~ Football Coach of the Year ~ Crayfish or Shrimp Etoffee ~

Good  41º morning. OMG, like a summer day!!!!

LOL, sure beats the 24º from yesterday morning.               

Historically this date.....
1958 – A hydrogen bomb known as the Tybee Bomb is lost by the US Air Force off the coast of Savannah, Georgia, never to be recovered.
2008 – A major tornado outbreak across the Southern United States leaves 57 dead, the most since the May 31, 1985 outbreak that killed 88.

And births this date include...
1848 – Belle Starr, American outlaw (d. 1889)
 A real beauty!

1906John Carradine, American actor (d. 1988)

1908Daisy and Violet Hilton, British conjoined twins (d. 1969)

Imagine 60 years conjoined! Their death was sad.

1919Red Buttons, American actor (d. 2006)

1934Hank Aaron. American baseball player

2000 - Michael, Olga and Jimmy's son.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHAEL!!! (What a cutie pie!!!)

On Wednesday, the Associated Press honored
the New England Patriots' Bill Belichick as the coach
of the year. But does the "hoodie" from New England deserve it?
So, to answer the question, does Belichick deserve this award?
Yeah, sure he does.

New England's offense was atop the NFL this year, while the Patriots
scored 30+ points in eight straight games.
The Patriots were the best team in football during the regular season.
It did not work out in the playoffs, but this is a regular season award.
Congratulations Bill. Sure wish I could be watching you guys tomorrow!!!

First picture 1:30pm yesterday ... second one 5:30pm

The pooches were watching the neighbors hiking
along the fence line....

You can see where Maggie's butt was shaved and the
hair hasn't grown back. One of the symptoms of Cushings.
Old baboon butt!!!!

Yesterday the big excitement was stacking wood on the porch. We did have a great snuggy fire last night in the wood stove!
I had Tivo'd Rachael Ray and she had on Patriot's linebacker Ron Brace

who cooked steak ... Saint's kicker Garrett Hartley 

who made  crayfish etouffeé ...
and Giants tackle Chris Canty

making hot artichoke/spinach dip.
It was called the 4th Annual Super Bowl Recipe Playoff.
Joe Theisman was the judge.

Ron Brace's steak made me drool ....
The hot dip Chris Canty made looked like heaven....

And, Garrett Hartley's Crawfish Etoffeé was the big winner. I'm going to make that! But, since crawfish are hard to come by here, I'll use big shrimps...
Hartley looked like a midget standing between Brace and Canty! OMG. Funny. Canty is quite a kicker, kicking a 40 yarder in overtime to get them to the Super Bowl on January 24, 2010 against the Vikings in the NFC Championship game to send the New Orleans Saints to their first Super Bowl. He continued in Super Bowl XLIV, going 3-for-3 with field goals of 46, 44, and 47 yards. He became the first kicker in Super Bowl history to convert three field goals of 40 yards or more.

Not much going on here. Think I'll be doing some cooking experimenting...
laundry, vacuuming, etc. All the stuff that makes life worth living.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday!
