I have the gnarly peaches i got pieced so they may marinate in wine, onion (and song) gingerale and habeneros.  the kebabs are pineapple  and peaches  obviously pineapple awaits decimation! ….just saying the word makes me feel like murdering metallica with a rewrite of food instead of grimness (blackened, off and justice for all) not tonight/morning but soon. 🙂 wonder how the onions ‘ll do as caramelized? I didn’t prepared the as kebab-able.

in other news

the sabra red pepper hummus with multigrain tortilla chips were darn tasty.


(yes, my tastes change as I eat differently, I never used to like flaxseed much, it’s dealable now, and this hummus is NOT but it will suffice.

dreamed of ill perspective places supposedly grandma’s company I shant see to which I was suddenly a foot shorter than.  and aspirin flavored gum that didn’t work…thank goodness, I don’t like that ringing in my ears! (yes, I know what too much aspirin will do)

lotus French Toast Feast


To the Tune, Bee Gees’  “Stayin’ Alive”

Boiled or Fried?

Well just chop it on up and toss it in this here wok
Chicken ‘s in demand; bok choy to chop
Fry oil hot or steamed warm – which delish – I’m so torn
I don’t want alright nor disappointment’s OKAY
We’ll just see if i should have went the other way
Whether it’s dumpling or eggs rolls, man
You can’t argue China’s so so ON.

You know its better than any other – dial that phone, call your lover
and choose, boiled or fried, broiled or fried
Or is it Yan Can Cook thus so can you –
so choose boiled or fried
You-want. want. want-it. Boiled or fried, Boiled or fried
Chomp. comp. chomp. chomp. Boiled or fried


For a point of note, The person this was written to smile reading would most likely smile in general saying, “Both.”  😉

Day Dreaming

I more than likely will have filed a bid for a place I’d like by this time tomorrow evening.  I am dog watching FREEEEEE! as a bird and the dreams are simple joys specific folk and times.  I cant find what i want in the way of a linear representation of a rose I seem to see in my mind – but, I knew if I stared after it long enough, something…. would arise.  Here is a few pictures and links to bid your time til I’m less busy.

French Toast.  it’s not particularly uncommon nor outlandishly expensive which is nice when it’s not wishful thinking to want but to want realistically is a trick 🙂  so.  as i already can make french toast but lok to improve presentation of everything…. why not a flower motif?

In Buddhist symbolism the lotus is symbolic of purity of the body, speech, and mind as while rooted in the mud, its flowers blossom on long stalks as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire. It is also symbolic of detachment as drops of water easily slide off its petals.

Now, it’s of little concern if you want number two or number three it’s a simple cookie cutter die, and voila flick of the wrist to arrange this.  that is from left to right, top to bottom… 12,34… if you see this as a pattern to make.  it’s very much required this be white as western civilization demands any mention purity be powdered sugar or in my case an appropriate substitute of sugar substitutes.

I live in Georgia now so it shouldn’t be beyond me to procure or make ug peach syrup. whizzle/whirl some peach to puree and sugar/water syrups stuff if care is taken not to BURNIT.  some thickener is likely required pectin or cornstarch etc.

now I was thinking with this FINE start to the day, chicken sausage?  hey! I can’t have everything anymore! while I can easily fry a boatload of bacon up, that wouldn’t smack of healthy nor could I enjoy it.  so sadly it’s to alternatives land for the joy left of what i CAN have which is chicken sausage.  now i wish the particular apple cinnamon sausage i got was better as in spiced more but, I would try it again.  and anyone who knows flowers expects a stalk in there 😉 sausage link for the stem lines please. a big old dollop of whipped honey butter as you must religiously butter people up even if symbolically that’s such a farse! read the symbology and see what i’m not getting 😉  but laugh if you will as it’s just fun.I’m fairly sure i can add something else for stretching this if’n I need to. but a plate of french toast with sausages sounds nice enough

the simple syrup idea isn’t just from knowing what it’s supposed to maybe be but from a different moment food and company wherein baklava or baklava in this case is meant to illustrate that the traditional offering in American experiences is a pistachio one…it not so.  here’s one in floral water syrup orange adorning a walnut mixture.  I was actually thinking decadent glazed popcorn but baklava is the way that way so…. here’s a link.  i do read this is a recipe not mine.

the backlava with itself is durn tasty surely and wouldn’t do badly with chicken pitas.  yes, again i have dietary restrictions so while i am entirely free, why would i wish to overly promote what i cant partake of?  but popcorn?  mmmm yummy glazed popcorn with a bit of a baklava crunch to it?  weird but enjoyable sounding?  considering that and a cozy movie… which i’m ignoring mine.  Madadayo, an Akira Kurosawa film.


I’m out for the wantfuls and some rest up early with the dogs time enough to finish documenting for the later portion of the evening.

if I’m lucky, I will be in due diligence next week and mid month signing into a place of my own.

for the sake of having to describe the french toast idea to a long ago ex who’s both diabetic and blind.  I note that the shape of the lotus petals is somewhat similar to that of a tear drop and if you have that point at the top of the drop you may aim it around the clockface as in the point of one at nine am/pm the other at 3 pm/am choosing the stacked approach you would have first the nine am and then the 3pm point then a roughly ten thirty and one thirty points layer and finally the noooner – or – if you choose the fan approach, starting either at 3pm in sequencial points one thirty noon ten thirty and lastly none or the opposite way around so it’s either leftist or rightist as you prefer your symbols within symbols ;).  also while french toast is simply an egg bath for bread then fried, it’s very important one understand bread and eggs and frying etc to obtain a tasty breakfast! so if one imagines this typically you’d end of with half slices of texas toast thick bread as the tear drop shap removes roughly half the material of the slice… this in egg bath is maybe 2 or 3 eggs typically a splash of milk or water milk has calories, and perhaps some cinnamon  which is fried oh say in butter…more calories and topped with powdered sugar to it’s a beautiful white more calories and the deadly kind too….with fatty sausage…calories calories calories… oi easilya seven 800 calories meal which well it’s a trip to fat gut land and kill yourself quick for many with the diabetes.  or you can utilize thinner slices multigrain bread and utilizing sugar substitute keep this around but under 400 calories which is still decadendt but survivable.  but just so you are aware I got a kick out of whoops, what reference would she have? lol.  always be careful to remember what is destiny epiphany to you might leave others in the cold.  hard lesson to remember when lol I think on “people” hoping.  and yes, it’s very much possible for me to fancy this up in reality in some form. I just wish it to be a calorically appropriate one.
awoke 2:30 for emergency dog  doo dooing and bath.  no, there isn’t an element of excitement to my day!  uploaded the cadre of documentation showing I meet just BARELY the minimums set for me and have a mild bit of room to hear yes no or maybes ifs.  I would expect within this list i will have to provide a resend or so    — i have a case of procrastination otherwise on cleaning and collecting my own stuffs but ug i must move it or I’ll be annoyed.  yes, I can sense the day already is long. it technically hasn’t “begun” even…but it has.

Attention DETAIL!

(Title is a Quote from “Gettysburg” Turner Home Entertainment -upon delivering the prisioners to the next regiment.)

I went and visited my main townhome choices with sis and her hubs.  and a new place entirely – Drive BY style… of a proper house altogether with yard.

rather a fun outting even if i didn’t win on the scratch tickets gotten…visiting a wine /brew store for house other guy’s supplies and a new fruity something wine for batch 3.  bottles  and what not. tried getting next month’s bill set sarted and they’re of course closed til monday lol.  had breakfast at the awful waffle…waffle house and… acidic belly leaving and not overly enthusedhowever it was not the usual breakfast as i got a side salad and a set of hashbrowns smothered/grilled onions, peppered/jalepeno included, an capped mushrooms in.  or, actually an entire vegetarian affair oddly.

I may alter house hunting to go saturday after the paycheck arrives as i plan to make an offer really.  it’d take a miracle not to want to.

my choices are:

as better yardy as virginia street’s condo is, its less inviting entirely and perhaps mostly due to combined utilities which if so is a huge b.s. snarl to resolve also having thump thump top neighbors and the actual area itself gave the feel to others of less inviting if not outright sketch.

the  then option is 1319 hilton which would mean #8 never really mind #3 it’s nice  but the bank of sunlighted windows is a better offer than being off street.  it is closer also to all ammenities like stores safe enough to get to and shops like a sushi place and a couple of fast food offerings.  it is a place of going places yet enough can be done to also have a few over.


house is more yard keeping and further away with being semi quiet nice but the close convenience is is the sketch so more of a day place.  drawbacks obvious of more care but advantage of it leaving room to simple have a creative ball.  there is tacit chainlink meaning i could negotiate the wait for better but also can deal in the mean time.  -while it’s further it offers a better roommate offer closer to the school than the other places.  still leaving a spare room.

principal consideration is ability to plant a garden versus joking babylon of hanging potts.  trees can nice it up. I like a texas scarlet – quince and a loquat along with an almond tree or three all offering red burst and or pink bloom.   and of cour the difference also is 30% less for the home versus town home which may make all the diference fiscally.

I enjoyed thuroughly my cherry sprite zero mmmm.

is there better? sure, but i’m pleased with what i saw.  it’s enough to have a choice, it’s tacitly acceptable to the people i know.  it’s 20 minutes from the gate if anyone changes their mind and wishes to save money living here/there.
