El, I'm so sorry to hear that. Divorces are hard enough without having to lose your best friend that way.

Sigh.... They were nasty, so I only ate about half of them They're pretty much like any of the over processed snack cakes you find at a convenience store. I opted for cereal this cold rainy morning to go with my coffee. The bagged crullers probably go better with beer than with coffee. (Any hosers out there remember "The Great White North" ? Koo looko koo koo looko koo!)

I think I got over them for now. Not a total loss, the memory of the gas station and the tow truck was _very_ enjoyable.

Breakfast this morning was a lot more hardy than left over cruellers.....I made corn meal mush with butter and molasses! That reminded me of cold mornings getting ready to venture out into the cold to walk to school. Delicious!

Maine Writer, i went to the Seasons Eatings Web site, i like the idea of using conduits to build hoop house, they are ready available and easy to work with. I want to build one and on the web page it show some heavy snow weighed problem.

Here are my questions:

Would the next Hoop house build the same way again.
Why conduit, not white schd 40 PVC.
Are those 2 peices of 10 feet and 1" dia connected by the coupler at the top.
thanks

Don't the "foodies" call that polenta these days and serve it for supper, fried I think?

Or at least that is pretty much what it tasted like to me, the one time I tried it, expecting some sort of gourmet treat. I do NOT like corn meal mush... wasn't impressed with polenta either.

Glad you like it though... I miss my thick cut oats on some of these chilly mornings, but they haven't found their way back into the diet yet.

I weed a three foot circle around them. Tomatoes can rot on the plant before I'll get too close. I seriously think I'd have a panic attack if I got one on me. But still, they're like a really bad traffic accident, I can't help but look.


Picture this: walking behind the house, on a very dark night. You have a flashlight with you but because you are so familiar with where you are going you haven't turned it on. For some strange reason, even though you can't really see anything, you stop dead and feel the need to turn on the light. When you do, you see a huge web about a foot or 18 inches in front of you and sitting in the center, right at face level, is one of those.

Then think about how you would have reacted had you kept walking without turning on the light, and got that thing on your face.

Very much like polenta (and I have some of my mush saved to slice and fry)! Polenta sometimes has some parmesean cheese or red pepper flakes and is usually served in place of pasta or as the starch in a lunch or supper. It usually doesn't stand on its own. Of course a couple of slices of fried spam goes good with fried mush!

I had to laugh, we've been making polenta from cornmeal forever. Grits make the best polenta. It comes out very creamy and smooth.

Yep, you're right, Star.
Polenta is cornmeal boiled in water.
