WELL...THAT SOUNDS LIKE A TYPICAL HOLLY DAY....DEFINATELY NOT A "HOLIDAY".

SPEAKING ABOUT BEANS..I MADE CHILI YESTERDAY. GUESS WE'LL HAVE LEFTOVERS TONIGHT. BRING ON THE "BEANO" FOR ERNIE. LOL

MY MOM USED TO COOK HER BEANS WITH BAKING SODA ALSO. I THINK IT WAS HELPFUL. I DON'T REMEMBER ANY EXTRA ODORS AROUND AFTER DINNER.

I HAVE A REAL EASY RECIPE FOR BEANS SAVES ALL THAT COOKING TIME. I USED TO TAKE IT TO ALL OUR OUTDOOR BREAKFASTS AND BBQS.

ONE CAN OF BEANS (14 OZ) ONE TSP. MUSTARD, 2-4 TBSP. BROWN SUGAR.
I ONLY USE 2. ONE QUARTER CUP CHOPPED ONION, ONE QUARTER CUP KETCHUP. MIX TOGETHER AND TOP WITH CHOPPED BACON PIECES TO COVER. COVER WITH PLASTIC WRAP AND MICROWAVE FOR 14 MINUTES AT 70%. I THEN LIKE TO BROWN UP THE BACON UNDER THE BROILER. IT'S ONE OF DEREK'S FAVORITES. OF COURSE I USUALLY DOUBLE OR TRIPLE THE RECIPE. I WON DEREK'S HEART WITH THAT AND MY COLESLAW. LOL.

sorry to the people who have not had luck on ebay..I dont buy often but all but one transaction has gone smoothly. and that one the seller is just not what i would call honest and it just happened and i will leave really negative feedback (product not as pictured).
At any rate..off to work with me. have a great day everyone!!

i tried!!

i waited up...logged in to ebay 10 mins before the flatware was up..and there were more bids. by dealers (you can see their bidding and these were ALL silver and flatware) so, i just turned it off. it ended up going for $80..very reasonable but nothing i could afford. so. hopefully i will find some at a garage sale or something!!!

    I'm not a big fan of eBay, having gotten burned by a seller who bilked money out of a whole string of us. She didn't even get jail time (bilked a total of over $100,000 +). She got home detention and is supposed to pay everyone back. Like that's going to happen! I'd rather do my purchases in person after that!

    Oh well, Ebay can be frustrating. Maybe you can find some nice "estate" sales or moving sales this spring. I found a great set of soup crocks for $5 for a set of 10 in one garage sale. You never know what great find you'll see!

ahhh well

ok so. I had my heart set on a set of stainless flatware on ebay. its in the pattern i picked in 1980 then lost in 2001. It was going to be my birthday present..it sat at the price for 5 days and now, on the last hours someone bid it up and i can no longer afford it. such a shame...i was really looking forward to it!!!
but. its just stuff, right? i saved myself the cost and will continue on with the kmart specials that bend if you try to eat melon...lol. saves calories!!!

    My philosophy is that if I didn't get to purchase something, I wasn't meant to buy it. You will get your set eventually. Good things come to those who wait!

    ok now understand! a difference of what we call things between countries! I know what you mean about the new stuff though especially the forks they bend so easy....only have a few left from when we got married but it was still the best set we had...

    I always put the item in my watch file then "if" I can I only bid in the last minutes. I also do odd number like 5.83 or 3.87 some folks do even or on the quarter so you can beat them out by a couple of pennies.
