Good 61º clear sunny morning.
Warmed up some more yesterday. We hit 95º.
Dude was not happy outside, too hot for my big guy! Happy in the cool house.
Yesterday I met up with Brian, Jen, Tucker, Sami, and Jean at a new place in town, Lulu's, for brunch.
It's very small and of course the place was super crowded for Father's Day.
I was stuffed. Had a ham sandwich served with an egg on top and with holandise sauce.
Came home, put out the trash for tomorrow's pick up, picked up my mail, and started working on this blog. Kept thinking I was SOOOOOO full that dinner was the farthest thing from my mind. Brian and family were going to the movies in the afternoon. A nice choreless Dad's Day for Brian!
If you like Mexican Corn on the Cob you will like this... Mexican Corn Salad.
2 T butter
3 cups corn (about 4 ears) cut from the cob*
½ jalapeño, seeded and finely diced
3 T mayonnaise
1 clove garlic, grated
2 green onions, sliced
1 handful cilantro, chopped
1 lime, juice
2 T cotija or feta cheese, crumbled
chili powder to taste
1. Melt butter in heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
2. Add corn, toss and let it sit cooking until charred, mix it up and let it char again, about 6-10 minutes
3. Add jalapeño, saute for a minute and remove from heat
4. Mix eveything and serve warm or cold or room temperature.
Adding one diced avocado is amazing!
*An easy way to cut corn from the cob is to set the bottom of the cob on the hole in the center of a bundt pan, slice down through the kernals and then fall into the pan. Works perfect!
Special birthday today, Laura (Vincent) Verant. She is a former neighbor of ours and she and Kristen were pals... HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAURA!
Historically this date..............
1978 – Garfield, holder of the Guinness World Record for the world's most widely syndicated comic strip, makes its debut.
And births this date include...
... this yummy man had been married to his one and only wife since 1946! until his death.
Later I had watched a couple fav shows, "Wildlife Docs", which is so interesting with all the animals... and "Beach Bites" with Katie Lee.
I like her and she goes to some super neat mouth-watering beach restaurants, but she eats, like most of those on TV anymore, with her left hand on the fork, knife in rigth hand, and then does not switch and eats with the upside down fork.
That is NOT what we were taugh as far as table manners. If you cut with the knife in the right hand then you switch the fork back to your right hand and hold it upright.
Sigh......................... And I enjoyed a couple episodes of Family Feud.
Out in the yard a couple times yesterday was this doe. She was happily eating grass, then the rose bush leaves. She is so skinny with her ribs showing! Poor baby.
Dinner, after a lot of consideration, was a few pieces of celery dipped into the egg salad from the other day. Not hungry.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

James Bond liked his "shaken not stirred". I like mine with vodka, "dirty" (with olive juice), shaken and strained, or "up".
