How to Butcher a Kangaroo:

NOTE: Kangaroo meat is very lean and high in protein, essential B vitamins,
iron, zinc, omega-3 (an essential nutrient associated with fish),
and omega-6 fatty acids, and is very low in fat (only about 2%)
But the meat also has a high concentration of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)
which has been associated with the build-up of arterial plaque,
and can lead to cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes.
67232285_3182547408484770_8951960546475769856_o

Kangaroo was always eaten by the aboriginal Australians, and the
meaty tail, roasted in a pit of hot embers, is considered a delicacy down under.

Kangaroo Meat is illegal in the state of California!

Fried Rice with Minced Beef

Ingredients:
1/2 pound minced beef
iceberg lettuce, shredded
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 spring onions, finely chopped
2 bowls white rice, preferably leftover and reheated
2 tsp light soy sauce
salt, to taste
sugar, to taste

Marinade:
1 Tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp cornflour
1/4 tsp chicken powder
2/3 tsp sugar
1 tsp water
1/2 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp shaoxing wine
a pinch of pepper

Method:
Marinate minced beef with marinade for 15 minutes.
Heat oil over medium. Cook beef until 80% done. Set aside.
Add some oil again. Stir in beaten egg. Stir constantly until 60% done. Add rice, preferably reheated beforehand as it’d shorter the cooking time. Quickly stir fry evenly. Sprinkle salt and sugar to taste. When the rice is really hot thoroughly, add light soy sauce.
Toss in beef. Continue to cook and combine well. Add shredded lettuce and spring onion until softens. If you’d like to taste the crunchy veggie, then don’t fry too long. Serve hot.

Combination Fried Rice:
First, when it comes to fry rice, we have to use leftover rice because you don’t want any soggy rice. Mixing with all the other vegetables and meat, the rice would be just right, not so dry or soggy.
Second, use as many favorite ingredients as you like. There’s no only one rule to combine ingredients for fried rice. So, be creative and enjoy whatever you like.
Third, the right order is to pan fry eggs, then followed by rice. Many people make the mistake to put in rice first, then pour in whisked eggs. This would make the rice soggy and mushy by absorbing the egg mixture.
Last but not least, don’t stir fry all ingredients with rice in the first place.You have to sauté the meat and vegetables separately. Then combine with the fried rice when it’s nearly done. Simple and easy

Ingredients :
3 bowls leftover rice
1 onion
1 sausage (I used Continental Frankfurt this time)
1 slice ham
6 mushrooms
1/2 cup green peas
3 eggs, whisked

Seasoning:
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
A pinch of black pepper, to your taste
salt, to your taste
sugar, to your taste

Method:
Blanch green peas in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Cut onion, sausage and ham into small cubes. Slice mushrooms.
Heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and sauté onion on medium-heat pan, add in mushrooms until tender. Put in green peas and sauté for 2 minutes. Set aside.
Heat pan on medium heat, sauté sausage and ham until light brown. Dish up.
Clean the pan with a piece of kitchen towel. Add 2 tablespoons of oil, pour in whisked eggs. When the egg mixture is half-way cooked through, add in leftover rice. Stir well for about 10 minutes on high heat. When all rice is evenly heated up and mixed well with the eggs, add in onion, green peas and mix well. At last, add the sausage and ham. While stirring all ingredients together, generously sprinkle salt, sugar and black pepper. Drizzle the soy sauce all around the rice and toss. Taste it by yourself. When you’re satisfied, it’s done.

Tips:
You can use whatever greens you like, for example capsicum, celery. Other meat, like chicken, shrimp, beef or BBQ pork can be good choice too.
If you preheat the chilled leftover rice in a microwave beforehand, it would shorten the cooking time. Save your energy~
Enjoy your fried rice!

Candied Orange Peel
Strips of orange peel cooked in sugar syrup until they are soft and chewy.
They can be sugar coated or dipped in chocolate for extra fun.

Ingredients:
3 Oranges – navel or Valencia
2-1/4 Cups Sugar (granulated)
1-1/8 Water
Sugar for coating and/or Chocolate for dipping (optional)

Directions:
Prep and Blanche the Peel:
Rinse  and clean three navel or Valencia oranges.
Cut the top and bottom off each orange. Score the skin into quarters.
Remove the skin (both peel and pith). Cut into strips about ¼” wide.
(eat or save the peeled oranges for other use)
In a medium saucepan, place the strips of peel and cover with cold water.
Blanch the peels: Bring the water to a boil. When the water boils, drain the water from the orange peel strips. Rinse in fresh cold water. Repeat at least two more times.
Blanching removes any bitter flavor in the orange peel. (TIP: Blanch the peels 4-5 times).
Drain the water and place the peels in a bowl.

Sugar Syrup:
Use the same saucepan, and whisk together 2-¼ cups sugar and 1-⅛ cups water.
Bring the mixture to a simmer over a low heat.
Cook 8-9 minutes at a constant simmer, adjust the heat, and make sure it doesn’t boil.
Add the orange peel. Cook about 45 minutes to 1 hour on medium-low heat, until the white pith is translucent (not white), adjust heat as needed – maintain the simmer, keep from boiling.
Swirl the pan occasionally to make sure that all of the peels get covered with syrup.
DO NOT STIR, this will cause crystallation.
Drain the cooked syrup from the orange peels – (set aside and save for another recipe).
Toss the peels in a bowl of sugar to coat, or dip in melted chocolate and let set. (optional),
Transfer to a drying rack. When they are dry, store them in an airtight container.

Bon Appetit!

It’s an exclamation!

A salutation for someone about to eat!

It means GOOD APPETITE in French.

ENJOY YOUR MEAL!

Listen and learn how to say Bon Appétit correctly:

NOTE: you shouldn’t be wishing guests “Bon Appétit”…..
the French phrase is actually highly impolite.

Merci! (Thank you in French) Bon Appetit!

Dandelions!

Dandelions!
(Genus: Taraxacum, family: Asteraceae)

10991563_1080154505344448_4063870466938531715_o

🌼💛 Hello, I’m a dandelion.
A lot of people call me a weed but I’m a friend and come to help you!
When you see me, remember that I’m the ONLY one who wants and can grow in that particular spot. Because:
Either the soil is too compact / hard / stomped and I want to loosen it for you with my roots.
Or there is too little calcium in the soil – don’t worry, I will replenish that for you with the dying of my leaves.
Or the soil is too acidic. But I will also improve that for you if you give me the chance.
Or a mixture of the above reasons, of course. 😊
I’m here because your soil needs my help so best you let me grow without disturbing me! When everything is fixed, I will disappear again, I promise!
Are you trying to remove me prematurely with my root? However meticulous you are, I will return 2x as strong! Just until your soil is improved.
You can even tell by my growth at which stage my help is at. If my leaves are flat on the ground then I’m far from ready but if they all reach up then I’m already a long way on my way.
Something completely different is that I am 1 of the first bloomers in spring so I will announce spring / summer for you.
During the day when it’s hot, I open my flowers but in the evening when it cools off I close them again quickly. In fact, if it’s not hot enough during the day I won’t open them at all!
My flowers are the first food for insects after hibernation and unlike most other plants, I have pollen AND nectar, not merely one OR the other! And I am generous with them! 🤪😉
My flowers are even delicious for you people by the way, did you know? I used to be called ′′honey (or gold) of the poor′′ because my flowers are so sweet in e.g. jam, sauce or salad! The internet is full of recipes – check them out.
But wait until the end of May or later before you start picking and even then, don’t pick everything yet! The biodiversity and bees will be very grateful!

Dandelions are an herb that is native to Europe.
Dandelions can be found in mild climates
in temperate regions across the Northern Hemisphere.

Taraxacum officinale is the most common species.
The common dandelion is a flowering herbaceous perennial plant.
The scientific study of the genus is known as taraxacology.

The English name comes from the French dent de lion  (lion’s tooth) 
referring to the shape the leaves.

Dandelions have medicinal properties used in traditional herbal medicine 

462408aa8e1dd9bd9b32d2cebbaf4dbd
Nicholas Vachel Lindsay (November 10, 1879 – December 5, 1931)
was an American Poet known as “The Prarie Troubadour”

original-1209272-4

“There’s starting to be a lot more argument that they should be kept because of what they can do for pollinators. Ecologically they are becoming very important as a food source for domestic and wild species of bees, particularly in early spring because they grow so soon. Butterflies and moths also feed on them as a source of sugar, and some species of birds feed on dandelion seeds”
– Ken Willis, University of Alberta Botanic Garden Head of Horticulture

Dandelions are edible and high in nutritional value (vitamins, minerals and fiber).
All parts of the plant (flower, leaf, stem, and roots) can be eaten cooked or raw.
The roots can be dried, ground, and used to make tea.
Dandelions are available as packaged herbal supplements
(capsules, extracts, oils, and tinctures).
Dandelions contain high levels of the antioxidant beta-carotene and polyphenols.

97496212_10217619235212436_7507247502173667328_n

Other Potential Health Benefits from Dandelions:
Reduce cholesterol
Regulate blood sugar
Reduce inflammation
Lower blood pressure
Aid weight loss
Reduce cancer risk
Boost the immune system
Helps relieve mild constipation

Five ways to consume Dandelions:
  1. Dandelion green salad
  2. Sauteed Dandelion greens (cooking eliminates some of the bitter taste) 
  3. Dandelion fritters
  4. Baking with Dandelion petals
  5. Dandelion root tea (and coffee substitute)

Dandelion tea acts as a diuretic and increases urine output.
It has also been used to improve appetite and soothe minor digestive ailments.

Dandelions have low toxicity and are safe for most people.

WARNING! Dandelion can cause an allergic reaction!
People with allergies to other plants like ragweed may also be allergic to Dandelions.
And people with sensitive skin may experience contact dermatitis (a rash or hives).
Other side effects include stomach discomfort, diarrhea, and/or heartburn

WARNING! Dandelions may interact badly with some medications (especially diuretics and antibiotics)! If using prescription medications, consult a healthcare provider before using Dandelions.

Jerusalem Day is May 10th!
Celebrate the “Israeli national holiday commemorating the reunification of Jerusalem and the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City in the aftermath of the June 1967 Six-Day War.” (the holiday actually begins on the evening of May 9th)

6:45am: Sunday Sunday Sunday….. we didn’t sleep.  Insomnia.
We feel sh*tty this morning. We tried to sleep a bunch of times,
but we couldn’t get comfortable, and we couldn’t fall asleep.
Now it’s time to feed the dogs and do the morning stuff.

183621497_10225140098913408_7709998714562238998_n

7:30am: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside again. We got the newspapers.
We drank a little cran-raspberry juice.
No coffee yet, because we still feel sh*tty.
And we’re back in the Home Office with the dogs now.

We took the dogs outside. We made an iced espresso. We surfed the interweb.
We made our Mother’s Day phone calls and now we have the long Sunday ahead.
And it’s a beautiful day outside today. Maybe we’ll swimming in the cement pond:
pool

11:15pm: Recapping Sunday. We didn’t do anything important.
We didn’t even Blog today. But we did call our Mom again.
We took a nap. We took the dogs outside.
We slept some more, because we didn’t sleep last night.
We watched “Bar Rescue” all day on TV. (co-created by one of our ex-clients)
We surfed the interweb and watched youtube vids.
We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside.
We ate two toasted mini-bagels with cream cheese and a small dill pickle.
We fell asleep. We woke up and took the dogs outside.
Now were all chilling’ in the Home Office again.
And we need to eat something, like dinner. Leftovers we don’t want to waste?

On The Menu: Leftover Thai food. 2 BBQ spareribs and some twice fried rice.

On this day in 1924, J. Edgar Hoover was appointed the first Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Washington DC.

7:45am: And it’s Monday again.
We woke up, we took the dogs outside, we fed the dogs, we took the dogs outside.
We got the newspapers. We drank a cup of espresso and ate two toasted croissants.

10:10am: We drank another cup of espresso and took the dogs outside again.
The housekeeper just arrived and she is going to clean. So we are going to hide.
We are chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs now. Happy Monday.


On this day in 1954, Bill Haley and The Comets released
“Rock Around The Clock” (the theme from “Happy Days”) – A VERY BIG HIT IN 1955!
Here they are appearing on the “Ed Sullivan Show” on August 7, 1955:

One, two, three o’clock, four o’clock, rock
Five, six, seven o’clock, eight o’clock, rock
Nine, ten, eleven o’clock, twelve o’clock, rock
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
Put your glad rags on and join me, hon
We’ll have some fun when the clock strikes one
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
When the clock strikes two, three and four
If the band slows down we’ll yell for more
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
When the chimes ring five, six and seven
We’ll be right in seventh heaven
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
When it’s eight, nine, ten, eleven too
I’ll be goin’ strong and so will you
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
When the clock strikes twelve, we’ll cool off then
Start a rockin’ round the clock again
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
(written by Max C. Freedman and James E. Myers)

William John Clifton Haley, Jr. (aka the “Father of Rock and Roll”)
born July 6, 1925, Highland Park, Michigan, US
died February 9, 1981, Harlingen, Texas

Other songs by Bill Haley:
“See You Later, Alligator”, “Shake, Rattle and Roll”,

Also on this day in 1910, Halley’s Comet made its closest approach to Earth!


5:00pm: Hey it’s FIVE O’CLOCK. We waited for the housekeeper to leave.
We took the dogs outside and we spent the afternoon chillin’.  One more week.
We took the dogs outside again. And the day went by relatively quick.
So, we just took the dogs outside again and now we’re back in the Home Office.
We haven’t eaten anything today, except for those croissants,
and we prepped some food and it’s waiting in kitchen. So let’s eat!

5:25pm: We ate. Meatless Monday. Okay.
On The Menu: Two toasted cheese sandwiches on sourdough.
And an iced espresso to drink. Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Eat Cheese.

8:30pm: We got woken up from our nap by our cel phone…. F*CK.
We fell asleep after we fed the dogs. We took them outside before and after.
And then we crashed out for almost an hour an half with the dogs. F*ck.
So we’re almost awake again now.

11:05pm: Same news all day long. Blah blah Blah blah Blah.
We took the dogs outside again. We thought about food.
We didn’t eat. We made an iced mocha. Iced mocha lot.
And we took the dogs outside again. It’s a nice cool night in the SFV.
Maybe tomorrow we’ll go out and do some errands.

edddd
Guess what happened today? HAHAHAHAHA.
We got the mail, and we got some mail from the CA EDD.
We couldn’t get through to EDD on the telephone, so we emailed our contact at our Assemblyman’s office who helped us with our Claim problem (see our previous Blog Posts about Filing for California Unemployment, the Employment Development Department FAILS, and the criminal activity by Bank of America and their Executives). JUST TOTAL FRAUD.
But the Assemblyman’s staffer has a direct contact at EDD and helped us again!
We needed to Backdate our Claim, because we were originally late to file….
and today we received the claim forms for the weeks that needed claiming!
In fact DUPLICATE CLAIM FORMS! And they were weekly, instead of bi-weekly,
so we got FOURTEEN envelopes from EDD today,
with 14 claim forms, 14 cover letters, and 14 return envelopes.
184210541_4741347979225064_1858232460840437283_n
AND THEN WE CERTIFIED ONLINE!!!!! Paperless.
Because the payments get mailed faster.
MORE WASTE. MORE BAD MANAGEMENT! AND JUST PAR FOR THE COURSE.
WE DON’T HAVE THE FUNDS ADDED ELECTRONICALLY
TO THE BofA BANK CARD BECAUSE OF BofA AND OTHER FRAUD!

BIG THANKS TO CA ASSEMBLYMAN JESSE GABRIEL FOR ACTUALLY HELPING HIS CONSTITUENTS! BIG THANKS TO OUR CONTACT IN HIS OFFICE FOR SAVING US!


DO NOT TRAVEL! STAY THE FUCK HOME AND STAY HEALTHY!

NOTE: The CDC made a significant change to their COVID-19 guidelines last week.
Anyone infected with COVID-19 can spread it, even if they DO NOT have symptoms.
COVID-19 is aerosolized and can be transmitted at distances greater than six feet!

COVID-19 IS SPREAD IN THREE MAIN WAYS:

  1. Breathing in air when close to an infected person who is exhaling small droplets and particles that contain the virus. Inhalation of air carrying very small fine droplets and aerosol particles that contain infectious virus. Risk of transmission is greatest within three to six feet of an infectious source, but the virus is aerosolized and can be transmitted at distances greater than six feet (and in any poorly ventilated or enclosed space).
  2. Having these small droplets and particles that contain virus land on the eyes, nose, or mouth, especially through splashes and sprays like a cough or sneeze. Deposition of virus carried in exhaled droplets and particles onto exposed mucous membranes (“splashes and sprays”, such as being coughed on). Risk of transmission is greatest close to an infectious source where these exhaled droplets and particles are concentrated.
  3. Touching eyes, nose, or mouth with contaminated hands that have the virus on them. Touching mucous membranes with hands soiled by exhaled respiratory fluids containing virus or from touching inanimate surfaces contaminated with virus.

Cases of reinfection with COVID-19 have been reported, but are rare​.​
And COVID-19 can spread from people to animals in some situations.
Pet cats and dogs can become infected after close contact with infected people.

And the FDA approved the Pfizer vaccine for children 12-15 years old today.
Now we wait for the CDC to agree and say okay. Get them all vaccinated!

NOTE: We are still writing (and taking our sweet time, too) the Las Vegas, Nevada and Ashland, Oregon Road Trip Blog Posts, but we haven’t posted anything this month, so here’s a quickie for June!
I love to sing-a
About the moon-a and the June-a and the spring-a,
I love to sing-a,
About a sky of blue-a, or a tea for two-a,
Anything-a with a swing-a to an “I love you-a, “
I love to, I love to sing!
Give me a song-a
About a son-a gun that went and done her wrong-a.
But keep it clean-a,
With a cottage small-a by a waterfall-a,
Any sob-a that will throb-a to a bluebird’s call-a,
I love, I love to sing!
I was born a singin’ fool-a,
Lah-de-dah!
Ol’ Major Bowes is gonna spot me,
Got through Yale with boula-boula,
Lah-de-dah!
Old microphone’s got me!
I love to sing-a,
I love to wake up with the south-a in my mouth-a,
And wave a flag-a,
With a cheer for Uncle Sammy and another for my mammy,
I love to sing!

   – “I Love To Singa” by Cab Calloway

May Day is an international public holiday celebrated specifically as “Labour Day” or “International Workers’ Day” around the world.

1-May-Day-2015-Wishes-Ecards-Quotes-Message-SMS-Images-4

In 1904 the International Socialist Conference in Amsterdam, the Sixth Conference of the Second International, called on “all Social Democratic Party organisations and trade unions of all countries to demonstrate energetically on the First of May for the legal establishment of the 8-hour day, for the class demands of the proletariat, and for universal peace.” The date was chosen for “International Workers’ Day” to commemorate the Haymarket affair in Chicago on May 4, 1886. May Day has always been a day for demonstrations by various socialist, communist and anarchist groups since the Second International.

Mayday

May Day is one of the most important holidays in the People’s Republic of China, North Korea, Cuba and Russia. May Day celebrations usually include large parades with displays of military strength.

Passover is the week-long festival that celebrates the emancipation of the Jews from slavery in ancient Egypt. The story of the Exodus is described in the Bible (the Old Testament) in the Book of Exodus. Moses leads the Hebrews out of Egypt, across the Red Sea to Mount Sinai, where he is given the Ten Commandments and they spend 40 years in the desert before reaching the promised land of Canaan.

Tuesday Afternoon in Lithia Park in Ashland Oregon!

Tuesday Afternoon in Lithia Park in Ashland Oregon!

Good Morning Ashland! Tuesday morning after breakfast at the Breadboard we drove over to Lithia Park with the intention of going for a walk. When we got there it was just too cold for this Southern California boy!

We returned later in the day, on a beautiful Tuesday Afternoon, after the sun had come out and the weather had warmed up. We walked from the playground to the picnic area and back and Periscoped the first part of the walk and then saved it to Katch.

Lithia Park is the largest and most central park in Ashland, Oregon. It consists of 93 acres of forested canyonland around Ashland Creek, stretching from the downtown plaza up toward its headwaters near Mount Ashland. Its name originates from the lithium oxide found in the stream water.  The park has two large green area, a bandshell for public musical performances, two duck ponds, a large playground, tennis courts, community buildings and, in winter, an ice skating rink. It also offers picnic areas and miles of hiking trails.  The park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.

“Tuesday, afternoon, I’m just beginning to see,
Now I’m on my way, It doesn’t matter to me,
Chasing the clouds away. Something, calls to me,
The trees are drawing me near, I’ve got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear explain it all with a sigh.
I’m looking at myself, reflections of my mind,
It’s just the kind of day to leave myself behind,
So gently swaying thru the fairy-land of love,
If you’ll just come with me and see the beauty of
Tuesday afternoon. Tuesday afternoon.”
~ The Moody Blues “Tuesday Afternoon”

The Japanese Garden:

Everytime we visit Lithia Park we discover something new! This trip we found the Japanese Garden in the park. It’s very tranquil and intimate with a pond and a small stream with running water. The cherry blossoms were blooming which added even more beauty to the landscaped garden area. There are benches and a small covered pavilion for sitting.

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” ~ Charles Dickens

ROSES! Happy First Day of Spring 2016!

Spring is one of the Four Seasons, following winter and preceding summer.

“A little madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King.”
~Emily Dickinson

In the Northern Hemisphere, the astronomical March Equinox (between March 19 and 21) marks the first day of Spring, and the Northern solstice (around June 21) is the first day of Summer.

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” ~Mark Twain

The United States’ Spring season begins on the day after Presidents’ Day (Tuesday after the 3rd Monday in February) and ends on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend (Friday before the last Monday in May)

“Der spring is sprung
Der grass is riz
I wonder where dem boidies is?”
~Anonymous (from Brooklyn, New York)

When it’s spring in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.

“There is no season such delight can bring,
As summer, autumn, winter and the spring.”
~William Browne (b.1591)

Spring and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth.

“Spring is nature’s way of saying Let’s Party!” ~Robin Williams

“sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love

(all the merry little birds are
flying in the floating in the
very spirits singing in
are winging in the blossoming)

lovers go and lovers come
awandering awondering
but any two are perfectly
alone there’s nobody else alive

(such a sky and such a sun
i never knew and neither did you
and everybody never breathed
quite so many kinds of yes)

not a tree can count his leaves
each herself by opening
but shining who by thousands mean
only one amazing thing

(secretly adoring shyly
tiny winging darting floating
merry in the blossoming
always joyful selves are singing)

sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love” 
― E.E. Cummings
