made butter drenched chicken last night. some begging from the spares, but not very hard.
RANDOM SATERDAY RECIPE
not sure if i did this one. my grandma used cheese nips. italian restaurant up north used Ritz crackers and said it was siscilian(spelling?) chicken.cut chicken pieces to size desired. crush soda crackers (goldfish crackers are good too), add curry powder to taste. pepper? sure, why not.
melt stick of butter. yes, a whole stick. dip chicken in butter and coat with cracker crumbs. put in pan. when done put rest of butter in bottom of pan. cook at 350-400f. depends on how fast you want it. keep an eye on it. i use a toaster over at 450 and takes about 1/2 hour. smallish chicken bits. more cracker crumbs the better.
and yes, do try just the hot butter drenched cracker crumbs.
did i hear artieries clog just now?

of course i picked up an old bartlets, which is quite different. but but but you already started the famous letters book. toooooo many books to read.
but i am here cause i went to an estate sale. actually i first drove to one i didn't bother with, but i did get some good pictures of the allen-bradley clock. the LARGEST 4 sided clock in the world. a fact that a new york sidewalk seller knew about this fair city. he said he knew 4 things. so, from there i got back on the expressway to a too far sale. WHY did i ignore HUMMEL'S??? but i did manage to spend $1.75 on porcelain salt and pepper shakers, a potato masher, and a little mid-century turquoise desk lamp. ebay! and they threw in the old stuffed alligator. wow, it didn't go into the dumpster right away. nothing in there.
next time, let hummel's be a clue. but but but it was treasure traders. at least the drive was pretty.

RANDOM ROMAN ORATION
Cato the younger 63bc-]Instead of such virtues, we have luxury and avarice, the public distress and private superfluity; we extoll wealth, and yeild to indolence; no distitction is made between good men and bad; and ambition usurps the honors due to virtue. nor is this wonderful; since you study each his individual interest, and since at home you are slaves to pleasure, and here to money or favor; and hence it happens that an attck is made on the defenceless state.
so on sunday we learned of the deaths of Don Knotts and McGavin(brain fart-what's his first name? derick, darrick?) and for some reason 'mccloud' popped into my head.and who is dead on monday? Dennis weaver-McCloud. oh gee, sorry i had that thought.as if it's my fault. although a while back i caught a snippet of McCloud on TVland. OY, unbeLlIEVABLY sexist! i am afraid to watch any pre-80's show.

[Anacharsis] laughed at him [Solon] for imaginin the dishonesty and covetousness of him countrymen could be restrained by written laws, which were like spider's webs, and would catch, it is true, the weak and the poor, but easily be broken by the mighty and rich.-Anacharsis 600bc

Sometimes give your services for nothing, calling to mind a previous benefaction or present satisfaction. And if there be an opportunity of serving one who is a stranger iin finacial straights, give full assistance to all such. For where there is love of man, there is also love the art. For some patients, though consciousof that their condition is perilous, recover their health simply through their contentment with the goodness of the physician and it is well to superintend the sick to make them well, to care for the healthy to keep them well, also to care for one's own self, so as to observe what is seemly.-Hippocrates 400-377bc precepts
not sure why i wrote that one down.
