Stromboli

Stromboli
i mixed yeast, some corn oil, sugar and water. i then added like a couple cups of flour slowly and let it rise for like an hour and a half.

Stromboli
fried up some sweet italiain sausage (minus the casings), peperoni, salami, zucch, olives, mushrooms, some Italian seasonings in a pan. i did not use any butter nor oil.

Stromboli
i sliced the cheese. this failed, i recommend grating your cheese.

Stromboli
i rolled up the filling in the dough. the speckled one was a failed attempt because i rolled the dough too thin. its not a crepe. let the dough rise again and glazed with egg water. i baked at 425 for like 30 minutes or maybe less.

Stromboli
slice

Stromboli
and serve.

Stromboli
yum.

flying meditation

skydive

One of the most insane and most crazy things i have ever done or am likely to do ever.

My good friend Cindy turned 40 and invited me along. Actually she invited mrs. mice who would not have any part of this. It was pretty nerve wracking esp going up in the plane. I was meditating to try and keep cool. I doubt the Buddha ever did freefall from 14,000. Though I’m sure if he had he would have enjoyed it. Very grateful and humbled that I could do this. Going to have to think about it for a while to see if i would ever do it again. It was scary but also super fun. All pictures and video were taken by and property of Skydive Surfcity

Was a great way to celebrate turning 40. Happy B-day Cindy!

Don’t Give Me That Look

Flamingo

I like all three of these versions I post here for you. Really, I like every version of this song i have ever heard. It’s like a sipping on an Island Mai Tai at Forbidden Island. Which by the way I was able to do with my lovely wife this last weekend. Dinner at King of Thai restaurant. Really doesn’t get much better than this for this little cowboy.

The original version or at least the song performed by its co-creator Duke Ellington. Very solid.

The Martin Denny version. So much fun.

The first version I ever heard for the song by Wynton. Perfect.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot

I got some bad news that Twinings had changed my hot beverage of choice, Earl Grey, for a new more citrusy, recipe. In my usual attempt not to pre-judge I remained cautiously pessimistic. I dont like to drink other flavors of tea. I dont like other brands of tea. Though the Harrod’s tea I bought was a close second.

But as it turned out. Twinings only took a few short days to backpedal on their revolution and agree to sell Classic Coke Earl Grey. For this I am grateful. Honestly though I think a lot of pain and negative PR (no such thing?) could have been avoided if they had simply named the new blend anything other than Earl Grey. It could even be something like Citrus Grey. Although that sounds more like a cleaning product.

So all’s well that ends well and other names of Shakespeare plays. I am happy that I can get my 181 year old recipe Earl Grey. I’m sure Patrick Stewart is also breathing a sigh of relief.
