I had it in my head to walk long distance to Penny's today, and then on to big box stores, w/ cab home. penny's is selling a set of three stock pots for a total of $8. I have a stock pot, but lost my large one during the move here. Much better for making large batches of dog food. And, at big box stores, there are things I still need before hunkering doon. I have a credit check to use there. However, I thought it would be easier to shop Penny's online - but I would have to spend $50 for the free shipping.. Debatable. I am over-leveraged as it is. AND - I canNOT get my computernet to bring up full Penny's pages. I do not like the thought of being seen trekking along the hwy on Black Friday, or to contend with the onslaught of shoppers indoors. Always embarrassing when shopping for a new bra.
The fool downstairs apparently banged on the ceiling/wall last night around 11:pm, when he thought I was sleeping. Resented my cooking, etc., yesterday. Old coot. There is a 5% chance that the noise was my dog scratching, and knocking the floor - but it seemed way too loud for that. Fortunately, I was well enough, and on the computer, with headphones on, so I don't care. But, this morning, there was another bang around 6 or 7:am, (when he again thought I was sleeping. Not sleeping but waving). The stats all line up: 1 - Precipitation is coming; 2 - Holiday, and 3 - He put out his garbage for the week, which somehow makes him think he is more responsible than me. Cannot fathom that I do not NEED to put out my recyclables less than once every two or three months now. And my scanty trash goes into a dumpster at the gas station. And I keep my wet garbage in a bag in my fridge of freezer. Looks like I am way more responsible than him, but this is how asshole people always have been. Scrooge that.
I cooked up the turkey, which turned out fine. All time was in roaster, this time. Last time, roaster seemed to stall the process. IDKWTF. GF stuffing is always a challenge, mostly keeping it loaf-like. Best part was the walnuts. Good idea. Too many caraway seeds, and a little turnip made it offy. I am thinking it would be cool to, instead of stuffing, make a kind of bread-pudding/fruitcake as stuffing instead. Also made broccoli. Instant potatoes+gravy today. Dog is in heaven. He was very bouncy outside this morning.
Besides a little left-over pizza and burritos contending for my taste buds, I made some catfish the other day, w/ mushrooms, GF macaroni, bacon-flavoured greens, peas, vin/coconut-milk, garlic, etc. So amazingly good - I could not stop eating it. Turned out like a Thanksgiving green bean casserole, by chance, but fishy, and much less fat. Also similar to a tuna casserole, as I also used a little canned salmon in there. It's shameful. Verilly, I will be returning to pantries for the next year, just to check all this spending. (And will have CFS to pay, aft this renewed activity. See how I push again, as soon as I can. I am crazy CRAZY).
