  1. If I weren't feeling so lazy, I'd go get my Constitution and articulate all the parts I (a non-lawyer) think he violated. Let's just say, he violated his oath of office and yes, "russian agent" b/c they hold his loans. (and balls. can I say that here?)
  2. Last night I made a salad from my garden; only stuff from it. One lovely romaine lettuce. One plump but short carrot. Four edible flours. A little herb mixture for 3 of us and some rocket arugula for the pepper lovers. EVOO + Balsamic. I served other stuff but only this was worth mentioning. Kids ATE IT UP! In other news, I just made beef/chicken/pork broth and my 6 yr old keeps asking for "tastes". She's going to eat it all if I let her! I'm about to attempt a mushroom barley broth soup. We'll see if i succeed.
  3. I'm really local and really unemployed. I'm going to see if I can get a felony conviction real quick.
  4. Re toilets in China. I went to Japan and China in '99 and met my first hole in the ground. Good ones are great! So much better than many US bathrooms. Now the communal ones, I wasn't a fan. I vividly remember and old lady and her under 10 grand child watching me do my business. At first I was going to leave but then thought, hell, I might be the only white women they ever see semi-nude...and they watched, unabashedly. So drasisk, you inspired oversharing. 🙂
  5. Husband can't remember and I haven't gotten the credit card bill yet. Sorry. I was so crab deprived that it wouldn't have mattered but they were very touch-free.
  6. Somebody mentioned Big Buns upthread and I made that for lunch today. AMAZING crab cake. Kids loved kid burgers and talked about how great food is when you haven't had it for awhile. All good.
  7. YOu are so right. THey are bland. bacon; hocks, andouille. Not enough. Needed more ham. Trying family tricks now. WIsh me luck.
  8. I am making Red Beans and Rice. I have three pork products in there so hoping for the best.
  9. My FIL and his boat are headed your way. Would love to know others that are up and distant. They are both in their 60s and one is immunocompromised.
  10. Did Annapolis for crabs. Totally touch free and yum.
  11. Thanks for asking! About 6 in the ground in a bad part of our yard that doesn't get much sun so we'll see. Nothing else will grow there. Two others are in grow bags. I did one grow bag with actual seed potatoes and the other pot with real potatoes that grew. You see, I am "homeschooling" science. I'm really proud of my experiments. I did it once before and kids LOVE harvesting them. My 3 year old (at the time) and his friend got so dirty. They had a blast. I did "5g grow bags" (your search term) with potting soil. You Tube has LOTS of videos. (how to grow potatoes in a bag). Easy!
