Throw Back Thursday... my 'Scuffy Ann of Stockbridge' and me 1956:
Yesterday Mike (former RR Fire Chief) came out to weed-eat for me. Big job, slopes and fence lines.
While Mike did that I scrubbed and cleaned the front deck. Washing off the chairs and tables and vacuuming. Time for some porch sitting!!! I also pulled some weeds and got rid of things I don't need/use anymore. Mike took a Ronco Rotisserie I had not used in years. He's going to play with that and get it working.
Mike also assembled this storage rack for me. I will put upstairs to hold a myriad of stuff!
UPS Dave, Dude's dad, brought the Spitz Sunflower Seeds I ordered from Amazon. I got the variety pack.... cracked pepper, dill pickle, and regular salted. YUMMMMMMMM!!! Dude was happy... Dave gave him 2 cookies!!!
From Vivia in NY:
When you've seen one shopping center you've seen a mall.
Police were summoned to a daycare center where a three-year-old was resisting a rest.
Did you hear about the fellow whose entire left side was cut off? He's all right now.
A bicycle can't stand alone; it's just two tired.
When a clock is hungry it goes back four seconds.
The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine is now fully recovered.
He had a photographic memory which was never developed.
When she saw her first strands of grey hair she thought she'd dye.
Acupuncture is a jab well done. That's the point of it.

Last night for dinner I made a concoction...
Leftover chicken, mushrooms, artichoke heart quarters, leeks, celery, bacon flavored Alfredo sauce, egg noodles
I sauteéd the chicken and mushrooms. Cooked the noodles (egg noodles made with wild garlic - from Grocery Outlet) and added them in and the artichoke hearts.
I re-hydrated some of the leeks and celery, 1/4 cup each, and stirred them into the bacon Alfredo.
I stirred that into the pan with the meat/noodles and added in some bacon crumbles...
Heated everything well and when I dished it up I topped it with some Feta cheese... OMGOOOOOD!!!!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.

National Zucchini Bread Day
National Zucchini Bread Day is a day to enjoy Zucchini bread. In researching this day, we first asked ourselves "why hold this day in the spring, when this prolific garden squash in not in great supply?" The answer quickly dawned on us....they hold this at a time when you are not sick of all that zucchini.
In the summer months, the prolific zucchini plant produces more fruit than gardeners can use. As summer progresses, everyone becomes sick and tired of the eating zucchini. But, the harvest goes on, day after day, after day. By mid summer, gardeners are resorting to all sorts of tricks to get rid of the mountains of fruit produced in their gardens. Some even stealthily leave zucchini on neighbors' door step in the middle of the night.
So here you are in the month of April. Zucchini finds its way in small supply to grocery stores in your area. Now, you've got the urge for zucchini bread. Hence, the creation of this day in April!
