Q: What is the most common remark made by 60-plus year olds when they enter antique stores?
A: "Gosh, I remember these!"

I usually have something like it at home on my shelves.

Have a great week folks.

Susan, we had fresh corn from the farmers market instead of cauliflower, and it was grand tasting, first fresh cob I've had this summer. Hope you had corn and enjoyed it, for pete's sakes, Lordy have mercy. ;)

No cauliflower though, dil says they didn't have any. Son had promised to try some this day, too, he doesn't care for those kinds of veggies either.......:cool:

I remember as a kid, we grew corn, and it was wonderful and a sure taste of summer, that, and watermelon, made us smile. There was never enough corn to even consider freezing though, I would freeze it if we were lucky enough to grow any. The good old days, friends! But I never enjoyed the watermelon like everyone else did.

All of a sudden, we noticed there were NO strawberries for sale at all, not even at the Tom Thumb we had to stop in to get a new card, seems as if the season suddenly halted..............sort of odd. Anyone else notice? Maybe not people on the West coast, I suppose. Darn, I was looking forward to one last round of them, lol.

Have a good evening!

I simply CANNOT eat three separate meals each day. I generally eat breakfast and supper, have a snack around 9:00 PM, and sometimes snack during the remainder of the day.

Here's what I ate yesterday (Monday):

8 ounces sliced turkey
2 ounces pepper jack cheese

Mid-afternoon snack:
3 butter/cream cheese candies (home made)

4 ounces pulled pork
1 ounce cheddar cheese

Late snack:
2 ounces Ruffles potato chips
3 ounces sour cream

Total caloriess: 1872

Protein - 131 grams, 28% of daily calories
Carbohydrates - 40 grams, 9% of daily calories

Sorry, Loretta, his daughter is doing herself a world of good taking up running while young already, how many in your family run now, anyway?

It is so warm outside, you could go out with no clothes on and not notice a thing.............it's sort of weird. Back in our mountain area, they have had lows in the low 40's and used the woodstove a time or two already.
