Out of 100 bulbs, these are the only two tulips that survived the squirrels. They come back every year, to rejuvenate my soul. They are the survivors and in my opinion heroes deserving of a medal. lol
This year, no one even picked them. The children are growing up in my neighborhood. lol
I went shopping and bought some soup bones because my husband loves soup, especially ox tail soup, which I croc pot all night for the flavor. They were remodeling in the store and I guess they put the wrong bones in the soup bone section. I bought them, believing they were beef, when in fact they were pork. I made my soup and my husband was a bit disappointed when he saw I put in the wrong bones.
But then I was thinking, if they don't make soup out of these bones, what do they make out of them? Then I thought .....maybe it wasn't a mistake. Maybe no one is buying pork anymore because of the flu so they slipped them into the beef bone section. I'll just leave it to being an honest mistake. It's a bit too late to return them lol
After my delicious meal in Seattle, I decided to try to make a copy of it at home. Calamari shrimp and crab were invited into my carosse and then I began shopping for the corn shallots cilantro etc... I can't wait to chop up the corn cobs so they are easier to eat on the plate. Next to the shop vac guy, who uses his vacuum to suck out anything that falls down the drain, using nylons to cover the vacuum hose, this is another "bestest" idea.
A thought popped into my mind to check where the seafood came from. They turned the seafood labels around so you couldn’t read them, which I found odd.
I discovered they all came from China. People are getting ill in China from the seafood, so disappointed, I put everything back. They put the products on special probably because no one is buying from China anymore. The other products from Portugal and California did not drop in price.
Now I see I have to be extra careful shopping and reading labels is not my forte . I just like to see it's on special and say Oh Wow! Here's a good deal. :)
I always figured the store would be careful with what it puts on it's shelves but now I have to be more vigilant. We are all told about sodium nitrite but almost every product I look at, seems to have it.
Shopping gets to be a drag this way. The more this happens, the more I advocate growing your own food. It gives your system a break from store bought food, where you have no control of what its grown on or prepared with, before it is shelved.
It gives you a reason to recycle leaves from trees.
This is my thought to share for today.
Peter I am watching the news and hope you are not in the areas they are showing.
