Cajun Corner – Vol.
5, No. 12 – March 31, 2013
Jour!Welcome to Cajun
Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.
This week was pucker week.I had to embroider a 10 inch tall letter G in
fill stitches.That letter curled and
puckered all over the place.It was a
definite fight to the end but I ended up using 5 layers of heavy
stabilizer.That worked except for a few
issues.The sheeting on which the G was
embroidered buckled at the gap between the point of the letter at the top and
the horizontal bar of the letter at the bottom.It was a battle royale for sure.I think we finally have a G that we can use and the G should be stitched
A friend is visiting Pensacola
and we turned last week at Cajun Stitchery into Sesame Street.He would come in the morning and ask, “What
is the letter of the day?”I would
reply, “G.”Or whatever letter I
happened to be embroidering that day.
Every year George and I color Easter eggs.We love doing this.Yesterday morning I read on Yahoo that most
people boil eggs improperly.The article
proceeded to state how an egg should be boiled to eliminate that grey area
around the yoke.The article said that
you start with the eggs in a pot and pour cold water over the eggs.Completely submerge the eggs and do not
overcrowd the eggs.Then you let the
water come to a boil but not boil.At
this point you turn off the stove, cover the pot with a tight fitting lid and
let it sit for 10-11 minutes.Then put
them in cold water or even ice.Voila!Boiled eggs.
I followed the directions precisely and boiled 38
eggs.Two of the eggs cracked and had to
be tossed.George and I decided to eat a
few of the eggs for dinner.We went to
peel the eggs and…uh oh…they were not cooked all the way through.So, I re-boiled the eggs the way I have
always done…boil for 3 minutes, let sit for 30 minutes, and eat.They were fine.It does give me pause to think that I have
trouble boiling eggs.My Mama is
laughing in heaven right now and saying, “Like mother, like daughter.”
Just about every Easter we spend with one of our
friends in Gulf Breeze.This year was no
different.We always bring the Easter
eggs.This year we brought 31 boiled and
beautifully colored eggs.Each year we
hide the eggs in and around her home and the hunt is on for eggs.This year we told our hostess that the egg
with the X on the bottom was raw.Well,
George put an X on about 15 of the eggs.All of them were cooked, of course.We hid the eggs in her front yard as we were going to her door when we
first arrived.We hid more in her house
and then outside in the back yard.
Her sweet little dog was having a wonderful time
finding the Easter eggs and I think ate one or two of them.They were finally collecting eggs from the
dog and putting them where the dog couldn’t get them or throwing the eggs over
the fence in the back yard.They
certainly lost count of the eggs and by the time we left, there were lots of
unfound eggs remaining.It is a shame
that as we age our memories start to fail a bit.I would be glad to tell her where the eggs
are located if I could just remember.
We did have a wonderful time at our friends’ home
for Easter.Luckily for all of us, our
hostess can cook.She cooked standing
ribs with all of the side dishes and dessert.It was absolutely delicious.

I was going to include an
article on the origin of April Fools Day but my research has resulted that no
one really knows the origin.There are
several conjectures but no one really knows.A day of foolishness and pranks is celebrated in Europe, as well as the Americas.Even Snopes says it is undetermined.So, enjoy the day and let something remain a
mystery in life.
