   Jerico posted on Recipes  Pickles. What can you say about pickles? Well they can be delicious. Claussen is my favorite. Someone taught me to make my own using the left over juice. Yum! Not sure which I like better. Does anyone else do this?

   Escaped commieny  My Mom always made "bread and butter" pickles, we enjoyed them. I like crisp, DH likes dill. I don't remember her using left over juice, but I would bet she did (old Depression training )
My Parents were trained to repair,recycle, reuse from the Grands and they passed it on down, I draw the line at pounding used nails back to straight.

   StormCnter  This is response to an old post, but my mother made Dilled Tomatoes with the last of the tiny Porter-type tomatoes before a frost. The tomatoes have to be still green. The result is a great with for a sandwich.

   Jerico posted on Faith  I'm asking for prayers for my cousin Angie who is undergoing chemo at the NIH to kill off her immune system and John, her husband, who is there with her. This is day two and in a few days she'll receive a stem cell transplant. Please pray that they will be comforted during this horrible treatment and that she will be cured by the transplant. It's so hard for him to watch her go through this.

Mei has been a big help to me and her prayers are powerful.

   Jerico  She is through the worst of it God willing. She was able to keep down some coffee this morning and is getting some sleep. Thank you for your prayers. A few more days of chemo then she'll be in a fair fight. I'm sorry EC. I added you to my prayers also.

   Jerico  I'm sorry EC I don't know. She was much more open the first time but after it metastasized she rarely talks about it at all. What little I know is from John letting the cousins/siblings know. The stem cell transplant was created for her from her own cells about a year and a half ago. I hope that your treatment is successful. Where are you receiving your treatment? Angie's doctor is through Barnes Jewish Advanced Medicine. My brother's doctor is there also.

   ALynnMcW  Prayers for Angie and all those who love and care for her. Had stem cell transplant myself in 2008. The chemo side effects were not fun. And longer lasting than I expected. Prayer the best remedy. That said don't try to tough it out. Ask for help to lessen the side effects. I'll check back to see how you are all doing. I will be praying.

Finally, Page? Paige? and Walter admit their love and they're 'Marooned'. It's Gilligan's Island all over again. heh.

   Jerico posted on Faith  I was just wondering if anyone has "given anything up for Lent?" I know that there used to be quite a few Catholic LDOTTERS.

   MeiDei  Old habits are hard to break even when you hit the age of no longer being compelled to give up something for Lent. I've 'given up grains & dairy' for the next two weeks - it's good to be during Lent as I'll be faithful about it; then I get the pleasure of reintroducing one food at a time to isolate any sensitivities - or what is now termed as 'triggers'. I still keep Wed & Fri as meatless days - old habits category.

   StormCnter  Southern Baptist here, so I'm speaking without full knowledge of exactly what faiths or denominations observe Lent. But it's not just Catholics, is it? Don't Episcopalians also participate in Lent?

   Jerico  I think that there is a sort of autonomy in that community but I am Catholic so I haven't experienced it first hand. Lenten sacrifice does not seem to be a major part of the faith but is a good thing to participate in perhaps.

   MeiDei  My mother's BF was what was then termed High Episcopalian - very close to Catholic. Was stranded once in Indiana due to a blizzard, had to stay over an extra day & we went to church, wasn't til the end of service that I found we were in a Lutheran church. My father's mother was Eastern Orthodox which is very similar to Greek Orthodox. I taught CCD Bible Study for over 20 years, one of the good experiences was a dad who informed (warned was his word ) me that his being Jewish his daughters had been taught that as well since his wife was Catholic. He was happily surprised when I immediately volunteered him to take over the class when the Seder was going to be the subject. His wife was very ill & grew incapacitated over time, he faithfully brought the girls to church & participated in all but communion; he did say there was much similarity between his religion & ours. Having friends of many denominations is a blessing when we're all standing on the Word in mutual encouragement & Faithfulness, putting aside that which would divide us - after all we are each a part of the Body of Christ - that's how I see it PTL.

   Jerico  I've been to Eastern Rite Masses and they are very beautiful. On the order of an Orthodox Rite but they accept the primacy of the Pope. And I've been to various other services, Baptist, Presbyterian in Scotland and a couple of others. I've not been to any Jewish service but of course the Church flows from Judaism. I agree that we should look to what binds us together whenever we can. So how did the Seder lesson turn out?

   MeiDei  The Seder lesson went very well, he was patient, explained the why's & what's of each item; almost all the 7th graders were engaged by his gentle yet enthusiastic demeanor; his daughter's place in class improved as misconceptions dissolved.

   Escaped commieny  Hi Mei, my mom taught CCD too. In the summer all the cousins stayed at the 'homestead' and Auntie didn't drive, so we walked to the Greek Catholic church, the kids loved the bread cube soaked in wine instead of our normal dry wafer at the Roman Catholic home church. We were such little twits, but the elders made sure we received the Body Of Christ. DH was a stanch Missouri Synod Lutheran so his uncle said we were a mixed marriage that wouldn't last, that was 47 years ago. He probably rolled over when DH took RCIA to join me in Mass.

   Kono  Apologies for being the annoying nerd on this, MeiDei..... Fasting obligations (Ash Wed. and Good Fri. ) end when we turn 60; going meatless on Fridays does not. And giving up a pleasure during Lent is a discretionary penitential discipline that is not regulated by the Church. The recommendation that we do that discipline isn't age-limited like the law of Fasting. (source: usccb.org )

   MeiDei  Your comments are welcomed Kono. I've found many "laws" / recommendations to be local or regional i.e., a very large city parish in a big/little State vs. a small strictly ethnic parish in a small/big State; that's my experience. Then again I should be more careful using law, custom / habit, tradition &/or medical dispensation properly - the last thing I'd want to do is lead others astray. I'm going to trust you to keep me humble & corrected. I should qualify this post - all my drs. do not wish me to fast (or abstain from meat ) at all as I'm way underweight w/medical issues.

   Jerico posted on Recipes  I saw an earlier post about baking chicken. My new favorite way is to cut out the backbone and break the bone between the breast so that it lays flat. I just put it on a rack and cook it on a cookie sheet or other shallow pay. It cooks really fast though. It is moist and crispy though.

   Jerico  I usually roast it between 425-450 and it takes about 45 min if I remember correctly. I did my last two turkeys this way also. The chicken I cook on a cookie sheet with a rack. If you try it let me know how it goes, ok?

   MeiDei  I have a small turkey in the freezer that is coming out to make room for all the brisket I plan on buying over the course of this week (hopefully the blizzard expected takes a different route ). Will definitely try this method. I used to do something similar with Cornish hens @ 1/2 hen per person; here they're luxury/$pecialty item.

This is a more common recipe. I'd thought that I had invented it ?? But apparently it is a common Eastern European dish called Haluski. Sorry, I was having problems with this and couldn't get the site address to link. You'll have to copy and paste. Darn phone.

   MeiDei  Ah, very much a Balkan States dish. Hungary, Poland, Lithuania, etc., (even Russia ) all have versions of this.
We've always sautéd cabbage in bacon fat, & for some reason I never thought of egg noodles as pasta : ) we cook it separately & combine it with a good chicken soup just before serving, helps keep the broth clear & noodles from over cooking in a reheat.
