Dorothy, it's like using Biz instead of a non-Chlorine bleach. The enzymes are what make the cleaning happen instead of simply bleaching out stains.

Since this is a regular eating day I let myself have ice cream for dessert in a measured portion. I have to buy it in small containers because it is one of those irresistible foods if I'm not really careful. Part of my "have favorite things on regular eating days so I don't feel deprived on fasting days" plan. But count the calories.

Pickled okra making tomorrow after I bought more vinegar today. I have other pickles I'd like to make also, but okra is most urgent because the plants are really producing right now.

Last weekend I got some fresh ginger hands and am going to start making tea with them. I'll keep them in the fridge for a little while, though they need to go into the freezer soon. I'm thinking of slicing then freezing, and using a slice in with a bag of green tea. The gardening guru I listen to on weekend swears by slices of ginger in his tea. Figuring out how thick of a slice will be the goal before I slice then freeze.
