RE: Handicap Parking

When waiting on a bench in the Mall, I overheard two women talking. One bragged to the other that she uses her Mother's car for shopping trips because the Mother has handicap plates.

RE: Quick Simple Dinners?

Boil a large kettle of water, add peeled carrots, small potatoes, ears of corn on the cob and ring bologna. Boil until vegetables are tender.

RE: High School Graduation Gift Ideas

Spoiled classmate of mine got a new black Pontiac GTO for high school graduation. Everyone knew his parents couldn't afford such. Wrecked it before Fall, I think.

RE: Hit the Cast Iron Jackpot

I stopped at a garage sale and I couldn't take my eyes off the dozens of CI cookware pieces hanging on the garage wall. The owner told me he had many more in the house that he uses regularly. Lucky guy !

RE: Horror Stories

Years ago we were setting up a pop-up and I put my hand up to steady myself when adjusting a curtain. DH came around the corner and pushed hard on the open door. My fingers were in the way and the sharp edges of the aluminum frame really dug in. Serious pain and my fingers throbbed for hours. I came close to going to the ER because it just wouldn't quit. After dark, it finally subsided so I took my toothbrush and headed for the shower room. It wasn't well lit, and I caught my foot on a raise in the sidewalk. I went down hard and skinned myself up. Horrible day. Another time we owned an "A" frame and we were setting it up. DH didn't turn the lock on one side and it came down on me. Fortunately I was bending over and it fell on my back instead of my head. Maybe I shouldn't go camping with him anymore !!

RE: Boondocking with small trailer

We took an A-frame to Alaska & twice we boon docked, but it was in small towns, not roadside.

RE: Romertopf Clay Cooker

Many years ago I had some kind of chicken and garlic roasting in my clay baker and the house smelled divine. Our neighbor across the street stopped in to visit, as her husband was at a convention out of town. I said "I think you should come back and eat later" and she said "I think I should too!"

RE: Have (2) ham bones - now need to make split pea soup. Help!

Split pea soup always makes me smile because I can remember Dad making it after he retired. He left all cooking to Mother but Pea Soup was "his" and he worked on it several days besides making a lot of dirty dishes (to hear Mom tell it). Now our son (his only grandson) has picked up the ball, but he makes Ham and Bean Soup.

RE: Big finds at the Thrift Store!

My "new in the box" clay baker came to be mine at an auction sale for $8. I love it for chicken and beef roasts. When I found another one, I gave it to our grandson & girlfriend. They love to cook and have fallen in love with it too.

RE: Why would anyone want a pressure cooker?

I love the extra layer of flavor PC's make but I don't have one.

RE: Any aebleskiver experts?

I grew up on them and still make them. Mine has an "apron" around the side and it's "real" cast iron. I have Mother's pan too - hers has no apron because it was designed to fit in the hole of a cook stove when the stove lid was removed. Very old. Beware of the new knock-offs in the stores (made in China). A church in my hometown makes them for a breakfast every summer and they fry them ahead of time and freeze them. 4 on a paper plate, microwave about 20 seconds, serve with sausage, syrup, butter. We roll cold ones in white sugar - great with coffee as a treat. Just a dab (about 1/2 tsp.) shortening is enough for my pan probably because it's well seasoned. Remember, add shortening EVERY time, not just for the first batch of 7. Don't over-fill the cups for best results because they will puff up. I looked so forward to eating in Solvang but I was disappointed. Nothing like home. I decided to shop the stores and I looked for "anything" made in Denmark. Found nothing, so I asked for help on this. They couldn't think of anything either. I went store to store and came up empty. HaHa. Here's the church ladies method (it's as good as the old fashioned version so I use it) 32 oz box Hungry Jack pancake mix 6 eggs 4.5 cups milk (I use evaporated milk mixed with 1/2 and 1/2) Combine lightly and let sit 20 minutes before using. Stir lightly and bake in pan heated up. I heat mine slowly and back off the heat when it begins to smoke.

Car top carrier question ?? Need advice

4 of us are taking a week trip in a small car. Of course, we'll pack light but I've been considering a roof top storage box for the car and I found a lightly used one on Craig's List. Problem is: the factory luggage racks on our car run front to back and the carrier's brackets run the same direction. Brackets are "U" shaped that bolt through holes in the box. Do I have to add another set of racks that run side to side OR (preferred) can I get adapter brackets that swivel so they can attach ? Have you had this experience ? Please advise ASAP as we need to get this done ASAP !

RE: Anybody have a locking mailbox?

Never had our mailbox bothered by anyone, but anything can happen. We never leave our mail out there overnight and I'm very selective about what I would leave out there for pick-up. Nothing with cash or check that would contain an account number. That kind of mail goes into a secure blue pick-up box. Thieves have been known to drive around and watch for mail box flags in the upright position or follow a mailman and grab the mail.

RE: Secret to a long happy marraige

FIL and MIL have been married 75 years and from what I've seen, it's not been that happy.

RE: Propane costs.

Our son just paid 5 dollars a gallon. He told his kids "get ready, because it will be a lot cooler in the house". I remember growing up in the 1950's and Mom would hang blankets over the doors to the dining room since it was seldom used and that was one way to save on heat.

RE: Are you going to watch the Olympics ?

I'll watch Opening, Closing and some outdoor events. Maybe it goes naturally with my Scandinavian blood.

RE: shootings

Just observe the violent Shoot 'em up video games. I read about a mother who went to work in the morning and her teen age son was playing video games in his pajamas. When she came home at the end of the day, he was .... playing video games in his pajamas. Doing this all day must mess up people's heads and the concept scares me to death.
