Dentist ~ Chelada/Lime-A-Rita ~ Teri ~ Vegetable Casserole ~ Scallops

Good 45º morning.
10-2 is a radio code for 'receiving well'.

Yesterday off to the dental doc. Liz cleaned my teeth and we had a fun chat, and then the doc checked them. All perfect. No cavities, no gum problems. YEA! Then to the bank to deposit Blue Cross checks, the Post Office to mail bills, pharmacy to pick up prescription, market to get veggies (boo hoo boo hoo no eggplant!) , cat food and mozzarella cheese. Oh and I got 2 cans of the Budweiser 'Chelada', Clamato and one with salt and Lime and one with sal y límon ('s in Spanish!)... and a can of Budweiser Lime-a-Rita (that Linda Rhorbacher said was good!)

So made a deviled egg sandwich with tomato for lunch and had some of the Chelada. GOOD stuff!

If any of you know Bill Woodcock, ret LASD.... I just heard from him yesterday. Bill and Jerry worked together on Catalina Island. He's got a billiards tournament happening next June for retired or active ... "Police & Fire Championship fo the United States" ! If you would like a copy of the flyer, email me. This will be held in San Diego June 17-20.

Another LASD retiree, in the news.... Terri Prim who was the station secretary at Avalon Station is celebrating today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TERI!!!

And, hard to believe Ronnie Lancaster has been gone a year today. His family having a memorial service for him in his home of Happy Texas this week. RIP Ronnie!

Historically this date....
1789George Washington sends the proposed Constitutional amendments (The United States Bill of Rights) to the States for ratification.

1919U.S. President Woodrow Wilson suffers a massive stroke, leaving him partially paralyzed.

2001NATO backs U.S. military strikes following 9/11.

And births this date include...
1890Groucho Marx, American comedian and actor (d. 1977)

1895Bud Abbott, American comedian and actor (d. 1974)
.... and it seems he died broke and friendless. You can read a sad story written about him in 1960:

1928George "Spanky" McFarland, American actor (d. 1993)

Since yesterday was World Vegetarian Day I made an all veggie dinner. Yellow squash, zucchini, mushrooms, cauliflower, bell pepper.... pasta sauce, creamy Alfredo sauce, and mozzarella cheese. (no eggplant.... darn!)

First I sliced all the veggies, coated them with olive oil, grilled on the George Foreman grill.

Then I layered the pasta sauce, veggies, creamy Alfredo cheese, and more pasta sauce, vegs, Alfredo, and ending with cheese. Baked until hot and melted.

This was very very good!!!!

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

National Fried Scallops Day

Pan seared is the best! Don't coat scallops. Heat pan coated in olive oil and add 1 chopped shallot and cook for about a minute. Add 1 can drained artichoke hearts in water, heat through. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1 T drained capers and about 1/4 cup chopped parsley leaves. Toss togetherr and heat. Transfer to serving dish. Wipe out pan and return to heat, raising heat level. Season drained scallops with salt and pepper. Add olive oil to pan and immediately add scallops. Sear in a single layer, causing them to caramelize, 2 minutes each side. Add 1/2 cup lemon juice and 3-4 pats butter. Cook 1-2 minutes. Arrange scallops over the top of the artichoke hearts and serve. OMG this is soooooooooooooooo good!! A favorite recipe for a very long time!
