Yesterday about 10 minutes after I posted my blog, saying didn't look like we were going to get any rain.. it stared raining! I had seen it raining up on my mountain, but it did come down here. It 'drizzled' for a couple hours! Wet down everything so nice and kept the air clear! 


While I was outside, Mr. Hummer stopped by for a snack...

I see you, taking my picture!

 
I LOVE Tchaikovsky! I LOVE The Waltz of the Flowers! This is beautiful. These young musicians are FABULOUS! It made me cry, I know.... only because I love this waltz so much! I turned the sound up all the way! Enjoy! Thanks John Anderson (LASD ret) for sharing!!! ox

Forty students from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance took a classical approach to the flash mob as they flash waltzed Tchaikovsky's
Waltz of the Flowers at the new Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower in Jerusalem .
Doctors, patients and passers-by joined in the fun.
The surprise concert was part of Good Deeds Day, an annual event that originated in Israel in 2007 and now takes place in over 50 countries worldwide. On this day volunteers reach out to the less fortunate and the vulnerable.
The Academy students enjoyed the day so much that they have decided to schedule regular concerts at the hospital. Hadassah Medical Organization treats over one million patients annually, without regard to race, religion or national origin.

Today is a SPECIAL birthday.. my pal Edda Gahm. HAPPY BIRTHDAY EDDA!!!!

Edda visited up here when her sis GloW and bro-in-law John lived in GP for a short time. She fell in love with the area and Tap Rock! Come back Edda.... Tap Rock and the Great Cats Park!

How about this simple yummy recipe....
Muffin Tamales:
Now what could be better.... easy tamale muffins! Lighter than masa, you use cornbread muffin mix!

aluminum foil or foil baking cups
2 pkgs (8½ oz each) corn bread muffin mix
1 can (14½ oz) cream-style corn
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1½ cups Mexican cheese blend, divided
1½ cups chopped cooked chicken (I like the thighs best .. more moist)
¾ cup red enchilada sauce
Heat oven to 400º. In large bowl combine muffin mix, corn, and eggs. Stir until just moistened. Stir in 1 cup of cheese.
In another bowl toss chicken with enchilada sauce.
 
Fill each of 24 foil lined muffin cups with 2 tablespoons of the batter. Place 1 tablespoon of the chicken mixture in the center of each and cover with about 1 tablespoon of the batter.
 
Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle tops with remaining cheese, bake another 3-5 minutes until cheese is melted. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to wire racks. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.  
 
Balloons I got from Jen for my birthday is a special treat for Bruiser!


Dinner.... I reconstituted some freeze-dried veggies.. and thawed out some Omaha potatoes au gratin and a hamburger patty.... 


The vegetables I mixed with mayo and some lemon pepper marinade/dressing.

Frying the hamburger patty I used the garlic sea salt and pepper...

The potato croquettes were cooked in the micro and I set the burger patty atop a cheddar rice cake with mayo.
                                OMGOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!
 
Then it was chair time, another glass of vino, and a Hallmark movie....
 
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.
