Coyoty makes eggnog overnight oats.

A convenient breakfast for the holidays when you’ve got the eggnog and you don’t want to make breakfast tomorrow.

Mix up 1/3 cup rolled or old-fashioned oats, some fruit or nuts (I used slivered almonds, pecans, and coconut), a pinch of salt, 1/4 cup eggnog, and 1/3 cup milk, sprinkle cinnamon on top, and let it sit in the fridge overnight. The next morning all the liquid will be absorbed and the oats will be soft and sweet from the eggnog, so no sugar needs to be added.

If you don’t have eggnog, you can use other dairy such as milk, kefir, or yogurt. You can also mix in wheat germ, chia seeds, and other healthy fillers.

Coyoty drinks Avery’s Pumpkin Pie Soda.

From Avery’s Beverages in New Britain, CT.

I’ve switch the room lighting to full spectrum LED instead of the yellowish compact fluorescent lighting. I like the improvement.

Thanksgiving Spider

Thanksgiving Spider

My office had a visit from the Thanksgiving Spider Wednesday morning. I brought it outside so it could spread Thanksgiving cheer to everyone else.

It looks like an American grass spider (genus Agelenopsis), with a leg span of about 1.5 inches.

Coyoty makes a Trader Joe’s Thanksgiving dinner.


Baked Trader Joe’s turkey breast tenderloin with Trader Joe’s Brussels sprouts, Trader Joe’s mashed potatoes, Trader Joe’s gravy, and Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning. The only thing not Trader Joe’s is the Saint Lucifer Spice I added to the turkey.

If I had known it would take a couple of overnights to defrost a couple of tenderloins, I’d have had Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving instead of Saturday.

Yes, The Plate is back. Gush away.
