Just realized that big storm was Tues., not Wed.. That's what happens when you aren't working, I guess. I don't know what day it is half the time. The other day my daughter was leaving to take one of her grandkids to school and I asked her why she was going to school on Sat.. She said "It's Thurs....".

Haha, that has been happening to me too since I retired!

Thanks for the tip, Lodestar. The coming into your home part is scary.

I did sort of flatten out the bag once it was in the freezer but it was flexible so I could drape it over other things. Once it was frozen I fluffed it up and squashed it (no pun intended!) in a convenient corner of the freezer.

Doesn't this cause it to freeze together in a big clump? It does take up a lot of the freezer the way I do it, so an alternative method would be good.

Sort of. That's why I try to flatten out the bag when I put them in the freezer initially. They clump a little but they're pretty easy to split apart. I find they tend to stick in clumps of about four or five slices, not one massive big clump. I just take out what I think I'll need and at room temperature they separate easily. I'm going to cook them anyway so once they warm up it's not a problem.

Rest in Peace, Senator McCain. You were a good man. AZ will miss you.

Yes, I didn't always agree with him on some issues, but was ready to vote for him as president until he named his running mate. Still feel like the country could use a few more like him in Washington these days.

His place in Cornville is about six miles from me. We'd see him around town now and then. Watched the video of them bringing him into town and couldn't believe what a procession that was. Looked like every law enforcement officer in the county was in it and half the town! I didn't always agree with his politics but he was a good man, yes.

He certainly was a hero, in my opinion. I don't know how he survived the horrors he went through.

I could have voted for him but then he chose Sarah as his running mate and I quickly changed my mind.
May he rest in peace. Overall, he was a very good man.

We sure could use more like him these days.

Thinking about this they said that procession was only 90 minutes after he passed. Thinking they must have all been out there already, just waiting. That's sad.
