Standard Time Change ~ Isabella Grace ~ Chicken Thighs ~ Crazy Bruiser

Good 47º too dark to see morning! But, it is foggy out there!

I keep being drawn to watching the east coast channels about Sandy. (See, Sandy, you are infamous... your name is being bandied about constantly! LOL One lady in NY said they have a black lab named Sandy, but are going to change her name now!) The NY Mayor Bloomberg is something else. I have never heard anyone talk so much and go on and on without a note or prompter or ...... The man makes me out of breath! He barely takes any himself!

OMG, this is so funny... sent by Deeeewayne Honeee P-Berger... "Preparing to meet the new dog" !!! This is the one reason Maggie soooo respects's the claws!


Sunday, Nov 4th 8pm........

We've got a major problem....
Tomorrow, National Geographic Channel will begin broadcasting "Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden," even after reporting by the New York Times and other media outlets disclosed that the timing and editing of the film by Obama mega-donor and Hollywood liberal Harvey Weinstein were orchestrated to use the heroic work of U.S. Special Operations Forces to promote President Obama's re-election. OPSEC's not going take this sitting down.

“OPSEC is a vital element in protecting the Army’s soldiers and missions, and I want to stress how vital a role every member of the team plays in ensuring that we deny our
adversaries potentially useful information.
“Whether we are on duty or off duty, we cannot afford to let our guard down. Your diligence in OPSEC is key to ensuring our effectiveness in operations and our collective safety.
Together, we will succeed.”
Maj. Gen. Keith B. Alexander
Commanding General
U.S. Army Intelligence

Still working on the "stitching"...

My friends Trish & John Bowler (LASD ret) just became grandparents for the first time! Baby Isabella, against the wishes of her mom Debbie, was born on Halloween! Not to worry Debbie, I have a Halloween baby too and it's all good!

Congratulations to grandparents all, to Kevin and Debbie, and aunt and uncles! She is ADORABLE!!!

Shopping the other day I found skinless boneless chicken thighs ("product of the United States" !) on sale in 3-4 pound packages. The cost was $3.79 per pound, BUT if you bought one package you got the second one free. That's $1.89 per pound. I got two, of course. Then yesterday morning I added some green enchilada sauce to the crockpot, added one package of the thighs, and turned that baby on to high for 8 hours.

Later I cooked some quinoa, adding rinsed black beans, habañero pepper, onion ... salt and the crockpot, covered with water and when done cooking I stirred in a can of refried beans..... heating through.

I served it with the chicken (soooo good and tender... fell apart) and poured over some of the enchilada sauce.... Awesome!

Sandwich Day


The annals of English history report that John Montagu was the 4th Earl of Sandwich. Among other things, the 4th Earl of Sandwich was a heavy gambler. Montagu often spent many long hours in London's gambling parlors. In 1762, he created the sandwich, by putting meat between two pieces of bread. This allowed him to remain at the gambling table for long periods of time. Obviously, the sandwich was named after him
