  1. Breakfast! 2018

    A very fine toastie.
  2. She's a fortunate woman. I can remember it being an annual event in Memphis, the first day Dinstuhl's (local well-known candymaker) had their first chocolate covered strawberries. Line would be out the door and all the way down the block. And I would be in it.
  3. I like my serrated knives for two things: bread, and fresh tomatoes.
  4. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    I hereby bequeath you my share of all the green bell peppers in the world. And about three-quarters of my share of the red and yellow ones. I WILL use a few of those, when pushed.
  5. Oreo Cookies

    No. Tried the Salted Caramel Oreo Thins. I wanted to love them. Didn't.
  6. Gochujang

    I get it at the Asian market. Never without it.
  7. Breakfast! 2018

    Things of beauty, those are.
  8. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    I recreated a dish I had at a restaurant and enjoyed recently -- bacon barbecue mac and cheese. Made my usual mac and cheese, added a pound and a half of chopped pork barbecue that'd been mixed with some sauce and toasted in the CSO, as well as about a dozen strips of thin bacon. Put it all back in the oven and baked it. The children pronounced it fine. I thought it was OK, but it wasn't what I was in the mood for.
  9. My greeting

    Welcome! Looking forward to seeing and hearing about some of your meals.
  10. I suspect I would die if my CSO bit the dust. I damn-sho know I'd order another one ASAP. I use it just about daily. Good to know there's a three-year warranty. Mine seems to be plugging along happily.
  11. Breakfast! 2018

    Fresh yogurt, freshly made granola, and blueberries. Inspired by the fact blueberries were two cartons for four bucks at Kroger.
  12. The Dish Towel

    I have about 15-20. There are generally two hanging on the towel rack near the sink at any given time. They're used for wiping up spills, wiping down cutting boards or hand-washed dishes, and whatever else. I have several that are a cotton-poly blend that I dislike greatly because they are not very absorbent; those migrate to the back of the drawer and are periodically pulled out to use for dustcloths or folded up for hot pads. The remainder are all-cotton, either terry or the "flour sack" variety. I also have, in the bottom of the china cabinet, a package and a half of flour sack towels (either 12 or 18 in a package) I got at Sams because you just don't see them often and I love them. They get gradually fed into the mix as the others go away. Right now, my goal is to get rid of all the blend ones, but the damn things just won't...wear...out...
  13. No. There's very little, if any, regulation on dietary supplements/"natural" remedies, etc. There is also, fwiw, next to no regulation on personal care products, which means that whoever's claim that your shampoo is all-natural, etc., is worth somewhat less than the .01 second of your time it took you to read that on the label. There's a fairly vigorous movement out there it toughen the standards. But it's a big industry to fight, and it is, I'm sure, not anxious to be regulated. Caveat emptor.
  14. Dog breading. Oh, dear God. Lucy the Pug says, though, that she approves. She likes bread. Although it makes her itch.
