Greasy is Good Imelda. It makes it easier to swallow the food, and it does not stay in the belly to easy....so it slides through fast, and that is good because it does not make one gain weight!

I am wishing now for some greasy! In particular, we take bread dough, and we fry it.
We put sugar on some, and dip in honey, or powdered sugar.
I like them plain. Also I like to make a pocket in the dough, and add anchiovi's or other kind of fish. Ooooohhhh..SOooooo Gooood!

We just buy the frozen bread doughs "Bigford" I think Tina Buys. We thaw one, and pull pieces of dough and stretch it to be round and flat, and then Tina or I fry it in hot 350ºF oil. Deep Oil. One bread makes about (if I am correct) about 12 to 15 fried dough's!

Egg rolls! Yummy made with just about anything in them. And, well, just about anything fried...

egg roll wrappers wrapped around "stuff" ~ makes everything crunchy and then....then a dipping sauce! YUM!

and Jimmy - balls of the bread dough drizzled with a powdered sugar/honey glaze....hot out of the oil and then drizzled....

darn! I think I just gained 3 pounds just thinking about that stuff!

Yeah! I hear ya! ... I'm food lookin right now, and I'm getting hungry!
I better just have a cup of tea and get the heck to bed.

BTW.... How Did the Chief Electrician and Ventillation Mechanic make out with the ceiling fans install?? Tina is on me to put one in the Living Room.
I told her I would just bring that old pedistal fan up from the cellar, and point it up toward the ceiling. Does the same thing! hahahahahaha

He got all four fans installed without so much as one, "OW!" or "DAMIT!" or "Sizzle, Sizzle, Sizzle" as he zaps himself with live wires.....

It's amazing how much moving air helps in keeping it feel much more comfortable even with the a/c turned up to 80°.

We got Hunter fans again - quiet, usually never a problem. Dane said they go together much easier than they use to. The box advertised "Five Minute Fans" ~ and I'd say it took him about 30 minutes total for each fan install....but not a problem. And they're so much less expensive than they use to be. The most expensive one we got was $119. Oh, and all of them had an included light kit so not only did I get ceiling fans, I also got light for the rooms also....they even had light bulbs in the fixtures!

Awesome! Great Job well done. Yeah...the Hunter Brand is what we bought for the bedrooms. They are a great fan.
We got the light kits too with the fancy little shades, and they come on with the remote controller clicker I call it!
The only thing is...we had to turn the lights off from the chain; because any time there is a power outage or a momentary surge, the lights come on all by their little ole selves. If you are gonna run them while away...make sure your lights don't come on with a power outage. they don't go off either; unless you use the remote. If you have just the pull chain ( better choice) then there is no worry!

Oh! Yes! When we were in the Navy, Tina would buy the Bisquit dough in the can, and we would flatten them out and with the cap from the bottle of Vanilla, Tina would press out a hole, and we fried them in deep oil, and we made doughnuts.

Tina liked the sugar, and I liked them plain. OMG they were gone in no time we ate them with such gusto!

I have 2 of them & they both work better then the ceiling fans cheers

I also have those cheap medium size fans from wal mart. Massey.they work so good. I have yet had to turn them up to high.another cheap one that swings back & forth on my office desk.

IF IF IF I stay here I will buy one of those fans with the palm leaf design.Doubt landlord will buy it.he is a great guy but counts his pennies.tightwad.

I want this carpet OUT of here. not happenng..
I want a french door . NOT happening.

I want new kitchen floor. NOT happening.
I want new kitchen counters NOT happening.

I want a patio extended. NOT happening.

I want a spa tub & a stand up shower.SOOOOOOOO NOT happening..

I made the Mediterranean pasta with sausage again yesterday. This time I wrote down the recipe. It's great the day you make it and even better the next day. If you don't have a Sprouts Farmers Market or you can't get the chicken sausage with feta and spinach, just use Italian sausage.

Here's the recipe: http://www.examiner.com/article/try-our-recipe-for-the-best-mediterranean-pasta-with-sausage

I don't know how to post photos here so I hope you can get to the slideshow with photos.

You sound like me. I just glance around and can come up with a list that's a mile long.

As far as the spa tub goes, I don't like the things. I'm getting rid of mine when I re-do the bathroom. I read something one time that has stuck in my head forever, and I think about it every time I take a bath. A guy said the jetted tubs were like petri dishes...water never completely drains from the tubes so it just sits in there and grows bacteria affraid .

That looks good, Jana. I've been wanting to try that sausage. I can get it at Sam's.

Had a Great Supper tonight on the last day of the month!

I made grilled cheese and Tomato (I peel the tomato first so there is no Face Slap or Chin Burn ). I made it in the Pannini machine grill.

I had a nice salad..

The girls..Mommy T and GD had Dominos Pizza.

Dessert will be Oatmeal Cookies that Mommy T made this morning.

Cassie is meeting her brother for the first time today. She has been gone since early morning. She called and said she was bringing brisket sandwiches from Rosedale BBQ. Charlie and Cassie like Rosedale. It is a very old and established place. i have never eaten there but I have tasted their sauce. I didn't think much of it but they really like it.

Everyone's food sounds wonderful. Jana ~ great pics of the progress of the pasta. So many things you can do with those ingredients, switch things out and make it four times a month and never have the "same" thing!

Barb - you know I'm not a salmon lover, BUT .....THAT salmon looks so yummy!

A pannini grill makes such great sandwiches....love to get different kinds of bread and making sandwiches with a nice crunch on both sides at once.

Norm - I hope Cassie had a great time with her brother. That's just surreal to be her age and just meeting him for the first time.

We had friends over for supper - I did a grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, broccoli, green beans and sweet corn. I wanted to use up everything in the refrigerator so it didn't go to waste. I don't know if we're leaving tomorrow mid-day or early Sunday morning. I look around and there seems to be an awful lot to take care of before we make an exit. Oh well, it'll all be done, I'm sure.
