Fog-Ice-Clouds-Sun ~ Pasta on Vegetables ~ Gross Chef ~ Late Night Show Hosts - Banana Bread Recipes

Good 29º icy foggy morning. Whoop......

PICTURE of the day........... Awwwww.....sweet doggie!
Yesterday it went from this at 11am  .....

to this at 4pm....

Earlier I ran 5 miles. (LOL, did you read yesterday's blog?) Golf cart for me, run for Dude... took trash to can near road and then fixed PJ's answer machine and fed their fish.

Dinner was chicken pasta parmesan (with white meat chicken, spiral noodles, peppers, and tomatoes, in a cheesy sauce) on top of steamed broccoli/pea pods/carrots/mushrooms/kale .....GOOD! Very filling!!!  

So, after dinner I was watching Entertainment Tonight... they had Wolfgang Puck on, who makes all the food for the Governor's Ball after the Oscars.
He was putting together some salmon and caviar... spooning the caviar on the salmon and pushing it off with his finger. Then he LICKED HIS FINGER! OMG. How gross. 

On top of that... he's been in the US for how many years and still can't pronounce 'vegetables' ... he says "ved-jaaa-taaa-bulls". Come on.

I am at the point that I will be happy when the Olympics are over. None of my favorite programs have been on since they started. Boo hoo...... AND, I an NOT a fan of Jimmy Fallon.
Such a turn off. Nobody can replace Johnny Carson!  

I miss Jay Leno.  
Conan O'Brian was sucky and only lasted a few months. 
Jimmy Kimmel is weird.
So is Craig Ferguson. 
The longer he's on the weirder he gets! And when he pounds on the camera it soooooooooo irritates me. 

And Letterman is just an A** !  
He thinks his white socks are cool. Idiot!!!   So, no late night shows for me. JMHO.

So, guess you could say this was a
   morning!!! LOL. And you know what, if you don't agree with me..... BITE ME!

All I know. Happy Sunday. Nuff said. Ciao.

I so agree about those late night guys. I don't watch any of them but each day I receive an email of a group of their jokes from the night before. I posted so many on FB from Leno but since he left, nothing is funny.

I was honored to have dinner at the Governor's Ballroom and Puck was the chef. Daryl and I were treated to the $1,000 a plate dinner for a Meg Whitman fundraiser. VERY fancy menu and oh so creative. I took photos of the plates.

I agree Puck is an awesome chef, but LICKING HIS FINGER on camera???? If he does it so unconsciously then, you know he does it all the time as he's cooking! UGH.

This is definitely an entertaining post.

Either that dog is so smart he knows his bird breeds or he just flunked retriever-dog 101.

I think it would be wiser and more delicious to bite into one of those muffins than you):-

Wolfgang Puck served my granddaughter her first solid food- he can cook for me anytime.

However he pronounces it, his food is finger-licking good. Just so he doesn't wipe the food off the floor to taste or make a bathroom stop without a stop for water, soap and a good dry before returning to the stove.

Cute picture of the dog. Awww is right.
Your dinner was very creative with all those veges. Looked good.
Yeah for the Tootsie Roll beinging invented. One of my favorites, believe it or not. Love Tootsie Pops too.
I've never been a fan of Wolfgang. Just something about him. His food is probably very good, but, oh well, to each their own I guess.
I agree totally about the late night shows. Gosh, I miss Johnny. As much as they try, there will never be anyone that can take his place.
Good "soap box"!
have a wonderful Sunday and we will chat later. xo

Well, L, if I saw the cook/chef in the kitchen licking his finger, I'd decline food from that place! Don't care how good it is. Best we don't know what goes on in kitchens! S.

Oregon Sue said...

Yes, BFF, that's why we are! The only things we seem to disagree on is different kinds of food.... xo
