Drummer Jack ~ Chicken Salad ~ Homebrew & Orange Juice Day

Good 43ยบ cloudy morning. It rained on and off all day yesterday, very light, but it was WINDY!

Yesterday my grandson Jack was playing for open house. They did the National Anthem and Viva la Vida ( ). The 7th & 8th grade band performed before the PTA meeting.


OMG, you have to see this golden retriever ... amazing dog!
This dog guards the guy's bike and then climbs on and rides.

I had never made chicken salad. Don't know why, probably because Jerry liked tuna salad and his chicken fried ... Anyway, decided to try it. Poached a couple of chicken breasts to start.... then I chopped up some celery, sweet pepper, green onion, grated some ginger, and also added some broccoli slaw...

The best way to preserve fresh ginger is by putting it in a jar and cover it with vodka or gin. It will last forever! Then when you use up the ginger, you will have a very flavorful drink! Yummm.....

Chopped the chicken ....

For the dressing I whisked some BF mayonnaise, Philippe's mustard (famous from Philippes in Los Angeles )

a little lemon juice and some sea salt and citrus pepper...... then added some chopped bacon. I topped the salad with a couple chopped hard boiled eggs and fresh flat leaf parsley.

This famous restaurant, French Dip sandwiches to die for.. is across the street from the Terminal Annex Post Office (my Dad worked there!) and down the street from Union Station and Olvera Street. You can get the mustard by mail order.

Yesterday I had to run to Albertson's in Grants Pass. As I approached the entrance, I noticed a driver looking for a parking space. I flagged the driver and pointed out a parking space in the handicap area. The driver looked puzzled. ''I'm not handicapped'' she said. Well, was my face red. ''Oh, sorry about that, I saw your Obama sticker and just thought...''

She gave me the finger and called me some nasty names. Sheesh! Some people are like that... and when you're just trying to help them. :o)

National Homebrew Day


National Orange Juice Day

Here is the 'vintage' hand press Wearever juicer I have used for years. It was my Mom's and patented in 1930. It will press out juice from just any citrus and I used it to juice pomegranates when Charlean and I made pomegranate wine. Works so cool! They are selling on E-bay for $45-$58.
