for your mom’s recipe. I already printed it out, and will make it on Sunday.
I will cut the recipe in half, since it’s just me now.
I will omit the sugar since I do not have any in the house.
It sounds so good, can’t wait to try it. I got to the market at 6:15 A.M. already there were 20 people ahead of me. They have a counter person who only lets 15 people in at a time.
All aisles are marked one way. I accidentally went the wrong way down one isle, and some man with his wife yelled at me, LADY YOU ARE GOING THE WRONG WAY WATCH THE FLOOR AISLES.
IM GLAD I WEAR FULL FACE COVERINGS. This guy got close when he yelled. Yes, he was wearing a masks, but his wife was not.
I was only able to get some items on list. Came home disappointed. I put items away, and had breakfast. Just as I was about to leave again to check out another market, the
Construction contractor pulls up and said he’s sending 2 workers to start on the garage.
He was suppose to send 5 but he’s spread too thin.
He stayed in his truck until the 2 workers showed up. He had one of those thermators that do not touch the skin. Used it on the workers.
Well, two people doing 5-6 people’s job, I see this will be all week job.
They left at 5:30P.M. I race to the market, and found a million people standing to get in.
Too tired I just came home.
Thanks also for the cheese info. I just buy SARGENTO sliced cheese.i can only tolerate one slice.
Yes, AMYS is in Petaluma,Ca. Did you know they make soups?
Not a big selection like Campbell’s. But that’s o.k. Campbell’s is full of salt, so I do not buy it.

I read your profile, you worked at ETHAN ALLAN.
I could of used your expertise after the Wolsey Canyon Fire.
EA has beautiful furniture. I had no idea they were a national company, always thought just California.
I’ll bet your place is beautiful.
I have Thomasville, Bernhardt, Kargas, but the Kargus was ruined, at least some of it.
Other furniture That is new came from a small custom furniture company.
Now I order from Wayfair, the quality is o.k.
I really like to see and feel the furniture, but at this stage Wayfair has been reliable.
Do you remember American of Martinsville? I think they are out of business, and Thomasville was bought out by Lane. There went the quality.
I had a friend who owned a design studio with her husband back in the 60s and 70s
I used to go to the wholesale show rooms with her, and see all the beautiful furniture.
I love BAKER,but the price tag, another story. Not sure if Baker is still around?
Anyway it’s late, Again thanks for your moms recipe.
Take care,
Funcountess

@funcountess I hope you will enjoy the recipe. For me, the red onion is essential. That was always part of the recipe. I added the green beans and I like that a lot. Not only does it add to the taste and to the look but it lowers the carbs.
When you bought the Sargento cheese did you check for zero sugar and that it is aged? Those are the important things.

I worked for Ethan Allen part-time in their customer service, I was not a "designer". When a customer had a problem I would often go to their home to check it out and photograph it and then try to get a partial or full refund from corporate. Our home was fully furnished at that time so I did not buy much furniture there. When we moved to this town I purposely avoided purchasing furniture there because I figured I would see the same thing all of over town. I am familiar with Baker, but our furniture is pretty much all Council Craftsman which I don't know is in business anymore. We have a few of a couple of other brands too that also did a lot of mahogany 18th-century style furniture. My living room is formal Sheraton Sofa, Chippendale loveseat) and has not changed in the 40 years we have had this furniture because the LR is not used a lot. The family room is the high use room and has a more casual style. Colonial style homes and furniture and 18th-century furniture were very big in our New England town.
Ethan Allen is actually based in Connecticut.
