On a lighter note this week, yippee it’s a short one, must be my shortest post so enjoy it.
I went to visit a friend once and she was roasting chicken, after seasoning the chicken, she then poured some oil on it and put it in the oven, when the chicken had finished roasting, there was a lot of oil left behind in the oven tray so I asked why she added oil or that much oil to the chicken she was roasting, I don’t usually use oil, I cover the chicken for maybe 15 mins with foil and let it roast in own juices and oil, she shrugged and said that’s the way she’d always done it, she’s a close friend so she knew I was not criticizing, just curious.
A preacher was giving an illustration once, I can’t really remember what he was explaining but I remember the story he told, a young wife always cuts both end of her gammon joint before placing it in an oven tray to roast, one day, her husband asked her why she did that, she said, my mother always did it. When the couple went to visit the wife’s mother, the son-in-law went into the kitchen and saw his mother-in-law doing the same thing his wife does with the gammon joint, so he asked her why she did it, her response was my mother always did it. When the couple had the opportunity to visit the girls grandmother, he asked the grandmother the same question, her response was I don’t know why they do it, I did it because my oven tray was not big enough back then
I add onions to meat when boiling but to be honest I’m not sure why, it’s just something my mother did and now I do, so what things do you do that you’re not quite sure why you do it but it’s become an habit? or that you do know why you did it for that matter.
Have a blessed weekend all.
