Well, the fish-in-the-pond experiment ($2.75 for 5 Tilapia) was a no-go. Tiko ate all the 5 fish in the pond.
But, he did catch a rat today! I was looking from above, watering the plants by the yoga perch, and wondering what he was tossing up in the air, noticing it was grey, yikes. And that none of his doggy toys are grey – they’re all orange. I applauded him, and never even considered touching the dang thing. When the workers came, I showed them and they all smiled, and Pablo carried it away and threw it into the fields beyond. I wondered how long it would’ve taken me to even consider touching that thing and carrying it somewhere. Not a benefit of a woman living alone! (And you’re welcome for not showing you the picture.)
Carob Rice MilkI didn’t know there are about 8,000 different types of rice!
- 3/4 c. cooked brown rice that has been soaked before cooking
- 2 1/2 c. water
- 1/4 c. carob
- dash vanilla powder
- 2 grains salt
- options: 3 pitted dates, 3 tsp. coconut syrup or other liquid sweetener, cacao/carob powder, bananas, cinnamon
Soak the rice for 24 hours. Then rinse well. Boil 1 1/2 c. water and add 3/4 c. rice. Simmer for 45 minutes. Blend well with the water. Drink as is, or strain through a very fine strainer for a more milky texture. Then add other ingredients. Chill. Freeze any extra milk into ice cube trays and then collect in freezer bags for quick use in smoothies later.
Word of the Day: raton – rat
Tip of the Day: The workers were right when they advised me to get a dog for protection and varmints – and a cat as well. It sure is worth it!
