Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

Why Case Would Rather Eat Peas And Legumes With A Spoon

At any table, forks do serve a purpose.

But if you look at the big picture, what good is a fork after you have meat for your main course and then cake or pie for dessert? Well, here's what The Case approaches with his dinner selections whenever he is at the table.

Foods must suitable for a fork:

Any meat (some will need assistance from a knife)
Seafood
Green beans
Asparagus
Squash
Tomatoes (sliced)
Round or strip, cooked carrots
Spinach
Quiche
Any casserole
Eggs
Hash brown potatoes
Pickled beets
Lasagna
Calzone
Cornbread dressing
Spaghetti
Lo Mein
Enchiladas

Foods most suitable for a spoon:

Peas (green and black-eyed)
Diced carrots
Corn (obviously off the cob)
Pinto Beans (or any legume)
Macaroni and cheese
Rice (I don't use chopsticks)
Oatmeal
Grits
Pudding
Soup
Chicken with dumplings
Beef stew

And why a spoon, you ask? Because, at the end of the day, it's easier to handle those things which always fall off of a fork. A spoon is simply a collector.

On the bubble:

Mashed potatoes (That's always an either/or, so it's down to whatever I feel like....)
Potato salad
Macaroni salad

And, finally, the one which many might laugh at when viewed at first glance:

Foods I might eat with a fork and knife:

Pizza

Why are you laughing?

If it's too hot or too messy to pick up with my hands, then yes, I'll eat it with a fork and knife.

So, bon appetit! There's a fork, knife, and spoon just waiting for you.
