~ Tucker's Baseball ~ Spinach Eggs/Apple-Celery Salad ~

Good 38ยบ morning.   
OMG, what a blustery day in 100 acre wood yesterday! This was 6:30am...
I have never had the rain come down so hard on me, ever, when I was driving to Medford before noon! It was so hard that it cleaned the car amazingly well! It rained like heqq, then suddenly as it started it stopped and the pavement was dry! Then it'd start again!
I had to go to the Medford Library for a meeting of our JCRW's board. I stopped for gas on the way home......
LOOK,  211 at the bank!!!! <g>
Happy to be home and Maggie happy too. The wind was awful here. Howling. Blooms blowing off trees. Yikes! Here we are at
.... and the turkeys were not moving around much....
You don't see them laying down too often.
Tucker's baseball game was fun on Saturday afternoon. The kids are sooooo small. Cute. Tucker was in the field ....dancing!

It gets boring while you are waiting for the action!
And then he hit the ball!
And Sami danced for me.

 We stood under the overhang by the bathrooms because of the rain.
Brian pretended he had an umbrella!

Here's a couple of the recipes from Easter... I really liked the deviled eggs with salsa and cheese, but these are my favorite:
Deviled Eggs w/ Spinach and Bacon
12 eggs hard-boiled, cooled, cut in half, yolks in bowl.
12 strips Oscar Mayer turkey bacon, cooked crisp, and chopped
3/4 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed, and squeezed dry
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 T white vinegar
1 T sugar
pepper and salt
The Mexican Deviled Eggs:
12 eggs hard-boiled, cooled, cut in half, yolks in bowl.
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1/4+ cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup salsa
snipped fresh chives or 2 T green onions, chopped
1-2 T sour cream
salt to taste
And, I liked this Celery-Green Apple Salad:
Fresh or bottled lemon juice
2 T. Dijon mustard
1 T + 1 t Agave Nectar or honey
6 T. Extra-virgin olive oil
5-6 stalks celery
2 large Granny Smithy apples
salt to taste
1/2 c. walnuts, toasted and chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries or cran-raisins
Cut apples in half, peel, take out core. Cut each half into halves. Slice the apples thin.
As you finish one, put in bowl and drizzle on lemon juice and mix to coat. This keeps the apples from turning brown. Slice celery stalks on a diagonal, enough to make 3 cups. (I had doubled the recipe)

Mix 2 T lemon juice, 2 T mustard, the Agave with a whisk. Mix in the olive oil and whisk well. I think next time I'll add a few drops of Sesame Oil also. Pour off extra lemon from apples and mix apples and celery and toss with dressing. Toast walnuts on high heat in large frying pan for about 3 minutes. Watch carefully. Cool and coarsely chop. Add the walnuts and cranberries to salad just before serving.
Dinner last night was "organic" mac and cheese and I added broccoli, green peas, and pepperoni. I know, you laugh at my
weird concoctions.....
.... but it was GOOD!!!!
By 7:30 last night we finally got a sunset. It's been a long while!
All I know. Happy Tuesday. Nuff said. Ciao.
