KITCHEN TIP: to measure solid shortening (i.e. Crisco) * for example: if you need 1/2 cup shortening, fill glass measure with 1/2 cup water ~ add shortening until water level reaches 1 cup **
It's just one of those days today when I feel like I've been physically wrestling with my computer! ... First, I was logged out of Facebook and couldn't log back in b/c computer said it didn't recognize the device I was using (??? ~ same computer I've used for years!) ** then FB showed me random photos and asked me who they were (what happened to a security QUESTION? How do I know who those people are, when they're random people in photos that friends posted!) ** finally got in, but it's SLOW!! ** no more venting ~ think I'll go work it off at the gym instead :)
