Oh vorbau, *lots of hugs* You are a far braver person than I for braving the Bucket of Doom.

Bravery had nothing to do with it. This was survival.
Let's roll. (And you can't scare me; I've had teenagers.)

I don't think I will ever eat sauerkraut again.  I laughed so hard I got the flippin' hiccups!

This thread is the Greatest Diet Aid Ever. ;D

Strangely, it made me WANT some.

We don't have any. :(

I had one today, but its minor compared to the sauerkraut escapade.  I left Friday for my friends to spend a week watching her dogs.  I went home today to get clothes for the week for work.  I KNEW I had forgotten to take the kitchen trash out, but didn't think there was anything particularly stinky in there.  I was wrong.  a mini watermelon i found languishing in the back of the fridge had decided to liquify.  And as my plastic garbage can is one that you step on the bottom to open the lid, the mechanism is such that its not a solid bottom.

So there was a smell as soon as I opened the door, and on the kitchen floor, a trail from the bottom of the can, over to the counter across the kitchen.  Ewwww.  So I had to triple back the bag, mop the floor, adn rinse out the can.  Thankfully not that bad, and only a couple days old.

Hmm. I think I have an episode of Good Eats where he makes sauerkraut. . . Have to find it because now I want home made kraut. Until then, store bought will have to do.

Forget hot dogs.  Bratwurst and sauerkraut is the way to go.

But the hot dogs are sitting forlornly in my fridge*

*Because when I bought them, I forgot to buy buns to go with them.

I think your dad needs to plan his garden a bit better.  Maybe next year you can encourage him to try more different things and smaller amounts of the big four?

My dad loves his garden. He is currently a household of 1, but still plants the same sized garden as he did when I was growing up and our family of 5 couldn't keep up with. He plants his zucchini in waves. Half of one row, then the other half of the row the following week, half of row 2 gets planted in week 3, and the last half of row 2 gets planted in week 4. It stretches out the growing season, but makes the intake more manageable.

Though I swear that if he plants more than 4 tomato plants this year I'm going to go rip them out! (he loves canned tomatoes, and tomato sauce/salsa/marinara but I'm the only one who knows how to put them up). Also, if he plants more than 3 rows of broccoli this winter, I'm changing my number!
In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz

You can give him my number. I loooooove broccoli.

YAY.  The zit that's been growing at the inside corner of my left eye for the last month or so FINALLY popped last night.  It's been driving me nuts - tweezers couldn't pop it (not like I could get fingernails near it), so I was worried it was a little cyst or something.  I even poked at it with a sharp pin on Saturday night, and no dice.  However, I think that poking weakened it, as when I tried to tweeze it last night after my shower, it went pop and all that goo came out.  Ahhhh.  :)

Got a bad ingrown toenail right now that has been giving me puss and blood for about a week. Glad it is summer and I can wear open toed shoes and sandals. Even though I am able to get a pearl sized bead of puss out of it every couple of hours, I think there is a larger pocket that I am not getting. May need to use a blade to get at it, needles are not working.

Soak it in salt water, as hot as you can stand. It will help encourage the yeech out.
