Gloom ~ Dude ~ Schwans ~ Broccoli Cheese Casserole ~ Bruiser ~ Sunset

Good 38º super foggy (again!) morning.

 Stayed in the low 40ºs all day and no sun here.

Yesterday was exciting... bill paying day. Joy. Then a quick trip into town to pick up a prescription. Dude was happy to go for a ride!

I was perusing the Schwans site for what I was going to order next. That key lime pie is sooooooooooooo good, and their cheesecake, and so was the pumpkin cream pie (seasonal) awesome, but they do have a chocolate cream pie. That is next on my shopping list! 

This recipe was given to me by Suzanne Santisteven back in 2005.

2 cans cream of celery soup
2 cups white or yellow Cheddar cheese, grated
4 eggs, beaten

1. In sauce pan, add soup, eggs, cheese, milk, onion and heat until cheese is melted.
2. Arrange broccoli in 9x11 baking dish.
3. Pour cheese mixture evenly over broccoli.
4. Top with crushed crackers and the pats of butter.
5. Bake 350º for 40 minutes.

I had been sitting at my desk, eating breakfast, and when I was done Bruiser showed up and finished what I didn't eat!

The sunset last night was not spectacular.... but the sun was visible! Of course we were unable to see the full moon. What else is new.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

National Chocolate Covered Cherry Day

It's National Chocolate Covered Cherry Day! This sweet holiday celebrates the well-known confectionary classic, chocolate covered cherries. Chocolate covered cherries are a delicious candy that are enjoyed year-round, but are especially popular during the Holiday months. 
Chocolate covered cherries can be made in a variety of ways. A popular variety is a cherry cordial, which is often filled with a cherry liqueur filling. Other varieties include the simple and traditional cherry dipped in chocolate. Whatever variety you fancy, be sure to pick up some chocolate covered cherries from your local grocery store!
