  1. I love creamed corn ! Just warmed in a bowl - yum ! I also love canned lima beans and canned butter beans. Also canned beets, pears, and peaches. And mandarin oranges. The worst canned item I can think of is spinach - revolting. Canned cooked carrots are my second worst.
  2. I think they still sell that. You can definitely buy canned chop suey vegetables 😬
  3. My mom makes this with cranberries put through a grinder along with chopped celery, apples and walnuts. I can not stand the texture. I like just jello and marshmallows. I used to help her make it so I could steal a mug of hot liquid strawberry jello with no stuff in it, and melt some marshmallows into it .... I drank it like cocoa 😂
  4. I love this when it’s made with leftover turkey and white gravy on toast. It’s pretty much the only way I like turkey that isn’t in deli meat form.
  5. Patties made from canned salmon. Boiled carrots. Cottage cheese on iceberg lettuce with some kind of canned fruit. Baked beans with biscuits on top. Spaghetti with hamburger. Waffles with raisins and nuts. Banana and iceberg lettuce salad, with mayonnaise as the dressing. No no no !!!!
  6. I like Bissel bagless vacuums. They are affordable. They are light enough that I can take them up and down stairs, and vacuum the stairs without a risk of falling down them. They pick up pet and human hair. They are easy to take apart and clean. All the attachments are in a good place and are comfortable to use. The cord retracts. There is nothing else I want in a vacuum.
  7. It’s trendy to be trans. I’m not interested in the pile on either. I think what I think and I don’t care if it’s PC or not. 🤷‍♀️ I don’t care what people want to be called. I will call them he or she, pick one and stick with it . I don’t care, but I’ll go to jail before I’m forced to use nonsense words. I don’t care how people want to dress. Make yourself happy. But I don’t believe it’s ethical for doctors to alter bodies for this. It doesn’t really change biology. It’s a lifelong battle with negative health consequences. There are many ways to be male or female. Those should be accepted. The medical approach trend is very sad.
  8. Thank you all. I’m canceling for Weds morning but I expect to still pay. She is going to teach one kid here in town on Tuesday afternoon when she is up here anyway so they won’t both miss. The car is good but the area has a lot of accidents even in good weather. I’m not sure about the wind that morning, but we have a lot of snow right now so if there is any wind, there will be drifting snow. The aspect of the car I worry most about is electronics. Update - co-op is cancelled for tomorrow, but we will be at her place at 5 pm. It's around zero then which is normal weather here. We can get the lessons done before we go into the -20 to -30 zone. That is not normal weather here. They are predicting we may break local records here on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, but we will be off the road before that starts happening.
  9. My fear is having car trouble and not being able to run the engine for heat, and not having anything open that we could quickly walk to.
  10. Wednesday morning it is predicted to be -26 F and the high for the day is only -16 F. We usually leave about 730 and drive 45 minutes for violin lessons. I decided I will cancel in those temps because I don’t feel safe driving that far from home in that cold when hardly anything is open yet. Is this silly ? If it was local I would go, but it’s 45 minutes away.
  11. My experience is that we get a truckload of advice on how we should do things, but it mostly comes from people who won't help. Then after an event is complete, there are complaints about all the things that were wrong about it, but do they want to help to make it better in the future ? Nope. Volunteers get nitpicked by other parents, and even by other volunteers in the same group. It's sad.
  12. (clears throat) Thoughts on volunteering - The charge is led by those who choose to take a chance and step up through their own business and discomfort, whether they feel qualified or not. They will meet new people, make new mistakes, and learn many new things. They will get a thousand so-called helpful suggestions, but few genuine offers from others to pitch in. Their efforts will be criticized by many people who offered nothing else. If they look like they are in charge and know what they are doing, it's because they took charge and decided to figure it out. They are normal people who decided to contribute, take advantage of a great opportunity for growth, and to help create something that others benefit from. ☮️
  13. I remember reading East of Eden on a road trip when I was eight. My mom finally noticed what I was reading and said maybe no .. I said too late, one chapter left 🤷‍♀️ I read a lot of adult books at that age. Now I’m middle aged and read mostly teen sci fi 😆
  14. I would pay, because I have failed on my own. I gave up and started quilting instead.
  15. I would have laughed at her and said I already know what to do with yarn 😂 (I personally don’t, but I am guessing that you do ! )
