More Baking

Today I baked cassava cake (a Filipino dessert) and dropped off half of this to a friend of ours (properly socially distanced of course)...

Then I made naan bread which we used to make gyros for lunch...

It was a stormy night last night and still a bit stormy today (but we did get our walk in anyway)...

I also called our car insurance company today and asked for a discount/refund because we haven't been driving our car for nearly a month and the lady gave me a 20% refund for April and May which was nice (I think you need to call and ask because it didn't sound like I would have got a discount without asking for it).

We didn't get our stimulus checks yet.  I heard that credit unions put the money in people's accounts today and big banks should follow in the coming days.

We are so so thankful that our brother in law, who was in a pretty bad rollover wreck yesterday, walked away unharmed (the car, however was totaled).

If you want to be on American Idol, they are doing digital auditions now

And this was a good list of self improvement tips.


  1. I have never heard of cassava cake, but it looks good. I will have to go over the list for self-improvement and see what I can find to do.

    1. Cassava cake is really easy to make but when you buy it in a Filipino store, it is really expensive so I always make this for our parties and people love it!

  2. Thank you for your blog. I live all the way across the U.S. in a small suburb in Upstate New York, and it's so nice to see how others live. Many years ago, 1974 to be exact, I visited Las Vegas and was fascinated by your city! At that time, there were no doors on the casinos, open all night! Are they still like that? Pretty exciting for a country girl! Thank you for all the info that you share. :)

    1. Many of the casinos are boarded up right now because they don't have lockable doors on them! Up until the lockdown they never need to close their doors so most don't even having locking doors!
