Maggie & Mr. Ground Squirrel ~ Won Ton Tacos

Good (Burrrr.....) 43º morning. I wish I had my downy comforter on the bed last night. I really got cold. Windows were open. My goodness.

Nationwide Candlelight Memorial ..
To honor our heroes, tonight, Wednesday, between 8-11pm, every American should light a candle in memory of our US SEAL Team 6.

Now here is a great video of a cat on a houseboat playing with dolphins....
Yesterday I cleaned, tossed out, organized. I am just in a whirlwind. It does feel good. The UPS gal showed up with my new vacuum...


It's a Panasonic with a bag and a hepa filter. I like it because all the tools are stored in the cleaner, it's  light weight (good for my stairs and upstairs! I have an upright, but it's really heavy!) and it got a cord that is more than 5 feet long! My old one, yes, the cord is only 5 feet long and a pain in the 'you know'. Always have to attach an extension cord. Anyone need a little Eureka vacuum for a small space??? It looks like this...

If nobody wants it, I will put it by my mailbox and it will be gone in 60 seconds!!! LOL. Put a little old fold up stool out there the other day. Someone wanted it!

So, worked on my saved recipe files. Put them into clear plastic sleeves and into a notebook. I constantly cut out and save stuff like that. Did get rid of a lot of recipes I know I'll never make.
Then I went into my bedroom to find a notebook and here was Maggie, just resting and looking around....

The silly didn't even see the ground squirrel! OMG. Well, I made a bunch of noise and then............

Little bugger! Since Maggie is pretty deaf I poked her butt and she turned and I waved for her to come, opened the back door, and she was out like a SHOT!!! Don't think the 'bugger' will be back for awhile! LOL

I have a new screen save... so cute... cats eyes move back and forth, fish swim all over...

Bill and Jeannie took a drive into see Brian  and he did his magical money saving deal....  ♥♪♫ Like A Good Neighbor.. State Farm Is There....♥♪♫ 

Then they came home and Chaka Baby got to lounge in the pool....  Happy girl! Such a love.

Dinner last night was an experiment. Won Ton Tacos....
Separate the won ton wrappers, spray the edges of a baking dish, lay them over the edge, bake at 400º for 6-7 minutes, until crisping and some brown....


When the won tons had cooled I filled them with shredded chicken, shredded mozzarella cheese, and topped with a mixture of Harry and David's Mango salsa and Lay's French Onion dip....

Tasty, but I may or may not make them again. Different, honey.  I did cook some wrappers in the muffin tin, and then filled a couple, but that was unsuccessful.


These were just messy to eat.
All I know. Nuff said. Ciao. Happy Hump Day.
