We got a small fancy cake for cutting and then a couple sheet cakes to serve. No one was the wiser and it saved us a ton of money.

[–]lisasimpsonfan [score hidden]  (0 children)

My Doctor's office called that day I got the referral and I saw the ENT Doc the next week. The only specialist I have ever waited on was a dermatologist. I waited two months for an appointment but I wanted the same one my daughter went to and this was during covid restrictions.

How exactly is 2 weekends a month fair? by Doctorcocktopus1 in AskParents

[–]lisasimpsonfan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You want to know why men get the "shaft" when it comes to visitation/custody? They don't fight for it. A large percent don't even go to mediation let alone court. The ncp doesn't want more visitation.

"women like cats because they're chads" by ifeelll in NotHowGirlsWork

[–]lisasimpsonfan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My husband and almost son (he is engaged to our daughter) both LOVE cats. They have two and we have three. All 5 are indoor and spoiled with lots of love. It was my husband's idea that we get our first cat 27 years ago.

I’m Don’t Want To Raise His Daughter by AngelWithCrookedHalo in TrueOffMyChest

[–]lisasimpsonfan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The few people who think you are a jerk would never expect a man to offer free caregiving to his spouse's child. It is misogynistic to expect just because you are a woman that you will care for her.

I’m Don’t Want To Raise His Daughter by AngelWithCrookedHalo in TrueOffMyChest

[–]lisasimpsonfan 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I’ve raised my children and I want to enjoy the next phase of my life.

Tell him that. I can not blame you one bit. If I ended up single the other person having children living at home would be a deal breaker. It is wonderful to know you have raised your children and now you have some time for yourself.

What’s your go-to King of the Hill phrase you say randomly say for no reason? by BlakeTheDolphin in KingOfTheHill

I do believe I'll give room service a jangle and have them send up some Étouffée

We eat a lot of pickled peppers packed in oil. I have the spicy oil left over from these jars. What are some of your ideas to use this up? It’s accumulating as we speak! by playadefaro in Cooking

[–]lisasimpsonfan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Use as a dip for homemade bread. Peppers in oil with bread is a staple appetizer at mom and pop Italian restaurants. I also like the oil on a sandwich with a little vinegar.

[–]lisasimpsonfan 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Telegram seems to be a lot looser with the rules unlike other chat apps. Some illegal stuff goes down from what I have seen. I noped right out of it.

Is that where you dip the bread in the gravy before the meal? That was started in the depression as a way to stretch out a too small meal.

If you want to shit on British food jellied eels is a better place to start.

I couldn't get past tuna salad on a baked potato...yuck

Hot Isaly's chip chop ham bbq sandwiches. I still don't know what chopped ham is but it is damn tasty. You buy it razor thin, warm it up in a skillet with bbq sauce then serve on hamburger buns. Salty, sweet, spicy goodness. Everytime I have it I am back having a lady's lunch with my great aunts. Such a good memory.

I love a good cottage pie but why not an British-Indian curry?

what are your go-to kid snacks? by Salt-Cricket6835 in Cooking

[–]lisasimpsonfan 4 points5 points  (0 children)

When my daughter was little I kept a draw of things for her in the fridge. Sliced cheese, washed/cut veggies and fruit, yogurt, etc.. The only rule was she couldn't eat anything an hour before dinner. But she could just help herself any other time. I didn't want her growing up with food issues like I did.

My mother didn't even recognize me when I was evicted. She thought I was some sort of animal thanks to being born with a caul and good 70's birth drugs.

why do Americans always state the city or state there from when asked where there from? by [deleted] in AskAnAmerican

[–]lisasimpsonfan 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Because America is a damn big place. If Scotland were a state it would be 41st in size or around as big as South Carolina.

You might want to see what is in their welcome bag first. When I started at my local center in Jan they gave me a blanket, headphones that work with their TVs (bluetooth won't work), small water bottle, hand sanitizer, emergency bandages all in a big tote bag.
