Drizzle/Snow ~ Ham & Cheese Quiche ~ Easter Eggs ~ Yam & Sole Almondine ~ Potassium

Good 39º cloudy morning.
There appears to be just a sprinkling of snow on my mountain top....

Yesterday stayed cool.... 49º with occasional rain (drizzle) and we probably got 12 or 10 drops of the wet stuff! .. and a touch of blue sky and some sunshine!

My tulips are on their last leg...

and.... my apple tree has started blooming...

Here is a super simple great Ham & Cheese Quiche you can make for Easter Sunday morning... go get the ingredients now....

When I was at Safeway on Wednesday I found these... talk about easy!! Hard boiled colored eggs!!!! They are distributed by Almark Foods in Georgia...

These eggs are PERFECT. Peeled easy and taste wonderful. Now I'm spoiled!!!

Historically this date.....

1846 – The Donner Party of pioneers departs Springfield, Illinois, for California, on what will become a year-long journey of hardship, cannibalism, and survival.

1860 – The first Pony Express rider reaches Sacramento, California.

1865 – U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward and his family are attacked in his home by Lewis Powell.

1969 – At the U.S. Academy Awards there is a tie for the Academy Award for Best Actress between Katharine Hepburn and Barbra Streisand.

And births this date includes.....
1925 – Rod Steiger, American actor (d. 2002)
I always thought he was beyond strange!

1930 – Bradford Dillman, American actor

1932 – Loretta Lynn, American country musician/singer

1936 – Frank Serpico, American policeman

1941 – Julie Christie, British actress

1941 – Pete Rose, American baseball player

1977 – Chandra Levy, American intern (d. 2001)

Later dinner was Sole Almondine (Omaha Steaks) cooked in the Air Fryer and yam. (Cooked in Crock Pot with a little water, low for 4 hours)

Not only are yams a great source of fiber but they are high in potassium.  One medium banana has about 422 milligrams of potassium, which is about 11 percent of the 4700 milligrams adults should get daily. Now yams have about 670 milligrams after cooking ... boiled, or baked.

Next was chair, wine, and TV.

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