Dude! ~ Tucker's Baseball Game ~ Trottole w/ Veggie Meatballs in Alfredo/Pesto Sauce

Good 35º clear sunny morning. Yesterday we topped at 73º! WOW. Nice.

Old comedians liked to tell clean jokes. Here is an oldie but a goodie:

I just got back from a pleasure trip. I took my mother-in-law to the airport.


Historically this date...

1934 – The "Surgeon's Photograph", the most famous photo allegedly showing the Loch Ness Monster, is published in the Daily Mail (in 1999, it is revealed to be a hoax).

1952Secretary's Day (now Administrative Professionals' Day) is first celebrated.


And births this date include....

1915 – Anthony Quinn, Mexican-American actor (d. 2001)


1926 – HM Elizabeth II, Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.


1935Charles Grodin, American actor


1951Tony Danza, American actor


Yesterday I headed to Tucker's baseball game about 1:30. When I returned home about 4:30 I found out that Dude was on his way down our road looking for me about 10 minutes after I left. Thank God Frank and Cindy were outside and saw him. Frank called him but he beat it back this way. This happened twice. Then Frank and his grandson Evan got on their quad and came up here. Dude was near the barn and headed to the gate that I though I had fixed with a bungee cord. Not sure if that's how he got out, but pretty sure. Will work on that gate today. Frank let him in, only after Dude licked Evan's face from chin to hair in one fell swoop! Dude, Maggie, and Bruiser were waiting for me when I returned. So grateful to Frank, or who knows what would have happened to Dude if he had gotten to the road!


Tucker's team, Texas Rangers, played the Grants Pass Scrappers. Sadly we lost 11-7 but it was well fought and Tucker was awesome! Here 'coach' is giving them a pep talk. It was a good one!


Sami showing off her "tattoos" Bobo brought her....

..........and Mom and Brian.......


Tucker had hit the ball and made it to 1st base, then to second, then to third, and was stealing home....

SLIDE!!!!!!! Yes. SAFE!

Doing his thing.... catching....


....and in the outfield, taking a break while a new pitcher warms up, with Dad!


I came home and got the news of Dude's escape, chatted with friends, and made dinner.... while the Bruiser kept an eye on the dogs from his perch.... and Dude kept and eye on me!


Dinner was a new pasta, called Trottole (When you pronounce this use your best Italian accent, hold your right hand up, fingers together and say "Traa-toe-lay" ! Right Mike?)
( Click here: Pasta find — trottole — and what’s your favorite pasta shape? | Eats Blog ) Really really good. Can be found at Target. First I sauteéd some veggie meatballs (Costco) in olive oil, along with grated garlic, canned drained artichoke heart quarters, sweet peppers, and tomatoes.


Meanwhile cooking the pasta....


To the pan add the drained pasta, Alfredo sauce, pesto, stir well, add grated cheese (I used yellow/white but Parmesan would be great). OMGOOOOOD!!!


All I know. Sunny Sunday. Enjoy your day, unless of course you are clearing your property of trees and branches and having a ginormous humongous burn pile and working your little tushie off again.... like you did yesterday! Ciao.
