A Question


This is one of the pots from Donna's party. We filled it with ice and put bottles of pop in it. I was told that all soda is pop. I have some family from the southern IL and they say everything is a Coke. So the conversation goes like this, "Would you like a Coke?" "Sure" "What kind?" "A Coke is fine" Eye rolling and loud exhale "Yes, but what kind of coke?" "They have more than one kind of Coke?" "Northerners!"
Anyways, Donna said when she was a kid her mom always cooked beans in a pot just like this. Den said that this is a camping pot. Does anyone know? I just wanted it because I thought it was cute. It was calling to me "Burn something in me!" I'll let you know what I destroy in my new pot. Or is it a kettle?
Thanks for stopping by,

It definitely looks like a camping pot. It has a handle to hang over the fire and notice how the handle is pointed up (to keep it away from the fire).

I like it...it is cute! Make some kind of soup in it...yummy! :)

A.Marie-So I guess Den was right when he said it was a camping pot. Do I have to tell him he was right?

I think it's a pot, but it sure ain't black... my husband would love one like that! He likes to cook BIG.
For the sake of you winning against your hubby... I'll say a kettle... But really - I think a kettle has a spout.

SonyaAnn said...

McVal-I like your thinking! How about a vat?

A.Marie said...

Ummmm....I don't think that your little pot qualifies as a vat! You'll have to tell hubby that he is right! I know...I know...I hate admitting when my hubs is right! LOL

Yes, that is a camping pot - I have one just like it - great for cookin' over a campfire - beans or potato soup. Where did you find it?

Thanks for stopping by....I'm back now.

I'm from western Kentucky, just across the river from s. Illinois. It's all coke. lol. :)

SonyaAnn said...

A.Marie-If I don't say anything, I wouldn't have to say I was wrong. He will never remember. Will that fly? He can be right, I just won't tell him.

SonyaAnn said...

A.Marie-Darn, I just missed it. But thanks for telling me!!

SonyaAnn said...

Nancy-I'm glad that you are back! I missed you.
My MIL found it at the Salvation Army. She found a lot of decoration there and she picked up a few when she was in KY visiting Cindy(her daughter).This was the easiest party I ever threw. She did it all. I told her not to but she kept shopping and said she was having fun. What are you going to do?

SonyaAnn said...

Crystal-Thank you for coming to see me!
It was a shock about it all being coke!

Helene said...

I like the "burn something" comment. I understand all too well. In fact, most times I am not allowed to cook :-)

SonyaAnn said...

Helene-I missed you!! I'll be over in a bit to see you.

Difference between a pot and a kettle, as I understand it, is that a kettle has 3 teeny little legs(about 1/2 an inch long?)protruding from the bottom. Pots in the olden days were not flat but rounded on the bottom(when they were hammered out by hand and not made in a machine mold). So if you were cooking in your hearth(before people had stoves they cooked in their fireplaces)and you needed to set down the 'pot', it would roll over and spill....thus they put legs on the 'pots' so they could be set down when they weren't hanging over the fire. When people cooked outside containers with legs were necessary too. Cooking outside involved sometimes cooking IN the coals(ever see those chuck wagon competitions on the food network?). The legs kept your pot from sitting in the coals directly and gave it just enough height to keep the air circulating and the coals from burning out. Now, that's not saying that this particular pot was used to cook in coals however, as it doesn't look to be cast iron.
More than you ever wanted me to spout off about pots I know, so I'll just stop now.lolol
Enjoy your pot, kettle, whatever....

slugmama-"More than you ever wanted me to spout off about pots I know," So are you saying its a tea pot! I'm more confused than ever. But you should be a teacher. That was very educational but I'm still not telling Den he is anywhere near right.

slugmama said...

Sonya, a kettle doesn't have to have a spout and pour tea. I kettle can be a big pot/cooking container.
And yes, I'd not let Den know he could be anywhere NEAR right!
You just can't let a man go into that neighborhood....and continue to hold the upper hand in the relationship. Next thing ya know and they think they have a brain and stuff and attempt to use it.lolol

slugmama-GMTA!!! I'm so glad you taught me that!
