Habañero Sausage/Asparagus-Gruyere Ravioli ~ My Pillow ~ Mary & Gil and April

Good 56º drizzly morning. 60% chance rain today. Shoulda mowed yesterday! Dang. Heard 10 minutes of rain on the patio roof at midnight. Some radar over us. We'll see......


Ever wonder about the number of states starting with the alphabet letters???

A-4 B-0 C-3 D-1 E-0 F-1 G-1 H-1 I-4 J-0

K- 2 L-1 M-8 N-8 O-3 P-1 Q-0 R-1 S-2 T-2

U-1 V-2 W-4 X-0 Y-0 Z-0

Ike Saben sent me a little deallie on state flowers. I'm always surprised that the state flower of Oregon isn't cannabis.

Dinner last night ....
1. Aidells Habañero/Pepper Jack sausage, cut and even though it's cooked I like to brown their buns a little.. and this sausage, even though it says it contains 'habañeros' it's not that hot... a teeny tiny bite. But very GOOD!!!

2. roasted carrots and broccoli

3. La Pasta Asparagus and Gruyere cheese ravioli

4. Philadelphia Savory Lemon & Herb cooking cream
(Both the sausage and ravioli came from Costco)

5. roasted (425º coated with olive oil, garlic powder, sea salt, pepper for 30 minutes) broccoli and carrots (cut in half lengthwise)

The lemon/herb cooking sauce is awesome! I did, however, add a few drizzles of lemon juice.

A week or so ago I was watching a TV commercial for "My Pillow" and decided to try it. I have used several different kinds of pillows and not really happy with any of them for any length of time. So, I went to and ordered one. I got the size "white" (white is the tag not the pillow color, although they are all white in color) .... they also come in "green" "yellow" "blue" and "red" depending on your size (child, female med, female large, long neck, man med, man large, etc). Check the site, watch the video. I have used the pillow for 4 nights now and slept really GOOD! I get comfy and don't move all night! No tossing and turning and adjusting the pillow. Amazing!

A special anniversary today... Mary (Fancher) and Gil Zavala... Wilsonites. Celebrating 46 years!

And April Frey, Kristen's buddy, and the BEST massage therapist, wife of Brian the awesome skilled dry wall putter upper who did my living room.... and  is celebrating her big 40 + 1 birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY APRIL!

Yum Yum re your dinner. Need to pick up some of that ravioli. The way you put stuff together is great, always gives me good ideas. Thanks.
Okay, you have convinced me, I am going to order that pillow, Sure hope it works for me. To sleep through the night would be a dream. LOL
Have a wonderful day. Thanks for all the history. Fun stuff to read.

Yes, that ravioli is GREAT! You will like. Very cheesy. As for the pillow, at least it's a money back guarantee for 60 days. Long enough to test it out. Have fun today! xo

Please tell us what is inside that pillow. I sleep on two and both are Temperpedic. Rather hard. Does yours flatten down as in feathers? "Splain please.
mmmmWonder if I can find those raviolis here in our stores. Would certainly like to try that hab. sausage since you say it's not all that hot. I love hot but stay away from anything that says hab. Is it pork?
Interesting story about Willy Nelson. I heard him tell that his singing career went no where when he dressed in a "normal" way and looked like that first pic you posted. When he went weird then his career took off! Strange, huh?

Hi T. I suggest you click the link for my pillow and watch the commercial. It's not hard, firm, but can be fluffed. It's different size foam. It dosn't flatten out.

The Aidells sausage are smoked chicken. Of course Costco has many different kinds of Aidells. xo

Thanks for the Anniversary wishes. We went out for a nice dinner at a local restaurant. Gil had marlin fish prepared sashimi style with black rice cakes and vegetables. I had rack of lamb with fingerling potatoes and vegetables. Marscapone ice cream for dessert and the restaurant gave us coffee flavored creme brulee. Mary
