“My favorite time of day is to get up and eat leftovers from dinner, especially spicy food.”

The string of lovely days continues. The sun, the blue sky and the warmth make it a day to be outside. I have to fill the bird feeders, and I’m going to add books and clean my little library. I also have a new set of outside lights. I just have to figure where and how to place them. The spawns of Satan eat wires. I wished electrocution on them but that didn’t happen.

Cat2 was sitting in front of the bed when I checked the cats’ room this morning. Cat2 is pretty. (She or He?) has white across half of (his or her) face. I sweet talked to the kitty hoping it would become less afraid of me. I didn’t go in the room. The cat kept moving its head from me to Henry who was just outside the gate. I’ll go in after a few more sightings and more sweet nothings.

Last night I actually made dinner for myself. Lately I have been eating cereal or yogurt or crackers and cheddar. I did make the most delicious grilled cheese the other day, but I just haven’t care to make anything else. Last night I caramelized Vidalia onions then added a yellow pepper. Once it was fried, I added sweet freshly made Italian sausages. I had also bought a fresh loaf of boule bread and used it for my sausage, pepper and onion sandwich. Cole- slaw was my side. I added Za’atar seasoning, and that brought the cole-slaw to a whole new level. My dinner was scrumptious. Even better is I have leftovers for lunch.

When I was a kid, my mother often made one of my all time favorite dishes, peppers and eggs. She’d make it to take to the beach and for barbecues. She fry peppers and onions add the eggs and finally add some tomato sauce. Just the right amount of sauce was the key. She’d serve it in rolls. That it was cold didn’t matter. It was delicious.

Food and my mother and my growing up are intrinsically connected. My holiday table is always graced with memories of my mother. I serve the food she made every year, the dishes which made holidays so very special.

    The weather is the opposite over here and tomorrow Dorian will arrive.Compared to how he was over at Yours he’s now an old man with little strength πŸ™‚ He will give us more rain though and by now our ground water level must be almost normal again πŸ™‚

    I’ve been lazy when it comes to make dinner here at home, the most advanced I’ve done is hamburgers with just fried onions and nothing much else πŸ™‚ Well I do buy cooked lunch at work so I guess that can count as real dinner πŸ™‚

    For some reason I never connect food and my mother in any way πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Have a great day!

      Hi Christer,
      We got quite a bit of rain and some strong winds. August was a bit dry but July seemed to have rain three or four times every week. The weather has been superb the last few days, and tomorrow will be the best day, warm and sunny.

      I too get lazy at dinner time. For a while I was ordering in a couple of times a week, but I need to start saving for Ghana so no more take-out. The peppers and onions were great at lunch today.

      Given what you’ve said about your mother’s cooking, I totally understand!!

      Have a wonderful day!!

    Hi Kat,

    Peppers, onions and sausage are great but I never heard of peppers and eggs, hot or cold. It’s immaterial if I have ever heard of a dish as long as you enjoy eating it. We have been ordering dinner in because it’s been too hot to cook. Today we got a break from the heat since the high temperature only hit 96 degrees.

      Hi Bob,
      I think peppers and eggs are an Italian dish. I believe it was my aunt, married to an Italian, who was the source for the recipe. I’d ask for it if there was a barbecue when I’d go visit my parents for the weekend.

      It has been perfectly lovely here, and tomorrow is supposed to be the best day so far.
