SUN! ~ Murphy's Laws ~ Sugar Fox ~ Oatmeal Waffle Cookies ~ My Mom ~ Cat On Leash ~ Applejack ~ Quinoa/Thai Rice & Veggies

Good 36º foggy morning. The sun came out yesterday and it was awesome! According to Jeannie it came out in Grants Pass (finally) about 3pm. It was beautiful here

and in Medford.... 

Got this from Derry Benedict (former LASD..worked Temple with Jerry) ....
Corollaries to Murphy's Law
1. Law of Mechanical Repair -
   After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin
   to itch and you'll have to go to the rest room.
 2. Law of Gravity - 
   Any  tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least
   accessible place in the universe. 

 3. Law of Probability -
   The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the
   stupidity of your act.
Jennifer's pal, Mike Hannan (former RR Fire Chief) and I were discussing her dog Sugar Fox. Sugar Fox is an American Indian dog but Mike and I agreed she certainly looks like she's got more wolf in her ...  Sugar Fox:


For those of you with waffle irons.... I posted this a few years ago...
The waffle iron and cookie dough. Oatmeal cookie dough!
(A dollop of ice cream on top or an ice cream sandwich!)

The package of dough calls for 1 T water, but I put in 5 T water. Made it easier to work with. Drop by spoonfuls on the hot iron and bake 7 minutes. I experimented with size and the larger size came off the iron easier. OH BOY ARE THEY GOOD! Next is peanut butter cookies!

1835 – In the first assassination attempt against a President of the United States,Richard Lawrence attempts to shoot president Andrew Jackson, but fails and is subdued by a crowd, including several congressmen.

1847 – Yerba Buena, California is renamed San Francisco.

1994 ... today marks the 21st year my Mother, Margaret Laney, has been gone. So miss her still today. She never got to know my grandbabies; Alex, Jack, Tucker, and Sami. Such a shame! She was a beautiful person inside and out. LOVE YOU MOM! ♥

Ok, saw a couple friends shared this video on FB so had to show you. I was laughing soooooooooooo hard. Putting a leash on a cat for the first time.....

PJ and Dave take their cat for a walk on a leash all the time. But not this cat...
There are a few more videos on YouTube like this if you type "cat on leash" in the search window you can watch them all. So funny. Even Bruiser liked watching!
Yesterday was a yearly trip to my rehumatologist/allergist. Down to Medford....I was given the big OK and then off to get a blood test. Stopped in the liquor store on the way home to get some of that Crown Royal Apple... but the gal told me you can't find it anywhere in So. Oregon. Sold out! Will be a couple weeks until they get more in. So............... instead I bought some Yukon Jack Applejack!
It smells like Granny Smith Apples! And it tastes like HEAVEN!!!! Wow, good stuff!!!

For dinner I wanted something without meat... so I mixed some quinoa and red Thai rice in my rice cooker... added a little infused olive oil along with the water and some garlic sea salt ..

Then I chopped up some vegetables, put them in the frying pan with some whole snapeas, and enough water to steam them lid on, then lid off and evaporated the water and added in some olive oil...

I stir fried the veggies and then added in the cooked quinoa and rice and some fresh spinach...

Next was a couple cans of sliced mushrooms... and some cheese..

Stirred it all up and heated through and voilá ... dinner!
That and a glass of wine and a fire in the wood stove and some stupid shows on TV!
Oh, and speaking of wine... I wore my new sweatshirt to the doc's yesterday. Everyone loved it!

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

January 30th
National Croissant Day


A rich, buttery, crescent-shaped roll made of puff pastry that layers yeast dough with butter (known as laminating). Stories of the roll being made in the shape of the crescent of the Turkish flag, after the defeat of the Turks in the Siege of Vienna in 1683, are a perpetuated myth. Recipes for croissants do not appear in recipe books until the early 1900s, according to the
Oxford Companion To Food, and the earliest French reference is in 1853. The croissant is descendant of the Austriankipfel, a crescent roll that was brought to Paris in 1938 or 1939 by August Zang, an Austrian military officer. The kipfel was ultimately interpreted into puff pastry by the French, where it achieved immortality as the croissant. You can read this history in Jim Chevallier’s book, August Zang and the French Croissant: How Viennoisserie Came To France (Kindle edition).
