RE: Tomato Juice

I transfer TJ to GLASS juice pitcher with a lid. It's actually an old powdered Tang pitcher that was in Mom's stuff. Keeps just fine, at least I think it does. I never look, maybe I better keep an eye out, huh? I'm partial to glass over plastic. It's a given some plastic isn't that good for food.

RE: What's your favorite spaghetti sauce?

I want the brand with the lowest sugar content so I read labels.

RE: 2 burner gas stove recommendations

I was impressed with a friends new coleman stove but you might want to consider an induction burner like the nu wave also. Coleman Thanks for your suggestion. I've researched this 2 burner stove now and most likely will get one.

2 burner gas stove recommendations

Not going to take our little Weber along this winter. Not big grillers at home either. Plan to get a camp stove (2 burner gas stove) to cook outside. We'll connect the 2 burner to the RV gas tanks with a hose we already have. As for inside, I have a Geo. Foreman grill and crockpots. We've looked at camp stove possibilities, but made no decision yet.

RE: Frost/Ice build up Dometic Refrigerator

Another approach to frost buildup is to "head it off at the pass." Warm air can enter the cabinet through the drain tube and contribute substantially to the problem. The simple solution is to extend the drain tube 8-10" with some appropriate tubing and a barbed connector and form it into a loop creating the equivalent of a p-trap. The tube will drain normally and the bit of water trapped in the loop will block any warm air from entering the cabinet. The difference was quite dramatic for very little cost and effort. We just went through this with our 3 year old house refrigerator. Bottom freezer was getting a sheet of ice on the floor of the freezer again and again. About the same time the ice maker died so we assumed it was hand in hand but the ice sheet kept coming after we cut off the water supply. We talked to the appliance store and they admitted this was a problem caused by the defrost drain tube. A newer style drain tube would be covered by warranty but the service call to install it was $100. We decided to get the part and try it outselves. It turned out to be a 15 minute job, and that included removing and replacing the back panel. Problem solved.

2 Ingredient Hot Dish

A favorite when we need something hot to eat and need it fast ! Good quality box of macaroni and cheese, prepared as directed. 1# hamburger browned. Drain grease and mix with macaroni and cheese. Ready to eat. OK, it's a 3 ingredient meal if you brown the hamburger with onions.

RE: Not my mail

On our street, 4 houses have mailboxes together on 1 post. The young Mother up the street lets her small children get the mail and the little darlings bring mail from all 4 boxes home. She keeps her mail and lets the other lay around in her house for a few days then she brings it to the rightful owner. People have suggested she put a sticker on her own box so the kids recognize it but she doesn't get it. So far, our box is not included, but if they migrate to us, we will be at the door and do a little stern talking. Ridiculous.

RE: What Does Autumn Mean to You in the Kitchen?

Just put in the freezer: 13 bags apples, 10 bags shredded zucchini, mashed winter squash, some tomato juice. Always got a pail of bones and vegetable cuttings ready to make stock. Got a few frozen peaches from last year and should make jam to give away.

RE: Not my mail

Years ago, we had a neighbor that lived 1/2 mile from us. He had the exact same name as Dad except one's middle initial was E and the other was F, so that was really close. This was back when the only address was "Route 2". I think everyone had a box number too but hardly anyone used them. Poor mailman did the best he could but it was a nightmare most of the year and when Christmas mail came, he often put the whole mess in our mailbox and let us put what wasn't ours back in the mailbox to be picked up by him the next day.

RE: Question for all the shaved headed men out there.

SIL shaves his head and face, looks amazing. DH has hair, but never gets it cut short enough or often enough for me.

RE: Canned food storage

Mostly I use frozen vegetables, I can pour out what I want. This may be strange, but I even open chili beans, diced tomatoes, etc and pour them into freezer containers. At least when we travel through cold areas, I don't worry about cans bursting.

RE: Microwave Oatmeal

Thanks for the suggestions. I wonder if I can also apply your directions using steel cut oats? I suppose it would take longer to cook, but I can get along with regular oats just fine. Here's another thought. How about cream of wheat? And,yes. As one of you mentioned, easier cleanup. I have use of only my right arm at this time, so not having to scrub a pot is a big plus.;) When I made steel cut oatmeal, I cook up either 1/2 pkg or whole pkg with chopped dried fruit and store it in a plastic container. It reheats in microwave just fine and I only have to cook/clean up once. I think it can be made overnight in a crockpot too, but I've never done it.

RE: Algodones, Mx dentist

DIL is USA dental assistant. She tells of patients with Mexican dental work discovering problems after returning home. One patient even demanded her work be fixed "at no charge" !! That didn't happen.
