Couch Cover ~ Gnocchi/Veggies/Franks ~ Texting & Driving ~ Bananas


Good 52º clear sunny morning. Hit 101º yesterday. UGH.
Yesterday I was in a "clean it out" mood and did get rid of a bunch of "old stuff" in cupboards. Then some vacuuming. Oh how exciting. I also put the new cover on Dude's couch. But, as I was putting it on, Bruiser got on it and made himself comfortable!

I guess he must be jealous that Dude has his own couch, because every evening Bruiser takes it over and Dude either rests on the floor or heads to my bed!

Then later Dude finally go on the couch, but turned around and got off. He didn't like the new cover! Swell. So, off it came and on went the sheet he likes!
Dinner was a combination... I love gnocchi and especially this Parmesan Gnocchi I get in the refrigerated section at the store...

So, first I cooked the gnocchi for 3-4 minutes in boiling water and drained....
Then I cooked these 4 Omaha Steaks gourmet franks in the Air Fryer...




Then into the frying pan with olive oil went the gnocchi, peas, tomatoes, and the broccoli slaw... and sauteéd...


Then I cut the hot dogs up and added them and the roasted garlic Alfredo sauce and heated through... OMGOOOOOD!!!!!

Dessert.. a caramel tartlet (Omaha Steaks)... keep frozen, into microwave for 1 minute 10 seconds. PERFECT!!! OMGOSH, I could eat a dozen of these!!!! No ice cream, no whipped cream... just perfect all by itself! 




Last week I was leaving Brian's office and a car coming up one of the parking lanes pulled right in front of me turning left. Sigh. When I got next to that vehicle at the signal, the driver, female, was texting. I have this sign.....

I held it up against my driver's side window. Then put it down and drove away when the signal was green. As I came down the hill, she was in the left lane and I in the right. She showed me her hat size!!!!!!!

LOL!!! Good thing I wasn't a cop, here that is a $500 fine! (not the flipping, the texting while driving! http://www.oregonlive.com/politics/index.ssf/2013/07/texting_talking_on_phone_while.html)

Historically this date....
2003 – Mars makes its closest approach to Earth in nearly 60,000 years, passing 34,646,418 miles (55,758,005 km) distant.


.... so when someone sends you an email saying Mars will be the closest to earth in August or whenever, it's just an old email that keeps circulating. It's already happened!


If you insist on forwarding emails that sound too good to be true, or spectacular, or whatever, please check them out with  www.snopes.com or www.truthorfiction.com before sending it on. AND.... please if you don't cut and paste and only 'forward' then clean up your emails and take off all the other email addresses. Thanks so much.

What a CUTE banana vegetable.

I may serve gnocchi tonight. With fresh peas, procsiutto and gorgonzola sauce. 1 Pan, plus a green salad- 3 oinks and only 2 dishes.

It will be safer once voice recognition technology takes over texting duties.

THANK YOU for the public service message about passing gossip.Email and Facebook. I hate 90% of political memes because too many give a bad name to horse sh**. Most are harmful to the sender's credibility and to their cause. If something is noble- act noble.
