    Salt in meatballs?

    If you don't feel like frying a sample, just cook a tiny amount in the microwave. Not much, just testing for seasonings.

    Do you give your pets gifts?

    Absolutely. My doggie, a big 70 lb mutt gets so excited when he sees the tree come up. He's like a kid, sniffing out the presents, wondering which ones are his!

    Have you put up your Christmas decorations yet?

    I'm not in the mood this year. Usually I decorate every corner. This year just a tree. I have too much going on right now and decorating would just stress me out.

    Anything left in the garden to pick??

    Pulled my pepper and tomato plants about a week ago. Basil at the same time. I'll have a lot of herbs that are perennials and can use them at least to Thanksgiving. Beautiful Indian summer this week. I'm off Wed so will pull the rest of my annuals and get my Pansies out of the pots and into...

    In Remembrance of Our Dear Friend Buck

    I agree. Katie, I think you need to get yourself out there somehow. I know it's easier said then done. I do think that reaching out will give you something to grab onto.
