Good 44º raining morning. Got 1/2" over night and still coming down.
Yesterday I was tired, so enjoyed a belated Goof Off Day. When I had my car windows tinted I didn't get home til nearly 8:30pm and was too tired to even fix dinner. So, yesterday I got out the corned beef/veggie soup I made and added in a can of peas (including liquid) and more chicken stock.
SUPER good!!!! Loved it for lunch AND dinner!! When I heated it for dinner I added in a big handful of fresh baby spinach. OMGOOOD!!!
Friend Alice Reardon (wife of the infamous Pat Reardon LASD ret)
fell off a ladder the other day and broke her hip. POOR THING! She had surgery yesterday and Pat said she's doing really well. Was going to hook up with them in Laughlin this year for the LASD reunion, but they won't be going.

Here is an easy GOOD mashed potato casserole.....
What You'll Need:
5 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons minced onion
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 (2.8-ounce) can French-fried onions, coarsely chopped
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking
- Place potatoes in a soup pot, add just enough water to cover them, and bring
to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook 12 to 15 minutes, or
until fork-tender; drain.
- In a large bowl, with an electric beater on medium speed, beat potatoes and
cream cheese until smooth. Add onion, eggs, flour, parsley, salt, and pepper,
and continue to beat until well blended.
- Spoon potato mixture into prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle with French-fried onions and bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until heated through and edges are golden.
Last night while it was chair, wine, and TV I had some great phone conversations with pals...
Then it was Cops Reloaded, Blue Bloods, and Chicago Fire.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.
