I love my Keurig coffee brewer. It's the next best thing to a microwave oven. No more "old" coffee leftovers or trying to figger out how to make PART of a pot of coffee. Yah, not cheap, but I have used the K-Cup thingie in which you put in your own coffee, and I've also re-used some K-cups instead of using a fresh one. I'm starting to wish I was financially secure enough to retire and just take care of my chickens instead of going to work five days a week. I bet I'd be more organized in selling eating eggs. I might even start selling chicks, who knows? I want to be better about yard upkeep, too. I'm just whipped when I get home from work. Hmmm, probably should add "housework" to that "wishing about being better at keeping up on it" bit. Prepared foods from the deli section of the grocery store are far more interesting to me than they ever used to be. My tastes are expanding, too. Cold pasta salads with different types of cheeses, or different rice mixtures really appeal to me. I also have discovered the best fried chicken I have ever tasted at the "Chinese" counter: Brandy Fried Chicken. REALLY expensive so I usually only buy a breast, which is more than enough to fill me up for dinner. REALLY good. Branched out to White Merlot wine, instead of the usual White Zinfandel I was stuck on for quite a time. In the last few years, I've discovered a really good vodka, too: Blue Ice. It's made from actual potatoes, like vodka is SUPPOSED to be, and is an American vodka. That's my sipping beverage, straight. I will also drink Skyy vodka but there's a chance it might just be for the really pretty blue bottle. The empties looks awfully nice on my bottle tree in the back yard. I've got a sudden hankering for fish & chips. Oh! Carl's Jr now sells sweet potato fries! Very lightly salted. NUMMY! I thought I was on a rampage to natter on about a whole slew of things, but have stuttered to a stop. Oh well. Probably be back here after work tomorrow to add a few things.
