  1. I haven’t been to any store since last Friday, I stocked up on mostly protein at Costco the Tuesday before.  I’m afraid I’ll run out of wine but my 10 years younger neighbor called to check in last night and told me she has plenty - she used to work at Silver Oak.  Told her I had extra frozen pesto so I think we have a quite uneven trade. My son has decided I’m on total house arrest so I’m making a grocery list although I could use pickup or delivery.  Feeling very grateful here after hearing some of your issues.

  2. I cleaned and organized my freezer today,  mainly to see what was there.  It’s just the bottom drawer of my fridge.  I have a lot, lot more protein than I thought.  3 bags of frozen peas, all opened.  3 large zip loc’s of lemon juice cubes.  Two large zip loc’s of pesto.  Lots of other things.  Lots of lemon zest.  With what I’ve got in my pantry because I overbought pasta and have a gifted excess of quinoa, I could live for two months.  Plus my Costco run included 42 lbs of cat litter.  Me, my cat (overbought cat food as well) and my son will have plenty to eat.  May have to buy more wine though.

  3. I went to Costco yesterday.  Like @kayb’ s comment, they had signs saying they were out of TP and paper towels.  But when I went back to the area they had one measly pallet of TP out.  Everyone that walked by grabbed a package.  I did too, even  though I feel like I already have enough.  Costco was much less crowded than usual.  Most people had cases of bottled water.  Everything  seemed pretty well stocked except the large bags of rice. They did have 3 packs of cans of San Mariano tomatos for $6.99.  I only bought two of those🙂

  4. Dungeness crab has always been a big part of my holidays. Even when I was very poor, crab was the dinner for trimming the Xmas tree.  I’ve done crab, garlic butter and bread dinner for all my life.  I’ve hosted for some folks in the last couple of years and they don’t have an understanding of the *ritual*.  There’s crab crackers that crack and amass a pile of crab and those that crack and eat it.  There’s an army on each side.

  5. I was vegetarian until I was about 12, not by ethical choice, I just didn’t like any of it.  My pediatrician told my mother I was too lazy to chew.  When I started to eat meat, it had to be well done.  Today I’ll eat beef/chicken/pork not well done but any fat really bothers me.  I’m one of those boneless skinless chicken breast lovers.  I did try sweetbreads once, it was at Veritas in NYC.  I ate it all but had no hankering to eat it again.  Pretty boring meat-wise but I’ll eat any vegetable.

  6. @MetsFan5  here’s a link to Lodi wineries. https://www.visitlodi.com/wineries/lodi-wine-trail-map/.  Friends of mine love Harney, I haven’t been to Lodi for quite a while.  There is a nice hotel in Lodi, Wine & Roses that I have been to, lovely grounds.  You may want to consider the Amador wine country, about 40 minutes east of Sacramento, they are red wine country.  I go there often, the foothills are more scenic than flat Lodi.  And Go Bears!

  7. Tooth scaling is not bad.  I’ve had it done once a year for about the last 5 years.  Had no problem eating afterwards.  But I have 5 implants, more crowns than I can remember and oral surgery to make room for the implants.  Plus fillings, root canals, etc.   Root scaling is the least painful.  It just seems to last a long time, but my hygienist is full of stories so it goes by rather quickly.

  8. @suzilightningI’m with John, sandwiches just don’t excite me.  Maybe a Cheesesteak or patty melt but meat and cheese or anything between a couple of pieces of bread don’t do it for me.  I’d rather just eat the innards.

  9. I selected quartzite/Cesarstone when I remodeled my kitchen 2.5 years ago.  I wanted the lowest maintenance product available and quartz is what the planner recommended.  I’m very happy with it.  It really is low maintenance.
