Y'know, at Disney's California Adventure, they have a Mission Tortilla Plant, where you learn about how they make 'em, then you watch the process. When you're done, you get a sample that's "hot off the presses" - YUM!

That does sound yummy. I have not been to Southern CA for awhile. The last time I was there was for a friends 30th. birthday party. That was in 2001.

Yes I do it all the time. I go into the store for 10 items and come out with 50 so this is why I send my daughter to do my shopping anymore.

I used to shop on Saturday's too. Then realized what a busy shopping day it was, & changed my strategy. Found when I shopped during the week or after 6:00 PM, the store was much less crowded. Better still, is shopping after midnight. No lines, no crowds.
My reason for shopping on staurday is so I can take my mom with me..We really don't want her to drive anymore,(sh is very very forgetful and gets lost easy) and I do go early so I can hit the bread that has just been brought in from the bakery. I love ciabatta, sour dough, french, and don't always have time to make it now.
I have written down many recipes for the kids and would be happy to share here if anyone see's anything I mention and would like it, I'll gladly post the recipe.
Your gramma sounds like one great cook..I remember going to my grandma's both of then even and loved anything they made for us. Although my mom's dad did most of the cooking and it was Italian based :) gramma made mean cookies and pies :)
gotta run ravioli sauce needs checking It's for my grandsons first birthday party this saturday

i went to Giant Eagle to get a steak, some French Pyreness, a jar of devonshire cream, whipping cream, and some ice cream.
i ended up spending $125.
i do this clothes and Wal-mart shopping, too.
i'll go into the mall for a tank top and some body spray and spend $300.
i'll go to wal-mart for some popsicles and some nail polish and i'll come out with a cartful of groceries and goodies.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-
