Excellent! Thanks TL.

And now, I do believe it is time for me to head to bed. Lots to do tomorrow including the dreaded "baking".

Goodnight all.

I don't do much with yogurt unless I really want to follow a recipe. Pretty much the raisin bran story. Nobody told me you had to stir it before eating it. Although I did have orange yogurt ice cream the other day.
Same here. Sour cream is great straight, yogourt is kinda sour. I usually have yogourt in the house for cooking and baking and salad dressings. The only time I like yogourt straight is if I have been making it myself and it's several "generations" along. It gets much softer tasting, but it's still not as yummy as sour cream.

Tonight I was "working/volunteering" as interpreter for a large worship/bible study service. I get nervous so didn't dinner and had a late lunch instead. Then when I got home, I ate ice cream. Now I'm ready for bed. Guess I'll have to cook tomorrow night though.

I grabbed a smallish bag (10.5 oz) of kimchi on a whim from Trader Joe's over the weekend & it is surprisingly good! Tonight it was kimchi stir-fried rice topped with an over-easy egg.

I made a grilled chicken and garlic linguine ( lots of garlic and butter, yum!) with fresh green beans on the side.

My Mom said that's what Grandma always threatened to do...but she never did.

Back in "the day" (1920s) most families, even in the city, had a serious garden in the back yard. Grandma & Grandpa's house had a very deep yard, so there was a small grassy area for play and hanging clothes, then a huge garden, and then the chicken coop all the way at the back. I'm totally in awe of my Grandma and I never had the chance to meet her.

Your mushrooms were growing beards? Never had that happen to 'shrooms, but I've run across a few strawberries in my fridge over the years that looked a little like a member of ZZ Top.

There is nothing wrong with ice cream as a supper.

I'll second that. I don't like the smell or taste of lamb either, but those sure are pretty. Pretty enough to be pork.

I made powerplantop's No Mayo Potato Salad to go with the fish and veggies tonight. Very ! Also, didn't make a salad because I wanted to save room for one of the French Crumb Cake muffins I got...
