Good morning everybody, have a great start of the week Very Happy

Today is all about being back in the office while Autumn seems to have kicked in. I started with a rain shower on my way to the office and seeing a beautiful double rainbow at the tower of the Academy building. Smile Changed my shorts this morning for a capri jeans, it's getting chillier already. I just hope I can still go without coat, socks and shoes till October.
PattiT, drinking chicory??. That's something I have never done so far Laughing How do you liquidize chicory?
Better get back to my files, lunch break is over. TTYL.

Good morning Fan and all my other friends.
**Fan, in the States you can get coffee mixed with chicory, I used to drink that when I visited my grandmother. My son tried it when he was in Louisiana I think it is popular there. I heard it started with people trying to make their coffee go further during the depression.
I am with you, I love this time of year, cooler but no coat needed. A double rainbow that had to be amazing to see.

I have a Dr.s appt. tomorrow morning then in the afternoon we are going to my sisters. My BIL had both of his knees operated on, we called to see what kind of steak he likes but my sister wouldn't hear of us bringing food to their house, so I decided maybe they should come to our house but she caught on to why I said that and said, no we don't want you to have to cook. She never cooks and I don't think she understands that I love to cook and wanted to do something nice for Tony (my BIL.) He has helped us out many times over the years and I wanted to do something nice for him. Anyway, I guess we are going to an Italian restaurant that we haven't been to in a while.
I need to get the laundry started, not sure what else besides finishing the windowsills that I will be doing today. I have chicken thighs thawing, I think I might barbecue them, with maybe some rice and a veggie.
Have a good day friends.
Smile

PattiT, I should have written Belgian or French endive, I suppose. Chicory seems to be UK English. The stuff mixed in coffee is called chicory too, its from the Cichorium intybus plant. Sounds like your sis has a profound feeling for self protection Wink , probably scared her hubby will find out about how home cooked food should taste Laughing
I'm gonna go for Danielle's Teriyaki chicken tonight, most likely with noodles Very Happy

I have eaten endive, funny that it is called chicory where you are from. This is part of what makes it so interesting to have you be part of our group. Besides the fact that you are just plain awesome.

Holy cow, how did I get a whole month behind again?!? OOPS! Embarassed Embarassed

Had a family wedding over the weekend. It turned out beautifully, and the service was outdoors - the weather couldn't have been better. They were VERY lucky. I usually hate going to weddings and things of that nature, but even I had a great time. Wink

Fan - Yup, Patti's right about the chicory in New Orleans. They started using it as a filler in coffee during the depression when coffee was at a premium and it stuck. I hated that when I was there - too bitter for me. Thankfully, they had a Dunkin Donuts nearby for me LOL. Where I grew up in Massachusetts, you could pretty much throw a rock in any direction and hit a Dunkin, but there were only two in Louisiana. One was by my office and the other by my apartment. Laughing Shocked Laughing So, what kind of Kofta did you make recently? There are two that I make semi-regularly. One is Porov Kufte, which is basically a meatball stuffed with walnuts and other goodies and boiled in chicken broth. The other is Izmir Kufte, which are usually fried (I bake them sometimes) and simmered in a red sauce.

Ann - How is your eye doing now? Wonder if Willow realized what happened and felt bad about it. Wink

GammaPatti - When you do the roof and pain, etc., be VERY careful. Because of the age of the house, I'm guessing there is probably lead paint? A friend of mine had a contractor screw up when doing their home and lead poisoned her three children. It takes something like 1 teaspoon of lead dust to poison a football field worth of soil. Scary stuff! Kudos to you for stepping up for the baby. That would have been awful to have to turn the baby over to the state, even for a short time. She's very lucky to still have you in her life. Love the Hoosier cabinets you scored. My Dad got one for my sister when she was a kid that she has always used as sort of her art studio.

Carolyn - Should we start calling you Al now since you have no belly button like Alfred Hitchcock?? How is your Dad taking your step-mom going into senior living? It must be a relief but stressful all at the same time. At 93, it's not like he can jump in the car and head over to visit whenever he wants. That's tough.

Patti - Glad to hear Nick has finished his chemo. I think I'm going to go ahead and track down Tiffany and friend her on FB. I keep missing these posts on Debbie until she's already home somehow. You should make spaghetti sauce for the winter with those spare tomatoes. I just finished the last of my freezer stash, so I'll have to make some again soon.

Martha - Had to chuckle about wearing the socks to bed again already. I did that last night myself. It got cold out, but I was determined to leave the windows open.

Tango - Sounds like you and GrammaPatti both had great scores - her with the Hoosier cabinets and you with the laptop. I really need to get in gear and do some research to get myself a replacement for my desktop soon. I'm still using a dinosaur.

Hello to anyone else who pops in. Now that the wedding and all the festivities are over, I'll try to do a better job of keeping up. No promises though. Shocked Rolling Eyes Wink
