Two more action figures I didn't own from the local toy and collectibles shop along with a little bit of gas for the car.

A trans fat-free pie crust, some everything bagels and low fat cream cheese. Some other odds and ends as well.

I've been really bad at the grocery store lately. Must get back on track.

I've seen it called "flip top", and "EZ cap", but it looks to me like "swing top" is more commonly used.
'Swing top' makes sense to me and is easy to remember!
Yep, that's what I call them too. "Swing-tops" or "swing-top stoppers".

I bought McDonalds yesterday. Stock, not burgers. But it made me think; they should give you the option to take part of your dividend as tax-free burgers.

Feel like sharing details? I'm always interested in trying something new.

I bought a lighted magnifying mirror. I had one before without the light but it makes a big difference. I already have a love/hate relationship with it.

^Instead just having shrimp or pasta like we usually do, I decided to make Beef Milanese with Panko-style breading. Maybe I'll throw some mushrooms in as well. I also have some Jasmine rice and some peas.
It will be a fast but less boring meal---I hope.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Bought a couple of jars to steep rosa rugosa hips in:


Are those also called swing top jars? -or do they have another name?

I love those jars, trekkiedane!

My new purchase:





I've only had it for a few hours and all I've managed to do so far is to attach the lens, but I'm already in love.
