Americans love the story of The Lone Ranger. Riding his white horse, hunting outlaws with his Native American guide and sidekick. Never firing his gun except when absolutely necessary, and never missing when he did.

Did you know almost all those stories are actually true? That there really was a Lone Ranger? Who traveled through Indian Territory finding outlaws and bringing them to justice on a white stallion? With his trusted guide?

His name was Bass Reeves. He successfully captured over 3,000 outlaws. He was a master of disguise, choosing carefully when to surprise and subdue the outlaws he was hunting. He was barred from competitive shooting, because no one else had a chance. Yet he only shot when there was absolutely no other way.

So why is it today is the first time I've ever heard of Bass Reeves?

Because the real Lone Ranger was black. And a former slave.

I often have coffee with a high fat creamer thing, Dana often wants oatmeal.  This is how we make that work

Ok I best my previous two ingredient recipe for something that is just one, and kind of a silly trick, but it is one I really enjoy

I still need to work on converting crockpot recipes.  This one worked but wasn't quite where I wanted it to be

This is an actual letter written when I was probably 22 to my likely 12 year old cousin.  It was never sent.

This is something I am really pretty proud of, it combines a lot of the ideas I have been working on- cooking from frozen, sauces and timing things so they can cook together, it also involves me making something I missed and haven't made in decades

It is a really different thing!  The sugar and flour versions are probably what I would make if I could, but it is neat to have something that hits that kind of note because nothing in my usual food life does.  Which is why I am so happy you can find recipies for it now

If it only has two ingredients, both of which are named in the title, does it still count as a recipe?

Today was our first day back on the baby making train and we are starting with a fake implantation cycle for me.

It was so good to see the doctor and to have things going forward even if it isn't embryo making.
