Good 42º raining morning.
We were told to expect rain yesterday.... it was beautiful and almost up to the 70ºs, but then early afternoon the darker clouds moved in...
Then about 4pm the rain started. Still at it....
My daughter sent me a text with a video of the rain pouring in So. Cal. Do you know what most Californian's reaction is to rain? This is it....
Happy Throw Back Thursday... 2008 Kristen, Jack, and Alex making gingerbread houses for Christmas...
What to feed and not to feed a dog....
What You'll Need:
- 2 cups cooked chicken, cut into cubes
- 1 (9-ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables, thawed and drained
- 8 ounces (2 cups) uncooked elbow macaroni
- 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1 (10 -ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon curry powder (see Options)
- 1 cup corn flake crumbs (for topping) or Panko
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted (for topping)
- In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except topping ingredients; mix well. Place in an 8-inch square baking dish and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Refrigerate 6 to 8 hours, or overnight.
- Before serving, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a small bowl, combine corn flake crumbs and butter; mix well. Stir chicken mixture then sprinkle crumb topping evenly over top.
- Bake 45 to 50 minutes, until golden.
- If you don't care for the flavor of curry, try an equal amount of dried basil for an Italian treat, or dried dill for that "right from the garden" taste.
Special birthday today, my neighbor Cindy Mize. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CINDY!
Cindy and Frank are AWESOME neighbors!!! ♥
Historically this date.........
1622 – Jamestown massacre: Algonquian Indians kill 347 English settlers aroundJamestown, Virginia, a third of the colony's population.
.... Good grief, sounds like they should have had a treaty~
1765 – The British Parliament passes the Stamp Act that introduces a tax to be levied directly on its American colonies.
... THIS MEANS WAR!
1984 – Teachers at the McMartin preschool in Manhattan Beach, California are charged with satanic ritual abuse of the children in the school. The charges are later dropped as completely unfounded.
....The trial lasted seven years and cost $15 million, the longest and most expensive criminal case in the history of the United States legal system, and ultimately resulted in no convictions. Can you believe it... Chuck Norris, the actor, was identified by one child as being one of the abusers!
1997 – Tara Lipinski, age 14 years and 10 months, becomes the youngest champion women's World Figure Skating Champion.
And births this date include....
1908 – Louis L'Amour, American author (d. 1988)
Jerry's favorite author!
1912 – Karl Malden, American actor (d. 2009)
1920 – James Brown, American actor (d. 1992)
Awww.... I loved Rin Tin Tin and even have an autographed picture from Mr. Brown!
.... and look at this, the little boy in Rin Tin Tin was Lee Aaker who played Rusty... OMG
He went from 'so cute' to 'so weird'!
1931 – William Shatner, Canadian actor
1933 – May Britt, Swedish actress
She met Sammy Davis, Jr. in 1959. They began dating, and, after a brief engagement, were married on November 13, 1960. Their wedding caused controversy. A rumor or myth, John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy told Frank Sinatra to tell Davis not to marry May until after the 1960 Presidential Election. At that time interracial marriage was forbidden by law in 31 U.S. states, and only in 1967 were those laws (by then down to 17 states) ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.
She must have 'retired' because there are no recent photos of her anywhere!
1976 – Reese Witherspoon, American actress
