That’s great news Barrett!
Definitely good news, Barrett; congrats to her and the entire family!
My daughter completed some kind of master's program in public health at UMinn in Minneapolis this spring, and she's not having any luck so far finding a job in the Twin Cities area, where she thinks she has the most connections. She said the general job market there is quite slow, and the downtown area is a long way from getting back to where it was at the beginning of the year in terms of offices, restaurants, and other businesses being open and fully-staffed.
I'm headed out the door in a few minutes but wanted to take time to tell everyone near the fires in CA, OR, WA to take care and be careful. CA has had some horrific fires over the last few years but I'm amazed at the scope of the fires in OR - Medford, Eugene, Salem, this year. WOW#!!! WA too.
I pray that all those in Washington, Oregon and California stay safe!!
There are dangerous conditions in many areas, and some deaths reported!
The smoke so bad, it is blowing North to Vancouver!!
Stay Safe all you west Coasters!!
Diana Rigg is dead.
Hats off milady.
But Emma Peel is alive.
Whereas Elizabeth Windsor/ Saxe-Coburg is still alive.....possibly immortal
I thought of you as soon as I heard the sad news Jer
I guess I won't be marrying her in this world.
Sad loss to us, but she had a heck of a life.
So sad . . . what a babe!
I wish her Medea had been filmed.
I liked her Mrs. Bradley, too, much better than the books.
Had a nice day off today. While my wife was running 9.11 miles, I put out the flag, and read at home, two Chihuahuas on the couch with me, and a Lab at my feet, drinking strong black coffee. My wife wanted to go to a local auction house that has estate sales. Look at my haul:
Three of those books are hardcover, with the dust sleeve, all in excellent condition. $9.00 total! Then she suggested we eat somewhere. Went to a place nearby just as "happy hour" was starting. Had a chicken fried steak:
Lots of places are using plastic utensils because of you-know-what. A Buck stockman sure comes in handy. Chili con carne is the Texas state dish, and I love my chili (no beans!), but I always thought chicken fried steak should be the state dish. For those of you not from around here, there is no chicken in this dish. It is a beef cutlet, breaded and fried like fried chicken. Great stuff!
Then stopped by a liquor store for provisions:
The best gin. For martinis later. Remembering those we lost 19 years ago, I'll be drinking to freedom. And also a toast to Diana.
Keep Calm and Carry On.
Dang that looks good, there was a place in Waco that served the best chicken fried steak I’ve eaten. It was 20 years ago, the place is closed now I’m sure.
Sounds like a good day, Vince. Did I ever tell you about the one (and only) time I ordered a chicken fried steak at a restaurant here in Minnesota? They served it with shredded cheese on top of the gravy! Needless to say, it’s been a while since I’ve had a good chicken fried steak. (I guess I should just try making it myself, although it’d probably be better for my waistline if I don’t try to master that particular recipe.)
Ha! Never heard of putting cheese on it! Maybe CFS is a Texas thing. Usually the Yankees and Mexicans don't know what it is. It's on the menu at some of the Mexican restaurants around here, but if you order one, the waitress (often from Mexico) will ask "beef or chicken?"
Fortunately, my wife can make it.
I think it’s fairly common to find it outside of Texas (at least in the South). I can think of a couple places back in Arkansas that serve a chicken fried steak even a Texan would approve of.
I have seen plenty of chicken fried steak in Minnesota, but never encountered cheese on it. Never thought of it a a particularly Texas dish, either. It’s not ubiquitous here, but neither is it particularly rare. Earning the approval of a Texan has a low priority here.
Typically Minnesota dishes include Cheerios, Nut Goodie, hot dish, and lutefisk.
