Coyote ~ Bruiser ~ Crock Pot Ham Tomato Egg Casserole ~ Wayne Low ~ Chocolate Cake Day

Don't know if it is noticeable at your end, but I am having a problem with the font and sizes. Sorry.

Good 39┬║ drizzling rain morning. 

Yesterday morning I went outside to feed the birds. Dude was out in the front yard and started barking like crazy. I went to see what it was and way way way way up on the fence line was a tiny animal, looked like a coyote, moving towards the forest .

Later I was at my desk, Bruiser didn't want to go out. Unusual for him. He got comfy on my printer/fax (covered with a towel just for that reason!) and was intent watching outside through the dining room window...

He seemed a little nervous. I decided to look out and there was the coyote! I grabbed my camera and got a picture. Not the best, as I didn't have time to get my extra long lens.......

Anyway, interesting how our pets can see/hear/sense animals like that and are cautious. Well, Bruiser is cautious, Dude is just screaming at the coyote that this is his territory and for Mr. Coyote to LEAVE!

Here is an interesting easy crock pot breakfast...

2 T. butter -melted
10 eggs -beaten
1 1/4 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup grape tomatoes – cut in half (or, diced jalape├▒os)
4 oz Deli Ham- Chopped
8 oz Cream Cheese- Cubed

Melt butter in a 
6 quart multi-cooker or add melted butter to a traditional 6 quart slow cooker.

In a bowl combined beaten eggs with heavy cream and season with salt and pepper.

Pour eggs into your slow cooker and evenly add ham, tomatoes (salt if desired) and cream cheese to the casserole. (Then I would sprinkle some grated cheddar cheese on top!)

Cover and cook on high for 60-90 minutes or until eggs set.

Here are today’s five thing to know about Chocolate & Cake:

  1. The first French word for chocolate mousse translates in English “chocolate mayonnaise”

  2. The “blood” that you see in infamous “shower scene” in Psycho is actually chocolate syrup.

  3. The history of chocolate cake goes back to 1764, when Dr. James Baker discovered how to make chocolate by grinding cocoa beans between two massive circular millstones.

  4. A process for making silkier and smoother chocolate called conching was developed in 1879 by Swiss Rodolphe and made it easier to bake with chocolate as it amalgamates smoothly and completely with cake batters.

  5. In the U.S.A, “chocolate decadence” cakes were popular in the 1980s; in the 1990s, single-serving molten chocolate cakes with liquid chocolate centers and infused chocolates with exotic flavors such as tea, curry, red pepper, passion fruit, and champagne were popular.

    Today’s Quote: “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”~Charles M. Schulz
