  1. If you have a grill, you can use that. https://cookingwithcurls.com/2016/08/17/grilled-chocolate-chip-cookies/ https://www.weber.com/US/en/blog/tips-techniques/cookies-on-the-grill/weber-30396.html
  2. I wanted a powdered alternative because I only use milk for baking and can never use up a carton. I recently bought this powdered soy milk and so far it's worked well in all the baking I've done. It you make it a directed it's not as thin as rice milk. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003J4M8HW/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza
  3. I returned a new set once because it was bendy. It looked good but was terrible quality. I don't remember the brand--I think I was shopping for a kid moving out. I love my Hampton 18/10 stainless that I bought 20 years ago so much that I watched for a set on ebay to replace some pieces that had disappeared.
  4. Funny you should mention that, because I just got back from the grocery store where I saw someone shopping in a blue sequin dress.
  5. These pork chops: https://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-cook-perfect-pork-chops-in-the-oven-cooking-lessons-from-the-kitchn-194257 I add fresh herbs to the brine.
  6. You really do have to run the numbers. We thought we'd be claiming youngest in her last year of college, but in the end we couldn't. She should gain the $1800 stimulus, but we lost her as a dependent and also lost her tuition tax credit. She hasn't done her taxes yet, but likely she won't get tuition credit either, because she won't owe on her federal. I just did our taxes and it isn't pretty. We lost two dependents, and tuition tax credits from both.
  7. I also asked my friend what would help her the most and it was making almost daily deliveries of a variety of drinks to help her stay hydrated, instead of just their well water---Starbucks, sweet tea, etc.
  8. We were asked to wait for 15, but there was no monitoring. I was a long time allergy shot patient, and even though I've never had a vaccine reaction, I was highly reactive to the allergy shots. I was heading home to an empty house so I waited 45.
  9. If she decides to seek medical help and/or counseling, talk through in advance how to handle billing, listing of her address and contact info, etc. in order to protect her privacy.
  10. My longtime allergist said there is no best when it comes to antihistamines, decongestants, etc. People respond differently to them, which is why there is a variety. Allegra-D works far better for me than the others. Flonase does nothing. One of my kids responded best to Mucinex, the other two to Claritin.
  11. I agree. The usual stuff just hasn't been making the rounds, but I expect that will change after spring break. I'm a ps teacher and we've had relatively few absences due to other illnesses among students this year. Ditto with staff and often when they're out it's younger teachers whose kids have brought something home from daycare.I don't know what attendance data looks like overall, but it won't surprise me if we actually wind up with fewer absent student days, despite all the quarantine absences. DD lives in another state and about a month ago she had a sore throat so did a virtua
  12. I'm starting to look around at ideas because my house is desperate for updating. I have 1970's butcherblock laminate countertop, which I thought I'd hate but don't. It's practically indestructible.
  13. I know this song, but I was just graduating from college. And I can still belt it out just as badly now as I did then.
  14. Our staff got the first Moderna Wed and almost everyone had worst than flu shot arm soreness. I had a headache all the next morning but it subsided by afternoon. My neck still feels stiff but not sure if it's related.I hydrated well before and after. Some were reporting fatigue...I'm always tired this year so I couldn't tell you!
