Bonjour, hola and olá! Come in, come in. What kind of coffee would you like this week? Iced? I know, let’s have a Bailey’s Mocha Frappucino! I’ve got plenty of jars about, since I have been using them this week! Come sit on the porch a spell and tell me all about your week! Was it good?
My poison ivy is gone and I have had a fabulous week! I got the next installment of the Cruising Section on the blog done yesterday. It was about Travel Safety, and some new products available to make your like less stressful while on your vacation! I am having so much fun getting ready for our cruise! Everyday I find out something new! This week’s blog post from the Cruise Critics was, “What Not to Do on a Ship’s Balcony!” Number one was, “do not have sex on the balcony railing!” People have fallen off and had to be rescued! How embarrassing!!! How exceedingly drunk would you need to be for that? Number two was, “do not sun bathe naked on your balcony!” You can be seen from the other balconies on the ship and from the land! Well, I guess that pretty much ruins the fun I had planned! Ha Ha!
I did several batches of food this week in my Instant Pot. It is so convenient to use! I made four pint jars of Strawberry-Walnut-Maple-Oatmeal and four pint jars of Blackberry-Walnut-Maple-Oatmeal in two batches in the Instant Pot! I mixed the ingredients of the oatmeal then placed 1/2 cup into the jar, then added the berries and walnuts on the top. Place the jars in the Instant Pot and voila! Done! Afterwards, I put six of the jars in the freezer to save for later when I’m too busy to make breakfasts. Then I got on a chicken spree! I made two pounds of Spicy Mexican Chicken, two pounds of Salsa Verde Chicken, two pounds of Creamy Chicken Bacon Ranch and two pounds of Mexican rice! I put all that in the freezer too. And, I had to try to make hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot too. Exactly two minutes of cooking gets a perfect, easy to peel egg, with no green edge around the yoke! So I am happy with the results I got cooking this week! I got all the recipes from Pinterest! Here is another recipe I thought you might like this week! Find it Here!
I am still practicing French, Spanish and now Portuguese too, on Duolingo. Everyday I spend about twenty minutes or so on it. Spanish and Portuguese are new languages for me, but the words are very similar in French. I just have to remember what language I am in!
The rest of my week was spent on research and I started a new IPhone Photography Class online. I thought if I became more proficient with my IPhone I could use it more on my vacation and not lug my big camera around. My iPhone photos seem to be awesome or ho-hum!!!!! I can’t believe what all I have learned in this course so far and I am only through Module One! So I will keep you posted on that! Well that sums up my week! What all did you do? Let me know!
