Dennis, I am no longer a Christian, but I will join you in saying may your God bless and keep your Granny close. It sounds as if the Dear Lady was a super cook.

Mmm, that sounds delicious, Iqdiva, and a great way to cook any root vegetable.

I certainly love my turnips cooked that way, or with sour cream added as in my scalloped turnips.

Uh oh... I'd kinda, sorta, thought about smashing up a batch of those rutabagas real creamy like taters... Of course I've never tried them yet so I may revolt, too!

Darlin', I always thought you were a bit on the odd side; I had no idea, though, that you never had a nose. That explains a lot. But don't worry: we love you anyway.
Anyhow, I don't remember eating them (rutabagas, that is, not noses) until I came home after some eye surgery when I was a kid and my brother turned my plate around so I got some by surprise. I objected loudly, my brother got in trouble, I ate and enjoyed the rutabagas, and all was well. I still like 'em better than turnips, and I really like turnips. Dammit, why'd I have to marry a Yankee? I mean, she was born in Florida, but she's still a Yankee!

TY found out what brothers are for when you're kids. They're supposed to tease you. Why'd you marry a yankee? I don't know. That's one mistake I never made with women.
