Egg baked in avocado

I tried it for the first time today. Avocados have been cheap lately at the groc so I have been buying more. Googled some other ways to use them and found this way to (basically) poach an egg.

I think it is more trouble than it is worth. Tho the flavors do go well together.

I used a slice of bacon under the avocado half, then precooked both to make sure the bacon was properly done and the egg was hitting hot avocado flesh. Scooped out a little flesh too. Cracked the egg right in the avocado. After about 15-20 min I had a mostly cooked egg. Served with toasted baguette to dip in the yolk.

I probably won’t go to the trouble again tho. I like other combinations better.

Hot Buttered Rum

Having one as a night cap tonight. Harvey’s Butter Rum Batter. Made in WA!
Do you have a favorite recipe?

I tried my very first one at Thanksgiving but it was a powdered mix at a bar so I had to look up how to make.

I used homemade vanilla ice cream with brown and powdered sugars and cinnamon.
Mixed these and some butter in a mug and filled with hot water - leave room for the rum! This is my favorite as it is very creamy from the ice cream. Keep a stir stick or spoon nearby as it seperates easy.

MAGA wall toy. Ages 5 and up.

Yes, it appears to be real.
At first I thought it was a Legos toy but thankfully not!

Here’s the link to the CNN story: https://www-m.cnn.com/2018/11/14/us/maga-building-blocks-trnd/index.html?r=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnn.com%2F

WA State Rep Lisa Callan came out to the protest

To thank us and shake hands.
North Bend WA

About 40 protesters in downtown on the main 4 corners area. We were there for an hour. Lots of honks, waves and thumbs up.

Any election watch parties in Western WA?

I am in the Snoqualie valley.
No tv. May go to a bar but doubt there will be many tvs tuned to results.

Stopping in to show off

My I Voted avatar/sticker!

What’s up?

Just filled out my ballot in WA!



Go Dems everywhere!

"He's an idiot!"

CNN’s article on Bob Woodward’s book has me rolling on the floor!

Especially this “quote” from Kelly:

"He's an idiot. It's pointless to try to convince him of anything. He's gone off the rails. We're in crazytown," Kelly is quoted as saying at a staff meeting in his office. "I don't even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I've ever had."

https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/04/politics/bob-woodward-book-donald-trump-fear/index.html

My take? We have been in crazytown since the WH resident stole the election Nov 2016!

And I say to Kelly: Dude, you made that bed. Sleep in it! You just might be an idiot, too...for taking that job.

Fair food!

I visited the Alaska state fair Friday.
Didn’t even get a corn dog because the fair food was so eclectic! I had food that I haven’t seen offered at fairs I have been to in the past. Made the experience all the better.

I found oysters on the half shell from the Prince William Sound (really excellent quality) and Crab cakes too. Sooo freaking good. Also had a salmon quesadilla!! Wth?

Was fabulous!

Favorite Fair food?? Sound off!

Planning a vacay to AK

Will be my first time traveling there.
Totally open about where.
I will be going in August so starting to decide the destination(s).

I am a rockhound so gold panning is a must. Aurora borealis viewing is a must. Also, I would like a train ride.

Hoping there are DUers that will respond with their fav places so I can check out those destinations/suggestions before finalizing plans.

Let me know where to go!!
Thanks in advance.
