This is very bad. We sort of need our thumbs.

High blood pressure is no big deal, had it all my life. Meds just make me pee a lot.[/QUOTE]
I know it's been high. I'm predisposed...I'll start taking it more seriously. Dial back on the excesses...except the peeing..that starts tomorrow...

Meh. As long as you have a bathroom or a wooded area that's not available for public view, it's all good.

Glad you got your thumb back!

Hehe, along that line...I was hoping my newly bought Cuisipro 3 way grater would do that, lol. It's bomb proof thick and heavy. Then again, so are the grate holes. I wish they were machined sharper. They could be tighter together too.

Thinking out loud here...I'm getting the idea to forget about 3 way graters and just buy a separate medium grater and a zester. They'd take up about as much space in my drawer and I bet I can find a flat medium grater that is sharper than anything they make in a flat 3 way grater. Note to self...dummy.

Roch, I hope you recovered from your weekend. And just keep reminding yourself that managed HBP is always better than UNmanaged HBP. Now your biggest challenge is to not get mad. Evil on the blood pressure...

Happy birthday, tenspeed. I think it's cute that it's YOUR birthday but your WIFE wants to go out! I thought she enjoyed your cooking.

GG, from your post I'm going to guess that your cold is all gone. BTW, do you have a recipe for a creamy chicken and poblano soup? I had a bowl of it at a now-closed deli about a decade ago. So good!

I made salads, then moved a few leftovers out of the fridge. What in the world would I do without leftovers?

Everyone in Matthew's path, be safe! Thankfully, most tropical storms are reduced to just heavy rains by the time it reaches us. We sure could use rain up here.

Take care, everyone.
We just made reservations for a hotel on the west coast Thursday and Friday nights. I'm filling and freezing 2L bottles of water. Already filled the car with gas along with several containers. Don't think the generator will do us much good.

She likes most of what I cook, with a few exceptions that she just tolerates, like when I bring home calamari. But hey, squid happens!

Last night both of us had sesame crusted yellowfin, which was delicious. It's not something that I make (not yet, anyway).

It's not certain how close it will get to us. Hoping we won't have to evacuate.
