Good 54º clear sunny morning. Yesterday we topped at 93º.
I am frustrated as all get out. I turned on the sprinkler in the front yard last evening. In a bit I looked out and it wasn't on! About 8pm for some unknown reason my water went off. No water at all. I checked the panel where the electricity is that pumps the water from the well and nothing works. I left a message for my plumber. Sigh.... No shower, no dish washing, no watering....... Good thing I have a couple bottles of water so I can drink it, make coffee, and brush my teeth!
Interesting about Lenticular Clouds....

Parmesan and Herb Crusted Salmon
For the salmon:
- 1 1/2 pounds salmon (or trout, tilapia, cod, etc)
- 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs (gluten-free for gluten-free)
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/2 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
- 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
- 2 tablespoons dill, chopped
- zest of 1 lemon
- salt and pepper to taste
For the lemon sauce:
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 shallot, finely diced
- 1 gloves garlic, chopped
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- salt and pepper to taste
Spread the dijon mustard over the fish, press on the mixture of the breadcrumbs, butter, parmesan, parsley, dill, zest, salt and pepper, place on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated 400º oven until the fish is just cooked and the breadcrumbs are lightly golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, add the shallots and cook for a minute, add the garlic cook for a minute, add the heavy cream, mix in the mustard, lemon juice salt and pepper, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes.
Option: Use a honey dijon sauce instead of just dijon to change things up a bit.
Option: Use regular breadcrumbs instead of panko.
Historically this date....
1863 – American Civil War: the Battle of Gettysburg begins.
After having lived in Los Angeles, 32, Ca for all my life, now it was Los Angeles 90032. For those of you who remember, this was strange!
1981 – The Wonderland Murders occurred in the early morning hours, allegedly masterminded by businessman and drug dealer Eddie Nash.
.... that was interesting!
... I wish it was banned here in all public outdoor spaces too!
And births this date include....
1906 – Estée Lauder, American entrepreneur (d. 2004)
1961 – Diana, Princess of Wales, first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales and mother of the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry (d. 1997)
I put my sunset 9pm picture on my blog on June 28th and on FB and said the time it was taken. A pal of mine, Carol, asked why we have daylight still at 9pm. Well, here we are about 100 miles farther west than Los Angeles is. Here's a quick map of that, even Reno is farther west than San Diego. Seems odd, huh?
Just to be clear in the use of the word... farther.....
She moved further down the train.
She moved farther down the train.
Both words share the same roots: in the sentences given above, where the sense is ‘at, to, or by a greater distance’, there is no difference in meaning, and both are equally correct. Further is a much more common word
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.
