Weather ~ Egg-Tastic Combo ~ Reardon's Version ~ Monday Night Football Scores ~ Boxes & Bruiser ~ Friend's Surgeries ~ Alyssa Santisteven ~ Tamales & Guacamole

Good 35º cloudy morning. I was surprised, stayed about same temp all day yesterday and even warmed to 40º at one point, but I was sure it was going to freeze overnight. Brought the hummingbird feeders in. Never froze.
Still a bit of snow on my mountain...

Getting some help from Mike today with some chores and glad for a break in the rain....

Breakfast yesterday .... another Egg-Tastic concoction ...
2 eggs, parsley, mozzarella cheese, celery, creamy garlic sauce, garlic sea salt..... all mixed together in the cooker... microwave on high 1 min 10 seconds, stir, cook 1 min 15 seconds more. Top with cheese and let sit with lid on for a minute.
A plate of spinach, with celery, mozzarella cheese, and Kraft Asian Toasted Sesame dressing (OMGOOD!)

My pal Pat Reardon got himself and his sweet Alice a couple porcelain soup mugs... he makes his eggs in these..

Great idea Pat!!!
I forgot to post Monday night's football scores. Sorry... The game was so disappointing that I must have put it out of my mind!

Yesterday I stayed in! Even renewed my vehicle registration via internet! How cool is that! No waiting in line! The pest control guys were here about 2pm, Jim and AJ. Not much activity this time of year since the pesky ground squirrels are hibernating, so they just asked if I had any issues or if everything was ok.
 Cats love boxes! I had a couple that I didn't use and were on the floor when Mr. Bruiser decided to investigate... and then thought this was a good place for a nap!

I have to tell you this has been the month for surgeries with my friends. Georgia Sue in AZ had bladder surgery for cancer, Lydia in Diamond Bar had knee surgery, Jennifer of Grants Pass just had hand surgery. Everyone seems to be doing OK at this point. Nancy and I are going to take some "treats" to Jennifer. Not like the last hand surgery friend whom I did that for and got kicked in the gut for doing something nice and treated like I was a bad guy enemy! This time it will go well!

Dinner was some tamales I got at Costco. Really good. Wrap in wet paper towel, put in microwave. Easy peasy. Then I served them with some 
I also got at Costco. (Love the name!) Samples of the tamales and guac were being handed out. Couldn't pass them up!
Very good. Stuffed myself. OINK!!
Then it was the usual...  chair, wine, TV, and a phone chat with a couple of pals.

National Chocolate Covered Anything Day

Chocolaholics rejoice!
Its a great day to indulge, binge, "pig out", and otherwise consume to excess, your favorite food....chocolate. We believe the timing of this day, during the holiday season, couldn't be better.
Today, we get to enjoy our beloved chocolate by covering something...just about anything... in a generous amount of chocolate. Pour, spread, or drizzle chocolate over cakes, cupcakes, pies, pancakes or waffles, nuts, raisins, even ants (yes, some people actually eat chocolate covered ants!). We will let you decide what is too extreme, and how much is too much, if any.
As chocoloaholics, we shouldn't need any added incentive to enjoy our chocolate. In the giving spirit of the holiday season, make sure to give or share some of your favorite chocolate covered treats today.

Happy National Chocolate Covered Anything Day!!!!
