Throw Back Thursday ~ Lucas Nelson ~ Stay! ~ Wendy Harp ~ Leah Moran ~ Ike Saben ~ Jan & Ben ~ Marion's Tuna Casserole ~ Popcorn Lover's Day

Good 47º super foggy morning. With all the drizzle  the rain in the gauge is up to 2" now.

Happy Throw Back Thursday....
This was the first "business card" I made, with my old site that is not in use anymore.

We had quite a collection of pets back then..

Yesterday the gloom just hung around. We warmed to 58º.
I finally finished up my taxes and got them ready to mail. YES! Pain in the ___! Then I vacuumed some
, did a couple loads of laundry,
 and washed dishes

. Wow, over the top excitement.

I was amazed at Willie Nelson's son Lucas, how he nails his dad's song "Always On My Mind" and sounds just like him!!!

Here is a good one shared by pal Dave Clark (LASD ret) .....
I pulledinto the crowded parking lot at our local shopping center and rolled down the car windows to make sure  my Labrador Retriever pup had fresh air....

She was stretched  full-out on the back seat and I wanted to impress upon her that she must remain there. I walked to the curb backwards, pointing my finger at the car and saying emphatically, "Now you stay. Do you understand me?"
"Stay. Stay."
(This is going to hurt. Read on....)
The driver of a nearby car, a pretty young blonde, gave me a strange look, and said, "Why don't you just put it in 'park' ?"

Today is over the top for special people...
Birthdays today:

Wendy (former nurse) and her hubby Rick (former LACO Fire Chief on Catalina)  still live in Avalon. She is a horse enthusiast!

Next is my go to hair girl, Leah Moran Thomas.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY Leah!!!! ox

Next is pal Ike Saben (LASD ret). HAPPY BIRTHDAY IKE!!!! xo
                                         Love your new digs! :o)

And lastly is the 37th Anniversary of niece (on the Pendleton side) Jan and her Ben. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY kids!
Jan with my Kristen (no pictures of Ben!)

Here's a recipe my sister Marion sent to me in 1999. GOOD!!! I cook like she did, I make up recipes as I go along... This she called
                            Marion's Gourmet Tuna Casserole

1 large can water packed tuna, drained and forked into small pieces
1 bag egg noodles
1 cup sour cream
1/2 pkg baby spinach leaves
30 small mushrooms, crispy fried in olive oil
1 can cream of mushroom soup with garlic
corn bread stuffing
cube butter

Spray cooking spray in casserole dish.
Cook and drain noodles.
Mix sour cream, tuna, fried mushrooms, and spinach
Place half the noodles in the baking dish
Spread half the tuna mixture on top
Drop by spoonfuls half of the mushroom soup
Repeat layers
Top with stuffing mix, enough to cover
Melt butter and drizzle over stuffing.
Bake 350º 35-45 minutes...until bubbly.

This could be made with canned salmon, or even canned chicken.

Later it was reruns for dinner, chair, wine (thank goodness!) and TV (Chicago PD).

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

March 9th
Popcorn Lover's Day
(That will be tonight's dinner!!!)

Date When Celebrated : Second Thursday in March
Many of us love popcorn. So, it only makes sense that there should be a special day just for popcorn lovers.
Popcorn is good for you, when eaten plain. It is not as healthy, when it's loaded with salt and butter. (What fun is that?????)
This day is intended to enjoy popcorn and share it with others. Bring some to work. Or microwave some and put in in a basket in your office.
You can have it in a traditional way, with salt and butter. Or, you can add anyone of a number of flavors to it. Some popular flavors are cheddar cheese, parmesan garlic, and even hot pepper! There is no requirement as what seasoning to use today, as long as your eat plenty popcorn. Now, that's not hard to do, is it!? (Sriracha and melted butter poured over and cheddar cheese... yummmmm!)

It's also National Crabmeat Day... so make the crab cakes I posted on yesterday's blog.
