Jack ~ Football Schedule ~ Batkid ~ Steve and Ellen ~ Baked Eggs ~ Pumpkin Cake

Good 35º football Sunday morning.

Didn't get much rain, maybe 1/10th of an inch, with the "storm" that was predicted. More coming in a day or so.  

Yesterday my grandson Jack was performing with the school band  in a "field show" at Ramona High School....

(Yeppers, you Alex and your mom all look alike!!!!)


I forgot to post the Thursday night football score. Brian was a happy camper, being a Colts fan!!! Today should be interesting... and then there is Monday night!!!

In case you missed the newscast of Batkid in San Francisco... watch this....Thousands turned out to make 5-year-old Miles Scott's wish come true. Miles is battling Leukemia and told the "Make-a-Wish Foundation" that he wanted to be Batman. The City by the Bay was transformed into Gotham City, where Miles busted a bank robbery, caught the Riddler and got the key to the city. Scott Pelley reports.
Thanks to Jen's brother Jimmy Schumacher for the link!

Today is a birthday of an "old" friend.... Wilsonite Steve Geon (LAPD ret) ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE!

(sorry, only picture I had....)

Yesterday was another Wilsonite's birthday... Ellen (Naugle) Pantalone. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY ELLEN! Ellen was my next door neighbor on Stockbridge ... and married the 'boy across the street' !

The new coffee creamer I got is YUMMMMMY!!! Eggnog Latte!

and if you like peanut butter
as much as I do then you will understand why I also added in some peanut butter syrup!



Historically this date...
1968 – Viewers of the Raiders–Jets football game in the eastern United States are denied the opportunity to watch its exciting finish when NBC broadcasts Heidi instead, prompting changes to sports broadcasting in the U.S.
.............boy howdy, wouldn't have wanted to be near any Jets or Raiders fans at that moment!
And births this date include....
1925 – Rock Hudson, American actor (d. 1985)
I adored his movies!!! What a beautiful charming man.
1942 – Martin Scorsese, American film director
.... another one of those Hollywood folks married 5 times!
1943Lauren Hutton, American actress
She has never married but had a 27-year-long relationship with her manager Bob Williamson, who squandered some $13 million of her money.
1944 – Danny DeVito, American actor
OMG he was in a dream I had yesterday morning!!!!! And, no, it wasn't anything sexy, he was his strange little self! I told Jeannie and Brian about it. I can't believe this. Weird.
1949John Boehner, American politician
1951 – Dean Paul Martin, American singer and actor (d. 1987)
..........sad death.
Yesterday I was in a cooking/experimenting mode... I saw where Trish had posted on FB about baking eggs instead of boiling them. I took 3 eggs (extra large) put them in a muffin tin
baked them at 325º for 30 minutes, then put them in ice water for about 10 minutes
PERFECT! They peeled sooooooooo easy. Yoke was done to perfection! What a great idea! I will never boil eggs again!

Then I made a cake. The recipe I read said 1 box of yellow cake mix and 1 can of pumpkin 15oz. Two ingredients!
I thought it needed something else so added 1/3 cup soft butter and 3 eggs.
Beat the eggs with a fork, put all ingredients in mixing bowl and mix on medium a couple of minutes. Spray bundt pan with cooking spray, pour in cake mix, bake in pre-heated 350º oven for 30-35 minutes .. until top springs back when you press your finger on it. YUMMMMMMMM!!!!

PERFECT!!!! OMG it's sooooooooooooooooooo good!!!! Fluffy and just sinful!  Going to make this again using spice cake mix!
All I know. Happy Sunday. Nuff said. Ciao.
