Weather ~ Lulu's Family Brunch ~ Picture of the Day ~ Highest Point in Florida ~ Pepperoni Garbage Bread ~ Dash Pendleton ~ Columbus Day

Good 35º cloudy foggy morning. 
Clouds came and went yesterday and we topped at 76º.

Yesterday for "brunch", I met up with Brian, Jen, Tucker, Sami, Jean, and Kristen at Lulu's in Grants Pass. We were celebrating Jean's birthday, a little late as her special day was 11 days ago.

Yesterday evening Kristen flew back to L.A. So great having her her for a visit, even though short. Come back again Tootie!!!! xoxoxoxoxo

Picture of the Day.... clarity!

Interesting.... flattest state

While many people might think that Kansas is the flattest state in the country, they would be wrong. The flattest state is Florida, and Kansas isn’t even among the top five flattest states in the country. By any measure, Florida takes the prize for the flattest state in the nation because the highest point in the state is only 345 feet above sea level. Illinois comes in second, followed by North Dakota, Louisiana, Minnesota, and Delaware. Kansas, despite its reputation for hill-less plains, was merely the seventh-flattest.

From Mr. Food
Pepperoni Garbage Bread...

Don't let the name fool you. Our Pepperoni Garbage Bread is named for the fact that you can throw whatever you want inside. Use last night's leftovers or anything you have in the fridge and enjoy!


  • 1 (13.8-ounce) package refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup pepperoni slices (about 32 slices)
  • 1 (12-ounce) jar roasted red peppers, drained and lightly patted dry, then cut into thin strips
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • Garlic powder for sprinkling
  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Unroll pizza dough onto baking sheet. Sprinkle cheese evenly over dough. Layer with pepperoni, red peppers, and spinach. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Roll dough up jelly roll-style and fold ends under to close. Lightly spray with cooking spray.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden. Let cool 5 minutes, then slice and serve.


  • Feel free to add any leftover veggies, cheese, or cooked chicken or meat you may have on hand! This is perfect for those clear-out-the-fridge days.
  • Serve with warm pizza sauce and a side salad. We'd like to suggest our crunchy, delicious Caesar salad!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Columbus Day Monday. Ciao.
xo Sue Mom Bobo

Columbus Day is a holiday celebrating the anniversary of Christopher Columbus' arrival in the Americas on October 12, 1492. The event is celebrated in many countries including the United States, Argentina, Venezuela, Colombia, Chile, Mexico and Spain.

Is Columbus Day a federal holiday?

Yes, it became a federal holiday in the United States in 1937 due to the decision of Congress and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Nowadays it is generally observed by the U.S. Postal Service, federal agencies, banks, most state government offices, most school districts and many businesses. Most states celebrate it as an official state holiday and close schools and other state services.

When is Columbus Day celebrated?

Columbus Day is celebrated on the second Monday in October, but up until 1970 it was celebrated on October 12 to commemorate Columbus' arrival in the Americas which occurred on October 12, 1492. Since 1971 due to The Uniform Monday Holiday Act, the holiday's date has been fixed to the second Monday in October.
