Friday’s Hunt v 1.10 -- "J" is for ...
(1) Starts with "J" will be all the Jams and Jellies in my fridge. It could have just as well been Jim but I really don't like to post my own picture, not even when it's a selfie (link).
You may be liking some of these. Strawberry is our old faithful standby. Fickle, right now I am liking best the Downton Abbey Plum jam, a leftover from Christmas that Mrs. Jim picked up in their After Christmas Sale.
This a patch of it, the plum jam on my plate, is for the biscuits here on one of her famous three-minute-in-preparation breakfasts. The eggs are one-minute microwave jobs, she then heated the leftover biscuits that Jenna, our younger married granddaughter sent us home with after watching the Super Bowl at their home. Grits are instant, add very hot water. Coffee was the last, it was left over from our first breakfast, half a granola bar and coffee.
(2) Week's Favorite is Mom's Egg Scale. When I was growing up I
lived on a farm. We grew crops, corn and oats, and feed the harvest to animals from which we sold their produce, eggs and cream, or the animals themselves, cattle, hogs, and chickens.
The chicken end was pretty much Mom's, the feeding and growing and the care of the eggs that the hens would lay. Saturday night found her cleaning the eggs that were produced for the week. Often I would 'help' her as it was a good time to have Mom just for myself.
Mom was a city girl when she married my dad. Her farm duties also were to pretty well take care of the very large vegetable garden we had. She would have a row or two of flowers also. My sister Lois and I liked to help her there as we could eat the fresh vegetables we picked or pulled out of the ground, carrots, radishes, tomatoes, melons, and strawberries.
(4) another lagniappe poem for you. It is These Feet which I posted last week for my Tuesday Poem on my other blog, Jim's Little Photo and Poem Place (link).

These Feet is very nice and the Keurig is great for a quick coffee, isn't it?
