Snow at HB! ~ Canadian Geese ~ Blood Test & Eyeglasses ~ Car Parts Quiz ~ Mac & Cheese Tuna Bake


Good 31º just a little ice on the barn roof morning.



 
WOW, snow (actually it was hail) in Huntington Beach yesterday! Whodda thought. Snow on the beach!!! And evacuations were asked for at the Newport Beach and Pier due to lightening strikes! Amazing.
 
Yesterday morning the geese stopped by.....

They are here about every other day. They nest in a tree up on my neighbor's property, but come here to get treats!
 
Yesterday was a trip into Grants Pass. I didn't have my blood test done Friday, so it was yesterday. Got word back in the afternoon from my doc's office that my potassium level is just about normal and to keep taking the supplement. I am taking a powder kind that I put in water. Gets me drinking more water!
 
Then I had to take my glasses I wear to see the computer, into the glass repair guy.
While I was gone on Saturday Dude got my glasses off my desk and scratched the lens on one side, bent them, and one of the nose pads was missing! Joy. At least my health insurance pays part of the frames and the lens. I will get them next week. David, the eyeglass fixer guy took the glasses Dude trashed and straightened them and put a new nose pad on. He's so nice! While I was there Dr. Jeff Pelson (my eye doctor) came into the lobby. We chatted for a few. He's AWESOME and soooooooo nice also. Although he looks 18 years old.... he's not.

If you live in this area.. this is my recommendation:
Everyone in that office is super nice.

My friend Olga Duran (married to LASD Sgt Jimmy) posted this quiz on car parts on her FB page. I took it and got 100%. Not bad for a girl!
Certified
Outstanding! You you NAILED this test! You identified all of the major car parts did better than 99% of the people that have taking this test! You could get a job working at any auto-parts store or car dealership with your vast knowledge of car parts, which will can earn you more than $25 a hour.

Share this quiz and see if your friends can come close to beating you! We doubt they will. 
Can you name these basic car parts?

Dinner was a pre-made Mac & Cheese from the deli section at the market. I added in (lots!) celery, canned mushrooms, green chilies, and 2 cans of  tuna. I scraped out the mac and cheese into a bowl and mixed in all the other ingredients ... then put all into a glass baking dish I had sprayed with cooking spray. Topped it all with mozzarella cheese. Baked 350º for 35-40 minutes.




I put some fresh spinach in a bowl and topped it with the Mac & Cheese mixture......

OMGOOOOOOOOD!!! Going to make it again and again.. I have some canned shredded chicken with buffalo sauce.. that will be next. When I go to Costco I'll get some canned salmon and make it with that!

Of course you can use the package of Kraft Mac & Cheese too.
