Memorable Trucks from The Past:
Now for today..
I love comments, This one I just wanted you to read and see Dar’s mama’s age. Dar & Bill have a wonderful family (BTW, Bill is a saint with a smile that lights up a room). Lately I mentioned this family and their lives in the wilds of Wisconsin. DAR's comment:
My mama was the best cook I have ever known, bar none. That includes
the few real chefs who have prepared meals I have eaten. I mentioned SOS
lately, my mama had her own version of that and it was very good.
Mama did not grow nor cook carrots.
When I do chicken here I usually have carrots and peas together with a little
onion also. BUT ‘Jackson’s Cafeteria’, a
well-known cafeteria in Gastonia has very good food and some of the best
carrots I have ever eaten. They are in a sweet sauce; I know they have added
sugar or some something to sweeten them, plus something is red, or they have
added food coloring.
As I type I have carrots cooking, Sherry just tasted them and
says they are good. I cut up 3 carrots, using about a cup of water mixed some
corn starch, brown sugar, a dash of salt, a dash of cinnamon (It sounds red,
HA!) and a about a tsp of honey (I like to add honey and garlic but I forgot
garlic, I use garlic in about everything, I just forgot)
Anyway, it tastes alright but not what I want. Any suggestions for a
sweetener for carrots I could make into a sauce?
