From the Valley of the Jolly


I’m not sure what vegetable the Jolly Green Giant represents, but ever since I was little he has reminded me of asparagus.


I had some asparagus left from Easter and made this breakfast /brunch bread. Serve with some leftover fried ham and an egg. Don’t forget to scrape the rest of that beet relish from the jar! Ho! Ho! Ho!

    I hope that as good Catholics you are cheering for Xavier.

  4. Mike says:

    Remember that part in the Mass of the Catacumens, “Asperges me, Domine”?

    Every time I went to church I got hungry for asparagus.

    Also, you probably know this, but I’ll repeat it anyway, the Emperor Augustus’s favorite saying was “Quick as boiled asparagus.”

    I really hope you’re cheering for Xavier.

  5. Mike says:

    Listen for yourself!

    THOU shalt sprinkle me with hyssop, O Lord, and I shall be cleansed; Thou shalt wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Ps: Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Thy great mercy. V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost. R. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Ant: Thou shalt sprinkle me with hyssop, O Lord, and I shall be cleansed; Though shalt wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

    Well..once Mickey Rooney and John Stamos aka Uncle Jessie and the Beach Boys put on a show.

  14. Mike says:

    I thought you were calling UCLA the Beach Boys.

    I hate UCLA. Andrew applied to grad school there and they told him no.

    Was Judy Garland in that show? Or was she already pushing daisies?

    I went to the store today and looked all over for white cake with coconut frosting. I couldnt even find a froze Sara Lee one.

    Monica what about collards, boiled with plenty of fatback.

  17. Kit says:

    I don’t think either of those two teams are going to the Final Four.

  18. Jeff says:


    Don’t use the word “collards” anymore. They prefer Dutch-American borekale.

  19. Monica says:
