Wisdom comes with age

When you're 20, you really don't care about what others think of you.

When you're 30, you care a lot about what others think of you.

When you're 40, you discover they don't think of you at all!


yea, I know I'm not old enough to tell this joke, but whatever

Jesus loves you [yes, you] so much, he even died for you so that you will not need to die, but live forever

When you are 40, you probably wouldn't consider the question as to whether anyone thought of you, much less what they thought.

Aww bullshit. You didn't really give a rat about what the old lady thinks either. You might pretend so you don't have to cook sometimes

I just wish I could find one that I could 100% agree with all of the time without all hell breaking loose. I would be a happy man were I to have nothing to do but agree with a woman even when she was wrong.... but not so damn wrong I have to dissent....

You might have that deal bud. i'M JEALOUS.

Yep. 40. Give mama what she wants, grow gray hair and try to fly under the radar. That and trying to get those assholes who you cared what they thought 20 years ago to leave you the hell alone.

Your feet hurt, your back hurts and your zeal has been replaced by the reality that jazz is a good thing. A little wisdom that sometimes doing nothing is better than the alternatives.

31 and going to have to side with njk ...

The only difference is I like to cook too ... but I got 100% of the job. I honestly don't mind. I find it quite relaxing and enjoyable.

In fact, if I were to lose my job tomorrow, I would be torn between hitting the DJ gig full time or going to culinary school.

Seriously. Sometimes those thoughts are downright scary though ... especially when they pertain to my boss(es).

I will be 20 for a long time...

I am so important I feel the need to let it be known like a liberal discovering the internets for the first time. Uh hur hur hur. I also wash myself with a rag on a stick.

That is completely cool. Love is not far from food. Good eats is essential and I like cooking too. Of course, any scrutiny on the preparation of eats falls completely on you. Criticism of female cooking is unhesrd of.

Isn't it nice that your own critique is useful and that it seems to be adaptable without much comment to a gal's cooking.

If I don't have to cook it, it's always perfecto. Say food. I'm there with bells on.

Sometimes I cook. One favorite is Bami, I believe NJK knows what that is.

I can make a big bowl of that, and the next day there's hardly anything left for a lunch. There's only two of us, the kids are on their own.

It seems the kids smell it and flock over to have their share.

You can't deny that there is still a great part of Dutch inside you .

I know that my wife makes this often and with the proper things on the side it's delcicious.

You couldn't deny Dutch preference for Indonesian cooking? Could you? I'm afraid we lost Bemi around these parts with the end of Grandma Kempen.

It was one of the couple things Grandma could make that didn't involve heating a can

keep in mind that we make bami not as they do in Indonesia
we picked it up during the days it the islands were part of our nation.

we serve it the dutch way

if we found ourselves in China the food wouldn't be anything like we take out at our local chinese restaurant.

I'm game for a proper recipe should you have one to offer. Most of the time Grandma cooked to feed a half dozen, large farming men+kids and women, meat, spuds, greens.... It was only rarely that there were few of us around to get fancy. Sunday with Grandma usually involved extreme distortion of her dining room table from the weight of food.

Hence an Oregon colloquialism known as a "board bender". Also a lost custom for Sunday after church and an open house to anyone that was hungry. Thinking about it, I can still remember the maple smell of the dutch sausages which you could smell for a 1/4 mile cooking in the oven made of contributed venison by family hunters. Yum.

Old man Kindel was a little too jealous of his sausage recipe and it's another lost art. Took it with him. You can still buy "Verboort" sausage in the old Hollandtown factory, but it's just not quite right.

The old farmhouse is still out there, mainly falling apart, a cockeyed brick Catholic church (it leans left, I guess they should have got a mason or two from Wisconsin). Other than that Verboort, Oregon remains rather timeless mainly because it isn't much good for anything but farming. It tends to be a little swampy. Might catch your death a' mud

How much Dutch? How much American? I couldn't tell you. Until my generation, the blood was about 100% Dutch. My dad liked a German gal from "the next valley over".

A web search yielded a few results which might be about like Grandma

http://www.recipezaar.com/Bami-Goren...Noodles-110266

Except not with packaged noodle:

Something about like these I think.
