Sunday's Football ~ Dirty Martini ~ Monday Night Football ~ Kio ~ Mel & Jim ~ Rain ~ Dude ~ Chicken/Veggie/Pasta/Cheese Casserole

Good 44º VERY foggy morning.
Yesterday's football:


The game was making me so nervous I decided to make a dirty martini.... with Vodka, the juice from my pickled green tomatoes (with garlic and a jalapeño slice ... mostly my Uncle Lloyd's recipe) ..... put vodka and some pickle juice in the shaker (was my Mom and Dad's.... so it's OLD, probably purchased in the 1930's!) and some ice and shake it up, strain into glass and add a pick with some of the tomatoes.... OMGOOOD!!

Tonight's football: It's all about da birds~!

Today is a friend's birthday... Mr. Kio Ebrahimzadeh! Happy Birthday kiddo! Many many more. Amazing, you were born on the Shah's birthday! I'm sure that made your grandfather happy!!! xo (Hey Kio, you good looking guy, you... I need a recent photo of you!!!)

And... today is also my nephew Jim and his beauteous wife, Melinda's 24th Anniversary! Wow, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY kids!!! xo  With their two boys, Sloan and Ryan..

... to quote a friend, I think I just threw up a little in my mouth! Such a phoney. So full of herself. Stayed with that cheating baboon of a husband, why? Ambition! Also a tempermental beeotch... a friend of Jerry's worked for the Secret Service and said when first in the White House she and Clintoon both acted like they were at Disneyland. When the SS guy told here something she wanted to do was not "protocol" she threw a heavy crystal ashtray at him. He subsequently told his boss that he would not lay down his life for her and to reassign him!

1947 – Jaclyn Smith, American actress

1961 – Dylan McDermott, American actor

1967 – Keith Urban, New Zealand singer
The rain stopped here just about the time the Patriot's game ended. The sun came out briefly and the steam was rising...

So then I ran "5 Miles" to take the trash to the can and put the can on the road...

There were 7 deer when I went out back to get the golf cart. No room on today's blog, will publish them tomorrow. So pretty!!!!
Dinner yesterday... since it was World Pasta Day...
I re-hydrated some freeze dried carrots and peas...

I bought a roasted chicken the day before, took that all apart and discarded the bones...

I put the chicken into a bowl, added in the tomato sauce, Classico Creamy Tomato & Roasted garlic sauce, the carrots and peas, can of olives, and some basil leaves ... Mixed well.

The fusilli pasta cooked in Lawry's garlic salted water with a drizzle of olive oil. Then drained and added to the chicken mixture....

Then I decided it needed a little "kick" so I drizzled in some sriracha mayo...

Then half the pasta/chicken mixture went into a 9x13 baking dish that had been sprayed with Pam. I sprinkled it evenly with mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, and the basil... Then top with remaining pasta mixture and the remaining cheese and basil.
Bake 20 minutes at 375º. Remove and immediately sprinkle with more mozzarella and Parmesan.

                                           AWESOME dinner!!!

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