ASSEMBLING A REFRESHING CUCUMBER SANDWICH, RICOTTA GNOCCHI, WORDS OF WISDOM, INSPIRATION

Hello and Howdy this beautiful Monday July 8.

First day of the week and so much opportunity comes with it.
It’s all about recognizing, moving, shaking and finding what’s possible in this week for each of us — individually.
How ’bout that idea?

Presenting Top of the Morning and what I found and collected to share today!

BEGINNING WITH:

EAGLES AND WING SPAN!
Gosh, who knew the wing spans are/can be 6′, 8′ even 9′?
I didn’t!
Next time I see an eagle way up in the air — I’ll recall reading/seeing this piece and my jaw will fall open in awe — knowing the incredible size of the majestic birds’ wing spans!  And I will give an air kiss to the sky in total admiration/respect.

12 FASTEST CATS IN THE WORLD
 Uhhhhh — these cats are faster than fast.
35 m.p.h – 70 m.p.h.  Don’t even think about putting on your running shoes and trying to out run one!  Awe-mazing.

10 HEAVIEST ANIMALS IN THE WORLD
Not one under a ton!
Yeah, I knew all of these “beasts” were probably tipping around a ton on the scale – but not necessarily a ton plus additional tonnage.
Absolutely fascinating!
My biggest shock take-away was the Saltwater Crocodile.
* Gasp *

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL natural WONDERS AROUND THE WORLD
Are, indeed, beautiful wonders.
Even the most talented artists could not create such beauty with strokes of a brush.
These are one-of-a-kind Heaven made masterpieces.

GOTTA LOVE THE E-Z TRICK TO CREATE POUR SPOUTS
For olive oil, vegetable oil, pancake batter, homemade dressings, BBQ sauces!  Go ahead!  think of more.  Brilliant idea.

RECIPES (!)
SUMMERTIME CUCUMBER SANDWICHES
I will totally put some of the add ins (radishes, tomatoes, sprouts) on sandwiches and I will also do some shredded carrots.  Maybe sprinkle in some sunflower seeds.
CABBAGE GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES
I’ve not heard of this combo-type sandwich before – but there is nothing about it that does not make satisfied bite after bite sense!
RICOTTA GNOCCHI WITH MUSHROOM SAUCE
Super quick, easy, light and stellar.
Nagi never disappoints with her recipes.  Clap.Clap!
GREEK WATERMELON SALAD
What a refreshing salad to enjoy all summer long!
Watermelon anything for me however the add-ins for this salad are absolutely winner-winner lunch or dinner!
15 MINUTE AUTHENTIC GAZPACHO SOUP

OMG!
YES!
Refreshing + Healthy + Sip, Sip, Sip
Repeat!
And I’m also thinking on a Saturday or Sunday Brunch sort of morning — a shot of vodka in the serving of Gazpacho — for a “Bloody Mary” like we’ve never had before!
I’m so gonna do it!

SUPER HILARIOUS FLIGHT ATTENDANT
Yes, I’ve posted a clever flight attendant’s dialogue before and it was a funny bone hit!
Here’s another one.
Hat tip to those who make their day-to-day jobs full of joy and laughter for the rest of us!

STICK TO YOUR TASK
Poem read is spot on.
A reminder to us all as we “endeavor to persevere.”
Whether it be a task cleaning around your home, gym life, work life, love life, children’s life.

WE THANK YOU

STICK TO YOUR TASK

Stick to your task until it sticks to you;
Beginners are many and enders are few.
Honor, power, place and praise will come in time to the one who stays.

Stick to your task until it sticks to you;
Bend at it, sweat at it, smile at it too.

For out of the bend and the sweat and the smile
Will come life’s victories after awhile.

      Carol –

      I am still laughing out loud at the flight attendant’s hilarity!

      What a clever, fun attendant to be on a flight with!
      I vote this person deserves a raise! And others like him! ha Seriously though …

      And the recipes, hands down refreshing, and totally makes me wanna whip something up in the kitchen — if they’re like these.

      Thank ya, Daymaker!

    I love BALD EAGLES and the fact that their numbers are increasing. Thanks for all the research, Daymaker, on the unbelievable varieties.

    Now to today’s recipes: Summertime Cucumber sandwich is my favorite. Just this morning I bought Philadelphia Spreadable cream cheese for my toasted bagel and then opened Daymaker and found the bonus recipe with more ways to use such an incredible favor. Of course there is always a 3rd way: grab a spoon and dip in. Yummo!
