Pear Vodka ~ Vietnamese Fish ~ Jean ~ Lovella ~ Hot Mulled Cider

Good 46º supposed to be slightly cloudy morning. Another 90º day. Come on Fall!!!!

And can you believe it....this is the END of September! Where did this month go???? Do you realize how close Christmas is?

I have finished the infusing of the vodka with the pears. OMGood! In one jar I put some cinnamon sticks. That's good too. Going to share with my friends. And by the way, the pear pieces I took out of the vodka are POTENT! Yummy.

You might want to watch this 4 minute video of the Vietnamese fish farms. If you buy fish from Viet Nam, catfish, talapia, be warned. Check the packaging to see where the fish comes from. In restaurants, ask. This from my friend George Bachmeier.....

Yesterday was a surprise birthday luncheon for Jen's mom Jean. Jean turns the big 70 on 10-3 so Jen fixed a bunch of food, made a fabulous carrot cake, and we all had mimosas and lots of chatting....

Fall? ~ Stir-fry Noodles Shrimp Broccoli Slaw ~ Coffee Day

Good 46º morning. Full Moon out there kids. BE CAREFUL!!!

Sheesh... Fall? I don't think so. 95º yesterday afternoon at 5pm. UGH. Morning shot with a few clouds...

Now the sun goes down so early... here it is 6:09 pm!

Dinner last night... Yakisoba Noodles, shrimp, broccoli slaw, and grape tomatoes.

Heat the noodles up in the microwave... add olive oil to the pan and stir fry the noodles with broccoli slaw.... add the shrimp and tomatoes (or mushrooms or whatever) and then when hot, add the seasoning packet that comes with the noodles and some water for a sauce. OUTSTANDING!


Here is something I thought interesting and forgot to put it in yesterday's blog. At the Elk's Lodge Thursday when it was time for Willie to go off duty the new guy came in, Daryl. I was asking him about where he originally came from... Redwood City (south of San Francisco). He graduated from Sequoia High School. OMG! Jerry grew up there and was at the same school....only Jerry was about a year ahead of Daryl! Small world! The only difference was, Daryl graduated. Jerry tossed the Boy's VP out his window and his desk on top of him! The judge gave him a choice.... jail or "go see that Marine Corps recruiter in the back of the room" ! LOL, bet that BVP wouldn't believe Jerry was an honorable Marine and was a Deputy Sheriff for 30 years too.

While there were no immediate repercussions in response to his marriage, the action would soon come to haunt him.
