Good 61º cloudy morning......
Yesterday with a predicted 30% chance of rain and the radar looking like the rain was certainly approaching....
at 12:15 the rain started! Amazing. 66º and pouring! The rain lasted until just after 6pm and we got just over 1/2".
I kinda knew it was really going to rain since I watered Tuesday, my neighbor watered his pastures, and Brian got his truck washed!!!
Today is Throw Back Thursday .... 2008 my trip to Greece.. a couple of Athens cops... this one posing!
Picture of the Day .... :o)
A palindrome is a word or sentence that reads the same forward as it does backward. Some examples of palindromic words are kayak, civic, radar, level, rotor, racecar, redder, madam, and refer. Some names are palindromes, such as the given names Hannah, Ada, Anna, Bob, and Otto. Palindromes can also consist of a sentence or phrase, e.g., "Mr. Owl ate my metal worm", "Do geese see God?", and "Was it a car or a cat I saw?" According to The Oxford English Dictionary the word is based on Greek root words meaning “back” and “running.”
How about a great tasting easy side dish for your hamburger dinner.... or anything, for that matter....
3 medium Idaho or russet potatoes, peeled
2 T + 1 t. Old El Paso Taco Seasoning mix from 1oz pkg
Heat oven to 450º. Spray 15x10x1 inch pan with cooking spray.
Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Cut each half into 4 wedges(about 1 1/2 inches on the wide side); place cut side down in pan. Spray potatoes with cooking spray; turn potatoes and spray other side. Sprinkle with the Taco seasoning mix, toss until potatoes are evenly coated. Arrange potatoes in single layer in pan.
Bake uncovered 20-25 minutes, or until bottoms are crispy. Turn potatoes and bake 5 minutes longer or until bottoms are crispy.
Substitute sweet potatoes for the Idaho. Sweet potato fries will have a softer texture.
