Good 32º clear gonna be sunny morning.

Throw Back Thursday.... Me and my baby girl, Kristen.. 1990 .. she was 22

This was 2 years ago in Medford while I was at the doctor's.
Strange weather here in April!

Since I don't trust Google any more... Google Chrome especially.. and Turk said Google is in a war with AOL... read this posted in the Huffington Post...

On this date in 1983, friends Jim (he was like a son, and I was his 'other mom'.) and Dawn Forbus were married. Wow, 32 years guys! CONGRATULATIONS!

So good to visit with them a the LASD Roundup in Laughlin! Jerry's nickname for Jim was 'The Busses'!

Jim was an LASD Deputy and then moved to Washoe County, NV, and was a Deputy there until he retired. Now he's enjoying his granddaughter, Audrey, and being Papa!

Ok, first Smilebox from my Laughlin trip....

Thought I'd share this super easy, super good recipe from PattyK...

Patty's Easy Cookies
1 box cake mix, any flavor
1/2 cup oil
1/2 to 1 cup of any flavor chips, chocolate or whatever.
1 cup nuts
2 beaten eggs.
Mix, drop and bake
350 degree oven 14 minutes Or try them in the waffle iron!!! 

Yesterday I was going to PJ and Dave's to check the fish (I think the cold weather has them on the bottom of the pond!) and water some indoor plants. My golf cart refused to run. CRAP! So, now it sits in the driveway as I can't push it back to the patio. Sigh....

For dinner I cooked a couple yams in the casserole Crock-Pot. Cut in half, put in a little water, set on low or medium for about 3 hours (depending on size) and cook til soft. Had them with some leftover couscous ....

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

April 16th
National Eggs Benedict Day (YUMMMMM!) 

Credit for this recipe is given to Chef Charles Ranhofer of Delmonico’s Restaurant in New York City—which also happened to be the first restaurant opened in the U.S., starting with a small pastry café in 1827 and expanding into a restaurant two years later.
At that time there were no public dining rooms or restaurants. Men could stop into a tavern for a beverage and what amounted to “bar food.” People ate all their meals at home or, if traveling, at the inn or hotel. Otherwise, hungry people got food from street vendors.
In the 1860s, a regular patron of Delmonico’s, Mrs. LeGrand Benedict, arrived for lunch and found nothing appealing on the menu. She discussed her tastes with the chef, who created on the spot what would become an iconic recipe. In his cookbook, The Epicurean, published in 1894, he called the recipe called Eggs à la Benedick, inadvertently misspelling her name.

The recipe is relatively easy: toasted English muffins topped with a round of cooked ham “an eighth of an inch thick and of the same diameter as the muffins one each half.” A poached egg is placed atop each each muffin half, and the whole is covered with Hollandaise sauce.
