Longing for autumn to come

Posted on Mon, Aug 13, 2012 at 1:09 PM

I just love to cook homemade meals. Meat, potatoes, baby peas, baby carrots, sweet potatoes and squash, dripping in homemade gravy. I cannot cook homemade meals in my house this summer because this summer has been extremely humid. If my kitchen gets too hot then my fridge stops working. So you can say that my bitch is that the extreme hot and humid summer is keeping me from what I like to do best, cooking a delicious homemade meal in my house. It is not the same when you go out to a restaurant for a homemade meal, the quality and flavour is not there because the food is prepared in large quantities which normally takes the full flavour out of the meal itself, not to mention that it would cost your family almost a hundred smackeroos for a homemade meal. I am not fussy over fast food joints but that is my opinion. I have about 10 fat chickens, five plump and juicy butterball turkeys, three standing rib roasts, about a dozen pork chops, two hams and two pork roasts in my deep freezer that I had bought over the past six months and I cannot cook them until it gets cooler. I was so mad this Sunday because I really was drooling for a homecooked meal. I was going to take my kitchen stove out on the deck but the plug would not reach. By the time you peel all the potatoes, the carrots, the squash, the sweet potatoes and make homemade potatoe dressing, the sweat is just pouring off of your forehead, you feel like jumping into a pool of ice. Then when you are ready to serve the meal then you are just too exhausted to do it. All I had the ambition to do was to eat my homemade mile high meringue butterscotch pie. I wish that if I had central air conditioning in my home then I would have nothing to beef about when it comes to cooking my homemade meals. Have a good one everybody and happy eating. —Fresh Sweet Rolls Dripping in Homemade Turkey Gravy
