Clouds ~ Fire Extinguisher ~ In My Day ~ World's Deepest Lake ~ Crispy Baked Asparagus Fries ~ Cathy's Birds ~ Bruiser ~ Car Wash ~ Veggie Burger Day

Good 42º clear sunny morning. 
Yesterday stayed breezy and cool, and by 1pm we were only at 73º. Then by late afternoon we were in the high 70ºs. 
The clouds were beautiful too.......

I saw a demo on FB of an aerosol fire extinguisher. It was expensive, so I checked out Amazon for one. I read all the comments and bought two for $24.
Here is the web page and the info. Scroll to the bottom of the page. I will keep one in the kitchen and one in my car.

This is true..... shared by pal Carol Nasca (Wisonite)
In my day:
 "grass" was mowed, 
 "coke" was a cold drink, 
 "pot" was something your mother cooked in and 
 "rock music" was your grandmother's lullaby.
 "Aids" were helpers in the Principal's office, 
 "chip" meant a piece of wood, 
 "hardware" was found in a hardware store and 
 "software" wasn't even a word.

Picture of the Day

Baikal is the world's deepest lake. Also known as the "blue eye of Siberia", Lake Baikal is located in Southern Siberia, between Irkutsk Oblast to the northwest and the Buryat Republic to the southeast. Famous for being the deepest lake in the world with a maximum depth of 5,369 feet, it holds a volume of water larger than that of all the great lakes combined. It is considered among the world's clearest lakes and is considered the world's oldest lake.. Geologists estimate that Lake Baikal formed somewhere 20-25 million years ago, during the Mesozoic.


Crispy Baked Asparagus Fries

  • 1 1/2 pounds asparagus, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Dredge the asparagus in the flour, dip in the egg and then into a mixture of the panko, parmesan, salt and pepper.
  2. Place the asparagus in a single layer on a wire rack on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated 425º oven until golden brown, about 7-13 minutes
Here's another picture from Cathy's birds. She says they are of the song bird family. Anyway, babies eyes open and hungry!

When it comes to combining flavor and plant power, National Veggie Burger Day on June 5 proclaims it can be done!
Packed with flavor, protein and nutrients, veggie burgers show up at backyard barbecues, tailgate parties and on the menus of high-class restaurants.  Grill them, fry them or bake them. Layer all your favorite toppings like onion, tomato, lettuce, cheese, ketchup and mustard between crusty roll or bun and take a big juicy bite.  That’s one way to celebrate National Veggie Burger Day.
Give a veggie burger a taste. Have a veggie burger cook-off.  Invite your friends and family to grill up and stack up their favorite burger combos and share! 
Amy’s Kitchen founded National Veggie Burger Day to encourage everyone to eat a veggie burger and celebrate the positive impact plant-based veggie burgers have on us and the planet. The Registrar at National Day Calendar declared the day to be observed annually in 2017.
