Today’s Recipe and Location: Chicken Broccolini with Mustard Sauce
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog
Yeah for mustard sauce! I love Ree’s sauces so much. She has ones that are spicy or sweet, and creamy or rich. The Broccolini part is not for me, but I think I would love the sauce and the chicken. Yum ! Just a side note – what the heck does the word broccolini mean???? Do you know?? Don’t pretend if you don’t have a clue. Come on – I cant be the only one who has never seen that word. Am I???
I was watching one of those “solve the murder” shows when a portion talked about a killing in Sycamore, Illinois. This happened when Sycamore was a small town. A man abducted a little girl. Here is the link about the story. Mom - did Uncle Gene live in Sycamore in 1957?
The job had I held for two to three years prior to moving to Florida, was at Grimms Pharmacy. I worked in the pharmacy and the cosmetics counter most of the time. I loved working at this store, because like the Andersons, this was a job where I had many friends.
Nancy Anfinsen, Henry Funk and his brother-in-law, Paul were the pharmacists. Annie Matthys worked the front register and greeted each and every person who entered the store. She was always happy and friendly and I loved her dearly. I attended school with her daughter Sue.
Verneda Walsh was in charge of the Hallmark section. She put a lot of pride in her department. I loved working with Verneda and became a friend of her son David. Carol Vial, Mary Birkett, Phyllis Brown and I all worked in the pharmacy together. Mary Birkett was the mother of a childhood friend named Kathy. I recently heard that Mary passed away. The world is a little bit sadder without Mary.
Bunny and Dar Regelbrugge, as well as Phyllis Brown, ran the gift store next door. Bunny also worked in cosmetics. They were a lot of fun. Bunny’s grandson was in the classroom next door to mine last year. The world is a small place.
Austa was the Queen of cosmetics. She was the full-time employee and I learned a lot from her. She was very good to me.
Rudy worked in stockroom and was basically a jack-of-all-trades. I can’t remember his wife’s name but she worked in cards with Verneda.
I am truly shocked that I remembered all of these people after all of these years, but I just focused on it one night. All of these people made an impact on my life and etched ideas in my memory. I loved them all.
