Barn ~ Squirrel ~ Cliffie ~ Eggplant & Veal Patty ~ Edda ~ My Maggie Girl ~ Bear!

Good 48º morning. Only hit the 80ºs yesterday. Better!

Here are photos of what Chad and Darin were/are doing Thursday...

See all the bird poop .... ugh. At least this will keep them out now!

Jack was here Thursday morning putting out traps for the ground squirrels. Then yesterday when Dude and I were down there at the barn, a ground squirrel was in the trap.... I called All Natural Pest and Jack came and got him yesterday. There apparently is some place he releases them... not in populated areas.


Our good buddy Cliff Kuehl (pronounced 'keel') is celebrating his 83rd birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CLIFFIE!!! ♥  (with his PattyK)

Dinner ... fried/baked eggplant and veal patties....
1 eggplant
2 beaten eggs
dried bread crumbs or Panko mixed with salt and pepper and I used some of the garlic/lemon seasoning too and dried basil
olive oil
marinara sauce
mozzarella sliced or grated
Parmesan cheese
Wash eggplant, cut crosswise into 1/2" slices. Sprinkle salt on both sided of each slice and put in colander to drain excess moisture for about 30 minutes. Dry with paper towels.

Dip in eggs, dredge in crumbs.  Heat oil in heavy skillet, fry eggplant on both sides, drain on paper towels. Spread marinara sauce in baking dish, add eggplant, mozzarella, and Parmesan. Dollop more sauce on top. Bake 350º for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. At the same time I fried some Omaha Steaks Breaded Veal patties..

Awesomely GOOD!!!!

Yesterday afternoon I headed to GP and to Staples and Safeway then to the Laughing Clam for Happy Hour with John & GloW and Edda (my friend from Diamond Bar and sister to GloW). 

Wine is a good price, but Happy Hour on Friday is wayyyyyyyyyyyy too noisy! Anyway, had a good time and fun to catch up with Edda. Been about 3 years since I had seen her. She came up here on the train from LA. Left from Union Station. 

Took two days. She said it was enjoyable, but she didn't sleep. She was one tired girl when she got to Eugene. 

A year ago today, my sweet baby girl Maggie The Poopsie Do passed away at age 15. I still miss her every single day. Such a love. Oh darn, I cry every time I see her picture. Doin' that now!

This morning before the sun even thought of coming over the mountain (about 5:45) I heard a loud noise. Got up and there was this little black bear who had lifted the big trash can on the back porch that was filled with cracked corn and tipped it over and he was inside eating! The flash scared him off!

Knew one was around. Saw bear scat down by the barn the other day....filled with berries! Always something! LOL

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