Weather ~ Gary S ~ Football ~ Stuffed Pumpkin & Green Tomato Pickle Martini

Good 44º on the verge of big rain/wind storm... We got 1/2" out of this last one...

today is particularly gloomy.... and drizzling now...

while Maggie is out on the wind blown leafy porch on her Princess bed enjoying the cool morning.

As for the "Gary Sinise" we saw at TJ's on Saturday.......

Close, but no cigar! He sure could play his look-alike! I got the following comments re the picture yesterday of "Gary"....

Brian called IMMEDIATELY after I published my blog and said, "NO WAY is that Gary Sinise!!!" lol

Ed said, "GARY SINISE was at the opening of the new Trader Joe's? Are you sure it wasn't a look a like."

Patty..."I bet it was exciting to see Gary Sinise. He seems to be such a nice person."

Hiouchi Ann...."Oh my gosh, Gary Sinise. What a patriot!!!"

Del said..."Gary Senise? Didn't look like him but I take your word!! Hahaha"

Erika said, " How exciting to run into Gary Sinise and his wife! As they say, sooner or later all smart Californians move to Oregon. I've seen him on CSI & also on an ad for his foundation to help Service men & first responders. Sounds like a very civic minded man.

Joann said, "Was that really Gary Sinise? How cool!
Why was he in Medford? On vacation?"

...... so, it wasn't the real Gary... but danged close! Thanks, whoever you are, for letting me publish your photo!

As for football yesterday, sorry Brian, my Pats sure put a hurt on your Colts (59-24). Luck is very good, but needs some help from the rest of the team! Kristen and Olga's Jets did well over the Lambs (27-13). Bill's Bills squeaked by the Dolphins (19-14). Packers inched by the Lions (24-20). 'Nawlans' womped the Raiders <g> (38-17). Peyton and his Broncos cut up Cliff's Chargers (30-23). What a football day!

Phil & Suzanne's Bears play Jeannie's 49ers tonight.

Dinner last night was the stuffed pumpkin...
First I started off with a "pickled green tomato martini" to watch the end of the Pats/Colts game. OMGOOD!

Then to the pumpkin... the ingredients were one small pumpkin, garlic, onion, cooked ground beef, mushrooms, spicy linguini noodles, and turkey gravy. (If I had beef gravy I would have used that.)

Cut open the pumpkin top, take out seeds (rinse and separate seeds to roast later)... Mix up stuffing ingredients and put inside pumpkin, put on top, fill pan with a couple inches of water, bake at 300º for 3 hours, or until slight pressure on the outside with a knife (lol, or chopstick) indicates it's soft....

This is really really really good!!!!

Ok, all I know. Will see how Bruiser is doing today and hopefully bring him home.

Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.
