Currywurst Sauce

I don't want to try the new Edit page, but the old one isn't working. I would have made this a private entry, but that doesn't work. But it's not important, it's just a recipe. So:

January 31 2019, 16:23:04 UTC

I found this recipe when I went exploring:

1 cup of Tomato Ketchup
1/4 teaspoon of Baking Soda (sounds weird but trust me)
4 – 5 teaspoons of Mild Curry Powder
2 teaspoons of Smoked Paprika
1 teaspoon of Onion Powder
1/8 – 1/4 teaspoons of Cayenne Pepper
2 teaspoons of Worcestershire Sauce
4 tablespoons of Beef Broth
2 (or more) tablespoons of Water

Is it relatively close? It might be perfect as an app for my friends.

Ech, there was an incident where a local Catholic school group was making fun of a group of Indians during a demonstration of theirs, singing and drumming. I sure would not recommend putting your worship customs out in front of Catholics.

This first frame doesn't look so bad, but if you watch it it shows what one Youtube commenter said was a "punchable" face, they called them Hitler Youth, and I agree with all of this.

there are no words in English, just the Native American chanting, but when you see what is happening you don't need words. These kids are awful.

Over a foot of snow over the weekend, and it's not too cold, so the streets and shoveled sidewalks are clear. It must be just at freezing. I'm playing Puzzle Pirates, and reading the news online.

Failing to understand cravings

They're not easy to deal with. Julia Ross, author of the new book, [whatever], says that when it comes to eating, the brain's directives are all-powerful. "Unfortunately", she says, "the brain is telling most of us to eat sweets, fried foods, and starchy pastas and breads". Instead she advises not to skip meals and to make better choices to ward off bad choices. "Increase your protein at each meal and include some red meat along with poultry and fish. This kind of dense protein, eaten regularly, is the most effective food for turning off cravings for sweet and starchy 'treats,'' Ross says.

I needed that, eat the right stuff to keep from craving the wrong stuff.

I was going to post a short video of one of the deer that inhabit our backyard, and neighborhood, but I forgot my cord that will connect the tablet with the computer at the library.

Free photo & I think video storage at Livejournal, and I need to empty my tablet of photos/videos, but need that cord!

I have been playing puzzle pirates and trying to get motivated to get more yard work done than just weeding. I had been cutting down weed-trees, but slowed down on that because of the heat and humidity, very unusual temperatures and a lot of rain this summer.

I am watching tiny house videos today.

Eh, not much going on...

Snagged from spikesgirl58:


I barely drink coffee anymore, just decaf. Even then not too often. But for some reason this a.m. I made some caramel flavored decaf and put it in an insulated coffee thermos. It's really an Aladdin brand insulated coffee keeper, but since I was small, the family called it a Thermos after the original insulated coffee bottle.

Lol, it's been a couple hours & I will probably have to warm it up later if I want it. There is a little festival in the "downtown" area today, people selling all kinds of interesting stuff, from raw honey to recycled/reused items like bottle openers made from golf clubs. Soap, baby toys, beard and mustache grooming products. And the sky is beautiful, rain always brings good clouds in this area, fascinating to watch.

This is a small version of the MUCH larger statue being carved from a mountain in South Dakota. Crazy Horse is the man on the horse, a hero of the Lakota Native American tribe. Our church went to the Lakota tribe's reservation in late July/early August this year, we have been doing it for several years.

More information on the statue here.

I missed seeing even the unfinished version due to being sick, wish I could have seen it and hope I get another chance.

It's VERY hot here, in the 90s, so I came to the library to look at livejournal. I got back from the church mission trip a few weeks ago. My phone got wet there so I am without a phone again. That was quick.

I got sick there and was really tired when I came back, still sick for a week then was just TIRED. It is hard to do yard work when it is this hot. But the yard really needs it, so many bushes coming up that just need to be gotten dug up. The worst by far is the poison ivy.

We did have some deer behind the barn for the last few years, but they seem to be gone for a few months. I hope they come back.

{turns out it's only 85 degrees, but 66% humidiity so it feels much hotter!).
