Because of our situation, we have been running out of clothes, too, so I really do understand. We, too, have house clothes and appt. clothes. Sheesh. I hope that you can get yours back.
Hmmmm. You said that the avocado was large. Is there an identifying sticker on it saying that it was grown here, Mexico, Florida?
First, it's not avocado season, and that could be it in a nutshell. But...once we bought a large avocado that was grown in Fl. It was 'watery' tasting, tasteless, and had a weird consistency. It pretty much fits your description. I've always been an avocado nut, and I didn't like it at all. Nor did I finish eating it. Ds hasn't had a problem since - no one liked it, and he's bought only Haas avocadoes from here or Mexico since.
A good turkey sandwich - yum! Stovetop stuffing's not bad, no.
Do you like Harvard beets? I may have given you this recipe before, but I came up with one about 10 years ago that tastes like the ones that came in a jar 50 + years ago. It's super simple, and if you start with canned, ridiculously so. But, you can boil or bake fresh beets, too. Cool, peel, and slice. Here it is:
These taste exactly like the jarred ones back when. I worked on the recipe until they did. They are eaten heated.
Canned Beets, sliced, or fresh ones, 1-3 cans
White Sugar, 3/4 Cup
Vinegar, ½ Cup
Cornstarch, 1 Tablespoon
Salt, small pinch
Combine liquid from 1 can of sliced beets, even if you are making more, with the sugar, vinegar, cornstarch, and salt.
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for a minute, to allow it to thicken.
Take off of the burner, and add the well-drained, sliced beets from 1-3 cans to the liquid. Stir well, serve hot.
Tip: This refrigerates perfectly when you have leftovers. Heat the amount you that you want, as you wish.
Yes, a lot of sugar, but you don't eat most of it. You can serve them with a slotted spoon, if you like.
The funny thing is that I just sent this recipe to Ds on Monday. We like beets roasted, boiled, pickled, and as in this recipe. :-)
Yeah for BLT's! A favorite of mine, and a tasty way to start the day!
I had never connected the nails and D until you said it. I had wondered for years - starting around the 90's, why my nails, which had been a good length for months and months, would start to break right before my parents would visit, which was in Oct. Now I think that my sun exposure time was cut back at that time. Very interesting!
Oh, how cool about your coffee pot!
A lot like you, I think.
If we can't catch up on toasting the egg shells for the hens, and that happens more than it should, then yes, eggshells.
Also, tea bags, and any vegetable parts that can't be fed to the hens, which includes celery parts, onion parts, citrus peels and apple cores, etc.
We also compost some weeds that aren't harmful to growing vegetables, and which don't have seeds yet. Since a lot of weeds have deep tap roots, they bring up nutrients that you wouldn't normally get. We knock off the soil, though, or rinse the roots with a hose, so that the soil stays where it was.
We dig a hole for anything that's actually gone bad like meat, or canned foods, because they will attract wild animals.
Yes, very similar uses for bread bags, and the like. How funny that we both have the same ideas.
The same here. I have the smaller white bags - maybe 4 gal.?
And, large black bags for some needs, plus recycling trash cans and bags for: cans, plastics, glass, paper (I first cut up paper that comes in mail, if there's blank areas on them, plus the envelopes, and lay them into an open container, like 1/2 of a small box. We use that for scratch paper. Then, when used, it's recycled with the rest.), and cardboard.
I like the squared off trash cans because they line up smoothly, and take less room than the round ones. When one is full, it's ready to go. Wish I still had trash pick up. I'm so glad that you do!
Absolutely. Boxes take up too much room not to break them down.
I belong to a group of SD users. It's a quiet group overall, but at the holidays, most go into themselves. It's a holiday thing. :-(
That's great about the yard shoes! And, the boots and tees!
I hadn't mentioned it, but Ds's work coat has gotten tatty, and while he was at a thrift shop looking for a frame for a photo for ddil, he found a Carhartt, which he likes. Normally $140-ish, but for $8.99!
The kicker is, that since coming up here, Dh doesn't have a coat - so Ds gave him the sale one! I thought that was so nice of him! It's a hair small, like your boots, but thank goodness for it anyway, as you said.
I love yard/garage/thrift shop deals!
That's wonderful about your favorite cousin's brother!
No, it's not easy without a car.
Oh, cool! I hope that she likes it!
Well, off to bed! Have a great day!
