Reno Nevada – Shameful Reno, Nevada and Their So-Called Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNA)

Intro: Home is where the heart and body are; therefore the Reno ghetto Record Street neighborhood is home to hundreds of people of mixed races and religious views.

 

Fact and Question: The Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNA) have been given 100 grand for the homeless issues. What is this going to be used? I suspect almost nothing will filter down to any homeless people.

 

NIMBY = Not In My Backyard!

NIMBY = Not In My Backyard!

Why did the City of Reno do this? What else is the City of Reno doing, if anything?

 

In my opinion, the City should have given the Resource Center more than $100,000.00.

 

My experiences with the Roman Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada have all – all – been negative. Furthermore, I assert that they have been using the name of Saint Vincent in-vain!

Family Comfort Foods – Cookbook Recommendation

This cookbook has been in the works for decades. As a “latchkey kid” long before the term was popularized, I was preparing meals for myself from age ten or so. I would like to be able to claim that I learned the kitchen basics at my mother’s elbow, but the truth is I found my way reading cookbooks and through trial-and-error.

Confessions of An Oenophile = An American Family Cookbook

When I inherited my mother’s and grandmother’s recipes on index cards, I took it upon myself to reconstruct my family’s kitchen legacy which had previously only been preserved in the hearts and memories of our family and friends.

Thus, a fair amount of contemporary thought and planning has gone into this cookbook, and it has been shaped by my own tastes and interests. For example, it has been my goal to put together a practical family cookbook using wine as an important ingredient in a wide variety of menus. I live in the wine country of northern California, where wine is an important influence in the whole culture. I have therefore taken our old family meals and embellished them accordingly.

I have also tended to focus on “comfort foods” which, though some people accuse this use of food as being inherently unhealthy, can be made increasingly beneficial if only the cook will think about how home-grown produce and local ingredients can be integrated and experiment with them. I therefore have included recipes which use those foods and ingredients that are available, not only to us in California, but in the Midwestern, Southern and the Atlantic states.

We are entering an era in which rising transportation costs and food safety concerns will likely change our ways with food.  These recipes limit the mandatory use of gourmet, exotic, and hard-to-find ingredients. I have, in fact, organized the book according to the seasons of the year when local ingredients are more likely to be “in season.”

I can recall during college that my dear future wife tried baking homemade wheat bread. Too bad she got confused between baking powder and baking soda; we ended up using the loaves as doorstops. Remember to have a sense of humor in the kitchen – no matter what may happen.

Reno, Nevada (February 28, 2015) — Perhaps the Security Czar had money riding on the favored Oklahoma City Thunder Blues, or else he has a chip on his shoulder, may have needs to demonstrate his mettle and power to the club front office, the Sacramento Kings organization, likes to push around self-employed sports writers with disabilities, and want to prove to the youth in attendance (less than 5,000 paid) what a big-man think he is!?!

Whatever the reasons or excuses, the desired fan base in Reno is dwindling despite the recent hiring of future Hall of Fame Coach George Karl.

Tailgate Party Foods and TV Snacks – Blue Cheese Drumsticks et.al.

     Fall foods that warm hungry bellies are hot orders this weekend. Football and the baseball playoffs need great food that will make get-togethers memorable for non-sports fans, too.

     Three of my favorites are Hungarian goulash, German potato salad, and American chicken prepared with blue cheese.

 

The Navy's Blue Angels

     It is also “Fleet Week” along San Francisco Bay this weekend. Picnicking with the flying Blue Angels would also be fun.

     Mom and Grandma would spend countless hours planning menus and cooking for TV time and Notre Dame football tailgate parties.

     I’ll suggest something that is easy to prepare in less than an hour, that does not require much shopping, that can be stored safely for hours, that is easy to clean up, and that will result in many compliments:  Blue Cheese Drumsticks.

  1. First, remove a couple dozen chicken legs from the refrigerator.
  2. Rinse thoroughly and then wash your hands well.
  3. Melt 2/3 cup of butter; take your time over a low stovetop heat.
  4. Place 6 ounces of blue cheese in a saucepan.
  5. Remove a cork from a bottle of white wine.
  6. Pour about a half-cup of wine into the saucepan.
  7. Roll in 2 cups of cracker crumbs (buttery club crackers are my favorite).
  8. Keep the burner on medium-low until the cheese finishes melting.
  9. Lay the drumsticks in a foil-lined baking dish.
  10. Pour the melted cheese sauce over the legs. (Caution: Not your legs but the drumsticks!)
  11. Foil wrap the baking dish.
  12. Bake for about an hour at 375 degrees.

     Take note:

Set a timer by the bar because more cocktails and lager may affect your better sense of time.

You might give yourself a two-minute warning.

     No time is wasted to set the table. Drumsticks require only small plates and no silverware. All the more time to imbibe, converse, and laugh. The blue cheese drumsticks will stay warm wrapped in foil.

     This is something that can be thrown together while serving cocktails.
