Happy Sunday, lt.

#1 - okay
#15 - okay
#18 - okay
#19 - okay on only 1/2 - pepper.

#10, I thought tomatoes were here, but the rest threw me. If you had included cranberries, and blueberries - well, that would have been the give away.
#16, I was shocked. I would have thought bread, unlevened or levened.

You're always teaching something, at least to me. Thanks, lt.
Enjoy your day.

Sorry Barbara; should have included both as acceptable................


This from Wikipedia......

Egg white is the common name for the clear liquid (also called the albumen or the glair/glaire) contained within an egg. It is the cytoplasm of the egg, which until fertilization is a single cell (including the yolk).

This from free distionary.......
glair also glaire (glâr)
n. 1. The white of an egg.
2. A sizing or glaze made of egg white.
3. A viscous substance resembling egg white.


I appreciate it when y'all keep me straightened out .
