Gi' us a hint. What makes it Swedish influenced?

Dill and lemon, TL. Take away making it a stew and use lamb chops, well, it really is only influenced by the dill and lemon. No egg, no veggies. Sides spring salad with roasted radishes, etc., and oven-roasted potato with garlic butter.

I understand Andy...but come time for the payout the money in savings will be used for an emergency during the year, not collected and saved for our eyeglasses, dental work, etc. I do put as much as I can in my 401K.

Shrek is really good at "saving" money until he sees something he wants. Last year his "savings" was big enough I could pay cash for a Lift Recliner when his health was failing, paying cash allowed me to take advantage of a 15% discount off the price and delivery charge.

The time before, the "savings" let me buy the needed things to make the apartment more accessible when he had surgery and pay out of pocket for his dressing change needs. To be clear, the "savings" comes from my paychecks, not his SS payments.

My prayers are on the way. for your friend. Right now she needs one to look down and care for her. I firmly believe we all have an angel that looks down on us each day.

With two kidney transplanted, she has a battle on her hands and she needs all the prayers that can be sent on their way for her. Do let her daughter know that there are folks who are sending prayers for her.

What CG said Cheryl.

I am sitting here playing stupid games on the computer listening to the news. A bad tornado in Illinois. So I was concerned about one of our members who lives in Galena. I Googled how far it was away from the tornado. Thankfully she is safe and sound. Sixty-nine miles away.
