Pictured above we have vanilla almond milk with banana added to the milk. It’s quite sweet. Close to a little too sweet. AND you have yer chocolate cake. A whole chocolate cake. Bigger than a doughnut. This was my breakfast the other day. And coffee, the coffee did the trick, pulling the whole meal together.
Pickleball lesson #1 was really fun. I had never seen a ball or paddle before. The ball is like a whiffleball and the paddle is best described as an oversized ping pong paddle. It was fun and easy and I’m looking forward to the next lesson and can see myself playing regularly.
After the lesson, we went to a new place Taco Cantina. It was very good..
The Cayman Islands needed a place like this.
Tonight the Cayman Islands Roundup starts, 14th annual. I’ll be there at noon today setting up my sound and recording equipment for a full weekend of AA Speakers and workshops and events.
The other day I went to Wendys, I seldom go to any fast food places, but I felt like using the drive thru. I ordered the #9 combo, grilled chicken sandwich. An outrageous $9.35. I placed my order, the man in the speaker box replied “Do you want medium or large combo?” I said I didn’t know what that meant, it wasn’t on the menu.. The speaker voice asked if I wanted a medium fries and soda or a large fries and soda?” I repeated, “I don’t know, I only see one thing on the menu, #9 combo, $9.35.” “Ahhh,” said the voice in the box, “you want the small combo.”
So, I ordered a sepcific thing, the employee automatically tried to give me an item more expensive than I requested, (and the item I requested wasn’t even presented as an option.)
Isn”t that illegal? Bait and switch? Racketeering? It’s gotta be illegal. Another reason not to eat fast food too often. they try to rip people off, so less people go, so they need to rip off the remaining customers even worse.
I picked a batch of bananas last week Their type is called botlers. They are more like a plantain than a banana. Everyone on my street has a big bunch from my batch. They’re good if you cook them in a frying pan with a little oil. My Teflon pan wasn’t very good for this and someone recommended a cast iron skillet. So I went out and got one.
It is so good, I don’t think I will ever use my old non-stick pans any more. Tonight I had eggs and turkey sausage for dinner, cooked in the cast iron.
Went diving today, rough with a lot of current, but still good.
Now its back to work Monday, and report for jury duty again
I came home yesterday afternoon and thought the litter box was stinking. I keep it pretty clean anyway and it didn’t seem too bad. I figured the cat peed outside the box somewhere, but all inspections revealed nothing unusual.
Finally I realized, it was one of the two guavas a friend had given me. One was “over”, I threw it out the back door. The other seemed pretty good so I cut it in half, delicious looking beautiful pink. I took a bite.
It tasted like smelly armpit.
I threw it out the back door too.
The cat pee smell is gone too. Not sure how I feel about guavas anymore..
Back to work today. I’m glad to be back on my routine.
This long weekend I built another anti cat, anti chicken lid for one of the planters. When I get done, all three will have them. The original, which is probably over 10 years old, is being refurbished, planter and lid.
I transplanted my beet and lettuce sprouts in the grower yesterday. I hope they survive. I’ve got peppers on the back porch. I put them in my pasta sauce and my salads . I’m going to have to start giving them away..The lettuce I can really use, lettuce is expensive here!
I have a house and yard full of plants. More coming!
