After buying the ingredients for one of Lee's favorite casseroles last week, I finally made it for lunch. We like those big Amish style thick noodles and peas and chopped onions in ours.
I run out of ideas of things to make. I can even remember when I was a teen ager that I wondered how my mom decided what to cook day after day. She was a good cook and we had great meals. In eighth grade at Liberty Junior High we had to take "cooking." I don't remember the actual name of the class. We learned how to make Eggs a la Goldenrod and served breakfast to the faculty. I did not like the class because all the stuff about vitamins and nourishment did not stay in my brain for the tests. That was the only class I ever got a D in. I believe the only other recipe I remember is escalloped cabbage and we do have that now and then.
I am lucky that my husband likes any kind of casserole - especially if it has hamburger in it. My dad was not thrilled with casseroles. He didn't like everything all together in one pot. His joke with my mom after a meal was, "I have tasted worse but I can't remember where."
I wonder if they still have cooking classes in high school now. I don't know any students here to ask. We had sewing in the seventh grade. I do believe the local high school has what we called vocational classes for anyone who wants to take welding or electronics or wood class. I think there should be more subjects of that type.
Can you tell that not much is happening around here today? It's our oldest son's birthday and we have texted greetings to him. Miss our sons and their families!
