The Chick-fil-As That Opened on Sunday

Since the company was founded in 1946, Chick-fil-A restaurants have been closed on Sunday to give employees time off with their families and time to worship if they choose.

This past Sunday, several Chick-fil-A restaurants opened to provide sandwiches to people affected by the tornados near Dallas.

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, …

The Pie Recipe

Here’s the recipe for William’s Thanksgiving Apple Pie.

Make the filing of equal amounts of Stayman Winesap and Pink Lady apples tossed together with Grade B maple syrup (that’s the dark kind with extra solids). Put the filing in a pie shell and add the lattice top made of butcher cut bacon. The bacon will shrink while cooking, so the ends will initially droop over the edge of the pie shell. Bake in a 350 °F oven until the shell and bacon are done. Put a drip pan under the pie to catch drips from the bacon.

Starbucks and Christmas

The latest tempest in a teapot is about coffee or, rather, coffee cups. Some folks are upset that Starbucks is using plain red cups during the holiday season this year.Starbucks_Red_Holiday_Cups_2015


If anyone is really bothered by a plain red cup, I suggest that he do what I do and buy his coffee from a shop that sells good coffee in the first place.

UPDATE—Speaking of coffee cups and Christmas, check out the selection available at The Hogewash Store.
