Bait?  Those things fry up well with a nice gravy.
Nah, in my neighborhood the squirrels are generally nice except to each other. Lefty here earns her keep as a working animal too, between a furry little alarm clock and keeping Her Ill-Temperedness amused/entertained/not-badgering-me while I unload the groceries. (Great therapist too... not much of a talker, but she's an exceptional listener for the low hourly rate of literal peanuts. :) )

Besides, how can you do that to a critter that runs straight across the yard to you and does this? :)


Little critter's taken some hard knocks and still keeps a playful attitude... sometimes God picks strange messengers to remind us of the little things.

My older brother told me city squirrels didn't taste as good as the ones in the woods. They probably taste better than the garbage-eating possums that crawl out of the sewers at night, but still not good.

I've been eating all kinds of stuff including snacks the last few days. I discovered jalapeno and cheddar flavor pork rinds and my life will never be the same again. ;)  I had some dark chocolate with crystallized ginger for dessert or a snack earlier today, but now I'm ready for another meal. I have some meals that were ready to eat that I put in the freezer. So I'll grab one of those. I have a couple different kinds of frittatas, but don't remember what the rest of the stuff was. I've been drinking birch beer, ginger beer, and key lime soda the last couple of days too, when I don't want water.

I had a Screamin' Sicilian stromboli for breakfast. I'm going to have another one for lunch.

Breakfast pizza. It's kind of like biscuits and gravy. And biscuits and scrambled eggs. And biscuits and cheese. And more biscuits. I bought it at Walmart last week when I bought sugar cubes to go with my absinthe. The last bottle of absinthe I bought came with an absinthe spoon to rest the sugar cubes on. I have 2 water bottles half full of ice in the freezer, to fill with water for ice water to prepare the absinthe. I'm finally going to do it right. I haven't had any alcohol for a few days, but had a double Old Fashioned to finish off my tiny cans of cocktails, then a Coke and spiced rum. Now I'm having a spiced Coke and spiced rum, and I'm about ready to fall out of my seat. That means it's bedtime after I finish eating and watching TV. ;D

This is how to prepare and serve absinthe. If anyone drips spirits on the sugar cube and sets it on fire, like the guy in the second video, they should be shot in the face with a bazooka. Or seriously reprimanded at the least. The 3rd video shows the louche effect, AKA the ouzo effect - spontaneous emulsification, the phenomenon of formation of a milky oil-in-water emulsion when water is added to ouzo and other anise-flavored liqueurs and spirits, such as pastis, rakı, arak, sambuca and absinthe. Such emulsions occur with only minimal mixing and are highly stable.

Observation and explanation. - First a strongly hydrophobic essential oil such as trans-anethole is dissolved in a water-miscible solvent, such as ethanol, and the ethanol itself forms a solution (a homogenous mixture) with water. If then the concentration of ethanol is lowered by addition of more water the hydrophobic substance precipitates from the solution and forms an emulsion with the remaining ethanol-water-mixture. The tiny droplets of the substance in the emulsion scatter light and thus make the mixture appear white. Oil-in-water emulsions are not normally stable. Oil droplets coalesce until complete phase separation is achieved at macroscopic levels. Addition of a small amount of surfactant or the application of high shear rates (strong stirring) can stabilize the oil droplets. In a water-rich ouzo mixture the droplet coalescence is dramatically slowed without mechanical agitation, dispersing agents, or surfactants. It forms a stable homogeneous fluid dispersion by liquid–liquid nucleation. The size of the droplets when measured by small-angle neutron scattering was found to be on the order of a micron, one millionth of a meter (or one thousandth of a millimeter, 0.001 mm, or about 0.00004 inch). Using dynamic light scattering, Sitnikova et al showed that the droplets of oil in the emulsion grow by Ostwald ripening, and that droplets do not coalesce. The Ostwald ripening rate is observed to diminish with increasing ethanol concentrations until the droplets stabilize in size with an average diameter of 3 microns. Based on thermodynamic considerations of the multi-component mixture, the emulsion derives its stability from trapping between the binodal and spinodal curves in the phase diagram. However, the microscopic mechanisms responsible for the observed slowing of Ostwald ripening rates at increasing ethanol concentrations appear not fully understood.

I just ate a bunch of sweet Maui sty;e onion potato chips with a chunk of Colby-Jack cheese. Now I'm ready to finish off the brownie batter cookie dough ice cream I bought last week, then call it quits for awhile.

Fried chicken for lunch from a little hole-in-the-wall local joint. They put a good scald on the barnyard pimp.

Black forest ham sandwich for supper.

Left over birthday cake from the weekend.

Motor City Pizza Co. 5 cheese bread. A thick, crispy crust topped with mozzarella, parmesan, asiago, romano and cheddar cheeses and parmesan cheese sauce. I bought it and some frozen pizzas at Walmart last week. Until that day I didn't even know where to find pizzas at Walmart. They sell a couple other brands I like too. After 30 years in Flint, Walmart remodeled that store last year, but I've gone there less than once a year on average, even though it's less 2 miles down the road from me.

I remember when Red Baron had those in the freezer case, called Sunrise Singles. Don't forget the gravy for pizza sauce! Carb Hell now, but before I got old and fat and had to go to a carb-managed lifestyle OHHHH so good...

Blueberry muffin while I was babysitting the squirrel pups right after getting off the overnight office blatherfest not long after sunrise, now a Sausage Scramble Bowl and Greek Yogurt Parfait at Chik-fil-A. (Every other CFA I'm on board with the Culture War boycott, but this crew always took very good care of me before that so I've made it known that I'm supporting THEM and the franchise owner, not the loose screws in Atlanta.)

I stopped by my favorite freakin' burger joint and got a Mexicali Burger and Birthday Cake Shake for breakfast. And I got a free glass. They've been in this building in Flint Twp. for 12 years. I remember there was a Italian place called Fazoli's there before that. You could get pasta to go and they would usually give you free breadsticks while you waited. The free breadsticks were worth the price of the dinner. They still have 8 places in Michigan but the closest one to me now is in Lansing, the state capitol. If I get the craving bad enough I'll go there and buy a few dozen garlic butter breadsticks.

I just preheated the toaster oven, and I'm going to put some Margaritaville Calypso Coconut Shrimp in for lunch. I may have Margaritas with my shrimp. Or Mai Tais. I'm running late and getting hungry.

That coconut shrimp ended up being dinner, not a late lunch, because it was the last thing I ate before I went to bed. I had 26 shrimp covered with mango chutney dipping sauce. It was one of the few things with mango in it I liked. To me, most mango flavored stuff tastes like peaches that have something wrong with them, like spoilage.

I just finished the first half of a Motor City Pizza Co. Three Meat Pizza, a thick, crispy crust topped with mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, bacon and sausage. Anyone who likes pepperoni pizza should love pepperoni and sausage, unless they don't like sausage at all, and what isn't better with bacon on it? My toaster oven doesn't get hot enough to get the crust as crispy as it gets in the oven, but I can crank the heat up higher if I set it to Convection instead of Bake. I have a Supreme pizza in the freezer and may experiment on it in Convection mode. I've been afraid to try it until now.

If the pictures of Detroit-style pizza at Wikipedia don't look good to you, you should turn in your pizza lover's card, and eat something else, like quiche instead. Whether it's mozzarella or brick cheese, with the sauce on top or under the toppings and cheese, it's still good. But I'm a cheese junkie and I love caramelized cheese, so I may be biased. You can buy deep steel pans online and make your own Detroit-style deep dish pizza. You can get authentic Detroit pizza pans like these, or cheap ones, or just use a regular baking pan but it won't turn out quite as well. There are LOTS of recipes online.

Casein comprises the majority of protein in dairy milk, and the concentration of casein in cheese is even higher, as it takes around 10 pounds of milk to make 1 pound of cheese. When you digest casein, your body breaks it down into smaller compounds called casomorphins. Casomorphins can cross the blood-brain barrier and attach to dopamine receptors in your brain. This causes your brain to release dopamine, a neurotransmitter related to feelings of pleasure and reward. Essentially, the more casomorphins your brain is exposed to, the more pleasure you experience. This may lead you to crave foods like cheese. I expect we'll soon see, "THIS IS YOUR BRAIN. THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON CHEESE. ANY QUESTIONS?" commercials.
