Baloo Knew

The 4 items that brought the bare necessities to life. Could YOU do it?

1. Microwave. That’s right, I do not have and or currently own a microwave. Popcorn on the stove? Ahhmazing. Pizza re-heated in the oven? Even better. One year added onto my life because of lack of radiation? I will take it. Cooking everything on the stove/in the oven is dramatically satisfying and therapeutic.


2. Dishwasher. Ok, ok, I know several of you citizens do not own a dishwasher, but its turned into a karaoke gone dance party for me. A clean freaken’ dish to my liking with Van Morrison substituted for the background dishwasher music? Sweet as tupelo honey I tell ya. My hands sure don’t ever break down and my dishes are always sparkling. No need to wash twice.



3. T.V…..dot. dot. dot. WOAH. I am sure there is some aspect of a shock to those Duck Dynasty gurus out there. I am GULPING, reading, baking, adventuring, exercising, jigging, juking, harmonizing, playing dress up… Need I say more?

4. Electricity. Candle light has made me appreciate our ancestors. Bring on those Yankees.

Ok #4 was a joke, but out of the three which could you not live without?

Leaving you with a GULP of simplicity.

Beets and pudding filled Doughnut’s Emily..

My co-worker’s face looks like he has just put a war-head into his mouth and his body is clenched like he is about to vomit. Beets and Doughnuts make him cringe due to a memory from child-hood that involved a heavy beet diet from Ma’ and jelly filled questionablness. He will not and cannot imagine consuming another.

Mountain Dew and Cottage Cheese w/ Tomatoes does it for me.


Mountain Dew: 13 year’s old, Christmas Eve, At home with Gran, Unable to eat the crab dinner, suffering from “up goes the window in-FLU-Enza.” I can remember the green drink as I chugged it down to replenish my pruned up body. It sat in my stomach. The rest of it is history that I am sure many of you would love me to be spare the chunky details. I will not ever again Do the Dew because the Dew certainly did me.

Cottage Cheese w/ TomatoesHot summer days, 20 years old, Best friend’s recipe to die for, Fredericksburg, Va, Skipping class, Wal-Mart groceries, Broke, and a Bottle of red wine vinegar. Oh how I loved every second of it. I loved every second of it so much that I ate it every day M-F. Cottage Cheese w/ Tomatoes tonight for dinner? HECK NO. The sound and picture of it together makes my abs contract in revolt-ion. I loved until I hated.


Those memories tied with food, either good or bad are simply enjoyable to re-visit. To laugh at another, to shed a tear, to punch a wall, to squirm together because of a food borne memory is a gift.


Grapefruit, Warmed, with Raw Honey OR Brown Suga: 15-16 years old, High-School mornings, Broken toaster oven, Ma’s lovin, Hyundai Elantra, Baby fat, Too early of a wake up call, Abercrombie and Fitch, 953 Tanglewood Road, M still asleep, Dad’s morning car ride discussions. Tempted by the fruit of my mother..Okay kind of weird, BUT it makes me warm inside to recall these memories and also hummin’ a lil’:

“Grapefruit, bathin suit, you chew a little juicy fruit
Wash away the night
Dive in, you guzzle gin, commit a little mortal sin
its good for the soul”

Good for the soul indeed Jimmy.

Leaving you with a moment to find your food-borne memory and my Big Girl Baked Mango Stuffed Grapefruit recipe.

GULP of times passed.
