Save America ~ Football Schedule ~ Stir-fry on Rice ~ Dishwasher! ~ Scrapple

Good 42º gonna be a cloudy day again morning.

This came from my friend Ann Ramirez (LASD ret) .... good info here... and if we all adhere to buying USA then it might just work out....


Tomorrow's schedule and Monday night...
My Patriots have a bye and will play on the 18th. Monday night football. As for the game between the Raiders and the Giants...I hope they both lose!!!!!


Thinking up new things for dinner is fun. I took some Mexican Infused (Uncle Ben's) rice and cooked that in the rice cooker.
Then I cut up veggies (green beans, mini squashes, grape tomatoes) and some previously cooked chicken thighs...
I heated a pan and added olive oil and sauteéd everything.

...adding in some garlic powder, sea salt, fresh ground pepper... toss and sauté for 2-3 min, put on lid and let soften...
Serve on the rice....    OMGOOD!!!

Yesterday I got my new dishwasher. Have been without for several years. Finally did it! Out with the old...
It was put on the porch. On the top were mouse droppings. (Not unusual in the country.... they like to get in where the insulation is! There was also a dead mouse under it when he pulled it out. ICK.) So, the Bruise was laying on the porch and I said, "Hey, can you smell those mouse droppings?" This cat ... OMG, he stood up, looked up, and then jumped on tope of the dishwasher!! I guess I'm going to have to be careful if he can understand what I say!!!!
.... and in with the new!

November 9th
National Scrapple Day
It's dictionary defined as "cornmeal mush made with the meat and broth of pork, seasoned with onions, spices and herbs and shaped into loaves for slicing and frying." The word, scrapple originates from "scrap" or "scrappy" meaning made up of odds and ends for that's exactly what it is—boiled, ground leftover pig scraps with cornmeal and spices thrown in. Scrapple lovers think of it as food for the gods. Anti-scrapplers consider it a culinary abomination.
