LBBs ~ Corn Casserole ~ Jose Cuervo Is A Friend of Mine!

Good clear sunny 58º morning. Hit 90º yesterday. Turned on the AC for the first time, late in the afternoon. Nice.
Mr. LBB was looking out at me....
He and momma are so busy feeding their noisy babies!

I have a Catalpa Tree in my front yard...
The tree is covered in these flowers that are almost sickeningly sweet smelling...
There is a Catalpa Street in El Sereno, where I grew up ... north of Valley Blvd and between Eastern and Soto. (Some of you Wilsonites may have lived on that street. If you did, e me.)
Here is a 'tried and true' Southern side dish. I love this...
Corn Casserole
1 (15¼ oz) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (14¾ oz) can cream-style corn
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 stick butter, melted
1 to 1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 pkg Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
Preheat oven to 350º.
In a large bowl mix all the ingredients except cheese. Pour into greased or 'Pam'-d casserole dish. Bake 45 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and top with cheese, return for 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes and serve warm.
 (Billy, this would be good with your pork ribs!! Slurp.)

July 24th
National Tequila Day
(Oh yes!)
Well, it's Sunday mornin',
And the sun is shinin' in my
Eye that is open,
And my head is spinnin',
Was the life of the party,
I can't stop grinnin',
I had too much tequila last night.
José Cuervo you are a friend of mine.
I like to drink you
with a little salt and lime.
Did I kiss all the cowboys?
Did I shoot out the lights?
Did I dance on the bar?
Did I start any fights?
Now wait a minute,
Things don't look too familiar.
Who is the cowboy who's sleepin' beside me?
Well, he's awfully cute,
But how'd I get his shirt on?
I had too much tequila last night.
All those little shooters,
How I love to drink them down.
Come on bartender, let's have another round.
Well, the music is playin',
And my spirits are high.
Tomorrow might be painful,
But tonight we're gonna fly.
José Curervo
You are a friend of mine.
I like to drink you with a little salt and lime.
Everytime we get together,
I sure have a good time.
You're my friend, you're the best...
Mí Amigo....
José Cuervo, you are a friend of mine!
