That is one lovely looking pile of black gold taxy! Is your compost bin store-bought or homemade? Himself used scrap lumber from the building sites when our first house went up to build two bins abutted. I would pile and stir in one bin, then when it started to break down I'd flip it to the second bin to finish. Haven't had a compost pile since that house and I miss it - or at least its results!

Well, my plan for this morning is not going to happen, at least not the way I intended. My mom had shoulder surgery last Thursday and we're going up to visit (a two-hour drive). Her husband doesn't cook much so I was planning to make a big pot of ribollita (Italian twice-boiled soup with lots of veggies, beans, greens and bread for thickening), but I'm not feeling well, so I'm not up to shopping and cooking. We're still going, because we are also taking them a load of dirt from digging out our patio for them to use as fill somewhere on their property.

So Plan B: We will stop at Food Lion on the way and get a rotisserie chicken, Bob Evans mashed potatoes, frozen green beans, and some nice rolls. I will also take them a quart container of frozen stuffed-bell-pepper stuffing I have and we will buy some peppers at the store, so they can have that later in the week. And I've already collected and printed a bunch of easy meal ideas to take, many of them gleaned from the Semi-Homemade Lazy Meals thread - so thanks for that, all!

Thanks, PF! I'm hoping she's keeping up with the pain meds.

Oh yes, emphasize how much faster she will heal if she is not in pain. She will also get mobility back faster.
