Yesterday after I finished going through my checkbook and paying more bills on line I straightened out a mess of paperwork on my desk. Such thrilling stuff. Then I cleaned out a cupboard in my bathroom, getting rid of a bunch of stuff!!!
My friend Flory Ornstein (hubby Neil.. LASD SR ret) is having gallbladder surgery today. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

And births this date include...
1927 – Doc Severinsen, American composer and jazz trumpeter
Later dinner was an "experiment" ...
Chicken strips, broccoli/cauliflower/carrots, mushrooms, veggie pasta, (didn't use the spinach!), snap peas, broccoli slaw, and pesto mayonnaise.
I must have bought the mayonnaise at Costco. Also they have it at Sherm's Thunderbird. In the box to search where to buy.... So. Cal, Costco, Albertsons, and a bunch of other places. Made in San Francisco.
I sauteéd the mushrooms and chicken strips in olive oil... and put the pasta into boiling water seasoned with Lawry's garlic salt...
Two minutes before the end of the pasta cooking I tossed in the veggies and the broccoli slaw...
Drained the pasta and veggies well...
All of that went into the pan with the mushrooms and chicken....
Stirred everything up and added in the jar of pesto mayo... and then topped with parmesan cheese. Let it sit for about 10 minutes...
If this type of dish appeals to you and you don't like pesto, stir in some Alfredo sauce, or cheese sauce, even a cream of anything soup, or anything that flips your skirt!
Yesterday early evening I had a great conversation with Brian's friend and mine, Kio Ebrahimzadeh.
Kio is a super guy... his grandfather was the police chief for the Shah of Iran (he has since passed away) and a super interesting person. Kio was a police officer in Oxnard then Simi Valley. He developed brain cancer and has gone through the ranks of treatment at UCLA Neuro-Oncology Unit http://www.neurooncology.ucla.edu/ ,a fund I contribute to every year.
He is doing exceptionally well. Recently fought and won in court his retirement from Simi Valley PD. YES!!! I love this guy and am so pleased he is doing so well.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.
