First Date ~ Owls ~ Jenner ~ DirecTV ~ Lazy Day Stuffed Cabbage ~ Clam Chowders


 
Good 26º clear frozen morning. Warmed yesterday to the high 60ºs.
 
 
Forty one years ago today Jerry and I went on our first date. He wined me and dined me on lobster and told me a ton of funny stories, so funny my cheeks hurt from laughing! We were inseparable from then on! Here we are 12 years later on Catalina Island doing range qualifications at the Avalon pistol range. I was a Reserve and worked then at the BC Range. We'd be flown over to the island by Jimmy Pierce (LASD ret) in an LASD helicopter, taking with us the shotguns from Aero Bureau to test. Doing stuff with him was always fun! I learned so much.    ♥♥♥
 


 
PICTURE OF THE DAY:
Shared by Dave Clark (LASD ret)
 


Here is a "thought" shared by Steve '10-30 Dude' Voors (LASD ret)...
Bruce Jenner had never had an automobile accident until he became a woman driver!

 
 
Yesterday was "mow the grass or else day" ! Went out to start the riding lawnmower and had a flat tire. Great. Got that fixed, got mower started, although it was iffy. A LARGE pop sound and it started. Gadz, scared the you know what out of me! All done now, porch even cleaned off. Back killer. Then it was time for my CHAIR!

 
I had a telephone chat with DirecTV. The gal was soooo nice. Her name, Courtney. She was in Alabama! We had fun talking. I wanted to lower the cost of my monthly bill. Been a customer for over 10 years and pay too much. Never watch HBO or Showtime or Cinemax or Starz. I got my cost cut by $100 a month! Yes. I still get the local channels, east coast, Los Angeles, Hallmark, ESPN, and really a lot more.

My friend Trish was talking about making stuffed cabbage the other day. I have an easier way.. just chop it up and layer it. I like making this either without the meat to go with a St. Paddy's Day Corned Beef or with some of the corned beef a couple days later...
Lazy Day Stuffed Cabbage

 
1 head cabbage - chopped
1 cup rice - cooked. About 2½ cups when cooked
1 - 1½ pounds ground pork (or use cooked corned beef)
1 large onion - chopped
2 cans condensed Campbell's tomato soup
 
Brown meat and onion. In 4 quart casserole layer the cabbage, rice, meat ... alternately 2 or 3 times ... starting and ending with cabbage. Top with undiluted soup that has been mixed smooth in a bow. Bake 350º for an hour or until hot and cabbage is soft.  Serve with mashed potatoes. MMMMMMMMMMM............ SO GOOD!!!
 
 
Dinner was reruns and TV and a good nap in my chair! Today it's back to the cleaning grind and stacking wood on the porch. Yuck.
 
All I know. Happy Hump Day. Nuff said. Ciao.
