Yesterday..... the wind was blowing hard.... leaves falling everywhere...

The clouds were also blowing at a high rate... these 4 pictures all taken 1 minute apart...




About 4:45 I went out to take a picture of the sunset and here was a whole gaggle of geese!

... and the beautiful sunset.....

 
Dinner... canned chicken, Tabouli,  mushrooms, artichoke hearts, olives, roasted garlic ... clikc here for information:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabbouleh

The Tabouli is put in the pan with olive oil and hot water and stir and let sit for 10 minutes. Then I added in all the other ingredients, stirred, and heated through....


To serve I topped it with mozzarella and parmesan cheeses..

YUMMMMMM!!!!

Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day is today.
What's that in the back of the refrigerator!? I don't want to find out. Don't open it...... the odor may overwhelm you!!! Hold your breath, scrunch your nose if you must, and get to the task.
Everything in your refrigerator was once a fresh, healthy food, ready for your consumption. It may have been a tasty leftover, intended for later enjoyment. Unfortunately, over the course of weeks or more, things get pushed to the back of the refrigerator and slowly transform into something impossible to identify.
We've all run across items in the refrigerator that once were tasty food, But, now, they are some dried out, mold covered nasty, that you remove and dispose of at arms length.
Who wins the prize for the worst refrigerator surprises? Most often, it's workplace refrigerators.
Use this day to clean out your refrigerator, top to bottom. When it comes to food safety, we fall back to the old saying " When in doubt, throw it out!"
