    After the Christmas meal, I plan to make turkey soup. I've never made it before, but it's easy enough to just add water, veggies, and cook. I have to find out how long it'll keep in the fridge. Yesterday, while walking in my santa hat (and of course, clothing as well - smiling), a driver stop... Read more

    If the recipe says you should add a few drops of this and a tablespoon of that, then the ingredients will be in wrappers that contain just a few drops or just a tablespoon.

    12/10/2019 3:41:56 PM, by SLIMMERJESSE

    Why? Because the car that nearly hit me missed. I was putting bags of groceries in my car when this guy speeds into the space next to me. I was stepping back just as he came speeding in.
