tigerose: Good Meowning! Happy gotcha day to lily. I powered thru the thread this morning after I got up.laulaja scritches applied to Eli the bitey. He sends purrs back atcha.Eli has done a nice job soaking up tears this week. On Tuesday I was informed that I had been laid off due to a reduction in positions. Now, why did they hire me last year and have a person " float" between schools? They put that person in my position..So now I did not get to say goodbye to staff. My kids are going to come back and be sad. And I have no idea what will happen to the Summer reading program. So, I have not felt too social...

Hope you don't have smoke damage.Nah, it was one of those little flare ups under the burner, except when I said "sonuva...." and sprinkled a bit of flour on it to smother it, it flared up - which I have NEVER had happen before! - and started licking the bottom of the stove vent top thingie. At which point I quietly muttered something like "f*ck" and dumped the whole can of flour on it and pushed it around to smother the flames. The fire alarm went off and that brought my mom running, and she over reacts to EVERYTHING. Seriously. I had to get stitches in the back of my head about three years ago because of one of her classic over reactions to me dropping a plastic cup. (A full minute later, while I am still bent over cleaning up the mess, she came up behind me and then screamed "WHAT HAPPENED?!?" like a smoking crater full of mangled corpses suddenly appeared in the hallway and she was shocked and horrified and trying to figure out if she should run or not. I was startled and jumped and hit the back of my head on the open door of the cupboard that I had grabbed the dust rag I was using to clean from, resulting in much blood flow and blurred vision. Total over reaction, and I am still not convinced she felt bad or she'd still not do that sort of random screaming in unwarranted panic thing)NO WONDER I didn't feel like cleaning up the flour mess, especially with mom right behind me running her mouth non-stop trying to figure out WHO DID WHAT and if her stove was ruined. I dunno mom, but you can shut up, make yourself useful or go away. Pick one. I don't want you behind me right now - or any other time - so I'm all for "go away".My family is so weird, I swear.Bah! Just noticed I am out of kit ...

Timid Goddess: Have you tried cooking with Truvia Baking Blend? It tastes just like you used regular sugar, but only 1/4th the calories of regular sugar. To substitute, just use half as much in the recipe instead of the regular sugar.
