Yesterday the septic guys, Josh and Matt, came by and fixed the leak in my septic pipe.

The Bruise was checking it out....

Hmmmm.... left me the broken pipe. Like I want to touch that!

Oh well, I can put on rubber gloves and drop it in the trash can. At least it's fixed. No more disgusting "sewer" smell!!!

Ok, now that's out of the way... how about dinner last night..
Salmon, trottole pasta, mushrooms, chives, olives, Safeway's Lemon Butter Simmer Sauce, artichoke hearts in oil...
I reconstituted the dried mushrooms, drained and dried them... then sauteéd them in some of the artichoke oil...

Then I sauteéd the artichoke hearts with the cut up salmon in more of the artichoke oil... added in the pasta, the lemon butter simmer sauce, olives and chives.

This sauce is also GREAT in a slow cooker... There are several flavors.... Mandarin Orange, Lemon Butter, and Sesame Ginger. I think they also have a barbecue flavor too...

All I know. Happy Valentine's TGIF Day. Nuff said. Ciao.

I was at Walmart yesterday and they were filling up the shelves with Valentine goodies. It occurred to me that they should have done that weeks ago! Strange! Didn't see any Trojan's tho! What a HOOT!!

Kev and Deb told us our baby girl was conceived on this night! :)

Lucky you all getting rain! Enjoy!!
Great advertising for Brian and he is oh so cute! Happy Birthday Valentine guy!
