friday night, i finally finished the 1903 F encyclopedia. for awhile i asked myself, A or Z, forward or back. and well, i gotta start at what people say is the beginning. and there are 3 volumns of just A. i just hope i can read them before i die.
and what do i do? chicken soup? or sauerkraut pork ribs?
well, today i made the ribs. it is soooo hard.
get some ribs. open 2 cans of BAVARIAN sauerkraut(it's just better), cover ribs in a baking pot.
cook about 1 1/2 hr at 350. uncover to brown kraut.
very german. and it is better the 2nd and 3rd day. so make a lot.
chicken soup, is a lot like my bean soup. but it uses carrots instead of tomatoes and no potatos. rice or noodles.
and the spices are slightly different.
oh, and uses browned or cooked chicken. raw is just gross.
spices. i use the basil, garlic, parsley, marjoram, and celery seed, but in chicken soup, i also add about 1/4 ts of curry powder. i like it with at least 8 shakes of the spice bottle. maybe more. and a little mustard powder. gotta use it somewhere.
and if you like it thicker, some corn starch. i have nver tried using cream.but i suppose it couldn't hurt right?
as i said, i made the ribs today and Basil ate some surprisingly, but then the boy ate some kraut! wonder if sybil would.

of course earlier today i was bitching at georgie.
well, it is very nippy here. but on wed i went out and did a no-no. i went to the 1st day of an estate sale. on the other hand, i didn't buy much and it was still reasonable.
it was a little post WW2 cracker box of a house. obviously a catholic woman who sewed a lot. and messy!
nice jewelry though. well, sort of. i bought a gaudy gaudy bracelet that i already have with matching earrings. sellable! also got a ruler(why?) a very old curling iron, no electric and an ol;d needle pack with good graphics(did you know people collect them?)-ebay. and a bat. a baseball bat. not a louisville slugger, but made in athens, georgia. and has pulaski on the end-on of our high schools.
and then i went over to near the highlands, wawatosa, but not quite. a little old bungalow like my grandparents down a way(2 1/2 blocks). sigh. 70's BAD! but fixable. i think. but good stuff. i got ANOTHER pretty east lakesque saw. another one??? gotta get them on ebay! also bought more silverplate silverware.
BUT, i wasn't gonna pay $20 for 5 SILVER art nouveou demitasse spoons.
so i go back for the last day. ooh! a nice spatula! teapot gone. OH! nice succelent in a mug. no spoons. darn. but take the 2 old rex stout's for ebay.a better deal at 1/2. so all in all a good week. but looking at this week. taint much.
dang. now i gotta clean.
