Felaine that is very good news indeed. Our Spokane Meals on Wheels has a fine reputation for delicious food. I hope you meals taste delicious and fill your tummy. 

Ageing does take its toll and each year gets a little harder. I suppose the day will come when the days will get more unpleasant. Right now, I have fine Golden Years. 

I am very sorry your feet and legs give out, You must have built up a lot of muscles while you had your skating career. That has not been a benefit to you?

I'm glad of your good news, Felaine! And I hope the meals are good and to your liking. Some time ago you talked about a plan to go to the hairdresser's - have you had a chance already?

Long story...oru kitchen floor (DIY tiles) is shattering into little bits.  Almost 20 years ago we got a loan from the city Redevelopment Agency (and several thousand bux from State Farm for earthquake damage) to do some major repairs.  One of the "approved" contractors was a JW that my sister knew, so she hired him.  He didn't tell us Jack Shit about the difference (lifetime) between linoleum and glue-down tiles, among many other "little" details. 

I just hope the roof stays put for another 10 or 20 years.  I used to have nightmares about rain coming in my bedroom when we still had wood shingles.  Now we have cheap-looking composition stuff...but it's fireproof and raccoon-proof.

The JW contractor is dead now, so we can't sue him.  The SOB.

Thank you both!

But I'm am kind of two minds about the whole thing; up until a couple of years ago I really LOVED to cook....especially baking cakes and cookies....and soup.  I even taught myself (after watching many TV shows) how to make a really decent omelet. Now, just scrambling a couple of eggs is beyond me most days.

Glad to hear your GOOD NEWS Felaine.  Sorry you can't cook much of what you like.

I don't do much cooking for the same reason, although my body isn't near as bad as yours.

For the last bits of mayo and mustard (in glass jars) I just scrape it out with a narrow rubber spatula.  I just never could understand WHY ke'chup is packaged the way it is.  Tomato sauce is more liquid than Ke'chup, but it comes in CANS.  It makes no sense.

GOOD NEWS!  My home-delivered meal service starts this coming Monday!  Between my back and my feet, I can't stand at the stove long enough to cook anything that I like....I've even been having problems taking baked stuff out of the oven lately.  I have everything I need to make a large pot of split pea w/mixed bean (and ham) soup, but more than 5 minutes on my feet is causing severe pain.  I even have to sit to use the microwave. 

A cup of nuked Tetley tea is PURR-fecto!  1 tea bag, a tsp of Sucralose, fill a 16oz cup/mug with 12oz hot tap water, and zap for 90 seconds. Then, if the weather is as hot as it's been, I add a couple of ice cubes to make it drinkable.

I also have quite a few types of Stash loose tea leaves and fill-it-yourself tea bags.  Die-VOON!  And I don't have to wait around for a pot of water to boil. 

My sister thinks I'm crazy, but her Asperger's syndrome includes a touch of OCD.  She follows traditional directions whether there's a better/easier way to do things or not.  I keep my mouth shut.

I use my "last drops in the bottle", pour in a few teaspoons of water and pour it over my mac and cheese, or into a meatloaf, or as a liquid in a slurry. Same with mayonnaise. 

Comment by sk8eycat on March 28, 2015 at 2:16pm

How many ounces do they hold?  And do they come in other Cream/Ivory, and blue?  (Those are the main colors in our raggedy kitchen.)

One "foodish" question has been bothering me for decades: WHY does ke'chup come in narrow-neck bottles (or even worse, plastic squeeze bottles)?  WTF is wrong with wide-neck jars like Grey Poupon or jam?  You an NEVER get all of it out of those skinny bottles.

Any answers?

Cute bottle.  It looks easy to use, and although I don't use much olive oil, it would be good for other oils, or other liquids.

Some people that commented, said theirs leaked, but could be corrected with a rubber band.

If I were to get one, it would be the yellow-green one.  My favorite color.

Pretty bottles. Looks like they will be easy to use, not slip out of your hand, and not spill down the front.
