Hot Buttered Rum

Having one as a night cap tonight. Harvey’s Butter Rum Batter. Made in WA!
Do you have a favorite recipe?

I tried my very first one at Thanksgiving but it was a powdered mix at a bar so I had to look up how to make.

I used homemade vanilla ice cream with brown and powdered sugars and cinnamon.
Mixed these and some butter in a mug and filled with hot water - leave room for the rum! This is my favorite as it is very creamy from the ice cream. Keep a stir stick or spoon nearby as it seperates easy.

MAGA wall toy. Ages 5 and up.

Yes, it appears to be real.
At first I thought it was a Legos toy but thankfully not!

Here’s the link to the CNN story: https://www-m.cnn.com/2018/11/14/us/maga-building-blocks-trnd/index.html?r=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnn.com%2F

WA State Rep Lisa Callan came out to the protest

To thank us and shake hands.
North Bend WA

About 40 protesters in downtown on the main 4 corners area. We were there for an hour. Lots of honks, waves and thumbs up.

Any election watch parties in Western WA?

I am in the Snoqualie valley.
No tv. May go to a bar but doubt there will be many tvs tuned to results.

"He's an idiot!"

CNN’s article on Bob Woodward’s book has me rolling on the floor!

Especially this “quote” from Kelly:

"He's an idiot. It's pointless to try to convince him of anything. He's gone off the rails. We're in crazytown," Kelly is quoted as saying at a staff meeting in his office. "I don't even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I've ever had."


My take? We have been in crazytown since the WH resident stole the election Nov 2016!

And I say to Kelly: Dude, you made that bed. Sleep in it! You just might be an idiot, too...for taking that job.

Fair food!

I visited the Alaska state fair Friday.
Didn’t even get a corn dog because the fair food was so eclectic! I had food that I haven’t seen offered at fairs I have been to in the past. Made the experience all the better.

I found oysters on the half shell from the Prince William Sound (really excellent quality) and Crab cakes too. Sooo freaking good. Also had a salmon quesadilla!! Wth?

Was fabulous!

Favorite Fair food?? Sound off!

Planning a vacay to AK

Will be my first time traveling there.
Totally open about where.
I will be going in August so starting to decide the destination(s).

I am a rockhound so gold panning is a must. Aurora borealis viewing is a must. Also, I would like a train ride.

Hoping there are DUers that will respond with their fav places so I can check out those destinations/suggestions before finalizing plans.

Let me know where to go!!
Thanks in advance.
