Although I DO cook (and my Beautiful Wife says "spectacularly", but I would never be so arrogant as to claim that, myself), I didn't cook this time. Instead, I brought some snacks, but more significantly, a loaf of jalapeno corn bread from my favorite bread-baker store in Indianapolis. Wonderful stuff!

Echoing MMario's cry: Waaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!

...but then again, it sounds like people who gather at these Gathers are expected (or, at least, encouraged) to cook something. In that case, all attendees should be cheering over the fact that I was not there so that they did not have to taste my cooking. Even I don't want to taste my cooking.

But I'm very sorry to have missed the fun, the music, the meeting of new friends, and the sound of the mourning doves. :^(

As for Susan's thought that I should organize the next Gather... wish I could, but I don't have internet access at home, so I would have trouble monitoring MudGather threads and email messages, especially the last-minute ones. However, I did notice that Susan at least mentioned a possible future Gather, so I have hope that I might still be able to get up there and meet all you fine folks at long last.

Take care,
Sharon

Susan, just this morning I realized that I couldn't remember packing up the pillow, nor unpacking when I got home.

Neither the pillow (which is a disposable) nor the pillowcase (which is old) is worth bothering to mail. Just keep or throw, whichever suits your mood.

The Asian sauce is a sweet chili sauce from the oriental store, looks to have tiny bits of fruit and peppers in it with a pale golden fruity sort of goo. It's thin enough to pour but thick enough to stick.

I'll look at the label later to see if I'm right. This one was the one they market for poultry and seafood, and there are two more in increasingly dark goo that are for pork and beef. From the oriental grocery, not on regular store shelves.

What I did to the chicken:

so....you take some chicken. (I use boneless breasts when I can get them cheap...like ½ price, but it's just a bit more work to use other parts)

I cut chicken into relatively small chunks, like bite sized, but I 'spose it would work on flat, un-cut boneless breasts. I just think the flavors get distributed better on little chunks, and it's easier for individuals to choose portion sizes.

Anyway, I searched Susan's spice supplies, and found some missing items, as well as some items I don't usually have..(including a bunch of Asian/Indian spices)....I set out a selection, and made some guesses about how much would be needed for 6 large boneless breasts.

I ended up with **about** ¾ tsp of mint, ½ tsp of thyme, ¾ tsp of White pepper, ½ tsp of black pepper, ¾-1 tsp of Paprika, about ¼ tsp of garlic powder, ¾ tsp of parsley , a 'little' salt, and perhaps ¾ tsp of Asian "5 spice mixture...("Ingredients- 'Spice'" ....it smelled ummm...spicy).

[insert- my USUAL spices include rosemary..(I like Rosemary a lot), Mrs. Dash's 'non-offensive' semi-bland mixtures, and don't include mint, white pepper, and Asian spices)

Now, two pans, because I also added some (what WAS in the bottle, Susan?) a tangy Asian condiment sauce to the larger batch). Put 'some' oil in pans and start it heating. (depends on amount of chicken, but this is not a deep-frying recipe, just enough to brown and moisten chicken)

Dump enough flour in a bowl to coat the chicken...Dump spices into flour and mix a bit...dump chicken in bowl, or bag...whatever. Shake or stir spicy flour till chicken is covered.

Layer chicken chunks in pans...(I usually try to have all pieces on bottom of pan, so I don't have to remember which ones have REALLY been browned)..turn and poke until all have begun to brown, but don't try to finish cooking them, or even worry about it...because now it's time to add some Apple juice! (and I 'have' used some other juices...peach, pear..etc, Apple is just easier to find, cheaper usually, and has a flavor that 'plays well with others')...so...stir in apple juice until you have about ¼" of juice in between pieces, more won't hurt, but less might. I did 3 pans full of chicken, 2 lg, 1 sml, with a pint of juice.

Let the juice bubble a minute, then IF you add more flavor, like I did with the bottle of tangy asian sauce, add it now, stir it in, then reduce heat from 7ish to 3ish, cover the pan(s) and let it simmer. The goal, for me, is to have a sort of coating-gravy, but not runny juice. So, simmer more or less time, add a bit more juice..etc...to suit....uncover pans briefly, if necessary. This all takes less time to do than to type...simmering is usually only 5-8 minutes.

Now you have gooey, flavored chicken chunks....they 'can' be eaten as they are, but my usual choice is over rice, and that is why I strive for 'almost' gravy to drizzle over the rice...personal choices on 'gravyness' determined by amount of juice and simmering time.


Yes, there are 5-6 places in all that where YOU could adjust the idea..size of pieces, crisper chicken, type of juice, spices...(see above)...but if you try it, give this a shot..15 years now, and I've about got it!

I wrote a lovely long post yesterday full of reflections and appreciations-- and the power went out while I was editing it just before hitting SUBMIT. I can't seem to make my mind go back there, today.

TODAY I am noticing that there has been a lot of personal after-Gathering communication with participants-- much of it on a closer level than we'd had before the Gathering. This seems to have occurred after each one.

There is so much more that occurred that can't really be described here-- such as the enormous impact on us all, each in our own ways, when Hardi was called out late Saturday evening for a deeply tragic hospital call. I can SAY that happened, but the impact on each of us was mostly silent, wordless, and experienced on the inside.

I can SAY that Bill and I *met*-- but the flavor and content of it are beyond words, if it's anyone's business anyhow. (hi ßill!) I can SAY that Dave is a non-stop entertainer, but I could say that about anyone and it would not capture Dave himself. I can SAY that Susan of DT is a fount of ballads, but that doesn't convey how moved I am when she sings. I can SAY that Dick is a wonderful man among men, but the interplay between him and Hardi is far more complex. I can SAY that Dharmabum lit us up with his guitar playing, but to know how much that meant to me you'd have to know why he's a "found brother." I can SAY that Rita's heart led the Gathering, and if you know her I suppose you might know what I mean, but the way she fit herself to us and was still so much herself... you had to BE there.

And that is true of any Mudcat encounter, I guess-- you have to BE THERE. It's worth the advance planning to travel, and the time to recover in the days afterwards, to discover or rediscover what any given Mudcatter is, and what Mudcat itself is. It's not the threads. It's not the PMs. It's the live connection those textual efforts reflect as well as they can.

A Gathering is to the threads like a symphony is to a busy mechanic's garage.

That's how it was for me.

The thing is, we did that when I was growing up. My mom and dad frequently turned situations into song fragments. So when Bill starts one, I automatically start writing more lines to it and it turns into a mind virus until he sings something else silly (fortunately I don't usually have to wait very long).

BTW the very best person we ever knew for writing ad hoc songs is Tom McHenry of the Boarding Party (Padre). He not only was lightning fast at coming up with them, they were good!

Thanks for the song lists. I know they barely skim the surface. There was a LOT of music!

Funny thing-- when the company goes home there's a lingering effect that is sometimes very strange. For instance, I just got up from my recliner and grabbed the bowl my brekky had been in, to take it out to the kitchen.

Spontaneously, my mind supplied the start of this song:

"Gathering dishes for the dishwasher's tray" to the tune, of course, for "Gathering Flowers for the Master's Bouquet."

Scary! :~)

Well, I'm pretty late getting into this post-Mudgather discussion.

I got back to Indianapolis yesterday at 4:45 (having been held up by the necessity of a nap at a rest stop along the way). Then my Beautiful wife had SOME claim on my time last evening, and I'm just catching up on my computerism.

The weekend was FAR better than I'd dreamed. And in the company of such great people, too! Simpatico squared! I was so pleased to meet and put a face to the names I've known, it seems, forever. And boy, we ate GOOD! (I know, I know, that's not grammatical, but it communicates the sentiment better than "We ate well.") My compliments to the chefs!

Such a wonderful parade of songs. I hope I cause no-one jealousy by saying that I single out Rita's rendition of "Sheath and Knife". As I told several people, it gave me chills up and down my spine. That's not hyperbole, either; it's literal.

SOME of the songs I sang were:
The Lonely Willow Tree
The Swapping Song
Hobo Bill
Eggs and Marrowbone
The Grey Mare
Blow the Man Down
Sweet Little Window
So Long, It's Been Good to Know Ya
Three Jolly Rogues of Lynn
Ratcatcher's Daughter
Peggy Bawn (no aprons thrown over her in this song; it's another song entirely)
Beans, Bacon & Gravy
Billy the Kid
John Thurman
Bird in a Gilded Cage
Zebra Dun
Great American Bum
Frozen Logger
Hi Ro Jerum
Sing Anything
Wanna Get to Heaven
The Nightingale
The Undertaker
Kansas Boys
and on and on and on. Just when I thought I'd run out, someone would sing one that brought another to mind. And of course as soon as I drove away I started thinking of songs that I wished I'd sung.

Susan, I don't need the printouts of those songs. Keep or throw them; makes me no nevermind.

Wow, what a weekend!

One of Hardi's songs was "King Bee," and I'm pretty sure one of the fiddle tunes was "Farewell to Whiskey."

One of Uncle DaveO's songs was one he called the "Starbucks Song"-- I believe the actual title is "She'd Rather Make Coffee Than Love." Others included:

The German Musicaner
I Had a Wife
Bird in a Gilded Cage

The second gospel song Rita mentions above was "How I Got Over."

Hardi and I played (and he sang) "Built for Comfort."

Hardi played a number of fiddle tunes including "Midnight on the Water" and "Ookpik Waltz," and "Ashokan Farewell."

At church, in addition to Jerry Rasmussen's "Fields of Clover," we did.... uh.... can't recall just now.

I led the group in an unaccompanied closing song based on a spiritual, "I'm Packin' Up."   

Rita played and sang a number of wonderful pieces (somebody tickle her silly for calling the zither pieces schmaltzy please), including ballads and one really wonderful song in both English and Italian.

I can't recall Bill's entries by title, except for Bold Fisherman (twinky-doodle-dum). A lot of gospel, a Utah Phillips item, and so many more I just can't even get started on titles.

I believe one of Dharmabum's two was titled "Gasoline Blues."

Well I said I'd try to list some of the songs we sang. There were a LOT and as usual I slept through a lot more -- four hours of the singing on Friday night for starters! But ... right now my mind is almost blank. I can just list a few songs, for now. Maybe I'll get my memory back if I take a nap or something.

Susan Friedman sang (that I remember right now)
Mill o' Tifty's Annie
Lady Jane (Susan, I can't remember the full title.)
Love for Love (that's not the title Susan uses though.) It's one of my favorites of the songs she does.

Dharmabum sang two songs he wrote. They're both real winners. One is about the price of gasoline and the other about the Great Super Bowl Booby Prize.

WYSIWYG sang two gospel songs that I slept through. One was Working on a Building and the other wasn't. The word was that they were great. Bill and I also heard WYSIWYG & Greg rehearsing for a Saturday evening service. One of the songs was Jerry Rassmussen's Fields of Clover. What a beautiful song. The church is lovely. I sat in a chapel in the back and listened to their music. Wow. Great acoustics and Susan's voice and her autoharp playing both sounded "heavenly."

Dick Greenhaus & Uncle Dave O each have huge repertoires and we heard an awful lot of music from them over the weekend. What a privilege IMO. Right now the only title I can remember is Greenhaus singing "Four Prominent Bastards." Great song.

Bill sang "Towser Jenkins," "Mrs. Revoon," "The Twa Corbies" (which was better than I've ever heard him sing it), "Noah," much more.

I played a bunch of nice schmaltzy songs on the zither which made for some good jamming and nice swelling choruses. WYSIWYG has an autoharp stand that made a good zither stand. Bill was just thrilled -- another carpentry project, and another piece of furniture for our crowded house, are in the offing because a zither stand is now high on my list. I sang some ballads, I remember "Sheath & Knife" and Sheila Kaye Adams' version of "The Cruel Mother."

I can't remember the titles of Uncle Dave O's songs even though I remember a lot of the songs. Brain dead I guess. Somebody help here. I have some recorded so will listen later & add to the list. Oh, yes, I do remember one he wrote that has a very traditional feel and is a great song, I guess it's called "The Box the Cherry Came In." You can see how my mind works and which songs I remember, huh?

UNCLE DAVE-O--

The item you were asking me about is labeled as the "Presto Bread Slicing Guide." I Googled that and found that it's sometimes sold on its own and sometimes sold with an electric knife. I found a lot of results when I Googled on that product name, and a lot of them in Ebay listings. Not sure how current the listings were, and at the Presto website I didn't see it at all-- just pressure cookers, etc. Much discussed/reviewed on breadmakers' sites/lists.

Hope you find one!

LOST AND FOUND:

So far, a pair of petite ladies' socks with pink toes and heels. Floating in the dog's water bowl, under my autoharp stand.

I'm sorry if my attempt at humor was misplaced, given Mmario's serious reasons for not attending. :-(

Would have been a good set-up for the joke otherwise.

I'm glad you all had a wonderful gathering; I'll go back to lurking.

This is about the tenth time I've opened the thread this afternoon to try to say what it was like. All I can come up with at the moment is that I'm gobsmacked beyond my wildest dreams, and there's a hole in my heart not because the guests left, but because Mmario wasn't among them this time.

it's not quite dark yet, and we've had 12-14 songs already...a good omen! 2 babnjos, 3 or 4 guitars, 2 autoharps, a zither, a fiddle, assorted whistles, kazoos and nose flutes...

(The dog is mercifly in a hidey-hole back yonder...*grin*)

We decided to be sure to try to quit cleaning by the time the farthest traveler starts out, and we just about made it. For the first time I can recall, I was out of the shower by the time the first arrival splashed into the drive-- Uncle DaveO is here!
