Rain! ~ Borrowed Hearts ~ Edamame Hummus? ~ Peach Ice Cream Day

Good 55ยบ semi-cloudy morning.

Last year on this date it was raining ... (7-17-2011:)

All day yesterday I felt the pressure dropping ... in my hands and fingers. OUCH! Dang, arthritis is sure a weather predictor! Clouds moved in and by 2 it was looking like 'something' might happen...

.. and then at 5pm...

At 11pm last night we had rain and thunder! Didn't last but a few minutes.
I let Maggie out to pee before going to bed and lo and behold 'Baby' was sleeping on the glider on the front porch! Seems as though she is making herself completely at home! I was glad to see she was safe and dry.
......and this morning....

Here are the predictors....

Saw another good movie. Heartwarming. "Borrowed Hearts", with Roma Downey, Eric McCormack, Hector Elizondo, and the cutest monstrous Sarah Rosen Fruitman as Zoey...
I know, it's not the holidays, but it is a Christmas story.

I have this recipe I found for Edamame Hummus. It was on Ali's blog ...

Interesting blog.... lots of good food ideas. Thanks Ali for the inspiration!

Anyway.............. I didn't have any edamame. My local Rays only had "in the shell edamame". So, saving gas I decided to use what I had instead of driving the 10 miles there and 10 miles back from Grants Pass. I used frozen green peas!

This was an excellent snack! I added more garlic (of course) and it was spicy and refreshing! Today I'm going to put the remaining back into the food processor and add a can of garbanzo beans. Just to experiment! What could be better for you!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.
