Along the Way

Along the Way

My two teenage sons get especially annoyed with how much I pamper my two miniature schnauzers. It’s kind of comical, actually. I have two schnauzers — a boy and a girl — named Kaiser and Charli (short for “Charlotte”). Their fur is mostly black, and they are half-siblings. I know I’m biased, but they are positively adorable, exceptionally smart, and incredibly loyal.

It may say fall on the calendar, but it already feels like Old Man Winter has stopped in for a very long visit. The only reason I like winter the excuse to eat soup. Add a loaf of fresh made bread or cornbread to go along with it, and the kitchen aromas make it that much easier to tolerate the cold!

Hey, Let’s Talk! Hash Brown Casserole

Hey, Let’s Talk!

I’m always intrigued by h o w casseroles combine several different ingredients to make a good easy dish. AND I know that when reading the title of this week’s column you’re probably thinking, “Oh, that’s just great - another casserole.” In my column “Tot Wars” back in THE Mansfield Enterprise issue for the week of 4/22/2019 we talked of two - But give this one a read and see if this recipe doesn’t sound really good and a little different than others I’ve visited with you about.

The old sayi n g “Everything Has A Reason” which is true with a lot of the t o w n s , rivers, bay ous, etc. Most of our places in our parish are named from early settlers, Indian folklore and legend. DeSoto Parish many believed to have been named for Hernando DeSoto the Spanish explorer actually was named for Joseph Marcel DeSoto of Bayou Pierre.

Did You Know?

Some local historians think the Yankees were soundly defeated at the Battle of Mansfield and Pleasant Hill never to be heard of again. Of course the rebels decidedly defeated the Yanks but the destruction and deaths were far from being over. Union General Banks set fire to much of Natchitoches and Campti plus a number of plantation homes as they retreated. The dejected Yankee soldiers took their frustration out on the citizens (mostly women and children) along their retreat path. Homes and livestock were left in shambles. A Union officer declared the arson was disgraceful to the army of a civilized nation.

Hey, Let’s Talk!

I did several of the turkey leftovers recipes that I reported to you and still think that the Turkey Tetrazzini is my favorite although the plain ole turkey sandwich just can’t be beat. What better says ‘Holidays’ than a turkey and swiss sandwich with lots of mayo, a slice of cornbread dressing with cranberry sauce (Whole Berry? Jellied?? YES, Please!) and a good College Football Bowl Game on the tube? Oh Man! Geaux Tigas!!

I have always loved signs. Even as a kid, I was enamored with the old Burma Shave signs. The only time I ever saw one of those was on a family vacation to Wisconsin. The sign was old then, but Mom and Dad encouraged us to keep watching them as we passed by.

Did you ever think of yourself as a writer of historian? Probably not but most of the “History Buffs” are people who enjoy reading things pertaining to the past. Most of the history books were written by people who didn’t actually live history but read and heard history.
