A bit of this-n-that this week!

saladCOOKING FEEDBACK:  Last week’s topic of cooking for one or two brought some feedback that I want to share.  One of our residents shared a website called Supercook. com.  She likes this website because you can get recipes based on the ingredients you have in your refrigerator or cupboard. Click HERE to go directly to this website.  If you are looking for new ideas this is a great resource. Thanks for the great feedback Janice!

WATCHING THE RIVERS:  RiverThis is the time of year that we see rivers rising and hear the predictions for this river or that.  We live in an area with multiple rivers that are fun to watch most of the time and important to watch sometimes.  We do have roads that flood occasionally (Such as Joppish), and avoiding those roads when the rivers are up is the best plan.   Here  are two websites to save as Favorites in your browser.  For Lewis County rivers click HERE for the link.  For a broader view click HERE for a map covering the state and down into Oregon.

A MONDAY ADVENTURE:  The annual United Way Community Health Fair at Thorbeckes (91 SW Chehalis Ave., Chehalis) on Monday, February 13th.  This is a great event which displays Thorbeckes offerings plus other local services and business.  It’s a free event from 4 pm to 7 pm on Monday.  Raffles, door prizes, give-aways and demonstrations are promised!  Call 360-748-3744 with questions.  This is a fun event so go take a look.

    This is a “why didn’t I think of it” idea from a publication “the family handyman”. On page 15 is the “Trash Bag Hoop”. Use a 14 inch wooden embroidery hoop to hold open a 13 gal. kitchen trash bag. Take apart the hoop and lay the open end of the bag over the inside hoop, cover it with the outside hoop and tighten. This will hold open the bag while you are working. I wonder if there might be a 24 inch hoop for the big lawn bags. I plan to explore.. I always read your blogs even if I am late doing so. Thanks for all your hard work. Helen R.
