Interior at Kiss The Cook
The interior at Kiss The Cook is kitschy-cute

“Every meal served with a kiss!” That’s the motto at Kiss The Cook (KTC), a favorite restaurant on W Glendale Ave in Glendale and where we went for breakfast this morning. The kiss, of course, is a Hershey’s Kiss placed on your bill at the end of the meal. The decor at KTC is eclectic, with mostly kitschy antiques and household items. We ate inside, but they also have outside seating. On Saturdays you should plan to get there by 7:45 AM at the latest, for it gets quite busy after 8:00! Continue reading Busy day. Neighbor update.

Burrito breakfast. Work on newsletter.

Sunday morning at our house means one of Elaine’s special Breakfast Burritos. A truly outstanding treat. I can eat about half so I save the other half for lunch. Jimmy Dean Regular Sausage mixed Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage, cooked with red and green peppers and onions, and served on a flour tortilla with scrambled eggs and shredded cheese and salsa. Yum!

Let’s deliver. Ear, ear!

It took more than a half hour instead of the usual twenty minutes or so, but our volunteer team folding newsletters got the job done. We were short a couple of volunteers who were on vacation. This newsletter was more complicated to assemble because we had FOUR inserts and they had to be assembled in a specific order for a couple of them to work. But the team pulled it off!

Printer stand. Quiet day.

printer stand
My new printer stand gets my printer up off the desk and prevents stuff on the desk from interfering with paper coming out of the printer.

For a long time I have been frustrated as paper coming out of my printer encounters papers or other stuff on my desktop and does not come out cleanly. Finally I did something about it. I had found a solution at the Staples web site and went to the closest store and bought one today. Actually, the device is sold as a monitor stand, but it works just as well for printers. The design comes in two sizes – the large stand (22″ wide) and the standard stand (14″ wide). I got the large size and it fits my printer very well. We also tried to put Elaine’s Cricut machine on the stand but the space between its feet is too short to fit on the stand top. We’ll get another for her. Continue reading Printer stand. Quiet day.
