I'm going to mix some up for later today, thanks for the reminder.

I read it was an old fashioned remedy (I read it 35 years ago) for changing your already gray hair back to the original color when it grew in. It worked along with hair coloring.
My hair color is needing a touch up...

I wouldn't be able to drink that mixture. I cannot abide the taste of molasses.

Nope, family illness have taken precedence over preparation of food. As soon as I have Shrek all better, I will be able to start creating again.

How are you doing, Damien? :)

Been well. I've been volunteering in my community for the local fire department so that has kept me busy. I have been smoking some foods trying to learn.. Smoked some salmon the other day.. Turned out great with a mild applewood smoke.

Very well, Thank you. He's come a long way from a month ago, just healing up the surgical wound now. They couldn't close it for fear of infection. He had a ruptured appendix and ischemic (dead) large intestine that caused peritonitis. We go to the wound care clinic today to see how my nursing skills are doing.

Thanks!
His surgeon was well pleased, the wound is 75% smaller than it was 2 weeks ago. And we are down to one dressing change a day. I was told I have done splendid work...even if Shrek is grumpy.

PF, are you going to update us on Shrek's progress? I hope he's doing well, and you too!

I had an almost bento box success today.
Monday I was set on buying bento boxes for Trapper and he said no because he is retiring soon. I reasoned with him that he could use it while he was gone during the day after he retired, he said, naw.

So I took a 6x6x1 (5x5x1?) inch plastic container w/lid. On the diagonal I placed a romaine leaf to keep two items separate, put the tuna macaroni salad on that triangle side over the romaine, with tomato wedges to garnish. On the other triangle I put the quinoa pear pecan salad with apple wedges dipped in lemon to garnish.

He was so impressed he called to tell me so.
