Maggie ~ Oyster Po'boy ~ Texas Patty ~ Macadamia Nuts

Good 68º the-day-is-almost-over morning!


Maggie developed a problem on Sunday night with a bleeding nose. She's had a tumor in there for some time and something happened and she sneezed out a huge red glob. The vet wanted her in first thing this morning. He said she also has a tumor on her hiney and that came up fast since last month when he saw her. So it will be removed and the nose flushed out. I think she may stay overnight at the vets. Not sure. Worried. She's almost 14, which is past the standard age of 12. I guess the spoiling has paid off. Along with Harley who is almost 22! Vet always shakes his head and smiles when he asks and I tell him about Harley.

Last night I cooked the oysters and made a po'boy sandwich. Dipped the oysters in a mixture of corn meal and Panko crumbs. Fried them in garlic infused olive oil. Boudin bread was spread with Kraft Cracked Corn mayo, tomatoes added, spinach, and the oysters. YUMMMMMMM!!!!

At the Olympics.. they hate America so much they can't even

September 4th
National Macadamia Nut Day


These nuts are sooooooo good! I buy them at Costco and enjoy them often. I also give a container of these to Kristen and Brian at Christmas. My Dad had this Macadamia Nut tree in front of our house. Not an easy chore to grow one in So Cal where the frost would harm the tree, blooms, and the nuts. Daddy was vigilant for frost and would go out in the early hours of the morning and spray the tree with water so nothing would freeze. Mother would put the nuts on a cookie sheet in the oven to dry out with just the pilot light on. Then Daddy would take them to his shop and crack them open with his vice. The shells are HARD as NAILS~ (Kristen and Brian would do this too) The old El Sereno house has been remodeled (second story) but the tree is still there!
