You Never Miss The Water Until The Well Runs Dry
Or you never miss the electricity until the power goes off. The hottest part of the day ours went off and stayed off for four hours. We made a trip to Walmart to buy a few things to cook King Ranch Chicken tomorrow. It was cool in there so we shopped slowly. Haven't made that dish in years. Got the idea from a friend telling me about she and her friend eating what they called King Ranch Chicken at a restaurant. I don't know if she meant she had never heard of it or if it didn't taste as it should. Anyway I'm going to improvise because I can't find my recipe. Power still wasn't on so we made a trip to Whataburger for a Patty Melt. We drug out feet there and sopped up their cool air. When we came home some neighbors were in their yard trying to find some cool air. Their youngest always wants to give us food. He must think old people look hungry. I told him we didn't need anything we just had a Patty Melt. Yesterday when we were struggling with a large box to cut it in pieces to fit it in the garbage can he brought a bag with cold water, cut up apples, and candy. He told me this is a snack for you working so hard. We are so lucky to have good neighbors and their kids. Now we are trying to cool our rooms back off and the food in the fridge, enjoying the TV and computer. When the big power company truck passed by we gave him the thumbs up sign and he signaled back. Thank goodness for men who work on Friday late.
