Bowling, Mexico.

I was expecting our cleaner this morning, but for some reason I had it fixed in my mind she was coming at 10, of course she came at 9. I had just got out of the shower and Matt was just about to step in although he, at least, was still dressed. What an idiot. I have no idea why I thought 10. She has been here 3 or 4 times now and always at 9. Worked out OK though.

Later we went bowling, at least we tried bowling, but neither of  us could do anything today, no idea why. Every time I threw a strike I ended up getting 2 points on it. Matt beat me every time although I did win one game by one point LOL.

Our league starts on Sept. 12 but one woman came in during the afternoon thinking the league had started today. Our winter league is always on Monday.

I just heard that dear Donald visited Mexico today (Wednesday) and spoke to their president, and is now softening his stance on Mexico. What a hypocrite.

This sounds like an interesting recipe from Nestlé.

Beef Choufleur

This dish is a fusion of east and west; it combines butter-browned beef with a savory sauce of soy
sauce, garlic and broth.

6 oz beef round steak, 1/3-inch thick
2 tsp butter or margarine
1 1/4 cups cauliflower florets
1/2 small green bell pepper, seeded and cut into ¾-inch pieces
4 tsp soy sauce
1/2 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp cornstarch
1/8 tsp sugar
1/2 cup beef broth or water
1/3 cup sliced green onions
1 cup hot cooked rice

1. Cut meat into ½-inch squares. Brown meat in butter about 5 minutes. Add cauliflower, green pepper, soy sauce and garlic. Stir lightly to coat vegetables with soy sauce. Cover pan and simmer until vegetables are barely tender, about 10 minutes.

2. Blend cornstarch, sugar and broth. Add to meat mixture with green onions. Cook, stirring constantly, until thoroughly heated and sauce is thickened. Serve over beds of fluffy rice.

Servings: 2

Have a great day

  4. He better soften something. Maybe they were discussing how Mexico is going to pay for that wall.

    1. Today we hear he is still yelling about the wall and Mexico paying for it. The Mexican President says they are not paying for any wall. If you end up with Trump as President, Alex, you'd all better move.

  5. Well, I can think of two Mexicans who are still not fans of The Donald.

    BTW, I tried that beef bulgogi recipe, and it came out so well that I'm going to cook it for my parents for Labor Day this upcoming week. So easy to make, and tastes amazing. All credit to you, of course.

  7. Yes I think Trump is back peddling. The Mexican president is quite a looker have you noticed?

    1. I thought he had Pinky but this morning he had changed his tune again. No, didn't see the Mexican President. I was sideways on to the TV so couldn't see the picture properly. I don't watch TV much but Matt does.

  8. Hi Jo,

    It seems the cleaner might of had a bit of a shock. Donald Trump pinatas, all the rage in Mexico.

    I do like that recipe.

    Just wanted to thank you for your support as I try to type while covered in red tape.

    1. Yes, she just might have had. I like the idea of the piñatas!

      You are very welcome Gary, careful with that red tape, can be pretty sticky.
