Good 36º dark foggy morning.
Again, yesterday's fog hung around all day and we topped at 40º.

Interesting, another invention by a woman....
Like many women in the 1950s, Bette Nesmith Graham made a living as a secretary. The problem was that she wasn’t a good typist, and kept making mistakes. So she began experimenting with ways to cover up errors. She mixed ingredients such as white tempera water-based paint in her kitchen blender and painted over her mistakes with a thin paintbrush. She began marketing her typewriter correction fluid as "Mistake Out". The name was later changed to Liquid Paper. In 1979, she sold Liquid Paper to the Gillette Corporation for $47.5 million!
Her son, Michael Nesmith, would also find fame as a member of the rock band The Monkees.

It's after Thanksgiving and your fridge is bursting with turkey leftovers. That's perfect, because our recipe for Tempting Turkey Tetrazzini calls for just that: leftover turkey! This easy casserole recipe is a simple way to use up leftovers and surprise people around the dinner table with something delicious. Just like Thanksgiving dinner, everyone will want "just one more bite" after their plates are clean.
- 12 ounces uncooked spaghetti
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 2 cups milk
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/4 cup dry white wine or water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 3 cups coarsely chopped cooked turkey breast (about 1 pound) (see Tip)
- 1/4 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
****Don't think that you have to roast a whole turkey to get the cooked turkey to make this. Simply buy a 1-pound chunk in the deli and cut it up yourself.

His life was crazy! Amazing he's still alive after all he's gone through, even being kicked out of the house by his dad at age 15. Quite a strange life!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.
