RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

I dunno, Magnus. I'm not tempted to ask, either... More clouds and rain inbound. The far west is getting what's normally our dry and extremely hot weather. Wildfires abound. It's kind of strange, in a good way, to not being on fire watch in July. Mom's out of the arm sling and using her arm again. She's still getting therapy at home for a while longer. She's supposed to be wearing compression socks until the edema subsides, but I doubt she will, as they are tight and somewhat difficult to put on. I'll be hauling her to at least six more medical appointments before the end of the month, but then I get a break for a while. We're trying to rip out the rosemary bushes that didn't survive the February cold, but those roots are fighting us. We need to get that area cleared so we can plant our new Copper Canyon Daisy plants. These are supposed to be deer repellant butterfly and honeybee flowers. I really like the foliage scent; very spicy. Copper Canyon Daisy We planted tomatoes yesterday for the fall/winter garden. Still only flowers instead of fruit on the cantaloupe, so WLToo is going to try a powder that's supposed to get the plant to produce fruit. We'll see. Czarny has finally figured out that when it's dark, he gets treats. So as soon as it's fully dark, he starts pestering Spousal Unit for his treats. He's also apparently figured out that once he gets the treats, he's inside for the night, because he's not bugging us to go back out afterward. I had some clothes on my drying rack out by the pool yesterday. The first time Czarny noticed them swinging in a very light breeze, he went full body poof instantly and his eyes went huge. But he worked up enough nerve to slink over and sniff one of the shirts; once he did, he unpoofed and strolled back to his favorite porch chair. I pretended to not see it, so he wasn't embarrassed. Time to put together a bit of lunch. Later, y'all.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

It's become decidedly soggy around here. Over a week of daily rain, some quite heavy, several flood warnings in the lower areas. At least the normal high 90s temps haven't shown up yet. Pool is more than full. I love it when the rainwater refills it; water feels super silky. Cantaloupe vines are very, very happy. Lots of flowers, so I hope we will actually see more than two cantaloupes harvested this year. I'd made a couple of fruit and nut loaves for the 4th, and had so much left over that I thought, what the heck, and fed a few pieces to Leoghaire. She loves it so much that she's actually putting muzzle marks on the glass in the door, much like her mama did. Still have an entire loaf left, so I'm giving her a daily treat; she certainly doesn't need supplemental feeding with all the rain keeping the vegetation growing, so it is just a treat. We are somewhat concerned about Leoghaire, though. She looks pregnant, but we know she isn't. I wonder if it's whatever ailment will kill her, as she is about seven years old, which is the average lifespan for whitetail does around here. Even though she isn't near as inclined to hang around with us as her mama was, we'll miss her when she does leave us. Czarny got highly agitated the other day, the first time Leoghaire marched up to the door and let us know she was here for her treat. He'd never seen her on the porch, which is his domain. Fortunately, Czarny was inside. He fluffed up on this side of the door and called her names. She ignored him. It was pretty funny to watch. Think I'll stroll around outside for a bit, and see if Leoghaire is nearby. Later, y'all.

RE: Favorite Leftovers Recipes

We have leftover Schlotzky's sandwiches, dips, lemon chess pie, and an entire Fruit & Nut Loaf. I'm going to soak it in brandy.

RE: Dried Fruit and Nut Loaf

Just made two for Sunday's gathering. Didn't have enough specific dried fruit or nuts, so I filled in with trail mix. The M&Ms have created some interesting colors...

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

We've only managed a little over an inch, Magnus. No need for pontoons yet. The tourons descended upon us yesterday. Between the ones who were lost and driving 20 mph below the speed limit, the ones who are in a hurry and driving 20 mph above the speed limit, and the drunk drivers, the wreaks are keeping the sirens going almost constantly. We'll be staying home all weekend. On the up side, we won't have to sit fire watch, thanks to the rains. We ran the robot mop today. Czarny was up on his tower asleep, when the robot crinkled the cat tunnel at the base of his tower. He did a vulture impression, staring down at it for the next few passes. He's followed it around a few times, stopping when he realized his feet were wet. Otherwise, he just ignores it. We got an estimate for a Jeep/Forza towing rig today. Hopefully, it will be installed before we make our next trip in August. Local company, so they don't take the extreme amount of time places like CW do. Made a couple of "trail mix cakes" today for Sunday's gathering. It's actually called Dried Fruit & Nut Loaf, but I didn't have enough specific dried fruit or nuts, so I filled in with trail mix. The M&Ms have made some interesting colors in the cakes, but I'm sure they'll taste just as good as the one from last month. At least I cleared out all the dried fruit and nuts in the pantry. Guess it's time to remove the cakes from the pans now. Later, y'all.

RE: Texas Drivers License Hassle

I get why they need all of that information for a Real ID/Drivers License so I assume that either Texas does not have a non-Real ID drivers license or you did not want one. You assume wrong. Texas has had Real ID for years, and you don't get a choice.

Dried Fruit and Nut Loaf

This is amazing, and so delicious warm, room temperature or cold. Dried Fruit and Nut Loaf 3/4 cup (95 grams) all purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon (1 gram) baking powder 1/4 teaspoon (1 gram) baking soda 1/4 teaspoon (1 gram) kosher salt 3/4 cup (160 grams) firmly packed light brown sugar 3 cups (300 grams) coarsely chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, and/or almonds) 3 cups (400 grams) dried fruits (cherries, cranberries, raisins, apricots, mango, currants, raisins, dates, prunes, and/or figs (pits removed and cut into quarters)) 3 large eggs, at room temperature (150 grams out of shell) 1 teaspoon (4 grams) pure vanilla extract Preheat to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) and place the rack in the center of the oven. Butter, or spray with a vegetable oil spray, a 9 x 5 inch (23 x 12 cm) (8 cup) loaf pan, and line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and brown sugar. Stir in the chopped nuts and dried fruits. Use your fingers to make sure that all the fruits and nuts have been coated with the flour mixture. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment (or with an electric hand mixer), beat the eggs and vanilla extract until light colored and thick (this will take several minutes). Add the egg mixture to the fruit and nut mixture and mix until all the fruit and nut pieces are coated with the batter. Evenly spread into the prepared pan, pressing with the back of a spoon or offset spatula. Bake for about 65 to 80 minutes, or until the batter is golden brown and is just starting to pull away from the sides of the pan. (If you find the loaf over browning, cover with foil.) Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely in the pan. When cool, remove from pan. To store, cover with plastic wrap or foil. This loaf is best after being stored for a couple of days. Will keep for about 2 weeks at room temperature or for a couple of months in the refrigerator. It can also be frozen. Makes one - 9 x 5 inch (20 x 13 cm) loaf.

RE: July 4th Plans?

Family will gather round our swimming pool. We're being lazy, though, and instead of grilling anything, we're providing Schlotzky's sandwiches, chips and dips, a fruit and cheese platter in the shape of the US flag, and a dried fruit and nut loaf for dessert. When it gets too hot outside, we'll retire inside for a few rounds of Mexican Train.
