I hear you, Pat. I haven't broken anything lately, but my fingers are permanently numb, and I need help opening jars, even ones that have previously been opened, and then the lids screwed back on too tight.
Mostly I use Ziploc freezer bags and the same brand plastic containers to store things anymore. I don't trust myself with glass.
And I detest plastic bottles and jars that have lids that are attached to plastic rings that never come off. Or the "child-proof" type. A child can open the damn things, but old women with useless arthritic hands, and who NEED the meds in the bottles, have to use pliers, a monkey wrench, or an ice pick (or all three) to get the lids off.
Right now my fingers aren' working at all; I just finished addressing a stack of postcards for a friend...I've been doing this every month for more than 5 years now (I also type the things and print them)...for no pay. Do you think I should ask her to buy me some HP ink cartridges? She does pay for the postcards *whew!*
I made the mistake of buying Awful Depot's refilled ink cartridges, and they're useless...and cost just as much as 100% new HP ones.
Sorry. I'm whining again.
With everything falling down and breaking, I'm afraid to unzip my pants!
Pat, it's time to order a pizza for dinner and call it a day. You shouldn't have to settle for gruel if you can avoid it.
Ever have one of those completely "Dumb assed, brain dead" moments in a kitchen where you are trying to prepare a good meal? Tonight, I was going to prepare baked fish, green beans, and a curried rice pilaf for dinner; the rice made with my own homemade chicken stock.
Well, let the 3 Stooges and the Keystone Cops begin. After spilling half a box of rice on the kitchen floor, it gets better. I swept that up and went for the white raisins to add to the rice, onion and celery that I saved. In going for the raisins, a jar of $12.00 imported Italian Marinara sauce also hits the floor with predictable results. Glass and red sauce all over the kitchen floor, cabinets, and the front of the stove. I would add here, that I am in socks, having previously taken off my shoes. It was hard to differentiate the blood from my feet from the marinara sauce as I was cleaning it up.
I get that all cleaned up, and open the homed canned chicken stock. Needless to say, it splatters all over the sink. Mind you, it's good, but I lost about 1/4 of the pint.
I think I'm going to check myself into a nursing home, and have them feed me gruel that Oliver Twist would have turned his nose up at!
Basic New York style cheesecake with cherry sauce on top.
I'm still partial to blueberry cheesecake. There's a blueberry farm 10 minutes down the road from me. I load my freezer every July.
Pumpkin and fudge/chocolate? Srsly? I've never tried that. but it sounds kinda...wellll...too much. Am I wrong? (I'm just not that wild about any kind of chocolate...except hot mocha-cocoa on a rainy day...the family misfit in that dept.)
Pumpkin cheesecake with hot fudge sauce!
(Or traditional cheesecake, or chocolate chip cheesecake, with hot fudge sauce!)
Pumpkin cheesecake with glazed pecans on top, OR cranberry cheesecake...either with a cranberry swirl in the cheese part, or a whole cranberry glaze on top...or both.
What IS it about cheesecake? I don't know anybody who doesn't like some form of it. Cream cheese pie, or New York style, it's always decadently yummy!
Carrot cake. With a cream cheese and pecan frosting.
