Throw Back Thursday ~ Karen Tomes ~ Pete & Cyndi Moreno ~ Artoff Plumbing ~ Hawaii Five-O


Good 53º clear sunny morning.   Be careful out there... almost a full moon! 


Yesterday warmed to 93º and again, there was a nice breeze.


Happy Throw Back Thursday..........
2009 on a trip to Greece. Two Greek Policemen, a little standoffish until I told them my relationship to law enforcement.


Yesterday was grocery shopping day. Left Dude home in the cool house. Don't often take him anywhere in the summer unless it's going to the drive-through for my prescriptions and the car stays on and the AC. I loaded up on lots of veggies, a new kind of canned food to try on Dude, wine, and had a fun chat with the new checker. She enjoyed it too and told me to come back to her line next time!


Today Karen Tomes, wife of the infamous Larry Tomes (LASD ret) is celebrating her birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAREN!!!!

Later my plumber friend Mike Artoff came by to change the filter in my pump house.
Mike loves to fish with his boys:
His dad, Marty, was friends with my Jerry.


So, then for dinner I cooked a marinated salmon filet in the Air Fryer and steamed some asparagus in a little water, olive oil, and garlic salt. And I topped the pasta/veggie salad with tomatoes.
                                OMGOOOOOD!!

Chair, wine, TV....


I was sad to read that Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Chin Ho Kelly on Hawaii Five-O, and Grace Park, who plays Kono Kalakua will both be leaving the show. The show has run since 2010 and they both have been on since the beginning.
 


All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.

National Fried Chicken Day**

National Fried Chicken Day is day to enjoy crisp and tasty, finger licking good fried chicken.
Fried chicken is one of America's favorite meals. Sure, we all know that fried foods are not good for us. But, fried chicken tastes ohhhhh so good. We just can't resist having it on a regular basis.
There's just one thing you need to do celebrate this day: Eat some fried chicken. You can have it for lunch, dinner or cold leftovers as a snack. Better still, have it for lunch, dinner, AND for a snack.

** you might check your local chicken places (KFC, Chick-fil-A, Pollo Loco, etc) for specials on chicken today.

mmmmm That fried chicken looks so crispy and yummy! I only eat white meat but that picture makes me want to eat it all. :)

I see you are still eating on that pasta salad. I am still eating on mine too. However, I finally dumped what was left of the potato salad last night. I am surprised there was any left! I left a big container full out at Daryl's house as it is his favorite. (Could be that the men around here are dieting)

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRESIDENT G.W. BUSH!

At least you have a big crowd to eat what you cook, T !!! Yes, HB to President Bush. I always sent him birthday cards to the White House and he would always send me a note in return! So nice!!! xo

Fried chicken..... we haven't been to Mrs. Knotts since it remodeled... maybe while our unofficial grandchildren are here. Getting ready for the carpet cleaners here- my only demand for dinner is that it doesn't come with any extra work for me):-

Oregon Sue said...

Ahhh yes, we used to enjoy Mrs. Knotts fried chicken!!! xo

OK Girls you really have set my mouth to watering talking about Mrs. Knott's chicken dinners! It's all the fixins that go with it. The cabbage with bits of ham, rhubarb in the syrup. Then the mash potatoes with that fabulous gravy and the best part those fabulous biscuits with boysenberry jam! OMG!!! I always order the chicken breast. :)
If only my guys were dieting we would go there right away! :)
