Harley & Friends ~ Potato Chicken Casserole

Good 36º raining morning. Yesterday afternoon we had gotten 1/2" ... now it looks like we got another 1/4".

I just wanted to say I really did appreciate all of you who didn't send me emails while my power was off. Still I had over 150+ of those babies.......

The other day Patty and Cliff stopped by for some catch up and a cocktail. We had a nice visit and Harley was in heaven with Cliff's big lap "just for him".....
.... and this is a great picture of Patty!

I forgot to put on my blog yesterday, the 25th, that it was the 39th anniversary of my first date with Jerry. He took me to a seafood restaurant in East Pasadena on Foothill in the Hastings Shopping Center. It's not there anymore, but he wined and dined me.... lobster tail. OMG. I was smitten. Wish I could think of the name of that place! Brain fart!!!

Here is a good dish I thought up... I had peeled, sliced, and roasted with olive oil and some seasonings some potatoes that were getting old. I asked Jeannie if she had any ideas as to what to do with them... she suggested scalloped with ham. Didn't have any ham, never really made scalloped... so I layered them in a 9x9 dish, re-constituted some mushrooms and added them on top. Added chopped fresh tomatoes. I opened a couple cans of Kirkland chicken, added most of one can on top of the potatoes and some cheese. Repeated layer...
Then I mixed about 1/4 stick of butter with Panko crumbs, put them on top, and baked for 40 minutes at 350º. OMGOOD!
