Click Delivery

Posted Thu, 01/18/18

Several months ago I began using Click List from my local grocery store. The premise is to order groceries needed online, and then drive to the store where the goods are brought to your car. It works splendidly. I detest shopping even under the best of circumstances, so Click List is like a veritable blessing for me.

Smith's Click List

The same store recently began offering home delivery for an extra $11.95. The delivery fee is rather steep, but there are days I just can't or don't want to leave my home. I'm not a hermit by any means, but sometimes I'm flooded with work and don't want to stop or break the flow.


A few weeks ago my computer mouse died in the middle of a large amount of work (the pointer would not copy or paste but instead moved the text in all different directions). The same store I order groceries from also happens to carry the mouse I use, so I was able to have it delivered the same day.

Needless to say, I'm a big fan of Click List.

Foody Cold Remedies

Posted Frit, 12/29/17

I suffered a terrible chest cold this month, which lasted for three weeks (including through Christmas). I'm just barely starting to feel better. During the illness I had little appetite for food. The most I'd eat some days was a few saltine crackers smeared with peanut butter accompanied by ice water because my throat and lungs were so raw.

This was the state of my refrigerator during the malaise:

Once I started feeling better, I made a few "stick to the ribs" meals. The first was basically Biscuits & Gravy made into a casserole of sorts (Potatoes O'Brien on bottom layer, followed by cooked linked sausages, hot biscuits and topped with country gravy.

I also made a batch of my basic dumplings, but used whole wheat flour instead of white.

I'm fully recovered from the chest cold now, but for awhile there I thought it was the literal end. I think getting better had something to do with the food!
