Hemingway on the fridge

Fridge

Refrigerator, August 2013

I’ve thought about this Hemingway sentence for years: “On the smoking skillet he poured smoothly the buckwheat batter.”

The goal was visual, I think.  All the more reason to like “Big Two-Hearted River.” Canned spaghetti and beans soon to celebrate. (I think well-read brother Pat tried it before I did).

“He opened and emptied a can of pork and beans and a can of spaghetti into the frying pan.”

“I’ve got a right to eat this kind of stuff, if I’m willing to carry it,” Nick said.
