I've got to stop here for a moment. My brother-in-law's grandmother passed away a couple days ago and I can't help but feel deeply for him. It wasn't so long ago, and seems like just a few months, that I was feeling the sorrow of a loved one passing on. This particular lady's name, to almost everyone she knew, was "Memaw". She pretty well raised her grandson and anyone else that came along was taken in under her wing. My sister always told me how grateful she was that Memaw accepted her and loved her just the way she was. All this stuff is rolling around in my head today and I'm just wondering - what would we do without those people in our lives, you know, the ones who believe in us? What would we do without them? Sometimes they give us the strength to stand tall in the midst of humbling trials, sometimes they just unselfishly sit and listen when there has been no one else that would, and sometimes they chew us out and make us rethink our attitudes and actions. Most of them, I think, try to give us their wisdom in the only ways or possible avenues they have available, hoping, simply hoping, that we will hear and understand. Just think about it - these people may have changed our futures, or held us back from making that turn in our lives from which we would maybe never have returned. "Love" has no bounds - it comes in all shapes and sizes, looms far and wide.
I'm getting ready to fix Braised Lemon Pheasant. For our family this, so far, has been the best pheasant recipe we've enjoyed. We tried several recipes and a few were really good but this one is the best thus far. I'll put it on my Recipe Page for you in case one of these days you'd like to try your hand at pheasant. I'm going to fix Curried Jasmine Rice, Green Beans and ice cold canned Tomatoes on the side. We're having Custard Pie again for dessert. My husband chose his poison for dessert and he chose custard pie. It's okay with me. It's easy.
Have a great evening.
