Well, gues what came in the mail today? I recived my citizenship papers!
AND we have an apartment! We signed the papers today and started moving things! We are going to move everything in the car and not rent a van. This will save mony.
Yesterday and today we went to the dollar store, Salvation Army store, etc. We found something called the Everything Pots. Two old Revierwear pots with lids and some otherthings. The one thing I have become obsesd with is getting a good knife. I am not going to settle for a dull knife!
We may be offline for a while since all this is costing an arm and a leg. If we do get online it will be at the library or if we get what we have here and that is free wifi by way of others who live in the neighberhood.
I am very tired so I will be going to bed.
If you know a way to help, please tell people about Hundred nights Drop in Center and Shelter. They are in need of food, blankets and money to stay open. Here is a link.
Good night, sweet dreams!

How wonderful that you got those papers! And you have your apartment. How can things get better! Well, you could maybe count the ways, but bless you! When you feel good enough about it, you'll have to share your email or address with us.

Congrats! Good wishes on your new life. Regarding cookware and knives, check TJ Max and Home Goods. They can have wonderful deals. I don't think sets of anything are worth it - decide what you use constantly and buy that.

Congrats! Things have definitely turned the corner for you, Seamus! I agree with Maggi, buy just what you use the most. It'll save on space and $$.

I'm so glad things are going well for you! Do you know how to use a whet stone? You can sharpen most dull knives into nice sharp cutting tools until you can afford a decent knife! Once you have a sharpened knife, keep it that way!

Congratulations, Seamus! You have made great strides. :) I'm so glad you found some Revere Ware pans- you're going to love them!

Keep checking at the thrift stores for a good knife. Don't settle for a light weight or ill fitting one - a good one will come your way and then it will be worth the money and your patience. Congrats on your new home. How is Carolyn doing?

About Me
I was born in cadiz, Spain but was raised on the wonderfull island of Okinawa. We moved to United States in 1972 at age 8. I am learning to cook and care for my self at age 46. This IS a chalinge!!
My favorite things to cook
Wow, so many!! I love the foods of Okinawa and Spain the best but I do make mostly Mexican food. I do live about an hour away from Mexico afterall. The food of the South is great, mum's kin moved to VA in 1632. Chinese food is allso awasome!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hmm, maby mum making real fried chicken(I dont eat chicken any more)and making greens and corn bread. Mum was from the rural South and knew how to cook! Da was from canada but I dont think he was a cook.
My cooking triumphs
Finly baked bread that was good. NOT a brick or raw. People evan asked for the recipe!
My cooking tragedies
Are only lesons. A learning tool.
