I'm not concerned about tarantulas down south, they're pretty harmless. A friend in Mexico has to regularily remove them from her house with her dedicated tongs. She discovered one on her pillow. After she woke up.
No, I didn't have my tongs but I had a good can of spray. Don't want them around! We don't have the recluses here, but I've heard about them - they do a lot more bodily damage than widows. I'm with ya on the tarantulas - they look scary but are generally very docile creatures. We have lots of them around here out in the desert. Not that I want one for a pet.

My corn bread from last night. It was really good. I realized I had no corn meal, so I used masa harina - the finely ground corn used for making tortillas. And I didn't use any wheat flour. I added about a cup of grilled corn kernels and some chopped tomato (I had been planning to use that mixture to make a salad, but didn't get to it). I love the color - I'm going to do that again.

I can't share the method - sorry. It was given to me and I was sworn to secrecy

Looks good GG. I'll bet it's healthier with masa too. Masa is nixtamelized, so the niacin is more available.

Thanks! It tasted more corny lol than corn bread I've made with flour. A little honey butter and it's perfect ☺

In case you missed the Blood Moon eclipse last night. We had too much cloud cover and ambient light to see much.

My grandson Tyler at his second game of the season yesterday. He was as full of determination as his little 5 year old self could muster up, and hit a home run!

He had already started to swing the bat, so his arms look a little off...
