Severe Heat & Power Outages ~ Caramel Pecan Roll ~ NYC Flatiron Building ~ Wine ~ Sole Almondine & Veggies ~ Healing Dude

Good 55┬║clear sunny morning.
That moon was soooooooooooooo bright last night. Tonight will be the same!

We got up to 98┬║ yesterday. We've been so lucky with the triple digits hitting so many places! Southern and Northern California are melting! So are some places in Idaho! Espcially in Arizona and Nevada! There is a severe heat advisory for today in most of central California from LA to north of Sacramento. Also in some spots of Utah and Montana. Plus Los Angeles had two power outages yesterday that affected thousands, 140,000 to be exact!
So.... yesterday I got my Schwans order. Normally scheduled for every other Tuesday, but this last one was the 4th, so delivery delayed. Anyway, I ordered some Caramel Pecan Rolls. Keep frozen, 40-50 seconds in the microwave.

One bite and I was HOOKED! Once I started eating it I could NOT stop! OMGOOOOOOD!!!! Good thing there are only 6 to a box!

This Flatiron Building in NY always interested me...

Flatiron Building, NYC. Built in 1902. (architect Daniel Hudson Burnham) This building was originally the Fuller Building. It is a triangular 22 story steel-framed landmarked building located at 175 Fifth Avenue. When built it was one of the tallest buildings in NY. The building sits on a triangular block formed by Fifth Avenue, Broadway, and East 22nd Street. It derived it's name from the resemblance to a cast-iron clothing iron. The neighborhood around it is called the Flatiorn District. Designated as a NYC landmark in 1966, added to the National Register of Historical Places in 1979, and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1989.

Last night Jen, Tucker, Sami, and my grandson Jackson arrived at the airport from LA. Now we're going to give Jack the Nickel Tour of our area for a few days. Should be fun!

I used to think wine was bad for me.
So, I gave up thinking!

Dinner was another sole almondine, cooked in Air Fryer, with some vegetables. I put olive oil in the big pan, added in about 2 T of crushed garlic, half a cup of water, the veggies, turned on med high and left an opening between the lid and pan. They steamed for about 5 minutes.
   Perfectamente hecho!

Chair, wine, TV... Family Fude, My Cat From Hell, Rookie Blue. Dude was napping. He's been good about licking that surgery spot! He's on antibiotics and a pain pill. Not showing any signs of pain, so will stop that today.

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

Five Food Finds about Cookies:

  1. American cookie jars evolved from British biscuit jars and first appeared on the scene during the Depression in the 1930s when housewives began making more cookies at home, rather than buying them at the bakery, and needed containers for them.
  2. Early American tinsmiths began making cookie cutters by hand back in the 1700s.
  3. The U.S. has a National Cookie Cutter Historical Museum located within the Joplin Museum Complex in Joplin, Missouri.
  4. In 1989, New Mexico named the ‘bizcochito’ its official state cookie. Bizcochito, derived from the spanish word ‘bizcocho’ which means biscuit, is a delicious shortbread cookie flavored with anise and topped with cinnamon sugar.
  5. The U.S. leads the world as the biggest cookie bakers and eaters, spending more than $550 million annually on Oreos alone.
