Ok I'm up early this Saturday morning and I'm doing the laundry.
Isn't it nice to keep the other club members apprised on my domestic
activities?? Her Empress-ness is going to be sorry that she
encouraged me not to be timid about posting. . .
Anyway, my purpose for this message is that I have a terrific recipe
called "Iowa Pork Chops" that I got from Better Homes and Gardens
-- I think). Meredith Publishing, the
parent company, is based in Des Moines, and BH&G magazine is always
coming up with recipes original to Iowa and reflective of Midwestern
cooking. I hate to say it, but it's my favorite magazine. Yes, yes,
I know it should be Cosmopolitan or Marie Claire or something more
chic, given my present city of habitation, but. . .it's not.
Anyway, lemme find the recipe and I'll post it later today. By the
way, girls (or you guys who like to cook), if you're interested in
finding great recipes hailing from the Midwest, take a look at the
website. They have a feature where you can save the ones that you
like the best--kind of like a paperless recipe file--and they also
have a chat room. But beware! These housewives can get awful
catty. One time one lady was talking about a recipe that starts with
a plain yellow cake mix, and this other lady says, "Oh I never use a
recipe that calls for something as common as a cake mix." And the
other lady retorted, "Well, not all of us have time to spend all day
in the kitchen impressing the neighbors with our cooking!"
I left before the cat fight broke out.
Yep, real busy social life here. Belonging to the BH&G online club,
quilting circle, cooking. . .just burning up the joint, I am. I
mean, I could fib and say I was out all night dancing at the
Hippodrome in Manhattan, but. . .at this point, would any of you
