    How much was it like for $100 in the late 70's?

    $1.25 per hour was my first pay. and I worked my tail of for it. It took a good 12 hours to cut and rake the huge lawn owned by my mother's layer boss, on the river of course, where it grew lush, and thick very quickly. Gas was .40 per gallon. I had a little Honda motorcycle that gave me 100...

    Buy early for Thanksgiving?

    If you've never tried them, mashed rutabagas with butter, a touch of brown sugar, and pepper were traditional at our Thanksgiving meal, and taste amazing. I do love a properly cooked sweet potato, or sweet potato casserole, but the stars of the show were the mashed potatoes, bread dressings...

    Spaghetti sauce help

    I agree. For drying, or freezing, I was talking about newly made sauce, not the questionable sauce. Sorry for not being more clear.

    Spaghetti sauce help

    I too would not trust what you under processed. However, if you want to save space, you can dry your sauce on a sheet pam in a low oven, them vacuum seal, or in a dehydrator. The dried tomato sauce is shelf stable. It's like making fruit leather. If you have the storage space, start over...

    Sausage with skin?

    Jimmy Dean Heat & Serve breakfast links are shaped like sausage links, sans casings. They are pretty good. I do prefer a natural casing as it makes for juicier sausage, Imho. It's also very easy to find 1 lb. tubes of bulk Italian, and breakfast sausage at most U.S. grocers. Simply ask a...
