To The Point ~ Birds of Paradise ~ Rerun Corned Beef ~ Dips

Good 24º morning. A minute ago it was 23º. Wow, warming up! Pretty clouds yesterday afternoon..... we're supposed to warm way up to the 60ºs today and tomorrow.

My cold has eased up a bit. LOVE Progresso 'Lite' soup for a quick, easy, low calorie, chickeny, meal! That, and of course hot Scotch Whiskey and honey for that soothing coughing remedy! A 'warm all over' feeling too! No coughing at night, which is a blessing. The Zicam still seems to be working! Still stayin' in and keeping away from people. More soup, my chair, movies, and hot tea with lemon!

Got this from Erika... so to the point and right on all counts!

Got this link from George Bachmeier (LASD ret)..fascinating how these birds change appearance!

Pretty and soft looking when she was young... then the tough look and those eyebrows!

       .....he was always just too odd for my taste!

1937Craig Breedlove, American land speed record holder

Yesterday I took the leftover corned beef and made paté. I put it in the little mini food chopper and mixed in mayonnaise and horseradish. The second batch I added ranch dressing. Spread it on toast and it's MAGNIFIQUE!


I think today I'll soak some dried chickpeas and make some hummus ... a couple different flavors .... good for dipping fresh vegetables! See, the cold is better and food is on my mind! LOL.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday! Ciao.

National Chip and Dip Day
As if snackers of the world needed an excuse to indulge in the salty goodness of potato or tortilla chips along with their favorite dip, National Chip and Dip Day puts the official seal of approval on your guilty pleasure, if for but one day.

Here are a bunch of dip recipes....some sound so HEAVENLY!

National Melba Toast Day

Named for a famous 1890s Australian opera singer and invented by noted French chef Auguste Escoffier, melba toast has been served as a snack, a dietetic food and to teething babies. While Dame Nellie Melba may not have any holidays named after her here in North America, her name lives on during National Melba Toast Day!
