In the Navy in 1950 my “buddies” told me to drink it or skip the coffee break.Naive, I believed them but needed four teaspoons of sugar to make it drinkable.Several months ago read of cold-brew in…Continue

I still make smoothies with oatmeal, fruit and nuts, my ideal breakfast. (and there's the fire department racing past for a fire in the harbour once more) Success with the sanctary, Joan!

I love a hot, steaming bowl of oatmeal with raisins or fresh fruit served with it. Cream of Wheat is one of my very favorites, and Roman Meal tantalizes my taste buds. My very favorite breakfast is toast with chunky peanut butter and my homemade concord grape jam. 

I spent yesterday finishing making my jam, and it turned out utterly delicious. I used no sugar and did use pectin. Thankfully, I was able to get it to jell. My juice is all canned and ready to go into the pantry. I hope to get to the apples tomorrow to make sliced apples for pies throughout the winter. We still have a few jars of last year's applesauce so I won't make more this year. 

Larry and Zac went hunting yesterday for our year's meat supply and came home with only a half-eaten bag of oversweet chocolate covered donuts. It is a wonder they weren't sick today. 

I don't eat or cook deer, myself. The fellows like the yearly outing and Laurie likes to cook it. She is the best cook in the family, bar none.

Thanks, Plinius, we take care of our soil, will be having our forest thinned in the spring so that trees will be able to grow healthier and let sunlight penetrate to the ground. We want to enable deer and other wildlife to have a healthy, safe place to graze and nests, and for the migratory birds. Our goal is to have a National Wildlife Federation Sanctuary.

Spud, where do you get catfish nuggets? I don't do the shopping anymore; L&L do all that work. I would like to tell them where to look so they don't have to go on a treasure hunt. We had a lot of catfish when we lived in Texas; I love it.

That's bad news, Joan! I hope you can find ways to stop industry in a residential area, or at least have them take good safety measures. Here the oil industry and other chemical industry is just at the other side of the river, a few kilometres away, and it's a bad feeling. It would be great if you can keep the smelter away!

Yes, your forests are vast, that is what makes Canada so attractive to a lot of people. The wildlife, the fresh air, the waters of streams and lakes, the soils usually rich in biomass, and the folks who go there have engaging lives, and they have a strong sense of self-sufficiency. 

Our little paradise faces the threat of a silicon smelter going in right across the highway from all the schools, the hospital and nursing home stand only a few blocks away, the smokestack will rise sending tons of particles from Newport to 300 miles or more, filling valleys with carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide with its acid rain, who know what all else. The company claims the bag room catches all the bad stuff; the science shows that the tiny particles escape into the smoke spreading acid rain, among other particles that kill flora and fauna. Heart and lung diseases historically exist in smelter areas. 

We, L&L and I, go to all the meetings, contribute to making the information known to the public, help finance our lawyers, and share the experiences with some very colorful citizens of the area. Newport, an old lumbering town, no longer has the burning piles of waste wood.

Not a cereal person myself. I just don't care for it.

Hello, fellow coffee and tea drinkers. It's a cool Sunday morning in October here in Indiana, but I can see the sun poking its head up.

I had a light breakfast of pan-fried mushrooms (puffball I found), fruit (red raspberries and watermelon) with yogurt, and coffee. After years of eating nothing but cereal for breakfast, I've added a variety of choices, and have cereal only about once a week.

It helps being retired, where one has more time to prepare eggs and bacon or whatever. And I mean retired from work (teaching) and attending church! Ah, freedom!

We've been rather rainy here, which is unusual, but we're grateful for it.

I've been purchasing different types of coffee to try, as I like to explore something different other than the same one all the time.

I don't get out much...hahahaha.....

The hot spell is over. It's a good morning to visit our local donut shop where my granddaughter works (Saturday only) and where my grandson is selling popcorn for Cub Scouts. A two for one stop.

Then I plan to drive 20 miles to the farmers market where my SIL has a vegetable stand set up. If he needs help, I'm available.

Have a good one!
