This, that and other things   1 comment


It may say 75 degrees on the thermometer but with the bright sun out and the cloudless sky it feels like a typical South Florida beach day!

Got the November dogs out which reminds me that I have to get a 2022 calendar out as it is just around the corner.

2) All the ‘baby’ holiday cactus plants are blooming

3) Went to Jalisco’s restaurant on Thursday and I had their Cuban platter: chicken, pork, beef, rice, black beans, onions and plantains–plus they serve a cup of chicken soup along with their chips and salsa as you wait–even I leave filled up

!5) Right across the street from the restaurant are just 6 of the new buildings that are going up all over Fort Lauderdale–the city claims they now have 80, 000 new apartments–who they are going to rent them to plus who could afford them (!) is another story!!!  https://www.zumper.com/rent-research/fort-lauderdale-fl  but then homes are scarce and most people can’t afford the down payment!!

4) Many people have told me not to bother with an air fryer and I should have listened to them! There is basically nothing wrong with them, (the fryer–not my friends!) except learning how to get the ‘fried’ taste plus if you have a indoor grill, a microwave oven and a crock-pot, as I have, the fryer just takes up space. Granted the 2 quart fryer I got takes up very little space and is convenient for 1 person but it is still a waste of money and time as most items will cook faster in the microwave or on the grill.Macy’s has it on “Black Friday” sale for $24.99 which is really a good price if you have time and patience—I have time but not patience when waiting to eat!

  1. My toaster/convection oven has an air frying feature. I’ve tried it a few times and was unimpressed.
