Marks Morning Oats

Here is my recipe for a variation of overnight oats.

1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup milk of choice
Half cup of yogurt (i like vanilla, strawberry or mango)
1 cup frozen fruit (or more)
3 second squirt of honey. (Or more)

In the order they appear on the list, put the ingredients in a clean injar from spicy hot Indian curry. Let sit in the fridge overnight.

You can vary the recipe as you like, but then you can’t call them Marks Morning Oats, you’re going to have to figure out your own name for the.

Have a great day!

Breakfast of Champions!

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.

You should try it sometime! Live a little!

Pickleball and Tacos

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.

Have a great weekend!

Wendys Combos

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.

Anyway, I’m off to work again, Happy Tuesday!

International Taco Day 2022

Yeah! International Taco Day again! I hope you get to enjoy many many tacos today!

I’m glad today that jury duty is over. I was in a funk yesterday. The world is a much better place today.

i had a small harvest from the garden yesterday afternoon.

i just washed them and ate them. That carrot is about 3 inches long! Huge.

And I’m off to work. Have a great day!

Queens Funeral Day

Today is the holiday for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral. I watched lot of it, till they put the casket in the hearse.

it was a good, busy weekend. Saturday was the first session of four session Home Gardening Course. It was good and informative.

yesterday i went to an 0700 yoga class at One Heart then diving,

pike blenny

In the afternoon I went out on a boat trip to Stingray City.. My stingray pictures are still on the camera, but here’s the sunset

Had a big beef sausage and egg breakfast this morning and not i’ll probably putz around the yard today.

Cast Iron

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

Have a fantastic week!

Moonrise Moonset

Moonrise last night.

last night I went out to dinner at Tukka with some friends visiting from Virginia. I took the above picture of the full moon rising.

Moonset this morning.

This morning, I took the above shot of the moon going down. Amazing, huh?

People always think it’s the sun in the day and the moon at night, actually the moon is up in the day half the month and up in the night the other half. Last night started the night moon half.

I am glad its Friday. Yardwork weekend and diving are my hopes for the weekend.

Have a very good day and weekend. I wish you the best!

Guava Cat Pee

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..

Have a great day!

Beets and Lettuce (And Peppers)

new anti cat/chicken lid

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!

Have a good rest-of-the week!
