I want to thank all of you who responded to my "do you want to stay on the daily drivel list" note. I so appreciated you comments! Also, it got a few folks off the list, as they can read it on FB and cut down on their email load. Whatever works best!!!

**********************************************
Dinner was reruns, but I wanted to share this recipe with you. It was one of Jerry's and is one of my favorites. Original from the Frugal Gourmet, Jeff Smith:
SEAFOOD SALAD

2 cups mayonnaise (Best Foods of course!)
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 T. lemon juice
pepper
Mix well.
_________________________
2 cups shrimp
1-2 cups scallops
2 cups fake crab (or real, but $) or fresh squid
Quickly sauté the above in butter or olive oil, and cool.
2 pounds muscles, steamed and cooled
chopped sweet onion
chopped bell pepper
grated carrot
1 cup chopped celery
 
Mix all together with dressing and refrigerate several hours. Even any type of pasta would be good in this dish.
**********************************************
 
Ok, so then it was chair, wine, and TV. NO, I didn't watch any of the DNC. GAG~!!!! Lies lies lies. Fortunately the news was recorded so I could speed through the politics.





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

Dorothy Hamill- A dream and a smile.

Helen Mirren- Aging gracefully.

Kevin Spacey- appears effortless in his craft-but you know it isn't so. One of my favorite actors.

The ants tried to eat me yesterday, so I was too full of benadryl to watch any but a few minutes of their Convention. Which is just as well.
