My Alphabe-Thursday -- "E" -- Things in a Row -- Two Questions
Eggs in Cartons, the above picture, show how nutty the grocery pricing is. The upper carton of a dozen we got first at our local Kroger Grocery store the week before last. Then last week the one and a half dozen were priced at $1.00 for the 18 eggs. Someone miscalculated here or else last week the eggs were loss leaders for the week.
The Eggs in Carton picture is also fitting for my Thursday Things in a Row post.
I am not sure they are Elephant Ears as Mrs. Jim says the tops will bloom after the little ones at the bottom are finished. I slightly remember a bright red blooming affair coming from these large leaves.
They are growing in a row. It started with just one plant from a funeral. But now? It may take over the world. First though, it must do service as a Things in a Row picture post.
I think the little tree at the left is an Elephant Ear plant. It is in a neighbor's yard but Adi wanted to rest from her walk on this warm Texas morning.

And now for my Thursday Two Questions: (See Thursday Two Questions by Self Sagacity for more reading. You could also make your own by checking in at this link.)
Last week 's post was about eating with friends and public transportation. The responses were very interesting.
My Two Questions for this week:
1. How much cooking does the man in your family do. Do problems arise?
I like to cook. Mostly what I make is pretty simple like sandwiches. But they always are just a little bit off from the normal. I have been known for my excellent chili and also making pizza from scratch, even the crusts.
2. What kind of plants do you have that you don't know what they are? Does it bother much that you don't know? .
I have a theory about men liking to BBQ. I do not like to BBQ and I don't.
But some men like the praise they get from their food being sooo good. I say that this is woman's way of getting the man to cook.
My guy cooks on the weekend if we re home. No BBQ as we don't have a pit and live in an apartment. He is good with chinese cusine.
P/S A prose is always a welcomed change from the usual verses
I know the common name of a lot of weeds (thats my job) but I don't get into the domestic plants.
My husband does all the grilling, and makes great breakfasts; other than that I'm the main cook.
That photo with your dog is hysterical. That is one honking leaf!
1. I cook twice a year. Thanksgiving and Christmas. Hubby does all the cooking and I do all the cleaning up after. He cooks better than I do and he loves to cook. Works for us beautifully.
2. We have lots of plants that I've not an idea what they are. I don't care as I'm not a yard type of person. I do nothing in the upkeep of our yard/planters.
Have a terrific day. :)
My DH doesn't do much cooking. It's not that he can't, but more so he doesn't have time. I love to cook and he loves to eat what I cook, so it works out well.
I'm certain there are plants in my yard or in nature I do not know what they are, but I stopped worrying about not knowing what everything is a long time ago.
As for plants, about 98% of what grows in our yard (wild mountainside) is unnamed (because I don't know its names). :)
Rod can make a sandwich, and open a can of soup, but the only thing he cooks is popcorn!
I used to have elephant ears when I lived in Atlanta. I know exactly what plants are in my yard!!
1. My husband doesn't cook. Sad. He has no idea how romantic it would/could be.
2. I do have a few plants that I have no idea what they are for, but I hope they aren't poisonous :)
Happy Thursday to you.
Nice rows...I remember our summer lunch when I was young was tomato/egg sandwich. When we were all working outside it made the perfect easy lunch and we always had the makings.
Thanks for looking at my Rows. I had the staple those calves to one spot...kidding. You should have seen the misses.
I seem to be getting on better with Blogger now and
so that is good. I sure do remember bringing presents to my kids. Not just for birthdays or Christmas.
Good on you still having the Betty Crocker cookbook.
I hope you got on well with your orphopedic surgeon.
You have to stop getting the medical ppl swearing at you. Take good care, my friend, Cheers, Merle.
Your plants are Canna Lilies.
Very nice grouping of them too.
I really enjoy a nice egg sandwich. Yours looks good.
Now for your questions:
1. My daughter and I do most of the cooking and when My husband cooks, he cooks on the grill. No problems arise, until he cooks hot dogs. He likes them crispy.
2. As for the plants, you may have guessed by my blog already, that I know every plant in my yard, including the weeds ;)
The elephant ears look great! I've never grown them. Perhaps I will someday, for they're such fun plants.
The man in this family thinks cook is a 4-letter word. Kidding aside, he does do a bit of it here and there.
I do have plants whose names I don't know. Would I like to know? sure. Does it bother me not knowing? no.
That's one decent-looking sandwich!
I'm afraid I don't cook, but give me a pen and paper and I can cook up some magical poetry (smile). As a romantic, I love to be surrounded by flowers, but half the time I have no idea what they're called...doesn't matter to me...they're all beautiful. Thanks for sharing & visiting. See you for letter "F"!
Emotions Of Poetry
Yeah, but the big question is...do you clean up?
My husband likes to cook, but man...the kitchen doesn't like him when he's done!
This sounds really delicious, Jim. I grew up on egg sandwiches...although it was usually on my Grandmothers homemade white bread with some thick, farm-cured bacon.
Thanks for sharing this excellent and entertaining link with us!
