    Breakfast! 2018

    The whites of that egg look ,for all the world, as if they were made of white jade! Just the way it glistens is beautiful.

    Trader Joe's Products (2017–)

    I hadn't been to a TJ.s since March of last year. But Tuesday was the big day. I was pretty restrained and only spent $125. I won't bog you down with details because it wasn't anything that hasn't been posted. I'm just excited about the trip up and down the aisles. In the back of my mind I swear I could hear both the freezer and refrigerator yelling at me to use restraint....ha what dreamers they are. I am very good about rationing stuff out so this will last a long time. I love grocery shopping is new and/or seldom visited stores!

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Wow, if seed catalogs had centerfolds, that would be one for sure. "Miss Hot Tomato of August! See more when we lift the toast....."
  4. As so many have said, I will miss your annual summer trip! But knowing you two, I suspect we have not heard the last of them by any means. It is just the end of a chapter, not an entire book! Safe trip home for the three of you.
  5. My God, you made chocolate ammonites. My fossil loving kid would kill for those.

    Ann_T, I've missed seeing your wonderful meals and especially Moe's breakfasts! So happy to see you posting again.

    Breakfast! 2018

    Love the nuthatch mug!
  8. The only thing I take extra care with are leafy greens. After a good rinse, they get a ride on that merry-go-round we call a salad spinner.
  9. LOL, almost looks like my eyes during allergy season. Yup, they're green but point in the same direction I hope.
  10. Hantavirus is the real nasty one rodents carry. Former principal of our local middle school caught and died of it while on vacation in the south west several years ago. He was a young healthy guy at the time tool
  11. I just moved City of Gold to the top of the Nexflix queue. Loved it the first time and I'm sure it will be a bitter/sweet repeat this time around.
  12. Oh I'll miss him so much. After I saw City of Gold, I just knew we shared at least one gene. Seeing the shot of his stair steps pilled high with books I felt we were cousins at least! He gave voices to so many small restaurants, especially those which filled a special ethnic niche. I suspect he had a large part of putting Korea Town on the map and he rarely met a taco truck he didn't like. He was a unique, one of a kind treasure and Los Angeles was so lucky to have him.
  13. I vaguely recall my snooty grandmother having a cut glass dish just for celery on her table. Don't recall anyone ever eating a single stalk of the stuff. Maybe the dish was real but the celery stalks were fake?
  14. Income: Farmers here rent hunting rights for deer and make big "bucks" (pun intended).

    Andrey Dubovic online classes

    But might it not be fun to offer them to someone and say, "Take two and call me in the morning?"

    Personally, I'd much rather have the silk purses and you can have the pig ears.

    Those melons made me laugh. I also wonder about the vegetarians who swear they will eat nothing that has a face. How will they handle fruit with faces😁?
  18. I'm enjoying this so much. Blogs are what first caught my attention here many years ago. Don't think I've ever been disappointed by one other than they don't last long enough.

    Farmers Markets 2018

    There used to be a chain of restaurants called Stucky's along major highways. They were usually in partnership with a Texaco gas station. Every one of the Stucky's was known for having a bee hive behind glass inside the store. It was a big drawing point, at least to our kids. I was far more interested in the pecan candy they sold.

    Rare Cookbook now on Ebay

    You're welcome. A few years ago, that place was my life. If it would stay still long enough to photograph or scan, I would try to sell it.

    Rare Cookbook now on Ebay

    It says that the listing was ended by the seller because there was an error in it.
  22. Did you hear about the little mole family that woke up early one morning. First Daddy Mole peeked out of the hole and took a big sniff. He smelled some delicious bacon frying. Next Mommy Mole did the same but she smelled bread being toasted. Now Baby Mole tried and tried to reach the top of the burrow but he just couldn't. Finally, in frustration he cried...."All I smell is mole-asses. Sneaking out of the thread now.

    Nathan's Hot dog Contest 2018

    I saw one in Des Moines parked in the lot of a Mexican restaurant. When we went inside, I scoped out all the customers but wasn't able to pick the driver out. Must keep some "civies" to change into

    "Oh I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Weiner" And now I am!
  25. I'll bet the staff at the hospital has their bibs on and their forks ready for Kerry's annual parade of goodies.
