Fog ~ Rain ~ KOBI-TV FB Post ~ Monday Football ~ Ravioli/Veggies/Alfredo ~ Jesse Stone ~ Christmas Clock

Good 49º foggy morning.

See, the doubting Thomas I am saying I doubted it would rain yesterday ... it started sprinkling at 10:15am yesterday!!! By noon it was POURING!!!! This is what the radar looked like then:

Our Fielder Mountain yesterday...

AND LOOK, a puddle!!!! This is soooooo exciting!

The rain lasted a long time and finally stopped at about 3pm. We got by then 1/4" !! YES.

"10-20" = What is your location? (or... what's your 20?)

I was so thrilled to see our local KOBI-TV Channel 5 posted my picture on their Facebook page.... how neat is that!

Monday night football:

1958 – Viggo Mortensen, American actor
Ravioli, veggies, celery ...

I cooked the ravioli in boiling Lawry's garlic salted water and drained. The veggies and celery were steamed with a little chicken stock and olive oil.....

Then I added in a drained can of olives and mushrooms... and added in the cooked ravioli...

Next was the Basil Pesto Alfredo sauce and some sriracha mayo..... mixed well and heated through and it was OMGOOOOOD!!!

I watched the newest Tom Selleck Jesse Stone movie.... Lost In Paradise (on the Hallmark channel)
I was very disappointed in this one. Just not up to par. Jesse was so down and gloomy throughout the movie. He even adopted a dog who had belonged to a murder victim. The dog was going to be put down at the shelter, but Jesse took him home. He wouldn't eat. Jesse finally started bringing home restaurant spaghetti and feeding him a dinner from a take-home box. Gross! Then he NEVER talked to the dog!!! Sigh..................................... I sure like Blue Bloods better!

This is scary.... the Christmas clock:

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

National Brandied Fruit Day

Oh... it has been years since I've brandied fruit. Spiced Peaches was my signature side dish over the holidays. Thank you for the reminder.

There was scattered rain here yesterday afternoon. Hear it was a downpour in Los Angeles.

My housekeeper is usually here an hour before now. Hope she's okay.

My "housekeeper" is always here! xo

So glad you got some rain. Lydia said it rained at her house a bit yesterday but it missed us. We live only a couple of miles apart. :( Not fair!

Edda and I saw Lynyrd Skynyrd in San Diego a couple of years ago at Sean Hannity's last Freedom Concert. It was wild and we loved it! What a trip! We rode down there on Amtrak and John was waiting outside for us when we got out. Sweet hubby. I can always count on him.

Also met Earl Hindman when my family and I were at the taping of Home Improvement. Sat behind "Wilson" in the Tool Time audience. Kevin, Daryl and John, III were in his scenes as they were sitting directly behind him. When that episode was shown on TV their friends at school was amazed! Funny.

Yummy looking dinner! Hope you are enjoying the new TV! Loved the cat cartoon! :)

So glad that you had a recordable amount of rain!!

I totally agree with you on Jesse Stone. Way too gloomy. And Bruce will tell you, I was yelling at him to talk to "Steve" the beautiful dog. What a cute little actor he was.

Love, Gail
