    I'm in the mood to catch up from not being able to cook much for a week
    and a half so today I set about preserving and cooking.

    Last night: I canned up 9 pints of roasted tomato sauce and made a
    really rich beef stock.

    Today: I canned up the beef stock - 8 pints. I prefer it canned to
    frozen as it is ready to use. While the stock was processing, I put a
    whole chicken on the grill for roasting. Since the grill was on, I
    decided to add a nice pot of baked beans that will be canned in about an
    hour or so. Once the beans were going, I decided to can up the green
    beans and okra. At four jars total it was hardly worth running the
    canner but okra is so hard to come by here and the beans are still going
    full tilt. I swear next year I'm going to try growing okra! While
    waiting for the pressure canner to depressurize, I started the 3 huge
    heads of cauliflower for freezing.

    Tonight: I'm finishing up the cauliflower then doing up 4 lg heads of
    broccoli for freezing. I'll can up the baked beans. I'll make some
    gravy from the chicken drippings. I'm thinking of doing a batch of hot
    sauce from the BBB since I have an abundance of hot peppers and a good
    basket full of tomatoes to use up. We'll see as I'll be running out of
    steam pretty soon ;)

    Dinner: DH is away so I'm going to have some of the roasted chicken,
    cauliflower with cheese sauce and perhaps beans or maybe even a potato.

    Dear Patches:
    I love the way you say, I canned 'up.' I wonder where you are from --
    that's something that I would say.
    My DH did grown okra for about 5 years here in Virginia until he got
    arthritis -- but it was very prolific and we had a little bit almost
    everyday during the summer, just hot stirfried, not breaded, nothing.
    Sometimes added a little soy sauce on our plates.
    I admire your canning abilities; I tried it one summer years ago and without
    a/c, it's a tribute to one's stamina.

    My dinner tonight was dal (red pink lentils w/tumeric, ginger, dundicut
    pepper, asaoefetida & cumin seeds), curried coconut rice, and cucumber/onion
    raita with a glass of wine. On to a movie and some sweets.

    Not funny. Please think twice before posting, because that was a
    cruel thing to say.

    So don't laugh.

    Maybe you didn't find it funny - that does not mean that no one else did, or
    that it was inherantly 'not funny' - just that you did not find it that way.

    > Please think twice before posting, because that was a

    No it was not a cruel thing to say. How could it have been? I posted it in a
    good humoured, good natured way, a jocular comment on the amount of energy
    it must have taken to get such an incredible amount done. Do you think that
    Patches or anyone reading it would take my comment and believe Patches to
    have such a drug problem?!?

    C'mon - Heck, it's not like it was even pointed at you.

    I urge you to find a way to become less over-sensitive on the behalf of
    others - it will do your blood pressure and/or nerves a whole world of good.
    Trust me!

    Be wise and well my dear.

    I didn't find it funny either.

    No, but it was directed at me. Yes it takes a lot of energy and yes a
    lot of work for the amount of cooking I posted about. Obviously you
    were the only interested poster and you did take the time to post a
    cruel and undeserved comment. I take great pride in my cooking and
    don't feel like being referred to as some type of druggie. It was a
    legitimate cooking thread. Sorry, but your comment was in very bad
    taste. Am I upset, perhaps on the surface enough to say something but
    not enough to let it bother me. That's why we have killfiles for people
    who tend to try dumping the apple cart. Have a great day. Goodbye.

    Why do you feel it was 'cruel'?

    > I take great pride in my cooking and

    And so you should take great pride in it - I was astounded at how much you
    had achieved in that amount of time. I hadn't figured you for such a
    sensitive type.

    Whatever - it is of course your choice to KF me, as it is also *your choice*
    to take ofence.
