Poetry Mondays – Ode To Autumn By John Keats (Happy First Day of Fall!!!)

2

Fall-Nature-HD-Wallpaper-745x419

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,

        Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;

    Conspiring with him how to load and bless

        With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;

    To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,

        And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;

          To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells

        With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,

    And still more, later flowers for the bees,

  Until they think warm days will never cease,

          For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells. 

  Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?

      Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find

  Thee sitting careless on a granary floor,

      Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind;

  Or on a half-reap’d furrow sound asleep,

      Drows’d with the fume of poppies, while thy hook

          Spares the next swath and all its twined flowers:

  And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep

      Steady thy laden head across a brook;

      Or by a cyder-press, with patient look,

          Thou watchest the last oozings hours by hours.

  Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?

      Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,—

  While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,

      And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue;

  Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn

      Among the river sallows, borne aloft

          Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;

  And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;

      Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft

      The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft;

          And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.

Happy Sunday Funday!!! Watermelon Margaritas Recipe

988_2043-1024x1024

1/2 of recipe (about 16 oz.): 138 calories, <0.5g fat, 2mg sodium, 10.5g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 7g sugars, 0.5g protein — PointsPlus® value 5* 



Watermelon makes for a light and versatile flavor for your cocktails. Not only is it sweet and refreshing, its vivid pink color also makes it as pretty as it is tasty. For a perfect mid-afternoon cocktail, combine watermelon and prosecco to make a watermelon Bellini. The original Bellini uses white peaches, but watermelon lightens the drink and gives it a bolder appearance. Puree chunks of seeded watermelon in your blender with a splash of lemon juice to brighten the flavors and a modest quantity of sugar or other sweetener to balance the lemon and bring out the melon’s flavor. Divide the puree into champagne flutes or other tall glasses and fill them up with the rest of your prosecco. For a kid-friendly version, substitute sparkling lemonade or a lemon-lime soda for the wine.

Sonny’s Steak Hoagie

Ingredients

4 (8-inch) hoagie rolls, homemade preferred

2 3/4 ounces blended canola/ olive oil, 60/40 ratio

1/4 teaspoon salt

Provolone cheese

Directions

Optional ingredients: homemade tomato sauce, bell peppers, mushrooms, or your favorite cheese

For the hoagies:

Preheat frying pan over medium-high heat. Cut the hoagie rolls horizontally to open up and make a pocket. Add the blended oil to the pan and stir in the onions. Put the steak on top of onions and add 1/2-ounce of the butter. Cover the pan for 2 1/2 minutes. The meat should have a cooked appearance on top and rare underneath.

Solar Flare causes beautiful Northern Lightshow, but what is an Aurora Borealis? (Science is Awesome)

The sky danced with bands of green, yellow and other colors last night, as the aurora borealis, or northern lights, dazzled viewers in the upper Northern Hemisphere. The light show was sparked by a powerful solar flare that erupted from the sun Wednesday.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Centersays that while Earth will feel the effects of the large coronal mass ejection through Sunday, it won’t bring major communications or electrical problems.

Would you eat this? Burger King in Japan Launches Black Cheeseburger

gothburger2

The black buns? We’ve seen those before. But why, Burger King, why black cheese? Why?

NariNari reports that Burger King Japan is rolling out another “Kuro Burger” (“Black Burger”), with buns made from bamboo charcoal, an onion and garlic sauce made with squid ink, beef patties made with black pepper, and black cheese, which is also apparently made with bamboo charcoal.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen black cheese in my entire life. This could be a first for me.

The ugly burger launches nationwide in Japan on September 19 with two varieties – one with salad and one without, but there’s no plans as of yet to bring them to the UK market.

Japan is at the top of the game when it comes to strange snack foods, bizarre burgers, and robot restaurants.
