    poverty cooking

    I stopped buying liquid milk. I use powdered milk in everything now. There are only two of us so, liquid milk often went unfinished.

    Beverage mixes...

    Replacing part of the sugar with cinnamon is a great idea if you have a diabetic in the house.

    I think I have a chicken pecking eggs

    I used to be married to an alcoholic. I came home one day to a kitchen full of noxious smoke, a pan with a charred mess in it due to the head of the household passing out while waiting for the eggs to boil and the aforementioned head of household waving a towel around wildly. It never occurred to him to open any windows or doors so he was coughing like mad and wiping his tearing eyes. What part of the ambiance was not smoky was colored blue from his language. I was 9 weeks pregnant and the thought of burned egg shell brought back industrial strength nausea. WHEEE!!!

    oil lamps - does the oil really matter?

    Can you use a shoelace?

    Ordinary stocking-up preps

    Try using nylon shoelaces. Also, thread a piece of dental floss and weave it through the lace with a neadle along the length of the lace. It takes a tractor to break that stuff! I sew buttons on coats and denim items with it.

    Ordinary stocking-up preps

    Good point, Boric acid aka Borax is a good prep.

    Let's talk tile

    I replaced the shower surround for a relative 3 years ago. It started leaking again earlier this year. The plumber told me to remove/replace the grout line around the top of the tub/bottom of the surround. The X-BIL is a big old boy. The guy in the tile dept of the hardware is a big old boy, too & advised me to replace the grout with colored caulk. It was faster, easier and it will hold up to a much heavier person than plain old caulk. I should have started with that.
