Rain ~ Luncheon ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Humans as Cats ~ Sue's Vodka Sauce

Good 48º very dark cloudy raining morning. Last night it started raining BUCKETS and the wind was HOWLING! Wow. Did that on and off all night. The rain gauge shows we got 1/2".

The radar over head doesn't show as much possibility for that kind of rain today, but it's comin' down now!

Yesterday I went tot he Law Enforcement/Fire luncheon at the Elks.

Had a great time chatting with the LASD folks. (Riffle, Allgoods, Horne, Yellin, Ray, Schieber) Some will join us back at the Elks for the St. Pat's dinner on the 15th ... for Eric's famous corned beef and cabbage. Bought my tickets yesterday. Then Dee showed up and we had a couple glasses of wine down in the lounge. Great to see her and see she's getting well from her surgery. Girl, you are looking good!! Tammy and Paul headed to the movies to see Anchorman 2.

Sue's Vodka Sauce

1 quart simple marinara sauce
1 cup vodka
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Simmer tomato sauce and vodka in large heavy skillet over low heat until sauce reduces by about 1/4, stirring often, about 20 minutes.
Stir in cream and simmer over low heat until sauce is heated through. Stir in Parmesan cheese until well blended. Serve over your favorite pasta, use as a pizza sauce, mix with cooked meatballs for an awesome sandwich... etc...

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

Yeah for Dee!!!!! So glad she is back on the scene. Missed you. Sorry I couldn't join you yesterday. Next time.

I had to go to bunco last night so for a quick and easy dinner I fixed a Digiorno pizza. Second time we've had one. I must say it is the best frozen pizza I have ever had! Thick puffy crust and oh so good! Better than many delivered ones we've had. They will become a staple in my freezer!
