Big Cedar Bar

A really fun place to be......

Penne with homemade sauce!

A good serving of pasta in a tangy homemade tomato sauce is very good eats, in my book! I used Penne which cooks up fast and added a simple sauce I made from a can of sauce to which I added dried oregano and red wine. The result was pure heaven.

Tee Set and My Belle Ami!

Circa 1969, William Rainey Harper College, Schaumburg, Illinois, clicks at the cafeteria, new buildings, windows, pool tables on the second floor, late day classes, fake chocolate machines, fast times, good times and a life evolved...

Onions reborn!


After buying an onion and using up most of it, I'd often end up with a small piece towards the root end of the bulb. This guy often ended up toward the back of the fridge in a container of some sort where it would languish for a long period of time.

On day, while I was cleaning out my fridge, sure enough there was an onion piece escounched in a container in the back. I noticed that a green shoot had emerged from the center and on impulse, planted it in a small pot of soil. I watered it, placed it on a kitchen window sill and then forgot about it.

A week later, I noticed that the son of a gun was growing like there was no tomorrow. I water it again and moved it outside to catch some direct sun. Then, after about three weeks, viola, I had a batch of mini onions to enjoy!
