Clouds/Rain/Touch of Sun ~ Pineapple Upside Down Cake ~ John Wayne ~ RWB Sweatshirt ~ Cats Waiting for Mail ~ Vegetables & Steak


Good 46º cloudy with spots of sun morning....
Picture 1, "my mountain" Fielder Mtn looking SW. Picture 2 looking NW. Picture 3 looking N. And finally back to "my mountain".......
Shoot, it looks like Fall, not Spring!!!




Yesterday stayed gloomy cloudy all day with an occasional rain drop until early evening when the rain started up more. Heard it in the night and we ended up with 3/4".  
Breakfast was a couple hard boiled eggs, some fresh mozzarella cheese, coffee, and an upside down pineapple cake (Omaha Steaks). Take cake from freezer, microwave 55 seconds, turn upside down on dish. Easy and SOOOOOOOO good!!!!

From the Omaha site:
Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes
Nostalgic flavor with modern flair: individual Upside-Down Cakes combine traditional deliciousness with nearly instant prep time and a smart, convenient size. After all, the engaging flavors combine so beautifully. You have the buttery, moist, tender sponge cake with a little bit of baked crisp around the bottom edge. Then the sweet, silky brown sugar sauce grabs your attention right before you surrender to the sweet/tart grand prize... the pineapple ring crowning the cake. Savor this piece of the past soon!


Here's a poem by John Wayne .... The Sky. Just for you Brian!!!


I went on the Veteran's site and bought this zip front sweatshirt...

It also comes in pullover. Part of the money you spend goes to homeless and hungry Veterans for meals.
Trish, you'd find something here for sure, they have a red/white/blue sequined top that is you!

This video is cute... cats waiting for the mail...

Later for dinner I wanted vegetables....

So I put the mushrooms in a sauté pan with butter... then added in the chopped red bell pepper.... and spiral cut squash....



Meanwhile I put the cut broccoli, cauliflower, celery, and carrots in a pan with water to steam for a bit to get rid of the  crunchiness... then added to the sauté pan with a little more butter and garlic salt...



The steak, sirloin 2" thick was frozen and so I cooked it in the Air Fryer at 370º with a drizzle of olive oil and Lawry's Garlic Salt for 20 minutes. PERFECT!!!!



Later it was the usual, chair, wine, TV.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.

April 18th
National Animal Crackers Day



Here are today’s five things to know about Animal Crackers

  1. The famous Barnum’s animal crackers box was originally a Christmas ornament hung by a string.  The string can still be found on boxes.
  2. A box of Animal Crackers sold for 5 cents in 1902.
  3. Animal Crackers originated in England where they were known as animal biscuits.
  4. 54 different animals have been created as animal crackers. The most popular brand, Barnum’s Animal Crackers, has featured 37 different animals since 1902.
  5. The most recent addition to the Barnum’s animal crackers is the Koala bear.

Fun Fact:

Over the years, the only ones that have survived the entire lifetime of the product are bears, elephants, lions and tigers.
Shirley Temple sang “Animal crackers in my soup, Monkeys and rabbits loop the loop,”, but rabbits never found their way into a box of Barnum’s Animal Crackers.
The name referred to P. T. Barnum (1810-1891), the famous circus owner and showman.

I love love your Americana sweat shirt but then you knew I would! :) I am finished buying for a good long time. I bought a couple of things for the August cruise and that's it. :) Thanks for thinking of me.

mmmmmI love veggies and your dinner looked terrific. Was the steak totally frozen when you put it in the Air Fryer? That would be good to know as I don't always think to take meat out of the freezer in time for it to thaw. Hate thawing in the microwave but sometimes have to.

In the Easter bags I made for the grand kids I found animal crackers in a darling box with a handle with a big Easter bunny on the sides. They loved it.

Yes, T, the steak was frozen solid when I put it in the Air Fryer. xo

A blessed afternoon to you. Nice to have a break in the action to catch-up.
I don't usually "do" Omaha steaks- but think this is a good time to stock up on pre-made meals by the company you and Trisha brag-on.

While I don't wear flag clothing- I enjoy the enthusiasm of people who do.

Yes, L, I'm sure you need breaks from the upheaval that is going on. Good thoughts coming your way! Everything, except the baked stuffed potatoes, from Omaha are awesome and make dinner so easy!!! xo
