Painted Photography ~ Lunch In A Jar ~ LE/Fire Lunch ~ Shark

Good 36ยบ tad warmer than yesterday morning!

This is interesting.... the photo of "Tonnie" was taken by my friend Debbie Flores..... the painting of Tonnie was done by Donna Walsh.....
Notice ... there is a gun by her hand in the painting! Beautiful work, Donna!


This is pretty good. From George Bachmeier.... men should always let women talk first. The end is priceless. The babe is terminally beeeotchy.
This from my friend PatC. What a great idea. Lunch in a jar!
Takes up little space, easy to make and transport. From BOTTOM to TOP: Dressing, shredded carrots, sunflower seeds, hard boiled eggs, baby spinach or lettuce.
1. Arrange ingredients in large Mason jar. 2. Store in fridge for at least a week. 3. When ready to eat, shake jar, and pour out onto plate.
You can make any arrangement you want .. add red onion, cucumbers, radishes, peppers, etc. Always remember to put the dressing on the bottom and the lettuce on the top. If you do make several and save for the week, vacuum seal the jars!

The Law Enforcement/Fire lunch yesterday was fun. I got there a tad early and the room was empty (all the guys were down in the bar having their bloodies! You can see mine sitting on the table.....)
The food is always good. I had the "Big Bird" which is turkey, bacon, mozzarella cheese ... grilled, with onion rings that are awesome! I was taking a picture of my lunch when Dale reached over and was stealing an onion ring!
Bill had prime rib.... as Rufus and Bob looked on...
Really, Jeannie, he only ate a little and I'm sure he'll be ready for the dinner you slaved to make for him!
BTW, had a note from a friend, Ruth, who has a Shark Vacuum also and Shelly, her husband LOVES it! I have to say, I looked at the bedroom carpet yesterday, it's a dark green and had been vacuumed 4 days earlier...Looked clean to me. I fired up the Shark and OMG the dirt and animal hair that came off that carpet blew me away!
All I know. Haircut day. Nuff said. Happy Thursday. Ciao.

National Truffles Day

On the one hand, truffles are an edible fungus, a hard-to-grow delicacy that have been called 'the diamond of the kitchen.' On the other hand, truffles are chocolate bon-bons, called truffles because of their rounded resemblance to the natural kind. Both are celebrated on National Truffles Day, the sweets and the mushroomy kind.
