After clashes with Police, protests have caused Westlake Center to close 3 hours early. Demonstrators were very present during tree lighting ceremony and as I heard on the news, shoppers just started going home. A number of arrests but the message got across.

Making the green tomato "mincemeat"-My house smells glorious!

It wasn't a bumper crop for green tomatoes this year, just enough to fill the large slow cooker. I will have enough for at least a cake and a few batches of cookies. If you haven't tried making this yet and still wondering what to do with your greenies, the recipe from All Recipies is my go to and very forgiving. Just use what you have on hand and adjust a bit. You really don't have to worry too much about measuring...I eyeball it all and I never had a bad batch. Some years I have so many greenies I make it in the big Nesco roaster.


The complete recipe is for the pie. But i just make the filling and freeze it for later. Google recipes for mincemeat cookies or cake and you are ready to bake.

Anyone use lidocaine patches for pain?

I picked up my first box today and will try one tomorrow. 12 hours on then 12 hours off. Did you find it helpful for back and nerve pain?

Keeping that half of the avocado green...A New Method!

I admit to rarely having this problem as we scarf those things down as soon as we cut them...but this was a new method I had never seen before. Store your half an avocado with onion! Anyone try this?

Sweet and Healthy dinner for One...

Last night SO was out so I was fending for myself. I roasted a sweet potato in foil then topped it with a bit of butter, two spoonfuls of Ricotta Cheese and an apple I diced up fine in the food processor. I topped it with a bit of Maple Syrup.... It felt like desert for dinner..... Next time I might add a crumble of bacon.... Just because.
