Temps ~ Sky ~ Sunset ~ Corn Casserole ~ Funnies ~ Memories of LA


Good 60º clear sunny morning.
93º at 1pm.
96º at 2pm
97.5 at 2:30
98.9º 2:34
99.13º  2:35
101.3º 2:50
At 3:30 the sky was clouding up.... to the East it was dark and to the South not as gloomy...

And last night about 8 pm we had the most brilliant colorful sunset! In the distance to the east I did hear a little thunder.

I posted this in 2011.... thought some of you needed to see this.... sooooooooooooo easy and soooooooooooooo good!
Ok, as I said before I am not a big fan of Paula Deen, but this recipe of hers I got in 2003 and have made it a lot and it's GREAT!
Corn Casserole
1 - 15¼ oz can whole kernel corn, drained 
1 - 14¾ oz can cream-style corn
1 - 8 oz pkg corn muffin mix (Jiffy)
1 cup sour cream
1 stick butter - melted
1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350º
In large bowl mix all ingredients except cheese. Pour into casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray or greased with butter. Bake 45 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and top with cheese. Return to oven for 5-10 minutes, until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes and serve warm.
Wayne Low (LASD Motors ret) sent the following funnies:
A bookseller conducting a market survey asked a woman – “Which book has helped you most in your life?”
The woman replied – “My husband’s cheque book !!”
A prospective husband in a book store asked “Do you have a book called, ‘Husband – the Master of the House’?
Sales Girl : “Sir, Fiction and Comics are on the 1st floor!”.

Lunch yesterday... low fat cottage topped with blackberries and a hard boiled egg. YUMMMM!
See.. Vivia, cottage cheese and egg for protein! :o)

A while back Brian was in the barn looking for tools and he brought this box up to the house. I finally went through it. Lots of stuff Brian and Kristen wrote to my parents and pictures. This box is an old Bullocks Christmas box, dated 1963.

I spent quite some time going through things in it. Scanning photos, etc. Now I have two big envelopes, one for Kristen and one for Brian!

Yesterday an email from Diamond Bar friend, Edda, she talked about memory lane... Alvera Street, Knott's Chicken, Micky D's, Newport and Balboa Fun Zone. I LOVED Olvera Street and the taquitos at the first vender stand at the entrance.

Then there was Philippe's across from the Terminal Annex Post Office.
French Dip sandwiches to die for!!!

Daddy worked at the Terminal Annex Post Office ...

which is down the street from Union Station, which is across the street from Olavera Street...

Oh so many memories!!
Later it was TV and reruns for dinner.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

Hershey bars. What wonderful children we could be if we promised our parents to be good- and followed through.

The corn casserole is even better if you stir in some drained, canned chilies. Mom used to serve it on holidays as a side dish when ham was the main course.

Our weather was absolutely perfect yesterday. It is July- and the air conditioner wasn't needed- YES!

Oregon Sue said...

Yes, L, the chilis sound great! Guess I will have to make some soon! And wow, no AC! Good for you. xo

Haha - I was just going to say that I use almost the same exact recipe, but I put diced green chilis and diced jalapeños, our family likes everything spicy and I don't top with cheese. I made it Monday night to go with dinner for my Dad.

Also, love the Bullocks box. So glad that was found and you got to go through it to pass on to the kids.

I sure hope your weather cools down, that is way too HOT!!
