Good 35º some ice on the barn roof morning and fog.
Yesterday we warmed to 63º. The clouds were fluffy and there was blue sky and sun peeking through. Then the sky cleared out and it warmed to 70º!
Yesterday I met up with Jean, my DIL Jen's mom, at Brian's office. She had done my taxes so we went over them. Then we went next door to The Vine
and I bought her lunch. Jean and I both had the portabello sandwich, cooked portabello mushroom on a burger bun with sauteéd onions and lots of cheese! Jean had the regular fries and I had the sweet potato fries with marshmallow dipping sauce. OMGOSH! That was an AWESOME meal!!
Picture of the Day.... perfectly timed!
Interesting about the Redwoods....
The tallest trees in the world are coast redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens). They are evergreen trees, growing up to 300 feet (91 meters)! Coast redwoods, often called California redwoods, can be found in coastal California and coastal Oregon. These trees need humidity, so most of them grow the mountains where moisture level is always sufficient. The tree named Hyperion, 379.7 feet tall, is the tallest of the coastal redwoods and all living trees ever discovered. It was found in 2006.
From Mr. Food.....
Old-fashioned tuna casseroles might take some extra time that we just don't have. That's why we came up with a stove-top way that's quick, easy, and full of flavor! Plus, once this all comes together, we top it off with some potato chips to add a fun texture! Everyone is going to be asking for seconds of our Stove-top Tuna Casserole!
- 1 pound rigatoni pasta
- 2 (10.75-ounce) cans condensed cheddar cheese soup
- 2 (12-ounce) cans tuna, drained and flaked
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 cups crushed potato chips
Special birthdays today... Adele (Easton) Graves, my high school pal is celebrating her birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEL! xo
^with her husband Tom
And.... Gary Adkison (aka Gary My Love!) neighbor and friend is celebrating his birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GML!
^with his wife Katie
The reason he is also GML is because when Jerry introduced me to Gary, he said, "This is Gary, my love (referring to me!)." He always called me "my love" or "darling" or something loving.
