We invite people to our home for meals at fairly regular intervals (so glad we are finally done with selling our house and renovating Phase One of our new house so we can do normal things like that again!) and I’ve recently realized that I almost always serve something Mexican or Italian when we have guests. The only thing that we could come up with is that we do serve burgers from time to time. As we were discussing it, I recalled serving Asian food a couple of times, but that was years ago and Jeremy said that didn’t count, haha. I wonder if it’s because Mexican and Italian food are pretty safe? Or maybe they are just easy to serve. Do you tend to serve these cuisines for guests, too?
I’ve mentioned before that I have problems with wearing holes in the heels of socks very quickly, and that I’m hesitant to spend much on socks because even the nicer ones I’ve bought tend to wear through just as quickly. But, I saw a good deal on some Keen socks on Zulily and got myself a few pairs.
These are not your ordinary socks, folks – they have a right and a left (admittedly, could be a pain with the laundry but with doing one load a day, it’s not a big deal), they are a very specific size (size small is women’s shoe size 4-6.5, which is smaller than what I wear but my feet are very narrow), and they have some padding on the bottom, too.
Since our new house has almost all wood or tile floors, I’ve been wearing shoes a lot more (feels better on feet and I kind of like wearing shoes when I know I can just wipe up any dirt I bring in, instead of having it sink into the carpet) so I don’t know if I’ll be able to say if these socks hold up better than others I’ve tried. But for what it’s worth, I do really like them and think there is actually something to warrant paying more! (You can get them for around $10 on 6PM.)
Today for school, we had an apple tasting and my kids picked Golden Delicious as their favorite and begged me to buy them all the time. Some day, they are going to grow up and regret telling me that they preferred the mushy, tasteless Golden Delicious over the crisp, sweet Honeycrisp but I guess I’ll buy them the cheaper apples if that’s what they want!Join 10 other person in sharing your own random chat or comments
