Oat Milk

I put a little leash on Toto, so he would stay with Tiko and I, and not run off into the bushes. He’s such a smartie, and such an explorer. But I really don’t want to go into the tall grasses to get him. So, anyway, he did great! But as we turned back to go home, Tiko asked if he could take the lease. (He often takes is own leash to walk back home.) So I let him take Cuko’s leash, and at first Toto would resist, and Tiko would turn around and wait, sweet!  And then Toto gave in and realized he could run and they would run together! And they did and it was so cute! They ran all the way back to the house and in the gate, and waited for me. All the time with Tiko holding Toto’s leash in his mouth. Dang,that is one smart dog. And he ‘s got a new job!

Word of the Day – avena – oats

Tip of the Day – You don’t have to strain it, if you don’t mind the thick taste. Add 1/4 c. carob or cacao powder for chocolate milk! Use over my granola (see recipe this blog.)

  1. Avena = oats. Learned that one just recently, along with this one. Carob = Algarobina notice the ‘garob’ in there, easy or what. The Piura province of Peru, not far from Vilca, is the largest producer of Carob in the world I’ve recently learned, too. You just have to love drizzling that over your avena, ensalada, or whatever. I was gonna say yogurt but I’ve recently given that up after three different yoga instructors (including you) told me that they don’t think animal protein is good, not even yogurt. 🙂
