Fog/Sun ~ Picture of the Day ~ Popeyes Restaurants ~ 5 Ingredient Vegetable Frittata ~ National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day


Good 46º cloudy/foggy morning.
Yesterday the fog lifted and we had some interesting clouds... and contrails....




We topped at 61º. In the night we got some rain. Everything is wet, but it was not enough to measure. 


Picture of the Day.... LOL. Yes, I have a shed monster dog too!! Vacuum vacuum vacuum!!!




Interesting about Popeyes Restaurants....


Popeyes is a chain of fried chicken fast-food restaurants founded in New Orleans in 1972. Everyone assumes that Popeyes is named after the spinach-eating comic strip character, but the name was actually inspired by a fictional '70s detective. Popeyes founder Al Copeland named his fast-food chain after Popeye Doyle, Gene Hackman's character in the film “The French Connection”. The film had been popular at the time that Copeland launched his first Popeyes restaurant. Copeland was said to be a big fan of the film’s leading character.





5 Ingredient Vegetable Frittata



  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped (about 1/2 cup chopped)
  • 1/2 green bell pepper (about 1/2 cup chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, finely chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried chives)
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Preheat oven to 400°. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a bowl whisk the eggs and salt, then add in the chopped vegetables and chives and 1/4 cup of the cheddar cheese and whisk to combine. Pour into prepared skillet and sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cheddar cheese on top.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes, then slice and serve.

This frittata reheats really well, microwave a slice for 30 seconds to 1 minute on high

Unique food holidays, such as National Carbonated Beverage With Caffeine Day, give us opportunities to break out of our everyday norm. On November 19th, explore the variety of carbonated beverages with caffeine.  
Some people cannot have caffeine due to medical reasons. However, others choose to avoid caffeine for their own reasons. Then millions of people who like their caffeine very much.  The same is true with the carbonation in beverages. Today’s celebration combines the two of them together.
In 1767, Englishman Joseph Priestly suspended a bowl of distilled water above a beer vat at a local brewery in Leeds, England. His experiment led to the discovery of a method of infusing water with carbon dioxide to make carbonated water. Priestly’s invention of carbonated water is the major and defining component of most soft drinks.
Caffeine acts as a central nervous system stimulant, temporarily warding off drowsiness and restoring alertness. Ninety percent of adults in North America consume caffeine daily.  Some people notice sleep disruption after drinking beverages containing caffeine. Though, others see no disturbance at all.
Other terms for carbonated beverages include sparkling, bubbly or effervescent. Almost any beverage can be carbonated, though not every beverage should be carbonated. Soda are the most common caffeinated carbonated drinks, but these days some makers can even add some fizz to cold-brewed coffee. Certain sparkling waters infuse flavors and add caffeine for that extra boost.
