Meet more of the Idaho residents we profiled in the "Idahoan Project: Finding Common Ground." Our photographers asked 55 people what it means to them to be an #Idahoan . Here are some of their answers:
Photo 1, by Darin Oswald: Morgan Wilde, from McCammon, is professional bareback rider. He rode at Caldwell Night Rodeo in the past. When Wilde thinks about what it means to be an Idahoan, he thinks of hard work. “I was up there stretching (before the rodeo) and looking across the crowd, and I was thinking everybody here has worked to be here. Whether it be the contestants, the spectator, the announcers — (they) are here working; these people have all worked.
“And as I was driving here, I passed a lot of tractors out harvesting right now and all of them guys are working. There’s not any lack of hard work in Idaho.”
Photo 2, by Katherine Jones: Kaitlin Brooks, 10, and her sister, Jessie.“I know what it’s like to be an Idahoan — it’s like a place you never want to leave,” Kaitlin said. “It’s beautiful here. It’s like a poem. It’s like heaven.”
In Idaho, adventures await her, like hiking and swimming and canoeing, trying new food and visiting Shoshone Falls and Lucky Peak, the Discovery Center and Stanley.
And Idaho is also someplace special for special reasons.
“I was diagnosed with autism when I was a baby. I couldn’t speak until I was 4 1/2 years old,” she said. “And today I am still me. ... Today, I feel that I am sensitive — and today, I can be me.”
Photo 3, by Katherine Jones: Cole Moline moved to Boise from Seattle after doing internet research. “Once I got here, I knew I was right,” he said. “It’s been the best two months I’ve had in 20 years.”
So two months? And you’re an Idahoan? “Yeah, I’m here,” he said. “You can’t get rid of me. I came here for a reason: I just wanted a better life, I wanted to be happier, yeah. I’m an Idahoan. I don’t plan on leaving.” #idaho#boise#caldwell#rodeo#downtownboise
So, I had some chicken in the freezer and wanted to use it somehow. Didn't want to just fry it so what could I do?... Then suddenly I felt like doing Cordon Bleu 🤤
I'm not good at cooking so I checked a couple of YouTube videos. Looking at the ingredients, well... I was missing some of them, but didn't want to go out so I decided to use whatever I had.
🐔Chicken: I had it already cut in small pieces so instead of rolling them I made some type of chicken wrapping (more like a sandwich)
For the inside I used mustard and some togarashi (Japanese chili powder).
🥣Flour: I had some but a week before I gave the bag to my sister because she bakes desserts so I didn't have any at that time... But I had some mashed potato powder 🥔😉✌️
🍞Panko/bread crumbs: I had some Yuca chips that I wasn't going to eat because they were too spicy and also some Pizza flavored potato chips. I thought, "why not?" And started smashing them 😂🤛 and because it was seasoned already I didn't use any salt or pepper.
🧀🥩 I had peppercorn black forest ham (or something like that) and provolone cheese for the filling.
Somehow it worked out better than expected... I actually was happy and enjoyed the experience and the food 😅
