Moroccan Roti John ~ Hashtag Believe

No doubt you’ve been wondering what Sister Madly does all day. It’s true that she doesn’t have much of an online presence, but that is for the benefit of the species as envy has been known to destroy nations. Still, that does little to dissuade the more curious amongst you, and as curiosity has been responsible for killing many a cat, Sister Madly has graciously provided a snapshot narrative of her quaint yet fashionable everyday life:

Gorgeous Sunrise! #Nature

Morning Devotionals w/cuppa sour cream. #SpiritualWalk

Cuteness overload! #Pets

DMV Heart Hands! #BestDayEver

Molecular Gastronomy at the hottest new bistro, Chomp. #YOLO

OMG so delish! #CleanEating


Woo-Hoo! My Amazon Prime has arrived! #Blessed

What?! He knows he’s not supposed to play in the wok! #FollowYourBliss

Or wear my jewelry- why is he being so naughty? #Fashionista

A High-Society Girl at   #KnowYourWorth

Gorgeous Sunset! #Beauty

Well, look who’s sulking! #Introvert

Looking forward to a long soak in my favorite pothole. #HotMess

Unwinding with a glass of bay leaf water. #Believe

Now you may think that Sister Madly romanticized her daily routine, but truth be told life in the Madliverse is every bit as glamorous as depicted. While modesty may play a small factor in why she doesn’t engage in social media- and a most modest Moppet she is- Sister Madly just doesn’t have the patience to deal with all the haters who would criticize her spiritual walk or report her to the Humane Society whenever she makes Pet Dragon Fruit into a popsicle. The burial ground just isn’t big enough.

    • You know how Dragon Fruits are… a very temperamental breed.

      Sounds like you could use a long soak in a pothole… do you have any of those where you come from? ;c)

      • I live in Michigan which you know very well… we exceed the national average for soakholes (potholes) 🙂

        • Well then, get yourself some bubbles, a rubber ducky or two… it’s amazing how relaxing a pothole bath can be… I’m sure the weather is most agreeable in Michigan this time of year.

      • Weather is 12 Degrees feels like -2 … Soakholes are all frozen!

    Great post. Great day. To hell with social media. I always say those qualified to run a country are smart enough not to take the job. Perhaps it’s similar: Those with a voice worth hearing, smart enough to avoid social media.

    Impressive hand hearting skills
    Immersive mind bending thrills
    10/10, this is dope!
    Animated dragon fruit
    Expounding frutti truth
    Onion, garlic and soap
    Froth forth and churn
    A roti john after
    Is going to burn burn burn

  5. your dragon fruit reminds me of a pomegranate with whom i once hung out ~ she was very sweet

    • Hmm, a pomegranate… perhaps that is what Dragon Fruit needs, a companion…

      • Most likely. If he had a companion he no-doubt would stop wearing your jewelry. Why not take him with you next time you go to the DMV. I wouldn’t be surprised if you found in the parking lot there something like a pick-up with a load of walnuts or something like that in the back. For Dragon Fruit. The walnuts would be for Dragon Fruit. Companionship. You know…

  6. I think I would consider myself as smart as Sister Madly if I understood anything previous to the recipe. (Which looks great, by the way.) But that may be hubris. Is hubris.

    An amazing glimpse into the world of Sister Madly. Thank you for sharing this, but one burning question is inspired: how was the molecular gastronomy?

    I cannot possibly think why….. that must have been some strong rosemary!

    • Rosemary is for remembrance, which allowed me to recall- albeit briefly- all the lyrics to Bowie’s greatest hits.

      I was also able to remember where I parked my car- again, briefly.

    Well thank goodness for that! Hmm, if it worked briefly, then perhaps you should carry the smell of it with you to remember more things? That and think what stews you can have….. 🤔

    • That might cause one to remember things that never happened… which could be a lot of fun, actually.

      May have to try that.
