I’ve spent the morning lying on the couch wondering what my final vacation day should be like. I’ve decided it should be spent lying on the couch.
Yesterday I cooked. I cooked cheese grits and bacon for breakfast and later made a pone of cornbread and heated some pinto beans and turnip greens for supper. I also made potato salad and a pineapple casserole, but to be honest I don’t care for the pineapple casserole. I’m going to heat some up later and see if it’s any better; if not, it’s trash. I don’t cook, but I can cook.
Kitten said she wanted to learn to cook, but she soon became bored and ran off.
Molly and I are both excited about her staples being removed Tuesday. We’re hoping she gets an all clear for regular walks. We both miss them.
During my vacation I was introduced to Lofi Girl and I have fallen into her rabbit hole. Smooth. Slow. Peaceful. There are albums and playlists on Apple Music and Spotify. There’s also a YouTube channel. Check it out when you need some down time.
Lest you think all I did on my vacation was rest and enjoy myself, I also managed to: 1) learn how to change my dryer’s language from Spanish to English, 2) discover that a Roomba can suck up a soda bottle top, 3) figure out the difference between cornbread and a corn pone and, as previously mentioned, 4) research the origins of gelatin, which, by the way, has been around since ancient Egyptian times.
Now to make it to Christmas, when I have another week off.

Good call on potentially tossing the pineapple casserole. I’m afraid it doesn’t sound appetizing.
The recipe calls for pineapple, cheddar, cracker topping. But I can’t taste the cheddar or even the pineapple. Only sugar. Bleh!
I can’t say hearing the recipe makes that sound better! Sorry. But then, I don’t like pineapple, so it probably doesn’t matter what the recipe says. I hope the other food carried you through!
That’s your best deal for a vacation day, be not busy. The food sounds great! Pineapple and cheddar, though, not so sure. Hope you enjoyed the time!
I’m glad I can finally see your blog again! For some reason I quit receiving notifications from about half the blogs I read. I’m tired of playing tech so I found a workaround. I have to catch up on the newcomers in your menagerie!
Oh yes, you must get to know Kitten. She is a survivor: fearless, curious, and always hungry.
I love anything with corn…and bacon. Sometimes pineapple but your description doesn’t sound inviting.
Nah. Not even as a dessert.
However, Kitten would like to talk to you about bacon.
🙂 🙂 🙂
Jen, it sounds like the perfect balance between rest and accomplishment!
Looks like Kitten makes a great sous-chef. 😉 😉
You vacation sounds lovely. I’m not a pineapple fan so the casserole does not sound good. But, you never know until you try, right?
I tried. That one won’t be tried again.
We’re probably way behind the times but love your new blog theme. Glad you’ve had a great break.
Thanks! And happiest of holiday seasons to you all!!!
You also prompted me to learn what ‘pone’ was. I had heard it all my life. Finally, I actually took the difficult step of Googling it. Turns out it is the same thing as an ashcake.
🤣🤣 Welcome to the Dark Side, my new friend!
All best wishes for the staple removal!
