Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Years…what an exciting time of year this is! I hope you have a chance this season to get closer to those you care about and together create some wonderful memories.
The coffee is brewing and I am anxiously awaiting that first steaming cup. A couple shakes of cinnamon in my java and I am good to go. This is BrewNSpew, the home of useless and useful chatter. Stick around coz this is going to be one of those chats.
We cruised around town the other night – we, meaning my husband Paul, Sally Sue and I. We were one hot looking threesome. I mean for being in the over sixty club, we are anything but your typical retired folk. And Sally Sue, well she also fits the part being 64.
We sat outside at one of the cafes on Canton St. The smoke from the fires was blowing in a different direction, giving us a chance to enjoy the outside. We sipped on our favorite beverages and people watched. I love to people watch, don’t you? It’s one of my favorite pastimes, indeed. Canton St. is quite charming and draws the trendy and well-to-do folks from around town so the entertainment is five star.

My beBee is going strong and getting into the spirit of the holidays. I’m sharing a pic of my beBee T-shirt and a pic of our King Bees, Juan Imaz and Javier beBee.

Now for a little change of pace, did you know that November 22, 2016, is Go For a Ride Day?
“Go For A Ride Day encourages you to get out into the world – hop on your bike, into your car, or simply get your walking boots out of storage and go on a trip. Don’t worry too much about where you’re going, just enjoy the journey. What with all of the cell phones and emails constantly intruding on our lives, we can all agree that everyone needs some time to just get away from it all and feel free every now and then. And what better way to do that then to just go for a ride!”
What is your favorite mode of transportation? Perhaps, back in the day modes like a sleigh or horse-drawn carriage or by horse? Or other types of transportation such as boat, plane, helicopter, car, motorcycle, rollerskates, skateboard. etc. Even a nice walk will get you to where you’re going and you can enjoy nature along the way.
Hey my friend take a break
it’s your life for Pete’s sake
Take it easy and stop a while
Be sure and take time to smile
Look around and take it in
coz this moment will ne’er be again
Hey, don’t forget to join in on Tuesday Chatter, a weekly event. Stop by and leave a link to your blog or a favorite post for others to enjoy at Tuesday Chatter.
Here’s a little surprise for you. I’m not one for creative recipes so I am sharing a yummy recipe from one of my beBee friends, Mamen Delgado.
Here you have the ingredients:
◦ 400 gr (14 oz) of cooked lentils, washed and drained
◦ 1 garlic
◦ 40 gr (1-2 oz) of roasted sesame seeds
◦ 1 tablespoon ground cumin
◦ 30 gr (1-2 oz) of lime or lemon juice
◦ 70 gr (2-3 oz) extra virgin olive oil
◦ Salt to taste
You put all the ingredients at the same time and you can use a blender to make the puree. Or if you use the Thermomix, put all the ingredients in the glass and program 30 seconds at speed 5-10. Here is the link to Mamen’s buzz. Note, the recipe is also in Spanish. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@mamen-delgado/hummus-de-lentejas-lentil-hummus-espanol-english
Enjoy the recipe and enjoy your holidays.
I’m Eugenia and it’s time to put a wrap on this chat. So long from this week’s Tuesday Chatter and have a great week!
Cheers! 🍵 ☕️
