Yesterday was my yearly eye check up appointment with Dr. Jeffery Pelson

at The Eye Care Group in Grants Pass...

My eyes were totally checked, photographed, and dilated.

He said there is nothing wrong with them. Everything looked great and there is not even any change in my eyeglass prescription! Yes!!!

This is interesting information... Brian was telling me about Michael Phelps body size ... in comparison to most of the rest of us.

Today is the anniversary of Patty and Cliff's Chuck and his bride Linda. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!!! (no current photos of you guys!)

Today is JPB's bride, Gail's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GAIL!!!
JPB was Jerry's nickname for Sgt Bruce Harris at the BC Range... meaning "Just Plain Bruce".

Everything went into the pan except the gnocchi, that had to be boiled...

After the gnocchi was cooked it went into the pool and everything stirred and heated well.....

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

August 11, 2016 is
National Raspberry Tart Day
Today is National Raspberry Tart Day! The tart is the perfect combination of crispy crust, creamy filling, and fresh fruit. Tarts originated during the Middle Ages. Although sweet fruit-topped tarts are the most popular, many savory and salty varieties also exist. For example, in France, many of these open-faced pies are made with eggs, cheeses, meats, and vegetables. Whether you prefer them filled with chocolate or goat cheese, tarts are always delicious!
To celebrate National Raspberry Tart Day, head to your local bakery to pick up one of these fresh-baked delights! Feeling creative? Make your own raspberry tart!
If you feel like cooking, you can make a raspberry tart yourself and treat your family and friends. Here is a quick and easy raspberry tart recipe for you.
In a bowl, blend together 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup butter, and 2 tbs confectioners' sugar. Let the mixture chill for 1 hour. Pat chilled dough into a 9-inch tart pan. Bake at 375 °F for 10 minutes. Remove crust from the oven and cool.
Arrange 4 cups fresh raspberries in crust. Heat 8 ounce raspberry jam in microwave until it begins to boil. Pour jam over raspberries. Cover the tart and put in the fridge for about 1 hour before serving.
