Good 46º foggy morning. Yesterday we got rain on and off all day. Nice! We now have a total of  8/10".

Today 10-6 in radio code talk means "busy"...

Throw Back Thursday... 1985
Kristen's graduation with her pal Jennifer and me..

Yesterday I got my hair cut. Short! Ahhhhh..... Was going to run errands, but it was late so I just came home. Was in the cooking mood .... so I cut up some asparagus, sliced mushrooms, and cut up a couple tomatoes

Into the oven at 425º for 20 minutes after coating all with olive oil and shaking on garlic salt...

Cooked some angel hair pasta. Drained it. Put it in the big pan with olive oil coating it well, added in the roasted veggies, and heated through on low.

Put a couple Omaha Steak sirloins in the Air Fryer and they cooked PERFECT! So tender.

Great dinner.

National Noodle Day

Noodles ... from the German word "nudel" meaning pasta with egg. In America the there refers to egg noodles as well as Asian forms of pasta. Noodles can be made of wheat, rice, soybean, potato, or other flours like oat, sweet potato, or arrowroot starch, bean curd skin and tofu, and mung bean threads. Italian pasta (the word means "paste" referring to the paste of flour and water from which it's made) is always made from durum wheat flour. Dumplings, including Polish pierogi and Italian gnocchi, and German spaetzle are also considered forms of pasta.
