  1. Regarding the question of Hot German Potato Salad being an actual German dish, yes it is. I checked in a cookbook written in Germany and it lists 4 regional variations. I mentioned this to my wife and she reminded me of when we served my MIL's recipe for HGPS to our friend Geli years ago, and Geli said it was was an authentic dish. Our friendship with her and her husband was such that she would not have said so just out of politeness.
  2. Agreed. Several years ago an acquaintance offered me some potato salad, and I declined. I found out a little while later that it was SWEET potato salad. I'm glad I declined. I would have gagged on it. My potato salad is steamed red or gold potatoes (skin on) cut smallish bite size, salt, Best Foods or homemade mayo, green onion or onion powder, finely chopped celery and chopped hard-cooked eggs. Raw red onion was part of it in the past, but my Sweetie no longer does the raw onion thing; they don't agree with her any more. Sometimes paprika in a nod to my mom's PS, which was always liked by me.
  3. It's being replaced by the Thermapen One, one second temperature readings.
  4. I thought this was a very good read.
  5. I would have preferred Lowes. Unfortunately they don't do cabinet refacing.
  6. The big box store we used was Home Depot. I strongly recommend you avoid them. In the department of surprises: Before the renovation we had a room AC unit in the kitchen window so we never "opened" it. When I went to open it a couple of weeks ago I discovered that the tile guy had randomly smeared grout between the window and window frame. I have taken care of it. The laminate flooring contractor was awesome. The crew of 4 did the complete job in 2 hours.
  7. I prefer the squeeze bottle with the cap at the bottom. In our home catsup has 2 uses, dipping sauce for our grandchildren, and topping (before baking) meatloaf. The 3 y/o grandchild would prefer to just eat the catsup, but we do require her to eat some actual food. RE ... we do require ... My mother was the wrong kind of indulgent, not expecting the kids to behave. My wonderful in-laws showed lots of love and kindness, but expected the kids to behave.
  8. A Girl and Her Pig called out to me.
  9. Regular Chili White Chili and Beans Ground Beef and Onions in White Sauce over a Baked Potato or Noodles
  10. I replaced my Thermapen with the MK4 Thermapen and gave my daughter my original Thermapen.
  11. We chose a Moen no-touch faucet for the sink. I discovered that if you pour out boiling water on the side where the faucet is, the steam turns on the faucet.
  12. The completed (except for the window blinds and valance) kitchen. Between preparing for vacation, getting ready for the flooring, and life, the peninsula became a catch-all. Looking past the peninsula and pantry to the family room. I buggered up my upper right arm/shoulder but good last month and it has only pretty much healed up this week. I couldn't support weight with it so I had to put off installing the blinds.
  13. This is a butcher knife to me. The main section of knife has a large curve and then there is tapering towards the handle. YMMV.
