Rain ~ Kim Novak ~ St. Paddy's Shirt ~ Pasta/Vegetables/Spinach Dip ~ Sunset


Good 49º drizzling morning. It started raining hard about 3:30am. So far we've gotten 1/2". 
 
 
Yesterday stayed cloudy and cool. I had a back therapy, so that was nice. Prior to Stacy working on my back I was chatting with a gentleman in the lobby. He had just done some work for Kim Novak. She has a place up here in Sam's Valley, which is about 16 miles NE of me. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Novak ) and she's married to a doctor, a retired vet.

(http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2013/03/05/kim-novak-life-far-away-from-hollywood-is-wonderful/ )  He said she's just as beautiful as ever. We also talked about Tom Selleck having a place up here close to Wimer and that Clint Eastwood lived in Medford and worked in a sawmill at one time.
 
A lady also came in that was chatty and we talked about her time working for the Wimer Fire Department. She knew RR Fire Chief Mike Hannan back then. I told her I'd pass along her hellos to him.
 

Then to the post office to pick up a package. My St. Patrick's Day shirt....
Being of Irish heritage on my Dad's side (a Laney River in Ireland even!) And Scottish on my Mother's side (family name of Dunbar... like the castle!) and of course Jerry was half Scottish and half Cherokee. Now you understand!

Dinner was a "concoction" I made up..
With a little olive oil in the pan and some water, I steamed broccoli, cauliflower, and zucchini.... When the water evaporated I sauteéd them adding in some shallots and some roasted garlic salt...


I cooked the pasta in garlicky salted water...

I added the grilled chicken strips to the veggies in the pan...


Into the pan went the pasta and a jar of spinach dip....


Mixed it all up and heated well.   OMGOOOOOOD! Heaven!!
 

About then the sun was setting...
 


Chair, wine, TV... Blue Bloods. A chat with pals Linda and Jennifer and Mike.
 
 
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.

GOOD morning. I'm not suprised that lots of good people either have lived, are living or will live in your area.

I haven't had much luck with whole wheat pasta. Will have to try the brand in the picture.

My ancestry is half crazy. Some all the way crazy. That probably explains me.
