Fall Coming? ~ Edda ~ No Cook Recipes ~ Becky's Tuna Jalapeños ~ First 3 Now 4

Good cloudy 50º morning.

Yeah, held it in the 80ºs yesterday. 3pm and only 88º.

The last day of August. Hard to believe. This month, even with lots of activities, seemed to move very slow. I think it was all the heat, smoke, and daily humidity. Hope it passes soon. I know, all my 'summer heat sun loving' friends don't want this particular season to leave, but I do! Moved to Oregon for the seasons and rain. Haven't had much rain for the past two years. I only really like 3 of the seasons. Enough...

Today is a special birthday... my friend Edda, visiting up here from Diamond Bar, Ca. HAPPY BIRTHDAY EDDA!!! xo 

Here are some great no cook recipes from Sunset:

1422 – King Henry V of England dies of dysentery while in France. His son, Henry VIbecomes King of England at the age of 9 months

1864 – During the American Civil WarUnion forces led by General William T. Shermanlaunch an assault on Atlanta, Georgia.

1986 – Aeroméxico Flight 498 collides with a Piper PA-28 over CerritosCalifornia, killing 67 in the air and 15 on the ground.

..... that was one of those unbelievable events when you heard it and had to shake your head... "is that possible?"

And births this date include.....
1903 – Arthur Godfrey, American television host (d. 1983)

"Hawai-ya, Hawai-ya, Hawai-ya?"

1924 – Buddy Hackett, American actor and comedian (d. 2003)

1928 – James Coburn, American actor (d.2002)

1945 – Itzhak Perlman, Israeli violinist

He's just AMAZING!

1949 – Richard Gere, American actor

Mr. Gerbil!

My high school pal Greg Lundell replied to the blog with the Marinated Peppers and Tuna. He said his wife Becky makes a great appetizer using jalapeños. First she mixes mayonnaise and tuna. Then she cuts the jalapeños lengthwise and removes the membrane and seeds. Then she stuffs each half with the tuna mixture. Serve with some kind of fabulous crackers. 
Another recipe for this I saw they added in some whipped cream cheese, a few spoonfuls of taco seasoning, and some grated cheese. Jalapenos stuffed with tuna is supposedly a traditional Mexican recipe. Never heard of it before. Will try soon!

And I thought there were only 3 !!
(Thanks Pat Reardon, LASD ret., for this!!!!)

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