"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Do you remember going to Lay's Hardware every fall to buy your school books? I can remember the older Mrs. Lay always sitting there amid the school books for sale. Now we go to the Lay's Building to see old friends, listen to down home country music and flat footin`. You can find any number of old friends there on Friday nights. The place is jumping with people having fun.
