Patriots! ~ Helper Bruiser ~ One Pot Meal ~ Noodle Ring

Good 40ยบ foggy/cloudy morning. Rain on it's way... nothing on the radar yet, but sure is activity via satellite...

Sunset last night was a beauty....

Last nights game was AWESOME!!! My Pats wiped up the Texans in Foxborough 42-14! WHOOT WHOOT WHOOT!!!

After 'The Bruise' returned from his journey yesterday he did spend some quality time in his new bed. I went to Petco and got him a real soft fluffy warm winter bed... and he likes it!

Yesterday I spent, finally, getting boxes of Christmas stuff ready to send off via UPS to various parts of the country. Bruiser came in and "helped" me wrap.... he made me laugh, he's so funny and interested in EVERYTHING!

I also finished up a lot of Christmas cards. All go in the mail today. A quick run into GP for a couple of things, back home to finish up, then UPS here I come.

Maggie went to the mailbox and took trash out riding in the golf cart. We say Bruiser on the 'hunt' for something. As soon as he saw us he came running....

Of course last night I watched the game... and dinner was one of my 'concoctions' ... a little of this and a little of that. I had just cooked a crockpot full of boneless chicken thighs for Maggie and had one left from the previous batch, so cut that up, added in some cooked Mexican flavored rice, chopped asparagus, couple of tomatoes, reconstituted dried mushrooms, and artichoke hearts.... in olive oil in the big pan...

As part of a birthday gift Jeannie gave me some of this awesome sea salt mix from Italy that contains sea salt, rosemary, sage, black pepper, & garlic. Added some of that!

Then I stirred in some smokehouse bacon dip........ and sprinkled on a handful of grated cheese (yellow and white)

So DARNED GOOD!! The leftovers are for breakfast with an egg!
