So we vowed that each year we would celebrate the day by eating as if we were rulers of the free world! This year marks our third attempt at creating a tasty meal from

So I am reading through you commentaries and laughing out loud (because you tickle my funny bone alot) and my 12 year old son walks by and starts reading over my shoulder and says “wheres the funny??? Just tell me where the funny is and I will skip to that part!” I quickly tell him that since I am a chef I totes know what you mean in most of the recipe translations and that is funny to me. He shakes his head and walks away while saying “I’ll bet its humor that I’ll grow into” haha! anyways, Cheers! You make my day! Heres to a bountiful season!!

I’d wager that there are a very limited number of modern Americans who know how big a hickory nut is. Your version of the soup looks like just the ticket for a dreary late winter day, but instead of sippets of toast, I’d go with a freshly baked loaf of bread and lots of good butter!

I’m sure that eating the soup would make me feel very thrifty, but that last veggie dish (as a person who is fond of vegetables as well as bacon) sounds quite luscious. I haven’t tried the squash as a mash but I think that’s going to be the way I fix them the next time. Maybe sprinkled with bacon. 🙂

The last dish displayed does look appetizing. I must say I admire your courage for even trying some of the pale and bland offerings.


I liked the recipes but your pictures do not match what the recipe says especially that of the soup which says “smashed and strained through a colander. You have large pieces.. And the bottom one with all vegetables…..looks like bacon on the top.
