Good 44º super cloudy/foggy morning.
The weather yesterday started out so gloomy... and stayed that way all day. We did get a few sprinkles of rain.
And the noisy geese back again!
Yesterday was the local Law Enforcement/Fire luncheon at the Golf Club in Grants Pass. I hadn't been for several years and finally went. The restaurant is now owned by Dustin, who owns The Vine Restaurant next to Brian's State Farm office. Had a great lunch and visit with our LASD group, Bill and Jeannie Patterson and Dale Yellin and former Jackson Co Fireman and Rogue River Chief, Mike Hannan. All the rest of the attendees were former LAPD and one guy who was a cop in Illinois. Pictures later....
Picture of the Day ... LOL Hazard, Kentucky!
Interesting ... Pike Place Fish Market ... if you haven't been there and are in the Seattle area, make sure you go visit this market! It's fun!!!
As part of a large farmers' market, the 'Pike Place Fish Market' is an open air fish market located in Seattle, Washington at the cross streets named Pike Place and Pike Street. Founded in 1930, this site is known for the tradition of fishmongers (someone who sells raw fish and seafood, either wholesale or retail), throwing fish that customers have purchased, before they are wrapped. The market is a popular tourist attraction, often billed as world-famous. Exact address for the headquarters is 86 Pike Place.
The 'Pike Place Fish Market' is best known for its staff who complete a ritual of hurling customers' fish orders across the display and shipping area. This standard routine and ritual is followed by staff after customers have placed an order. While wearing orange rubber overalls and boots, staff call out the customer's order, at which point the fishmonger will throw the customer's fish behind the counter for wrapping. Initially, the ritual of shouting and then repeating the customer's ordered fish began as a prank by one employee, but was enjoyed by customers, so it became a routine and tradition.

One-Pan Rotini With Tomato Cream Sauce
- In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until beef is no longer pink and onion is tender, breaking up beef into crumbles, 5-10 minutes; drain. Add garlic and seasonings; cook 1 minute longer. Add the stock and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Add pasta and peas; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, until pasta is tender, 10-12 minutes.
- Gradually stir in cream and cheese; heat through (do not allow to boil).
Test Kitchen tips
- Even if all the noodles aren't totally submerged in liquid when added to the pan, they will still cook through.
- For an extra boost of flavor, stir in cooked sausage and serve with additional cheese.
