Geese/Turkeys ~ Dakota & Luna ~ Picture of the Day ~ Tabasco Hot Sauce ~ Sheet Pan Toad-In-The-Hole ~ Mary & Gil Zavala ~ National Hairstylist Appreciation Day


Good 34º clear sunny morning. 
Yesterday we topped at 78º. 
 
 
In the morning yesterday the geese and turkeys were out and about.... honking and gobbling! NOISY!
 
 
 
Yesterday Dakota got here and mowed a lot of area and then did a lot of weed-eating. He did a great job and I recommend to anyone in this area!  
 

 
 
He brought his 3 month old pup Luna, a Heeler. She kept and eye on her dad.....
 
and later came in the house and, like Dash, napped in my lap!
 
 
 
 
 
Picture of the Day... OMGOSH! What a strange thing to do to a car!
 
 
 

 
Interesting about Tabasco.....
 
Tabasco sauce is a brand of hot sauce made exclusively from tabasco peppers (Capsicum frutescens var. tabasco), vinegar, and salt. It is produced by McIlhenny Company of Avery Island, Louisiana.
Although the name comes from the Mexican state of Tabasco, the sauce is an American product produced by McIlhenny Company.
(Re the state in Mexico: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabasco)
Tabasco sauce was first produced in 1868 by Edmund McIlhenny, a Maryland-born former banker who moved to Louisiana around 1840. McIlhenny initially used discarded cologne bottles to distribute his sauce to family and friends. In 1868 when he started to sell to the public he ordered thousands of new cologne bottles from a New Orleans glass supplier. On his death in 1890, McIlhenny was succeeded by his eldest son, John Avery McIlhenny, who expanded and modernized the business, but resigned after only a few years in order to join Theodore Roosevelt's 1st US Volunteer Cavalry Regiment, the Rough Riders.

Jerry LOVED Tabasco Sauce. He could just drink it right out of the bottle!!!

If you've never heard of toad-in-the-hole, well, let us enlighten you! It's a recipe that is perfect for breakfast, dinner, or even brinner -- that's breakfast for dinner! Our Sheet Pan Toad-in-the-Hole comes together with all the flavors you love, without any of the mess of a traditional big breakfast. Once you try it, you're gonna wonder how you lived without it!

 

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 6 (1/2-inch-thick) slices country-style bread
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt for sprinkling
  • Black pepper for sprinkling
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced (optional)

 

  1. Preheat oven to 400º. Place bacon in single layer on baking sheet. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate, let cool slightly, then coarsely crumble.
  2. Meanwhile, coat another baking sheet with cooking spray. 
  3. Using a 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter or the rim of a drinking glass, make a hole in the center of each bread slice. Butter one side of each slice and place on baking sheet, buttered side down. Lightly butter top side.
  4. Gently crack an egg into each bread hole. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.
  5. Cook 12 to 15 minutes or until eggs are cooked to your desired doneness. Sprinkle with bacon and scallion, if desired, and serve immediately.
