Picture of the Day ~ Julie & Mark Moran ~ Deleting AOL Mail ~ Texas Casserole ~ Hawk & Bruiser ~ Golf Pants ~ Peppermint Patty

Good 29º everything is frozen again morning. 

Picture of the Day...

Yesterday my hairdresser Leah posted about her mom and dad:
They were on their way to the 7 Feathers Casino just north of here Friday night when her mom went into anaphylactic shock.
Julie stopped breathing!  Mark pulled over and got her airway open and revived her. Trouble was there was no cell phone service. So, get this.... he had to keep her breathing and drive until he could call 911! The ambulance came and took her to the hospital in Roseburg where they got her stabilized. 
Mark is a retired Jackson Co Fireman and paramedic. A hero for sure!

What is weird is Friday night, about 7:30 it just popped into my head about Julie and when Jerry would go to Ace, where she is manager, he would always call her Julie, but pronounced like Julio.... Who-lee. Hmmmmm..... I think Jerry was telling me something! He must have been watching over Julie and Mark! Mark told me they were at the hospital by then.

They are back home and Julie is doing good! 

If you have AOL, the new Gold doesn't have a "permanently delete" button for recently deleted items in that folder, to delete all at once. Instead of going down one by one, hold down the Ctrl button on the left bottom on the keyboard, then hit the A button. All items will be highlighted, then hit the "permanently delete" button. You can do the same with the items in the "old" folder and the "sent" folder. 

Also, there isn't a "resize" button for photos you add to an email. Click on the photo and it will highlight. In the corners of the photo are little circles, just take your pointer, place on the circle, and then pull the photo in towards the center of it to what size you want to have.

They say everything is bigger in Texas, which must be why this casserole is so big on taste! Texas Broccoli Rice Casserole is creamy, cheesy, and oh so easy. It's perfect alongside anything.

3/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 stick butter
1 12oz pkg frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained or 4 cups fresh broccoli that has been steamed tender
1 10oz can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 cups cooked rice
1. Preheat oven to 350º and coat a 1½ quart baking dish with cooking spray.
2. In large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté celery and onion 3-5 minutes, until tender. Transfer to large bowl.
3. Mix in remaining ingredients and place in baking dish.
4. Bake 40-45 minutes until heated and bubbly.

Yesterday morning this young hawk landed on the fence. Bruiser saw him and lay in wait for a chance to get him. No such luck, Bruise!! Thankfully.

Later I turned on the TV and the Pebble Beach Golf Tournament was on. This guy was up and OMGOSH, look at those pants he's wearing! (Similar to the ones I got for Brian!) The announcer said his pants look like he had a pocketful of Skittles and they melted!
BTW, that is actor Bill Murray (remember Caddyshack?)

I bought these pickled mushrooms at Costco..
They are made with extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and mushrooms. Made in France. 
OMGOODNESS, they are GOOD!!!! 

Dinner was  Schwans Pork Egg Rolls with Sweet Chili Sauce and some of those mushrooms and sweet potatoe....

Then chair, wine, and the Olympics!!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.

The oldest commercially-made mint patty or cake was made by the Quiggin’s family on the Isle of Man (an island located in the middle of the northern Irish Sea). They had been making the cakes since 1840, but in 1880, four of the sons formed the Kendal Mint Cake Company.
In the United States, as early as 1900, peppermint patties were made by regional confectioneries. Companies such as Idaho Candy Company, Trudeau Candie’s and Pearson’s (which purchased Trudeau in 1951, both were Minnesota companies).  Possibly the most known, though not the oldest, York Peppermint Patties were made by the York Cone Company of Pennsylvania.
York Peppermint Pattie’s were first made in 1940 and distributed regionally much like other candy makers of the era.  York dominated the market because of its firmness and crispness while the others were soft. A former York employee remembered that the final (sample) test of the patty before it left the factory was called a “snap test.”  If the candy did not break clean in the middle, it did not make it onto candy store shelves.
In 1975 the company was acquired by Peter Paul Cadbury.  The factory was moved to Reading, Pennsylvania, to much distress to the workers and residents of York.  The popular treat was then distributed across the country.
