Mamma Agata's Tomato Sauce - the taste edit

Twas the night before Christmas, or so sayeth the book, not a creature was stirring, excepting the cook.”   —   Anonymous

(At least most people who do the cooking really enjoy cooking.  I’m spoiled.  I just enjoy the eating.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Living with Open Hands

A luxury resort is a place with tropical plants outside and outstretched palms inside.”   —   Anonymous

(It’s a shame that this is Anonymous, as someone should get credit for this very clever quote.  Again, it took me a while to get this one started.  I knew the “Z” had to be either the “I” or the “A”, but guessing the “O” was “L” helped me see PLACE and PLANTS.  I really like this quote!  Been quite a while since we’ve had an Anonymous!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”   —   Anonymous

(A lovely thought, and it’s very true.  But, most of us kind of get locked into the quasi-negative, self-defeating mindset.  Oh, and don’t forget about laziness and procrastination!  Knock those bad boys out of the way, and you could even achieve those goals and dreams.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”   —   Anonymous

(Tried and true is always very comforting, but you should always be open to trying new things.  Even Brussels sprouts!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

At the timberline where the storms strike with the most fury, the sturdiest trees are found.”   —   Anonymous

(Even with all the THEs, and other E’s, this one took some time to solve.  Neither “timberline”, nor “sturdiest”, come up in quotes very often.  It’s been quite a while since we’ve had an Anonymous too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It’s easy to make a friend.  What’s hard to make is a stranger.”   —   Anonymous

(Yup!  Once you know someone, you know them, and they’re no longer strangers.  Unless – God forbid – you have some form of dementia.  Then you can meet the same person over and over again.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The trouble with using experience as a guide is that the final exam often comes first and then the lesson.”   —   Anonymous

(It’s like the old conundrum of trying to get that first job, where all they seem to want is “experience”.  You have to gauge whether someone seems intelligent enough, and trainable enough, to handle the work, and then help them learn the ropes.  On the job training is a great way to learn.  Less preconceived notions, and you can get them to do the job the way you want.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”   —   Anonymous

(For better, or for worse!  This was a nice easy solve.  Not like today’s Jumble!  I have to get back to that.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Some people have nothing to say, but you have to listen a long time to find out.”   —   Anonymous

(Yep.  Some people just seem to have diarrhea of the mouth.  They’re enamored with the sound of their own voice, and they seem to think that they’re so interesting.  Yeesh.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
