The Hood Pioneer

So I’m trying to make all my foods at home and stray away from processed foods.

Since I’m now a homemaker, and focusing on school I will make the most of my husband’s income and keep us with money and low bills. Luckily I have money coming in, but I want to be savvy and start saving again.

So my mother got me addicted to The Pioneer Woman on the food network. If you haven’t watched her, please do so. You will never cook the same again. So I’m going to give it a try. I cook very well, just check out my husband’s mid section lol, and in not thick from McDonald’s lol.

So yesterday I decided I’m going to spend my check on groceries. I ordered meat, 25 pounds of: Scrapple, various breakfast sausages, ham, chicken legs, quarters, breast, thighs, ribs, ground beef and steak; 8 pound of seafood, 5lb of frozen fries, and over a hundred bucks on staples like rice, instant mashed potatoes, peppers, fruit, vegetables, canned beans, potatoes, yams, and baking supplies. And of course I have to by the chips for my husband’s lunch, the drinks and his kool-aid lol.

So the meats came from Girards Meat Market on 47 and Girard Ave. Now my order was delivered six hours late, because a driver called out at the last minute. So you know he got an ear full. It is a Muslim store and I will always by meats from there. Reason being, my grandfather is Jewish and raised us on eating Kosher. The meat is just fresh and always ground in store. That’s one thing I got from granddaddy is to always buy my meats Kosher. He said I don’t give a damn about your religious preference just by Kosher. So grandma did, ma does and I do.  So when I got my order I loved it. Fresh ground meat. Reminds me of my granddaddy’s restaurant he had in DC on K st, Sunset Diner. I miss that spot.

Any way I know I’m about to get my cook on and be Shayla Crocker up in this bitch lol. Think I spelled it right. I’m not checking either lol.

So I’m going to go through my cook books, food magazines, and my vegan books to see what I’m going to be fixing. I do want to make some banana bread and a pound cake for sure. Going to be making my own taco spice, hot sauce, and bbq rubs. I love dry bbq. That wet shit pisses me off lol. And I have a crock pot, yeah that baby will be used when I make those short beef ribs for my husband. The Carnivore lol.

So trust and believe I will update you and share ALL.

History List

The post couple of days I have gotten out of the house and went down to the water front. I got my camera and went to work snapping pictures of the board, ferrys, and military watercraft there.

It was beautiful. To see the waves breaking, feel the breeze of the water, smell the salt in the air. Just very peaceful.

Now Penn’s Landing is always crossed with concerts and free movies going on during the summer, so I was lucky I caught them on a down day. A few feet from the landing was where Tunn’ s Tavern did. For those of you who don’t know it was the birth place of the Marine Corp. I know it, because my husband is a Marine (well he’s out now, but once a Marine always a Marine). It’s upsetting because they tie it down and left a plaque, and erected a park for Irish immigrants. Master of fact all the places where the military one was, was torn down to make way for Irish. Making me wonder what the hell Philly was really going back there and to find more of their history.

There is also a statue of a man who helped establish the banking world. I’m like great like that is something to be proud of. Money is the down fall of humanity, and the more we “need” it, the more we lose ourselves. Money is the great evil of all. Without you can’t afford good, but even the seeds to grow out the soil to plant it in. With money you still aren’t happy but always want more, more, more. With enough money you can be satisfied, but if there even such a world that exists like that.

Walking around the historic district in Philly, I just got really upset. The founding fathers of the this country were basically against the country is now. Yet out so call leaders always want to point out that this is what the country is supposed to be. Yeah right.

Pretty sure Ben would be pissed, seeing what the hell this country has shown to itself. Our more importantly what we have allowed to happened.

If we don’t start fighting for our rights, we will ALL be in slavery. No race excluded.
