Blood Test ~ Clouds ~ STUPID Anthony Bourdain ~ Bacon Cheddar Ranch Pull Apart Bread ~ Teddy Bear Day

Good 60º dark gloomy morning. Smoke still out there. What gets me is the shorter days. This was the 6am darkness and now it's the 7am darkness.

Yesterday morning I left early and headed to GP for a fasting blood test at Three Rivers Hospital.

I got there about 7:45. I was talking to the gal who signed me in about getting out so early. (Being retired has made a lot of changes in my morning hours!) And I told her how desperate for hot tea or coffee I was. She told me the lab in the building with Urgent Care had their lab open at 6am. WAHHHHT? Why in the world would I want to get up at 4:30 am to go take a blood test???? UGH.
Geeeeze. Got back home at 9 and made coffee immediately!

We actually had some sun yesterday and I could even see some clouds!!!! OMGOSH. I could see my mountain!!!!

Dude was happy outside with less smoke and some sun....

With the sun coming through we warmed to 88º.

I guess I will not watch Anthony Bourdain shows anymore.
He said in an interview, with lots of the F word, that if he had to serve a meal to Kim Jong Un and President Trump, he'd poison them~! That North Korean one I can understand, but our President? Come on...................... those kind of threats are STUPID!

Soooooo............. how about Bacon Cheddar Ranch Pull Apart Bread? OMG..... I am drooling. Gotta go get a loaf of Italian Bread!

1 loaf Italian Bread
8oz. shredded Mexican cheese blend
16oz crisp cooked bacon, diced
½ cup butter, melted
1 T. Hidden Valley Ranch dry dressing mix

Preheat oven to 350º. Prepare 2 sheets of aluminum foil to wrap the bread in, overlap the foil so the bread will be completely covered.

On the cutting board, slice the bread in 3/4 inch slice intervals, being careful not to cut all the way through. Cut again, crosswise, not cutting all the way through.

Slide the bread onto the foil and stuff the cheese between all the cuts. Sprinkle with the bacon. Mix the melted butter with the dry dressing mix and drizzle it over the top of the bread evenly.

Wrap in foil snuggly around the bread, bake 15 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 minutes more. Serve hot!

Dinner was an air fried Omaha Sole Almondine sitting atop fresh baby spinach and tomato drizzled with a bit of olive oil and corn on the cob.... OMGOOOOOOD!!!!!  

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

Teddy Bear Day
(This is basically what mine looked like. When I was born my Aunt Agnes gave it to me. I kept him with me forever, but have looked for him in recent years and have no idea what happened to him.)

Today is Teddy Bear Day. A Teddy Bear is a special friend to children all over the world. He's cuddly. He makes you feel secure in an otherwise insecure world. He's lovable. Your Teddy Bear is both a companion and a comforter. And, he's not afraid of the dark. He'll keep you safe.
Spend the day and night with your teddy bear . Cuddle up to him. Talk to him. And, do all of your favorite things together.
Parents and adults: No child should grow up without a teddy bear. If you know of any kid without one, use this day to buy a teddy bear for them.
As we become adults, some find it difficult to give up our teddy bears. We feel there is no reason to give him up. Some adults have their teddy bears around all their lives. Its perfectly normal....and okay.
Have a happy Teddy Bear Day!
So.................. at the LASD reunion in Laughlin last year I bought this guy... Deputy Teddy!
