Rain ~ Creek's A Risin' ~ Deer ~ Sunday Football ~ Babette & Jim ~ Mini Pizzas w/ Grands

Good 42º rainy morning.
Boy oh boy, did the rain keep on a comin' yesterday. By 10am we had another 1/2" since I had been up for 2½ hours!! There was a 'flood watch' issued for Curry, Josephine, and Siskiyou counties in regards to heavy rain combined with the snow melt off. This could contribute to small stream and creek flooding and possible urban flooding. This will last throughout Monday morning. My seasonal creek is filled!

And water is rolling down the hill.... making a "new creek"!

Poured rain all day yesterday and we ended up with 2½" of that stuff!! A number of streets in Grants Pass were flooded yesterday. Today prediction is for "cloudy" and then more rain tomorrow.
The deer were out...
Yesterday's football scores:
   My Patriots and Tucker's Broncos face off the 24th!

I want one of these:

Today is a special anniversary... my high school pal Sandy's (Todoran) baby sister, Babette and her groom Jim have been married since 1986. WOW! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!!!

Historically this date....

And births this date include...
1779 - Peter Mark Roget, English physician and creator of Roget's Thesaurus. (d. 1869)

Roget who is now famous for his dictionary of synonyms, the Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases. During his career he was a doctor in Manchester, a professor of physiology at the Royal Institution, and the secretary of the Royal Society. He retired in 1848 and devoted himself to his dictionary of synonyms, based on notes he'd been compiling since early in his career. In 1852 he published his thesaurus, now commonly called Roget's Thesaurus, which has been in print ever since.

.... I have to say, this is one of my most favorite books!!

1882 – A. A. Milne, English author (d. 1956)

1892 – Oliver Hardy, American comedian and actor (d. 1957)

1904 – Cary Grant, English actor (d. 1986)
When working for Fabergé, Mr. Grant was on our board of directors. Such a super charming man!! YUMMMMMM... even at his age! A privilege to meet him.

1913 – Danny Kaye, American actor (d. 1987)

1955 – Kevin Costner, American actor

1980 – Jason Segel, American actor

Later for dinner I tried an experiment. Grands Biscuits... flatten and put on baking tray. Spread some "pizza sauce" on each round. I didn't have pizza sauce, so used some Puttanesca from Cucina & Amore (with tomato slices and olives... get from  ...) then topped that with some cooked chicken thighs, broken up. Lastly lots of mozzarella cheese. Bake at 375º about 18 minutes.  Taaaaa daaaaaa.... Individual Pizzas!

I took one of the biscuits and split it open, put on some sauce and cheese, crimped it back together and cooked it with the mini pizzas.
I ate the stuffed biscuit and one of the mini pizzas. OMGOOOD!!!!! Of course if you make these you can use regular pizza sauce and any topping.. pepperoni, artichoke hearts, ham, mushrooms, meatballs, sausage.... etc.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy MLK Monday. Ciao.

May the sunshine peek through your clouds. Do hope your daughter is on the mend.

Thank you for a great excuse to pour an extra cup of hazelnut coffee!

We'll be overcast this week- light fog this morning is my excuse for not starting the day off earlier.
