    Restaurant flatware thoughts

    I do have arthritis and skinny handles do not work for me at all.

    Old cookbooks

    That is so cute, but I wouldn't dream of buying one until I unpack all my boxes of old cookbooks. It looks familiar enough to me that there is a very good chance I've already got a copy.

    Oh, man! I hope mine still has it in a couple of weeks when I get back!

    I can't believe the lines to get in!! 😮
  5. Exactly! I am actually happy when my British friends tell me they made my corn pudding that they had at our house one Thanksgiving and always think of us when they have it. And the same for when I make my friend's Shepherd's Pie recipe. Brings me happy memories to remember when she made it for us when we were there for their daughter's wedding. Just like food, recipes are meant for sharing. JMHO P.S. I am not a big "recipe cook"but rather wing it as I go, using a recipe as a general guideline. It can be difficult for me to tell someone exactly how I made something when every time I make it, it is a little different.
  6. Steak Pizzaiola as made by a friend's Sicilian mother. She wouldn't share the recipe and now she's gone.

    Recommendations for flameless candles?

    The most realistic ones I've seen are Luminara brand--various sizes/colors. But they are pricey. https://www.amazon.com/Luminara-Flameless-Halloween-Christmas-Wedding/dp/B01AI1A7JE/ref=sr_1_7?s=furniture&ie=UTF8&qid=1532182141&sr=1-7&keywords=luminara+flameless+candles

    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.
