Rain ~ Hat Size ~ Furniture Disrespect ~ Gun Ownership ~ Re Reuben Bake ~ Fast Granma ~ Animal Markings ~ Broccoli Slaw/Stuffed Sole w/ Scallops & Crab ~ TBT ~ Dressed Up Pets

Good 38ยบ cloudy morning. From yesterday we've gotten just over 3/4" of wet stuff!
Yesterday morning it was drizzling here and Brian called to say it was POURING rain in Grants Pass. Fifteen minutes later it was pouring here. Then on and off all day...
Going to be a wet weekend... here and in the south!

Yesterday my back therapy appointment. Then to ACE for some cracked corn to feed the birds. I was teasing Jeb as I was driving out and he was walking in from lunch... a RR police car had just pulled through the ACE parking lot and I told Jeb they had been here looking for him. He said, "that's because I gave the officer the finger." I laughed, and said, "Oh no Jeb, that's not why, they know when you do that you are just telling them your hat size. It must be for something else!"
Prior to OVamit's speech Tuesday I was watching the news and it showed him working with his speech writers. THE IDIOT has his foot on the table! He is soooooooooooooo creepy and uncaring about anything but his super arrogant self! White House furniture gets no respect from him either!!!


When I was gone on Tuesday to Medford for a couple hours, I guess Dude got bored. He has this pig he lays his head on on "his couch"... but apparently Mr. Piggy tasted he pulled a bunch of his stuffing out!

I received this note from friend Cyndi Moreno (wife of Pete!)
" I want to thank you for the receipe you sent yesterday/
The Reuben Bake!!!!   What a winner it was.  I scurried to the store and picked up the things not in my cupboard, and it was Delightful.
We even had leftovers and they were even better!!!  The sauerkraut  gets wetter with the 2nd warming in the microwave, and is just outstanding."
Thanks Cyndi!!!!

I received a bunch of unique animal photos with 'strange' markings from Grace Elliott (LASD ret and wife of Jack, LASD ret). Thought this cat amazing looking...
Nice 'stash' dude!
I got this recipe from Gar Austin (LASD ret). It's for cabbage slaw that used to be made at Chick-fil-A. Instead of the cabbage and shredded carrots I used Broccoli Slaw that contains carrots and red cabbage also..

Chick-fil-A Cole Slaw
4 t. vinegar
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 t. dry  mustard
1/4 t. salt
1 cup mayonnaise
2 10oz bags fine shredded cabbage
1/4 c finely chopped carrots
(or 2 12oz bags broccoli slaw!)
Whisk vinegar, sugar, mustard, and salt together until sugar is dissolved. Add mayonnaise and whisk to mix. Add cabbage and carrots. Mix to combine. Refrigerate 2 hours.
Serves 6-8
I had two bags of the broccoli slaw but only used one. I made the full amount of the dressing, not having dry  mustard so used  1 t. of regular mustard. OMGOSH, this is soooo good!! I put most of the dressing on one bag of the broccoli slaw and saved some for later for sandwiches. I could have eaten the whole bowl of slaw, but was good and refrigerated it for dinner.

The other bag of broccoli slaw I will stir fry with something good.
Dinner was Omaha Steaks ( ) Stuffed Sole with scallops and crabmeat and the broccoli slaw. AWESOMELY GOOD!!!!

Omaha Steaks is always having specials... fun to shop.... beef/pork/lamb/veal, poultry, variety of seafood, vegetables, seasonings and sauces, appetizers, sides, desserts, wines, etc. Oh, and pet treats. They have specials like this one with free shipping:
Just sayin'. They ship in 2 days and everything is frozen in an ice chest with dry ice. Excellent steaks! Love their foods.

Throw Back Thursday... when I worked at UPS... a company we were doing a pick up from was having their Christmas party and invited us to have some of the food. I think this was 1979....

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

Dress Up Your Pet Day

Dress Up Your Pet Day gives you the opportunity to .... you guessed it......dress up your pet!
Some pets like to get dressed up. Others, want nothing to do with it. This day is an opportunity to really dress up your pet(s). Make something for them to wear.  Or, go to a pet store and buy an outfit. It's winter, so something warm is best.
Sorry, I don't have any ideas on how to dress up goldfish.
