    What's your weather right now? 2024 Edition

    Trouble with a heavy storm after a drought is that the soil can't absorb the water it needs before it all runs off.

    Garden 2024

    Rodentraiser - you do realize that the gladiolus and dahlias should be taken out of the ground for the winter? I know Washington State is borderline weather for leaving them in but I think from what you've mentioned about your winters... well, if you ever put more in, keep in mind it is best to...

    I think I could pass on the 100 markers. This humidity at 90 is plenty enough for me.

    What's your weather right now? 2024 Edition

    Pretty much the same here. 90's yesterday and today. Wicked storm dropped out of no-where early morning (around 4am) no one was expecting it. Didn't cool anything. Just more humidity. More storms tonight. Weds - high 80's, Thurs - low 80's, Fri and the weekend bouncing up and down in the 70's.

    Here they are! and here is the iteresting story behind the chicken bones. They are rolled by hand! Check it out! I guess it's no surprise we had them as kids as my dad was from St John, NewBrunswick. He probably had them too!

    Can we candy coat fudge?

    We have a type called chicken bones. Thin centre of chocolate was coated in a thin crunchy pink candy with a cinnamon taste. My kids always knew that was the perfect Birthday/Christmas gift for me - LOL nothing else needed. Always had them in our Christmas Stocking Candy since I was a...

    Pan Rosted Chicken Thigh sitting on a Poblano with a mushroom cap, chunks of carrot and potatoes. Surprisingly delicious - one of my throw it on a pan and hope it's edible suppers.

    Can we candy coat fudge?

    If you could 'flash freeze' the fudge then you could coat it with the hot candy. (in theory at least)

    What are you doing?

    We had a party line at the cottage but a private one in town. We were lucky as that even though it was a party line, we had a phone, whereas 90% of the other cottages didn't. When we came back from Europe and winterized the cottage then it was a private line. You got what you paid for! In...

    Today's Funny

    The Black-Eyed Peas can sing us a song ...But the chick peas can only hummus one. Then there was the time Fruit of the Loom took Hanes to court... It was a brief case. How much does a chimney cost? Nothing, it's on the house. My friend said she wouldn't eat cow's tongue because it came out...

    Saturday night dinner, June 15, 2024

    Went to a restaurant I've mentioned before with my bro and SIL, Twisted Fork. Have to say it was the first meal I've had there that was not WOW. Creamy Tuscan Chicken in a White Wine Sauce with Mushrooms, Spinach and tomatoes. A side of Fresh Steamed Vegies (Carrots, Zuchini, Broccoli) and...

    What's your take on protein powder?

    Carbs first.... hmmm - remember when you used to go into restaurant and the first thing on the table was the breadsticks and butter or buns and butter? You ate these while waiting for you meal. No wonder restaurant meals help you put on weight and get you into basically bad habits.

    Stouffer's Family-Sized Swedish Meatballs

    True, but their famous "iconic" ones were much later and I only had them because someone said they were amazing. The following is from their website:- The birth of an icon We've been serving food at IKEA stores since the 1960s, but in 1985 Swedish chef Severin Sjöstedt created a meatball that...

    Stouffer's Family-Sized Swedish Meatballs

    Had to look it up, thinking that I'd first tried Ikea's 'Swedish Meatballs' in the late 70's but, LOL, obviously I was way off as they only started selling them in '85. Shortly after that I had them at my mom's from a small house store cook. And they were always with a Cream of Mushroom...

    Frozen Prunes

    Like you taxy I'm not particularly fond of sweet with savoury. Once in awhile is OK. Prunes are better at the sweet than dates for sure.
