Good 43º cloudy and drizzly morning. Predictions are rain for a week....
My smoothie yesterday morning was interesting, and good! Spinach leaves, cantaloupe, flax seed, and juice from the tomatoes I cooked for marinara sauce. With the control on the smoothie machine I heated it up slightly. Drinking cold icy smoothies in the cold morning are not fun! I am feeling 100% better now that I am back drinking vegetable smoothies in the morning!
A Wish To Live Forever
I met a fairy today. He said he would grant me one wish.
"I want to live forever", I said.
"Sorry", said the fairy. "I'm not allowed to grant wishes like that."
"Fine", I said, "then I want to die as soon as Congress gets it's head out of it's ass."
"You crafty bastard", said the fairy. (LOL)
.... a funny from my friend Dee Yellin....
Rush Limbaugh's response to the General Petraeus & Allen scandle is an instant classic:
"Too many generals taking orders from their privates" !!
The turkeys out in my yard make me laugh...

Yesterday I made a cake I saw Hungry Girl (www.hungrygirl.com) make on Dr. Oz.... no fat no eggs...
The ingredients are a box of 'moist' white cake mix and...
12 oz (1 1/2 cups) flavored seltzer water (I used lemon flavored mineral water)
In a large bowl mix the two together, pour into a 9x13 pan (next time I will put in a muffin pan) sprayed with cooking spray, bake 35-40 min (watch, browns fast) at 350º.
Sooooo easy and so good and moist and light! Figure friendly!!
..... And no frosting needed! Put some berries on top. Yes!
Dinner was a mixture of leftovers....
cooked 'Mexican' flavored Uncle Ben's rice
cooked chicken thighs cut up (skinless boneless cooked in crockpot 8 hours on low in green enchilada sauce)
broccoli slaw, grape tomatoes, and spinach all sauteéd in olive oil. GOOD!!!
He's still a cutie!!! I told him I wanted the "serious I mean business" look! Now he looks like he could be the Sgt. Major!
BTW, if you are in the Grants Pass area Brian has a box for Toys for Tots in his State Farm Office on Allen Creek in the Albertson's shopping center. Bring a toy or two and help fill it up.
All I know. Nuff said. TGIF. Ciao
