Afternoon all. Weather is just glorious here mid-NJ.
NoStars - praying for you & Hubs. Sorry that placement for Nan is held up for C19. Such a difficulty at this time for you. How is Hubs doing?
herring - I love some Lean Cuisine meals. Just wish my favs had larger portions; not really doubled, but maybe 1 & 1/2 quantity.
dianah - thanks. I've seen those single cakes. Nice, but nice & EXPENSIVE.
Tweety - I have a quickie easy home recipe for single cake servings.
Combine 1 box any flavor cake mix and 1 box Angel Food cake mix (the kind you only mix with water). The dehydr egg white ingredient provides 'lift' for the cooked cake batter. In a big microwave mug, use 1/4 c mixed mix, add 3 tbsp water & stir well. Nuke it on high for 65 secs. Voila! Done!
Let it cool if you can wait that long. Top it with whatever. I have a bottle of caramel syrup. Just don't try to add more cake mix trying to make 'more cake'. Doesn't work right. It's not a whole lot, but it does just appease the sweet craving. I prefer Spice cake mix to mix with the Angel Food. A big baggie with the mix looks like a mighty suspicious bag of 'dust' on the countertop.
I do have to say those choc brownies are muy bueno. Want to make another batch but this time to use up the stewed prunes & apricots as I over-made a batch. Love using my crockpots. Just dump & let it cook. Worst part is storing any extras and then clean-up. Thinking of making a crab spaghetti sauce. My Mom made it during the summer time - plan to experiment with my CP again. And want to experiment with anise seed. I've fallen in love with rosemary
Threw some laundry in. I can manage the 'in washer' OK; the 'washer to dryer' semi-OK; but to empty the dryer & carry items to my BR is difficult. I have a housekeeper HHA companion to help with domestic tasks, so I manage.
j22 - how's the arm? And I do understand your exasperation with dummy deny-ers. I would never wish any negatives to befall them, but you're right. Unless C19 hits them, and hits them H A R D, will they THEN truly understand. It's just like what Tweety is seeing in his communities. Don't you just want to SMACK them?!?!
I fear this relaxation of precautions as still too early. And that's with mixed emotions as I read of y'all being frustrated with the restrictions in your lives. It is affecting us all, but all in different ways. Sigh ....
