Not the case with everyone in the household.
My hubby manages to boil over his oatmeal at least once a week.
Then he will leave the mess or pour water around the burner to *soak* the mess and put a kitchen wash cloth over it.
Guess if you cant see it, its not there.
He drives me nuts sometimes.

but he does a good job with bbq-ing.

OH and I noticed I have sauce on my ceiling too.
Yay I am not the only one!

I dated someone briefly with severe OCD. My stove top would never be clean enough for him. Even if he did it himself lol

He got upset once that I filled a metal pot with water and bleach to clean the floors. He wouldn't eat at my house anymore. Even after I bought a bucket.

My paint is supposedly to be washable. Lol magic eraser works pretty well.

I'm short though and would need a ladder to reach my ceiling.

My guy loves to clean, but not neat freak and is handy. Told him he has plenty to do when he comes home. He cleans up after me with no complaints and doesn't freak out.

Maybe one day I'll be able to afford a cleaning lady again!

My son's calculator for school is going to cost 100 dollars. It is insane!

I'm working as much as I can now, so when he comes home all my debt is taken care of except the mortgage.

Then luxuries of a cleaning lady will fall back into the picture.

Have you tried getting a used one on ebay? I remember a calculator that I needed at work costing about $120 from our regular supplier. I found one on ebay for $32. The company wasn't set up to buy things on ebay so I bought it myself and submitted a reimbursement request because I couldn't handle the thought of paying 4x more than necessary even though it wasn't my money.

Yeah, but where we live if we wait for cold weather to make soup we'd eat salads most of the year.

I do make cold cucumber, leek and potato soup often in the summer and sometimes I had crab or shrimp to it.

Even before I saw this post I was looking up black bean soup recipes. I have a bag in the kitchen and it is begging me to use it. I usually make black bean and rice like in Miami, but I want more of a soup even though it isn't hearty bean soup weather.

I was going to make some sliders last night. Only I couldnt find the Kings Hawaiian rolls. I got plain hamburger buns instead.
I canned that idea and instead used some of the Zatarains dirty rice mix (added a bit more rice with min rice) and hamburger, made a salad and called it dinner.
Now what to do with the hamburger buns. (hub does not like white bread nor hamburger buns.....lol.....he probably dosnt like the rolls either ...silly man)

Maybe I will use the fish fillets and make some coleslaw and have fish sandwhiches tonight. Not sure how many left in the freezer (fish)

You strain vegetables out and add new ones....Is this for vegetable soup? I have never done that. I would love to know how you make your soup...and what part of the country you are in

Why do you throw the veggies out? Just add the new ones for the toothsome feel, but the others have fiber and all sorts of other benefits!

I strain the the whole pot. I take a whole turkey carcass plus the legs and wings add 1 big onion 4 carrots, 4-5 ribs celery put it in crock pot add poultry seasoning salt, pepper, other veggies if I have them.fill rest of pot with water cook it on high at least 10 hours, then strain toss all the junk, do veggies diced well, add turkey meat I put aside cook till veggies are done add rice barley or what ever. I don't old veggies as they have no flavor or any real use except as filler, I like the soup much better when I use fresh stuff, and I don't need that much fiber. I'd rather get vitimins w/fiber!!

I do it for almost all meat and veggie soups. I don't for for all, but with chicken or turkey I do it makes it so much more rich and flavorful. I live in Alabama, Florida before and New York before that. Also I mainly hate to ever get a piece of bone in soup. I won't eat anymore of it if I do. I find doing it this way saves me from wasting my time cooking something I'll toss out if I get a piece of bone!! Besides it really comes out nice. Especially most of the fat is also skimmed if its cold when strained.

Interesting! I generally pull the fowl out and put it in a colander over the soup pot and let it drain off. Then pull the meat off, and after that, chop it. I never get a bone that way. In all the years I made soups for the restaurant, I never missed a bone.

After that I cool the stock and break off the fat layer when it's cold.
