-I too often start a load of laundry and forget about it. I had to list that as one of my 3 bad habits on a tag ... so sad.
-my other laundry ta bu is having laundry baskets full of clean clothes sitting around waiting to be folded ... getting all wrinkly ... even more sad.
The wonderful rods Mr. Mark installed have helped tremendously!
Picture from House to Home
Anyway, I'm always looking for ways to improve my "Never Ending Story" situation. Here are some great Laundry Tips from Martha Stewart Living.
I hope some of this information will be helpful to you. I learned something new and that's always good...or as Martha would say a"good thing".

2 cups chopped round red potato (2 medium)
1 cup coarsely chopped carrot (2 medium)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion (1 medium)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped celery (1 medium)
1 4-oz. can (drained weight) sliced mushrooms, drained
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. dried thyme, crushed
1. In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker, combine potato, carrot, onion, celery, mushrooms, garlic, thyme, sage, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle tapioca over the mixture. Top with chicken thighs. Pour broth over all.
2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3-1/2 hours.
3. Remove chicken from slow cooker. When cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones and coarsely chop; discard bones. Return meat to slow cooker along with peas and cream cheese. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Stir well; serve with Cheesy Biscuits. Makes 6 servings.
Cheesy Biscuits:Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine 1-2/3 cups packaged biscuit mix and 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (2 ounces). Stir in 1/2 cup milk. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead 10 times. Pat into a 1/2-inch-thick circle. Cut with a floured 3-inch biscuit cutter. Reroll scraps as needed. Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

- 12 large eggs
- 1/2 cup half-and-half
- 1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 small yellow onion, halved lengthwise and cut into thin wedges
- 6 ounces baby spinach leaves, coarsely chopped (about 4 cups firmly packed)
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes, stemmed and halved
- 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
- 1/2 cup (about 3 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
In a 12-inch ovenproof skillet, preferably nonstick, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Swirl to coat the pan, add the onion, and sauté, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens, about 2 minutes.
Add the spinach a handful at a time, and sauté just until wilted and bright green, about 3 minutes. As soon as the spinach is wilted, add the tomatoes and oregano and sauté, stirring constantly, until the tomatoes are heated through, about 1 minute.
Add the egg mixture to the pan, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook, without stirring, until the frittata is set on the bottom and around the edges, about 4 minutes. While the frittata is cooking, simultaneously lift one edge of the frittata with a spatula and tilt the pan a little so the uncooked egg flows under the set edge. Repeat this at regular intervals around the edge of the frittata.
When the eggs are mostly cooked, scatter the feta cheese over the top and place the frittata under the broiler. Broil until the top is golden brown and the eggs are set but still moist, about 3 minutes.
