Dude ~ Slow Cooker Tamale Pie ~ Our House 1997 ~ NFL Protest Song ~ Fried Pie Day


Good 37º foggy morning. We topped at 43º yesterday. Stayed dark and gloomy all day.


I had to take Dude in for his, hopefully last, 8 week post-op checkup. Dr. Russ Fugazzi https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-aeZ4_w5QbmQ/Wc57dZQ3eeI/AAAAAAABQyI/y8aohwVH8X41YXDgmt-bsjxxFEOuLKV0gCEwYBhgL/s1600/DrMA30121752-0070.jpg
He said he took x-rays and everything looks great. He's recovering fine. Yeah!


Then since the new Costco is around the corner from the vet's office I drove over there to take a look. Big! A gal in the vet's office said it's so much bigger than the original one and nicer to shop in. Hobby Lobby will go into the old Costco building.


Do you like Tamale Pie? I LOVE it. Here is a Mr. Food slow cooker version. Easy! Good!

2 pounds ground beef, cooked and drained
2 28oz cans diced tomatoes, drained
2 cups frozen whole kernel corn
1 2¼ oz can sliced black olives, drained
1 med onion, diced
1 1.25 oz taco seasoning package mix
1 16oz package cornbread mix
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1. In a large bowl combine the cooked beef, tomatoes, corn, olives, onion, and taco seasoning. Mix well and pour into 6 qt slow cooker.
2. Prepare cornbread mix according to package directions and spoon it over the beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.
3. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 6 hours.


One this date in 1997 Jerry and I bought this house. We moved from Temple City in 1998... Jerry almost immediately bought this 1940 John Deere tractor...

He was a happy camper having all this property and being able to be a 'farmer'!!

This funny little house was built in 1935. A shack!
 The foundation is so odd, big rocks with trees sitting atop the rocks and the house on top of the trees. Sort of like this:

No building codes back then. At least it's still standing and a lot of improvements have been made.

The people we bought it from (after a number of modifications) said when they first came to see the house the owners walked out the front door followed by a bunch of chickens!

Here's a song, shared by former Wilsonite and LASD ret Carlos Bowers, by Neal McCoy as a protest to the NFL idiots who take a knee..... (keep the Kleenex close!)
Later for dinner I had some leftover fried rice (Schwans)

 and I cut up some of the leftover turkey breast and heated it. Then a piece of cheesecake (Schwans also!) for dessert. YUMMMMMM!
