FALL is FALLING around my feet.
Not that I am wearing FALL colors…………..but I was AMAZED at how beautiful all these different hues came together.
WHAT have I BEEN UP TOO………….
WELL, for starters THE FIRST BORN CALLED wanting a SALMON LASAGNE!
ANY time I get a REQUEST from a SON; I TRY TO FILL IT and I DID!
I had DONE some SHOPPING BEFORE fetching the ingredients. (SEE SPARKLETTES!)
YOU know the HOLIDAYS are coming and I DONOT HAVE ENOUGH BLING TO PARTY RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!
So, Now that has been RECTIFIED I can share this quick recipe with YOU!
The SALMON LASAGNE recipe was given to me by someone in ITALY!GILDA was it YOU?I know YOU taught me to cook THE REAL BEEF LASAGNE but this is a MYSTERY………if your OUT there reading me please comment and let me know!I CANNOT BELIEVE I DONOT REMEMBER!
FIRST we cook the noodles.They ALWAYS Break for me……..even if I STIR………etc etc.
These are GLUTEN FREE so a bit softer to the touch.
Then we make the BÉCHAMEL SAUCE!
BUTTER ~ FLOUR ~ MILK
NOTE MY NAILS
MY first EVER GEL NAIL MANICURE…………….
This is probably week 4 by the growth.I am on at least week 6 now and still NO CHIPS!
Now it is TIME TO Add the LAYERS………..NOODLE,
Just KEEP GOING Until ALL the NOODLES are GONE.
End with noodles and grate some PARMESAN on TOP
To finish it off.
Bake at 300 degrees until heated through about 30 minutes.
I was doing HOUSEWORK which IAM the first to ADMIT I AM NOT GOOD AT!
Nothing complicated just laundry, putting things away…….bending down……..you know the DRILL.
Well, I could feel my back that night wasNOT feeling TOO PERKY!
A few days later I was holding my CAT.Got up holding him and put him back in the chair we were sitting UPON.
I bent…………..OMG Nearly fell to the GROUND!
It has been ONE MONTH that the BACK has not FELT in TIP TOP SHAPE!I am BETTER…….able to move and sleep and I even started back at REFORMER.But I have to say I am MOVING S L O W L Y.
I still feel the P A I N.
SO, here is a GLAMOUR SHOT of the COLORS!!Lying on a love seat at the foot of my bed; AGAIN I was SMITTEN with the HUES!
Trying to decide my next PROJECT of doing NOTHING what could it be!
I feel GOD AWFUL Here but do NOTE; no matter how BAD I FEEL I put the DARK LIPSTICK ON!
FEEDING THE GIRLS has been challenging to say the LEAST.
As there is A BIG STEP UP into the CHICKEN COOP which did not GO OVER WELL with the BACK!
Then we have RUBY here doing her JETE!!
I adore RUBY.
She just showed up in our neighborhood one day!Walked right up to me and I picked HER UP.
I decided she would be SAFER In the CHICKEN COOP than lose in THE HOOD with PREDATORS!
WHEN do I use THEN verses THAN.I remember as a child we always wrote THAN.WHAT is the difference can someone PLEASE TELL ME!I am to lazy to GOOGLE IT!Plus, I probably still wouldn’t UNDERSTAND.I know I have some AWESOME writer’s OUT THERE who probably just CRINGE at my SPELLING!I wasNOT crazy about SCHOOL as a CHILD or A TEENAGER for that MATTER.I headed to BALLET SCHOOL five days a week in High School and that was where MY interests were focused.I SO wanted to become a PRIMA BALLERINA!
BEEN EATING A LOT Of these lately!
Bought them for MY MOTHER and take small amounts when I visit…….BUT THAT JUG we got at COSTCO sits in my refrigerator.
YES, MY REFRIGERATOR because that way I do not see them and they are HIDDEN!That has worked for about TWO MONTHS……………NOW my eye has zeroed in on them.
Plus, MOM isNOT eating them either!
I do MY MOTHER’s LAUNDRY………..
DON’T ASK WHY because that will throw me into HYSTERICS.
Let’s just say things are not disappearing nor are her pants RUINED from their washing machine.I have to IRON most of MOM’s shirts………which is OKAY as I like to iron NOW.I have the time Plus, SANTA got me a NEW IRON LAST YEAR that WORKS!SO,I took the IRONING OUTSIDE into the GARDEN to get a GOOD SHOT for SOFISTAFUNK.
She made the long denim skirt I am wearing here with DEEP DEEP POCKETS!
ARI SETH COHEN found HER on the STREETS of NEW YORK.
SHE LOOKS LIKE A FUN FABULOUS WOMAN.I had the PLEASURE of speaking with HER and found her to be delightful.Plus, with her shipment she sent a bag of tea with the PURCHASE!
ANYONE who takes the TIME TO do this is a FRIEND of MINE!
SOFISTAFUNK wrap JOB!
all tied up with LACE!
ALONG with the skirt came a BOW TIE …………..A THEATRICAL BOW TIE.I am wearing a MAN’s TUXEDO shirt with the DENIM SKIRT and the BOW TIE sitting on THE KITCHEN TABLE.I keep trying to SHARE bits an BOBS of the LA CASA with you.MISTER ED’S doors that open upon the backyard with the PIZZA OVEN in the distance………….do you recall the SHOW about a HORSE who could TALK called MISTER ED?I LOVED that show as a kid.
Here is another way to stay warm and HIGH-LIGHT that DOUBLE CHIN both my PARENTS GAVE ME!
MY MOTHER at 91 and 3 months.
She wouldNOT start coloring with ME standing behind her!
So, I SNAPPED and LEFT!
I got all DOLLED UP in LAYERS for the SAN FRANCISCO FALL ANTIQUE SHOW.
Here I am trying to CAPTURE the entire ENSEMBLE.
AS I had a shoe Quandary!
The LEOPARD rain boot would have tied in with the THEME
Only thing……. it wasNOT raining!
IT WAS A BIT QUIRKY!
I went with the URNS.
ITALIAN HUSBAND TOLD me via TEXT that was the BETTER choice!
I think HE was RIGHT!
