Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

Recommended Posts

So Mr. Coffee finally bit the dust.  Ordered a Bunn Ninja 12 cup which was shipped overnight with Prime.  Ran just water through last night and again this morning then made a batch of Mayorga.  I like the "saturation" feature and the brew set to "rich" made a very flavorful carafe.  One amusing caution "do not drink from the carafe".

Wha????   the carafe is just a decent size cup.

 

I spose you might wanna let the coffee cool a little, if it's an insulated carafe...

Getting about time to close the house up. Comfortably [too] cool, right now.  About 60`.  Headed to 100`... AHHHHH!!!!!

Finally used up the rest of the Kona beans. Straight Mexican this AM...  It's a peaberry.  May not be "gourmet", but damn good beans for $10/lb.  Champagne on the proverbial "beer budget"

I bet he dinna flush it down the toilet.

 

  wife was in town [Tucson] for a few days. Trying to enjoy her vacation. Brought some toys for kitty. Kitty likes. Now she is even more of a nuisance to throw her toy/s. The kid is here, so, that will help occupy her... both hers.

 

 I suspect the kiddie pool sees water today. Even if the kid doesn't... I prolly will.  Not gonna bother dusting the floors. . Useless if/when I fill the pool.

 

Just about done "roughing out" the dry weeds. Taking it to "clean"... that a whole different story.  Got a pretty good pile of weeds and then there is the brush pile/tree trimmings. Won't do anything to it this year. It will draw quail in. They love a brush pile.

Once you go Bunn, you never go back.

Well you know if your one of them it's easier to spot, so I was suspicious but the sarong thing was kind of a dead giveaway.

have the thermostat set @87` on the A/C in the doghouse...

  ... and it's comfortable.

was too cold in the house.  No idea what the temp is. We really don't want to know.  As long as it is better than outdoors, we're good.

just being out of the sun is good for a 40` difference. 

 

Don't leave tools in the sun.

              or loose change on the car seat.  You could have Jefferson branded to your butt.

uh huh!

  This is an unusual year...  we're way up on precip... half again normal. 5in as opposed to 3in.   And cold [relatively]

They're calling for a chance of rain Monday.  That is strange, too. June is normally a time the weather forecasters can sleep. A version of the hippy dippy weatherman

Sunny [and hot] during the day. Dark [and cool] after sundown.

Don't know how to make that but I've made cornbread with the fajita seasoned pulled pork in it before that was similar. It's just not the heavy moist masa like fantastic tamales.

 

Burritos, tacos, frioles and rice today... with orange, lemon and lime slices to cut the ripe j a p s. Same thing tomorrow here also!

Yes, they take so long I do 4 at a time, put them in quart freezer bags for later since it does freeze well and the grandson loves it.

 

3.5 hours so far, but a long way to go.

I changed my menu, 3/2/1 baby backs on the pellet grill.

 

Cheap tamale casserole: Chile, tamales, chili, cheese and onions and bake it.
