Clouds ~ Crane ~ Hummingbirds ~ Bacon & Egg Breakfast Grilled Cheese ~ World's Oddest Houses ~ Clouds (again) ~ Cheese Doodle Day

Good 29ยบ everything is frozen foggy morning!
Yesterday there were lots of clouds, but the blue sky peeked through as well as some sun for a bit. Nice! I went outside to take a couple pictures...
OMGOSH, there was a crane out in the pasture! I have never seen one here! 

He walked up the hill a bit and then when I turned my head he was gone!
At the same time there was one of my hummingbirds eating...

This is a Rufous hummingbird. Most migrate south in the winter, but a few of them stay here all winter. Must be tough little guys!!
My friend Lydia, down in Diamond Bar California took this photo of a hummingbird in her yard. She said he was a "poser" because he just sat there for the longest time.
He is a Broad-billed Hummingbird

This doubly good breakfast sandwich combines a load of favorites all in one! Imagine starting your day off with a hearty and melty Bacon and Egg Breakfast Grilled Cheese!
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk or water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 teaspoons butter at room temperature, divided
  • 4 slices whole wheat or white bread
  • 2 slices slices Colby-Jack cheese
  • 4 slices full-cooked bacon
  1. In a small bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt, and pepper until blended.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat 1 teaspoon butter until hot. Pour in egg mixture. As eggs begin to set, gently pull the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large, soft curds. Continue cooking -- pulling, lifting, and folding eggs -- until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do NOT stir constantly. Remove from skillet.
  3. Spread remaining butter evenly on 1 side of each bread slice. Place 2 slices in skillet, buttered side down. Top evenly with scrambled eggs, cheese, and bacon. Cover with remaining bread, buttered side up.
  4. Grill sandwiches over medium heat, turning once, until bread is toasted and cheese is melted, 2 to 4 minutes.

Then later, as the sun was moving towards setting we got some wild clouds....

National Cheese Doodle Day

It’s National Cheese Doodle Day! Cheese doodles are a snack food made with cornmeal that has been puffed, baked, and coated with cheddar cheese. Morrie Yohai invented the cheese doodle in the 1940s. After serving as a Marine in World War II, he returned to his home in the Bronx and took over the family business—a snack food company called Old London Foods.
During the 1960s, Wise Foods, Inc. acquired the company and cheese doodles became part of the potato chip division. Today, cheese doodles are one of Wise's strongest brands. The company produces over 15 million pounds of cheese doodles each year. That’s enough to fill 36 Olympic-sized swimming pools!
To celebrate National Cheese Doodle Day, pick up a bag of cheese doodles to share with friends!
