Re: Use Up the Pantry Challenge

LWolfT, I went backwards on the boxed mixes and restocked. Since we're not eating out or buying ice cream any more, we've really enjoyed the occasional cake or pan of brownies. Food Lion has had a sale on boxed cake mix and now boxes of brownie mix five for $5. I now have seven boxes of cake mix an...

Re: Daily Check in April 11, 2021

I cut up a mango yesterday, they were on sale last week and since we have never had them before decided that would be the best time to purchase. Well it wasn't what I would call ripe, and the remaining "red mangos" are sitting on my table to try and ripen. How do you tell when a mango is ripe? Any ...

Re: Car Buying

We're of the buy new, drive them for years (or until the repair bills start mounting) camp. My current car is almost 13 years old. Think DH's was around 12 when it was totaled in a rear-end collision. To me, leasing is a perpetual car payment, plus you still need to put $$$ down. (Though I suspect t...

Re: Daily Check in April 6, 2021

Good afternoon .... checking in with you all to avoid some work ;) Lovely day here, supposed to be near 80. DH gets his 2nd Covid shot today, hopefully he'll skate through with mild/no side effects. (SIL reports that she had a fever and chills for 2 days after her shot of the same brand.) Otherwise,...

Re: Let's Repair it Ourselves!

The back door latch was sticking — had a heck of a time getting the door open. But sprayed in some WD-40 - type stuff and it's working just fine. Our latest repair was an adventure.
