Gas Station Safety ~ TBT ~ Meatballs & Veggie Stew

Good 30º frozen foggy morning.


This is interesting... especially if you live in California or any other state where you have to pump your own gasoline (not here in Oregon).... This video demonstrates what "sliders" do.. how they steal your purse and/or valuables you leave in your car when you are pumping gas... (Thanks Ellen Naugle Pantalone... Wilson S'62, for this good information)

Remember the other day the PICTURE of the day was canned Road Kill. Well, I wrote the company asking them if they still make it... and got this hilarious response back:
"Sue-
We still cook up some now and then... it's my Granny's secret recipe so i can't tell you what's in it but we do put the ingredients on the label....
We ship it but the cost of shipping gets pricey. One can costs $2 plus shipping and we have two other flavors; Fish Assholes and Pickled Porcupine Peckers. We do have a 4 can min.
Have a nice day!!!

Dinner last night was a concoction .... some of Costco's chicken/garlic/mozzarella meatballs... sauteéd in olive oil and then put in the crockpot on 'warm'.

Then I cooked some garlic fettuccine in very sea salty and garlicky water...
Next I chopped up some mini squash, mushrooms, and little haricot verts (green beans)...
I sauteéd the mushrooms and squash in olive oil with garlic seasoning, added in the green beans and some broccoli slaw... cooked til slightly tender, added in the fettuccine....

I put all in the crockpot with the meatballs.... and added in Progresso cooking starter.. creamy Parmesan basil...
Absolutely DELISH!!!!


... and all the while I was cooking, Mr. Bruise was keeping an eye on me!



Good news is that my computer is done. Turk worked miracles ... again! Bad news is I have to wait for the plumber to unclog my sink. Hopefully I can pick up Hal (computer)later.


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