oanne Lade has been cooking for years and mostly it's sausage confections or steaks on the grill for husband Tim, but recently she has come up with a new recipe for soup.
Lade stopped in this week at the regular meeting of "The Fat Club" held at the KAMR headquarters in the Town of Oneida on a semi weekly basis. Lade along with her red colored barking dust mop arrived at this location with soup in hand for sampling. Lade's overactive K-9 unit was barred from entering the domicile due to a previous altercation with "The Kat" last fall involving a broken toe. See story here. As you know Kat's and dogs do not get along so all dogs were barred from the KAMR headquarters interior.
Lade expected to get reviews from all FC members however only Judy Treml and the Kat were available for comment. I weighed in as well with a charming review. The upshot was that the soup received rave reviews from all those who sampled it, Lade's ego was puffed up by the accolades and commented that she may produce, can, and sell the soup to consumers. Lade plans include attempting to meet with Amy Hanten from Channel 11 for an endorsement. Hanten, a longtime hero of Lade's for her daily cooking show on the station, would be a good asset to have in regard to promotion of her new soup Lade says.
Lade an experienced paralegal working from her home in the insurance field has grown tired of dealing with legal issues regarding health insurance and longs for a job where no thinking is necessary. Lade says: "I want a job like my sisters have where they don't have to think or even have a brain like driving a bus, or a teachers aide, or being in the military. That's why I'm developing my own line of soups beginning with my chicken noodle, then I can sit back and let the cash roll in."
Lade 58, hopes the soup line will take off and be able to support her and her aging husband so the pair can stop working. Tim Lade, Joanne's husband is employed by Lamer's Bus Lines.
