Odd Photo ~ Elephant Rescue ~ Veal Patty/Risotto ~ Sunday NFL Scores ~ Monday NFL Game ~ Waffle Day


Good 43º drizzly morning. Another 1/10" of the wet stuff in the night. Looks like it's raining on my mountain right now. More on the way. 


Picture of the day...

LOL, someone certainly got a great shot, one that makes you say, "how'd she do that floating thing?"


Yesterday was mop the kitchen floor day and take the trash to the road for today's pickup. Excitement abounds.


This is something. They let this elephant struggle for 11 hours to save it's baby from a well. FINALLY some people stepped up!!!!


The bystanders distracted the mother and saved the baby ... they were reunited.

Later dinner was leftover breaded veal patty heated with sauteéd mushrooms and some risotto.... of course and some tomato. This risotto I get at Safeway, one of their own products. Made with rice, cream, white wine, Parmesan and Romano cheese. SO good! 


Sunday Football scores:

Of course you know who I was rooting for, but sad my Tootie's team lost at the same time. Also watched the Broncos Chiefs game. OMGOSH! Tied at the end of the game, over time and tied up again, and the final kick the Chiefs won. Rooting for Broncos. Ah well..............
And don't forget tonight, Monday:

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

See, you can cook anything just about in a waffle iron .... cookie dough, cornbread.... spray or grease the waffle iron liberally, put a tortilla on there and cook until golden and make quesadillas .... or butter a piece of bread both sides and waffle it.... shred potatoes and waffle them and top with an egg...

I have to say, GS, both waffle iron and air fryer are two of my most favorite kitchen fun appliances!!! I even cook burgers or steaks on the waffle iron sometimes! OK, what's next? Will work on that. xo
