Good 52º cloud/haze covered morning.
The smoke free day on Friday was heaven, but yesterday morning the smoke started covering my mountain again. Darn!
We had some breeze and the smoke left for a bit and clouds came in.
Then by 3pm you couldn't see my mountain! Gag. This was the worst ever!!! Apparently it is from the setting of backfires. We topped at 90º.
Then by 8pm the smoke backed off and some big clouds came in......
Special day today.... 5 years ago today Dude came to live here. I am blessed UPS Dave asked me if I would like to have him, as he was moving and couldn't take a dog to live there.
Dude has always been a sweetheart. He and Maggie got along super.
Sadly Maggie passed away 18 days later. She was 15. Such a sweet girl.... a Scottish McNab. Since she was Scottish, and my Mom was Scottish, and Maggie and my Mom both had red hair, I named her after my Mom... her name was Margaret.
Picture of the Day
Speedee was the first McDonald's mascot before Ronald McDonald was created. McDonald's developed the Speedee character in 1948 as the mascot for the company's "Speedee Service System". Speedee was a character with a chef's hat on top of a hamburger shaped head. He was also the first company logo before the use of the Golden Arches design. Speedee was eventually replaced with Ronald McDonald by 1967. Once commonplace, only two McDonald's locations still have a Speedee sign outside the restaurant.
Overnight Ham & Egg Casserole
This is so easy to assemble... this savory egg casserole. Put it together the night before and it's ready to cook in the morning.
- In a greased 8-in. square baking dish, layer the hash browns, ham, chilies and cheeses. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and pepper; pour over the casserole. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand for 5-10 minutes. Serve with salsa if desired.
