Clouds ~ 10-17 ~ Delta Dawn ~ Ham & Egg Muffins ~ Salmon & Veggies ~ Pasta Day

Good 36º cloudy morning.

Yesterday stayed clear with a tad of smoke invading our air ....
We warmed to 81º.

"10-17" = pick up papers

"10-17A" = are you holding papers?

'1017' was also Brian's  USMC Boot Camp Platoon number.

I was making a list for shopping and put on it Dawn Dish Soap. Then, ugh, I started singing Delta Dawn in my head!

This went on forever! So, since yesterday was "National Liquor Day" I thought I'd have a glass of liquor to maybe get that song to go away. Then I thought, not a good idea, as I would probably be singing it out loud!! I had a cup of tea!

Here is an easy good dish that I have made many times.... Ham & Egg Muffins

5 eggs
large spoonful of mayonnaise
½ cup chopped cooked ham (or bacon, Chorizo, chicken, Spam, etc)
½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese
¼ cup sliced green onions

1. Preheat oven to 350º.
2. Coat 6 muffin cups with cooking spray.
3. In a bowl combine all ingredients. Mixing well.
4. Spoon into muffin cups.
5. Bake 20-25 minutes or until eggs are set. Serve immediately.

You can add: diced tomatoes, diced chiles, bell pepper, olives, garlic, onion, beans....... whatever floats your boat.

Historically this date....
1814 – London Beer Flood occurs in London, killing nine.

1931 – Al Capone convicted of income tax evasion.

1941 – German troops execute the male population of the villages Kerdyllia in Serres,Greece.

Too many sick sick leaders in this world who feel it is/was their right to "adjust" populations. Don't get me started. I am so glad Saddam is off the face of the earth and waiting tables in Hell!

1966 – A fire at a building in New YorkNew York kills 12 firefighters, the New York City Fire Department's deadliest day until the September 11, 2001 attacks.

1989 – 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake (7.1 on the Richter scale) hits the San Francisco Bay Area and causes 57 deaths directly (and 6 indirectly).

While traveling to my sister Marion's, in Lake Tahoe, my son Brian and I are listening to the World Series ... the earthquake struck, unbeknownst to us, and the radio went off. We thought it was because of a bad reception area. Arrived at my sis's and she was jumping up and down on the deck shouting, "The Bay Bridge has fallen down, the Bay Bridge has fallen down!" Gosh, we both wondered what in the world ... had she been smokin' her socks????? Lordy. So, after that, we sat spellbound in front of the TV for hours watching all the mess in San Francisco unfold. My nephew Andy at Candlestick Park on the upper deck said the whole deck was swinging back and forth. Fortunately it didn't fall. Wow.
David, Jim, Marion, Bill, and Andy.... 1988

And births this date include...
1915 – Arthur Miller, American playwright (d. 2005)

Today is National Pasta Day. Choose your favorite pasta shape, there's over 600 of them, add your favorite sauce, and chow down! For many of us, the first sauce that comes to mind is red tomato spaghetti sauce. There's plenty other sauces and toppings to choose from, including Alfredo sauce, clam sauce, and cheese sauce, to name a few. To celebrate this special day, it doesn't matter what sauce you use. All that is important, is that you use pasta noodles. ... sorry, no spaghetti squash today. 
When we think of pasta, Italy and Italian cuisine comes to mind. Pasta has a long, long history, and it did not originate in Italy. Pasta noodles are made from dough consisting of water, flour, and sometimes other spices and ingredients. Ancient cultures were making and cooking pasta noodles long before they were introduced to Italy and other parts of Europe. Marco Polo has been erroneously credited with bringing spaghetti and pastas to Europe. Historical records show Europeans cooking pasta well before Marco Polo began his travels. Historical records  also show that Arab cultures were selling dried spaghetti-like noodles in open markets in the early 1200's. The Chinese were the first to make pasta, cooking pasta noodles as far back as 5,000 B.C.
While ancient cultures were making and eating spaghetti and other pastas well before it came to Europe, it's the Italians who popularized it in cuisines of Europe and America. It was introduced into the United States through the travels of Thomas Jefferson, who brought it back from Naples, Italy in 1789. Italian immigrants also brought it over with them to the U.S., where its popularity quickly spread. 
Pasta is the Italian word for dough.

Did you Know? Americans consume about 20 pounds of pasta per person per year.
