Waikiki Meatballs Recipe, Obedient Wife Joke...June 01 2005-Cajun Cooking Recipes Newsletter
Hi Y'all,

Welcome everyone!

The rain has finally pretty much stopped for now, still cloudy, but at
least we aren't going to drown yet!

We hope you are having a wonderful week!

My favorite Aunt had surgery yesterday, I am waiting very impatiently
to see how it went, okay Ms. Rdan, let me know soon, or I am sending
bees, bugs, and the cavalry after you!
~~Cookbook of the week!~~

LEAH CHASE: Listen, I Say Like This:

Leah Lange Chase was raised in a small, country town across Lake
Pontchartrain from New Orleans. With the values instilled in her by
devoted parents--hard work, faith and family--she soon grew into a
woman to be reckoned with. In her roles as chef of the most popular
Creole restaurant in New Orleans, nationally respected patron of the
arts, and civic leader, she has influenced the world around her in
important ways. Reading her story makes one think, "If she can do it,
maybe I can too."

After rejecting the usual occupations for respectable Creole girls to
work in a restaurant in the French Quarter, Leah married Edgar "Dooky"
Chase II and began running the kitchen for her mother-in-law. After
her mother-in-law’s death, Leah nurtured the former po’-boy shop and
numbers business into a world-class restaurant. Dooky Chase was one
of a handful of restaurants in the country where African-Americans
could sit down to a nice meal in well-appointed surroundings. The
restaurant was and still is frequented by prominent African-American
actors, athletes, artists, writers, and musicians. It has also always
been a gathering place for local politicians and activists.

Today's joke sent to us by Rdan, thanks so much!

The Obedient Wife

There was a man who had worked all of his life, had
saved all of hismoney, and was a real miser when it came to his money.
Just before hedied, he said to his wife, "When I die, I want you to
take all my moneyand put it in the casket with me. I want to take my
money to the afterlife with me."

And so he got his wife to promise him with all of her
heart that whenhe died, she would put all of the money in the casket
with him.

Well, he died. He was stretched out in the casket, his
wife wassitting there in black, and her friend was sitting
next to her. When they finished the ceremony, just
before the undertakers got ready to close the casket,
the wife said, "Wait just a minute!" She had a box
with her, she came over with the box and put it in the
casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down,
and they rolled it away.

So her friend said, "Girl, I know you weren't fool
enough to put all thatmoney in there with your dead husband."

The loyal wife replied, "Listen, I'm a Christian. I
can't go back on my word. I promised him that I was
going to put that money in that casket with him."

" You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket
with him!!!!!?"...
