When I first started dating, I made a mental note of items that she liked to drink such as beer brands, Coke/Pepsi, favorite wines, etc. Then, I would make a point in stocking them. However, after several girlfriends, I now have a stock of beverages that I don’t drink. And, the best that I can hope for is that someone else likes them.
Going forward, I no longer make a point of stocking items that I don’t drink unless otherwise requested.
Arby’s is now carrying a Reuben sandwich on its menu selection. And while I love a good Reuben, I had my doubts. It would either be very very good or very very bad. But, I took a chance anyway. And, to my amazement, it was excellent. I now have a new lunch time favorite. Score one for Arby’s.
An article in the May issue of Readers Digest suggested storing ripe bananas in the refrigerator as this would keep them from getting overly ripe.
And, since I buy bananas buy the bunch, they tend to ripen by the bunch. One day they are crunchy and the next they are mush. So, I decided to give it a try.
So far, it seems to be working. And even though the bananas turn brown, the texture seems to be maintained. The only other draw back that I can see is that they cold when I eat them. While, this is not a major drawback, it is rather unusual.
Every time that my family pays a visit, I find an assortment of items which have been left behind. And, since I am not sure who left them behind, I never know who to approach about them. In fact, some of these items have been kicking around for a couple of years.
Well, from now on, whenever I find anything that doesn’t belong to me, it is going into a lost and found box. And, anything not claimed after a year will either be donated or thrown out.
While cleaning under the bed in one of my guest rooms, I discovered a lone sandal. This surprised me as none of my family members have ever mentioned losing a sandal.
I mean, if you had two sandals when you arrived, it would seen natural to leave with two sandals. Or, at least, if you noticed that you only had one sandal, maybe you should inquire about the other sandal. But, who knows, maybe the sandal is a runaway who is hiding in my house.
For regular dress sizes, Target was advertizing one of the colors as “Dark Heather”. But, in the plus sizes, the color was called “Manatee Gray”. Needless to say, some women were very offended.
Lowell has opened a new driving range. It shares its lot with used farm equipment. So, instead of just hitting your balls at yardage markers, you can actually aim for a tractor or a plow or a hay baler. What fun!!
When I was in Meijer (regional grocery chain), I noticed that they now have flavored Pistachios. Since I like the taste of plain old pistachios and given that they are $8 a pound, I will save the flavors for corn chips.
Well, all of the Easter candy at Meijer (regional grocery chain) is 50% off. And while the chocolate won’t keep, the Peeps will. Like candy corn, Peeps don’t go bad. So, now is the time to stock up for next year.
