I love a brilliant mind and especially when it comes to architecture. I've always been interested in the design and thought process. Frank Lloyd Wright's designs are some of my favorites. If I find myself in NYC, I will definitely be heading to the museum.

Just started following you on bloglovin and I'm looking forward to your future posts.

I love #5. That's my biggest problem. Getting distracted in another area before I finish the area I started. Will try doing it your way from now on. Thanks.

Come on people....lighten up. Sure it's silly. I think that was the intention. The "flatware" mentioned is just a tiny part of the stupid things people spend their money on. What I find silly are the people that actually use and like these products. They could make great gag gifts for that special someone though.

I have a pressure cooker in my cupboard for over 10 years and it's practically new. I don't know why I don't use it more often because the 2-3 recipes I did make years ago turned out great. Time for me to break it out and make some of these great recipes. Thanks for reminding me about my PC.

I love that you put cabbage in your tuna salad. Not only will it make 1 can go further, it adds some extra veggies. I also mix mayo and yogurt when making a tuna salad. Love the tang of the yogurt. Definitely going to try my next tuna salad this way.

I'm a big mayo fan. But it's Duke mayo for me. Only a few ingredients instead of a whole paragraph of additives. And, although most people use ketchup on fries, I've seen many people dip in mayo. Hopefully, they don't have to worry about all those extra calories.

Mayo wins in my house....sandwiches, dips, sauces, dressings, etc. Just as many calories as using olive oil. Just watch out for those additives.

I just had sunchokes last night for dinner. Just browned them slightly with garlic and mushrooms and added some pasta. Love sunchokes. Didn't know about the "gas" situation, but glad to report that I was not affected. I'll have to check with my husband to see if he experienced any. Your soup and the various toppings sound wonderful. Now I want to grow some because they are so expensive in the store.
