.........And my miserable feet & joints too!!!!!
"...The Golden Years have come at last. The Golden Years can kiss my A$$."
What damned fool was it that decided to make bacon out of a turkey? Heard that line in an all black movie once and laughed my head off.
Second try at this post. First one went to the wrong place.
As I've heard so many times ageing stinks & it ain't for wimps. What are the ''graceful golden years'' again......?????
Many thanks! I think I'll start the soaking tonight.
As for differences in food....I haven't been able to drink anything stronger than a 4oz glass of very dry champagne once in a while for 40 years. I get migraines from alcohol. Actually, they are histamine headaches, but it's the same mechanism as migraines....and they sometimes have lasted for days.
Fish and shellfish, which I have loved all my life, triggers gout.
T'ain't much fun, this aging thing. About the only benefit is that I get to say what I think without causing an uproar....
It's the fizzing which draws the gas out of the beans or something. I never measure, but at a guess I'd say a tsp. of baking soda & 2 tbsp. of vinegar per quart, & that is for overnight soaking. Rinse well & let the beans sit in clear water for another half hour or so before cooking. It doesn't reduce all the gas, but a good enough amount to make it worth it as far as I can tell, for us anyway.
Yeah well.......I don't run across people who don't like bacon.......
Patricia, you silly thing, we don't all have to like, or eat, the same things....wouldn't things be boring if we did?
I have been meaning to ask you about adding baking soda and vinegar to bean-soaking water....HOW MUCH of each per quart? I usually soak a lb of beans in 3 quarts of cold water overnight.
(And doesn't mixing vinegar with baking soda ADD gas? I mean, if you mix the two with nothing else, it fizzes violently. Makes a handy drain cleaner, for one thing.)
I miss my yearly bottle of brandy, & the new years bottle of champagne, but the brand we have here has a white, a red, & a ''champagne'' which are all good when very cold. They certainly fill the bill when the mood strikes.
The wineless as I call it, is brought here from Australia & distributed from here in Vancouver......
Thank you muchly Bertold....nice to know I won't have to spend my senior years in prison.
