And YOU have a prime version of it???

Oh, I would hardly call myself an expert on marriage... having only done it once.

We can discuss the sensual shit when Eric can be here.
I won't co-opt his wife in such a discussion.

A "discussion" would involve more participants than yourself, so I think it is safe to say you are well out of danger in this regard.

I think you have a distorted view of love, Kittyman.

Among the most sensual things in the world is a woman who submits every ounce of her being to her man, not matter the cost.

Good grief. Kittyman, I strongly suspect you will die alone.

...maybe I can post later about the Memories I have of my Grand mother canning food in 1910 on the farm in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Please do, but if the memories involve exploding cans of tomatoes, please wait until my confidence in my canning skills improves from "I can't" to "I can!!!"

If I can do it you sure can. A lot of work but worth it for the 'good stuff'. Sterilized, up to temp with sealed lids and you are good to go. And you get to get a whole bunch of neat kitchen gadgets and cool stuff and such. ;^)

What do you can?

Muriel, darling! You have been missed. I am quite well. Thanks so for asking. As for the bacon, I shall be sure to direct it to Eric's attention. He loves a good, high quality strip in the morning...

As a self-professed Dominatrix of Domesticity, not much intimidates me in the kitchen. I am not afraid to proof yeast. I know the difference between Swiss, Italian and French Meringues. I can flambe, frappe and brulee with the best of them...

But when I think about putting food into a Mason jar and storing it, unrefrigerated, on a pantry shelf for six months... well frankly my knees get more wobbly than a bowl full of aspic!

I am absolutely terrified by the thought that I could gift a friend or a relative with a ribbon festooned jar full of yummy homemade botulinum toxin.

To this end, I have decided to seek professional help.

I have enrolled in my first canning class tomorrow and I am taking an additional canning class next week. I am very excited about both classes! I hope to learn the basics and then just see what I can safely create.

This is a thread for those who can foods.

Let's talk!

Merciful heavens!!! I do hope my beloved Eric steers clear of all the little tarts found in Miggins' newly opened shoppe. The poor man does suffer from hardening... of the arteries, don't you know.

You know thats not a bad idea. My wife loves shrimp cocktails. And when I go to a Japanese steak house, I love fried shrimp.
But how do you BBQ them?

I'm actually not a huge shrimp fan, but I do know a thing or two about cooking. First off, brine the shrimp so they don't turn to rubber on your grill. Then double skewer them so they don't roll around when you flip them over. You could also put them on single skewers alternating heads and tails tightly. The key is you want the skewers to be stable and the food to not roll around when you flip the skewers with tongs. Dry the shrimp well so there is no wetness from the brine on the outside. Salt, pepper and rub w/ oil. Cook over a low-ish fire about 4 minutes on one side and 1 minute on the second side. Shrimp cook fast and they will continue to cook when you remove them from the grill so pull them off before you think they are done. Sauce them when removed from the grill. If you try to barbecue a pre-sauced shrimp it will burn instantly.

Hello Friends!!!

Eric and I just returned from a trip to Washington D.C. with a nephew, in celebration of his 13th birthday. Eric and I have a tradition of taking each one of our nieces and nephews on a trip anywhere each chooses to go in the USA when each one turns 13. This was our eighth trip of this type... (Five more nieces and nephews to go... six if my sister-in-law gets her way and talks my baby brother into another baby!!!) Eric and I are gunning for the position of "fun aunt and uncle of the century".

The good news is that I walked (and walked, and walked, and walked) quite a bit each day. The bad news is that vacation time is not exactly diet time. I will get on the scale Monday as I promised and I will try to get back on the calorie cutting wagon tomorrow.

...In previous communications from her I had believed that she was chaste, and I was a welcome suitor, but I discovered to my dismay that this was not indeed the case. It appeared that her spelling was somewhat bereft of accuracy and that in fact she was chased (by many others), and that my attentions did not suit her....

Wow. Suzie-Q was right. Spelling does matter!

Ok, what happened?

Did old Pukers notice, did any thing, did every one lose
huge amounts of weight? Did I win the contest?



'Ol Pookers hasn't noticed a thing, because there hasn't been a thing to notice. I've lost a grand total of two pounds.

...You're thinking about what you're eating now - which is a very positive step in the right direction, even if circumstances mean that the best you can hope for for awhile is just to mark time. :)...


Thank you to all for your kind words of support. I should start a thread called "Maintain Your Weight With Angela", since I have not lost anything significant. But hey... I'm not gaining!!!

I know it is not Monday yet, but my bathroom scale and I will be parted for the next couple of weeks, so I thought I would weigh in before that happened. My next weigh in will be Monday July 28th. I feel like I am back on track just in time to blow it again...
