Good 51º cloudy morning.
OMGOSH, yesterday was so beautiful. The clouds were amazing and the temp hit 80º, but there was a great breeze and I opened up the house... doors and windows. NICE!!!
This was on I-5 coming back to Rogue River from Grants Pass after a super quick errand.....
From my front porch...
Email pal Gator shared this photo of my pal Trish Bowler who is at the GOP Convention in Cleveland.
Under her picture is the name of my Congressman Greg. He is so awesome. Just love that man for the wonderful things he does for our veterans!
Shared by John Whitley. Thanks John, this would be Dude for sure!!
After Andy and Linda left yesterday
I cooked this dish, becoming one of my most favorites... Saw something similar on FB but couldn't find it after searching later. So, I made up my own version...
Preheat oven to 385º...
Take pieces of bread (I used Seattle sourdough), spray each side of each piece with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. Then with a large spoon make an indentation in each slice, pressing down hard, and do this on the cooking sheet. One with a non-stick liner... ( https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Silicone-Baking-Mat-Pack/dp/B00V5IM0EU/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1468770617&sr=8-4&keywords=non+stick+mat )
Crack one egg into each indentation. Poke the yolk with a super pointy sharp knife.
Next sprinkle on a cheese blend... whatever is your favorite. I then sprinkled on Lawry's garlic salt and some black pepper...
Bake 13 minutes. Take out of oven, plate, and put a thin slice of butter on each.
What amazes me is the bread is soooooooooooo crispy and the egg/cheese is soooooooooooo yummy! Came out perfect for me, whites cooked and the yolk slightly soft.
I could eat this every single day!!!

Always love the poem, "Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41."
Later I had my leftovers from Si Casa Flores. Chair, wine, TV.
When Andy and Linda were here he told me about this show, The Carbonaro Effect ( http://www.trutv.com/shows/the-carbonaro-effect/index.html )
You have to watch this show. It's mind blowing what this guy can do with his magic. Takes people so by surprise!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.

National Daiquiri Day
The cocktail was created in 1898, in the tropical heat of the Cuban town of Daiquiri. Jennings Cox, an American mining engineer working at the local iron mine, had the bartender shake Bacardi rum, sugar and lime with ice.
It was a hit. Word spread and the top bartenders in Havana were shaking it up in no time. It is also possible that William Astor Chanler Sr., a US Congressman who purchased the Santiago Iron Mines in 1902, introduced the Daiquiri to clubs in NY at that time. In 1909 Rear Admiral Lucas W. Johnson, a US Navy medical officer, introduced the drink to the Army and Navy Club in Washington D.C.
The Daiquiri is one of the six classic cocktails highlighted in The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, first published in 1948 and still in print.
