Using a bagel tool to thinly slice meat.

Bagel Tool to Thinly Slice MeatAfter hurting one hand, I decided to try using my bagel slicing tool to hold my somewhat frozen chicken breast firmly (and SAFELY) vertically, allowing me to cut it thinly for a meal. I think I will try it to slice ham for lunches in the future as well.

A Slurpee straw being used to remove lotion from a bottle.

Slurpee Straw Saver and CleanerA while ago, I saw a product on "Shark Tank" that was a tiny spatula tip on a long stick. It was used to clean out the last of the lotion in tall bottles. I was doing the dishes this morning and came across some Slurpee spoon-tip straws and realized they could be used for the same thing.

A woman taking something smelly from the freezer.

Removing Odors from a FreezerFreezers can develop odors for a number of reasons. Frozen food can release odors normally. This is exacerbated by power outages that can result in leakage and spoilage. Sometimes a container of baking soda will help. You may also have to empty and thoroughly clean the freezer.

Preventing Broken Eye Glass Chains

Preventing Broken Eye Glass ChainsI have wider than usual eye glass temples. Stretching the little rubber tips that go over the temples often makes them break. While I only spend $1 on them, I still have to replace them when they break.


kittens on hammock

3 Week Old Kitten Hammock ActivityJust today, the kittens crawled out of their box and started making their way towards the front door. I had a hammock with three sides tied and one side loose. They are old enough to exercise, but not old enough to climb into a regular hammock on their own. This gives them a chance to use their muscles and balance.

Perfect Basted EggsI love fried eggs but I hate when the edges get crispy. I love poached eggs but they're just a bit too droopy. Basted eggs are right in between fried and poached, and they are so easy to make.

Dog Not Eating and Seems Depressed After Being Spayed?My 11 month old Maltipoo was spayed last Wednesday. She ate and drank water when we got home and seemed OK. She has had a lack of appetite since Friday. She doesn't want her dry food, even when I wet it. I started giving her wet canned food yesterday and she does eat it, but she's not herself. She was always happy and playful before the surgery and now she seems sad/depressed. She sleeps a lot.
