I like having a lot of ice in my freezer as I don't have much frozen food and like someone else noted above, it's more energy efficient. So I have 4 trays (2 are vintage metal and I LOVE them!) plus a bin for loose cubes; all on the top shelf. And my bottom shelf still has room to spare. hm.

hot & sour soup.
pastini (or quinoa) with milk, asiago, and poached egg on top
thai rice noodle soup (similar to ramen but think less sodium) beefed up with shiitakes, hot sauce, seaweed, and scallions

I use an old prescription bottle for q-tips and another for tweezers and clippers.

haha! I didn't realize other people did this. But I totally will eat around what I think is the "best" part so that's my last bite. In sandwiches it's usually the middle so I can get a layer of everything. Come to think of it, I like to make sure I have an equal amount of every ingredient in the last bite too.... say one lettuce leaf, one tomato, one cucumber for a salad.

Deftgirl- If you add the miso to the pot after mixing it with a small amount of broth, don't boil it. I don't remember where I heard it, but boiling miso makes it bitter or something and ruins the flavor. Plus you won't get that "bloom" when you stir it around.

I buy yellow miso because it seems to be the most versatile and I don't use it very frequently. Though I should expand using it beyond soup... I love miso dressings in restaurants and stuff, but never get around to trying it at home.

I'm vegetarian and don't miss bacon. Though I didn't like it when I did eat meat, not even the smell of it. I know, everyone says that's the best part!
bacotarian? that's funny!!

Nope. I find most of the coupons I see are for highly processed "crap" food that I try to steer clear of. And most of the boxed or canned stuff I buy is Trader Joe's brand which has no coupons obviously. But if I ever saw a coupon for say asparagus I'd definitely use it!

I have a pot rack over my stove - there is no where else in my little galley kitchen - and have no vent. My pans get a little grimy/oily, but only on the outside, and then just the side facing down/the stove. I don't find it a big deal as I use and wash all my pans pretty frequently.

I do hang the bigger frying pan in the back because I have banged my head on it a few times. Then again I'm a clutz.

As a vegetarian, I used to cook meat (turkey or pork loin) for my brothers on the holidays. (only on the holidays as the smell really bothers me) But it started really grossing me out, so now I make him do it. Ironically, I still look at it/poke it and tell my brother when it's done because he's never sure. Also, I make him cook with tin foil so I can just throw out the juices and all and not clean a "meat" pan.

Mostly though, everyone I cook for loves my vegetarian dishes and say they don't miss the meat.

I've had a subscription to their magazine for years and it's wonderful.

wow, i thought the AT crowd would be anti-stuff on top of the fridge!
i'm also surprised people put microwaves up there. only because i had a friend who did that... and she nuked wax which then fell all over her chest resulting in very bad burns/scars.

i have a cabinet over my fridge (like the photo actually) so if i put anything up there, i can't open the cabinet. so nothing resides there.

My cousin's children did something similar for a school project. It was "flat [student's name]" and they mailed it to relatives in different locales to take pictures. the "flat" person was a simple paper doll with the child's photographed face glued on. very cute, and very postage friendly! maybe someone could make a Flat Max....

I love my glass kettle (no whistler) from Adagio. The only tea I really drink at home is ginger/honey/lemon, which needs to be slowly simmered - not boiled. I tried a traditional kettle once, but the ginger ended up tasting burnt.
Also, since it's glass I can see the color of the tea and know when it's done, and visually it doesn't take up space.

empress- one of my heat and eat go-to is leafy greens (kale, chard, spinach) sauteed w/garlic, and topped with a fried egg or two, and grated cheese. one pan, 10 minutes tops; that was my dinner last night.

sounds like you have all the makings for a pot of chicken noodle soup. a little effort now that you could be eating for days.
or lentil soup... or tomato/pepper soup... needless to say, i like to make soup!

I have a stack of 25 or so sitting in my waiting for stamps. Though I know I will not receive as many as I send out, which is disappointing, but I still enjoy letting friends/family know I am thinking about them.

I also "scored" this year and got 2 boxes of recyled paper holiday cards at a thrift store for ONE DOLLAR a box! And they are nice stock too. So that motivated me to send cards out too =)
