  1. I've used both commercial cages and cane poles stacked as "teepees" and tied at the top. With cages, you generally don't have to tie the tomatoes. With any kind of poles, you do. I find the legs cut off panty hose work wonderfully; they don't cut into the plants.
  2. Pulled out a pork shoulder roast to cook tomorrow, and a package of vac-packed ham from Christmas to go in a ham and cheese Dutch baby tonight. I also pulled out a bag of lima beans, because originally I was planning to have ham, mashed potatoes and limas for dinner tonight, but I changed my mind so the beans went back in. They'll go in Brunswick Stew which will be made with leftover pork roast, which will make several containers that will go....back in the freezer. Sigh.
  3. I don't know why, but when I make one of these I almost always make the other as well. Coconut macaroons. Stovetop chocolate peanut butter cookies. First time I've made them with King Arthur Double Dutch cocoa. Might cut that back a bit next time. They're REAL chocolatey...
  4. I've had great luck cooking ribs and then finishing them in the smoker to get a crust and some smoke flavor. I also love the fact I can SV a whole bunch of slabs of ribs, throw them in the freezer in the SV bag, and then pull them out and finish off as I want, when I want.

    beer cocktail recipes - i'm serious

    Some folks are into beer and tomato juice. Personally, I've never understood that. Shandy's OK, though.

    Valentine's Day Dinner

    I'm having fruit. Liquid fruit. Grapes, to be precise. It's been a helluva day. My Valentine, Lucy the pug, is asleep on my feet. I may break out some cheese and charcuterie later on. Life ain't bad.
  8. I was going to suggest Lodge, but @gfweb beat me to it. Should you ever find yourself in SE Tennessee, I highly recommend a stop by the Lodge factory store in South Pittsburg.

    Grocery Shopping

    I've been pigging out on blueberries, myself. With yogurt and granola in the mornings, in blueberry muffins, in pancakes, and just to eat like candy out of the package. Love 'em. I need to get some strawberries and dip them in chocolate for Valentine's Day.
  10. Is Lagavulin one of the really smoky Scotches? I can't remember what Scotch I had that was so smoky I couldn't drink it. Maybe Laphroaig? I'm a Highlands malt gal, myself. I've never met a single-malt that started with "Glen" that I didn't like. Also very fond of Oban and Balvenie. @rotuts, I agree with you; bourbon seems too sweet. I keep it on hand for friends and to cook with (a little bourbon does wonderful things for French onion soup....). I need to pick up some rye; I've got an urge for Manhattans.
  11. Beautiful cookies! Wish I were your Valentine....😀😍😍

    @Shelby, what cinnamon roll recipe do you use? Last ones I made were dry.

    McDonald's 2013–

    Mickey D's pies are all baked now. My standard breakfast en route to an early morning meeting I have once a month, an hour and 15 minutes away, is an apple pie, hash browns and a big orange juice (I have my coffee with me in the big ol' road mug). Wouldn't do to have my stomach growling at the meeting with my biggest client.
