  1. @liuzhou so sorry for your loss. Glad you had that last trip back for her birthday.
  2. I get a lot of lemons this time of year and slice them fairly thin and dehydrate them. Use the slices in tea and water. Also as @Anna Nsaid, freezing the juice in ice cube trays and decanting into a zip loc is good too.
  3. Here’s my over the fridge cabinet. It’s full of bags of dehydrated lemons some stuffed into the vases stored there. The front of the cabinet has sugar and flours. I can reach the stuff in front but need a step stool to get to the lemons. I use the lemons everyday in tea but I have one zip lock in a lower drawer where I can reach it.
  4. Definitely counter space. When I remodeled my kitchen , I doubled the counter space and it’s the thing I appreciate the most. Next best improvement is the six burner gas stove. Under cabinet lighting is also worth it.
  5. Quite a loss, RIP Suzi
  6. @heidih I just pulled out my copy and couldn’t find stained glass cookies in it. Looking thru it was a trip down memory lane. I may make the molasses crinkle cookies.
  7. A lifelong friends husband had a stroke in March, then two other diseases were discovered both of which cause clotting. Many complications have ensued. I’ve been making dinner or baking for them about once a week. They could afford to have food delivered but my friend said it’s so comforting when friends cook for them. My friend and I started cooking together from the Betty Crocker Cookbook for Boys and Girls when we were about 8 yrs old. It certainly does feel good to do this.
  8. @Son MayhawI loved reading everything your dad wrote, it was so filled with joy, humor, and love of food. So sorry for your loss.
  9. After I made ham and potatoes for my son and turkey and stuffing for myself on Thanksgiving, we decided to have whatever we wanted for Christmas. So far, the votes are for beef filets and Dungeness crab. Maybe a vegetable, Brussels sprouts with bacon. New Year’s Day will be snacks, probably make his favorite bacon wrapped water chestnuts. Make try to sneak some bacon wrapped dates in there too. Mimosas with Costco prosecco. I’m saving my bottle of Veuve for the inauguration.
  10. I love barley, farro, and freekah. Usually use the barley in soup, farro and freekah as a salad base. I am so done with quinoa. A friend owned a company that did agricultural packing. When quinoa became popular, that’s all they packed for a while. I still have bags of regular, red and tri-color quinoa in my pantry. Bob Dylan’s son was the quinoa supplier. He imported it from Peru, IIRC.
  11. It’s just my son and I. My son wants ham, I want turkey. He wants au gratin potatoes and dressing. Ordered groceries for pick up yesterday. I ordered a small fresh turkey breast, they called and said they were out. I blithely said they could substitute any other fresh breast. Ended up with a full organic breast at almost triple the price. Think I will resume doing my own shopping as they forgot a few items as well. Making pecan pie in a couple of 7 inch cast iron skillets tonight, otherwise nothing has been done in advance. We probably won’t eat until late afternoon.
  12. The juicer I bought after a friend lost 30 lbs juicing. Never used it. Still have the extra pounds. The mini blender stick I bought when my cousin worked at Sur La Table. Definitely the spiralizer. All collecting dust.
  13. Thanks for taking us along, once again. I love your stories and scenery.
  14. I got my copy yesterday and have just started to read thru it. I volunteered as a poll worker for the next 4 days, so I won’t be cooking anything until next week. LGD sounds really good.
  15. @Anna Nso happy to see you posting more regularly again. I’ve missed you.
