The kitchen sink's gone slow again. We're sparing of the garbage disposal but it's a long drain with multiple bends (all but one are 45s, at least) and an air admittance valve instead of the usual vent. Running a dishwasher doesn't help and it's five years or more since the last repair. Hoping to coax it past the first of the year and if simple fixes (it's got a rubber slip fitting near the connection to the main stack) don't help, I'll get a plumber.
In the meantime, there were mushrooms left that I didn't fix for Christmas. It was about time to use them up, so I did: I'm feasting on bacon, eggs and mushrooms, with coffee and toast. On the toast, an occasional treat: orange marmalade! I like the sweeter versions -- yes, the "...with a name like...." brand and I picked up a loaf of white bread. (Should have looked for something better than "sandwich bread," which has become too much like cake to suit me; but oh well, it toasts okay.) Holiday indulgence!
