When I used to do a lot of dyeing of fiber, I hated wearing gloves (or I'd always forget and have to play in the pot/with the fiber without gloves on). I bleached my hands afterwards to get the dye off. It works re: beet-juice stains on the hands as well.

There was that time a {...} missionary came to the door. I had gloves on that were stained "red." (Actually, I was dyeing wool fuchsia, but I won't quibble about the color.)

"Hi, can I share the message of ... with you?" Missionary
Me: "Sorry, this is a bad time, I have something dyeing on the stove." (This with my arms held up as if I had just stood at a scrub sink and was about to go into surgery).

I don't think I've ever seen anyone turn tail and run down my driveway that fast.


My Dad always told me to tell strangers that knock on our door that my father is busy cleaning his 38. I was alone after school most of the time.
I did as I was told and one time the people at the door were Jehovah's Witnesses. When they asked where my parents were I told them my Daddy is cleaning his gun and when they asked if they could talk to him I said they better not "he'll shoot if you try anything"

They never came back to our house

I'll try slipping the skins off, thank you We don't get golden beets.
My biggest problem is the psoriasis on my hands. The colour seeps into the dry cracks and patches.
I love beets so it's worth it!

My heart goes out to you. I have had psoriasis for 50 years. Can't tell you the number of times I have gone into remission. And I have no idea what makes me go into remission. but I do know what causes a flareup. Stress!

I have participated in three field trials. And two of those drugs made it to the market. I was ask to participate again when I was working at Wyeth Pharmaceutical. And I couldn't. It was a product being tested by Wyeth. And I was in charge of patients records in trials. Conflict of interest.

Ditto Addie!
I have managed to be psoriasis free for short periods but it never goes away completely.
Yes I agree, stress causes flare ups but how to never stress?!

No thanks. I will pass on that offer. I have the adoption papers already signed for mine. The oldest is 57 and the youngest 40. All are potty trained.

And I have outlived two husbands. I think I may be bad luck for husbands.

I haven't stayed with my husbands long enough to outlive them

I got married in 1977 and am still married to the same wife. As for beets, I love them any way you cook them. as for the theme topic, I couldn't pin it down. Usually I go for something protein rich and slightly salty, such as any fo the following: Pepperoni, Salami, bolgna, most any kind of good cheese, liverwurst, a cold hot dog, slice of ham, peanut butter on whole grain toast, peanut butter on whole grain toast with fruit jam, glass of ice cold milk, a spoonful of leftover whatever, a handfull of frozen peas, a swig of Lee & Perrin's Worcestershire Sauce, left over cold fish, leftover pizza.

Occasionally (I'm talking maybe 3 or 4 times a year), a bowl of cereal, a piece of fruit, ice cream, fruit pie, a slice of carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, pudding (butterscotch is my favorite).

But if there's lunch meat, or any of the epecially if there's any of the salami family, i.e. hard salami, cotto salami, soprasetta, pepperoni, etc., that's my first choice. 2nd to that is a good, strong firm cheese, such as cheddar of Swiss.

Oh, and chili is good any time of the day or night.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Had a hankering for something sweet/salty/crunchy last night. I nuked some semisweet chocolate chips, crunchy peanut butter, a couple tsps of coconut oil, added a bit of instant coffee powder and threw in some sliced almonds, lime peanuts, and sunflower seeds, then stirred in some multigrain Cheerios. Dropped spoonfuls onto parchment paper and refrigerated. They hit the spot! Sort of like the Chinese noodle nests.

I had a slice of toast with melted white cheddar and homemade sweet pickled peppadews :) Yum!!! Think this is my best batch of peppadews yet.

Darn it Chief, I want Salami now lol!
