SUG Spuds & A Overstuffed Horizon Hugger HEOC
Here go once more with the over active imagination of your blog host. As I was preparing dinner I got to thinking about our Solar System and a little rocky world we are just now beginning to understand in harmony with more questions.
The Munchies : SUG Spuds version 2.1 - Twice Stuffed Baked Potatoes. So much can be done with a spud but this is a family favorite. I like to take my baked spuds and carve out the insides and mash them up, mix them up with assorted veggies; in this case frozen mixed peppers and peas par cooked along with mashed steamed winter squash. Seasonings include sea salt, black pepper, paprika, sage, cumin, season salt. All this mixed together with a bit of Greek style yogurt and olive oil. Place the mix back in the spud shell till over flowing & bake till done. The combination's are endless has to how you stuff 'em and season them. A little work but worth it. Tonight's will be served with fresh garlic green beans.
The View: Mercury that little Inner Solar System Planet that speeds about the Sun and dances in our line of sight for precious fleeting moments - sometimes morning, sometimes evening. Never far from the furnace which blasts it environment. This place is indeed twice stuffed & baked and a joy to see in the twilight sky with its orange/tan glow. Baked & stuffed twice over by a impact which most likely renovated the whole place with a super large core and a active magnetic field!
In my years at the eyepiece I have had only a handful good views - just some shades of light and gray, and patches. Go to the Mercury Messenger website for some great pics and info. But the naked eye view of this place is always a treat for me. It is common to see Mercury in conjunction with our moon. Now here's 2 twice baked impact morphed and formed objects side by side in our skies! One near, one far.
Check it out folks!
