Fog ~ Mushrooms ~ Greek Egg Salad ~ ZIP Codes ~ Door Knobs ~ Patriots


Good 34ยบ super foggy morning.

The fog yesterday was rough. Glad I didn't have to drive anywhere.


 Finally it did lift and we had sun for the rest of the day. Nice!


I was outside and saw these mushrooms growing in the wood chips on the side of the house.. I think they are Chanterelles.... but not positive. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chanterelle





Luckily, having been to Greece and enjoying the food there.... this is good....

Greek Egg Salad


6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped

2 T mayonnaise
1/4 cup Kalamata olives
2 T chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped cucumber
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
salt and pepper to taste
3 pita breads, cut in half
1. In bowl combine all ingredients except pita bread. Mix well.
2. Evenly spoon mixture into pita bread and enjoy!


 
************************************

ZIP Codes are a system of postal coded used by the United State Postal Service since 1963. The term ZIP is an acronym for Zone Improvement Plan and was chosen to suggest that the mail travels more efficiently and therefore more quickly (zipping along) when senders use the code in the postal address.
The basic format consists of five digits. An extended ZIP+4 code introduced in 1983, includes the five digits of the ZIP Code, a hyphen, and the four additional digits that determine a more specific location within the given Zip Code.
Until 1963 our address was Los Angeles 32, CA. Then it became Los Angeles, CA 90032

I was watching Blue Bloods and the detectives entered this house and it had crystal door knobs on the inside doors. Our house in El Sereno also had vintage crystal knobs....

These things are selling now for $43 a pair! I still have these.


Reruns for dinner, chair, wine, and TV. Exciting Saturday night!!! Actually it was, as my Patriots beat the Titans 35-14!!! 



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