Thanks, TL.

In honor of its return, I just ordered two cookbooks. The Bread Baker's Apprentice and the Ratios book.

Now I have to actually make some breads.

I just have to worry about what the other condo owners put down our shared-to-the-street sewer line. Last time the plumber found a disposable diaper. Flooded my basement. yuck.

DH found a small lump on the beagle. He thought it was a wart. Upon flashlight inspection, it turned out to be a white tick! I removed and incinerated the tick, and beagle has been Frontlined and Heartguarded. She is now Frontlining the couch and carpet.

I get complacent in the winter with Frontlining. With the weather as warm as it has been, I need to be more careful! The little beasties are out there!

Nope! I did my stint as an apartment manager, will never clean out another plugged toilet! Thanks for trying to keep me busy, though...

i've always liked to add a few tomato slices to my grilled cheese sandwiches. today, having no tomatoes on hand, i used a thin layer of medium strength salsa instead. WOW!! a flavor explosion of tomatoey cheese like i've never tasted before in a garden variety grilled cheese sammy! salsa tastes even better than fresh tomatoes in this case, strange but true....

Not so strange, Vit. I've been discovering more ways to use salsa. It's better than catsup. Mixed with tomato juice or V8 it makes a really delicious and easy gazpacho. I'll definitely try it on grilled cheese, now that you've given me the idea. Thanks!
