Errands ~ Dude ~ TBT ~ Brenda & Robert ~ Veggie/Noodle/Buffalo Chicken ~ Baked Scallops

Good 50º slightly foggy morning.
Got some drizzly rain yesterday. Not much, but OK.
I went into Grants Pass to give Leah the Cusinart mini, the Gelato maker, and the professional mandolin. She was very excited about the "gifts".... I am happy to have them out of my cupboards and she is happy to have some new toys! 

 Then a stop at the Eye Care Group  
to pick up my new glasses. This is a replacement pair for the ones Dude chewed on! They are my "computer glasses" ... seeing at an arm's length... also good for cleaning up the doggie do in the yard! LOL They are great and very comfortable. The eyeglass specialist, (what are they called?) who fits them after they are made, Jeff and I got to talking about our dogs. I told him the story of Smoke. He showed me a picture of his little Rottweiler 1 year old and I showed him Dude.
Yesterday's vet visit for Dude went so well. He has no gum or teeth problems. I picked him up after 2:30. He was pretty lethargic the rest of the evening. He's only supposed to eat soft foods for a few days. He had some chicken stock and a few spoonfuls of his canned dog food, lamb and rice.

Throw Back Thursday ... my sissy Marion and I on a road trip 9-11-90 ... (wow, 9-11!)

Cool is in California, near Auburn and northeast of Sacramento...
Monday I mentioned I had found Winston Elliott's name on the RELAC newsletter as having passed away. Today would have been Win's birthday. RIP Win. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Moon got me a phone number for his wife, but no answer and not answer machine. Will try again.
Today is a happy occasion. The 32nd Wedding Anniversary of Brenda and Robert Flores. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!

So the concoction I made on Tuesday night was this...
Egg noodles, chicken with buffalo wing sauce (Costco), mushrooms, asparagus, celery, red/yellow/green bell peppers...

Chopped all the veggies and put in big pan with olive oil and a little white wine... sauté and steam to 'un-raw'....

Using peeled garlic (I know, lazy!) and my GarlicTwist I minced 4 cloves and added them to the pan with the vegetables...

I cooked the noodles with lots of garlic salt...

Remember to put a wooden spoon across the top of the pot you are boiling the noodles in so it won't boil over.

Next I stirred in a can of cream of mushroom soup, the chicken, the cooked drained noodles, and some mozzarella cheese...

Heated well and dished up............ spicy enough from the buffalo chicken and DELISH!!!!!!

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