I bet BrendaJ knows that..........where is she anyway.........she needs to get in this game more...........she knows food and bourbon all both!)
I'm sorry Sugar, I'm here.
Your recipe sounds great. I love bay leaves, and Tone's base is the ONLY, ONLY, ONLY!! And yep absolutely...any soup is always better the next day (if there's any left...). And while I can understand your wife's position, I'm witcha about the Pappy's. I'm all about not ever
cooking with a Bourbon that you wouldn't drink straight for fun.
I so apologize for not being around for ahhhwile
. Health has kept me from drinking much Bourbon, an' I'm just selfish enough that I can't hardly stand to talk about it, if I can't drink it...
But, I have been thinkin' about y'all...I swear. About a month ago, Louisville had a pretty good rain. During the storm, my storage shed was damaged by another tenant while she was moving in. Most of my GGrandma's cookbooks were ruined. GGranma Garrett was a huge fan of Cissy Gregg, and had saved her supplements to the Courier-Journal from the 40's & 50's. She had passed Cissy on to me, and I'm embarrassed to admit, when I saw the damage I sobbed like a child. But I'm not really trying to bum anyone out here. It'll be ok, I've been thinking, the way to preserve these recipes is to post them here. So I promise to be around more in 2010.
Hope y'all had a really Merry Christmas, and may the New Year bring many new expressions!
As a Kentuckian, I consider it my civic duty to drink Bourbon, smoke and bet the ponies. Its a tuff job, but someone has to do it...
