Oar Fish ~ Chicken in Enchilada Sauce ~ One Pot Quinoa/Veggie/Sausage Dinner ~ Boss Day

Good 32º frosty full moon morning. Yesterday it was 32º also and the barn roof as well as the pastures were all white...
....and boy that moon lit up the place last night!

"10-16" .. 'pick up prisoner.

Look at this.... a dead Oar Fish was found off Catalina by some snorkelers....

What gets me is all the comments made by stupid dummies about "why did they kill it?" and "it's so wrong to kill" blah blah blah... the fish was DEAD when it was found!!!! Sheesh!


Yesterday was errand day... first off to the dentist (again) to have my pearly whites polished and to chat with Liz my hygienist. We always have a gab fest! Liz reads my blog and Jen had brought Sami in and Liz told her she had seen her picture playing with the race track I gave Tucker for his birthday. Sami's mouth dropped open and the look was "How in the world did you see my picture?" Jen laughed and said, "Liz knows Bobo." (Small town, baby girl!)

I stopped in at the Kitchen Company to drop off Jennifer's dish she had given me soup in to bring home on Sunday. I bought a couple of chocolate bars...


this made by in Seattle      ...  and


this chocolate bar with Rogue Creamery Blue Cheese made by  in Central Point...
and I bought a "garlic twist" I will show you tomorrow.(Thank you Jeannie... birthday money she gave me!!! ♥)

Then to take one of my down comforters to the cleaners, Vogue Cleaners....
and had a football discussion with Kelli. She's a 9er fan. Then I had a short chat with Brian (his office next door to Vogue Cleaners) and Emily......
Then to post office to mail sunglasses to Jack that Brian donated to Jack's band and pick up a package. Had some egg cartons for Leah but she wasn't working yesterday. Back home to a happy kitty and pooch! Bruiser had caught a bird and there were feathers from one end of the porch to the other! Sigh..........

I had some thawed chicken breasts so put them in the crockpot along with a can of enchilada sauce... low for 8 hours... This was one of my friend Edda's ideas and it makes GREAT chicken.... shred it up when done into tortillas, soup, and/or casserole dishes.


Still in the cooking mode I put some "Southern Style" Quinoa that Linda had given me when she visited into the rice cooker...

This quinoa, by Pereg, is "a delicious blend of pre-washed quinoa with smoked paprika, tomato, red bell peppers, and spices." Gluten free and Kosher.
Then I cut up some baby squash and mushrooms and sauteéd them in infused olive oil. Then added in some mozzarella/artichoke/garlic sausage (Costco) and let that all get happy....

I added in the cooked quinoa and some cut up tomatoes.

Bosses Day
Now here is a day that gives you a chance to both tell and show the boss what you really think of him or her. And, it is an opportunity to give your boss the appreciation that he or she truly deserves. So go right ahead and give it to him.....give it to him good! After all, it only comes around once a year.
What Makes a Good Boss? Here are some attributes people say make for the best boss:
  • Fair
  • Honest
  • Understanding
  • Approachable
  • A good communicator

History: The origin of Bosses Day dates back to 1958. Patricia Bays Haroski, an employee at State Farm Insurance Company in Illinois, registered it with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Ms. Haroski chose the date because it was her father's birthday. Who was her boss? ....her father.
