Transformer Owl ~ Vee's Cheesy Rolls ~ Proud Oregonian ~ Peppermint Patty

Good 41º foggy morning. Some drizzle last night... about 7/100ths of an inch. Just cloudy predicted for today.

Yes, 211 is the radio code for robbery.

Sent to me from Rod Johnston (former USMC & LASD)..... funny owl... Thanks Rod!

Jeannie makes these yummy 'Cheese Rolls', a recipe from her dear late Mother,
Vee White ... with a few modifications by Jeannie...

Vee's Cheesy Stuffed Rolls
2 dozen French rolls
1# grated Tillamook cheese, it is the best.
1 large can pitted black olives
1 large bottle stuffed olives (probably 8 oz or more)
1 small can Ortega chiles ( I used a small and a large, we like the chiles)
1 small tomato sauce
4 hard boiled eggs
1 cup oil

Chop the olives, Ortega chiles and eggs. Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Cut rolls and remove inside (leave some, just enough to stuff). Then stuff with mixture, put together and wrap individually in foil. Chill at least 2 hours. Heat in moderate oven still wrapped in foil. (About 10-15 in a 325º oven) If frozen heat 1 hour in 350 degree oven.

"I did add some garlic powder, onion powder and a few dashes of Tabasco for a different flavor. Enjoy!"

Yesterday morning I was having a cheesy roll with my quinoa....

They are so yummmmmmmmmmy! Thank you Jeannie!
I will make them, but cut the recipe in half.

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year outside of New York City, New York scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 100 years. They came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, a Los Angeles, California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet somewhere just outside Oceanside. Shortly after, a story in the LA Times read:

"California archaeologists report a finding of 200 year old copper cable, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers."

One week later, a local newspaper in Medford, Oregon, reported the following:

"After digging down about 30 feet deep in his pasture near the community of Independence Oregon, Walter, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing.

Walter has therefore concluded that 300 years ago,Oregon had already gone wireless".

Just makes a person proud to be from Oregon .

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.

Ah, made me tear up when I saw my Mom's picture. Miss her so very much. Thanks for her post, and hope whoever makes the cheese rolls likes them.
Gilligan's Island was one of my all time favs. Love the theme song. But OMG is right! What happened to "Ginger"?
We were a day early in this household. We ate a Peppermint Pattie last night. Sooo good.
Have a wonderful day. chat later xo

When I read the recipe for Vee's Cheesy Rolls, I knew I was looking at a recipe known as Aunt Vera's Spanish Rolls in my family trove, right down to the Tillamook Cheese. They began popping up at family functions late 40's, early 50's I think. My Aunt Vera french rolls, but scooped some of the bread out, baked them face up, no foil and 6 rolls served 12. Served them wutg tossed greeb sakad and her homemade lemon sherbet. Manna from heaven and wonderful memories. I've served these at many family holiday gatherings with a slight adjustment. I use bags of Ranch Rolls cut in half, scooped out filled and baked...for appetizer servings. Aunty Vera was the one who bought me a copy of Elena's Secrets of Mexican Cooking for my Birthday..probably my 16th. I so miss her. XO Edda

Really interesting, E, about the rolls. The french roll is a good idea too! Vee's are great because you can freeze them individually and just heat one or two at a time. I have an Infrawave oven... so it cooks something that would take 15-20 minutes in a standard oven, only 5-6 minutes. Thanks. xo

We just read your joke about the Cities vying for 1st in communications. Well Oregon would have beat them - the Indians communicated wireless hundreds of years before anyone with smoke signals..

Have a great day

When I saw the current photo of Tina Louise I said out loud "OH MY GAWD"!! Then I saw you had also said OMG! lol Her bod still looks good tho.
Love the sound of the cheese rolls. Love the chilis and would also spice them up a bit with some kind of hot sauce. YUM! I will have to copy this one for my notebook. Thanks and thanks to Jeanie for sharing!

It's a shame what happens to some of these movie people when their vanity is in the way!
