Police Stop ~ Maple Bacon Salted Caramels ~ First Date 1974 ~ Freedom for Bull ~ Quinoa & Turkey Meatballs ~ White and Red Clam Chowder



Good 35º cloudy morning. A few sprinkles of rain late yesterday and now there is a bit more of snow on my mountain.


Just read about a man held at gunpoint by police because a passerby saw him putting kids into the trunk of his car.

He was driving a Tesla that looked like this one.
But......... he was released and not charged when the police discovered the "trunk" has rear facing seats!

Ya just never know!


Ok, THE BEST candy caramels I have EVER had are Maple Bacon Salted Caramels. I bought them some time ago at a Hallmark store. They are sold on line by the manufacturer:


Yesterday stayed  cold and gloomy. Sigh... So I worked more on my taxes. Joy.


On this date in 1974 Jerry and I had our first date. He took me to a restaurant in Hastings Village (Foothill Blvd East Pasadena) which is now Panera Bread, but for the life of me can't remember the name back then. We were never separated from that date. We fell in love instantly! A couple months later he moved in with me and we married in June 1975.

This is awesome.... a bull who had been chained up his whole life is set free and what he does is such fun... I had happy tears!


Later for dinner I cooked some quinoa in the rice cooker along with some garlic, butter, and mushrooms.



Then I heated some turkey meatballs and the other 3 of the Veggie cakes in the microwave.

Put everything in the Crock Pot on warm. Topped it all with grated cheese....


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

Boston (as they say back there "Bass-ten") calls it "Cuppachowda" !! Ya gots to have the Bassten accent down right!
There are basically two types of clam chowder... the white chowder (Boston style) and the red chowder (Manhattan style)
