Moving Is A Nightmare! 6 Tips To Ease Your Clients’ Headaches

Adella Miesner

Jay Thompson is a former brokerage owner who spent six years working for Zillow Group. He retired in August 2018 but can’t seem to leave the real estate industry behind. His weekly Inman column publishes every Wednesday.

About six years ago, I was living in apartment 307 in downtown Seattle. A lovely little one-bedroom, it was perfect for me at the time. My wife was living in Phoenix, wrapping up selling our brokerage and getting our daughter off to college.

A year later, she moved up to Seattle, and we needed a bigger place. Apartment 304 — a nifty two-bedroom perfect for our needs — became available. Yes, it was just three doors down the hall, about 80 feet from door to door. How painful could it be to move 80 feet? Turns out, very! Moving just isn’t fun, at all, no matter the distance.

Fast-forward to last week.

No-Cook Cooking: Elevate simple meals with fall-flavored salads | Food & Cooking

Adella Miesner

In normal years, fall fans can’t wait until autumn arrives. Toss in pandemic fatigue and a losing battle against stress eating, and this year, we’re setting land speed records for yanking sweaters out of drawers and pushing the season on hot apple cider and pumpkin-spice everything.

But if you’re in the camp that mourns the end of summer, take heart; the light, refreshing salads that fueled your hot-weather lifestyle don’t need to be packed away with flip-flops and tank tops. Fall salads still have the power to nourish and the versatility to use up odds and ends of fresh produce; they just pull in new seasonal ingredients. No-Cook Cooking cooks know they can enjoy salads tailored to every abundant day of the year.

If romaine was your go-to bed of choice for summer salads, try adding some spinach and kale; tucking a few mustard greens among the kale leaves begs

Week 6 Fantasy Football Survival Tips, Waiver Targets And Lineup Options

Adella Miesner

Fantasy Football Survival Tip: Patience

When live scoring was introduced into Fantasy Football in the late 1990s, it changed the game. It made following Fantasy performances more fun and compelling than ever. At the same time, it also created “Fantasy Fear”, which many players exhibit throughout the course of a week. If your opponent gets a lead at any time, or your players don’t start off a game well, fear of a loss creeps in and sometimes, thoughts of a lost season filter in with it.

Building the right roster, though, and adjusting it throughout the season is not the only key to Fantasy survival. Maintaining a level-headed approach will help you see things clearer. You cannot overreact when your team is trailing and there is still a lot of NFL football left to be played. The story of the week and the day has not been fully written early

These performance-based restricted stock units are scheduled to vest on October 1, 2023. The “target” number of restricted stock units is reported. Between 0% and 200% of the target number of units may vest based on Apple’s relative total shareholder return from the first day of Apple’s fiscal 2021 and ending with the last day

Cooking out this weekend? Bring some sizzle to campfire fajitas | Brand Ave. Studios

Adella Miesner

Campfire Cooking is sponsored by Terry Subaru.

Fajitas are a family-friendly Tex-Mex favorite that happen to be perfect for campfire cooking. All you have to do is toss the sliced peppers, onions and steak with a mess of aromatic and flavorful seasonings, wrap it all up in foil and throw the packets on hot coals.



Fajitas Ingredients

Simple ingredients make this an easy meal.




It could hardly be easier, but I do have a couple of tips to share to ensure fajita success.

First, try putting your steak in the freezer for about 30 minutes prior to slicing it – this helps to ensure thin, even pieces. Second, you want to build your fire so it has a good coal bed. You don’t want to toss the packets on active flames, so be patient and let your fire burn down a bit. Also, check one of the packets

Thai noodle soup can be as mild or spicy as you like when you make it at home.




Love ordering Thai noodle soup takeout? Try making it at home. It’s super simple and all you need is five ingredients to make the broth. Once you master that, you can have fun with the vegetables and noodles. I like the technique of roasting the vegetables rather than simmering them in the broth, as it slightly sweetens them.

Easy Thai Noodle Soup

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons red Thai curry paste
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 (1-pound) package rice noodles
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 4 fresh basil leaves

9 tips for making the perfect ricotta gnocchi at home

Adella Miesner

Homemade ricotta gnocchi may not be an average weeknight dinner, but with a little practice it can become a regular part of your meal rotation. And don’t worry, I was once like you, intimidated by the idea of combining cheese and flour in a delicate way that then requires rolling and cutting. It seemed … unattainable.

But these “little lumps” are quintessential Italian cooking. There are three varieties of gnocchi: potato, semolina (alla Romana) and ricotta. Even though the ingredients vary, there is a continuity that runs through each type: that the end result should be light and airy.

All three gnocchi require different techniques. Potato and ricotta gnocchi are similar because both are rolled into a nugget of sorts and cooked in salted boiling water. Both indicate doneness when they float to the top of the water.

However, semolina gnocchi preparation is similar to polenta. The semolina is boiled
