Yesterday was a day of puttering inside. I now Maggs was happy I didn't go anywhere, as she spent the day in the cool house and mostly watching critters out my bedroom slider!
So, by afternoon it was hot and the AC went on. Then a watermelon martini sounded good....
Seedless watermelon, pureéd, strained, vodka, splash of margarita mix and a little lemon juice. Mmmm mmmm mmmmm.....
Dinner was interesting. I just pulled stuff out of the cupboard... I had this awesome smoked chicken from Bill and Jeannie...(sooo moist and tender and GOOD! I wanted to just eat it all out of the bag!)
So I cut it up and put it in the bottom of a casserole dish.. then I mixed ...
and some of my canned artichoke hearts.. and minced garlic...
Mixed that and poured it over the chicken... then cooked some:
Really really good!!!

Ravens vs crows...
Ravens weigh 4 times more than crows.
Raven's wingspan is 3.5-4' and crow's is 2.5'
Raven's have pointed wings and crow's wings are blunt.
As for the old "Ravens walk, crows hop" I can't find proof that was ever true. They both walk. Well, to me it's more like a saucy saunter. The tail feathers swing side to side, exaggeratedly.
All I know. Sunday. Costco? Who knows.
