Cooking for two: Unlike dryer, panino doesn't disappoint

posted: 11/22/2017 1:48 a.m. Discuss

The dryer does its thing, spinning around and around without doing that other thing: drying. Our clothes enjoy the ride, and when it stops, they tumble out, damp and dizzy, begging for another go.

Asian wings add tailgate kick

posted: 11/22/2017 1:47 a.m. Discuss

Instead of the typical hot Buffalo flavor, why not shake up your tailgate Sunday with sticky, spicy Asian-style hot wings? These are baked, then sauced and served with a cool cucumber-lime dipping sauce that will remind you of the cold yogurt condiment raita, which is often used to cut the heat of spicy Indian food.

Uncorked: Let guests choose from several wines

posted: 11/22/2017 1:44 a.m. Discuss

Thanksgiving is one of the holidays for which I usually spend a great deal of time selecting the wines. The holiday offers a plethora of food choices, which makes wine selection the ultimate challenge. It has to please everyone and fit with everything at a traditional turkey dinner.

Helpful Hints

DEAR HELOISE: If one of our family members calls and asks to come over and bring the kids, we usually say "yes," because we're not busy. Then after a while they'll say, "Where are we going for lunch?" We're always put off, because "lunch" wasn't part of the plan, but we graciously go to a restaurant and eat with them. When the bill arrives, they always hesitate and never offer to pay, so my husband pays the bill. How do we stop this selfish behavior from moochers?

Happy birthday. You've a few surprises up your sleeve, and they will be very well received over the next three months. You may start to wonder if the job you took on is really within your ability. No one is successful alone. Reach out for help.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I've had several invitations to be with some of my family for Thanksgiving, but I've turned them all down. I lost my wife to cancer a few months ago, and it just would be too painful to be with them. And anyway, I don't have much to be thankful for this year.

DEAR ABBY: Fiance refuses to vacate house for girls' weekend

posted: 11/22/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I live with my fiance, and we are being married in eight months. When I asked him if he would go and stay with his parents or some friends on a weekend when my girlfriend comes into town so we can have girl time, he got highly offended and said he isn't leaving "his" house. I pay more than he does in rent, and I don't feel I should have to rent a separate place.

Parenting: 'Autism spectrum disorder' is the issue du jour

posted: 11/21/2017 1:45 a.m. Discuss

Q In the school district where I used to teach, I attended many meetings concerning children with special needs. Many of the kids in question were said to be "on the (autism) spectrum." In 15 years I witnessed the number of supposedly autistic children go from practically zero to enough to fill a special education class at almost every one of our 30-plus schools. A good number of these children were eventually mainstreamed into my class, and I felt then and even more strongly now that they were wrongly diagnosed. I can only think of two kids who in my estimation were classically autistic. Will you please clarify the difference between a legitimate autism diagnosis and one involving the so-called "spectrum"?

DEAR CAROLYN: My sister, "Sarah," is turning 30 soon. Except during college, she has lived with my parents rent-free her entire life. I have always taken the stance of, "It's my parents' and sister's business what they do," and never brought it up.

Happy birthday. Your creativity is going strong through the end of the year, but it's your practical efforts and team building actions that carry a plan to the payout.
