Sami ~ Chaka ~ Bob ~ No Fat Cream Sauce ~ The Bruise After His Tail ~ Couscous Rerun

Good 41º cloudy gloomy morning, so far.

A year ago on this day we had snow!! Yesterday we had a heat wave and it hit 64º.

Today is Sami's 5th birthday. Partay~! Today is also my pals Jeannie and Bill's dog Chaka's 5th birthday! And today is also our former Temple City neighbor, Bob Vincent's birthday.

Happy Birthday to my baby girl Sami!

And Chaka, when you get home with your parent's from vacation in AZ, 'Aunt Sue' will bring you cookies!!

Happy Birthday Bob! (with his pretty daughter Laura)

I get a cooking magazine called Cooking Light and in it there was an article about the creamy cooking starters available in the markets now.. What they said was, if you want to make a creamy sauce without the 'cream' and added calories, take a can of Cannellini beans, or any white bean, puree with chicken stock, add in your favorite herbs. This makes a fresh creamy sauce that lightly coats pasta and vegetables keeping the dish light and fresh.

On February 27, two police officers in Santa Cruz California were gunned down by a suspect they were attempting to arrest.
May they RIP. Insanity seems to be the norm anymore. There is too much and it's depressing.
Historically this date....
1877U.S. presidential election, 1876: Just two days before inauguration, the U.S. Congress declares Rutherford B. Hayes the winner of the election even though Samuel J. Tilden had won the popular vote on November 7, 1876.
And births this date include....
1793Sam Houston, American politician, 8th Governor of Tennessee and 7th Governor of Texas (d. 1863)
.... it didn't work out, but I wanted another boy and to name him Sam after Sam Houston because Jerry was born in Texas. As it is, we got our 'Sami'! Ironic on Sam H's birthday! AND he was born on the date of Texas' Independence!

I made 3 videos, each a few seconds, of The Bruise after his tail. He moves so fast, hard to catch him on video..... watch in order....
Now Bruiser, being a polydactyl cat (or "Hemingway" cat) here is a video on Hemingway's former home, a museum now, and all his polydactyl cats..
Breakfast.... leftover couscous with veggies heated with an egg .... OMGOOD!
All I know. Need to wrap birthday presents and head to Sami's party. Going to be ponies there. Have a great Saturday. Ciao.
