    So we have a thread for wasted food accountability. Well how about those "nice saves" we've done. Here's mine so far this week. Some cooked chicken that was about to go bad turned into chicken and dumplings. Two bell peppers that were starting to get less than crispy turned into a pork stir...

    Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed the difference?It seems to me that when I use body wash in the shower,it takes more time to rinse it off of my skin- I guess b/c it feels more slippery.
