Food on my mind today. I was so tired last night I went to bed quite early, so early I forgot to put the tarp over my lonely eggplant, but it was fine. In addition to cooking and freezing lots of eggplants, and freezing peppers, I may see about canning something over the weekend. More bread-and-butter pickles with zucchini, and maybe some eggplant and pepper stuff that Dean makes that is quite delicious.

I've been reading Dan's thread about smoking cheese. I could smoke some salmon for Thanksgiving. I'll have to see what is available - probably frozen.

Networking today about Thanksgiving - my son doesn't fly home because the travel time and the visit would be right when he needs to finish schoolwork for the semester. I have a friend out there he could have the meal with, if he doesn't have other plans already. The first year he was able to stay in his dorm, but last year they had to clear out so he went to a town about 75 miles away with a friend. He's in a house now so I suppose he could cook his own meal.

Getting ready to send several large items to the Salvation Army; negotiating a new mattress (my ex bought one of these big latex ones but it had a flaw, so they sent another, said to keep the first. That also had a flaw, so they sent a third. One is on his bed, one is on my son's bed over there, and one is in the garage. I'll take that off his hands - the flaw is only visual.)

As for accountability, I'm getting more dog walks in lately, and will go out at lunch around the neighborhood.
