I have a dear friend who's a 100% born, bred and raised Cajun. You're probably not stretching the truth there, hehe!! Man, can she cook!! Some of the best Cajun meals I've ever had in my life. Her hubby owned a shrimp boat until not too long ago. The times we used to have, hehe! Loved going out shrimping with them in the Gulf and then cooking big pots of all different kinds of yummies for days and days afterward.... Good times..

I made crawfish étouffée the other night---a personal favorite. Listened to a little Wayne Toupes to round out the night

Yes! I did have some!! My mind was my worse enemy though. There are a few things that would be better on my palate if I didn't know what or how they were made, ROFLMBO!!

And what is that thing they cook in Ireland? Is it Haggas? Haggus? I don't even know how to spell it. Stomach, intestines or something isn't it? Is it even from Ireland? Or England..... Hmmmm.
No mind, it's plain nasty sounding. Never tried it though.

Case in point: I cant' eat meatloaf outside of my own home. Don't know where whatever is in it has been.

Or those Slim Jims. I used to love them. Can't think about eating one now.

Even meatballs, not unless I've cooked 'em. None of those store bought or pre-made things are ever in my freezer, LOL!!!

Hi Everybody! From Salem Ohio.

You guys never let me down as far as interesting reading goes. I gotta post a few words of thanks on the BG and Scottsville forums, but I'll probably be back for a few.

Hey Ancient Wolf one of these days I'm really gonna try to sew a rip in a pair o jeans with a yucca plant...Just so I can say I did that.

LOL! Not a problem, Ms Font. I've done that before too. I've had a strange word I couldn't spell, so I looked for it on-line then just copy and pasted the first one that came up, hehe. It sometimes does some strange things to our diction. LOL! I knew what you meant though and I knew what happened...

<quoted text> You are welcome. More info on "Scotch-Irish" is available through Google. It says that we are a strong minded (stubborn) peoples and somewhat Nomadic always looking for better opportunities and the heritage also includes Daniel Boone, Meriwether Lewis, and Sam Houston. Nearly 200,000 immigrated to America during the great potato famine. I guess we came looking for taters. LOL
my brother traced our ancestors back to the 1600's and found that they came here as peasants and entered the country on the work program, they had to work as servants under the gaurdianship of the wealthy for two years to earn thier citizenship. brother said as he searched, he learned that nobody in our family or clan ever owned any slaves. i said you know Why don't you ? he said; No..Why? i said; because none of them could afford any !!! hehehe

Hello Nope! It's just cold up this way. I've been lucky so far this year and only had to deal w/nasty weather a few times. Although I came uot of Alabama a few nights ago with about a ton of ice on my truck. It was about a quarter inch thick on the tractor.

I only made it back to 1711 when my paternal Scotch-Irish ancestor came to America, I did not pursue his life before that time in Ireland. My maternal side is also Scotch-Irish and Cherokee with very few records and I can't trace back even that far.

Glad you made it safely. I'd hate to drive a rig in an ice storm.

Good Evening BlueMiner. My son was in Pittsburg Tuesday evening, but is near Topeka Kansas a few hours ago. He did not say anything about bad weather, only that he was hungry LOL

Well, you stay safe out there! I have some family up in Ohio and usually if it gets bad they'll call to see how it is down my way. I've not heard from them, so I assumed it wasn't too terrible yet. I don't know where Salem is though, but I've heard of it before. I'll Google it in a few.

Winter has quite a while to stick around yet. Sure as the world, bad weather is lurking... Whether it hits us here or not remains to be seen.

I hope I don't run out of any prescriptions the day of any mass snowstorm like I did a couple of years ago.. These damned insurance companies won't help pay for them if you're a day early, ya know... I had to go almost four days without one of my meds that year. An it was an important medication, at that...

When it snows out where I live, we never see hide nor hair of a snow plow. Not even a salt truck. We're on our own out here, hehe. Not complaining, mind you. But......

My grandmother used part of the ears, tongue, and snout to make "head cheese" which is very tasty.

Believe it or not, my heritage is a mystery, and I can only go back as far as my grandparents, on either side. My maternal grandmother never would discuss her life prior to coming to this country. All she would say is that there were severe limitations on one's freedom, especially freedom to openly worship, and that living conditions were very bad. I must have family ties in Eastern Europe, but no information. Sometimes I think I was just hatched out of an egg.

I don't know if that was what we called "souse", but it was the same parts made like pickle loaf with pimentoes and red peppers. Fairly spicy, but too greasy to suit me. LOL

My dad liked hog brains and scrambled eggs, I just liked to puke. LOL

I can relate to that! Deadlines, weather, traffic, customers, and dispatchers all seem to conspire to make us feel like there is not time to stop and get some food sometimes. In fact sometimes there simply isn't enough time to stop and eat.

Thanks it wasn't so bad. Everything but the roads was glazing over.
