Re: Bothell House Sold

I confess, I first read the subject as "brothel house sold." Sure got me to click on the post, the first time in many posts.

Re: The Great Cereal Experiment

Another temptation trumped - I do miss granola bars from the carb days, now I have a solution. I only wonder if I need to add more egg white to get sufficient binding power for a bar?

And some fines. I added some almond meal last [more]

Re: My Financial Advisor (update 1)

Unfortunately the Vanguard assets were sold and have been sitting in cash for two months. Even worse, my daughter's UTMA account netted $9k in capital gains which will result in taxes this year. We likely would have paid those taxes at some point, [more]

Re: Non-alcoholic fatty liver: low carb diet

You do understand that the Mediterranean diet isn't really a low carb diet, right?

I personally follow a low glycemic Mediterranean style diet, though I do not skimp on eggs, avoid grains and eat minimal beans.

Re: Letter from IRS

There have been numerous idiocies by either the IRS or those providing documentation, (or not doing so in this case,) that we have stopped having those OMG moments when we see the return address. It's more of a what a PITA moment now.

Passes the overnight storage test with flying colors, although I had to remove the container from DH's hands last night to make sure there would be some left in the morning to try. This will definitely be our cereal recipe of choice for the time [more]

Re: Vinyl versus Steel

The windows in my current house are builder quality and as you describe. The top glass is fixed. Only the bottom half folds in for cleaning and has a screen. I think these are single hung windows. Double hung means two movable glass [more]

Costco's Almond Flour

Re: Non-alcoholic fatty liver: low carb diet

Carbs truly are addictive.

For some, absolutely, but I do not think for all, just as not all have the same reaction to drugs and alcohol. I did my share of dabbling where I should not have gone as a teen, and lucky for me my body was [more]

Re: Vinyl versus Steel

The bungalow-style home I grew up in, built in 1920, had solid cedar siding and I drive by that house all the time. The siding looks the same as it did in the 1920's and in the 1960's. Of course today cost would probably be prohibitive I [more]

Re: Non-alcoholic fatty liver: low carb diet

Ain't it the truth. They are surrounded by a toxic food environment just like we are, and the challenge is greater because they tend not to cook for themselves and just grab stuff on the run... and since carbs are addictive, they then feel the [more]

Re: The Great Cereal Experiment

Egg and oil: seems to me these would run counter to your crunchiness objective. I guess you are including the egg in order to bind the cereal into squares. Would you consider skipping that squaring/baking step and thus leaving out the [more]
