August 22, 2017


Although I didn't "see" the eclipse today, I still wanted to kinda mark the moment of it so.... here is what my Moon app looked like today! It's so wild when it's at 0% because you don't see the Moon at all!.


You know, so many people I know attempted to try and photograph the eclipse today and I didn't even consider it. Instead I went through all the recipes I have including Mom's and Grandma's and nope, did not find the mushroom recipe anywhere. I also couldn't find Jamie's chicken recipe. They were in the same binder and I can not find it anywhere. I did however find that crab spread Mom used to make for parties and the soy sauce chicken I used to love. Thank you for keeping me company during that time. I was really having a hard time making myself do it and hanging out watching a movie together helped a lot.

That is so awesome Shannon! And kind of freaky, love it.

Shannon, what a creative way to mark the day!

Suzie, wow, it's amazing how those recipes bring us right back to a time and place. You LOVED those chicken wings. Have you tried them since you've grown up? I'll send you my favourite chicken recipe :)

Suzie Ridler said...

OMG, did I ever love those chicken wings! I remember having them as a teenager and not liking them anymore which I think Mom was very disappointed about. I am going to see if I can come up with a version I would enjoy today as an adult. Awesome, thanks for the recipe Jamie!

I didn't take a pic of the eclipse either, Suzie! No protective eye gear so I just let it be. Looked grey-ish anytime I looked out the window anyway!

I'm sorry to hear you couldn't find the marinated mushroom recipe, but that crabmeat surprize... I have memories of that! I don't think I got to eat either of them. I remember your favourite chicken Suzie! I can still feel sticky fingers from it. It was so gooey!

I actually never got to have the marinated mushrooms either, just the dressing. Wow, no crab meat surprise ever? Well that's probably a good thing considering what's in it, LOL The crab is by far the healthiest part! Yes, I loved that soy chicken gooeyness too.
