10-9 ~ Marijuana Money ~ Ostriches ~ Slow Cooked Mozzarella Stuffed Meat Balls ~ Sunset ~ 'Dirty Sue' ~ Thursday Night Football

Good 46º clear sunny morning. Hit 93º yesterday late afternoon.
"10-9" = Repeat ... or, "huh?"
Guess what.....
In one week of recreational marijuana sales in Oregon, dispensaries have brought in an estimated $11 million!!!!!

Yesterday morning I ran '5 Miles'... saw activity at PJ and Dave's. It was Dave and Tim aka Tim The Timenator on the roof working. They had removed a skylight and were re-roofing. Haven't seen Tim in a while and he said he quit smoking two years ago and quit drinking. CONGRATULATIONS TIM!!! That is a HUGE accomplishment. 
This is interesting about ostriches...
The ostrich is distinctive in it's appearance, with a long neck and legs, and can run at up to about 43 mph, the fastest land speed of any bird. The bird has just two toes on each foot (most birds have 4), with the nail on the larger, inner toe resembling a hoof. The outer toe has no nail. The reduced number of toes is an adaptation that appears to aid in the running, useful for getting away from predators. The ostrich is the largest living species of bird and lays the largest eggs of any living bird.

This was posted on FB and I NEED to make these!

Cut low moisture mozzarella cheese into 3/4" cubes and store in refrigerator while preparing the meat.
1 pound ground beef
1 pound hot or regular Italian sausage
2 t. salt
1 t. black pepper
1 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 eggs
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup chopped parsley
(Ok, so this is someone's recipe, but whatever your favorite meatball recipe is ... use it!)
Mix all ingredients well and roll into golf ball sized balls. Squish a mozzarella cube into the center and pull the edges of the meatball around it so it's round again. Arrange meatballs in slow cooker and cover with "tomato sauce" (I will use canned pasta sauce or some of my own homemade.
Cook on high for 2- 2½ hours.  For store bought pasta sauce I like Cucina & Amore:

(up here it can be purchased at Gooseberries in GP, Sherm's Food 4 Less, Safeway..) Click on the "where to buy" on the site.)
Sunset yesterday... pictures 1 & 2 about 5:20pm looking SE, 2 & 3 about 5:50 looking west:

Dinner was reruns. Chair, TV, wine. Then I got a text from Jeannie. She was at a liquor store ... found these:
OMG, I love martinis, 'dirty' ones! .... and want some of this stuff! She said it's on Amazon. Found it~! Oh boy oh boy!
Thursday night football scores: (yeah, Brian!)

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

National Submarine, Hoagie, Hero, Grinder Sandwich Day

Submarine Sandwich

Variously called a grinder,hoagie, hero and torpedo in other regions, the submarine or sub has at least two claims to invention, and may have plausibly occurred in both places. One is in Boston at the beginning of World War I, made by a local restaurant that served Navy servicemen stationed at the Charlestown Navy Yard. The bread was a specially baked baguette intended to resemble the hull of the submarines it was named after. Another claim credits Dominic Conti (1874–1954), an Italian immigrant who started Dominic Conti’s Grocery Store on Mill Street in Paterson, New Jersey in 1910, and named the sandwich after seeing a recovered submarine in the Paterson museum Museum Of History in 1918.

Conti’s granddaughter recounts that he was selling traditional Italian sandwiches made on a long crusty roll, filled with cold cuts, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, onions,oil, vinegar, Italian herbs, spices, salt and pepper. The sandwich started with a layer of cheese and ended with a layer of cheese so the bread wouldn’t get soggy. See alsohero and hoagie.

Works with Fleet Week!!!!

I always get rave reviews when dinner stars either meatloaf or meatballs with mozzarella- and pepperoni. Never tried in slow-cooker.

We had a nice sunset last night, also. Lots of pink floating by- like flying flamingos - but you could stand underneath and not worry about what might fall on your head.

Good luck with recreational marijuana.I don't care how much money the government brings in. It leaves me sad that society has made gains in getting drunk drivers and texting off the road- but made it more likely to have drug impaired drivers replace them.

I am still laughing at the Dirty Sue martini fixins! What a crack up! Of course, you must have some of that! :)

How time flies. Years ago when my family and I went to the taping of Home Improvement we were in line to get in. Little Zach Ty Bryan was in the parking lot running his radio control car around. He was such a cutie and now grown up with a wife. Boy I feel old!

Meat balls look and sound yummy!!

Reruns of meatball and meatloaf sandwiches are fabulous too! As for the MaryJane, I am soooo against it. In Colorado they very young are toking up and eating MJ laced treats. Not good!!!!! xo
