Hello, my name is Auntie Arlene. I will share with you different stories from my life. Some of them are quite amazing. My life has been rich with adventures. I have traveled this road for a very long time. It all began in a little house in the countryside. But the path has taken me to far away places. Will you join me on this journey? You will learn a lot about other people and places around this world. Are you ready? It will be a fun trip. So let's get started. [mp3]

意大利特色菜 Italian Flavors


Farther down the path stood the big old barn with a wagon shed attached, where Grandpa stored the hay wagon and plow in the winter. One time he was fixing the roof and called down to my boyfriend, who was visiting from a town thirty miles away, "You've got to make hay while the sun shines, boy". THAT was rather embarrassing, but we knew what he meant. We dated another four years before we got married.

After a hard day's work in the sun, the horses pulled the hay wagon to the main floor of the barn. During winter, the cows and horses were kept warm in the barn, but when springtime arrived they went outside to pasture. That's when Grandpa cleared their stalls of manure and spread it on the fields as fertilizer. Our noses told us when the animals were let out to pasture. The cows headed straight for the first blades of green in the meadow of wild garlic.

We tasted garlic butter from the churn before it became popular to eat with Italian food. It didn't taste very good on our morning toast and to this day, my sister, Sue, won't eat real butter because she got sick on the garlic butter Grandma shared from the farm. Sue was happy when a butter substitute called OLEO came in a plastic bag. It was white like lard. A tiny capsule of orange powder was broken and we took turns mixing it all together until it looked like a creamy butter. Today, it is packaged in quarter pound sticks, four to a box, and I use OLEO for cooking but still prefer the taste of real butter on my toast in the morning.
