Lee White's Department Store

Updated on October 24, 2020

Lee has a degree in philosophy, but when cooking, Lee is more like an experimental scientist than an abstract thinker. Loves new ideas.

One stop shopping

Lee has created many and diverse items worth, in a sense, "purchasing" (accessing and reading). Here they are all gathered under one roof and conveniently organized for efficient shopping. Lee is always creating more (and more), and they, too, will be brought into the store as soon as they are ready to be made available to the public. The idea of the store is that it's one place to go to find everything.

This store is organized into floors. That makes it easy to find things. New items will be added regularly; even new floors will be added from time to time, though it must also be said that Lee pauses in his endeavors from time to time.

Think of Lee White's Department Store this way -- rather than hopping around from one item to another, hop back here each time and find the next thing you want to look at. Clicks can be saved by doing this, and you are less likely to get lost.

A virtual department store, not too different from a real one -- and easier to get to. What with the price of gas these days, you'll save money, too.

Not everything in this section of the 1st Floor is grilled, but most things are. As for the potato, should we have included this instead on the top floor -- Ideas?

Greek salad

Salad with grilled salmon

Salad with prosciutto & artichoke

Most of these, though not all, are luncheon salads, so perhaps we should call this the "Luncheon corner." However, most of these lunches can be readily expanded into dinner plates by the addition of more of the ingredients shown. Then these salads will be just as satisfying as they were as lunches.

1st Floor Food Emporium: Sandwiches/Burgers

Basically, the comments made above about salads apply here also, only more so. Whether these are lunch or dinner depends more on your appetite than on the dish you are preparing as you read along.

Spaghetti - Korean! (a la Kim)


Leftovers - chicken fettuccine

Pasta meat sauce

Sausage tomato pasta

Asian noodle soup

Leftovers - Roast chicken & fettuccine

This, obviously, will be one of the areas on the first floor which will be most rapidly expanded. There is no end to the possibilities here.

Wine taste test

Fried rice easy


Pizza - Quick

Dutch oven

Sourdough bread - available?

The word "Delicacies" here is intended to have a very wide range. Not all of these are even edible, the Dutch oven, for example, or the espresso machine, but they all result in something delicious.

Reading is fundamental, and there is plenty of reading to do up here in Lee White's Department Store book shop. Unlike a physical bookstore, however, the books here do not vanish after a short duration when they are "current." Just click and get. More will be added, as well, in due course.

Top Floor: Thoughts and Ideas

Parting facts

"Parting facts" is a section we include near the end of every item listed above. It is intended to answer a question or two that might occur while reading the page, or to provoke a thought. It can be a bit quixotic, as here:

Department stores, of the sort known today, can apparently be traced back to London in 1796, when Harding, Howell & Co. opened its doors on Pall Mall. In fact, though, the department store movement did not really gather momentum until forty or fifty years later. Harrods dates back to 1834 and is still prospering. Harrods is uniformly described as "upmarket," unlike Selfridges on Oxford Street, which began in 1909 and which was opened by Harry Gordon Selfridge who was born and raised in Ripon, Wisconsin and early found employment at Marshall Field's in Chicago. (Macy's traces to 1843).

Here, in Lee White's Department Store, we have the next stage in these developments -- existing solely on the internet and all the goods are free!
