I haven't disappeared

I'm just not at the computer as much while my ankle heals. It still burns and swells more when I can't put it up and there's no way at this high table and drafting chair I use in here to do that.

I will return!

Hi, Pris -

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking the time to comment and share your CFS story!

I'm a writer, too (though I lean toward nonfiction and writing poetry seems like a mystical act to me!).

I also noticed in reading your profile that we like a lot of the same movies and books - you might also enjoy my book blog, Book By Book.

Nice to meet you!

Sue

Hello ! I ate some butter beans and and thought about you ! G

Pris said...

I love butterbeans! I miss fresh cornbread, too, not that sweet glop that comes from mixes.

for those that have not heard of a "hoe cake" it is a greasy goodness that came from the fields during slave times. The slaves would take the left over corn batter put it on the end of there hoe and stick it into the fire and greatness was born, anyway ...When I was fresh to FL. I went into a place that screamed loudly"southern food" I was so Jonesing for them i asked the little waitress for "hoe cakes" the look on her face was priceless i was almost asked to leave tooooo fuuunnnnyyy!!Gabby

I wish I could find a real southern restaurant here. I would love fresh fried okra.

Gabriella said...

Well If I ever come over I will make you some. I am the hit in my hood for my Indian and my southern cooking what a combo huh, do you like fried squash ?

Pris said...

I've never had my squash fried. Yellow or butternut? I love Indian food and used to eat it all of the time but can't eat the spice now. I love love their breads. Those are made in special ovens and I doubt they can be duplicated at home....the flat breads with the little ripples from cooking.

By the way, a young woman from Clemson who's doing a revision of an autobiography, along with her prof at Clemson sent me some sample pages from the book written by a African American activist in the early part of the last century. Her father was born one day after the Emancipation Proclamation. At any rate, she describes making hoe cakes, too, and how tasty they were. Apparently , she spent some time on a farm growing up along with my grandmother when grandmother was a child.

Gabriella said...

Too cool, Yes I know all about tandorie ovens and actuly you can duplicate buy using a cheminia i lived in india for 2 years shaved head and all my mother was so proud..lol/. and there is on spice you can eat they use it in there korma sauce its wondrful granny even likes it , its dreamy i will send you some. poories are my favorite of the breads. yes i know my spelling stinks also pumpkin chile i bet you would love,

Pris said...

Remember that I can't eat spicy. I love it and miss it but anything spicy or acidic does me in. Problem I don't want to get into here:-)

Yes, I've read all about the ovens and tossing the bread to the sides where it sticks and bakes. No bread like that! India must've been wonderful.

Take Bromelain! it's an enzyme..i used it after i broke my foot and it's an amazing antiinflammatory, fairly cheap at health food markets.

Pris said...

Thanks for the tip! The foot is better and now I've crashed with a cold. It's just a space of bad health time for me, it seems.
