Holy cow it got to 87º yesterday afternoon! Hmmmm..... is this Spring or has Summer invaded us already?

This from Tally & Spencer Huntoon (LACO Fire ret) :
                                                   LOL... true!!!


Yesterday I was frustrated with my computer as it wouldn't load a Photoshop program I just bought. So, scrubbed my bathroom top to bottom. Yippeeee.....  Now back is KILLING me!!! Guess it's an Ibuprofen day and rest!

Puns for Educated Minds
The fattest knight at King Arthur's round table was
Sir Cumference. He acquired his size from too much pi.

I thought I saw an eye-doctor on an Alaskan island, but it
turned out to be an optical Aleutian.

She was only a whisky-maker, but he loved her still.

A rubber-band pistol was confiscated from an algebra class,
because it was a weapon of math disruption.

No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery.

PICTURE OF THE DAY.... fox smelling daffodil   ..

Dinner was some smoked pork that PattyK's Cliff had made, along with the Loaded Cauliflower Casserole from Leah (Sunday's blog: http://oregonsue.blogspot.com/2015/04/roasted-carrots-gtanos-tuckers-so-cal.html )

I cooked some garlic cloves along with the cauliflower in the boiling water, scooped them out and chopped them up while the cauliflower drained and cooled. Into the bowl went the mayonnaise, sour cream, siriacha, paprika, black pepper, garlic, mushrooms, some fresh snipped chives, and cheese....

Then I added in half a bag of baby spinach ...

When cool I added in the cauliflower, mixed well, added to cooking sprayed 9x13 pan. Topped with other half of cheese and bacon.

Baked 425º 25 minutes. Melted cheese and a bit of a crunch on top.

Dished it with Cliff's smoked pork. OMGOOOOOOOOOD!!!!

I'm going to make this again and again and maybe next time try it with broccoli ... or a combination of the two, cauliflower and broccoli. I did like the baby spinach in there too!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.
