Yesterday our Law Enforcement/Fire Luncheon at the golf club for a barbecue. It was a nice day and we sat outside on the porch. I had a barbecued hamburger with pasta salad and a chocolate/peanut butter cookie! OMGOOOD!
I had a nice conversation with a retired Wolf Creek Fire Chief and a retired Napa County Deputy, and a retired Concord PD officer.

I saw a recipe for egg muffins and decided to make some, using my ideas. Spray a muffin or cupcake pan with cooking spray. I mixed 8 eggs with a whisk and about 1/4 cup milk, added in some bacon crumbles, capers for the salt factor, corn I cut off the cob, and some chopped cherry tomatoes. I filled each muffin hole with the mixture. Bake at 375º for 15-20 minutes, until set and golden on top.   

Next time I will, even though I sprayed the pan liberally with cooking spray, use cupcake papers. Hard to clean!
Breakfast... I heated three of the muffins in the micro, when they came out I topped them with Parmesan cheese. Had a bowl of non fat plain Greek yogurt, drizzled with Blue Agave Nectar. OMGOOOD!!!!  

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

October 9th
Fire Prevention Day

Always on October 9th. Fire prevention week is during the week in which  October 9th falls.
According to legend, on October 8, 1871, Mrs. O'Leary was in her barn, milking her cow. The cow kicked over a lamp, which started the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The fire burned for over 27 hours. When it was over,  more than 300 people were killed, 100,000 people were left homeless, and over 17,000 structures were destroyed.
The Great Chicago fire sparked major efforts in fire prevention.  Forty years later, the Fire Marshall's Association of North America(FMANA) held the first Fire Prevention Day. In 1920 , President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Fire Prevention Week.
The Saturday during Fire Prevention Week is Fire Service Recognition Day.
Did You Know? Dalmatians became fire dogs because they were often kept around the horses at fire houses to guard them.
Remember "EDITH", which stand for "Exit Drills In The Home". Today is a good day to have a practice drill.
