Brigadeiro is a solid go to for using up sweetened condensed milk.

Pour 1 can into sauce pot on medium, add 5 spoons of nesquik powder, stir it so no lumps form, occasionally scrape the bottom of the pan and sides. When you scrape the bottom and it takes 2 to 3 seconds for the mix to cover it again, it is ready. Pour into a bowl or whatever and stick in the fridge to cool. Then either eat with a spoon or slather your hands in butter and make little balls rolled in sprinkles for a more traditional fancy look.

My neighbor brought me apple strudel last night and I just remembered so now I get to have it for breakfast!

Finally dealt with categorizing all my Amazon purchases in Monarch. Between husbands work stuff and some subscribe and save, then some purchases and returns, I’d fallen way behind.

Whoa. A client who just ordered his kitchen last week sent me a thank you card for my help. It had a $500 check in it. :exploding_head: we rarely get cards and basically never get gifts. I’ve probably gotten 2 gifts in 30 years.

Save the card for your annual report.

My boss actually opened the card because he didn’t see that it was addressed to me. His response was “sorry I opened your mail but holy crap!” Ha.

Managed just shy of 15lbs of peppers from scratch and dent (got there just as they were dumping out the crates). And was then efficient and processed ~1/2 of them for freezing when I got home with the rest ready to go tomorrow. Would be an even bigger victory if I’d remembered the gloves before I started on the hot peppers, but so it goes.

There was a house centipede in the sink this morning, normally I would ignore it and let it continue eating other bugs, but N has a big job interview today and really hates them, so I relocated it outside. I also did not tell them I did this. Not really a tiny victory but I don’t know where else to post to get my spouse of the year award, hahah

Despite a somewhat comical number of mishaps today, I’m actually having a really good day, AND I get snuggles from darling Kitty.

I got $8 Loop earplug knock offs, with low expectations. But they’re great! I can sleep comfortably on my side with them in and they block a lot of noise.

A small but very nice life upgrade, for $8.

This find should be started with the forums!
Loops are great and cheap fake Loops sound even greater.

There are also multi packs of this type. I’m ordering more next time.

I opened the spreadsheet/data base I’ve been building the past 3 months to find it double printed???

WTF?

Told DH about it, he’s working --therefore, the tech. expert I live with couldn’t attend my problem… so I used “the google academy of tech. advice.” Somehow, I saved a 2nd copy atop my first. I managed, despite a not-great write up to fix the problem. YAY!

Many, many times, the fix is… DH fixes it. I hate that. I try and do things without him, and he ends up doing it anyway. BUT NOT THIS TIME!
