1968 – Rachael Ray, American chef and television personality
(....if only she could keep her open palms in her pockets instead of waving them all over and in front of her face when she's talking and brushing back her hair! But, I guess it's impossible since she's Italian, but also she NEVER stops talking. Even interrupting special guest (all guests!) Tom Selleck! She cooks great, but wish she'd shut up and keep her hands DOWN! Also, she needs to quit saying (in lyrical style) "I know.")

Yesterday afternoon I made taquitos. Warm corn tortillas on a dishtowel in the micro, cover when warm, roll raw ground hamburger (or chicken or turkey or sausage) into tortillas. I added in some onion and cilantro. Fry over med high heat until lightly browned on outside. Stack in warm crockpot if transporting or eating later.






I made Dee's salsa mixed with grated cheese for taquito dipping. So good!! Mix 1 jar salsa with equal (or more) amount of cheese.


Guacamole with finely diced tomato, lemon/garlic seasoning, sea salt and pepper. I was very unhappy with the avocados I got at Ray's. 2/3 of each was ok, but the rest was brown and with lots of stringy stuff. ICK!




Then headed to GloW and Johns place at Jump Off Joe Creek.


This is GloW and John's pup Jackie. Sweet boy!


GloW made yummy rice. Edda made great carnitas. We put them in warm tortillas. 

We had wine and chatted. NICE afternoon! Thanks guys!


I am experimenting with WD-40 and the bear. I sprayed the cans I keep the birdseed etc in and we didn't have a return visit from the bear as of yet. Since bugs, rats, mice, skunks don't like the smell of WD-40 and it keeps them away, I'm hoping this will also work with Mr. Bear!

 
OMG PICTURE of the day............. (look closely!)

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