Kitchen Organization Pt. I

Sign in to follow this  


I'm trying to decide which kitchen appliances should go and which should stay- this month I'm evaluating the Kitchenaid. I used it a lot right after I got it (almost 10 years ago now) but not much for years now. It's easier than I remembered, maybe just from more practice in the kitchen in general.  So, pizza dough.


I've... I've ordered worse? That's not really a high bar, though- most of the veg pizza in town is a solid "meh".

I call my KitchenAid mixer my "kitchen tractor" since I can add on other implements.  It lives in precious counter space and I use it at least once a week.

Pizzas look great!  When we have the FJCon you are on pizza duty :)

I use my standing mixer at least 5x a month. I love making homemade whipped cream with it, as well as various doughs. But they do take up a lot of counter space, so it's definitely worth evaluating.

I used to make bread/pasta/muffins/cookies/etc all the time but I stopped when my husband was diagnosed with type II diabetes. It's been nice to re-evaluate- I got a spiralizer-plus as a holiday gift, and I have some other attachments, but I always felt like its main use was carbs, and I don't feel that way now. It's just useful.

Have you tried cooking your pizza on a pizza stone instead of on the baking sheets? I've also had good luck with a cast iron pan.

      Lori’s latest is about how women are really happier being at home with their kids and cleaning their homes. I sent a comment asking her her opinion of women who have maids and nannies even when they don’t work. I doubt she’ll post it.

      Not all women want to be at home, some women like to work.  That is their choice and it's a perfectly valid choice.  I would have preferred to be home longer, I went back to work when my daughter was 8 weeks old, then we moved from Texas to Oklahoma and we managed me to be at home with her from right before she was 1 year old until right before her 2nd birthday.  We put her in daycare then.  And she turned out fine!  Lori is an idiot. I think I said that before, but it's still true.  And for the record - I did not have a maid when I was at home (still don't) but I would not have said no to one! :)

      Confirmation of speculation here about hinky things in their early relationship.

      Daily fail: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5289527/David-Louise-Turpin-eloped-16.html

      David kidnapped Louise at 16, she was brought back by the police at which point her dad was mad at her and said she'd made her choice and let them marry.

      This also broke her parents marriage up.

      Her 2 youngest siblings (one was 3 when she married) and the other is a half sibling who wasn't born, have disowned her.  The Christian counsellor sibling (who loves her and is praying for her) isn't mentioned in this one.

      It think it’s so crazy to see her childhood photos. It’s hard to look at her as a young girl imagining that she would grow up to be a monster.

      I think the only inappropriate ad that's ever really floored me was a pro-Trump ad during the election. I'm glad they wasted money, but it definitely proved the limits of current technology to me. (I suppose the "equal air time" thing might have played into that one.)

      It’s like Google bot doesn’t even go here! (Or maybe it only read one of the many iterations of PPS’ posts?)

      I've never done one of these before but I'm sad and I need to vent.
      We're on holiday at the moment and staying with my mum, 800km from home. While we're away, which is for 2 weeks, we're having a neighbour/family friend feed our 3 cats. She does this for us every year and is an experienced cat owner herself, so I trust her.
      We have 2 cats who are both senior cats but generally healthy, plus a third, Zayn (my stepdaughter named him, don't ask), who is a stray who turned up at our house 18 months ago and refused to leave. He's about 5 and has had a number of health problems related to being a stray, including being FIV+ and having no teeth (which we had removed due to gum disease as a result of the FIV).
      Before we left we noticed that Zayn wasn't eating that much but he still seemed enthusiastic about eating so I thought he was just being fussy and he'd eat better while we were away (because when we're away he gets shut away from the other 2 cats, who normally try and eat his food). 
      We've been gone for 6 days now and today I got a text from the neighbour to say that Zayn has barely eaten anything for the last 4 days and is now so weak he can barely stand. So I asked her to take him to our local vet straight away but that vet had just closed for the day so she would have to take him to the 24-hour vet which is about 15 minutes away by car. (She doesn't drive, but her husband does.)  She asked if she could just take him to the local vet first thing in the morning, I said I think he needs to go the vet now... but it sounded like she wasn't sure how she was going to get there so eventually I gave in and said she could take him in the morning. I guess I was feeling I didn't want to impose on her any more than I already had, even though all she needed to do was take him there, because I would pay for everything over the phone. 
      It's now about 7 hours before she'll go to our place to take him to the vet, 12 hours since she saw him in that bad condition, possibly 5 days since he ate anything and I have a bad feeling that he won't have survived the night - while I know that most cats can survive quite a long time without food (and he has been drinking his water at least) he was already underweight and the FIV makes him weaker than other cats. If anything happens to him I know I'll blame myself because I didn't push harder for her to take him to the 24-hour vet, and possibly also my fault that I didn't notice before we even went away that he wasn't really eating. 
      And part of me also didn't push for her to take him to the 24-hour vet because he's been a difficult (and expensive) cat to own due to his health problems, has never really been that affectionate towards any of us and we only kept him because there was nowhere else he could go... I know I didn't push as hard as I would have done for our other 2 cats... yet still... I'm fond of him and feel like I've let him down, and I feel so helpless because I'm so far away and I can't do anything.

      @Bethella, the lemon-scented lotion you recommended came today and I am hooked! It smells incredible and it's light enough that it doesn't bother me, so I can use it several times a day. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You saved my hands!
