Good 41º clear and gonna be sunny morning. Yesterday it warmed to 87º. Should be about the same today.

There was no 10-12 code for yesterday.
 

Breakfast:
I found some "buttered popcorn" rice cakes, slathered on the Costco guacamolé, and nibbled on some crispy bell pepper pieces (from 7 Oaks Farm) and tomatoes Chris C gave me.
Wish I could make those crispy bell pepper pieces ... oh and they have crispy okra too.

Last night's Monday Night Football:

 
 
PICTURE OF THE DAY
Barn Owl:


 
The world's biggest horse, Big Jake, 20 hands and 2/3 of an inch, weighing in at 2600 pounds!!!  11 year old Belgian gelding. Raised from a weanling in Ostego Michigan at Smoky Hollow Farm.

 
Yesterday I cleaned. Vacuumed and dusted the living room and washed Dude's couch cover. Exciting.
 
Dinner was beef burger patties, Rana Mushroom Ravioli (refrigerated), veggies, and cherry tomatoes ...........


This pasta made by Giovanni Rana is awesome! You can see where to buy and recipes at www.giovannirana.com . I buy mine at Safeway.   They also carry his products at Wal Mart and many many places in So. Cal.


First the patties were sauteéd in olive oil sprinkled with Lawry's Garlic Salt. Then in went the veggies, a drizzle of oil on them, lid on and some steaming....

Cooked the ravioli in boiling garlic salted and olive oil drizzled water, drained, and added to pan...

Next a bag of Parmesan cheese was sprinkled on top, lid back on to melt....

OMGOOOOOOD!!!!!
