My cleaning lady didn't show up this morning, so I had to call to report that she missed two weeks. I am paying for the cleaning service and the home health care through a county program. Even though the rates I pay are heavily discounted, I still don't want to pay for no service. I have no idea what happened with her and I really hate to see her go. She did a wonderful job. Wherever she is, I wish her well. Those in charge of the program will find me a new cleaning person. If the new cleaner is half as thorough as the other, I will be happy.
On another note, I saw some videos about canning bacon. I already can bacon bits, but the videos were about canning bacon slices. So in the interest of adding to my home canned goods stash, I ordered four pounds of bacon which should give me 8 pints. I will give this a try over the weekend and let you know how it works.
I have another food experiment going. I made up two batches of baking powder biscuits. One batch I cut and baked the normal way, put them in a freezer bag when cool and popped them into the freezer. The idea was that when I want a biscuit or two I can grab a couple and heat them up for a meal.
The second batch I rolled out, cut the dough into biscuits, put them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and froze them for about an hour. Then I took the frozen raw biscuits and put them in a freezer bag and back into the freezer they went. The theory is that I can take out as many as I want and bake them.
I will test both methods to see which one I like best. It is sort of fun to test new ideas to see if they really work.
