Lance Scranton: Memories of mom

So much has been written about mothers, bordering on the obvious to remind you of their critical importance in our culture. But traditions built up around celebrations are the glue that hold societies together and each one of us has a mom that made a life-affirming decision to carry our burden until we were strong enough to “think” we could do it on our own.

From Pipi's Pasture: Harmony at the Corral

It’s been an even busier-than-usual week here at Pipi’s Pasture. The second of my twin first-calf heifers, the smaller of the two, had her baby. I have been checking her at nights for awhile now, but this week she looked close to calving so I had to be even more watchful. Hats off to ranchers who have to calve out hundreds of first-calf heifers! Having to get up at all hours during the night really drains the energy from one’s body!

Over a Cup of Coffee: Scalloped potatoes

I used to make scalloped potatoes for my husband Lyle and me, using milk. I’ve been thinking about how I made them because the side dish didn’t require many ingredients, and I could make a small dish so we didn’t have a lot of leftovers. Finally, this week I came upon the recipe. Notice that there are some variations, all of which would be delicious.

Janet Sheridan: Those who live in glass houses

My grandchildren believe chips to be one of the USDA recommended food groups for healthy eating; so they strive mightily to eat an adequate amount each day, consuming any greased, salted, crunchy morsel available: fried, baked, seasoned, or stale. Though I‘ve warned them they’re eating Styrofoam peanuts dyed orange, they even eat cheese puffs. I’m appalled by their addiction and aghast when they wash the chips down with gigantic soft drinks and then munch cookies to refresh their palates. But I keep my thoughts to myself because I recently encountered one of my food obsessions at a funeral luncheon. And my loved ones noticed.
