Philippines Typhoon ~ USMC Birthday ~ Brad's Fox ~ Chicken/Veggie Crockpot Soup

Good 41º very foggy morning. Cloudy til Tuesday and then a "chance" of rain.

My step-son Aaron's wife Marie is from the Philippines. Her family is all there. Worried, I talked to Marie last night.  She told me the family all lives in a mountainous valley away from the coast and they are all OK! Yes!
Such tragedy, the worst typhoon to reach land and the estimate of death is 10,000 already.

Unbelievable. Prayers for those people.

This is great..... a friend on Catalina Island, Brad Foote, posted this on his FB page... He said"New backyard came with a chase toy for the dog"   ... LOL, Mr. Fox up a tree.

....and yes, Virginia, foxes can climb trees!


Dinner was the leftover stir-fry veggies

and the rice (added in another 1/2 cup of raw rice) made into a soup. I put them in the crockpot along with a carton and a half of chicken stock. Added in chives, garlic, bacon salt, and ground pepper. Then added in a bunch of broccoli and some previously cooked chicken thighs. Let it cook on low for a couple hours. Then added in the Philly Cooking Cream.... some American cheese and some mozzarella cheese. OMGOOD!!!!!
