Weather ~ Cat/Dog Video ~ Annalee & Led ~ Barbetta ~ Soup Becomes Pasta Dish ~ Roasted Salmon ~ Sunday Football ~ Bouillabaisse vs Cioppino

Good foggy 35º morning with a "chance" of sprinkles...

The sun did actually come out yesterday for a little while! I got a good dose of Vitamin D!

Fortunately for my friends in So. Cal who live in the Glendora area where evacuations were in effect due to flooding, didn't have to make a run for it. Linda (Junker) DeMarco and Linda (Kretzinger) Price are safe and sound!

Friend Bob Klamm posted this on his FB page. This is very cute ... and the reason, since I have a cat, why I don't have a Christmas tree!

Today is the special anniversary of special people. My dear high school pal Annalee (Carlin) and her hubby Led Fortini are celebrating their 46th Wedding Anniversary! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!!

(Anne and Led watching their granddaughter..)
Today is also another high school pal's special day... Barbetta (Hanson) Suttles is celebrating her birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARBETTA!!!! You are still cute as ever!

Yesterday I got the cleaning bug and cleaned out a cupboard in the kitchen. 4 bags full got tossed! Yeah!
Then I decided to make some soup with a package I found in the cupboard... Harry & David's Tuscan Chicken and Bean soup. It calls for chicken breast, so I used canned chicken, chicken stock, and diced tomatoes along with the beans and spices in the soup mix. 

I also found a small packet of tiny pasta shells, so in they went too. Put all in crockpot. Let cook for a few hours then found a box almost empty of mini spaghetti so added that in. Thickened it up a lot. Made a GREAT side dish instead of soup.
Had a large salmon fillet so mixed mayonnaise with parmesan cheese and slathered that on top.

Baked 375º for 30 minutes. (less if the fillet is thin)

Traditional Marseille Bouillabaisse recipe:
Jerry and my favorite place to get cioppino in San Fran was at Scoma's on Fisherman's Wharf. OMGOOOOOOOOOD!!
