    Default Cooking and Stuff

    Worked Safeway this morning. I picked up my 'free' rotisserie chicken, free LaLa Smoothie. A bag of split peas, the only thing not on sale. Welches Fruit Snack, $5 off for 40 packets, which I'll bring to school Monday for my ELL kids that participated last week. Potatoes for split pea soup, Then got .40 cents off 'national brands' an employee incentive. All told, I got out for $9.84, savings of $14.13 Savings of 59%!

    I've got spit pea going in the crockpot. Will use up the rest of the ham I got on sale the other day. Have stripped the chicken and put meat in fridge after having a bit with leftover mashed from last night.. The bones and wilted celery, carrots, and onion are simmering on the stove, will use as chicken stock, after straining. All in all, productive day so far.

    Just got to wash greens, fruits, and veggies-put that off a day, got the fridge defrosted last night. I've never had a fridge that needed defrosting, I remember mom doing it with an old Philco.
    @jimnyc I got a toy about a year ago, just getting around to really playing with it now. Been using it alot for soups and smoothies. It's just fun!

    I am SO tired of seeing that dang pressure cooker thingy. My wife uses that thing like 14 times per week, and I get to wash it every time, or have to learn how to use the damn thing if it's me making dinner that night. And every time I put it away in the closet, I hide it further and further in the back, but it does nothing, she finds it or demands it daily. I've created a monster with that damn thing. I may have to figure out a way I can "accidentally" break it like I did the last one.
    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.

    Take a look at the immersion blender, way less space than blender and food processor! Fun too!

    That wand looking thing looks cool, only because of the smoothies I see in the picture. But I know it won't be just that easy, and I'll never get it right.

    It is that easy. No transferring hot items from pot to food processor. Put the wand in, it's like silk if you leave it in; or just a bit to break or large pieces. It's also fun!
