    Rare Cookbook now on Ebay

    That link takes me to an art book?

    I had better luck with this. The first one was so good that I picked up another when I went back. Sorry you got one that wasn't ripe. 😞

    I got these Crunch Dried Honeycrisp Apples a month or two ago. They are great on salads, but recently, my breakfast has been plain Greek yogurt drizzled with honey and topped with these and some toasted sliced almonds. And a sprinkle of cinnamon. Yum! Crunch Dried Apples

    Yes, I've been buying these for the past couple of months. They are the best avocados I've been able to get in this area for a long time!

    Completely agree on Just Beets. They weren't awful, but I couldn't find a good reason to even finish the bag. I do like both the Sweet Potato and Beet 3-Seed Crackers. A few go a long way--I never want too many in one sitting unless I have enough different cheeses to mix up the flavor. They start to wear on me after a while, too.

    What do you recommend at Costco?

    Printer ink and Kirkland brand paper towels. And big bags of peanuts (in shell) to feed the squirrels. Tons of other stuff, of course, but don't think those have been mentioned yet.

    I did just sign up for this, though not sure how closely I will follow it. I wish I could see a month of the plans instead of just 2 weeks. And we get a Butcher Box from a local butcher every 2 weeks. We don't know what is in it until we pick it up, so I will have to do a lot of switching out of proteins. I figured for the same thing I pay for Sirius, I can at least get some cooking inspiration.

    Yes--I'm not a huge fan of them, though they are a bit addictive if you let yourself get started. They remind me a bit of larger versions of Pik-Nik Shoestring Potatoes.

    Desirable Vintage Cookware

    I have quite a few of these vintage French tin pots. A couple large and probably a dozen small, which I love to serve gazpacho in (keeps it nicely chilled). Nothing that special, just nice, usable vintage pieces.

    Treasured Culinary Mementos

    My Mom's family lived in the Kansas City, MO area for a number of generations. At one time, they lived on a farm that was neighbor to the James family. Jesse and his brother Frank would stop in occasionally for a cup of coffee. Mom had the sugar bowl that they got their sugar from for their coffee. This was always a delightful story to share with friends and show them the bowl when we were kids and I still have friends ask about it. I wish I had a photo of it, but Mom (she just passed on Oct. 4) had dementia and about 3 or 4 years ago, she gave it away. I was so distraught since I didn't even have a photo of it and no idea where it is or with whom. Let that be a lesson to all--if you have a family member with dementia, be sure to get anything meaningful away from them, even if they are "not that bad yet."
  13. I searched for a very long time for something like this, tried the Kind bars and some other "savory" options. I just never found what I really wanted. In a perfect world, there would be a bar that tasted like bacon and eggs. Yes, I know I could make a sandwich of some sort, or little quiches, but those would need refrigeration/re-heating if I wanted to take them with me for travel. For the present time, I've just given up on the bar/recipe search. I eat a few crackers and a handful of nuts or something like that. If I'm not going to be too long, I might make a little cheese sandwich to take along.

    This might be my new obsession. Enjoying the one cup of it (sadly I didn't buy more) with a drizzle of honey. Icelandic-Style Plain Non-Fat Yogurt

    If anyone was considering their frozen soft shrimp tacos, don't. I thought it was going to be good "bachelor food" while my husband was out of town. I ended up tossing it and eating some crackers.
