tip time and birthdays

Before your tip of the week… a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my “birthday sister”, Laura Dileen Galloway Heffron! Laura and I have been friends since high school, when we discovered our birthdays were only one day apart. Laura was my maid-of-honor 26 years ago and is Marissa’s godmother. I was a bridesmaid in her wedding and I am godmother to 2 of her 3 sons. Happy Birthday, Laura! I love you!

This picture is of Laura and I visiting my Aunt Beverly in Del Mar, CA back in the summer of ’78 or ’79. Laura and I were just high school girls standing there all awkward – while Bev poses all sexy… too funny! Bev’s birthday is Sunday, so I’ll take this opportunity to say Happy Birthday, Aunt Bev, I love you too!

I shared with you yesterday that my mom is the oldest of 8 kids, well Bev is the second youngest and is only 9 years older than me (and of Laura too, for that matter), so we’ve always been close. Kisses and Hugs to you both! xoox

Weekly Tip #3

Don’t waste those little bits of condiments left clinging to the sides of jars and bottles.

  • Pour hot water into the empty bottles of honey, syrup, or molasses, shake vigorously , then use the liquid when making yeast, quick breads, or dressings.
  • Pour a little vinegar into those empty bottles of ketchup or mustard, shake vigorously and use in your homemade vinaigrette and salad dressings.
