Rainbow Ices

Great rainbow ices on a very hot day!

Also, nice lime green sunflower cup.

The only challenge was the long line under the sun and humidity.

Shaving the big ice cube apparently takes some time. ;-)

Presenting Chicken Schnitzel

Wow, look at that chicken schnitzel. 

Right out of the frying pan. 

That is hot and so oh good to eat!  ;-)

Fashion Hot and Cold

Fashion in Washington, D.C. in January winter low temperatures. 

Perhaps trying for "hot" (-like) fashion on a cold day.

I don't think it would go over all that well in an office-setting, especially in this often stodgy town. ;-)

Taste Like Nothing

It's hot in the Florida sun, especially at the beach.

So, I was interested in ordering a cup of Thai bubble tea with Boba.

I ask the lady:
What does it taste like?
Lady answers:
The boba [taste] is like nothing!
I ask:
Can you put in a lot of boba?
She says:
Tea sweet, but no more boba.
I ask:
Why?
She tells me:
Because it's nothing.
I try again:
But if it's nothing, why can't you put in some more?
She says:
It's tapioca, but it taste like nothing and I can only put in a handful.
My final try:
Ok, give me some Thai tea with the boba in it.  
Lady:
Are you sure? It tastes like nothing.
Me: 
Yes, yes, yes.  I love boba with nothing taste, just make sure the tea is plenty sweet!   
Like my dear dad used to say: 

The food here is terrible, and on top of it the portions are too small!  ;-)

@Sligo Creek Park

So lush green at Sligo Creek Park today. 

But also (hazy) hot and humid. 

Lots of bikers on the trail. 

A few squirrels too. 

Nice to walk, think, breath, and be.  ;-)

When You Absolutely Need A/C

When it's Summer, hot, and humid.

And your car's air conditioning isn't working.

What do you do?

Improvise!  ;-)

Dog Days of Summer

Nice way for dogs (or people) to cool off in the hot car in Summer.

Just have to watch for passing cars or bikes, so the snoot doesn't get bumped. 

Do you know where we're going?

No hon, but it's hot as hell today and I'm sort of down in the dumps. 

Just try to enjoy the ride and I'm sure we'll be there soon. 

I'm trying, just let me have a little peace and quiet, please!  ;-)

Wow Fast Cars


Nice red hot convertible Ferrari! 

Man is this slick or what?

I wouldn't leave a car like this parked on the street or with the top open. 

But boy would I enjoy driving this along the palm trees, white sand, and blue ocean beach. 

This is living in style!  :-)

Mr. Golden Sun

There's nothing like the hot sun.

Too bright to look at it. 

It enlightens our whole world.

The warm glowing sun is life.

Cold empty darkness is death. 

Light drives out the dark. 

We need more light in this world. ;-)

Meatballs Piled High

Lots of little meatballs piled high. 

Probably goes well with some nice long spaghetti and saucy sauce. 

Mix it up and serve it steamy hot.

Around the table, everyone dig in. 

Oops, don't spill the sauce on your shirt.

Keep some Tums around for any after effects. 

It's hearty meatball and spaghetti night. ;-)

Meat On A Spit

Nothing like loads of meat roasting on the spit over a fire.

The fat drips and the meat is smoking and juicy hot. 

Is it the animal in us or do we just know good food when we see it?

Schwarma or a BBQ, you can taste it!

And it hits the spot right on like nothing else can.  ;-)

Happy Umbrellas!

These are happy umbrellas. 

Designs and color give them life!  

Not sure how good they are for shielding from the soaking rain. 

But they do add some shade in the blazing hot sun. 

Florida tends to be hot, hot, hot.  ;-)

Sucking It Up

Here we are sucking up leaves in January. 

It almost looks like we're sucking up the whole ground with it!

After the warmest decade on record, we seem to be having the warmest year on record. 

It's 52 degrees out, and we've been reaching up into the high 60's so far this month.

Global warming or the big fires in Australia or action with Iran are heating things up here in Washington, D.C. ;-)

Searching For Gold

This guy had some getup on in Fort Lauderdale on the toasty beach. 

He's in the ocean dressed in a full wetsuit with a mask over his face, a hat on his head, and the headphones over his ears. 

He had a metal detector and wand looking for lost gold in the water right off the beach. 

But didn't see him find a dime the whole time we were there. 

I can't believe these guys can actually find enough jewelry on the beach to make this worth while. 

Back and forth with the wand...searching, searching.  ;-)

Favorite Chocolate Pastries

So these are my favorite chocolate pastries. 

They are liked over-sized or really supersized Rugelach. 

When these come out of the oven, the soft, hot pastry dough interspersed with overflowing, dripping layers of chocolate are unbelievable!

This mound of chocolate pastries is from Mahane Yehuda Market in Jerusalem. 

OMG, I can't wait to visit again and have one (or more) of these--totally lose all self control! LOL  ;-)

Best Chicken Lo Mein (Kosher)

Best Chicken Lo Mein (Kosher too!) that I ever had. 

At China Bistro and Sushi in Hollywood, Florida.

Order the extra chicken for a couple of bucks.

Well worth it!

Steaming hot from the wok. 

And don't forget to make it extra spicy!  ;-)

Swimming In Florida

In lovely Florida.

Hit the swimming pool.

About to do my laps.

I got my gear and ready to rock and roll.

Please G-d, we'll spend the Jewish holiday of Shavuot (commemorating when we got the Torah) together here as a family.

What more can I ask.

Happy and grateful. ;-)

This Is What You Smell

Great sign at the nut stand at Sugarloaf Festival.
"This Is What You Smell!"

Hot cinnamon pecans or almonds. 

Wow, did that smell nice.

I got a tiny bag of the pecans, and when I opened it, the smell and taste that hot cinnamon really took over. 

Were there other smells present as well?

Probably, but I chose to focus on the cinnamon nuts. 

The other smells will have to wait for their special sign and appropriate attention to deal with it. ;-)
