A Great Find

I always love finding something useful. I recently saw this box of plastic jar lids at the store and thought 'Why in the world would anyone want to buy these when you can just use rings?" Two weeks later I was mixing up some salad dressing that I put in a glass canning jar and had to fool around with plastic wrap and a jar ring. After using it several times, the dressing had made quite a mess and it dawned on me. This is why the Ball people made those plastic lids.
So off I went to Fleet Farm and bought a box. I have used almost the whole box on jars of dry mixes, rice, and today's newest batch of Ranch dressing from scratch. I love them.

Yesterday was our 24th wedding anniversary. It didn't really dawn on me until late in the day. We don't ever celebrate it. We seem to have a lot of birthdays and other celebrations that fall in May and June, so by the time our anniversary rolls around, I guess we are just too pooped to party. I am happy we have made it thru our first 24 years and hope for another great 24.

Today we have a tile person upstairs and a plumber in the basement. No water!! Yikes!! Guess I will have to sneak out into the woods if I have to go.

  1. I've never seen those lids. Are they only for canning jars or any jar with a metal lid?
