Siberian Wildfires ~ Sunflower Seeds ~ Wine Glass ~ Golf Cart ~ Broccoli Ham Cheese Muffins ~ CMA ~ Pineapple Upside Down Cake


Good 38º clear but slightly hazy (from the fires in Siberia http://abcnews.go.com/International/siberian-wildfires-kill-23-displace-thousands/story?id=30302908 ) morning.
Those sunflower seeds Brian shared with me at the baseball game on Saturday I found them at www.amazon.com. Spitz is the name and I got a variety pack of the Cracked Pepper, Dill Pickle, and regular Salted. The dill pickle sounds interesting too. 

Yesterday Jeannie sent me this... thought we needed one:
Actually, I like the way they took that picture. Jeannie, we need to do one of those, with white wine!

Probably gonna cost me a s**t load!!! Groan......................  That and the riding lawnmower AND getting my barn painted this summer and getting the pastures brush-hogged and getting the tar weed sprayed!
How about this recipe?
Broccoli Ham Cheese Muffins
from Betty Crocker and my pal Vivia in NY

1 bag (12oz) Green Giant Steamers frozen broccoli & cheese sauce
1½ cups Original Bisquick mix
1/2 cup milk
3 T vegetable oil
1 egg
½ cup diced cooked ham
½ cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Heat oven to 400º. Spray 12 regular size muffin cups with cooking spray.
Cook broccoli as directed on the bag.
In large bowl, stir together Bisquick, milk, oil, and egg. Stir in broccoli, ham, and cheese just until well mixed. Spoon mixture evenly into muffin cups.
Bake 18-22 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes, remove from pan, serve warm.
*Wrap and refrigerate any leftover muffins. Unwrap and reheat 1 at a time on microwavable plate 15-30 seconds.
Last night I tried watching the Country Music Awards. OMG. "Records broken for largest crowd ever to see an awards show." Held at AT&T Cowboy's Stadium with a seating capacity of 80,000!

The MCs were Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan. Neither were very good. Crowd too big. Too much noise. The MCs were shouting into their microphones! I didn't watch much!

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