Turmoil In The World ~ Muscle Beach Prank ~ Dr. Joe ~ Corn/Crab Cakes/Avocado ~ Spinach


Good 49º clear sunny morning. 85º our high yesterday.
 
Turkey and France are going through so much hell right now. So sad. Also, as my pal Joan said, maybe because of all that terror and all those deaths the BLM decided not to do their Friday Rage thing. Didn't hear anything about it.
 
 
Yesterday was sort of a loss. I felt as if I was coming down with a cold. Stuffy, sneezy, icky. So took Zycam and didn't do much! Feeling better today. And, no, I didn't get the stationary bike put together. Soon!

Dinner was easy... I cooked some corn on the cob. First put vinegar in the water, bring to boil, add a bunch of garlic salt, drop in the corn, remove from heat, leave lid on, it will be ready when you eat.  

As I have said before, the vinegar keeps the corn from getting mushy. Stays crunchy. I keep a bottle (yes, and old vodka bottle) next to the stove with vinegar in it. I like things handy when cooking. Don't like having to go dig in cupboards. 

I baked some crab cakes......

Pomegranate mayo on the avocado, BF Southwestern Ranch on the crab cakes....
   PERFECT!!!
 
Then it was iced tea (not in the mood for wine, can you imagine!), chair, and NCIS Los Angeles and a Blue Bloods.
 
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.

Fresh Spinach Day

 
Fresh Spinach  Day is our opportunity to put healthier food into our diets.
 
Popeye the Sailor is right. Spinach is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. It tastes good, and there are many recipes. Many people turn up their nose to it, without even trying it.
 
The reason for eating fresh spinach, is the nutritional value is highest, when it is fresh and uncooked.
 
Celebrate this day by introducing some fresh spinach to your meals today. You could start by mixing in some spinach into your garden salad. Your family may not even notice, but by doing so, you are making them healthier!
 
Gardeners know that spinach is easy to grow. And, it's hardy. You can plant it as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring. Why, that's today in many parts of the country! More on Growing Spinach.
 
There is another day that we celebrate this healthy vegetable. It's National Spinach Day, celebrated on March 26th. We think it is great that there are two days to celebrate this wonderful vegetable, and to encourage people to eat healthier.
 

Did You Know? V-8 Vegetable Juice is not just tomato juice. It includes 8 vegetables. One of them is Spinach.
