Cooking 101 with Jackie and Nana

Several months ago I promised to post something about the cooking lesson I gave Jackie, one of my granddaughters, in the summer of 2007. I taught her how to prepare the chicken and rice dish most veteran cooks are familiar with. We invited her family over for dinner that night. She has six brothers and sisters. The table was packed. It was fun. We took pictures of the event which I turned into a photoshow put to music. I got a little goofy with embellishments to the photoshow and that made my music selection of one of Bach's Preludes most appropriate. The musical piece has a silly touch to it.

The photoshow is more enjoyable when viewed with a full screen. So be sure to choose that "full screen" option. Also, if the music is muted, you can easily change it by pressing the sound icon. You sure don't want to miss out on Bach's psychotic accompaniment to this dubious masterpiece of mine.

Hope you like this.


P.S. I am trying to ease back into blogging without it swallowing up too much of my time. Wish me luck.


  1. Wow! Now that is cool. I don't even know how to do that. Looks like fun with food and family. My daughter who is at collega in downtown Chicago asked for a "care package" this weekend. (A freind was going back from here.) And she asked for Julie to send "Chicken and Rice"--her favorite home meal. There was no good way to send it, of course, and she has no place to store it or heat it, but Julie thought it was cute that she asked for it.

    Great picture at the bridge, too. I remember a post about that bridge from a long time ago.

    Take your time. Good to have you back.

  2. Looking at the picture at the top with all that pretty snow on the trees makes me wish for another nice batch of lake effect snow. I can't believe I'm saying that. The temps here have been in the mid-40s. Feels like spring. The ground-cover is melting, but I'm not quite ready for it yet. I want one more walk in a snowy wood.
