Hey Middie - need help?
I've just finished making lunch - I made my famous "Summer Salad". I'm bringing the first batch for lunch with a friend. My little one is at Disneyland today with the all the academic achievers from school, and the older one has an academic award ceremony tonight. It'll be hard to feed everyone at the same time, so Summer Salad is on the menu for dinner too.

I found six carbon steel knives this morning for my auntie at the thrift shop for a buck each!

I just finished washing and steel wooling them, and now I am going to spend some time with the sharpening stone.

I also found three pyrex pie pans, a pyrex square cake pan, and a pyrex loaf pan. I washed them up for the Boys and Girls' club and they are on the dish drainer now.

A little bleach in the wash water for disinfecting purposes, and they all shine like new.

Now THAT's shopping!

I go to estate sales for stuff like that too. Usually the older stuff holds up so much better than new.

Middie and Choclate, want some Summer Salad? I've got a TON!

The knives are all sharpened now, and tomorrow, I will surprise my auntie with them!

Sure, I'll have some salad. I haven't eaten lunch yet.

Do you have some lemonade?

Choclate, I have some Lemonade-Iced Tea. Want some? I'll even put a mint sprig in so it's pretty.

Yes, Maidrite, please take some - It is spilling over the top of my 18 qt. roaster that I have to mix it in. As for the # 51...Okee dokee. Blue cream of wheat, blue jell-o, grilled blue-gill and bleu cheese dressing on the salad. Would you like your Cottage cheese blue?
Oh! and would you like some of the Lemonade-Iced Tea too?

Sweeping looks nice, btw.
