~~ Friday’s Hunt v.3.16 -- "P" is for ...

Friday's Hunt for the week of April 21:  (1) Starts with P; (2) Week's Favorite; and (3) foot/feet

(1). Starts with "P":
"P" is for pills, the pills I take every day.  This in the end of my morning ritual of ten (10) pills between breakfast and lunch.  There are nine pills later on during the day.

Two of the morning's are prescription, one is a full strength aspirin, six are various vitamins and minerals, and three are digestive aids  My dctors and I think that all these pills are helping to keep me alive.

I need to have food with some of those so generally I have saltines and either peanut butter or cottage cheese, low fat or no fat, with my pills.
"P" is for Potato Salad. Mrs. Jim made some for us this week.

 Sometimes Mrs. Jim tries to make Mom's and has just about gotten it perfected.  As far as we know hers was never written down, she just had it perfected and kept it in her head.

Mrs. Jim makes a delicious Potato Salad with her own experimenting as well.  One version has small apple slices in to give it a little crunch.  Always it has onions, sweet pickle relish, hard boiled eggs, and mayo.  I think she might put a little sugar in sometimes as well.

In the picture of my lunch plate you see lots of yellow mustard applied to the top.  My Rule No. 107 is never to mess with the cooks creations very much.  The cook in your favorite restaurant appreciates when you ooh and awe over his or her cooking.  But on the leftovers, Rule No. 107.a allows for a liberal application of mustard on Potato Salad.


(2) Week's Favorite:  This could have been the Potato Salad above, but too much has been going on for that. 

Instead, this Week's Favorite was Easter and the pre-Easter preparations.  My pictures will be fairly self-explaining. [You can click on them to make them a tad bit larger.  My Picasa (free) program is not working well so that will be all the bigger I can make them at this time.]

 
Good Friday evening our daughter Karen and family invited Mrs. Jim and I over for Dinner, aka Supper. Above is the hors d'oeuvre hour yummies. She baked the Gougères (link) making them of Goat Cheese.  The eggs are candy coated chocolate eggs, in the other bowls are pop corn, potato chips, and mixed nuts.  On the tray was crackers and anther homemade cheese spread.

 
Seafood Bouillabaisse was our main dishIt is a French tomato based stew derivation with some vegetables.  Then Karen's for seafood had mussels, shrimp, and whitefish. 

When Mrs. Jim is with Karen and KP we have a 'three generation' gathering.  By the time I took this picture we had all removed our crowns that were inside the crackers.

(Easter Crackers link)  On the Easter Table Crackers (they also make them for Christmas and just plain party table crackers) you have the neighbor on your right take one end and you take the other, in your right hand.  Then your neighbor on your left will offer you one end of his or her cracker.  One command every one pulls.  The thing pops when it gets pulled apart. 
 
At the front of our house we placed the cross you see to the left of the entryway.  The letters are on the backside and the resulting white cross goes out Friday Evening.  Then on Sunday morning the sign is meant to be turned around showing the letters, "He is Risen!"  The smaller letters below say, "He is Risen Indeed!"  I brought the sign in Tuesday morning.

(3) foot/feet:  I have sometimes threatened to have a Pretty Foot contest or an Ugly Foot contest on my blog.  Then I will say that my right foot win the Ugly Foot contest and the right will win the Pretty Foot contest.  I do have several posts about feet or foot situations.  ( Links,  ,  )

Here are pictures of my feet today and one from another day (sideways view).  [You can click on the pictures to make them appear in larger size.]

...as we age 'p'ills seem to be an important 'p'art of life. 'P'otato salad sounds 'p'retty good right about now. Nice to see that you had your family with you for Easter, we did too. I try not to 'p'hotograph me feet, they're not a 'p'retty sight. Have a great week!
 
Darn now I want potato salad! Funny, I never put hard boiled eggs in mine, not sure why?
 
I love potato salad and I make it just like mom used to make. She taught me how. She taught me how to make many things she did. Like Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. What a lovely memory.

I love your seafood main dish. That looks mighty good. I'm sure it was.

Have a fabulous day, Jim. My best to Mrs. Jim. ☺
 
I used to wonder at my mother's pillboxes and how many she had to take, now Papa Bear's looks very similar and I have a few in my own box too. If it makes us feel better and live well longer, good deal, we can live with that!

I smiled at your note about enjoying the cook's food as presented but leftovers allow for a bit more adjustment. Papa Bear likes what I make, but also loves garlic so has to put it on nearly everything he eats! Neither I nor the cats will eat his leftovers! :-) That potato salad looks yummy, food as our mothers made it is always remembered as best!

I am glad you have family there to share holidays with, this looked like a wonderful dinner/supper fare that I know everyone enjoyed. KP will always remember these times together! I like the cross for your lawn too, an important message to share!

Your poor toes look a lot like Papa Bear's, one of his has pins one has had the nail removed, and they are all a bit curled and twisty from wearing shoes too tight/small when he was young. As long as they work to walk on, beauty isn't much important!

Have a great week coming up, we've got a couple cooler days here and I'm loving it!
 
10 pills per day ?? that's a lot ! I just have a powder to inhale for my lungs that's all ! I love potato salad too ! We had a barbecue on Easter in Amsterdam, but had to eat inside ! It was too cold !
 
That's a total of 19 pills per day, Jim! Holy guacamole! That's a lot. You seem to have a well-varied diet so I don't think you really need those vitamins and supplements. My parents take about 4 or 5 pills, one of which is vitamin D, which is recommended at our latitude, especially in winter. Those gougeres look wonderful - what a lovely meal to share. We also have crackers but only at Christmas - we don't celebrate Easter. My feet aren't very pretty but they get me where I need to go, so we all need to appreciate our feet!
 
Looks like an Easter feast. I like the sandals with velcro so they can be made to fit perfectly, no matter what shape the feet are in. Have a great week!
 
I love potato salad! It has to have mustard in it to be good. I love the three-generation photo. Thank you so much for joining in Friday's Hunt!
