Good 46º foggy morning. Yesterday we topped at 55º.
For dinner the other night I cooked a yam in the slow cooker, scrub outside, slit in half lengthwise, put in cooker with water, on high for 3 hours.
Then I added the drained mushrooms to a pan with olive oil and sauteéd them almost crispy.
In the big pan went leftover risotto, the drained canned chicken, mushrooms, and diced up cooked yam. Mixed all together and heated well.... OMGOOOD!!!!

Last night, since it was Popcorn Lover's Day I had popcorn! Melted butter, garlic salt, and bacon salt. (http://www.jdfoods.net/)
For you bacon lovers... they also have Baconnaise! OMGOOOOOD!
Then it was chair, wine, and TV. Tried to watch a couple new shows, but they were not worth my time. Back to the good old standbys.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.
