Margie: Edna and I thank all of you who recently participated in asking us questions. We will be posting our answers today and tomorrow.
We had a lot of fun answering all of these. We tried to be as honest as we could.
1. From Karen:
Do either of you have a favorite dessert? If so, may we have the recipe?
Margie: My favorite dessert is one my grandmother made. She had learned the recipe from her mother and taught it to me. It's called a Butter Roll and I don't go by a recipe because I just make it like my grandma did. Some people use milk but I much prefer making it with water.
Here are a few recipes for you to check then you can pick the one that suits you best.
Edna: My favorite dessert is one I make every Thanksgiving, it's a delicious sweet potato pie. Some people say it tastes just like a pumpkin pie, but I think mine is far tastier. This is a good recipe, and I usually like to doctor it up with a little bit of ground cloves and a pinch of ginger. For a richer pie, you can substitute light cream for the evaporated milk.
2. From Patricia:
I would so like to know more about the two of you. Have either of you been married? If not, I'm assuming you both have broken at least a few hearts in your day. Are there any stories you could tell?
Edna: Oh honey, I've got plenty of stories, but none that I should tell. I will tell you that I have been married two times, and have broken many more hearts than that. Does that answer your question, dear?
Margie: I've got plenty of stories I could tell about Edna too! Can you say stalker? As for me, I've only been married once. I prefer to play the field.
3. From Poetic Shutterbug:
It seems like you've both had very interesting lives. Do you ever get bored? And, if so, what do you do to shake things up?
Margie: I never get bored because I always have books on hand and I do love to read. When I take a break from reading I like to push Edna's buttons and watch her go ballistic. She's a riot!
4. From Stephanie B:
Why is it so easy for people to bring themselves to hate others? Has there ever been a time when hatred has solved a societal ill?
Edna: Dear, I think it's because there are so many people who hate themselves, so they just push that hate out on to others. It's a crying shame, but there it is. And I do not believe that hatred has ever solved any societal ill, it just makes them worse. Sadly, love seems to be a harder lesson to teach folks than hate.
