This morning President Bush nominated Deputy Treasury Secretary Sam Bodman as his choice for energy secretary and later on President Bush helped fill care packages with volunteers at an Operation USA Care Package stuffing facility in Fort Belvoir, Virginia
ENJOY YOUR VISIT TO SANITY ISLAND!
Pre-1980, this was simply a formality. Now, however, with the democrats being run by the radicals, they will do anything to destroy a nominee. The hearings are ugly, because the democrats get television time to make all their wild accusations. A nominee must not have anything that will give them ammunition, because they will turn even a minor thing into a full-blown controversy, with the assistance of the major media.
I am sorry for losing Kerik, as I thought he would have been an excellent person to lead Homeland Security. Maybe Guiliani will take it, although he has just started a business and cannot be expected to suddenly abandon it.
Well actually, I was talking about the Italian President, but I didn't know who this one was either, so it works great both ways!
I guess I had passed over this picture too fast last night.
Love that first photo of Dick Cheney.
I have question regarding the sausages what shape are they and how big and are they spicy or herby?
We serve sausages normally with mashed potato and onion gravy in Britain or as a special breakfast with fried tomatoes, fried or scrambled egg, fried bread or toast and possibly baked beans (I do not allow Heinze beans in the house now!!! LOL)
Also I have already asked but what is American custard is it the same as British which is served hot over puddings or fruit?
Our family tradition is to have breakfast on Christmas Eve, the girls will then hang their stockings, we'll read Christmas stories and then they go to bed....in the morning we have orange rolls and milk and open our packages. For dinner we have a ham, spinach salad, scalloped potatoes, vegetables and yeast rolls. I know it is strange to have the breakfast at night, but with hot biscuits and hot cocoa it's comforting and the girls love it.
It's a shame he has to resign when he wasn't in the wrong. I feel sorry for his wife, she probably feels very guilty about it all and feels really low.
The sausage texasflower is referring to is not a shaped sausage, sold in casinings. It is seasoned ground pork and is sold in packages. American cooks either fry it in patties to accompany eggs at breakfast, or crumble it and pan fry it to make sausage gravy.
Hi and welcome from one Cowgirl to another. I'm not a cowgirl copy, I'm JustaCowgirl! LOL.
texasflower, that looks like a great recipe for Sausage Gravy. Having spent a fair amount of time in England back in the day, I can tell you that the British know gravy. And everything else starchy, pretty much. Snugs, I'll bet you can back me up on that.
I'm a fan of starchy foods. They are my downfall rather than sweets. But I can clearly remember after a month of nothing but starches, mostly white, and meat and fish and chips in English pubs and restaurants, I wanted something else in my diet. At that time, the English didn't use nearly as much spice as Southwesterners use in their cooking, so I also found it bland. Good, but bland.
I'll always love Orange Marmalade, though, and Lemon Curd. One of my favorite recipes is bread pudding, which I think is English, too. Maybe I'll post a recipe for that. Simple but oh so good. The secret, like all puddings, is in the sauce.
snugs, I know the feeling of relief at thinking your mom is being well taken care of. I went through that with my mom, and I was so relieved when we found a place where she was comfortable and well taken care of.
Ping to #131. I forgot to include you on that one.
Who knows-we may get some pics of Diddy at the inaugural? He can give a speech on how it would have been better to kick Bush's arse out of there and then give a great example of family values and talent and honor the President and First lady with one of his many fine songs. He can bump and grind and show why he got that White House personal tour being one of our fine national treasures.
I lived, biefly, in Great Falls many years ago. It was lovely, very windy from the Chinooks (sp?).
Always think of "The Girl of the Limberlost" when thinking of Indiana. Our teacher read to us every Friday before school let out. Wasn't the "Hoosier Poet" from Indiana?
Riley wrote a lot of poems, but the most famous is "Little Orphan Annie." Riley was originally from Greenfield, and I believe there is a home there set up as a museum to him.
I LOVE lemon curd and orange marmalde too!
We use ground sausage. It is so good.
I'm not sure about custards though.
Your special breakfast sounds good too.
Thanks for the food education. We also have custard how you describe it, we call that baked custard or egg custard.
The custard that we use for a sauce is bascially corn flower with vanilla flavouring which we add milk and sugar to, bring to the boil and cook for a few minutes.
