RE: Pets in a Resturant

Farmers Market has many signs "No Animals" (due to State Health rules). One man was proudly walking around on Saturday with his barking and disruptive dog. It almost tripped people and he's oblivious to it. Weather was cool and the dog would have been fine in the car. I love animals, but do they belong everywhere?

Another cast iron pan question

My cast iron problem is not rusty but really gunky with baked on grease and oil. Very gunky. Will oven cleaner, plastic bag and a plastic scrubber clean it up?

RE: You just cannot fix stupid

When in Hawaii, we stopped to watch the ferocious waves crashing in on high rocks. We were in a safe area, but we saw a man and his little children standing out on those slick rocks. They were close to the edge and getting sprayed with water and laughing it up. We moved on immediately because we didn't want to witness this stupid act. When we read about horrendous things happening, there's often more to the story.

RE: Food poisoning

I know people who ended up in the hospital so be careful. I hope someone checking on you.

RE: Ordered Andersen leveler--but not from Walmart

Wally World is my store of last resort. For starters, whatever I'm looking for is in the back of the store. And it seems that returned items are just taped shut and put back on the shelf. Maybe several times until somebody just keeps it because its too much trouble to return it. "Last resort" x2

RE: Sheets for an RV-Queen bed

I shortened the fitted sheet 6" and it fits. I sewed a 3 inch seam from side to side. This actually makes the sheet 6 inches shorter (3"+3"). I trimmed it to about an inch from the sewing line and enclosed the seam. Fits perfectly.

RE: bed sheets

We have the camper sheets from amazon (seller ab lifestyles) and the top sheet is fitted at the foot end with 2 of the same elastic corners as the bottom fitted sheet has on all 4. Stays put at the bottom so far I must say they should have designed them like this years ago. I altered both the top and bottom sheets: I positioned the TOP sheet on the bed and folded the sheet corners at the foot of the bed to resemble a fitted sheet then took it to the sewing machine and stitched. Our RV mattress is 6" shorter than the mattress at home so I sewed a 3" seam across the BOTTOM sheet to shorten it. I cut the excess off and enclosed the seam. Both fit perfect and stay put.

Low Carb Chicken Dish

In shallow bowl mix 1/3 cup low fat buttermilk or evaporated milk, 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives, 1 tsp. Dijon mustard, 1/4 tsp. hot sauce. Soak 4 chicken breasts in milk mixture for several hours and drain. (set a wire rack across the sink and place meat on rack to drain) In plastic bag, combine 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. black pepper, some Italian seasoning, parsley, lemon pepper (your choice). Add meat and shake well to coat. Move to sprayed oven safe dish. Bake 40 to 45 minutes uncovered.

Vegetable "Lasagna" (low carb)

1 spaghetti squash, cut in half and seeds removed. Microwave or bake until done. Flake out flesh with a fork and set aside in a colander to drain. Heat 2 Tblsp. olive oil in large fry pan then add and sauté: 1 diced pepper (any color), 1 diced small zucchini, 1 shredded carrot, 2 minced garlic cloves. Cook about 5 minutes and drain if needed. Add spaghetti squash to vegetable mixture. Then add 1 diced tomato, 8 oz can of tomato sauce, 4 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese. Pour in oven safe dish. Sprinkle a little extra cheese on top. Bake 30 minutes, let it rest 5 minutes and serve. Almost anything works: fresh basil, left over broccoli/cauliflower, onion. I dice the pieces larger rather than smaller.

RE: Littering and it's effect on wildlife

When snow melted, we noticed a dead cat in the fence line. He had his head stuck in a peanut butter jar and evidently suffocated.

RE: Incredibly tasting Frozen No-bake berry cheese cake.

Mix in a bowl on medium speed: 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup powdered sugar 1 tsp. almond extract 2 tsp. milk 8 oz carton frozen whipped topping Spread in a pre-made graham cracker pie crust. Open a can of cherry pie filling and stir in 1 tsp. almond extract. Spread this over the cream cheese mixture. The crust should have a clear protective cover so turn it upside down so it forms a dome over the dessert and chill. Substitute: blueberry pie filling and lemon extract 1 can pie filling is actually enough for 2 desserts.

RE: Poultry ban

We were through Customs 7 times in 2006 and each one was completely different. Example: one examined our hitch for what seemed like 10 minutes and the next Customs never even glanced at it.

RE: Food with history

We witnessed an adorable elderly couple sharing a rotisserie chicken supper at a table outdoors. Vintage tablecloth as well as the soft music they had playing. It was so peaceful.

RE: Good reminder!

2 separate checklists for Outside and Inside. Each is kept in a plastic sleeve and we review them as the last thing before we move. Outside list is kept in truck glove compartment and Inside list is kept in the camper.

RE: Didja ever...

(1) hated living room color after I painted it. DH said "it's only paint, go get something else" so I did. (2) painted kitchen, decided this is not right so went back to paint store and the girls there held my hand and tweaked the color a little - loved it. (3) painted lower level bedroom same as family room but seemed too dark so bought more paint and made it lighter. As you can see, I'm good for the paint business.

RE: Question on shower mod

Shower gel is a bottle with a built in hook on top so it hangs over the shower rod or over top edge of shower stall wall. I'll refill it as it goes empty. Looking for more like that for other products.

RE: Quick road food

Dark bread and a jar of cheese whiz, celery sticks and a jar of peanut butter, grapes, mandarin oranges are all good travelers. Set the crockpot up with some type of meat before you walk out in the morning and you have a head start on dinner when you get home.

RE: The 'Deviled' is in the details

A family member told me the caterer for her daughter's wedding quoted her $50 for a dozen deviled eggs! Needless to say, they didn't order them.
