Heats A'Comin' ~ Clouds ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Schwans Scrambles ~ Mike ~ Dude ~ Tornado States ~ Georgia Sue's Chile Rellano Casserole ~ Veggie/Pasta/Steak Dinner

Good 46º clear sunny morning.

Yesterday we warmed to 85º. Had doors and windows open, nice breeze. Really comfy! House stays very cool.

Yesterday the clouds were amazing. Just loved them... These are Cirrus and Cirrocumulus clouds:

Throw Back Thursday
The one and only time I was in jail! 1953:

Yesterday was busy... first Dude was a happy camper getting to eat! 
Me too. I had some of the Egg Scrambles I got from Schwans... frozen, into micorwave for 2 minutes 20 sec. They have a thin crust and filled with scrambled egg, bacon, and cheese.
I had the scrambles with some applesauce topped with cranrasins. YUMMMMMMM!!!!

I had called the golf cart company, Tuesday, telling them mine is not running well and was told he'd see how busy he was yesterday and if he can pick it up. Never called me~! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.......... We'll see if he calls today, if not I will call them back~!

Mike came over about 11:30 and started mowing.

Dude was happy to see him and kept an eye on him while he mowed... He stopped mowing and will be back Friday to finish more.

Another reason why I live in Oregon!

This recipe for Chile Rellaño Casserole was posted by pal Georgia Sue on FB. Easy and  sounds/looks HEAVENLY!

15 oz can whole green chilies, divided in two
1 pound Monterey Jack or Longhorn cheese, grated, divided in two
2 T. flour
4 T. butter
1 dozen eggs
12 oz can evaporated milk
1. Preheat oven to 350º. Greese casserole dish (using cooking spray is best).
2. Remove seeds from chilis.
3. Layer the green chilies then the cheese in the casserole dish
4. Sprinkle the flour and slices of butter on top, then add another layer of chilies and cheese
5. In mixing bowl beat the eggs and evaporated milk together and pour over the casserole.
6. Bake for one hour.
7. Serve with sour cream and salsa. Makes 12 servings.
8. Precooked chorizo can be added in a layer before the cheese if desired.

Later for dinner I put a broccoli/cauliflower/carrot combo in the big pan with olive oil and garlic and tomato and sauteéd ...
while I cooked some bot tie pasta.....

When the pasta was done I added it to the pan along with about 3/4 cup of the cooking water and a couple pats of butter and let it all heat through. In the meantime I cooked a sirloin steak in the air fryer.... PERFECT!!!!!
In the air fryer at 370º for 13 minutes.... still rare in the middle!

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