    Brr, another cold morning here. By the end of the wee we will have some nights dipping into the thirties. No help for it, I have to get out this morning for a service trip on the car. Had an appointment at the deal (still free there) for about three weeks. I wonder if they have labor problems too? Never had to wait before.

    Mornin’ Menage, Wee, and all. Another sunny day, as usual. It has stayed fairly cool, though. Going to my friend’s today and we are going to have me car cleaned. Next week we will be at the beach. I have a feeling we will be chilly. LOL Hope you all don’t get too cold.

  5. While bringing imaging to surgical center* driving up highway, saw big 18/20 wheel tractor trailer with sign on back said:
    “Drivers Needed
    $25,000. Bonus”
    Yup, I typed that right… 25 THOUSAND!

    *1st appointment with surgeon next week.

  6. So hungry – really miss wheat & other carbos. Here is a pretty & tasty looking recipe to brighten up the day: A French Toast Casserole studded with fresh blueberries, which is super easy to prepare and topped with warm homemade Blueberry Syrup. imho up the maple syrup & cinnamon a little, maybe chope up a few pecans & sprinkle on top 😉

    For the Blueberry French Toast Casserole

    1 1/2 loaves French Bread, cut into cubes
    4 oz. cream cheese
    1 tablespoon milk
    1/2 cup powdered sugar
    1 cup blueberries
    1 cup milk
    5 eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    1/4 cup maple syrup

    For the Blueberry Syrup

    1 cup cold water
    2 tablespoons corn starch
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 cup blueberries


    1. Spray an 8-x-8 inch casserole dish with nonstick spray.
    2. Spread half of the French Bread cubes in an even layer over the bottom of the casserole dish.
    3. Mix together cream cheese, milk, and powdered sugar until well combined. Mixture should be somewhat thick and not watery. Add more powdered sugar if mixture seems too thin. Pour over bread cubes and sprinkle with blueberries.
    4. Add remaining bread cubes over the top.
    5. Combine 1 cup milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and syrup. Pour mixture over bread cubes and sprinkle with additional blueberries. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
    6. Remove casserole from fridge 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and bake covered for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 30 minutes or until the center is set.
    7. During the last 10 minutes of baking time, prepare the blueberry syrup. In a small saucepan, combine cold water, corn starch and sugar. Heat mixture and bring to a simmer. Add blueberries and continue simmering for 10 minutes. Serve casserole with warm syrup immediately.

    Syrup can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge until needed. Simply reheat in a microwave until warm.
    Casserole is best enjoyed served immediately, but can be stored in the fridge for 2 days. [ G&C comment: ya right like it would last that long!]
    You can substitute frozen berries. Also, you can use any type of berry you prefer.

    Republicans are leading in VA and NJ governors’ races. 91% of the votes are in in VA, 61% in NJ. Boston Rat mayoral candidate just conceded.
