    Dean foods files for bankruptcy

    One of my millennial friends at work just bought a condo. His dad has done all the updates and fixes for him. One day he had meatballs and mustard for lunch because that was all he had in his refrigerator and "going to the store and buying food seems like a waste of time and money." His mom...

    Dean foods files for bankruptcy

    I put myself through college and managed to do so without any student loans. However, there were some casualties: peanut butter being the biggest one and bratwurst being the oddest, lol. After paying rent, tuition, electric and phone bills there was not much left for groceries. Peanut butter...

    Dean foods files for bankruptcy

    Its not the French Onion Dip that is doing me in, it is all the potato chips that I eat with it. I probably wouldn't have a problem if I used carrots to dip. I drink 2% milk, my DH says that I am trying to kill him and he wants Skim. I would buy whole milk, but that is totally not-acceptable...

    Congrat's to Ron. His first ever, or just for the year? That will be tasty meat in the freezer. I found the perfect meatloaf recipe for venison if you are interested. It has ketchup in the meatloaf and is topped with a brownsugar/mustard sauce and baked.

    Beer Home Brewing Calendar

    I had to Google the calendar to really see it clearly enough to understand it. It is a pretty neat tool to have. I am going to send a copy to a friend in Oregon who home brews.

    i will have to have my beer drinking friends give me their opinion on the calendar - I don't like beer anytime. Well, actually, I can drink one can if I have been working hard on a hot day.

    My $1700.00 Deer

    My truck has been having intermittent vibrations that I can feel through the steering wheel for a good part of the summer. At first, DH didn't believe me, then he borrowed it for a 4 hour trip and came back saying I know what you mean now... I said I needed new tires, he said you just need to...

    junk pole fence

    I think Osage Orange is used for living fences. Planted 1 foot apart, it grows so dense it is "horse high, hog tight, and bull strong". Quoted from an article on Mother Earth News.

    Simply Sheep

    I was happy to see that the "Food Stamps" system in the US (now called SNAP, I guess) now includes the purchase of seeds and plants for the production of food. Not sure how many on the SNAP program will take advantage of it, but at least the idea is there.
