Humor and fun chat diversions during the Coronavirus crisis: Join us

Posted by imallears @imallears, Mar 26, 2020

Hello
I’m hoping to share some humor during these stressful times and hope noone take offense.
I’m also hoping my attached cartoon comes across as I have not posted any attachments before.

Sending this from my phone

This was getting pretty far off the topic of walking, so I replied here, under diversions – with the particulars.

Koshars' Sausage Kitchen in Gilbert is the place – our favorite blood sausage (husband and one daughter), potato sausage (other daughter and me) hot Italian jerky (son-in-law), porketta roasts (all of us) and homemade hard dry salami. The recipes used are traditional to the Slovenes and very similar to what my father-in-law and his cousin made for us. They also have good smoked pork chops, but my husband does our own, and really good brats, but we got our favorites from the Farmers' Market this summer and stocked up well. And they don't put enough garlic in the Polish sausage, so I get those from my "hometown" sausage maker here in Minneapolis – guys I grew up with, now training the 4th generation.

A favorite winter meal at our house is baked sausage, boiled potatoes and sour cucumbers with onions – pretty typical old-country comfort food.

We also stopped at Cane Lake Candy in Virginia for the dark chocolate "Hot air" candy and took a drive through my husband's hometown. Normally we would have stopped at a local bar there to meet with his cousins or classmates, but… And we would have hit one of the L&M Supply stores, but not this time either.

We tried to finish the day with a drive through the Bentleyville lights, but the line was over a mile long at 4:40, with bumper-to-bumper traffic heading in from 35 and from Superior – and Tuesday is supposed to be the "least busy". So we had curbside takeout from Pizza Luce & headed home.

All in all a great 'venture as our 4 yo grandson would say. We were sorry we couldn't have him with us.

Thanks, sounds like the trip was well worth it. My Grandma used to make blood sausage when I was a child as well. I never found a taste pallet for it, however some of your other buys sound great. Thanks for the Dark Chocolate candy idea as well.

What a trip! I'm all for a trip especially if the destination involves food. Looks like you're all stocked up for the winter!

@nurseheadakes .. closed captioning option is at bottom of video I think the cogwheel has the option.. may be the cc and the cogwheel. Somehow it auto shows up on all videos that closed captioning is available for me. Sometimes I have to click on the cogwheel to change the language. I have a little bit of hearing impairment and the cc option helps me. I find when the video does not have the cc option that earphones help.

On my computer version – it did not allow for showing the option for captioning…so I just listened to as much of the video as I could. Next time I will see if I can pull of CC by playing around on the video. Thanks ZeeGee.
