Greg 'n Keetha Stuff

OK, let's be honest. This is really KEETHA stuff. Sometimes I write about Greg - - - but he has never in his life made one single post of his own. He has occasionally made a comment or two. So - - - come on in and visit with me, Keetha, for a while. I'd love it if you left your foot prints. (Interpretation: COMMENT PLEASE ;-)

There's a Nip in the Air - - -


Turned my Hoosier heart toward:


Chicken and noodles over mashed potatoes. (Courtesy of Bob Evans)

"MASHED POTATOES!?!?" you say?

I say, "You aren't a Hoosier!!!" This is Indiana's STATE food.

I grew up in Michigan and my mom used to make chicken and noodles over mashed potatoes ALL the time! (And she grew up in MI too). They even used to serve it in school twice a month during the winter!

SOOOOOOOOOO Good!

I made beef & noodles and mashed potatoes the other night!! They're a must have in the fall and winter for sure!

Those look pretty good for Bob Evans!! Were they yummy?

They WERE yummy.

I've never put celery in my homemade ones, you can probably see that Bob Evans put it in theirs, but it was really good that way.

OK Paula - - - maybe MI people do it that way too, but I'm just telling ya, a lot of people who DON'T live in the midwest say that when they hear about chicken and noodles over potatoes.

Isn't that a lot of starch?

Of course it's a lot of starch, Char - - - but it's still delicious anyway.

Yummy...I haven't had mashed potatoes for so long. I think I will have to indulge. I love the banana bread at Bob Evans! I am hoping the Colts have a much better game this week. Last week was so sad.

Actually Kathy, the game last week was a very good game (exciting to watch), we played well (until the last 8 minutes or so) - - - we just lost.

I think we'll win Sunday.

Remember - - - It ain't over till the fat linebacker sings, and he ain't singed yet!!!!

I am hungry now! My mom has mentioned that this is just an Indiana thing - she's from Ohio - but she fixes it that way and we love it! Never had it at Bob Evan's though...

I agree with Shannon... I still don't get it either. :-)

PAULA - - - Yep, I do blog at 4 am during the school week. I get up at 4, and TRY to be in my classroom working before 6. I'm not a morning person either - - - but have had to retrain myself to "keep up" in a private school teaching 6 different sciences.

RONDA, you just don't know what you're missing!!!!!

Mmmmmm . . . My mother's pork and noodles, served over mashed potatoes, is my absolute favorite comfort food of all time. Guess it means I'll always be a Hoosier, deep down . . . Here in Columbus, people look at me like I'm crazy when I talk about eating noodles and potatoes together. They say what Char said.

And of course it's a lot of starch. Therein lies the yumminess.

Golly, my mouth's watering just thinking about it.

Honestly, I can do without the chicken or pork or whatever. It's all about the starch. Starch is my favorite food group.

Thanks, Keetha (I think), for getting my cravings going!! (And I was sorry to hear about the Colts.)

Well Joel, I could get along without the meat itself in there (though I do love it, and CHICKEN is my personal favorite meat in this particular dish) but I definitely want the good meat broth flavor with the noodles AND the potatoes!!!

I miss your posts on your Table blog. Soon your ennui will have lasted an entire year.

But hey - - - THANKS for coming back and leaving a comment on my blog!!!

Thanks for the sympathy about the Colts. But like I said - - - - it ain't over till it's over!!!

Hey! I thought the breaded tenderloin was the Indiana state food!

LOL Marcia - - - that very well may be ANOTHER Indiana State food!!!
