[quote:dc0a75a0df="cruby"]Ever since I was young, we always went to my grandma's house for Sunday lunch. Then when I first got married, we went to my MIL's. Now it's my turn to make Sunday lunches, and I have a vast repertoire of 3 meals. Does anyone have any suggestions on making a full meal on Sunday? Here are the qualifications: Not long to prepare, can cook while I'm at church, and the last minute prep is not more than 15 minutes. We're very hungry when we get home. Also how can I convert a recipe that bakes in the oven for such and such a time into something that bakes at a lower temp for around 4-5 hours while I'm away? Thanks for your help![/quote:dc0a75a0df]Howdy and welcome to 'zaar, Cruby. Nice to meet a new friend.Your description sounds to me like your Sunday meal is more of a dinner-type meal than a luncheon type. A slow-cooker/crockpot is the perfect answer to your timing request.Click on http://www.recipezaar.com/recipes.php?categ=89%2C225%2C141&ls=h for some wonderful recipes. Add a salad and some bread and you're set. Easy peasyIf you give any of them a try, recipe reviews are VERY much appreciated.There are also nearly 60 Sunday menus to help you put the meal together...click on http://www.recipezaar.com/menus.php?q=sunday&Search=Search&Searchr=Search to see them.

What type of chocolate did you use?[/quote:1ec8dfa266]In all honestly, Hubby's birthday snuck up on me this year, and everything was done last minute with stuff that I had on hand. :oops: Luckily, I am a compulsive food shopper and have a lot of stuff on had. :lol: I used a German Chocolate cake mix for the cupcakes and for both the chocolate pieces in the cheesecake portion of the cupcakes and for the chocolate in the glaze, I used Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate baking chips. The glaze is not sweet at all (with no powdered sugar added like many recipes), but we felt that it was a good balance to the sweetness of the cupcakes. Hubby isn't much of a frosting person, anyway.

weird/creepy ppl...sometimes not even. they can be a normal person, but then have ulterior motives. my parents always warned me not to trust just anybody. now that i am interacting with more ppl and making my own decisions, i realize that you can't trust anybody. even ppl who you thought were friends.i think a large percentage of ra pe is done by someone who is not a stranger (i don't have the exact stats).
I know a lot of people have success with solid routine, watching diet carefully and very specific rules.Is he getting hidden sugars? Is he getting out for regular exercise where can burn off some energy. I liken them to a dog who's getting into trouble. They need solid training of all types, a careful diet and a way to burn off the energy.

One of the things when considering a place for your retirement home, is the cost of living in that area. Unless you have a really great income during your retirement years, you want to live in an area where the cost of living is reasonable. Check out property taxes, cost of groceries, etc. Arizona will have lower heating bills, but they will also have astronomical electric bills during the hot summer months.I live in the Texas Panhandle (way up in the top of Texas) and I've always thought that I would like to move down to the Hill Country (near Austin) later in my life. It's a beautiful part of Texas with a lot of trees.

[quote="DDW"]It was killing me but I had to wait until today to read this post. The kids and I were finally able to watch the finale last night. I LOVED it and am very happy for TK and Rachel. It's funny but they remind me of my BIL & SIL - BIL has short hair now but could have easily fit the part a few years back! I just loved their calmness with each other and how their teamwork really did the job. I could see them staying together.I also loved that they ended in Alaska. DH and I lived there in '87/'88 and we're going back with the kids this summer. I'm going to try and figure out if there is a glacier tour/climb open to the public like they had on the race - that looked so......fun!!!!! I thought the calmness came from being "newly dating". :lol: I think I was like that when I first started dating my husband.
Buyers ARE Liars :wink: If looking at an existing home, ask to see the disclosure statement.Don't rule out new builds. Sometimes 'track builders' offer a good quality home for a good price.Custom builders right now have dropped their prices a lot. Don't be afraid to interview several builders and see what they come back with for a price. (don't forget to budget in land cost).If this is your first home, check out www.ifahome.comFirst time home buyers often qualify for different programs than someone buying their 2nd home. No money down isn't always a bad thing, it helps a lot of people get into homes.Shop around for mortgages, even if your realtor suggests using their 'in house lender'.Think about your winters, a north face doesn't have the sun to melt your drive. (couldn't resist, I'm in NE)
We have one of those stores here and I love it! You kinda have to go once or twice a week just to see what they have. They always get different stuff in. Some days they will have really good stuff where you are like.....umm whats wrong with this it really cant be 99 cents. But it is just stuff the wearhouses get rid of before it does go bad. But they always do have veggies, bags of potatoes and all the other stuff you mentioned. The one where I live gets really good bread! :) Me and hubby both work in grocery stores but i get the majority of our stuff at the 99 cent store(especially lately) because otherwise I wouldnt be able to buy most of the stuff I do.

We both have separate checking accounts but they are joint. He can write checks on mine and I can on his. We don't but we can, say if one of us was sick or died. We have joint savings accounts. I have direct deposit to my checking and he has direct deposit to his checking. He pays all the household bills. I pay for groceries, my gas, my clothes (and shoes!) and gifts. I buy whatever I want that I can pay for. If we need something major, we discuss it and he pays for it. He makes significantly more than I do.

I just came back from the dollar store. Charlies Produce, a local produce company is selling fresh veggies and salad mixes there all for $1. The salads are refrigerated and nothing is outdated.

Thanks for the comments everyone. My husband is feeling bad for his brother. We had no idea about this area until I looked it up on the Internet last night. As I mentioned before, he did not make a good investment and I wonder if he even bothered to check it out before he bought the property.
We were just there this week. I was "good" and had a turkey burger with broccoli and the burger had grilled onions/mushrooms. It was very dark and rich (soy sauce or beef broth?). My son loves their (grilled) teriyaki chicken. My father in law loved his carbonara, that had ham, peas, and mushrooms in it. I would like to try the chicken salad that Dojemi mentioned. My sister always gets their appet. corn cakes, too. My husband didn't think their fish and chips were that great, though. They are scrumptious. I am boring (but classic) and like the original cheesecake, minus the whipped cream.

[quote:7b99949010="Sherrybeth"]I received these in an email today. Some I've seen and some I haven't. I thought I would share them with ya'll.[b:7b99949010]Peel a banana from the bottom and you won't have to pick the little 'stringy things' off of it. That's how the primates do it.Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh much longer and not mold!Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef. It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple of spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream in and then beat them up.For a cool brownie treat, make brownies as directed. Melt Andes mints in double broiler and pour over warm brownies. Let set for a wonderful minty frosting. Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic and at the end of the recipe if your want a stronger taste of garlic.[color=red:7b99949010]Leftover Snickers bars from Halloween make a delicious dessert. Simply chop them up with the food chopper. Peel, core and slice a few apples. Place them in a baking dish and sprinkle the chopped candy bars over the apples. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes!!! Serve alone or with vanilla ice cream.[/color:7b99949010]Reheat PizzaHeat up leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it really works.Expanding FrostingWhen you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less sugar and calories per serving.Reheating refrigerated breadTo warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.Newspaper weeds awayStart putting in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet newspapers put layers around the plants overlapping as you go cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic; they will not get through wet newspapers.No More MosquitoesPlace a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away.Squirrel Away!To keep squirrels from eating your plants sprinkle your plants with cayenne pepper. The cayenne pepper doesn't hurt the plant and the squirrels won't come near it. Reducing Static ClingPin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you will not have a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with slacks that cling when wearing panty hose. Place pin in seam of slacks and--tada!--static is gone.Measuring CupsBefore you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill with hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup. Next, add your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes right out.Foggy Windshield?Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of your car. When the windows fog, rub with the eraser! Works better than a cloth!Reopening envelopeIf you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include something inside, just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for an hour or two. Viola! It unseals easily.ConditionerUse your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It's cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It's also a great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn't like when you tried it in your hair.Goodbye Fruit FliesTo get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass fill it half full with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dishwashing liquid, mix well. You will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!Get Rid of AntsPut small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it 'home,' can't digest it, so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets[/b:7b99949010][/quote:7b99949010]Thanks..........these are some great hints.

In this community, there were some homes that were alittle older and also by a different manufacturer. You could definitely tell a difference from the one we stayed in.We did talk to people who lived there and their utilities were reasonable and they loved their homes. The management company did a great job of maintaining the grounds, etc. Some homes had very elaborate landscaping where others were more simple.A couple owners mentioned they went to the factory to see them being built before they purchased and were impressed by what they saw.These homes are really alot of "bang for your buck".I'll report back after next weekend when we see those on the east coast.
4am this morning I spoke with a young man who works for Georgia Power....he & a lot of others were called in & headed to Alabama to meet up head into the areas without power in an effort to restore it. Later this morning (10am~ish)I saw a large group heavy duty trucks (some with lift buckets) gathering to head into the La, Ms areas to clear downed trees & assist with power restoration. Keeping good thoughts for all in these areas & those headed there to help out.
[quote:b3cf7710e1="Brandess"]Whoa... I did not read past the first comment about my being out of town. Do not attack me about my Crohn's. That is WAY over the line and I won't stand for it. What kind of person are you?I am done with this.[/quote:b3cf7710e1]I'll just bet you're done with it.So you're on a business trip. Fine.I didn't attack you about your Crohn's. I merely asked where you find the energy to do everything you manage to do. Most Crohn's patients would envy you.If you want to turn things around and attack me, fine. I can take it. But let's get back to the issue at hand.What are you so worried about with regard to people contacting Safeway? (Don't bother telling me that of course Safeway will deny all of this.)And as to the previous post, if you had posted about something that had allegedly happened to you, and then named names, smearing a person or company, then, yes, I would have called you out.I'll be back, but right now, I've got work to do.Oh, and one last thing - for those of you who haven't noticed, SAFEWAY SPONSORS THIS SITE.
