Clouds ~ 10-8 ~ Tucker ~ BEST Scrambled Eggs ~ Crows ~ Parrot Story ~ UCC Shooter ~ TBT ~ Rick Fetterling ~ Sour Cream & Buttermilk Powder ~ Fluffernutter

Good 51º cloudy morning. Clouds still and no chance of rain. Yesterday stayed cloudy all day... here is 3pm and the temp was 82º:

"10-8" = in service (53 is 10-8 .... and out the gate!) 

When Brian and Jen took Tucker to the Oregon Ducks game they put his picture up on the Jumbotron ...... There he is on bottom left..

Yesterday I made the BEST scrambled eggs yet! Into the Egg-Tastic went 2 eggs, a squirt of creamy garlic sauce (or use mayo).. mixed well, then added some chopped baby spinach, celery, and half a mozzarella stick cut up. I cooked it for 1 minute in the micro and then stirred it. Top went back on and cooked another minute. Lid off and topped with cheese and let sit a minute. OHMYGOSH... this was SO good!!!!

I am so very addicted to this!

Mostly puttered around at my desk yesterday. Looked out and there was a flock of crows in the lower pasture...
The only wildlife we ever saw in Temple City were the crows (at dusk heading south and west to one of the parks), sparrows, blue jays, and occasionally the green parrots that escaped from a burning pet store in Pasadena years before.

Ok, some more information on that shooter who killed the teacher and students at Umpqua Community College:
See..... his mother KNEW he had issues and problems and let him keep buying guns and never expressed any concern over his mental state! She should be locked up!
Throw Back Thursday:
Our little Alex at the Helms Bakery Antique Store...

Dude's dad, Dave, brought a UPS package yesterday. I had ordered some Hoosier Hill Farm buttermilk powder and some sour cream powder. The buttermilk powder can be used as is in place of buttermilk or sour milk. The sour cream powder can be mixed with 3 parts water and 5 parts powder... to use for dips, sauces, potatoes, muffins, casseroles, etc. I can't wait to experiment with these!

I got the following BS email yesterday:
"Message from Saudi Arabia Prince Alwaleed bin Talal for his charity donation and You have been selected as recipient/benefactor for $5 Million Dollars from Alwaleed Philanthropic Foundation Grant.for more information contact Via email"
Ally Mohammed
Please, reply should go to"
Do people REALLY believe this stuff?????

Dinner was easy. I love my casserole Crock*Pot. I had some leftover 'veggie/sausage/pasta' (from 10-4) so I put some in the pot, added in a bunch of fresh veggies, drizzled the veggies olive oil, turned the Crock*Pot on "warm" and in a couple hours it was hot and veggies partially cooked.
Perfect! Good and easy way to reheat or lightly cook just about anything. 

This on top of baby spinach, of course! I bought a humongous package of it and I have figured out a great way to keep it from getting old and mushy so fast. I put the spinach in a large gallon zip bag and left the top open and just set it in the fridge. It's staying so fresh!

Last night ... chair, two Blue Bloods shows, wine, and solitaire on my iPad. Wow, excitement!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.

October 8th


National Fluffernutter Day is celebrated annually on October 8th.  This is a day set aside each year to make and enjoy the sandwich which is made with peanut butter and marshmallow fluff.
A sweet marshmallow-like spread, that he called “Marshmallow Cream” was invented in 1917 by Archibald Query in Somerville, Massachusetts.  In 1913 during World War I, Emma and Amory Curtis of Melrose, Massachusetts invented Snowflake Marshmallow Creme and published a recipe for a peanut butter and marshmallow creme sandwich, which is the earliest known example of a Fluffernutter.
Archiblad Query sold his recipe for “Marshmallow Creme” to Durkee-Mower, Inc. who renamed it Marshmallow Fluff and continues to sell it under that name today.
It was in 1960 that the term Fluffernutter was created by an advertising agency for Durkee-Mower in an attempt to effectively market the peanut butter and marshmallow sandwich.
Make yourself a fluffernutter and post photos using #FluffernutterDay on social media.

Your grands are adorable. Love Alex's dimples. Jack is so handsome! I'll bet the girls love him. In the drum line too! :)

I get at least one of those stupid emails a day. Can you imagine people falling for those? I'll bet plenty do.

All those clouds and no rain!? Dang!! We need more too.
