Casper ~ Spinach/Chicken/Fusilli ~ Pecan Day

Good 43ยบ somewhat cloudy morning. No rain predicted today. Good thing, Pear Blossom Festival in Medford/Ashland today and Tucker has a baseball game.

Yesterday Mark from Trees Inc came by to see if any trees need trimming from under the power lines...

and.... I went out to see the geese who were making a racket
and saw "Casper" up by the pump house. I called to him but got that glancing look "don't bother me"..... In about 30 minutes he was in the bed of the golf cart chowing down!

I did my best not to frighten him by being sneaky taking pictures through the glass back door ....

The dinner I made Thursday was nothing I thought to shout about, but have had inquiries and comments.... so...... I took the spinach filling I made for the Greek Stuffed Chicken Breast on April 11th and put it in a fry pan along with some cut up crockpot chicken, Roma tomatoes, and a bit of olive oil and heated it. I cooked some fusilli (bionaturae organic)
and added that to the pan along with about 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. Heated it through... Good!!!

I really like the spinach pasta combination so may do some more experimenting with that. Saw a chef make a pesto with arugula the other day.

Also interesting!
