David Nancy & Skeeter ~ Storing Veggies ~ Key Lime Cake ~ Brian Jen Tucker Sami at Tap Rock ~ Corvette Rally ~ Salad


Good 57º very overcast cloudy morning.
Yesterday by noon it was only 78º. Nice. Then the temps got up to 84º by 3pm. Still not too shabby. 6:30pm:

Shoot, I forgot to mention yesterday that it was Nancy and Dave Perry's 36th anniversary. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!!!
With their fur child Skeeter!

Another good storage tip:
If you can't get through an 8 pound bag of carrots fast enough, chop them up, blanch in hot water, and place in freezer bags. Most vegetables do well when frozen.
Frozen chopped vegetables
Yesterday morning I made a cake for Jen. This is a new one, even has matching frosting....
 








I just sprinkled some powdered sugar over the top...
I'm anxious to hear how Jen and family likes it!

She spent her birthday with Brian and the kids over at the coast. I met them yesterday morning at Tap Rock for the buffet.

Sami and Tucker each had one of these awesome hot chocolates....

They both had fruit, rolls, and waffles with whipped cream and chocolate chips!

I had a mimosa (actually two!)and a veggie with Swiss cheese omelette and a blueberry muffin... OMGOOOOD!


Outside on the deck was this guy with this crazy moustache!

After breakfast Tucker and Sami played in the waterfall...


Across the street was a gathering of corvettes. Apparently there was a corvette rally here in GP this weekend. So many beauties...

Later when I was opening mail I had a notice from the DMV. They have changed the rules. I have to take proof of birth in the USA, proof of my name change from my birth name, AND it's going to cost me $40!!!! Geeeesh...........
Dinner was salad....spinach,  cauliflower, broccoli, tomatoes, mushrooms, lettuce, and some chopped up Poblano chilis.
Dressing was mayonnaise, lemon juice, and Lawry's garlic salt:


Perfect, that and a Hallmark movie, Family for Christmas, and a Blue Bloods.

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

July 13th
National French Fries Day
If you live near an In-N-Out, get some of their fries.... Animal Fries! Melted cheese, secret spread (like Thousand Island dressing) and grilled onions....

If you live in Grants Pass you could go to The Haul if they were open on Monday for some of their AWESOME baked garlic/rosemary fries. So, maybe you should go on Tuesday and remember to take your own ranch dressing! OOPS just found out The Haul is also closed on Tuesday. Guess you will have to wait til Wednesday!~
