After clocking out of work for the day I decided to use up my $5 off coupon to purchase a few things: a bottle of Coca-Cola Zero, a bag of Lay’s potato chips and a York peppermint patty which I saved it after dinner. So now I’m going to be doing my first Turn n’ Burn because I go to work at noon tomorrow and get off at 9 in the evening just to eat something and head straight to bed, then the day after tomorrow I go back to my regular work schedule from 7 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon.
But in the meantime, enjoy this open threadening you fellow Slackers while I get a good night’s rest inside my own headquarters. 🙂
My sister Tomala made some healthy breakfast for the both of us from yesterday and today. The first one is oatmeal with different kinds of fruit like cherries, blueberries, cranberries and freshly chopped banana:
I’d say this is quite delicious and it’s got cinnamon, maple syrup, brown sugar, pralines and a little pinch of salt as the main ingredients. Then here’s the next one which is oatmeal but with sort of a Hawaiian twist to it:
This kind of oatmeal was made earlier this morning. The main ingredients for it are vanilla extract, brown sugar, another sliced banana, juicy pineapple chunks, walnuts, strawberries, pineapple and mango chunks. I call it ‘The Special Ed Oatmeal’. 😛
My family and I had some chili and corn muffins for dinner this evening after our home inspection is a success, and while I was having my second round of dinner I heard one of my sister Tomala’s ceramic bowls fall off the top of our microwave in the kitchen, landed on the kitchen table causing the bowl to shatter into bits and pieces. So we got up the broom and dustpan to clean up all the tiny ceramic shards by using the broom to sweep them into the dustpan and then straight into the trash. It appears that all the ceramic bowls were stacked in awkward positions according to my dad.
Anyways, here is a nice cat pic from last month of this handsome little guy being a couch weasel:
My sister Tomala made some biscuits and gravy with scrambled eggs and tri tip steak for breakfast earlier this morning:
She also made hot white watermelon tea to go along with our breakfast:
Then I jumped back into playing some more Borderlands 2 this evening just to up myself a bit, and so far I’m getting closer to Level 38 as Mechromancer. 🙂 After I got done playing, I used a little bit of Borderlands 2 video footage in Shotcut to make an animated GIF of a Spiderant Queen minding its own business when suddenly it got blown up by a single sniper bullet up its thorax:
Either way, my Dad will go to the bank tomorrow to pick up some money and then my dad and I will run over to Fred Meyer to do our soda can deposit so I can put two-thirds of my cash in my Steam wallet to buy some cool games in the Steam Winter Sale and keep one-third of my money in the bank.
We had our friendly elderly visitor coming over to our house earlier this evening and enjoyed some delicious Thanksgiving dinner which is turkey with cranberries, mashed potatoes with gravy, stuffing, candied yams and artichokes. Here’s the screenshot of the Thanksgiving dinner while spending time with the whole family:
This was good food on a happy early Thanksgiving. I can’t wait to watch this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade tomorrow if there is a live stream for it available on YouTube. 🙂
Today’s weather turned out to be nice than last couple days ago. My sister Tomala made some delicious shrimp pasta for dinner this evening along with cooked vegetables which are diced bell peppers, onions and corn. Unfortunately I didn’t have a picture of it because I was too busy enjoying my food, but it was really good food by the way. 🙂
After I got done eating dinner I decided to have fun by playing TF2, and I have sold enough garbage to purchase some new stuff from the Steam market:
I’ve had such a good time playing around with various people on random online community servers tonight. Enjoy this open thread!
San_San taught me how to make apple pie and lemonade in the kitchen this rainy evening. I was using the peeler to peel the skins off the apples and pears so that I can use the food processor to easily slice them up, and I placed all the sliced apples and pears in a clear large bowl and then add a few ingredients such as nutmeg, cinnamon and a dash of salt.
Next thing I have to do is use a wooden spatula to mix up the ingredients until they’re fully covered in nutmeg and cinnamon, and then we put all the apples and pears in the pie covered the top of it with crispy crust especially around the edges. After the pie was baking in the oven for about 40 minutes we moved on to making lemonade, and while San is squeezing lemons to add lemon juice in a medium-sized glass measuring cup I added some sugar in the water from a small glass measuring cup was warmed up in the microwave for 2 minutes and slowly stirred it with a metal whisk until the sugar water is completely clear.
Then once that’s done we used another medium-sized glass measuring cup to fill up about a half a cup of water because there’s no measurements at the very bottom so we’re gonna have to eyeball it to make sure it was the right amount so that I can pour it all into the lemon juice and then place it in the refrigerator for a sweet, cold lemonade taste.
I was assisting San_San in the kitchen on getting ready for dinner. I mashed up the guacamole, stirred up the salsa that San made, and then used the food processor for the first time to shred some cheese with it.
We had some tacos along with some tortilla chips for dinner but unfortunately I do not have a picture of it because I was too busy spending time eating with my family, which is a good family activity to do. 🙂
We had our friendly visitor coming over earlier this gray, rainy day afternoon. San_San made us some delicious meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans for dinner along with the salad that our guest made. I have a picture of it right here:
San_San also made some freshly baked apple custard pie for dessert last night. Unfortunately I don’t have a photo of the pie but it was super tasty and it sure was nice seeing our visiting guest. 🙂
I like to blog about certain games that I like to play. I also blog about cats, art and other things in life.
