I also reduce the size of the onion flakes with my small FP. When large, I find that they tend to want to sink to the bottom. And then every time you went to use it, you had to stir it again! You can also use the low sodium cubes.

I am constantly surprised by the fact that I have become very sensitive to salty foods. Most of the time I will forget to put salt into something I am cooking on the stove like potatoes or pasta.

Plastic wrap would probably work well and it would be easy to get the dried stock off from. It should hold up at dehydrating temperatures.

I might run a test with some plastic wrap on some tin foil in the roasting pan.

I've seen people use it to line a pan before baking, I would think that it would totally melt, but it didn't seem to.

This morning I stopped at the local Walmart to pick up a few odds and ends that I can't find in other local stores. I headed for the checkout and noticed that only two of the more than twenty checkout lines were open and that they both had several customers with heaping carts waiting in line. I looked at the self check out and it was empty except for two employee's that were having a chat. I scanned my items and bagged them without incident, a real triumph for me! I hit the button to finish and pay, up popped a screen with several payment options. The only option that appeared to be missing was cash. I asked the two employees for help and they happily informed me that I was at a self check out machine that does not accept, CASH!!! The older lady scurried off and the younger one came over, cleared my transaction and directed me to another machine that did in fact take cash. Why do I even bother to try these modern "conveniences"!

These self serve check out stations often run out of cash (to make change). Most will let you know if they're not accepting cash before you ring anything up.

Petty Vents

Those self checkouts at Walmart frighten me. And I'm big and tough.

The better question would be, "Why do you even bother to ask for help?"

I have yet to ever ask for help at Market Basket and receive an attitude instead. In fact the help will approach me before I even have to ask. I don't ask for help, I ask for assistance.
