Good 53º rainy drizzly morning.
PICTURE of the day....
1951 my sister Marion (standing, 3rd from left) and her Wilson High Lettergirls ... (I have her sweater tucked away in a cedar chest!)
Lots of turkeys out and about yesterday...
...and of course while I was taking pictures I was being observed by the Bruise and the Dude!
Hey Mom, whatcha doin'? Huh? Huh? Huh?
Here is the Smilebox I made of our day Sunday at Jennifer's...
Today is my friend Jan Esquivel's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAN!!! She is the former President of our JCRW.
Dinner last night was a combo... Spam (don't make that face!) There are several of their flavors I like:
So, last night I chose the black pepper....
I diced the Spam, heated some oil, added the Spam and some of the lentil veggie salad Jennifer gave me to take home. Heated that with some Mandarin Orange cooking sauce, filled a dish with baby spinach, and topped that with the Spam mixture...
I also added some of the stuffed tomatoes Dee gave me. OMGOOD!!!!

National Cherries Jubilee Day
National Cherries Jubilee Day will make cherry lovers jubilant. If you enjoy cherries, you must absolutely love this day. Cherries Jubilee is easy to make. All you need is a can of cherry pie filling, some cognac (or brandy) and vanilla ice cream.
1 can cherry pie filling
1/4 cup liquor, warmed
1 pint vanilla ice cream
In a skillet, heat cherries over moderate heat to just warm through. Pour in warmed liqueur, then flame the pan to burn off alcohol. Remove cherries from heat. Scoop vanilla ice cream into large cocktail glasses or dessert dishes and spoon cherries down over ice cream.
