Pssst! Got a sec to chat?

We are utterly thrilled when readers want to hang out and talk – whether it's amongst themselves or in response to pieces we've posted. We want Eatocracy to be a cozy, spirited online home for those who find their way here.

    Has anyone here tried rose petal preserves? I tried some on our trip and it was interesting to say the least.

      Never heard of such, but then I'm a dyed in the wool country bumpkin!

      "Interesting," you say.... Good interesting or bad interesting?

        Interesting in that when you go to take a bite (in my case on a croissant), it smells like perfume, but then the taste is sweet. Not bad, but not great (IMHO) either. Just curious if anyone else had tried it or had another opinion of it...

        Oh, and I did go to your blog a while ago, so you should have my email?? AleeD, Truth, and RH have mine as well as I can't get to your blog from work....

          This is the same blog in which I was posting Chumarino stuff but I reused it for low vision learning now.

    Good morning!

    Taking Dayquil this morning. Hopefully will help out in the long run, especially since I'm starting to get hit with a stuffy nose...

    So, what is everyone up to today?

    Good morning folks, still in my PJ's, but need to go get ready....

    OK, here's the new drapes (hubs choice) installed:

    And here are the old ones that got burned in the fire in 2008...

      Nice view you have (I think!) Yup, Orange has it!

        Thanks! The view on a clear day is about 30 miles South West, very nice for viewing fireworks on the 4th if I can stay up the late.

    Good morning all!
    It's a good day ahead in Denver if you rule out the wildfires to the north.

    How is everyone doing today?

    • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™@Truth

      Good morning to you as well. How far are the fires from you? I'm remembering ours from 2008 now as I'm just getting around to replacing back yard stuff that was burned....a little too close for comfort on that one! The good firemen actually took down the drapes, I thought so they wouldn't catch fire, then we went to move them and saw that they took them down because they were on fire! YIKES

    Happy Tuesday folks. JBJ, I left you a note on yestiddy's lounge thread. Back to the grind big time today. Speaking of grind (no, not me DJ), coffee's perkin'.

    Hugs to all and to all a wonderful day!

      Forsooth! I do not think I know what you are referring to, dear lady...

    • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™@AleeD

      Yestiddy indeed! I think we need to call the Texas Rangers as RH seems to be MIA or lost on his new run, or having so much fun without us that he has failed to check in. Demerit points are in order for sure!

      I plan to buy said brisket on Friday on my way home, and some Dr. P to let it soak in overnight, but I need/want RH's RUB recipe since he won't Fed Ex me any of his brisket...some friend huh?
