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.

Chicken skewers - advice please ?

This is new to me so I am asking for advice please. I'll cut chicken breast into chunks then skewer BEFORE or AFTER marinating ?? Will I bake them for a while then finish on the grill or straight to the grill ?? Planning this in addition to ham for Easter menu.

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.

RE: Beyond Bread Pudding and French Toast

Mom tossed left over bread in a cake pan and stored it in the oven. Eventually it got dry and she crushed it with a rolling pin. She mixed it with sugar and melted butter and "toasted" it in a hot cast iron frying pan. When done, she put a layer of crumbs on her biggest platter, then a layer of applesauce and another layer of crumbs. Topped with real whipped cream and a few dabs of red jelly to make it pretty. It got passed around and everyone took what they wanted. It doesn't keep well. I've attempted to make it, but my crumbs get soggy and it doesn't taste or look like hers.

RE: Laundry

There's a product made by Purex. Sheets come in a box. Throw a sheet in the washer, then same sheet follows the clothes to the dryer. Detergent, Fabric Softener and Wrinkle Stop all in one !

RE: Tide Laundry Bar soap?

Tide makes laundry bar soap for underdeveloped countries or places where washing machines are in short supply. It beats scrubbing the clothes with sand down by the river... Do you suppose their Tide is as costly as ours ? It's gotten crazy expensive.

RE: Sams Club?

We've used a school parking lot when school wasn't in session. Didn't see a soul come or go in the short time we were there. I've heard of using a church parking lot and the camper put some money in an envelope and left it with the Pastor for the collection plate.

RE: great times in our 13ft trailer

We tweaked our 12 foot A frame and used it for 2 extended trips (8 weeks total) then we traded it in for a 18 ft. TT. I'd go back to the A frame in a heartbeat !

RE: Mail while snowbirding

My experience is that post office forwarding is extremely unreliable. As my carrier explained it to me, when you fill out the forwarding form a note is sent to the carrier. They may not read it. Or there me be a sub one day, who has no idea of the form you filled out months earlier. Or two carriers may share your route and only one of them gets the note. When I go, I put a note (and I use a whole sheet of paper, not a little scrap of paper that can easily get misplaced) and explain in detail (1) last day to deliver (2) day to resume delivery, if known. (3) I sign it with a return address sticker and leave it in our mailbox. Our carrier and his substitute take care of it, no problem - ever.

RE: People in their mid 60's got a question

Smaller portions paired with healthy snacks (mid morning & mid afternoon) are important, I think. Steam an entire bag of fresh green beans or baby carrots and keep them in a glass quart jars. Measure out portions of nuts and dried fruit into small bags. Growing up, soda was a treat once a week so we try to follow that and we limit eating out to 1 breakfast and 1 lunch per week.

RE: People in their mid 60's got a question

It was a big change and didn't feel right for a while, but we've switched to meat and lots of veggies which are raw or cooked. Potatoes, pasta and bread are almost gone from our house. I steam whole bags of vegs and store them in qt. jars in refrig. Eat them cold on salad or warmed up with meat.

RE: Dropping Sams Club after 20+ years

I've found that none of the warehouse stores are good for perishables when there's only two. I still buy a lot of bulk items there because it is cheaper but it's mostly things like water, paper goods, etc. Their price on my preferred wine is unbeatable. And they are incredible less expensive for over-the-counter meds like Advil and vitamins. Hubby takes fish oil pills are they are almost 50% cheaper than anywhere else. Our heart doctor says all fish oil pills are not the same. Just sayin'

RE: Make ahead and freeze

Pork loin made into thick chops or chicken breasts. Season, bake on a rimmed cookie sheet then package for freezer. I use parchment paper and clean up is a breeze. Steam a whole package of baby carrots, fresh green beans or any vegetable. Store in a glass quart jar so it's easy to spot when you open the refrig door.

RE: Cauliflower Salad

A million Thanks for posting this ! I made it last night and it's very good. I used diced celery since I had no relish. Any more low carb recipes or tips will be welcome ! I have an electric steamer and I steam a whole bag of baby carrots or fresh green beans then store them in quart glass jars in the refrig. Easy to spot and we eat them on leaf salads or warm them up and eat with meat. Pumps up our veg consumption. Our Doctor says eat 5 to 6 cups of vegs per day !! I actually store a lot of things in glass jars. I recycle plastic peanut butter jars but not the lids - they will fit narrow mouth jars.

RE: Cost of beef

Pork sausage and ground beef worry me. Never know what "parts" are ground in there. Just sayin'

RE: Potato Bombs

"Pork Chops on a Stick": Pork loin sliced into chops. Half inch wooden dowels, cut into sticks. Sharpen with a pencil sharpener and stick into side of chops. Marinate or season to taste. Grill & Enjoy!

RE: Cost of beef

In 2008, we were in Hawaii for 10 days and noticed many people had chicken coops and we figured out why when we saw the price of eggs and chicken in the grocery stores.

RE: Cost of beef

Put the corn back into feed and not ethanol.Use the glut of cheap and surplus oil,stop importing oil from off shore,use North american resources. Feeder cattle eat distillers grain (by product from making ethanol) and they love it. It's more nutritious than grain. That's using the grain twice.

RE: Stripping latex paint experience

If the oil wasn't prepped correctly the latex should just peal off with a plastic scraper. You can also prep the old oil paint with a product called"liquid sandpaper" OK. Thanks

RE: Stripping latex paint experience

If you would rather use latex, after stipping what was put on so you have a smooth surface again, paint a coat of Zinser sealant, then paint with latex. Thanks for that.
