I learned new signs this week and how to use my hands to represent an object or action when telling a story in sign language. Not much cooking went on in my house this week so nothing new there to learn but I hope to try the butter crust recipe with my pie maker next week.

Thanks for the info though, I've seen possums but never actually eaten them
I figured you were referring to the awesome possum chili thread. I thought it was funny.

Thanks For a while there I'd thought I was losing my sense of humour

I learned this week that my husband has a lovely soft center, even though he would like folks to believe he's a big tough guy. I knew he was a softie, but this week demonstrated it beautifully.

Last week a sweet, little female grey tabby kitty showed up. Glenn's not much of a cat person, especially when it comes to them climbing up and scratching the finish on our vehicles.

At first, he encouraged me to chase her away or to find a home for her. In all honesty, I did try to find someone to adopt her because she's very friendly and affectionate. I knew she'd be a great pet for a family with children, particularly little girls.

Well, by Thursday, Bella had captured Glenn's heart and she's now ours. She just melted him and he even enjoys petting her and talking to her on the sill at the open window by his chair in the living room.

He asked me why I named her Bella. I told him she simply looked like Bella, plus she was beautiful.

Yes, I'll take a picture when she sits still long enough.

She's tiny. Probably less than a year old. However, my Sally is 6 and just as small as Bella. Perhaps Bella will be a petite little girl.

She has white tips on each of her paws, white on her tummy and a little white ruff under her chin. Both ears have just the slightest "lynx" points, which are so cute.

See why I named her Bella?!

I learned that salt and sugar will provide a chemical reaction that makes a wonderful brine for pork. I learned that my 83 year father can have three surgeries in three days and still have a sense of humor about it all. And finally, I learned that I'm not as young as I used to be and my body reminds me of it.

If anyone is interested, the easiest way to rind a melon is to cut off both ends, (do this to all the melons before removing the rinds), stand each one up, and using your chef's knife, start at the tip of the knife and slide back to the heel of the knife as you go down the side of the melon. For watermelons, it helps to take a bit off at one end to help start it. To hold the melon, gripe it in the center with your index and middle finger. If the melons have been in the fridge, wearing gloves helps--your fingers don't get quite as cold. I've done a lot of watermelons, honeydews, and musk melons this week. It works. If you are doing a lot of melons, remove the ends from all of them, then the rinds, half and seed, and then cut/ball accordingly.
