Mmmmmcc ‘n’ Cheese

On the cook top across the kitchen, the slightly salted water has come to a rapid boil.  I add a bit of olive oil and pour in the entire 16 oz. box of old-fashioned, plain-Jane elbow macaroni.  I bring the water to a boil and cook the pasta according to package directions – just slightly less to an al-dente stage.  I want  it to be firm because it will continue cooking somewhat when I add the other ingredients for the most comfortable of the comfort foods – macaroni and cheese.  Who doesn’t love it?  After all, this dish does have it all; creaminess as well as toothsomeness, texture, saltiness, the bite of the cheese, and aroma!  Ahh!

Corn and Les

By: Barbara Crady Whitley

July – heat waves shimmering from a black-top highway along a country lane, sweet aromas of honeysuckle and yellow roses, hollyhocks dropping after a summer shower!

From Father to Daddy

By: Barbara Crady Whitley

It has been said that any male can father a child, but it takes a special man to become a daddy.  In the Crady household, there was never any question as to whom my Daddy was: he was the one who would swing me, as a little girl, high on his shoulder when he arrived home from a long day at his sawmill job.  He always smelled like freshly cut wood, never like one would think after long hours outside in the sun.  In the autumn, I remember his raking up big piles of leaves for me and my four brothers to play in.  We thought that doing that was the end result, not-withstanding it was necessary for a tidy yard.
