Calm Husband? ~ Chicken Roll Ups ~ Bill&Lee Todoran ~ Liz Arredondo Duncan ~ Aidan Duran ~ Dishwasher & Lights ~ Georgia Craig

Good 43º raining morning.

LOL, my friend Erika agreed with me re Vick and sent this...

Thanks Gar Austin (LASD ret) for this......
A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband. Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen. 'Careful,' he said, 'CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my gosh! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my gosh! WHERE are we going to get MOR E BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful. CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the! salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!'
The wife stared at him. 'What in the world is wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?'
The husband calmly replied, 'I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm driving.'

My friend Trish (married to John Bowler LASD ret) sent the following recipe for "Chicken Roll Ups".... sounds great! She said "Oh so good and oh so super easy too." (T, I upped the amount of chicken and the amount of cheese!)

1½ cups cooked chicken breast, chopped or shredded (or thighs) ... good use for leftover chicken....
1 can crescent rolls
1 can cream of chicken soup
½ cup milk
1 cup grated cheese
Preheat oven to 350º. Lightly coat 9x13 pan with cooking spray.
Mix together soup, milk, and cheese. Set aside. Separate crescent rolls into 8 triangles. Top the large part of each triangle with the chicken. Top each crescent roll with 1 T. of the soup mixture. Roll up the crescent rolls. Spread approximately 1/3 cup of the soup mixture in the bottom of the pan. Place crescent tolls on top of soup mixture. Pour remaining soup mixture over rolls. (Top with more cheese!)

Bake 30 minutes, or until bubbly.

Now, if you know me you know I only follow recipes for cakes and pies... baked goods. Never for casseroles etc. You could get creative and add in any number of veggies... your favs... cut up green beans, peas, shredded carrots, broccoli, cauliflower (some of the orange or the green cauliflower would be fun!) ... mushrooms (sauteéd first), creamed corn, salsa.... You could also add chopped crispy bacon to the chicken mixture.

Historically this date....
1930 – Constantinople and Angora change their names to Istanbul and Ankara.
1979 – Operators of Three Mile Island's Unit 2 nuclear reactor outside of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania fail to recognize that a relief valve in the primary coolant system has stuck open following an unexpected shutdown. As a result, enough coolant drains out of the system to allow the core to overheat and partially melt down.

And births this date include...
1899 – August Anheuser Busch, Jr., American brewer and baseball executive (d. 1989)

1905 – Marlin Perkins, American zoologist and television host (d. 1986)

1948 – Dianne Wiest, American actress

1955 – Reba McEntire, American singer and actress

1970 – Vince Vaughn, American actor
He certainly never impressed me!

1975 – Kate Gosselin, American TV personality
(It's all about the money!)


1986 – Lady Gaga, American singer-songwriter and dancer

More like GAG instead of Gaga!

1942- Sandy Todoran Beck's (husband is Jerome, LASD ret)  mom and dad, Bill and Lee, were married this day. Sadly both have passed away. RIP good people! Man, you never left Sandy's mom's house hungry!!!

Liz here with her sister-in-law Susan on Susan's promotion to Sgt for Orange County SO. Congratulations Susan.

2003 - Olga and Jimmy Duran's youngest son Aidan celebrates his special day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AIDAN!!!

Yesterday I went through old photos ... 1984-1989. OM~
Then I had washed dishes in the dishwasher, opened it to take them out and the rubber seal was laying in the dishwasher on the top shelf and hanging down. What? Called Sears and the lady screamed! She had NEVER heard of that before! So, a service guy was to come out yesterday and fix it. He did. Carl arrived about 2pm. He said he had NEVER seen that before either! Anyway, fixed. 

Then about 4pm Jake, my electrician, arrived and put up new lights on the outside of the house. They come on at dusk and go off at sunrise. This gives me a view of the driveway since it's usually so pitch black out there. These are special lights that should last 20 years. I have similar lights on the pump house and each end of the barn. 

Last night I had a long and great conversation with a girl who graduated high school a year before I did, Georgia Craig. She was a beauty and so nice.

Now living in N. Carolina. She made me laugh, "nice place to visit but you wouldn't want to live here!" They moved back there because that is where the grandchildren are.... identical twin boys, 6 years old, I think! Great talking to you Georgia. We'll do it again when you get back home from your California trip!

All I know. Happy TGIF. Nuff said. Bill pay day. UGH. Ciao.

National Something On A Stick Day

So what comes on a stick? Practically anything. The first thing that comes to mind is popsicles and fudgecicles. Hotdogs are poplar on a stick at campfires. There's also corndogs, and shrimp and many Chinese treats. Cocktail wieners and cheese are picked and eaten on a stick(a toothpick). And don't forget those olives in a martini!
You can also get just about anything on a stick when receiving food samples at a store or festival.

I knew you would have some suggestions of what to add to the chicken roll ups. Next time I will add some mixed veggies so it tastes like a pot pie.
Where did you get the pic of them on the blue/white plate?

Strange that happened to your new dishwasher! We had to have the rubber around the door of our Sub Zero frig replaced a few years back. It was not cheap! :(

Always something, huh?
