Rain! ~ Daylight Savings ~ Marion's Gourmet Tuna Casserole ~ Leah Ike Virginia Wendy Jan&Ben ~ Crab Recipes

Good 51º POURING rain morning. So far since last night whenever this storm started, we've gotten 1¼ inches!!! HOLY MOLEY. The creeks a risin!!!

I hope you changed your clocks ... or you are going to be late for church!

Here's a recipe my sister Marion sent to me in 1999. GOOD!!! I cook like she did, I make up recipes as I go along... This she called
Marion's Gourmet Tuna Casserole

1 large can water packed tuna, drained and forked into small pieces
1 bag egg noodles
1 cup sour cream
1/2 pkg baby spinach leaves
30 small mushrooms, crispy fried in olive oil
1 can cream of mushroom soup with garlic
corn bread stuffing
cube butter

Spray cooking spray in casserole dish.
Cook and drain noodles.
Mix sour cream, tuna, fried mushrooms, and spinach
Place half the noodles in the baking dish
Spread half the tuna mixture on top
Drop by spoonfuls half of the mushroom soup
Repeat layers
Top with stuffing mix, enough to cover
Melt butter and drizzle over stuffing.
Bake 350º 35-45 minutes...until bubbly.

This could be made with canned salmon, or even canned chicken.

Historically this date...
1842 – The first documented discovery of gold in California occurs at Rancho San Francisco, six years before the California Gold Rush.

1916 – Pancho Villa leads nearly 500 Mexican raiders in an attack against Columbus, New Mexico.
This picture was taken in 1910 in Canena Mexico. These are Pancho Villa's men who came to my grandparents home and told them since they weren't Mexican citizens they must leave. My Mother on the left with some kind of bandage on her head, my Uncle Lloyd in the middle, and my Aunt Agnes on the right.

1945 – The Bombing of Tokyo by the United States Army Air Forces began, one of the most destructive bombing raids in history.

1959 – The Barbie doll makes its debut at the American International Toy Fair in New York.

2011 – Space Shuttle Discovery makes its final landing after 39 flights.

And births this date include...
1902 – Will Geer, American actor (d. 1978)

1921 – Carl Betz, American actor (d. 1978)

This from Kenny....
The Dept of Defense briefed the President this morning. They told President Obama that 2 Brazilian soldiers were killed in Afghanistan . .

To everyone's surprise, he collapsed onto his desk, head in his hands, visibly shaken, almost in tears.

Finally, he composed himself and asked, 'Just how many is a brazilian?'

This is not surprising, since he obviously has no understanding of
billion or trillion either.
Ok, enough frivolity. Happy Sunday, Daylight Savings Time. Nuff said. Ciao.
