Shade ~ Andy & Linda ~ Yams ~ Trish Bowler ~ Mexican Pizza ~ Diamondbacks vs Dodgers ~ Brandon Drury

Good 52º overcast morning. Yesterday another high of 85º with a breeze most of the day. The tom turkeys spent most of the day standing and laying in the shade...
It was a pretty day!

Today the arrival of my pals Linda and Andy will happen later this afternoon. They are traveling in their new roadster, 1932,  to a hot rod club function in Canada. They will spend the night here. Can't wait! 

Yesterday I accomplished very little! I did manage to cook a couple yams in the crock pot...

This is funny... shared by high school pal Greg Lundell:

My pal Trish Bowler
(wife of John .. LASD ret) , in Diamond Bar, is in Cleveland. She arrived from LAX at 5am their time. She is a delegate to the convention along with her son Daryl who is an alternate. Should be interesting! She will share pictures.

Ok, this made me drool..... Mexican Pizza... two awesome favorite things rolled into one!

1 cup refried beans
4 6" flour tortillas
1/3 cup enchilada sauce
1 med tomato, diced
2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese blend
2 green onions, chopped
cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400º.
Spray skillet with cooking spray and brown and crisp the tortillas on both sides. Save for later.
Place two of the browned tortillas on a sheet pan and spread half the heated refried beans on top of each. Place the remaining tortillas on top of the beans.
Pour and evenly spread half the enchilada sauce on top of each tortilla. Top each with half the tomato and half the cheese and sprinkle half the green onion on top.
Bake 8-10 minutes until cheese has melted. Allow to sit a few minutes before cutting and serving.

Later I had some Progresso Lite Potato and Bacon Cheese soup.

Then it was chair, wine, and TV. I watched the Diamondbacks Dodgers baseball game. It went 12 innings after the Dodgers led 1-0 til the 9th when the Diamondbacks tied it up. In the 12th my son Brian's friend Brandon Drury ( )
hit the winning run. Brandon is a local Grants Pass guy and last weekend Brian Jen and family went to San Francisco to see him play the SF Giants... Brandon with his younger brother, Sami, and Tucker...

National Ice Cream Day

National Ice Cream Day - 3 rd Sunday in July
When you get the urge for a snack on a hot, humid summer night, what's the first thing that comes to your mind? That's right....Ice Cream! Therefore, it's only fitting that ice cream be given it's own special day. On this day, we hope you enjoy an ice cream cone, a sundae, or a milk shake. Set the diet aside and splurge a little...have one of each!
In 1984, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed July as National Ice Cream Month. He also established National Ice Cream Day as the third Sunday in the month.
Ice cream is nutritious. A little heavy on the sugar and calories, ice cream is otherwise good for you. Its base ingredient is milk, which is loaded with healthy vitamins and minerals.

Did you know? Charles E. Minches of St. Louis, Missouri is credited with inventing the ice cream cone. On July 23, 1904 at the World's Fair in St. Louis, he filled a pastry cone with two scoops of ice cream to make the first ice cream cone. There is some controversy over this claim. Italo Marchiony of New York City filed a patent for the ice cream cone months before the fair opened. And, he was selling lemon ice in cones as early as 1896.
