Weekend coffee share 5-14-16

Hi, I am glad you stopped by for coffee. I have a fun exciting adventure planned for us today. Before we go through the star gate we have to get suited up.


A glass helmet will be put over you face so you can breathe. We can’t stay very long on this planet we are going to go visit. It is far, far way from the sun but has the best shooting stars to watch. We go through the star gate and end up on this tiny planet. It is dark but we can see from the flash lights we have. The ground is black, like black iron and it is a little rough to walk on so be careful. Up in the sky there are shooting stars, big and full of color because we are pretty close. I hope they don’t come close to us. I didn’t think about that when I planned this trip.

We saw the stars so we went back home. I didn’t want us getting fried from a star smashing into us. Lets have coffee and I will tell you about my week.

I went to Sam’s club and they had 5 dozen eggs for $4.28. I bought them. When I got home I thought what am I going to do with 5 dozen eggs. I probably won’t eat them all but it was a really good buy at the time. That is 60 eggs so it comes out about 7 cents an egg.

Today I scrambled 4 eggs and mixed in a hand full of cheese and browned up half a tube of sausage. We (hubby and I) mixed the eggs and cheese in the sausage. I got a package of tortillas at the dollar store and heated some tortillas. We put the eggs, cheese and sausage into a tortilla and spooned a spoon of salsa over the eggs. Wrap up the tortilla and have a delicious breakfast burrito. It tasted so good.

The other day I tried making eggs in the mini rice cooker I bought. Wolfgang showed how to do it so I tried it. It did not work out so great for me. The rice cooker stopped cooking when the eggs were half way done. It would not click on for more than a few seconds to finish cooking. I took 3 eggs and put a little bit of cream and cheese in it and whipped it up. I added some bacon. You butter a piece of bread and lay it in the pot butter side down in the rice cooker. Then pour in you eggs. Cover and click on the rice cooker. I think it might do better with 2 eggs only. I put 3 in. After a while I just took it out of the rice cooker and  put it in a pan and cooked it for 10 minutes in the oven. It is not beautiful but it did taste good.


I don’t think I will ever try to make it in the rice cooker again.

I got a new camera lens for my Nikon camera.


The camera came with a 50mm lens. It is a really nice lens but I could not take great far away shots with it. This is a 70-300 mm lens. It does take nice far away shots. I got it on Amazon for $112. It is used but like new condition. It even came in the original box and it looks brand new. Good enough for me to take a picture with once in a while. The forest service was burning an area about 10 miles from me. I got a picture of that.


They burn stuff so that it won’t be so bad if there is a fire. It made a lot of smoke though and the air is all smoky along the mountains now.

I went to the 99 cent store to buy some oranges because you can get a bag of 99 cents. When I was standing in line I saw Rocky Road dark chocolate candy bars. I LOVE marshmallow candy bars. I bought 6 of them because they are so hard to find. When I got home I grabbed one to eat. I noticed on the side that it said mint flavored. I do not like mint flavored chocolate very much and now I have 6 mint flavor candy bars. I ate one and the mint is not too strong but it is not my favorite. Those candy bars are going to last a long time around here.


I do have a couple of chocolate ones though. Those are my favorite. The Hershey’s special dark with almonds are really good too.

I love to make videos, cooking ones and legos ones. I like to draw and paint and make crafts and read blogs. I have a Nikon D80. I also use my new Canon Rebel. I don't really notice not much difference in pictures between the Nikon D80 but I bought for the video use. You can not use Nikon to make a video, it is not on the camera.

    1. Do you know what those little mints that are chocolate you get with your check in restaurants taste like? This chocolate tastes like them. Plus if you were here I would give all the mint ones to you.

  1. The long distance lens is terrific from last year. 🙂 That mountain photograph is beautiful!
    As far as mint candy, my Mom and Dad (he’s gone now) loved Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies and York peppermint patties.
    I like Heath or Skor bars or like you mentioned Hershey’s chocolate almond bars or Dark chocolate bars.
