Dinner was simple and GOOD.... Brian and 'crew' love the popcorn chicken. I have decided I do too. So, cooked some (actually just heat them).

I made a dipping sauce from mayonnaise, sesame oil, and lemon juice.

Salad was shredded lettuce, grated carrot, and grated beets. Dressing was Ken's Steak House Honey Mustard...

I got the beets at Safeway. They are in the produce section, airtight bag (refrigerate after opening), fresh, cooked, & peeled. Great!

Went shopping at Safeway again. Found the Goya coconut milk so I can make that rice dish. Progresso light soups on sale for $1.25. Fresh basil was there and will make some tomato pesto with that. Fun stuff. Savings at Safeway yesterday was $24!! Sure beats the local 'rip-off market' ! 

Then went to Bill and Jeannie's to see Chaka and take her long overdue birthday cookies! Had wine and chatted. Nice!

When I left yesterday I noticed Frank had fixed our bridge already!!! Awesome Frank!!! Thank you!!!! Here is how it looked damaged...

..... and now.....

Right now there is a constant parade and serenade in the yard!

A couple nights ago Brian contacted me re "Facetime" on my iPad. This is such fun, like skype only free! He was outside and Sami was riding Tucker's two wheel bike, without training wheels! Fun to watch. Then last night I 'facetimed' with my friend Jan up in Vancouver Wa. Great to see her 'face to face' and chat! Facetime is a super invention! Brian and Sami also got a hold of me again last night and Sami has more FUN makeing faces up close! She's silly....... and oh so cute!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

March 13th
National Earmuff Day

(Ha ha...not exactly "ear muffs" !) Ear Muff Day celebrates a warm invention...the ear muff! People in cold climates can really appreciate this day. And, they are ever so thankful to the person who created the ear muff. If you live in Florida, you might not even know what an ear muff is. Ear muffs keep your ears warm, and protect you from ear infections and earaches resulting from icy cold wind and weather. Manufacturers have responded to their popularity with a variety of designs and colors, making one to fit almost anyone's personality. It is really easy to celebrate Ear Muff Day.... just wear your ear muffs!
