After eating dinner with my folks this evening at Taco Time, there was not
much to do (in this small town) except go to store, like all the other people
who go to the store, because there is not
much to do except go to store.
Maybe if I write that again it will be funnier--but I doubt it. haha...
which doesn't always mean I'm funny. But it does mean I'm joking.

My version of Halo-Halo is a yummy dessert, even if it isn't
as delicious as Halo-Halo I ate in the Philippines.
It's been almost four years since I went there, so I'm trying to explore the memories as though they were a mini vacation.
"Remembering my favorite halo-halo or 'mix-mix' doesn't require much money-money, just a lot of imagination-imagination."
Yeah, I just quoted myself. haha

I love this meal... Couscous, Greek yogurt,
and Three Bean Salad.
Thursday afternoon, while I was driving around, I began to think about what would be good for supper. My first thought was to pick up a couple of hamburgers and find out which one tasted better.
I decided instead to eat couscous and the bean salad, which is tangy, due to the vinegar in it, and at the same time is slightly sweet, but not too much. This three bean salad was from a can. It tasted great, though the special three bean salad Mom makes using a recipe is even better.
I bought the foods and Mom helped do some cooking because I had already been quite busy preparing and frying ingredients for the dessert.
The couscous, from a box, only takes five minutes to cook on the stove. I especially liked eating this Greek yogurt with the couscous, which had pine nuts in it, because of the contrast of textures and flavors. There's protein in this meal and that makes me like it all the more.
I felt great after supper, though not too full. And, as I had planned, a little bit later I was ready to eat dessert. Sorry I can't share the dessert. However, I do have a photo which I'll post next time.

Blueberry pancakes are delicious for breakfast,
and dinner too. But today this blueberry pancake
with melted butter and syrup was my afternoon snack...
so I'd have enough energy to watch
another rerun of "The Beverly Hillbillies".
I love funny TV sitcoms like this one!
Caution: Be careful when making and eating
blueberry pancakes because the blueberries could become
very hot. I ate my pancake at the table, then went back
to watching the TV show.

A taste of paradise!
One of my favorite foods is cheesecake. On my birthday or around that time in January, I like to eat cheesecake. Yes, I love cheesecake! Those of you who love cheesecake know what I mean -- and how delicious it is!! Just make sure you don't eat too much.
