Twice Baked Potatoes w/ Avocado ~ Hummus w/ Cucumber and w/ Jalapeño Stuffed Olives ~ Hot Dog in a Wrap ~ Britain's Got Talent Dancing Boarder Collie

Good 40º cloudy morning. Got rain last night, 12 or 6 drops. The weather station said 3/100ths of an inch!
Looks like more on the way.

The national weather looks like this:
Looks like ladies in So Cal who are going to a "gala" for your Republican friends, you're gonna get wet!

Now I'm p-o'd... the power just did an off on thingy. Darn! Lost all the stuff I had written. Now have to do over again~! GRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. A few clocks were 'flashing' and the heater went off and the crockpot was flashing ..... probably the clocks upstairs too, but not in the mood to go change them right now!

I got an email from the California Avocado Commission and saw this recipe and had to share it with you.... should have made it for St. Pat's, but would be good anytime!

Yesterday I made a couple more batches of the hummus. First one was cucumber pureéd in with the garbanzo beans and then I added some finely chopped cucumber. GOOD!

The second batch I added wasabe and some pulsed jalapeño stuffed green olives. OMG. What a yummy taste!

Oink oink oink.. .I tasted so much in the process of making this I wasn't really hungry for quite some time.

In the late afternoon Maggie and I went to Dave (Ace) and Nancy's for wine and to toast Nancy's birthday (3-16). Maggie mostly napped and drank all Skeeter's water. Skeeter had a sniff fest.... 

She's so funny and sweet. Had a great time. Thanks guys! Nancy did make a hand-shake bet with me that using a Neti-pot for a week would improve greatly my sinus/coughing problem. The bet is that if it doesn't work, she's taking me out to dinner! Ok, I'll try it. UGH. Doesn't sound fun at all.

Came home and was too full to eat much, let alone do anything too creative, so after my daily chat with Jeannie, who INSISTED I eat................................. (GAWD, between Nancy and Jeannie I have two moms!)  I heated a garlic/pesto wrap, heated a turkey hot dog, and laid a piece of provolone cheese on the wrap, rolled up the hot dog in it and that was dinner!

Now most of you love dogs like I do and you will LOVE this Britain's Got Talent with a border collie named Gin! Thanks Carolyn Taylor for this!

The border collie doing her stuff on that link was wonderful. If that presentation on Britain's Got Talent doesn't put a smile on the face of those who view it, they're dead and don't know it. :) Thanks too for the recipe from the Ca Avocado Commission. They were a great help to me via the phone re: tracking down growers that still had Fuerte's in the Fallbrook, Vista areas. Gave me all kinds of info over the years and still do. Still smiling about the border collie.

Okay, I normally comment on how good your dinner looks, last night's dinner, jury is still out. LOL But, your hummus looks wonderful, especially with the cuke. I will have to try that when I get home.
Maybe I am still not awake, but next to the waffle you put "LOL:", I don't get it, and I pray this isn't going to make me look like an idiot!
Have a wonderful day. chat later. xo

You are not an idiot... the LOL is for the National Waffle Association! It's a take off on the National Rifle Association!

As for the dinner, you said it sounded WONDERFUL when we were talking about the hot dog and the cheese and wrap..... see, up close and personal didn't look that good, but it was TASTY!

Love you! xo

Hi Sue; Let us know how you liked the netti pot. I
didn't believe it either until I started using one. My
sinus was a mess. It takes like 2 min. and clears up
the whole works. My sinus is much happier. Yours
will be too. Have a great day
