Life In The Times of Coronavirus

I heard my daughter laughing from another room.


A real hearty bellyaching laugh. 


Then she came in and shared a WhatsApp post from one of her friends which said:

I ate 11 times and took 5 naps and I woke up and it’s still today!

Then I couldn’t stop laughing. 😉

Cannibals Love To Have You For Dinner

I love this saying from one of my colleagues in the National Security field about the Middle East:

If you aren’t invited for dinner, you’re likely on the menu!

Oh how true it is. 

It reminds me of a mother-in-law joke my father used to tell about this guy telling his friend:

Yeah, we had my mother-in-law for dinner. And boy was she good!

Anyway, no one can tell a joke like he did. 

Last thing you want to be is on the menu. 😉

Donuts With Syringe

So I never actually saw donuts being sold with the syringe. 


I get that they use the syringe to put the custard, jelly, and other fillings inside.


But leaving the syringe hanging out of the donuts like that conjures up images of addicts and junkies.


DESPITE that, these incredibly rich and overflowing donuts with gobs of toppings were some of the finest I’ve ever seen. 


Takes more than a good dose of willpower to resist and not become an addict of these carbohydrate powerhouses.

Happy Hanukah Trader Joe’s Style

Trader Joe’s has the best food shopping experience, hands down. 

They also have the best edible and good tasting fresh, healthy food. 

On top of it, they have a nice gift card for a Happy Hanukah!

I vote that we replace all the other crummy supermarkets with Trader Joes instead. 😉

Salad and Falafel

Continuing the healthy eating trend.

This was delicious salad and falafel with tzatziki sauce and Italian dressing. 

It was so fresh and good.

Honestly, I wanted to eat more of this. 

Who needs all the junk foods. 

This looks good, tastes good, and is good for you!  😉

Birds Dropping In For Lunch

These birds decided to swoop in for some lunch. 

It was funny to see the people go scrambling from the table.

The birds were completely unabashed and took their time over the chow. 

One couple in the corner had ordered this truly enormous meal (don’t worry, I was good and ate only the salad).

Each of them had a full lunch plate PLUS in the center of their table was “The Volcano” of nachos, cheese, chili, guacamole,  sour cream, and jalapenos. 

That was certainly no bird food with The Volcano punching in at 3,500 calories!

I have no idea how any two people could possibly eat that much food.

Probably good that the birds decided to drop in.  😉
