How about a counter height chair with casters?

Comment by sk8eycat on March 28, 2015 at 4:59pm

Thank you both!

But I'm am kind of two minds about the whole thing; up until a couple of years ago I really LOVED to cook....especially baking cakes and cookies....and soup.  I even taught myself (after watching many TV shows) how to make a really decent omelet. Now, just scrambling a couple of eggs is beyond me most days.

Glad to hear it Felaine!

Glad to hear your GOOD NEWS Felaine.  Sorry you can't cook much of what you like.

I don't do much cooking for the same reason, although my body isn't near as bad as yours.

For the last bits of mayo and mustard (in glass jars) I just scrape it out with a narrow rubber spatula.  I just never could understand WHY ke'chup is packaged the way it is.  Tomato sauce is more liquid than Ke'chup, but it comes in CANS.  It makes no sense.

GOOD NEWS!  My home-delivered meal service starts this coming Monday!  Between my back and my feet, I can't stand at the stove long enough to cook anything that I like....I've even been having problems taking baked stuff out of the oven lately.  I have everything I need to make a large pot of split pea w/mixed bean (and ham) soup, but more than 5 minutes on my feet is causing severe pain.  I even have to sit to use the microwave. 

A cup of nuked Tetley tea is PURR-fecto!  1 tea bag, a tsp of Sucralose, fill a 16oz cup/mug with 12oz hot tap water, and zap for 90 seconds. Then, if the weather is as hot as it's been, I add a couple of ice cubes to make it drinkable.

I also have quite a few types of Stash loose tea leaves and fill-it-yourself tea bags.  Die-VOON!  And I don't have to wait around for a pot of water to boil. 

My sister thinks I'm crazy, but her Asperger's syndrome includes a touch of OCD.  She follows traditional directions whether there's a better/easier way to do things or not.  I keep my mouth shut.

The large bottle holds 23 ounces, & the small one holds 13 ounces. Greens (lime & forest), 2 blues, red, orange, white, brown, yellow, purple, (not black).

We don't have as many color choices on, but has more.  I ordered the lime green & purple, & may order the dark blue later.

I always rinse the ketchup out into soups, stews, whatever.

I use my "last drops in the bottle", pour in a few teaspoons of water and pour it over my mac and cheese, or into a meatloaf, or as a liquid in a slurry. Same with mayonnaise. 

Comment by sk8eycat on March 28, 2015 at 2:16pm

How many ounces do they hold?  And do they come in other Cream/Ivory, and blue?  (Those are the main colors in our raggedy kitchen.)

One "foodish" question has been bothering me for decades: WHY does ke'chup come in narrow-neck bottles (or even worse, plastic squeeze bottles)?  WTF is wrong with wide-neck jars like Grey Poupon or jam?  You an NEVER get all of it out of those skinny bottles.

Any answers? 

Comment by Patricia on March 28, 2015 at 1:57pm

They come in several colors, orange, red, blue, some with free shipping, & some in pairs. Anything can go in them for easy pouring, oils, soy sauces, vinegars, etc. I ordered the green for olive oil, & the pair of purple ones for peanut oil, & soy sauce. They look black, but the color was listed as purple. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 28, 2015 at 9:32am

Cute bottle.  It looks easy to use, and although I don't use much olive oil, it would be good for other oils, or other liquids.

Some people that commented, said theirs leaked, but could be corrected with a rubber band.

If I were to get one, it would be the yellow-green one.  My favorite color.
