Good 41º pouring windy morning. Rained all night. We now have 1½" since yesterday. Kayaking time in my seasonal creek!!! Maggie keeping vigil on the porch......
Remember I fixed the cheesy mashed potatoes and added green beans to them? Well for breakfast I heated the potato bean mix in a frying pan and then added a couple eggs. Really good!!!
On my way to Central Point and the JCRW lunch the other day I had to stop for a train. You can't turn onto the street that the train crosses until the train is gone. Interesting sign... just a red light won't do.
Watching the Rachael Ray Show the other day and she had a chef on, Rick Bayless, and he made 5 kinds of guacamole. Co-host was Carson Daly. They all sounded GOOD!!!! And he included his Margarita recipe....
My friend, Suzanne Santisteven (ret LASD .. hubby Phil LASD) is celebrating her daughter, Alyssa's 14th birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALYSSA!!!

Yesterday I went to Dave and Nancy's for Christmas Cheer. Nancy had made a delicious salsa, Dave fixed crackers with pickle, cream cheese,smoked salmon, and topped it with some sweet chili sauce (my homemade I gave them). YUMMMMY!!! I took the jalapeno popper spread. We had a great visit and the food was awesome!
Thanks Nancy & Dave. And, lucky me, I got to bring home some of Nancy's biscotti (to die for!)
and she also made lemon ricotta cookies! OMGOOD!!!!!
And of course, Skeeter was her charming self... a happy little love!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.
