So. Cal Flooding ~ Jar Head BBQ Sauce ~ Dogs & Babies ~ John Wayne's Cheese Casserole ~ Professions & Names ~ Peanut Butter Day

Good foggy everything is frozen white 31º morning.

The rain in Southern/Northern California is wild. Here is a photo of the 110 Freeway in Carson... flooded!

Jar Heads.... check this out... Jar Head BBQ Sauce!!

The other day, friend Lynn Helbing (LASD ret) shared this dogs playing with babies video... OMGOSH, so cute. Put a huge smile on my face, and Bruiser was sitting on my desk watching, hypnotized!!

I received some emails from a few about John Wayne. Always a favorite in our family. My Jerry was named after him! Actually his mother wanted to name him John Wayne Maxwell, but his father put his foot down, so he was named Jerry Wayne Maxwell!!  Anyway, John Wayne loved a cheese casserole.... and this was his favorite:
John Wayne's Cheese Casserole
(sorry about the picture... one I copied off years ago...)

2 cans (4oz size) green chilies, drained
1 pound Monterey Jack cheese, grated
1 pound Cheddar cheese, grated
4 egg whites
4 egg yolks
2/3 cup canned evaporated milk, undiluted
1 T. flour
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
3 medium tomatoes, sliced
1. Preheat oven to 375º. Remove seeds from chilies and dice.
2. In large bowl, combine cheeses and chilies. Turn into well-buttered shallow 9x12,  2 quart casserole.
3. In a large bowl with electric mixer combine egg whites, beating until stiff peaks form.
4. In small bowl combine egg yolks, milk, flour, salt, and pepper until well blended.
5. Using a rubber scraper, fold egg whites into yolk mixture. Pour egg mixture over cheese. Using a fork "ooze" it through the cheese.
6. Bake 30 minutes. Remove from oven, adding sliced tomatoes on top overlapping around edge. Bake another 30 minutes, or until knife inserted in center of casserole comes out clean. Garnish with a sprinkling of chilies if desired.
