Savory Stories - THANK YOU ALL!!!

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty One Group # S.0190863

As we come to the end of July and to the end of the July Challenge July Active Rain Challenge - Savory Stories, I wanted to extend a huge thank you to all those who participated. The goal was to either get you to cook, or to get you to a gathering like a picnic or a barbeque and show us about it. Show us where you are cooking – not just stock photos. Show us the events you attended through a selfie or a picture that someone took of you there. So many of you did an amazing job at sharing with us.  Now, my memory may be off, but I believe that the first person to include 2 videos of themselves cooking in one post was Raymond Henson, eXp Realty.  You have to admire going above and beyond like that. I imagine his clients appreciate that he goes above and beyond instead of just seeing how little he can get away with doing. That's the Active Rain spirit I love to see as well. That is a member that gives his all for the betterment of the community.

 

In his honor, I post these videos from other men who used to teach us how to cook.

It was fun to see cooks that taught me so many techniques and inspired me to cook so many years ago. 

 

Thank you for including me in your post and inspiring me to do some video in my post.  We always need someone to gently push us to learn and try more.  Your, Sexy Back Ribs, gave me the idea for my video.  It was a fantastic challenge.  I appreciate you putting it together for us.

 

I really love that there are so many on ActiveRain that are great cooks and so willing to share.  I also appreciate all of the creativity that led to the wonderful recipes for better living.

Morning Rocky.

I haven't seen either one of those two in a long time.  I wonder if they are still kicking, any idea?

Hello Rocky - Cooking Show Classics!  Of course, you could also include a Saturday Night Live(I think)  parody of Julia Child --- a true laugh-out-loud moment.

Good morning Rocky - those cooking shows show the flair.  I was better describing than acting it out.  Thanks for the fun contest.  I really did enjoy it.

It was such a fun challenge, Rocky, and a tasty one. I enjoyed reading all the posts...and now we have a cookbook online or sorts.

Dan Akroyd's Julia Child skit was a classic - it made me laugh all over again as it did many times in the past. And of course she was so entertaining herself on her TV show years ago. I've nto seen her preserved kitchen at the Smithsonian but did get to tour her house (after it was remodeled) in Cambridge MA when it was selling when we lived in the Boston area.
