T Stands for Tuesday With Elizabeth

Greetings!
 
It's freezing again this AM.  Wish what we call summer would get here. Ya know our summer sunny but cold and windy.
Mr. M. and I did take a drive over to the North Jetty yesterday. There is really nothing to do there but when the tide is out and if you bundle up you can walk the area.
 
The Siuslaw (Si-ooos-law) River enters the Pacific Ocean about 250 km (155 miles) south of the Columbia River. The jetties and spurs at the entrance are randomly-placed rubble-mound structures of armor stone weighing from 10,885-to 17,235-kg (12- to 19-ton).[2] The jetties border the river channel on the north and south, and were built originally between 1910–1917, with the north jetty originally 2,957 m (9,700 ft) long, and the south jetty 1,980 m (6,500 ft) in length. There is a lot of history here, not so good for the Natives, but history none the less.
Prior to 1880, the Siuslaw River Valley was inhabited by the Siuslaw people, who used the river for transportation upstream by canoe for salmon runs or to reach hunting areas. The Coast Indian Reservation, including some Siuslaw lands, had been established in 1855, but from 1860 to 1875 the Siuslaw population declined from 129 to 45. Under the 1887 Dawes Act, land allotments were given in trust to the Siuslaws, but few were able to pay the property taxes. The decline in Siuslaw presence in the watershed brought the start of white settlement, and the expectation the river would be used by larger commercial craft to transport resources and goods.

Now to get into the T-Gang I need to show a drink. Today is something I have not had for many years but wanted something warm. Black strap molasses and hot milk with a dab of vanilla. OMG! it is sooooo good. Add some banana, zucchini and carrot cake with it and how can you go wrong?


Be sure to stop by Elizabeth and Bleubeard's blog to see what the rest of the T-Gang are up to.
 
Be Safe Out There And Wear A Mask.

  6. The views are very pretty, but too bad for the natives. Native American history is basically so sad. But your drink and cake sound good. I've never tried molasses, vanilla and milk but it does sound yummy. Hope your's having a nice T day and maybe it warmed up a bit also. Hugs-Erika

  8. I really enjoyed learning about the Siuslaw river and valley. I knew very little about the Columbia, and now I feel you have given me lots of information about the area around it. Thanks for the photos and the information about the Siuslaw.

    Your molasses and milk sound good. Of course, so does that cake. Thanks for sharing your photos of the Siuslaw, your cake, and your warm drink with us for T this Tuesday, dear Nicole.

  14. Your history of the area is really fascinating. I think the same sort of story has been repeated in numerous places, but is mostly forgotten. I have no idea about the native presence before the founding of our town by men and women of European descent.

  15. Googling Siuslaw people, I see their language is extinct. Theirs is a tragic story :( I don't drink milk, hot or cold, but I'd try this. It sounds like a cozy beverage :) Happy T Tuesday

  16. Lovely photos and views- but it does look chilly. Interesting history too- and thank you for adding the correct pronunciation of Siuslaw:) I've not heard of your warm drink - I'd probably like it. Happy belated T day!

  17. Interesting report about the Siuslaw River Valley and the Siuslaw people who were there before white people had begun the settle those lands.

  18. Interesting bit of history.
    That molasses in hot milk sounds very nice. I don't drink milk and we don't have molasses, so I would not be able to taste that, but I wouldn't mind having that with soja milk.
    Belated happy T-Day,
    Hugs,
    Lisca

  21. A sad story! It looks quite wild there! My Mum used to make Molasses milk with honey - not sure whether I would like it now, too sugary for my blood levels!! Belated Happy T Day, Chrisx

  22. Nicole,

    Nice photos! I've never had molasses and milk before. We used to buy black strap molasses years ago. I know it's a good source of iron. I love molasses! I'm sure your bread tastes delicious but my brain can't process veggies and fruit in the same mix. But... I kind of like carrot cake. I guess the sugar and spices help. :)
