Frozen ~ Sunday Football ~ James ~ Mousse Day

Good 27º EVERYTHING frozen morning! Yikes.

What a difference in one day by 20 degrees. Slam bam!
Sunset last night.........
I have been working on photos for the calendars I am making this year. I have to pull teeth to get family and certain other people to send me the pictures. It is time consuming to put these together and some photos need "touching up".  So, I worked on those and paid bills yesterday. Whooppeeeee.... excitement.

National Mousse Day

Some good recipes here:

Celebrate National Mousse Day! Mousse is a divine dessert made from egg whites and cream. Did you know that “mousse” is the French word for “foam”? It’s a fitting name for this light, fluffy, and decadent confection!
Chocolate mousse was a specialty in French restaurants during the 1800s, but now it can be found in restaurants and households worldwide. Popular variations include different kinds of chocolate, nut, and fruit flavors.

Here are today’s five thing to know about Mousse:

  1. The word mousse is French and translates as “froth” or “foam.”
  2. Cold dessert mousses are often poured into decorative glasses and garnished with fruit, sweet sauces, or whipped cream.
  3. Savory mousses can be made from fish, shellfish, meat, foie gras, etc.
  4. There are three key constituents to a mousse: base, binder, and aerator.
  5. They may be hot or cold and are often squeezed through a piping bag onto some kind of platform to be used as hors d’oeuvres.

Cards for Soldiers ~ Tzatziki Dip ~ Christmas Lights Up ~ Micol

Good 45º cloudy morning. So far with this storm we've gotten 1" of rain. No more predicted until Tuesday.

Yesterday morning 7am...
and... then 2pm.... raining hard!

If someone sends you an email to send Christmas cards to wounded soldiers in care of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington DC it's false. That hospital closed in 2011. You can send cards through your local Red Cross. I am going to do some investigation as to where cards can be sent. Will get back to you on this.
Here is the recipe for the Greek Tzatziki Dip:
1 hothouse cucumber, cut ends off, scrape out seeds, and grate with box grater. Squeeze out most of the moisture.

Mix in 14 oz of Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup sour cream, 2 T. lemon juice, 1 T. white wine vinegar (I used honey balsamic), 1 T. minced fresh dill (I used dried), 1½ t. minced garlic, 2 t. Kosher salt and ½ t. fresh ground black pepper. Mix well. Serve room temp or cold. Store in sealed container for up to 1 week. Makes 3 cups. YUMMMMY!!!!
I got my Christmas lights up yesterday (in the rain!) .....................

Today is a birthday of a sweet friend, Micol Klamm.

National Square Dance Day

Here's a chance to get out and "Dosey Do" with your partner. It's Square Dance Day!
English, Irish, and Scottish settlers brought square dancing to the U.S. As it evolved in the U.S., a caller was added, to help dancers stay in step. It remains popular among southern and western rural areas, and with senior citizens.
Couples square dance in circles or square formations. It's lively and quick, and lots of fun.
Square Dancing is both fun, and great exercise. Medical sites and journals speaks to its health benefits for people of all ages.
