Gate ~ Tea & Crumpets ~ Septic ~ Yams ~ Emily ~ Reruns w/ Spinach & Tomatoes ~ Pigs In A Blanket

Good 36ยบ somewhat cloudy morning.

Had rain on and off all yesterday afternoon. Nothing hard or even measurable, just sprinkles. Here's the lies for this week:

and the radar as it is right now...

Yesterday the gate guys installed my new gate. When they were done I got the "tour" of how everything works. Same gate codes but with the 4 digit one, you have to hit the # sign after entering it. Will get picture later... it started sprinkling while we were doing the 'gate' thing.

I bought some crumpets and lime curd at Harry and David last week. If you go to a 'tea room' you can have tea and crumpets.
So that's what I had for breakfast...

OMG, that lime curd is AWESOME!!!! I could eat it right out of the jar!! Oink oink oink
The septic guys arrived when the gate guys were still here. I was at the gate talking to them and had to back down to the turnaround spot. They checked everything and couldn't find a problem with the septic. Didn't smell anything either. Can't figure out the flies. Gave me some ideas as to finding out were they are coming from... one it to unscrew one of the drains and close the door and wait an hour to see if they are coming in that way. Otherwise they were scratchin' their heads! Also, they didn't charge me for a service call. Nice!!!
I cooked in my casserole Crock*Pot my favorite little yams. They take 3 hours on high. Cut in half, add water. YUMMMM! Great source of fiber and such a great taste!

Then dinner was reruns of Wednesday night, sorta.  I got these heirloom tomatoes at Harry and David..

Dumped in a package of fresh baby spinach, added some of the tomatoes cut in half, and drizzled on infused olive oil. Topped that with the noodles/chicken from Wednesday night and turned on high for an hour or so, then to low, stirred it all. OMGOOOOOD!!!!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.

National Pig In A Blanket Day

Pig in a Blanket Day is a day to eat a sausage wrapped in a pancake. Why? Because that's what "Pig in a Blanket" is.

Somebody, somewhere decided that this was a very special treat to them. So, they created  a special day to celebrate this culinary delight. Aren't you glad that they did?
How does one go about celebrating Pig in a Blanket Day? Cook up some sausage. Make some pancakes. Wrap the sausage inside of the pancake. Add maple syrup. Then, chow down.


  • 5cheese-flavored hot dogs
  • 7 1ounces refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (10 count)
  • 5slices American cheese
  1. Cut the Hot Dogs in Half.
  2. Flatten a biscuit and place half a cheese slice in the middle. The cheese should fit perfectly in the biscuit without hanging over the sides.
  3. Place a hot dog in the middle and wrap it up, like it's in a blanket.
  4. Place on a greased cooking sheet, seams down so it doesn't come apart.
  5. Bake as directed on the biscuit package.
