  • WHAT???? LOVE his voice.
    And love the whole look.
    I saw this young kid a few months ago….totally old rock n roll. He had wild hair….shirt open and hip huggers on.
    You know he had to be slim and beautiful to pull this look off.

  • For me….voices are so important. And I know it’s a shallow part of me….but I LOVE when a man has a deep unique voice. To me….that’s manly. I know…I know…I hate that I say that…but it is what attracts me. And when a man with a deep voice sings…I am drawn to them like a moth to the light. I have a story about some California Native…[Read more]

  • Hi Friend 🙂

    YES….which is why I love Bon Iver so much. They take you somewhere.

    THIS is such an easy recipe. My household doesn’t eat lamb or goat. My sons prefer simple things. But we have a local steakhouse that serves Lamb Lollipops which I LOVE.

    I am going to copy this recipe to try when my other son comes home in a few weeks. He is the only son who loves new foods.
    And Bison are humongous and beautiful.

    I am sorry for your loss of such a great friend. The way you describe him …makes me feel he most definitely is a wonderful Angel.

  • Sounds so similar to Bon Iver. Beautiful piece.

    Yeah….. I heard the song while driving the other day …don’t know if THIS was the song because I saw the name Oliver Tree. So I wanted to look more into this artist and found a crazy character.

    The video I saw him say that was an interview he did on a PBS show. And I can not find it anywhere at the moment. BUT…..I found this on Youtube which he in a covers the process of relieving the past. Also…please watch more of his videos …I absolutely LOVE Deepok. If you can find his books.

    Bison meat taste so good. It is becoming more and more popular especially since we just had a small meat shortage. Costco was selling ground Bison meat next to the empty Ground Beef section. Costco has been […]

    • I have never eaten a Bison and by the look of them they could probably eat me!

      I like plain meat recipes with plenty of added flavour – usually made with tons of garlic and onion.

      Mince Lamb or Beef Potato Bake:

      1lb of mince Lamb/Beef.
      2 small onions finely chopped.
      Garlic to taste – I use 4-5 finely chopped cloves depending on their size.
      Tin chopped tomatoes.
      6 – 8 potatoes peeled and sliced thinly.
      2 Table spoons tomato puree.
      Salt & pepper.
      Lamb or Beef stock. Use the whole stock cube but reduce the water to half pint.

      Dry fry the mince with the onions and garlic until the meat is browned.
      Add the salt & pepper.
      Add the tomato puree.
      Add the chopped tomatoes.
      Add the stock.

      Reduce the cooking time to half or less (I cook it for about 10 minutes) it will cook thoroughly when transferred to the oven.

      Peel the potatoes and slice them thinly.

      Set the oven to gas mark 6 / 204 C.

      Lightly grease an ovenproof dish and pour the meat mixture into it.
      Cover the meat mixture evenly with the sliced potatoes making a decorative pattern. Lightly brush some oil over them with a sprinkling of salt & pepper.

      Bake in the oven for 30 – 40 minutes or until the potatoes have browned.

      Serve with your choice of vegetables.

      The recipe is a base which can be easily adapted to personal taste. You could also add herbs if you like. A couple of swigs of Worcestershire sauce is also good.

    UNACCEPTABLE!!!!
    Alright…..I can let this slide cause I can see where you’re coming from. Your poor father couldn’t cook. Nothing wrong with using the bacon grease to cook the eggs…he just used the wrong temp. My mother use to poor the bacon grease into a can and she would scoop some out for frying potatoes or she would scoop some into a hot…[Read more]

    Interesting. I was going to say Brown Gravy…but brown gravy has a beef base. We have a cute little UK market down the hill…I will check to see if they have it. Its a condiment it seems. Like our Ketchup or hot sauce.

  • Monica commented on the post, Fried Egg Sandwich 1 week ago

    Egg face 😀 Your version sounds good….but I don’t know about the brown sauce. what is it?
