“Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.”

The house was cold when I woke up. I stayed under the afghan not wanting to leave the warmth. Gracie was sleeping at the end of the couch, and she didn’t want to get up either.   Finally the need for coffee got me up, and I got Gracie up. We went outside and got the papers and Gracie went into the backyard. I waited while she finished then followed her back into the house. She got treats, and I got my coffee.

One of the cartoons in the paper mentioned today is Friday the 13th. I had no idea. Unless I have an appointment I lose track of the date, and it is only when I tear off yesterday that I see where I have to go today.

The day is lovely, a sunny day with a blue sky and a bit of a breeze. It is in the 60’s, average for this time of year, but it feels colder after the warm days.

The buses are here. I saw one at Chatham light. The passengers, all older people, were wandering on the beach and near the light. I saw another bus pulling into a seafood restaurant, the sort which has buoys, nets and plastic lobsters on the outside walls. I don’t need to see the menu to know it is mostly seafood but, it always includes hamburgers and for a bit more money, cheeseburgers. Both come with fries.

I’m not a big fan of cakes with one exception, Boston cream pie which doesn’t sound like a cake but don’t be deceived. I do like cupcakes as they are just the right amount of cake. I used to love Hostess chocolate cupcakes, and my local bakery has cupcakes like them including the white loopy line across the top of the chocolate icing. I buy one every now and then. Ice cream never belongs on or beside a cake.

My favorite fruit is a banana. It is easy to eat, can be eaten alone, or in cereal or with ice cream in a banana split. In Africa the peel made them safe to eat without washing them first. They were perfect food to buy when traveling as they were sold along the road and at every stop. I order them every time I do Peapod grocery shopping.

Eggs are great for any meal. Many times I make bacon and eggs for dinner. I like the yoke soft so I can slop it up with the toast. My egg salad must have celery and lettuce as it is a bit bland without them. Besides, I like the crunch.

I am not a picky eater. I eat with discretion.

    Give me Hosstess Chocolate cup cakes any day of the week followed by Twinkies. I have a sweet tooth and enjoy sugary treats at either breakfast, lunch or dinner. The only thing I disagree with you are bananas and egg salad. When I was a teenager my cousin and I were traveling by Greyhound bus from El Paso to Dallas when the bus stopped for dinner and we ate egg salad sandwiches. I became violently ill on the last portion of the trip and I have never eaten egg salad since.

    Today was sunny and warm with a high around 90 degrees.

      I can take or leave Twinkies but can never turn down a Hostess cupcake. Like you, I have a sweet tooth. Breakfast is the only meal when I seldom have anything sweet.

      The mayonnaise was probably the culprit in that sandwich. I’d never eat egg salad unless I made it at home or could keep it on ice if I was buying it.

      I understand a bad experience turning you off from that sandwich. The one time I drank whiskey when I was in college I was miserably sick the next day. I haven’t touched it since.

      Boston will get to 80˚ this weekend so we’ll probably be in the 70’s.

    I’m afraid I eat anything as long as it is sweet 🙂 Cakes, cookies, pastry it all goes down 🙂 I do tend to like it less if there’s lots of coffee in it though, had it too often when I grew up I think.

    I have actually seen a few motorhomes by the lake this autumn, normally we have no kind of tourists here this time of year but it looks like there’s a new trend amongst the fanatic crane followers, they now follow the cranes south back home again.

    Bananas and Mangos are my favorite fruits. Now days people make pancakes with them too. Just a few bananas and a couple of eggs and then just start frying them. I haven’t tried it yet but I think it is a must try 🙂

    Have a great day!

      I’m into sweets as well. There is a candy store near me, and when I walk in, she knows exactly what I want.

      There are a few motor homes here as well, but there are limited places for them to camp, not many with electrical hook-ups. If I were rich, I’d have a deluxe motor home and I’d travel all over.

      I am not a fan of pancakes. There is something about the consistency I don’t like. I first Ate mangoes in Ghana, and I also like them.

      Have a great day!!
