Questions for your Physician

Keep notes of any medical issue you might want to discuss. We are seniors and often forget. Writing and rereading between visits keeps it freash in the mind. Always call on urgent issues. Rewrite before the visit and you should have all of your answers from the DR. We hand the note over he reads it.

Afraid to BLOG

After posting a comment to a page. If it is lengthy copy it to a word program Expand it and edit it and then you will easily post it. That was how I started to Blog. It is less stressful to write it in word. Much bigger font , spellcheck. All make it easy to cut and paste your blog with ease.

Kids cooking.

When teaching kids to cook especially mixing. Put the bowl in your sink on a towel and let the little cook add all ingredients and stir. The sink is lower and they can see in to the bowl better and the mess goes down the drain. Keeps clothes spatter free also. My grandkids love to cook with me .

Keep the kitchen cooller in summer.

I do not put my slow cooker away for summer. We fill it in the kitchen and then use it in the garage to keep the kitchen cooller.

Crock pot in Summer.

After setting up your crockpot meal. Take the appliance outside to cook. Mine goes to the garage. it can also be put on a deck so long as it is protected from children and animals. Our son uses a wooden box with lid, sets it up on a table.

Make good notes when changing a recipe.

If you change any part of a recipe make a note of it. There is nothing worse than improving on the original and forgetting what you did. MAKE a NOTE and then add you own personal rating.

Keep recipes clean

I prnt recipes. Use large font, bold. File in binder. When needed remove and place in order under plastic sheet or a glass pie plate. Prevents spatter and plate gives emergency hot pad.
After recipe is used put to bottom of pile. File away when done cooking. Cook books stay cleaner that way.
