And the least expensive! You should have just skipped the kids and gotten a dog.

Still single, can't imagine why.

It was kind of something new with chicken thighs but I was missing one ingredient but I don't think it would have been great even with it. Not a keeper.

When it comes to chicken thighs, simple is best.

Need to find the top of my desk again. Amazing how fast it disappears.

yeah, like the dining room table. If I'm not careful, we end up with a narrow strip down the middle for our plates.

If you don't want to accumulate more stuff than you have room for, never move to a larger place.

I usually prefer to cook by myself - with others around outside of my space.

In this apartment that is the only option - small kitchen doesn't begin to describe it!

We have a kitchen 'cause it came with the house, hardly use it 'tho we both like to cook.

In the end only kindness matters

It gets you out of cooking for a crowd! I have a one person kitchen too.
Way bigger than our apt kitchen, but not much for a house.
I don't understand the houses built after WWII.
Every meal came from home. You brought lunch from home at work and school. No eating out at all. Somehow all the houses built in the late 40's and 50's had small, poorly planned kitchens.

I remember when I was growing up we ate out maybe once or twice a year.

If that. And that was before fast food places. Even when our kids were growing up, we hardly ever ate out. Maybe McD's or the like once a month. Maybe. Just couldn't afford it.

But I've found since the kids left and money's not quite as tight so that I don't HAVE to cook seven nights a week, I enjoy it a lot more, enjoy trying new recipes.

We, too, rarely ate out. There was a place not far from us that sold five burgers (bun, meat patty, pickle, mustard, catsup) and a gallon of cola for $5.00. It was high life time when we went there.


edit: This was in '62 or '63.

We went to the House of Wong for the adult birthdays. So, parents and grandparents.
4 times a year.
I think in the 50's it was even less.
Maybe once ever 6 weeks or so in the late 60's. Always with other people. Never just the immediate family.

Fast food....maybe, if we were lucky my parents and aunt and uncle would spring for a 25 cent burger. No fries.

Never, ever, pay for a drink! Water only!

My mom even fried chicken and packed a meal when we went to visit relaties in NC. Only stops were for gas. If you had to go in between fill-ups, my dad pulled over to the side of the road, griping all the way.
