    make ahead of time? I've made two pies. Want to do the green bean casserole, but how will the onions stay crispy? Maybe I should do the sweet potatoes instead? Any insight? lol

  4. Thanksgiving
    So, it looks like the family is getting together this year for Thanksgiving. DH and I will be driving ~12 hours to get there. What's a good side dish that travels well? We will have a cooler and ice packs. I don't know what is available once we get there for storage and heating, but I assume...

    I have heard of Shrimp and Grits for a long while, but thought the combination sounded disgusting. Well, I saw the dish on a lunch menu at a local Lousiana style restaurant. I thought I would go ahead and try it since it was at a lunch price as opposed to a dinner price. That way, if it was...

    I finally was able to purchase a matching set of dishes for the first time in my 17 years of marriage. You people were right. I hung laundry all winter and with my budgeted gas money I was able to go to Kohl's to buy dishes that match my style. Of course I had 30% off my purchase and $10 for...

    We have a dishwasher here at my dads. I hate doing dishes so I have been using it. Our water bill is a lot of money now though every week because I end up running the thing once a day, sometimes twice! So my question is, if I start hand washing dishes, do you think this will save on our bill...

    Does anyone else have multiple sets of good china? I've got two full sets of good dishes boxed up in the basement, and using real china now for my everyday dishes. Plus I have old everyday dishes that I have to keep because the china can't go in the microwave. Plus I have plastic dishes for...

    For me the beginning of September always signals the start of fall. Sometimes the weather doesn't agree with me but happily this year we seem to be on the same track. Along with changing out the clothes in the closet the page of my imaginary menu planner changes as well. Now for most people that...

  13. Camping, RV's, Trailers, Outdoor Living
    This question comes up frequently on a camping forum I visit, and I'm curious if the answers are going to be much different here. We prefer to use re-usable dishes when we're at camp in a situation where we have the time and things set up so we can wash dishes conveniently. When we stop for...

  15. Home Environment
    :scratch: He not only let me sleep in late this morning, but he also got the kids breakfast and when I came downstairs, he was scrubbing out the bottom of the dish strainer with Vim power bleach stuff. I don't know what to think... (He's never done dishes in the last three years we've been in...

    Mine are Phalzgraf (sp?) and they are the retired blueberry pattern. I've had them for 15 years and everytime I think about getting rid of them and buying different ones, I talk myself out of it. I can think of better ways of spending the money. KWIM? I also like them in cycles. Right now I...

    I have a few pieces of Corelle that my MIL gave me. I really like them b/c the are virtually unbreakable. So, yesterday while at Walmart I looked at them. OMG, they are so expensive...who knew? For example, one dinner plate was $4.38. A sixteen piece set was $50.00. Needless to say I...
