  2. When I was a little girl, Mrs. Robinson used to make her son and me a perfect red-eye gravy, using coffee, and sometimes it made that perfect rusty-red circle too. I stood in awe of her cooking. I have never made the red circle.
  3. Ever! But if he does it once, he wants a medal, right? And reference to it for six weeks after, right?
  4. And your foot didn't bother you? Great! Used to be, thrift stores were so cheap, you could guess at a size, and it didn't matter much if you guessed wrong. You could just bring it back and swap it out and the two or three dollars' difference usually wasn't worth worrying about. There were times in my life when I didn't have that two or three dollars. Now, they don't swap, and even if they did, the getting back is the hard part. I'm gad you had your day, and it sounds just lovely.
  5. I freeze it in zip-lock bags. I have a five-gallon ziplock bag in the chest freezer with a bunch of different ziplock bags of different kinds of broth and meat jellies in it. From hard experience, I've learned to label the spice job on each bag; some do not mix.
  6. Nobody likes to let go of power, true; it's something people in power have to watch about themselves. And nobody respects someone who can't make up his mind. But (bear in mind I don't know California rules) is he changing the rules because he can't make up his mind, or because he is trying to loosen them to adapt to give people more freedom when the disease weakens, then tighten the rules upon finding out that they were loosened too much and have let the disease gain back strength? Do you have evidence he's not just trying to find the right middle ground based on information that keeps chan

  8. The girls are the daughters of a friend. I've known them since they were knee high, and now one's in 12th grade and one's starting junior college. They live over an hour away so I don't see them sometimes for a year or a couple of years, but they went Covid-crazy in isolation and begged to see me. I said sure, and they've been coming by for sleepovers almost every weekend since. My friend then gets to watch what she wants on TV for one evening. Her going to work and my beau going to work are my major exposures. She's a nurse and very aware. He is neither. One of the girls is schooling o

  11. From the local TV station: Frustrated with empty shelves in the supermarket? More supply problems could be on the way Why are some food products still so hard to find? Frustrated with empty shelves in the supermarket? More supply problems could be on the way. By: WKBW StaffPosted at 5:38 PM, Sep 18, 2020 and last updated 5:38 PM, Sep 18, 2020 When COVID-19 became a public health emergency this past spring, it caused widespread problems for supply chains that moved food from manufacturers to your local grocery store. Six months after the pandemic started, consumers ar
  12. That looks really good. Allulose is expensive, but I'm down 80 pounds and looking to lose 50 more.
  13. The girls came by and helped clean my back porch. Worked very hard. Announced they were now going to go home and clean out Mom's and Grandma's pantry and cupboards. I pulled out a random can from my pantry (refried beans). "How would you decide whether to keep or toss this?" We had a long and, I hope, very profitable discussion. Turns out one of her favorite teachers had already given the "expiration dates sometimes are just a marketing tool" speech, but she didn't know how to apply the information. Their mother was sitting right there. I kept looking at her, but she didn't s
  14. LittleSister, don't forget hyperinflation. They've been printing money like it was junk mail.
