    This is a first for me, making tapioca from scratch. I don’t think I ever made instant, either. The small pearl tapioca we got at the Indian market a few weeks ago but see Bob’s Red Mill has it in the local supermarkets. I used the recipe and it worked nicely.

    It’s not my best presentation but then the meat quality was not what I require and am out of my home made dill pickles. Salde, red kraut, and boiled potatoes will be the sides.

    Seattle Cinnamon Roll Co.

    Yesterday we made a trip to Woodinville, north of Seattle, to take a table cloth to a fine laundry that specializes in antique things. Next door was Seattle Cinnamon Roll Co. Nancy bought two cinnamon rolls and two sticky buns. They were sinfully sweet and have had my calorie quota for a long...

    Two nights ago I made hamburger "steak" onion burgers with a baked russet on the side. I fried the burgers in a Wagner chicken fryer and used WOR on the burger for a blackened look. The gravy is McCormick's gluten free brown gravy. It was excellent. BTW, my mrs ground chuck for the burger with...
