-If you do want sauce thicker then just repeat step #8.
IMPORTANT! Do not allow sauce mixture to sit without stirring cuz it will burn!!!
10.) When sauce is at the consistency/thickness you desire THEN mix Scallops into sauce, completely covering them in the sauce.

Burning Rivers of Shadows and Tears

Burning Rivers of Shadows and Tears: by Tiny Butler copyright 1992

It sad it seems
We can't hold on to our dreams
Burning rivers of shadows and tears
Have haunted me for a thousand years

I appeared invisible
I tried to be invincible
Hide behind your hidin' hurt
No one gets what they deserve

Hallucination reality
Shrouded in this mystery
Rags to riches won't set you free
'Cause burning rivers still scorches me

We're both lost in indecision
I felt the pain, you stuck the knife
We're both chained to our affections
Tortured….dungeon state of mind

I appeared invisible
I tried to be invincible
Hide behind your hidin' hurt
No one gets what they deserve

We're both lost in indecision
I felt the pain, you stuck the knife
We're both chained to our affections
Tortured, dungeon state of mind

It sad it seems
We can't hold on to our dreams
Burning rivers of shadows and tears
Have haunted me for a thousand years
Burning Rivers shadows and tears
Have haunted me for a thousand, thousand years

Lies down so softly
Lies right on top me
Lies smothered with gravy
To feed me
More lies
Lying down to
Fake love to
More lies
Can you see
The flies and maggots
… eating…breeding...more
All the lies
That Ferment
That Rot
Guess What
And guess what
I've got
More lies
For you to
Tell and lie softly
Upon me

Steel Cut Oats recipe by Reykjaviky

I have read so many recipes that say you have to soak steel cuts over night or have to boil them for 20-45 minutes. That's great if you want the same ol' mushy, bland oats. To taste oats like you never tasted them before, try this way. This "cooking" method truly keeps the oats chewy, yummy and nutty tasting. This ain't ya granny's or ya mamma's oatmeal! Not only very delicious, it ALSO keeps you feeling full for hours. I have lost weight eating this for breakfast and my cholesterol/triglyceride levels have dropped to better than normal:

1.) Bring a medium pot of water to a rolling boil
2.) Dump enough (organic) steel cut oats in to where there is about 1 1/2 inches of water above them.
3.) IMMEDIATELY REMOVE them off the stove
4.) Salt to taste
5.) Set aside for about 10 min. or more, whatever you choose
6.) You can add any organic fruit, ground organic flax seed, organic walnuts, whatever...

***If there is still too much water, just drain it. If there isn't enough, add's just oats, NOT as precise as a rice recipe!***

Let the rest cool, store in any container you wish in the fridge. It's great hot or cold. (*if you add a touch of salt and organic extra virgin olive oil INSTEAD of butter and sugar and butter, you have your very own inexpensive recipe for a heart healthy breakfast that will keep you full for hours!)

BP lies again and again

I am so sick of BP lying over and over. I am sick of the administration sitting on their hands waiting for BP to do something. BP doesn't give a flying F*** about anything but saving money and making money, PERIOD. That has been blatently obvious for decades and now the earth and all it's inhabitants are paying for it.

This is our planets FOOD CHAIN for God's sake. This is more important than any war, more important than any politics. Once we lose our food chain...which by the way WE ARE PART OF...duh!!!'s over folks.

Every millionaire, billionaire, environmentalist, average person just trying to make a living and survive should be raising hell. F*** Dancing with the Stars, Top Model, The Kardashians, Entertainment Tonight, Shrek, Toy Story, and all that other celebrity mind numbing bull crap.

This is our planet, this is our survival. This is it!!! I don't care if you live in a huge mansion, an apartment, a trailer park or under a bridge, this is going to affect ALL of US very soon and FOREVER. We all need to be emailing, calling, writing our government and DEMAND they get on top of this 24/7 NOW!!! Stop waiting for BP to do something, they're greedy idiots.

Sorry, just very sad and upset that I am witnessing the world ending because of a stupid, completely preventable off shore oil drill catastrophe. I always thought it would be nuclear war or something like that.

Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill - the end of the world?!?!!!

I really think this is the end. I used to think the '2012' end of the world predictions were just another bogus paranoid theory. Well, I changed my mind since the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The never ending, non-stop oil spill. Sorry, but I have tried to be optimistic... but everyday the news gets worse. First it was 5 times more oil spewing into the Gulf of Mexico, then it was 10. NOW it is 100 times more than "they" had admitted to. This is mass extinction on hyper drive. To hell with the 'tourist industry' economy, this is the real deal here. This is IT people. When the ocean dies, WE DIE! Water is life and when that oil spreads around the tip of Florida and into the Atlantic....That's all folks!!! It's over, period. I hope all those vulgarly rich oil barons throughout the world are happy because no matter how much money they have made all these years from raping and polluting the earth, it won't help them when there is no water, no plants, no animals. I hope those bastards choke on their money. We live on a precious wonderful planet and they just shit all over it. All they cared about is money and power. Well guess what, life and loving the other life that lives on this planet is more important. Even dogs don't shit where they eat or sleep!!! We are suppose to be the stewards of this blessed planet, but the few greedy powerful assholes just ruined it for ALL of us. ALL of us.

Reykjaviky's Sweet Potato Spinach Omelet

Reykjaviky's Sweet Potato Bacon Spinach Omelet


3 jumbo eggs
dash poultry seasoning
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
2 strips apple wood smoked bacon
1/2 small sweet potato, thinly sliced/skin on
***butter, olive oil or canola to saute with, use whatever amount you are comfortable with. I only use a couple of tablespoons of canola oil :) ***
1/2 large sweet Vidalia onion, finely chopped
1 cup fresh baby spinach

In a large bowl: Mix 3 jumbo eggs, a dash of poultry seasoning, s&p to taste. Set aside.

Cook 2 strips of thick apple wood smoked bacon, drain, crumble. Add to egg mixture.

1 small sweet potato. (about the length of a 12oz. soda can) Scrub clean and leave skin on! Cut HALF of the sweet potato into very thin slices - like you're making thick potato chips. Then Quarter those slices and quickly fry in canola oil.

*note: They won't get crisp like regular potatoes and burn easily. You have to keep an eye on them. When done drain and set aside.

Finely chop half of a large sweet Vidalia onion, saute (in butter,olive oil or canola oil) with a dash of salt till almost translucent.

Leave onions in skillet and then Add a cup of fresh baby spinach, stir till the spinach is just about half wilted.

THEN add the fried sweet potatoes and egg/bacon mixture to the onion mixture.

Mix all ingredients in the pan and let cook on Med. heat.

Stir a little to let the uncooked part on top drain to the bottom of you would do any omelet.

Keep checking the bottom of the omelet to make sure it is not burning, when you see it look almost totally cooked then gently fold half of the omelet over and again gently press down on the now folded over omelet with your spatula to squish out any runny egg and scooch any runny egg parts back up to the flat side of the omelet so the omelet keeps looking like a half moon..... (and hey, if it falls apart, so what! Don't worry about it. It makes a great scrambled egg dish too!)

Heck....It's just eggs, it'll taste great! I like to eat it as is, of course my husband dumps ketchup all over it. Again, it doesn't's just eggs :) But you'll love'em for a change in pace over regular eggs or regular omeletts!

RECIPE - Reykjaviky's Chinese Restaurant Style Sesame Chicken SAUCE

I originally posted this my/original recipe several years ago on Copykat, Allrecipe and Recipe Exchange sites under the name Reykjaviky. It seemed to become very popular as that I am seeing it all over the Internet now. So I am re-posting it on my personal blog. It is absolutely the exact, yummiest recipe for Chinese restaurant style sesame chicken SAUCE. This is the SAUCE recipe only. Here goes:

It took me about 2 weeks but..FINALLY! I finally created the correct homemade recipe for Chinese Restaurant Style Sesame Chicken SAUCE! I was told by a man that owned a Chinese restaurant that it was too complicated and took too long to make it for anyone to copy it.

That is all I needed to hear!!!

I went home and spent 2 weeks perfecting it. HA!!! No Big Deal!! I know how to cook and I knew I could figure it out. This was several years ago, way before you could find every single thing or recipe you needed to know on the Internet. I made this recipe on my own. Under the name Reykjaviky.

Anywho…..The most important part is that there is absolutely NO Chinese 5 spice, NO honey AND very, very littler vinegar. MUST use DARK SOY SAUCE. A few of these ingredients might be tricky to find but it is well worth the quality SESAME OIL, DARK SOY SAUCE and CHILE PASTE.

Trust me. this is the real deal. All the other recipes I tried ended up tasting like sweet and sour sauce or honey dip sauce.


1\2 cup water

1 cup chicken broth (I prefer organic)

2 Tablespoons white vinegar (or rice vinegar)

1/4 cup  cornstarch

1 cup sugar

2 Tablespoons DARK Soy Sauce

2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil (NOT light sesame oil. Use regular or toasted)

1 teaspoon Chili Paste *taste test if you want more...this stuff is HOT* (found in oriental/Asian section of grocery store. Or if you are lucky enough to live where there are 'international' grocers, you can easily find this and the other ingredients there.

1 clove of garlic (finely minced)

Toasted sesame seeds (optional) to sprinkle on top of the chicken when plated.

Mix all ingredients...Stir CONTINUOUSLY while bringing to a gently boil...the cornstarch gets very sticky otherwise... you can fry your own chicken...white or dark meat...I prefer dark.

Or just bring home some fried chicken from the store or from a fast food place and dip it in the sauce. (less messy, much easier and just as yummy).

You can also make any type of rice and/or steam some broccoli if you really wanna make a big meal of it and more like Chinese take out. Just put the chicken on top of the rice and broccoli and drizzle the sauce. OMG, you will LOVE IT!!! p.s.To spice up a relationship... you can also spread this on your favorite persons favorite part and lick it off...slowly that is ;)

I Love the Blues

I love to listen to the blues. But he makes fun of me. He is a music ‘snob’. He calls the blues ‘crap music’, he calls it bullshit and calls me an idiot and everyone an idiot if they like the blues, that it is all the same. That is not real music, etc.

But I always disagree with him (at least in my mind, I don’t say anything anymore, so as to not start another argument where he puts me down and calls me an “idiot that has no taste”) because no mater what type of music you love I truly believe it is personal and if it moves you or you love to listen to it for whatever reason… then that type of music has done it’s job. There is nothing wrong with that. It doesn’t make you an idiot.

I actually love all kinds of music, including the music he loves. I never put down his taste in music. He loves classical music, The Carpenters, Camel, Pink Floyd, The Strawbs, Moody Blues, No Doubt, The Cure….many more AND I love all that type of music too. I really love them, but I also love to listen to bluegrass, heavy metal, some hair band songs, bubble gum pop music, country, classical, hell I loves me some show tunes too.

Love and memories

I love him but it is getting harder and harder to remember why when he keeps killing the memory.

My Man

He is a good man inside but the outside is taking over.

I Still Have My Dreams

I still have my dreams, even though they can be very strange
And life can be strange, when my dreams seem like reality
So when I look in the mirror and see what is real
I find that both are the same

The Rip in My Heart

when i first met met you there was a hole in my heart
then we fell in love and the whole was full and warm
now you ripped it totally and completely to shreds
not even enough left to have a hole

What About Us

Remember when it was us and we thought about it
I do

Dreaming brings back memories of us
How it used to be

Now I wake up and see reality
But waking up is still a new day

So my reality is still mine anyway
I still believe in us

Me, myself and I

My Mid Life Isis

Reality is sweeter when you keep living your dreams

Pink Eye

First of all, I ain’t gay and not a huge Pink fan at all. But here goes….if it rambles please remember I am trying to recall a dream and you know how dreams go….thanks :)

I had this wild dream where I was in a cirque berserk like show with Pink and Pink picked me as her new main dance partner. Her outfit was so fucking cool. She was almost naked but had strips of black suede all over her body (barely) and Mohawk looking mask type thing on her head and of course a black suede g-string. The head dress reminded me of an 18th century costume mask. Again, it looked like a black suede Mohawk with big thick rubbery bouncy prongs. The entire head dress covered her head, forehead, nose and cheeks but you could see her eyes, mouth and jaw. (remember the movie Amadeus where Mozart, his wife and his dad went to a costume party? Like his wife’s big ol’ swan mask) Then she barely had a very structured Madonna like push up bra that also had suede straps hanging from her shoulders, almost tattered looking. Her belly button had a diamond in it. The suede g-string peeked out of suede skin tight bell bottoms and the bells at the bottom were like 1969 big ass bells. She had on 6 inch black suede “come fuck me pumps”, ya know, like strippers and drag queens wear.

There was a massive stage show where the other dancers would prance around and then a giant square frame with teeny tressles or ladders on the top and sides of it would slowly be lowered down from the 200 foot ceiling of the performance hall down to the stage. The square frame was decorated with flowing silk of pastel colors and glittery fabric blowing as if there was mild breeze. Pink was at the top of the square and all her dancers were climbing down beside as Pink stayed in her place till the square gently landed on the stage. Then I came out from backstage, I don’t remember what I looked like but I felt very sexy, young and desirable. Pink stopped singing for a second and put all of her attention on me, starting singing to me and dancing with me.

She took my hand and we both got on the bottom rung of square thing. Right then it started slowly rising up with Pink, me and the dancers. She still was totally focused on me and she was singing and she and the dancers were still crawling all around the square thing. I stayed still but when we got to the ceiling Pink took me backstage and dressed me in a gorgeous, sexy, skimpy, semi-S&M costume the led me back to the square thing that was hanging on the ceiling and I got on it with her.

All the other dancers were there too and the square thing slowly started down again toward the stage with Pink at the bottom of the square thing while now me and the dancers were writhing and climbing down the rungs of the ladders all around square thing. I hung on tight and I danced on that square thing better than her dancers and when the square thing got to the bottom where the stage was Pink gave me a passionate hug and a walked away because she wanted to take a bath. Me and the dancers stood there as if ‘is that it?’ then Pink walk back in, took off all of her mask and all her clothes except for a rhinestone thong and announced very matter of factly, “I wanna fuck, anybody interested?”. Immediately a really young handsome guy ran over to her and she grabbed his hand and stormed off the stage with him trapsing behind her. Me and the dancers could hear them moaning and their fuck noises. I walked into the place where they were ‘doing it’ and the guy was going down on her and she was having massive multiple orgasms. When she was done, she told him to get lost and kicked him out and then she came over to me and told me she loved me and asked me to lay down with her. So I did and we snuggled, spooned and went to sleep.
