~If you have bagged spinach, don't eat it. There has been one death, and at least 20 cases of people ill with e-coli. See this article for further details. A few weeks ago, I had heard of several people who had gotten e-coli from bagged salad mixes, so I've been avoiding them since then. The convenience isn't worth getting sick (or dying!).
~I'm making ketchup tonight. I got quite a few tomatoes out of my garden, and wanted to make up a batch of ketchup. In my mind, I was going to cook the tomatoes, run them through my food strainer, and "voila" have tomato paste come out. Yeah, right. I got tomato juice, of course. It's simmering on the stove right now. *I* am enjoying the smell, but someone else, who happens to live with me, is not enjoying the smell of vinegar, spices, and tomatoes that is wafting through our house. LOL
~I'm interested in the results that are coming in for my little poll. The "don't knows" are currently in the lead. To the "don't knows" out there...you should try some eggplant! =)
~It's "sweater weather" here! It's supposed to warm up over the weekend, and then supposedly the high for Tuesday is 56*. I refuse to believe weather forcasts here in Michigan. They aren't very acurate. When we moved here, people told us, "If you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes." That's been true on some days!
~I made chili for dinner tonight. Yum! I love soups and chili on a cool day. It's the perfect meal for fall and winter!
~I'm working on yet another new project. :D It's a cabled scarf, perfect to learn how to do cables on. Cables always looked extremely hard to me, so I was pleasantly surprised to find out how easy they are. The scarf is very skinny, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it. I told Kevin that it's a "California" scarf--a decoration, not something to keep warm with. I really like the way its turning out though, so I will finish it.
~Have a good day!
