Cat Decal ~ Mexican Lasagna ~ Linda Kuehl ~ Jon Harting ~ Jelly Bean Shirts ~ Hammock Day

Good 50º cloudy morning. Looks like lots of rain up in Washington and around Victoria where Andy and Linda went for the car club event.

I saw on Amazon this cat decal. I have a rear window windshield wiper so I ordered one....
How funny is that!!!!

I shared this old recipe of mine with friend, Karen SugarBear 
... so I thought, "why not share with everyone."... Here it is...

Mexican Lasagna
Interesting how the two flags are so much alike!

1 pound ground beef         1 lg can refried beans
2 t. ground oregano          2 t. ground cumin
1 t. garlic powder               12 uncooked lasagna
2 1/2 cups bottled salsa 
2½ cups water                   2 cups sour cream
1 cup diced onions             2 cans sliced olives
2 cups grated cheese         
Combine the uncooked ground beef and refried beans in large bowl. Add oregano, cumin, and garlic powder. Mix well. (hands are best!) Spray 13x9 baking dish with cooking spray. Place uncooked noodles on bottom of dish, 4 across (overlap a little) and break end off one and place sideways. Spread half the meat bean mixture over the noodles. Top with more noodles and the remaining meat mixture. Top with more noodles.
Combine salsa and water. Mix well. Pour over all. Cover with foil and bake at 350º for 1½ hours. Make sure to place pan on cookie sheet under dish, as it always overflows!
Combine sour cream, onions, and olives. Spoon mixture over top of casserole and top with grated cheese. Bake uncovered until cheese melts.

I like to dice 3 green onions and dice a tomato and sprinkle on top when done.

Dinner was reruns as I watched the GOP Convention. Unfortunately I fell asleep and missed some of it. Apparently pal Trish was interviewed on Fox Special Report and I missed that! Lydia said she recorded it and might be able to share. Fingers crossed!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.

Hammock Day

Summer is in full swing. It's time to slow down and to relax. During the Dog Days of summer (and all of the other summer days, too), there is no better place to slow down and relax, than on a hammock.
Hammock Day is appropriately celebrated right in the middle of the Dog Days of summer (July 3 though August 11th.

Hammock Day exists to enjoy summer as it should be enjoyed. People celebrate Hammock Day by spending as much time relaxing on it as possible. Getting out of your hammock to get a snack, or your favorite summer beverage is okay. But, it is not a day for work. Cutting the lawn is forbidden on this day.
