Asparagus 'n Eggs ~ Bruiser ~ Homemade Soup ~ Football

Good 41ยบ cloudy morning. Supposed to stay dry for a few days. Good, then I can get Jason up here to blow the leaves off my road.

Breakfast yesterday was GREAT. Put a few twirls of olive oil in a frying pan. Add the cut up asparagus, taking off the tough end. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Cook them on a med-high heat for about 3-4 minutes. Scramble the eggs and add, turning down the heat. Stir and flip the mixture until done. Add Parmesan cheese (or any yellow or white cheese!). Plate and enjoy!

Bruiser came in the house yesterday, while Harley was locked in the bathroom to avoid any confrontation. He was nosey and happy. Purred and purred. He laid down next to my chair and kept purring. Funny boy. So glad he's healthy again.

Of course Mr. Nosey had to see what was on my desk that had me so interested!

Then later Maggie and Bruiser were napping next to each other on the porch!

Dinner yesterday (and breakfast this morning...) was soup made in the crockpot. I had some chicken base left in the pot from cooking chicken for Maggie so added to that some chicken stock, onion soup mix, a can of chicken (I needed to use), peas, tomatoes (both diced big ones and grape tomatoes), carrots, mushrooms, garlic, and basil. AND one of my favorite pastas, Anellini! (little circles) All this an attempt to clean out the fridge and cupboard! (Now I know Patty you are turning up your nose at the basil and Jeannie doesn't like peas..... so don't put them in! Put in what you like!)

Absolutely DE-LISH!!!

Re Football Sunday.... too bad the NYGiants beat Green Bay! (38-10) I know Jeannie is happy re the 49ers win over the Saints. (31-21) Santistevens are happy the Bears womped the Vikings. (28-10) I am happy the Bengals took out the Raiders! (34-10) Brian is happy his Colts squeaked past Bill's Bills! (20-13) <g> Miami sneezed and took out the Seahawks. (24-21) And I'm sure Cliff is sad the Ravens barely over his Chargers. (16-13) Tonight is going to be a yawner... Panthers and Eagles.

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

National Cake Day

Here is one of my favorite cakes... German Chocolate Cake:
only a different way to make it....

Mix the can of frosting into the cake mix along with the other ingredients. Eat plain or dust with powdered sugar or melt caramels and drizzle over the top.
