1957 – Judge Reinhold, American actor
He never impressed me, maybe because he always seemed to play a gawky dorky dumbo. Can't imagine that is too far from his real personality!

Later I got to cooking.

I had some asparagus, spinach & kale ravioli, lemon simmer sauce in the fridge. And some Omaha Steaks Italian meatballs in the freezer.
I boiled the ravioli, baked the meatballs, and boiled the asparagus. I put it all, after draining, in the casserole Crock*Pot on 'warm'.


Then later I added in the lemon simmer sauce on the ravioli and added some cut tomatoes when I served it.


OMGOOOOOD!!!!



By 5:30 the clouds were separating and there was actually blue sky up there!

So, it was dinner on my lap, wine, movie.... I'll tell you about the movie tomorrow. It was called Joy.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.
