Scalloped potatoes and a blurb about my horse

So trying to make scalloped potatoes for the first time in my life tonight.
As usual I look at an online recipe, or a book recipe to get the jist of it... then I have at 'er myself.

I used unpeeled Yukon Gold potatoes and 99% lactose reduced milk (couldn't buy my goatmilk for cheap *sigh*) (Wait what? Goatmilk she says??? YES GOAT MILK! It's good and good FOR you! If I could I'd buy camel milk as that is TRULY hypoallergenic. I'm not lactose intolerant, but am allergic to cow dairy)

4-5 Yukon Gold Potatoes sliced thinly (is there a machine that does this? 'cause like... yeah hard to do man!! I mean like time consuming/nearly chop my fingers off before I ruin my tastebuds!)
thinly sliced 1/4 Yellow onion
1/2 tsp Salt and Pepper
3-4 tbsp Flour
2c Milk of your choice (try NOT to use buttermilk or eggnog or soymilk... because I don't advocate it and refuse to take responsibility for you getting sick because you used them!!)
2tspish garlic powder
cheddar cheese, grated

Grease your pan, preheat your oven to 400 F.
Mix the salt, pepper and flour and garlic.
Place your sliced pots as a single layer, covering the whole bottom. cover with some sliced onion.
Sprinkle some flour mix all over.
Dollop teeny bits of Marg/butter in a few places.
Layer more pots, repeat steps til here
Cover with grated cheese.
Boil your milk, pour all over top, add more grated cheese.
Cover with foil and put in oven for 45mins.
Uncover and cook further 15mins?

We shall see!!

Now onto Merlin. I got him an apple flavoured lickit. TOTALLY didn't take to it... but then it slowly started disappearing (it wasn't hanging, it was left in his feed tub)... So I assumed he was liking it? Either that or another horse was put in his stall frequently.

So I go and get him a MOLASSES lickit... yeah right like he dove to? HELL NO, he let ME eat it!
WTF is up with this "healthy" pony?? He sure looooooooooves his mashes though... Mommy makes em extra special on Christmas and bday. Lucky man!

Sourdough Pizza Toast

Just... how... it.... sounds... DELICIOUS!!! Right? AM I RIGHT?

Take slices of sourdough bread (I'm using Vienna style, normal cut from COBS bakery/bread/aka the place that smells omggood)
Toast the slices, don't do it too dark..
Put on some pizza sauce, pepperoni slices, gr onions/white onion, mushrooms and cheddar and mozza shreds. Oh add some blue cheese too if you want. MMM!

Then toast/broil (what the hell the difference is... don't ask ME! as long as the cheese is melted and it's all heated up!) until well... you wanna eat it (I recommend LONGER than a couple seconds. I mean yeah, I wanna eat it too right away, but jeeze, give it time to cook eh)

ENJOY (haven't had it yet, will try in a few moments!)
