Mother's Killer Biscuits ~ Silly Turkeys ~ Killer Sunset

Good 43º morning. More rain on the way....

Got the following from Onion Mike. Just in case you weren't aware of the dangers. A good warning prior to the holidays:

ALCOHOL AND ICE....please read!!!
When you drink vodka over ice, it can give you kidney failure.
When you drink rum over ice, it can give you liver failure.

When you drink whiskey over ice, it can give you heart
When you drink gin over ice, it can give you brain problems.

Apparently, ice is really bad for you.
Warn all your friends.

Yesterday I baked "Mother's Killer Biscuits" for the dinner one in our Law Enforcement group, Dennis Offerman (former Benicia, I think, ... near SF) is putting on for the Grants Pass/Josephine Co police, deputies, paramedics, and fire on Thanksgiving. These biscuits are really awesome. Been making them for over 30 years. A family holiday staple. You need 2 packages of Grands biscuits, 1 cube butter, a bundt pan. Arrange biscuits in a circle in the pan on their side. Melt butter in microwave (30 seconds) and pour over the biscuits. Bake at 350º for approx 30-37 minutes (depending on you oven and altitude... mine took 37) until dark golden brown on top. Put on rack to cool. After about 10 minutes turn out onto a plate.

You make these, and you will thank me!

I went outside and there were the turkeys .... wayyyyyyy down in the lower section. They saw me and made a bee-line this way....

So, since I had thrown out some grub for the birds and gray squirrels they decided it was for them!

They seem to be quite happy they are not on tomorrow's menu!

Interesting sunset yesterday.....
We got more rain, between 11am yesterday and this morning....
Maggs just lay on the Princess Bed and slept through most of it...

Today is a dear sweet friend's birthday, Gracie Elliott, married to Jack, both former LASD. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRACIE!!! Love you girl. I hope your day is SPECIAL!
