Small progress

We are still cleaning out DH's house. There is a little happening every weekend we're there, and if we had six or seven months to do it all, we'd be in fine shape. Unfortunately, the closing looks like it will be in May and possession at the end of [more]

Re: RIP Leonard Nimoy

Damn, I am so sorry to see him go.

From the time I first saw Star Trek when I was in about second grade, I always wanted to be Spock and have a friend like Kirk. As Nimoy's portrayal of Spock matured, I only found that to be more [more]

Re: LBYM Dinner this evening

We did something similar last night, though I don't remember the costs. Got a big package of boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Not for economy reasons, but because that was the least-processed, most-free-range of the meats available that day. [more]

Re: dead in here

Just like Detroit, it might be a good idea for the Fool to do some demolition and get people consolidated so that conversation is still lively. Err, except on the political boards, which would be best removed altogether.

ThyPeace, you know [more]

Re: They have returned

It's snowing here today, but not quite so bitterly cold. Then again, as I told DH, I should already have planted the peas and radishes. Not as bad as last year, certainly, but this has still been a very cold and winter for my area. Not, thank [more]

Re: Day 1, No Sweets (19 hours)

Oh, frozen well pump sounds like a pain! So sorry to hear it. And sorry that heat tape won't help! That was my first thought before I read the parentheses.

Mini-crises are great to keep your adrenaline pumping and your focus high, but when [more]

An Open Letter

Dear World,

Four months old is way too young to be in the ICU. And my brother and his wife are too new at parenting for this level of worry. So how about if we heal my nephew and his bronchiols as quickly as possible?

ThyPeace, [more]

Re: Day 1, No Sweets (19 hours)

My experience is that it's hard to quit sugar. But not impossible. I had to do a lot of trying before I found the right combination of things that worked for me. So my first piece of advice is to keep trying stuff -- don't give up when something [more]

Re: tired of plain boring veggies?

Grilled eggplant is one of the best things on the planet.

How can you do it in an oven? Every time I try I get thin slabs of shoe leather.

I haven't tried the same thing in the oven, so am not entirely sure. But I [more]

Re: tired of plain boring veggies?

The best alternative to plain boring veggies, in my mind, is to put them on a grill after oil, salt, and pepper. Grilled eggplant is one of the best things on the planet. Grilled-anything-else is close behind.

And if you want dessert, try [more]

Re: Snow

I read today that Boston has had 89 inches of snow so far this year. I then went and looked to see how much my part of DC had during the Snowmageddon year. And now all I can say is, Wow. I really feel for you.

Re: OT: Is this something all teenagers do?

Thanks for web site references, everyone who provided them. I will definitely be doing some researching.

OT: Is this something all teenagers do?

I realize this is the wrong board, but hey, y'all know a lot about food.

DD has decided that she wants to be a vegetarian. Mostly this is because I insist that she have some protein at every meal. She has decided that even a hamburger or [more]

Re: Whole 30

I think it's one of those "it depends" sorts of answers. For me, sweets and sugar were and are a big deal. I eliminated sweets right after dairy, and before any attempt to tackle other food issues. So when I started my Whole 30, I was [more]

Re: What I'd like to see

I have read many of these and agree with a lot of them. One to add:

Guy Gavriel Kay -- A Song for Arbonne

Kay is one of the best sheer writers I have ever read. His prose is utterly lovely.

Agent Carter

Anyone else watching Agent Carter? I'm enjoying it thoroughly. I'm not old enough, nor enough of a history buff, to know how accurately it portrays the post-WWII era. But I'm loving the characters' interactions. It was definitely a different [more]

This conversation is very helpful to me.

Our next step in the Great Household Consolidation is, of course, getting rid of stuff that will not fit into my smaller house. Part of that is clearing things out of my house. My house has lots of [more]

These days, my breakfasts are 3 scrambled eggs with a bunch of sauteed vegetables and half (or so) of a potato. With a side of some fruit.
