Greetings from the NRA

That’s the National Restaurant Association’s annual celebration of all things food-related.  Gluttony to go!  So far I haven’t seen any hot new food trends, but quite a few tech ideas.  As well as long lines of people waiting for a free hot dog.  sigh…

Coke didn’t have their holographic cups this year (boo!), Wild Planet has cans of tuna with no liquid, lots of fancy breads and rolls to take and freeze, shelf-stable heavy cream is very interesting to me, given all the cooking (playing around) I do.  Tomorrow is the last day, or as I like to call it The Back Up The Truck Day, since it’s cost-prohibitive for many companies to ship back much of their products.  I’ll definitely be bringing back tea and mayhap a bit of cheese.  Some rocking English jams – – rep said the Queen comes in on Fridays to make it, but I have my doubts.

Now if FirstBorn could only find pizza to fill those boxes…

Flood Houses coming down

unnamed (9)

So sad…owner finally gave up trying to coordinate permits and bank funds – – county is taking it down.  But even four years after it was abandoned (2013 Flood), it was still standing strong.  They certainly don’t build them like that any more…

Wonder if next month’s elections and the demolitions are somehow connected…

It’s Recycling Guy Hates Me Day!

unnamed-10 unnamed-11 unnamed-12Three Full Containers of Inserts!  Don’t know what to keep and what to toss?  Use the handy-handy insert checker on the lower righthand side.  It shows what insert is completely dead and which one still has valid coupons (by expiration date).  I always go through that one insert to see if the valid coupon is something I would ever use (think water softener salt) before keeping.  And yes, I get a lot of inserts and my floor is breathing a sigh of relief…
