I went back to Ohio but my pretty countryside had been paved down the middle by a government that had no pride. The farms of Ohio had been replaced by shopping malls and Muzak filled the air from Seneca to Cuyahoga Falls. Hey, ho, where’d you go, Ohio?
To celebrate our Americaness, I am fixing hamburgers and french fries for la_sherazade and myself. Afterwards, she is planning to make apple dumplings.
I am also making one of my specialties, the Corn of Joy and Sorrow. I created this recipe after hearing King Missile in concert.
Saute half a chopped onion and half a chopped bell pepper in 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon olive oil. (I prefer red bell pepper). This is the Sorrow.
Once the onion is translucent, add a can of corn and stir in a teaspoon of powdered ginger. This is the Joy.
Cook over low heat until corn is hot. The ginger, oil and butter should form a glistening sheen around the veggies.
Now, I post lyric for your enlightenment.
( Collapse ) I have many many options and a strong sense that freedom comes within Where I shall never find it. Freedom is lost, Failure is just around the corner and the only thing that Consoles me is the sound of my voice, and the fact that I don’t cut myself shaving As often as I used to But then, I don’t shave as often as I used to.
