What Did That OFM Just Say?

Nope. You don’t get poached from drinking fermented peach juice.    

Now where did that come from? The empty head cavity on The OFM’s body that is supposed to contain a brain is where.

It was getting to be lunch time this very busy morning and the pork chops were waiting in the refrigerator to become OFM food. So he cut them into bite size chunks and poached them in a pot. Poaching is cooking in scant water similar to simmering but less water. We think it comes out very close to steaming meat in a steamer.

Any way the meat was finished cooking. A Package of Knorr Mexican Rice mix was dumped onto the pork chops  and water added to the pot per the Knorr instructions. Then when the Knorr mix and pork chop pieces were finished cooking they were divided into four containers for storage in the refrigerator.

Then supper tonight was part of one of the containers of food.  GOOD GRIEF that is some great eating. And we have at least four more meals of that mix to go yet. Yummity Yum Yum.

Some painting was done on a cactus flower in the cactus coloring book. This painting is watercolor pencils and is a new to the OFM type of effort.  Here is a close up of one of the flowers after three layers of color have been applied.



We have no idea how many more layers will be required.  If today’s effort is any indication we are a long trip from the end. The two layers today just on the red leaves took the OFM just over two hours. Between layers the paint must dry and the Texas Gulf Coast is not a dry location.

The watercolor pencils are Prismacolor brand and top rated in many reviews. The OFM definitely likes the way they handle very well. Thankfully using the waterbrush for painting takes a lot less water than regular brushes.

Yes a little fishing got done with a lure the OFM is modifying to work in a way he prefers.  A report on this fun project will come when the effort is finished.

It was a very busy day ALL day it seemed and the OFM is pooped. But it was another great day of trying to have tooooo much fun.
