1. Is it ok for a senior to line up her medications on a restaurant table & take them on the spot?

Since it's important that she take her meds on time, I see no reason why she should not even in a public restaurant--although I would not line them up (I just put them in a little pill container before I leave home, then I dump them in my hand under the table and toss them all in my mouth and drink them down with some water--but I know some people can only handle swallow one pill at a time). It would be better she do it her way then not take all of her pills. When the s-i-l gets older and finds he needs to take medication, he will suddenly change his mind.

2. Is it rude if I brush my teeth and spit it out on a plate/napkin while I'm at a restaurant table?

It is not rude, it's just not attractive. It would be like having someone apply deodorant in public or popping their pimples. Anyways, anything that is done in the bathroom should be kept in the bathroom. No questions asked!!!

3. Have you ever had to share a restaurant table with a stranger?

that's messed top up. what style of fool to you are able to desire to be to think of that the place human beings, mutually with your self, consume food is a suitable area to alter a diaper. I even have never in my opinion seen this, yet one time, my female chum and that i've got been at a astonishing Italian eating place, and we had this couple are available in with their a million 3 hundred and sixty 5 days previous youngster and it cried by using our finished meal. of direction, it ruined our dinner mutually. once you are gonna bypass out to a respectable place to consume, hire a babysitter!

4. When temporarily leaving a restaurant table, should you place your napkin on the seat or on the table?

I leave them on the seat. Once I leave it on the table, that means I am finished

5. How do you sterilize a restaurant table?

Clean them first, then disinfect. You can clean them with a wet, soapy rag. This removes food particles and grease and other dirt.To disinfect (get all the germy things you can not see), wipe again with a weak bleach solution --one tablespoon per gallon of water. Or use a commercial disinfectant--there are lots available. Some smell better than bleach and also wo not leave ugly spots on black pants you spill it

6. URGENT how do i run a restaurant? Table plan, hosting?at would you like to ask?

i am not sure what you are asking i am not sure you taking reservations? if yes then no how mant tables you are going to have and take reservations and fill up the tables with a name amount of people and time they are coming

7. When temporarily leaving a restaurant table, should you place your napkin on the seat or on the table?

You place it on your seat or on the back of your chair

8. When temporarily leaving a restaurant table, should you place your napkin on the seat or on the table?

leave it on the seat and very good question

9. URGENT how do i run a restaurant? Table plan, hosting?

Ca not tell by the info you gave us but I will try... When an event is going on it probably means there is a set menu for it. Also people do not probably pay for drinks as well... if they do they go to the bar and pay for it. You said it was an event so they should have seats assigned to them, but if they do not try seating "their own people" together. The only job you have is to make sure you greet the guests with a smile and seat them.... that's all!!! I can tell by your description you have not spoken to any people that are going to be working in that event, so when you get there just ask other employees how to do it cause they will be doing the same job as you will.

Let's Go Out ForIndian
Whether your favourite Indian restaurant resembles the Taj Majal or a trendy food truck, you're sure to encounter some tempting staples of the Indian table.Here's how to make the most of your meal while minimising extras that will tack on hidden SmartPoints values. Find out more about SmartPoints.While Indian food can be calorie-intensive, it's not always necessary to have afull-course meal for an authentic taste. Rather than sit down for a monstrous meal, incorporate Indian flavours into your day with a smaller takeaway from a curry house that specialises in one item, like an order of tandoori, vegetariandosa or kadhi, a spicy dish with thick chickpea gravy.Naan, the most popular bread in Indian restaurants, can easily measure 10 inches across and comes brushed with ghee (clarified butter) and garlic. Having one is like eating an entire personal pizza crust! Save on SmartPoints and try roti instead. Unlike naan bread, roti (also known as chapati) is unleavened and is available in white or whole grain. Made in a frying pan, it closely resembles a wholewheat tortilla.RELATED: What to eat on WW Freestyle if you freaking love carbs The "pakora," "samosa" and "bhaji" families of small bites all indicate deep-frying. Be really careful about portions here if you're looking to cut back SmartPoints values. Instead, request an appetiser of flavoursome lentil soup.The flavour of grilling with the moist succulence of baking, tandoori dishes are that elusive combination of healthy and flavoursome. Meats are traditionally marinated in spices and yoghurt for up to 24 hours, delivering amazing flavour and moistness. Whether you choose chicken, fish or meat, this curry recipe represents one of the best methods of cooking and should be top of your list.The Indian restaurant table is a build-your-own feast, set with chutneys as key condiments, usually one red and one green. If you can handle the spice, the green chutney is the best choice. Made with mint, coriander and spicy chillies, this herbal and fiery condiment brings big flavour. That sweet red chutney, on the other hand, is loaded with fruit sugars from tamarind, dates or mango, meaning it's higher in SmartPoints.As with Thai and Chinese cuisine, it's perfectly acceptable to request your dish be made mild, medium, or spicy. The calories andSmartPointsvalues will be the same, but most people tend to eat less of a mouth-searing dish.RECIPE: Spicy dhal soup with butternut squash Raita is a cooling condiment of yoghurt, cucumber, and coriander flavoured with cumin and other spices. While the yoghurt is generally of the whole-milk variety, with no additional calories, a serving of raita is generally low in SmartPoints.To quell the burning from a hot spice, a spoonful is a much better solution than chowing on rice and bread. Try this mushroom and spinach curry with raita at home."Masala" is your friend, a word that denotes a rich mix of Indian spices. Occasionally, however, you'll encounter some other "m" words in place of, or alongside, masala. "Makhami" refers to a rich sauce oozing with ghee and heavy cream. "Malai", popular in the dish Malai prawns, among others, refers to rich, clotted cream with up to 55 percent butterfat.Most Indian restaurants have a large selection of vegetarian meals. However, there are many fatty vegetarian dishes where you still need to watch portions. For instance, malai kofta are vegetarian dumplings swimming in heavy cream. And "paneer" indicates firm cheese, which is almost always fried.

Our Resin Table Tops, which offer superior durability, are affordable for any budgetHow to Promote your Hotel Restaurant and Increase Your SalesHow many people would think about booking a table for lunch or dinner at a hotel restaurant when they are not staying at the hotel? Not very many. This is precisely what is at stake for hotel restaurants looking to fill their tables. Hotel restaurants are first and foremost restaurants. They offer the same service as their autonomous counterparts: a kitchen, food, a seating room, and a staff. We talked to experts, hotel managers, and restaurant supervisors for hotel groups to better understand the issues of the trade and the measures taken to respond to them. Everyone in the business is of one mind : hotel restaurants operate at a far lower rate than their seating capacity At first glance, it's easy to think that hotel restaurants have a head start over other restaurants-they come in with a ready clientele staying right above. Research has shown that hotels with 63% of their rooms booked will be able to fill of the restaurant's tables with those very same customers. An occupancy rate of 30% guaranteed by hotel guests does not sound so bad. Save for the fact that of the restaurant remains to be filled. To get there, hotel restaurants will have to target non-guest customers. This is where things get tricky: having lunch or dinner inside a hotel is not yet part of the customs for the general population. Most people do not think about it because they do not see the restaurant independently from the hotel. It proves even more complicated for hotel restaurants to bring in outside customers as they are usually not visible as restaurants, but as "a part" of a hotel. A lack of identity separate from the hotel puts hotel restaurants at a disadvantage A restaurant with the same name as the hotel that houses it exists only as a "feature" of that hotel. This explains why potential customers are not even aware of hotel restaurants in themselves, and do not think about them when looking for places to eat. But this initial observation is not a death sentence, and many hotel restaurants across the Atlantic manage to reach very satisfying occupancy rates while keeping the name of the hotel and adding unique epithets for the restaurant. This is the case for Standard Grill, the Standard Hotel's restaurant, which managed to take advantage of the hotel's reputation to open its doors to customers from other horizons. Others go even further and turn the hotel's restaurant into a brand in itself. Creating and tapping into a strong brand identity can mean a bright growth potential for hotel restaurants Some hotels have pushed the strategy to the point where they turned their restaurant into real profit centers. The Barrire Group, responsible for the Fouquet's brand, now welcomes on a daily basis diners eager to eat at Fouquet's, not at "the Barrire Hotel's restaurant." "The Fouquet's brand was created with the goal of reinforcing our restaurants' image to attract more customers outside of hotel guests," Pierre-Louis Renou, manager of the Cannes establishments, tells us. The group succeeded in building such a strong restaurant brand that people have stopped associating it with the parent hotels. Other hotels manage to negotiate exclusive deals to house atypical or in-demand restaurants still rare on the market. In New York, the Parker is now home to the sole location of the Burger Joint brand. The "burger joint" is located behind a curtain in the main hall of the hotel, and boasts a unique decor (with customers' testimonials on the wall), its own website, and its own social media accounts. The concept is showcased both in situ and online, and it works: expect an average waiting time of one hour every day to taste a burger! Hotel restaurants have their own unique features According to the hotel they are in, their location, their product line, some restaurants have a more urgent need to bring in outside customers than others. Olivier Clerc, Restaurant Operations Director for the Grape Hospitality group, tells us that hotels close to business centers (where companies lack an office cafeteria) host many business lunches, but struggle more with weekend shifts. Hotels located near offices with cafeterias do not often succeed in attracting individuals for the lunch shift, but manage to get more satisfying turnover rates in the evening with hotel guests. For others, we can also highlight how season patterns impact hotel restaurants. Anthony Torkington, former general manager at the Saint James Hotel in Bouliac, tells us that the Saint James's restaurant in Bouliac attracts enough customers in the winter to generate a satisfying revenue on lunches. In the summer however, evenings work better thanks to the summer specials they developed, the longer days, and an outdoor terrace with a panoramic view of Bordeaux. We spoke to specialists in order to identify the best initiatives for hotel restaurants to attract customers in the right areas. Giving the restaurant a proper identity is the first step in making sure it is viable To attract customers who are not hotel guests, a hotel restaurant is already ahead if it has a proper identity-a name, distinct from the hotel, a logo, a chef, a website. The restaurant has to be visible physically and online as a separate entity in and of itself. That was Grape Hospitality's wager with Happy Dock, the restaurant housed by the Mercure Hotel in Le Havre. The place was refurbished, the menu redesigned by Sophie Menut, the chef at the helm of the kitchen. Today, the restaurant has its own website, and appears as a restaurant in its own right: The Hoxton Grill in London's Hoxton Hotel preserved the already famous Hoxton brand, and followed the model of the Standard in New York: Once its proper identity established, the restaurant has to be promoted and to that end use the right cost-effective online marketing tools. Communicating not as a hotel feature but as a restaurant strengthens the establishment's online presence 80% of people look up restaurants online. They have to be able to see, right next to independent restaurants, suggestions of hotel restaurants welcoming customers who are not guests at the hotel. To that end, restaurants have to be listed online independently from their hotel. Good organic SEO, a smart online communications strategy, a website, and independent Facebook and Instagram accounts are necessary to boost the restaurant's visibility. This is what the Hoxton Grill in London's Hoxton Hotel did on Instagram: A good social media strategy is a way to reach more potential customers, but we also recommend focusing on having strong local roots to widen turnover rates. Developing strong local roots is a way to promote the restaurant to those most likely to become loyal customers Consumers trust products as long as they know where they come from. Working with local growers and producers means getting closer to customers. The Saint James in Bouliac picked that method for the dishes on its menu, but it also went further. The Saint James in Bouliac created the "Saint James Market." Four times a year, on a Sunday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., the hotel invites local growers (who supply the restaurant's kitchen) to sell their products to the public. About 1100 people come every time. The goal of the seasonal market is, as Anthony Torkington relates, is to attract and entice Bordeaux residents to come have lunch or dinner in hotel restaurants: "We highlighted this type of events to promote the establishments and get people talking about them in a different light." Developing strong local roots can also take the form of astute diversification to highlight specific services and improve the restaurant's renown. Diversifying the smart way: by capitalizing on their strengths and proximity to hotels, hotel restaurants have the potential to become drop-in "third places" Introducing new activities associated with the hotel's restaurant is a way to attract a new customer base Diversification is a way for hotel restaurants to take advantage of their strengths, namely how close they are to a hotel and all of its amenities. Indeed, as Olivier Clerc points out, "We have to inject life into hotel restaurants, these days we live in a world where everything is modernized, and we have an obligation to go out and get customers from outside of the hotel." By capitalizing on these assets, hotel restaurants can organize special events and bring in new people inside their walls. Grape Hospitality's restaurants took some interesting initiatives in that regard. Once a month, the Mercure Hotel in Roissy sets up an exhibition by volunteer artists, with a gallery opening to boot, which attracts new people to the hotel, and is also a chance to sell beverages and various meats and cheeses, either at the bar or in the hotel. By taking advantage of the existing hotel structures, the restaurant can develop a range of products aimed at customers outside of the hotel Hotels usually serve breakfasts which more or less resemble what a brunch would look like (eggs, cheese, charcuterie etc.). Starting with the advantages they already had, the Amour Hotel and the Marriott Champs lyses developed a brunch offer to attract customers outside the hotel. One way to promote their new diversified offer was to collaborate with influencers. Two of them, pia_mbd and callmevoyou were invited to try the brunch and share their experience on their social media accounts. Their audience, for the most part young, urban, and for whom brunch is a fact of life, was able to discover the hotel restaurant's new offer. One of the oldest English traditions is the afternoon tea, and it is more than renowned in London: in some of the most beautiful hotels such as the Ritz London, one has to wait several months for a seat a one of its tables set for tea. The tradition has since crossed the pond and hotels in Paris seized the opportunity to fill their salons and generate new avenues for revenue. Indeed, hotels like the Shangri La or the Westminster Hotel have developed a "Tea Time" service catering to a younger audience, and resorted to influencers to promote it. Another example of smart diversification: Olivier Thomas, director of the Blagnac Pullman near Toulouse, saw that the restaurant's lunch revenue was seriously impeded by the proximity of a number of office cafeterias. The simple lunch menu was not enough to attract the surrounding business crowd. Seeing this, Olivier Thomas developed a special menu with real added value and a competitive edge: "packages," or lunch formulas to which he added a pass granting access to the pool, a massage, or a sports class within the hotel. Going beyond with a strong concept grants hotel restaurants a new appeal Still at Grape Hospitality, the Mercure in Sophia Antipolis took in a restaurant with quite a strong concept: "In the Dark. Dinner is served in pitch-black darkness by nonseeing people. The experience goes beyond the simple meal; senses are thrown. Deprived from their sight, customers are invited to re-evaluate their perception of taste. This buzzworthy initiative was a way to promote both the hotel and the restaurant, and to bring in a new audience. The success was such that the collaboration was renewed. We would like to kindly thank the hotel restaurant professionals who took the time to answer our questions: Pierre-Louis Renou, Area General Manager for the Barrire Group in Cannes. He manages three hotels: the Majestic Cannes, the Gray d'Albion Cannes, and the Carl Gustaf St Barth. Anthony Torkington, former General Manager at the Saint James in Bouliac. He was just named new General Director of Relais & Chteaux. Olivier Clerc, Director of Restaurant Operations at Grape Hospitality. Launched in 2017, Grape Hospitality is the owner, operator, and manager of 85 hotels in 8 European countries, which represents over 9000 rooms operated under a franchise contract.
Let's Go Out ForIndian
Enjoying this exotic cuisine doesn't have to mean a blow-out. Try these strategies to make healthy choices.Whether your Indian restaurant resembles the Taj Majal or serves its food out of the window of a food truck, you're sure to encounter some tempting staples of the Indian table. Here's how to make the most of your meal while minimizing extras that will tack on hidden calories.While Indian food can be calorie-intensive, it's not always necessary to do the full-course meal for an authentic taste.

Unlike naan bread, roti is unleavened and is available in white or whole-grain. A typical 6-inch round has a value of about 3. Chapati is similar to roti in character and calories, also with a value of 3. Made on a skillet, it closely resembles a whole-wheat tortilla.Indian restaurant appetizers are made for quick service, and therefore mostly flash-fried, with few redeeming dishes in the bunch when it comes to nutrition. The "pakora," "samosa" and "bhaji" families of small bites all indicate deep-frying. "You need to be really careful about portions here if you're looking to cut back calories. About the best you might do to avoid these is to request a cup of lentil soup," says Sheth.The flavor of grilling with the moist succulence of baking, tandoori dishes are that elusive combination of flavorful and healthful.

That sweet red chutney, on the other hand, is loaded with fruit sugars from tamarind, dates or mango, meaning you'll pick up 1 value for each tablespoon. "In the worst instances, you might be getting nothing more than sugar and red dye," warns Sheth.As with Thai and Chinese cuisine, it's perfectly acceptable to request your dish be made mild, medium or spicy. The calories and values will be the same, but most people tend to eat less of a mouth-searing dish.Similar to Greek tzatziki, raita is a cooling condiment of yogurt, cucumber and cilantro flavored with cumin, coriander and other spices. While the yogurt is generally of the whole-milk variety, with no additional calories, you'll find a 1/2 cup of raita has a value of just 2. To quell the burning from a hot spice, a spoonful is a much better solution than chowing on rice and bread. If you can order a nonfat variety, better still."Masala" is your friend, a word that denotes a rich mix of Indian spices.

Ask for suggestions that have tomato- or broth-based sauces.
Is It Okay to Let Small Kids Crawl Around Under a Restaurant Table?
No. It is dangerous for the children and the servers, disruptive to other diners and plainly rude. Do you think other people who pay money, sometimes quite a bit should be subjected to your bored or unruly children? Do you think servers who are often carrying heavy trays should have to worry about small children crawling about?1. My baby is learning to crawl and explore. She keeps falling over and hitting her head. Can this hurt her?she will be fine! thin of the amount of babies that learn to walk and crawl they ALL hit their heads! babies are tougher than you think! mine have hit their heads plenty of times learning to crawl and walk and are just fine! my youngest is learning to crawl also and she has hit her head a few times! mum to 3.5yrold, 2.5yrold & 6 month old!2. How do I get my turtles to crawl into my hands?you dont? lolz. well why dont you put the food further up your hand or something? whhy would you want them in your hand newayz? Turtles smell3. should i keep my air conditioner on all the time so bugs dont crawl in?it's what i do, and i rarely ever see bugs in my room4. Where can i find a private place to buy, to see baby sea turtles hatch and crawl to the ocean?I do not think you can buy anyplace like that, but if you look hard enough around the internet you could probably find a program that helps volunteer with making sure the babies make it safely to the water5. how to entertain a 1 1/2 yr old that can't walk/crawl?Play song games like patty cake. Set her in the corner of the sofa propped up and play tickle monster, or this little piggy, things like that. My son loves that. You could also get any type of material that feels funny and rub it in her hand. A feather, anything textured, stuff like that. I was watching a 15 year old that could not do any of that either, and she loved to feel things with texture on them. We sang a lot, and played peekaboo. It's great that you are trying hard with her. It's so sad when they can not do things for themselves.6. my baby want crawl but if u hold his hand he will walk Is that ok he is 6 mths old?Do not worry, my son is 4 months and does the same. He's been using a walker since 2 1/2 months...yes, he's a big baby. His feet could reach the floor at two months. Anyway, I figure some babies actually learn to walk before they learn to crawl. Encourage your child's growth and try not to put limitations on their development, you will be amazed at what they can do. My son has spoken his first word, repeated it and knows what it means. God Bless!.7. Poll; Have you ever tried the slow,stealth,commando crawl to get out of the office 15 minutes early?Getting through the elevators was the tough part.......(doors kept closing on me....must have sensed my momentary panic....) I took your advice on camouflage to the next level. I used discarded fax forms, computer cables, post-it notes, bits of broken furniture, pieces of inspirational posters, and old coffee cups to construct a "ghillie suit". I am now perfectly disguised as a heap of random office clutter, thus rendering myself effectively invisible in the office environment. My next mission: Infiltrate human resources and dope their coffee with Valium.......8. My one year old boy does not walk or crawl yet?Hi I would not worry at all, children normally get referred to see a specialist if they are not walking by 18 months, most babies start walking between 12 and 15 months. If he army crawls, rolls around etc he is mobile, some babies bum shuffle, some roll some do not do any and just start walking. Also if he was an early baby it is common to be slightly behind over children Every child is different they do not read the books, they will develop at their own time and pace If you are very worried talk to your health visitor or GP they know best. At his 9-12 month check up if their was an issues they would have told you so! Do not worry so much, some babies/toddlers are slower in mobility and faster in speech. Hope this puts your mind at rest :)

The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid
Burns UnitThe only downside of my mother's working was that it put a little pressure on her with regard to running the home and particularly with regard to dinner, which frankly was not her strong suit anyway. My mother always ran late and was dangerously forgetful into the bargain. You soon learned to stand aside about ten to six every evening, for it was then that she would fly in the back door, throw something in the oven, and disappear into some other quarter of the house to embark on the thousand other household tasks that greeted her each evening. In consequence she nearly always forgot about dinner until a point slightly beyond way too late. As a rule you knew it was time to eat when you could hear baked potatoes exploding in the oven. We didn't call it the kitchen in our house. We called it the Burns Unit. "It's a bit burned," my mother would say apologetically at every meal, presenting you with a piece of meat that looked like something - a much-loved pet perhaps - salvaged from a tragic house fire. "But I think I scraped off most of the burned part," she would add, overlooking that this included every bit of it that had once been flesh. Happily, all this suited my father. His palate only responded to two tastes - burnt and ice cream - so everything suited him so long as it was sufficiently dark and not too startlingly flavorful. Theirs truly was a marriage made in heaven for no one could burn food like my mother or eat it like my dad. As part of her job, my mother bought stacks of housekeeping magazines - House Beautiful, House and Garden, Better Homes and Gardens - and I read these with a curious avidity, partly because they were always lying around and in our house all idle moments were spent reading something, and partly because they depicted lives so absorbingly at variance with our own. The housewives in my mother's magazines were so collected, so organized, so calmly on top of things, and their food was perfect - their lives were perfect. They dressed up to take their food out of the oven! There were no black circles on the ceiling above their stoves, no mutating goo climbing over the sides of their forgotten saucepans. Children didn't have to be ordered to stand back every time they opened their oven doors. And their foods - baked Alaska, lobster Newburg, chicken cacciatore - why, these were dishes we didn't even dream of, much less encounter, in Iowa. Like most people in Iowa in the 1950s, we were more cautious eaters in our house.* On the rare occasions when we were presented with food with which we were not comfortable or familiar - on planes or trains or when invited to a meal cooked by someone who was not herself from Iowa - we tended to tilt it up carefully with a knife and examine it from every angle as if it determining whether it might need to be defused. Once on a trip to San Francisco my father was taken by friends to a Chinese restaurant and he described it to us afterwards in the somber tones of someone recounting a near-death experience. "And they eat it with sticks, you know," he added knowledgeably."Goodness!" said my mother."I would rather have gas gangrene than go through that again," my father added grimly.In our house we didn't eat: • pasta, rice, cream cheese, sour cream, garlic, mayonnaise, onions, corned beef, pastrami, salami, or foreign food of any type, except French toast; • bread that wasn't white and at least 65 percent air; • spices other than salt, pepper and maple syrup; • fish that was any shape other than rectangular and not coated in bright orange breadcrumbs, and then only on Fridays and only when my mother remembered it was Friday, which in fact was not often; • seafood of any type but especially seafood that looked like large insects; • soups not blessed by Campbell's and only a very few of those; • anything with dubious regional names like "pone," or "gumbo" or foods that had at any time been an esteemed staple of slaves or peasants. All other foods of all types - curries, enchiladas, tofu, bagels, sushi, couscous, yogurt, kale, rocket, Parma ham, any cheese that was not a vivid bright yellow and shiny enough to see your reflection in - had either not yet been invented or was yet unknown to us. We really were radiantly unsophisticated. I remember being surprised to learn at quite an advanced age that a shrimp cocktail was not, as I had always imagined, a pre-dinner alcoholic drink with a shrimp in it. All our meals consisted of leftovers. My mother had a seemingly inexhaustible supply of foods that had already been to the table, sometimes many times. Apart from a few perishable dairy products, everything in the fridge was older than I was, sometimes by many years. (Her oldest food possession of all, it more or less goes without saying, was a fruitcake that was kept in a metal tin and dated from the colonial period.) I can only assume that my mother did all of her cooking in the 1940s so that she could spend the rest of her life surprising herself with what she could find under cover at the back of the fridge. I never knew her to reject a food. The rule of thumb seemed to be that if you opened the lid and the stuff inside didn't make you actually recoil and take at least one staggered step backwards, it was deemed OK to eat. Both of my parents had grown up in the Great Depression and neither of them ever threw anything away if they could possibly avoid it. My mother routinely washed and dried paper plates, and smoothed out for reuse spare aluminum foil. If you left a pea on your plate, it became part of future meal. All our sugar came in little packets spirited out of restaurants in deep coat pockets, as did our jams, jellies, crackers (oyster and saltine), tartar sauces, some of our ketchup and butter, all of our napkins, and a very occasional ashtray; anything that came with a restaurant table really. One of the happiest moments in my parents' life was when maple syrup started to be served in small disposable packets and they could add those to the household hoard. *In fact like most other people in America. It is perhaps worth noting that the leading American food writer of the age, Duncan Hines, author of the hugely successful Adventures in Eating, declared with pride that he never ate food with French names if he could possibly help it. Hines's other boast was that he did not venture out of America until he was seventy years old, when he made a trip to Europe. He disliked nearly everything he found there, especially the food.

How To Build A Twin Platform BedWe have a guest that will be staying the night, a very messy guest room, and a twin mattress ... on the floor. I decided to get busy and Build A Twin Platform Bed with the thought that one of our kids could use it when they are off at college, renting a room off campus. Eventually, I would like to have a queen size bed in the guest room but this makes sense for now! This twin platform bed was pretty simple and inexpensive to build. It needed to be easy to disassemble so it could be hauled around easily and it needed to be inexpensive because ... this is not meant to be a family heirloom. Nope! It has a purpose to serve on a budget! This post contains affiliate links. When you purchase through an affiliate link, we receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. Disclosure. Our twin size mattress dimensions are 37-1/2 x 73-1/2 x 11 and I built this bed to fit those dimensions. Adjust your cuts to accommodate your mattress size. Note: My cuts are 2-1/2 shorter than our mattress size. This is because the mattress partially sits on top of the 4 x 4 legs. if you choose not to use casters, adjust the cut of the legs. Our twin mattress has a hard bottom and needed less slats than our Naturepedic mattress did. How To Assemble The Twin Platform Bed This bed is actually pretty simple to build! Make your cuts, according to your mattress size, and sand each piece with 120 grit sand paper. With the Kreg Jig, drill three pocket holes in each end of your headboard and footboard panel. Pay attention to what side of the board you want to be visible and make the pocket holes on the opposite side. Next, attach the headboard and footboard panels to the legs with 2-1/2 pocket hole screws. I placed a 1 x 4 under each end of the panel so the panel would sit back a bit from the 4 x 4 leg instead of being flush. The top of the panel and the top of the legs are flush. The next picture will show what I mean! The headboard and footboard assembled. Pretty basic, right? Then, attach the bed rail hooks on each 4 x 4 leg. I attached mine 2-1/2 from the top and as close to the inside edge that I could, in order to leave room for the side rail. Oh my goodness! These are non-mortise bed rail hooks! I struggled with the mortise bed rail hooks I used on our King Size Farmhouse Bed so I was pretty stoked to find these bed rail hooks! Now it was time to attach the bed slat supports. To do this, I laid the 2 x 4 on the inside of the 2 x 10 side rail and placed my 2 x 2 on top so I would know where to attach the 2 x 4. We want the mattress to sit right on top of this platform bed. I used Kreg Clamps and 2-1/2 Deck Plus Screws to attach the bed slat supports. This part was a bit tricky. The bed rail hooks needed to be lined up just right so the bed rail would sit flush with the headboard and footboard. I laid the footboard and headboard on the ground with the hooks attached. Then, I had my husband hold the side rails up against it, where I wanted it to be, and marked the screw holes. I am glad I did it this way because the hooks sit back a bit on the bed rail in order to sit flush. I would not have known that if I had only measured the correct height. The bed rails were pretty easy to attach and it was all flush ... enough! I used Homemade Stain for my Twin Bed. After the bed was stained, I took it apart, laid the pieces on sawhorses, and finished each piece with a coat of wax. I then attached a caster wheel to each leg. After the wax was dry, I took the bed pieces into the guest room and reassembled it. This is where you would measure the inside dimension of your bed so you can cut your bed slats the proper width. I placed the bed slats and side rail blocks where they needed to go. Next, I attached each block to the side rail support by pre-drilling a hole and then used one self-sinking screw in each block. This was a bit tedious as I used my Kreg Clamp on each block to keep it from moving. We are happy with this simple Twin Platform Bed! It was easy and inexpensive to build and should be a good thing to have around when the kids say goodbye to dorm life and rent a room, when they are off at college. Of course, we are also quite happy that our guest will not have to sleep on a mattress, on the floor. How To Make Wood Stain With Common Household Products Fun DIY House Projects You Can Do Too!
Leesa's Sapira Mattress Has Springs but still Comes in a Box
Mattress-in-a-box companies, from Tuft & Needle to Casper, ship foam and latex mattresses to your door for under $900 for a queen size. Most offer a single type, with dimensions being the only thing you can choose from. Leesa is a member of that club, but today it's branching but with a new brand called Sapira. It's supposed to offer a more luxurious mattress that is a hybrid of springs and foam.The queen costs $1,475, $585 more than the 10-inch-thick, all-foam Leesa. It's an inch thicker, too, with a 1.5-inch top layer of high-density foam; a 1.5-inch layer of memory foam; and steel pocket springs in between two, 1-inch layers of stabilizing foam. Pocket springs are encased in their own cloth pouch. With traditional innerspring mattresses, the coils are tied together, so when you lie down, your weight gets transferred across the bed. That means that, in general, you'll be less likely to feel your partner tossing and turning with the pocket spring variety.Related:Nightingale smart home sleep system masks both indoor and outdoor noisesI tried the Sapira out for a couple of nights, and I found this to be very true. Pushing down on one side of the bed left the other side unaffected. I pressed the mattress down about six inches away from my sleeping cat, and he didn't stir.The overall experience of getting the Sapira is pretty similar to the Leesa one. It arrives at your door all boxed up and compressed, and you slice through a few layers of plastic to let it plump up. You'll get 100 days to try out the mattress, and the company will pick it up if you decide not to keep it within that time frame.The Sapira is definitely a dense mattress. The full-size mattress weighs in at 98 pounds, according to the shipping label. Even though it's only an added inch, the Sapira seems thicker than the Leesa. The top layer of foam is certainly soft, but overall the mattress feels pretty firm.Other brands like Helix and Luma have been offering these "hybrid" foam and spring mattresses for a while, and by offering it as a separate, more luxury-minded brand, Leesa can offer another option beyond its single-type-of-firmness mattress.
My Minimalist Wardrobe
Minimalism is very important to me, and not just because of the simplicity of it all. It has helped me distance myself from the world of social conformity, build better relationships, and lessen my addiction to social media. I spend more time getting my work done and less time worrying about whether or not I've got my hands on this season's mom jeans. For those of you who are not really sure what minimalism is beyond owning less things, let me explain. Minimalism goes far past "Less is more." It's a way of limiting yourself to the things that actually provide use, are needed, and improve your life. By owning only what we need, we are abandoning the consumerism our society has adopted and putting that energy toward the things that truly matter. Our family, friends, career, education, and goals become more important than the stuff we've gathered over the years. To cleanse a space is to cleanse a mind.I desire to keep my space simple and clean, yet I want it to be filled with art and nice clothing. I am not a fan of the "plain white button down as a daily outfit" look. I want some variety, but with a limitation on the amount. Here is how I do it.When I began, I easily had 200 pieces of clothing. When I say "pieces of clothing," I include shirts, pants, coats, dresses, scarves, shoes, and bags or purses. One day when I was hanging up clothes, my closet made a very unfriendly creaking sound, and as soon as I turned to investigate, the entire rack was coming off the wall. It was time to let go.As I started getting rid of things, I realized how little I actually wore any of the clothes I owned. I would rotate the same ten tops and three jeans and I only wore one pair of shoes among the eleven pairs I owned. And on top of the massive amount of clothing in my closet, I had a 6-drawer dresser each full of the clothes I never wore. I owned at least five bags, but I could not give you the actual amount because I only ever carried one and the rest meant nothing to me.I follow the general rule that if it does not provide meaning or use in my life, get rid of it. I've been able to follow this… mostly. I still have a hard time getting rid of clothing I do not even want if it still has some use left. I also feel the overwhelming urge to trash everything until I only own two shirts, one pair of pants, and a pair of shoes. Unfortunately, this is not realistic for someone who enjoys a variety and would not want to be caught dead wearing the same thing two days in a row. So, I've gone down to the absolute basics for my own personal style. The climate in my area gets both very hot and very cold, so I have to have a decent amount of clothes for each season. Many days, it starts off cold in the morning and is hot by midday, so I must have clothing that's good for layering. I decided that I had to have at least one outfit for interviews and professional occasions as well as one dress for formal family events. For the most part, deciding what I needed was easy. But the most difficult decisions lied with choosing which items to keep and which to toss out. Every once in a while I make a log of all the clothing I own, track the newest additions as well as the donations, and make sure I am limiting myself to a decent amount of clothing, not going overboard in either direction. Here's what my minimalist closet looks like:Tops: Two flannel shirts, three sweaters, one long-sleeve top, three t-shirts, one blouse, and one gray tank top. Total=11 items.Bottoms: one pair of high-rise jeans, one pair low-rise, one pair of leggings. Total=3 items. Coats: One petticoat, one denim jacket, one blazer, one raincoat, two summer jackets, one work-out jacket. Total=7 items.Shoes: One pair of work shoes, one pair oxfords, two pairs of sneakers, one pair of sandals, one pair of boots. Total=6 items.Dresses: One t-shirt dress, one formal dress, one summer dress. Total=3 items. Accessories: 3 winter scarves, one purse, one book bag. Total=5 items.Overall closet total=35 items.This closet suits me well a good 98% of the time. I find myself occasionally worried about what to wear because I do allow myself to have more options than I probably should. But like I said, I am young! I like options! I like colors! It's okay to be a minimalist and not want stark white pressed shirts only! Color is good. Color is happy. Options are okay.And that's my minimalist wardrobe! My journey began in the beginning of February 2017 and this is where I've gotten in the last year. Much of my inspiration has drawn from the one and only duo The Minimalists.
