Good 56º clear sunny morning.
Yesterday the clouds, sparse, stayed around until later afternoon.
We topped at 89º.
Happy Throw Back Thursday... My first dog, Scuffy Ann of Stockbridge. She was a sweetie. Stockbridge was the name of our street.
Picture of the Day
The concept of modern policing has its roots in pre-Victorian England, when the British home minister, Sir Robert Peel, oversaw the creation of London’s first organized police force. Peel’s patrolmen wore black jackets and tall wool hats with badges. They went out armed only with a short club and a whistle for summoning backup. Robert Peel’s system was a success, and by the mid-19th century large American cities had created similar police forces. In London, the policemen were so identified with the politician who created them that they were referred to as “Bobbies,” after the popular nickname for Robert.
I posted this recipe about 5 years ago...
Dinner started with, "Oh look, there is shrimp in the freezer!"
Ok, so then I thawed the shrimp and some scallops. Then in boiling water, after peeling the shrimp, I added Old Bay Garlic & Herb and some smoky paprika and dried onions. Boiled for 4 minutes, drained.
I sauteed the scallops in hot hot oil, set aside and made the Udon Noodles (I found these in the area where packaged lettuce and spinach are kept refrigerated), according to pkg instructions. I then added in the shrimp and scallops and some diced tomato and peas. If you don't like peas (Jeannie!) you could use broccoli or celery or bell peppers. This was GREAT!
Oh thank Heaven for 7-11! Special birthday today, my daughter-in-love Jennifer Pendleton is celebrating. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEN!
