"White Sauce" a la Mexican Restaurant

Preparation: this garlicky recipe must be made ahead and refrigerated for 18 - 24 hours to allow the ingredients to marry and the flavor to fully develop

Uses: chip, veggie or french fry dipper, quesadilla dip or drizzle, tostada/taco drizzle sauce, burrito sauce, salad dressing, etc.


30 oz jar good brand mayonnaise
( - - note: mayo flavor affects recipe)
1 cup real cultured sour cream
( - - note: one without additives)

6 med garlic cloves, pressed or rasped
( - - note: 4/5 large; 8/9 small)

1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

16 lg,18 med or 20 small pimento-stuffed green olives (lactic acid style) and...
...1 Tbsp of the green olive juice

1/2 tsp sea or fine kosher salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp ground cumin

Spicy ingredients (adjust to taste)

1 - 4 dashes hot pepper sauce
1/8 - 3/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
1/8 - 1 tsp red pepper flakes

1/8 - 1/2 cup milk (2 to 8 Tbsp)


Place all but the spicy ingredients and the milk into the bowl of a food processor

Blend till smooth

Add the minimal amount of the spicy ingredients

Blend and sample for preferred "heat", keeping in mind that a more spicy taste will develop as the sauce "cures" in the refrigerator

Repeat adding and tasting for spicy ingredients until taste preference is reached

Add milk and blend to desired consistency - - thicker (less milk) for Dip or thinner (more milk) for Drizzle

Refrigerate for 18 - 24 hours before serving

Keep unused sauce refrigerated for up to 4 - 5 days


Use a salad dressing (such as Miracle Whip) in place of mayonnaise

Use fresh lime juice instead of fresh lemon juice

Use one teaspoon of garlic salt in place of sea salt and garlic powder

I like to post here the best. I think this question will be a first on KP. My big toenail cracked right down to the nail bed. Do I go to a podiatrist or to a nail salon? Thanks.

Question - - how long has it been this way ???

Do you recall ever having trauma or injury to your big toe ???

What is the matrix? Thanks for the response.

The matrix is under the skin at the base of your nail - - it is the only living part of your nail, where the nerves and the blood supply are, and it is the place where new cells are generated that grow your nail...

You need a doctor - - podiatrist - - it needs to be determined weather the split has damaged the matrix.

But make sure it's a GOOD podiatrist - - there ARE some bad ones out there.

Ask questions and feel comfortable with the answers before you let anyone do any procedures.

If the doctor says the split doesn't go down into the matrix, you may be able to have someone at a nail salon put an overlay that would allow the nail to grow out without splitting further down.

Doctors may not offer this option, so you have to know that it's available and tell them that that's what you intend to do

Agreed - - with what ... ??? There are two rather polarized views on this subject...

KP HINT: Responses often don't end up directly beneath the post which is being answered, so it really helps to quote the post being referenced.

METHOD: When answering or commenting on any particular post, INSTEAD of just using the "Quick reply" box at the bottom of each page, click on "Quote Reply" at the bottom of THAT post.

RESULT: An input box opens that automatically contains the quote being referenced. Please only input new text either above OR below the Quote box, as entering it WITHIN the Quote box makes it appear that the quoted user wrote YOUR text.

Since the one copper-to-galvanized-steel connection I can see - in plain view in the bathroom - has shown no change in the 19 years we've been here, I'm guessing it's OK. We have not yet had any reason to drain the heating system. At the start of each heating season, all I do with it - water-wise - is 'bleed' whatever air may have accumulated. Most of the time, there's none.
I dread the day - and the price! - we ever are forced to drain the system. I also dread the thought of ever replacing any of our cast-iron antique radiators. I know where to take them to be blasted clean, but the cost - per section of radiator - is downright scary! If ever we need to drain/replace, I'm certain my husband will opt for new equipment, which I'm against.

You've had good luck and good fortune there for many years - - perhaps there won't be any need for alterations in your lifetime - - I will keep my fingers crossed for you !!!

Great-looking rabbit! I started looking for something similar in crochet, but haven't been able to find anything quite as sleek. I may have to invent my own [I am intrigued by Stuffthebody's seamless designs], or else learn to knit better. Thanks!


Cute rabbits (I like the little ellie too)...

I've made several from the free Sunny Bunny Pattern by Sarah Youde on Ravelry. As a bonus, it comes with patterns for a sweater and a dress, which can be made with your own color and stitch variations. They're precious when finished. I made one for a baby shower and it was the hit of the evening! Good luck to you.

by Sarah Youde

"The pattern includes instructions for a sweater and a dress so you can make a girl or boy bunny - or both!,

"Oh, and don’t forget to add a cute little tail. I used a fork to create a teeny pom pom and then fluffed it up with a teasle brush and sewed in on the rabbit! (I forgot to mention this in the pattern)."

Free pattern available on Ravelry...

Within the concept of bullying, the bully word is often misused and bandied about too freely.

I found a good definition at the National Center Against Bullying website:

Definition of bullying

The definition of bullying is when an individual or a group of people with more power, repeatedly and intentionally cause hurt or harm to another person or group of people who feel helpless to respond. Bullying can continue over time, is often hidden from adults, and will probably continue if no action is taken.

What bullying is not

> single episodes of social rejection or dislike
> single episode acts of nastiness or spite
> random acts of aggression or intimidation
> mutual arguments, disagreements or fights.

[While these] actions can cause great distress, they do not fit the definition of bullying, and they're not examples of bullying unless someone is deliberately and repeatedly doing them.

We have an occasional bottle nose I'm told and, more frequently. dolphins. Not enough here to suit me though! Whales love stopping by frequently. The mansions, wealthy estates, and most of the commercial properties, tourist attractions, boardwalk concessions, etc., are back or close to being completely back. Many entire neighborhoods that were wiped out are still abandoned and not restored. Roads, bridges, utilities are mostly restored. Verizon gave up on restoring their cables underground here because of the expense. The salt water destroyed them. Now we no longer have landlines in our area, just wireless phones that look like landlines but only use house electricity to operate and cell towers to bring in the signals. Our slogan here is "Restore the Shore" but, sadly, many have had to leave because they were not given help they needed to rebuild and stay. Personally, we had a lot of large branches and trees down around us but our house was left intact. Not the place here for me to say anything more about how our so-called governor failed us.

I'm afraid the native restoration speak the same story as Hurricane Katrina and NOLA...
