Diced lemon and onion salad

Reading this recipe, I was wondering how could mixing raw onion with lemon produce an edible salad. The recipe did contain some sugar, but even that was marked as an optional ingredient. I was a little bit curious to find out what would it taste like. After all, the previous recipe I’d made from that book had been fantastic (broad bean salad with cumin dressing – I didn’t take any photos of that).

Unfortunately this salad tasted just like I had imagined it would: completely inedible. I even double-checked the recipe to see if I had missed something, but didn’t find any mistakes.

Diet Coke Trick

Pouring Diet Coke over the corrosion on the battery terminals. The acid eats it away. Worth a try if the car won’t turn over.

The Real Thing works better than the generic store brand. I don’t drink regular Coke and can’t vouch for it. YMMV.

I thought the soba was delicious, but probably not worth the price if not for the fact that this was the oldest restaurant in Japan and they used to serve soba to the royal family.

stgales will blow through anything. In large houses, with the stoverooms on the southside, keeping warm isless difficult. Prob-ably much of thetime a country sit-ting-room is toowarm, rather thantoo cold. The inhab-itants feel obliged tohave a contrast withthe frost outside, andin many farmhousesthe air in the littlesitting-room is keptfairly baked. Theinmates would thinkthemselves seriouslychilly in a coal-firetemperature of sev-enty degrees. A wood fire in a sheet-iron stove sends out a trulyblistering heat if it is attended to ; but if continuous attentionis not given, it fluctuates. It may amount to about the sameas being cooked in an oven one half-hour ; and inside of thenext half-hour the fire goes down till the cold creeps in at thecracks, and you begin to shiver. That reminds you to putsome wood in the stove, and set the cooking process in opera-tion again. The New England winter is felt most in those households wherethe stock of sawed wood is allowed to run low, and the women

I. WINTKR LIFE « -,-, IN NEW ENGLAND folks are obliged to resort to constant appeal to the men to getenough to keep the fires going, or are compelled to saw it them-selves. Take a real country town right through, and there are agood many farmers who do not keep up their wood supply as theyshould, and some of them are short of wood the year around.This state of affairs is called by the more forehanded neighbors shiftlessness. Sometimes there is not only a lack of sawedwood, but the whole woodpile is allowed to get depleted almost tothe last stick. The farmer is then obliged to resort to the woodsfor a new supply ; and the housewife has to burn green wood,which is her especial detestation. She can only make the bestof it ; and that best is to always keep a supply of green sticksunder the stove or in the o\en drying, while they await theirturn to become a part of the fire. The drying wood gives theroom a peculiar and not unpleasant odor. Winter woik is not so arduous or long continued a
