Dianne in Wisconsin wanted to know about cooking pumpkin. My neighbor, Mrs. Gay, a farm wife who passed away many years ago told me to cut the pumpkin in half, clean out the seeds In a pan an inch r so deep, add about 1/2 inch water.

Place Pumpkin cut side down and bake at 350 degrees until soft. It will start to sink in. Cool somewhat but I never let it get completely cold. Store in plastic cups or in doubled plastic bags in freezer.

For almost a month Ditto hasn't lured Little One into the closet and closed the door on him. Today when I got home from work, I heard Little One meowing loudly and I found  Little One back in the closet. Ditto had removed his blanket and all his toys from the closet. I am assuming Little One was picking on Ditto again. Little One's way of picking on Ditto is to reach through the pillows on the couch and hit Ditto on the head while he is sleeping. Another thing Little One does to Ditto is to sit on back of my recliner, after he had loaded it with a number of toys, and one by one drop then on Ditto while he is sleeping. Little One will hide Ditto's favorite toys when Ditto is asleep. When Ditto goes to play with his toys he can't find them. After a few of these distractions, Ditto convinces Little One to go in the closet. Ditto then jumps up on the door and shuts Little One in the closet. Ditto then is able to spend the afternoon taking a peaceful nap. There is never a dull minute at my house. There must be a full moon.

1 pound fresh green beans

2 teaspoons dark roasted sesame oil
