  1. As a kid growing up in Los Angeles, I used to feel sorry for all those snow bound ones who got new bikes and roller skates from Santa. I suppose those same kids felt sorry for me because I couldn't build a snowman or have a snowball fight? The grass is always greener and the snow is always whiter on the other side isn't it?
  2. The food looks amazing but what really fills me with envy is that bare foot. Imagine being able to walk around shoe-less on Christmas... boggles my mind.
  3. I currently have one grocery store and no farmers' market. The store likes the idea of bigger is better when it come to carrots, cukes, zucchinis and more. The baby carrots are pre-packaged and from out of state. Will be very happy when shopping trips involve choices again!
  4. What next? Some chef is going to fill a salad bowl with lettuce, carrot, spinach and radish seeds and call it "Unborn Veggie Salad". All the foodies looking for the latest trend will worship at his feet. Baby carrots are usually just old tough ones peeled down to almost their cores and pretty tasteless.
  5. Don't know if this qualifies, but the label on the meat at my local market says "Grown and harvested in Iowa. I get this horrible mental image of people skipping through a meadow and picking chickens off the poultry tree . Or maybe watching the John Deere beef baler carefully wrap up a side of beef. Rows of wee lambs ripening on bushes......
  6. I have every single issue! Once I realized that they might become collectible, I left them pretty much untouched except for removing the blow-in ads. Never hurts to invest in the first issue of a new magazine. Did that with Playgirl and it proved a smart move too.

  8. The air fryer for sure. It sits on the counter, a large black egg, giving me the stink eye! And the food processor is such a pain in the ass to get out of the cupboard that I just find a work around a lot of the time.
  9. Supposed to reach 70 degrees today. If you have hay to make while the sun shines, get busy-this won't last!
  10. I tend to shy away from eating anything that could and would eat me! Worked out well so far. The exception may be pigs. Heard stories about how some farmer fell while feeding hogs and they ate him before his family even missed him Hum, they liked him better than their ration of *orn I guess, Even those stories won't stop me from eating pork!
  11. Maybe that dog-like critter is a hyena or a jackal? Could it be included, like the vulture, because it often eats spoiled meat? Looks like cannibalism is okay though. Might be good to know in a pinch,

    Dinner 2020

    My parents made this back in the late 60's. I was so jealous that they had that set of cookbooks and could fix something that tasted like that! A few years later I was able to buy my own set of the books and sauerbraten was the first thing I cooked from the book of German cooking . I used to get so excited when a new book came. But towards the end I had the option of getting the last five books all at the same time. I said "yes" and I still remember the day they arrived. Right now I can look across the room and see the books on the shelf. They are on one end and all the sp

    Just stunning and, I suspect, well worth the wait. What a joy for you to be able to cook in that beautiful space!
  14. Have to laugh at the Sunbeam Mixmaster booklet; I don't have one BUT I do have the mixer. It was my Nana's and she gave it to me when she bought a new one. It is such a workhorse it makes the Energizer Bunny look lazy. I fully expect it to last long enough to pass on to one of our daughters.
