Today is "Clean the Camper" day, as every Monday is. I'll be making an on-going shopping list, as I do most weeks. Some items are always on the list. Salad makings, Bread, Colas... but I'll tell you, I did not put any colas in my cart last night (Jerry didn't shop with me last night, he stayed in the van) I refuse to pay $2 for 2 liters. Not when other stores charge much less for the same cola off the same truck. I have a Soda Stream and I know how to use it !. . . I made up some pink Lemonade drink for today, but tomorrow I may make it fizzy. I have found that I can use the water I make up from the Soda Stream to add "bubbles" to my Jell-O. Jerry didn't say one way or the other if he liked it, last time I did it.
To make my potatoes today, I'm going to put the last of my white potatoes in the crock pot once I get the dishes done and cook them on low all day. with just a bit of water and the potatoes on top of a steamer basket. these potatoes just don't seem to want to cook well at all. I bought red potatoes to use once these white ones are gone.
Salad, Burger, Baked Potatoes,
1 taco seasoning packet
¼ - ½ cup crushed crackers or bread crumbs
½ - 1 cup grated cheese (cheddar, marble or mozzarella)
1 cup salsa (optional)
I am creating... I read about how you can use Permanent marker to write or draw on coffee cups or other ceramic items.. Well, I tried it yesterday, with just black marker on a slightly chipped dessert bowl. I used both black and some red on the bottom.. before I baked it, I experimented by, once I used the red on the bottom, I used nail polish removed see if it would remove the marker. Yes it does. So, I re-marked the red on the bottom of the bowl and baked in the roasting oven at 350F for 30 minutes, starting with the bowl in a cold oven, letting it warm up, then allowing it to cool down in the oven. I removed it and wouldn't you know, I tried removing the red with more nail polish remover... and it did remove the red, so baking it didn't really set it but it was a bit harder to remove but it did remove it. Once it was cooled off, I did try hand-washing it and it didn't wash off or fade. So, although it's not as permanent as I would like, I know I can still pick up white (or other light colored) cup and "fancy" them up a bit. When I was telling Jerry about it. He wondered why I would want to do that.. what he doesn't know is that I plan on making a cup for him, for Valentines day. Jerry isn't much of a coffee drinker but he does like hot tea every now and then.
