The Old Guy … In My Opinion

Old Man

.

Old man sitting alone in the dark.

What was just yesterday,

Now a long distant memory.

Oh, the past lurks behind all of us.

.

In silence, rocking endlessly,

Without direction,

Without purposeful intent,

Without a breath of protest.

.

Old man sitting in the dark,

Watching the parade,

Of unrealized hopes, denied ambitions,

Of dreams that withered and died.

.

The darkness hides so much,

And can be a Master speaking harshly.

But the light of day whispers promised truth,

To an old man sitting alone in the dark.

The Old Guy … Cooking Something Different … #15

Waffles For Lunch Are Special Anytime

Something Different for Lunch!

I thought I would either put an old antique Waffle maker, which was collecting dust on a kitchen shelf, to good use or throw it away should it prove to be … good for nothing. Of course during the dusting off part of the project, I had to have my coffee close at hand.

I made the Pancake/Waffle Batter per the box instructions. I did think the mix was a little thin and planned to thicken it should the first Waffle prove to be lacking in some or all of the qualities generally afforded to Waffles. Turned out the mix was fine and required no adjustments. Note: I do not but don’t discourage putting additional ingredients into my Pancake or Waffle mixtures.

Years ago, I found that the Waffle Maker didn’t time the cooking/done process correctly. With the timer on the cell phone, I could time out an extra two minutes when the red cooking indicator light went out. I have to admit the smell of the cooking Waffles brought back a lot of memories.

Not wanting lunch to be interrupted, the complete batter run is cooked. This insures the Waffle or Waffles for lunch are last and hot off the grill surface.

Done … Success … Lunch is here. Oh if it wasn’t so cold outside there would be dancing in the street celebrating the beauty of the finished Golden Brown Waffles!

Finished Waffles ready to be frozen for future Breakfasts or interesting Lunches. The seven inch Waffles (five count) are a perfect fit for a gallon freezer bag. For ease of future use, they should be frozen individually before being stored in the freezer.

Plated … Sliced Tomatoes and Pork Sausage are added along with Real Butter and Sugar-free Maple Syrup. 

A pleasing lunch that is a little bit different but big on taste.

The Old Guy … In My Opinion

The Lost Manuscripts (or embarrassments) …

I was surprised. Cleaning out the remaining storage bins in the basement, I discovered two unfinished manuscripts. Both of the neatly bound mint condition finds were around one hundred pages in length. Over the years I had forgotten them, the story lines and the considerable investment of time devoted to their creation. Upon closer examination, I found one manuscript needed to be burned, the ashes run over by a truck and the remains, not carried off by the wind immediately buried in an undisclosed grave of my choosing. It was an embarrassment to thumb through to say the least. Thankfully, there is no e-file evidence of its horrid existence, The manuscript documented quite a few of my younger, entergetic and certainly indiscreet years. The other one, I could work with maybe, but only if I could get back in it. To do that means typing it back into the computer one page at a time. A serious investment in late night time usually devoted to writing poetry, blog posts and working up the days photographs. Since it is the Winter Season, I just might poke that hay pile with a long stick and see what runs out the other side …

Fried & Baked Pork Tenderloin W/Mashed Potatoes

The Menu … posted in a conspicuous place which happens to be the stove hood …

To remove a good measure of starch … the potatoes are soaked in salt water overnight …

Slow boiled Potatoes & lightly seasoned Turnip Greens with Jowl Bacon … Slow boiled Potatoes are exceptionally tender …

Before tending to the potatoes, lightly breaded & browned pork tenderloins are placed in a 400 degree oven for twenty minutes ….

Since I have never made mashed potatoes, I watched a few videos and cherry picked the steps that made sense to me and compiled my own diabetic friendly recipe. The first mashing is twice around the bowl … then salt, white pepper (for obvious reasons) and butter are mashed in evenly in another two rounds of the bowl … 

The final step in the mashed potatoes is whisking in milk until the desired consistency is obtained … I like mine with a few lumps … I don’t like soupy or pureed creme of potatoes …

Plated and ready for the table … It is hard to describe how good this meal was … I still have fond memories of the experience.
