Thursday Thirteen....

----- Listening to the Homeless I have not seen a homeless person (other than people we know who had fallen on hard luck and were traveling to a new home) in several years. Some cities manage to hide their homeless.
-----Should Franklin Graham's speaking at the Pentagon proceed as scheduled? I am also reading that the National Day of Prayer has been declared unconstitutional.

2. Recipes:
-----Fuzzy Naval Cake
-----Chocolate Buttermilk Bread
-----Baked Cabbage. Some recipes I can't visualize until I make them...this one has Miracle Whip and chili sauce...and is one I cannot really visualize yet. Before the recipe had tomato sauce (instead of chili sauce)...I will likely try it both ways.
-----Sweet and Sour Salad Dressing I am adding Tarragon Wine Vinegar to my Never Cooked With List. I hope that Tarragon Wine Vinegar can be found at supermarkets around here....there are a lot of simple things (like cranberries) that are not available.
-----Baked Brie with Apricot Preserves. Has a jalapeño in the recipe.
-----Apple Sauerkraut Potato Salad

3. No one has a pet rat in Calgary.


6. President Obama's Income. I am glad for what he did with the Nobel Prize money....and wonder which organizations received it.

7. Study shows that frequent password changes are useless. What do you think?

8. Cirque du Soleil to create Michael Jackson show.

9. Pornographic magazine for the blind


What do you think? I think that both sides have points.

11. Will you Tweet differently now that the Library of Congress is saving your Tweets? I have taken my Tweets private (not that I know if that will do any good...since they were originally public)...I do not know if I want any/all of my Tweets in the Library of Congress. This was not the audience I intended...I am very sure I would have written about different things had I known this was going to happen.

12. I want Star Wars training shoes. I wonder what store these were purchased at.

13. Americans love Norwegian beer. I don't think I have ever had a Norwegian beer (and I am American).

You should be able to find tarragon vinegar--it's pretty common, and very yummy. I use it in a chicken salad with grapes and walnuts that is wonderful!

Great list, I really enjoyed the randomness of it!

Happy TT!


Thanks, Sherilee. I went to 2 stores today (one of them Schnuck's) looking for orange extract. I am stuck with orange flavoring....just the way it is here. It is not that I live in a small area....I just live in an un-cultured area where people try to dictate the way everyone should be. I have to drive about an hour for cranberries unless it is Thanksgiving....because clearly no one would want cranberries by the store's market research. I may move someday.:-(


While I am it....all of the stores in this area have also phased out lamb. As I was typing this Husband finished this last sentence with an alternative ending...."All of the stores in this area suck."
