    Dazz, when you’re on skype with “your man” are you au naturel??

    The other night I was watching an episode of Cheaters and I could’ve sworn Joey Greco had a tail on you.

    One good thing for Lois there is she will get to go home soon. he Pennys are going to “sample” her entire inventory. But don’t worry, they aren’t going to buy anything. I’m sure they don’t care, either, that the food demo workers in some stores are paid according to how much product they sell.
    Leaky, I am so very glad you are back. For me personally but more so for Marg. She really took it hard. She took to sampling the recipe a lot and bringing home strange guys. Welcome back.

    Yes, TWO plastic bottles is ever so much more “elegant” than one….

    Maybe they could up the elegance level even more, by cleaning out the fridge door…

    If you must eat Szechuan pizza rolls, you might as well also have barbecue sauce, tartar sauce and blue cheese dressing.

    (Or in the Pennys’ case, “Blu Cheez style dressing.”)

    Note to self:
    Fire Lois.

    Leaky…. shhhh….
    she’s sensitive you know…
    wait till we KNOW she’s out of town….

    Hi Marg….
    didn’t see you standing there…..

    ♪ ♫ ♪ ☺ ♫

    Are you driving?
    Are you sure that’s a goo…
    Excuse me?
    Oh…. no reason…..

    But say, would you like a lift…. to the …um…
    fishing camp?

    X … from yesterday….
    it was actually a THREE -fer Thursday.

    I suppose to make up for some of the no-fer ones.

    Tonight we’re back to one…at least, that’s all I’ve spotted so far.

    I think the traditional ketchup would solve all difficulties. An understated little condiment – but I think you’ll be amused at it’s presumption.

    And Burl – more than five sauce bottles on the table just screams ‘nouveau riche’ (or perhaps that should be ‘retch’. . . )

    Oh, good God, forget the soy sauce, somebody pass me a bottle of Pepto!

    Neither—they really should invest in that terrifying bright pink sweet & sour sauce, that would be just the condiment they are looking for, I think.

    They’ll buy the generics or knockoffs as these would appear to be (“Ah-choy” vs. “Lachoy”) so they might actually be auditioning for one of their summer pool soiree’s. Lord knows they each need an extra layer of “insulation” for that first dip in the pool.
    Marg…..don’t let anyone dissuade you from your dreams (even if they are “induced” episodes and involve acrobats from Cirque de Soleil).

    Typical of what you see at COSTCO….. Some of the new offerings are tasty and good…. but be sure to read the labels…
    BURL should be working on some project and leave the ladies to plan AND shop for food. His being there results in their buying lots of junk food… ! ! !

    BURL go home……

    When he Skypes I am wearing whatever I happen to be in or out of when he catches me. If it is one of my kids, I throw on a robe. Neither of us is “cheating” because we are both divorced now for many years. And even tho’ I will never want anyone else, I’m sure he has other ladies when I’m not around (he’s too good NOT to).

    @Paco, the ketchup is one that I really dislike ever since reading a WSJ article (years ago) about what % of mouse droppings, bug parts etc – and that’s assuming that it is fresh!
    Even my own marinara is made from scratch (though I don’t have availability of the best tomatoes so I buy Italian tomatoes and tomato paste but cook and puree my own brocalli heads with those tomatoes and use red wine to thin the paste, finish with lots of organic oregano, basil etc. I can still have mine on quinoa pasta (part of breakfast yesterday).

    Liven the event with a bowl of chinese hot mustard and a bowl of wasabi next to the guacamole bowl.
