Mmmm Mmm....some Tuscan Meatloaf with Mushroom Sauce...

Well be anuther great recipe' frum down Texas way....thank ya Missy Sue....

Tuscan Meatloaf with Mushroom Sauce Recipe

8 oz mushrooms1 lb lean ground beef

1 Tbsp milk

One slice white bread, crust removed

1 Tbsp finely chopped yellow onion

1 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 Tbsp chopped ham

1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 teaspoon minced garlic

1 lightly beaten egg yolk

1/2 cup unflavored bread crumbs

4 Tbsp tomato paste

2 Tbsp vegetable oil

1 Tbsp butter1/3 cup dry white wine

1) microwave the mushrooms in 1/2 cup of water for 3 minutes, reserving the water.

2) In a bowl, break up the beef with a fork. In a small bowl, combine the milk and bread, and mash until creamy. Add the milk and bread to the meat, along with the onion, salt, pepper, ham, cheese, and garlic. Mix thoroughly by hand. Mix in the lightly beaten egg yolk. Shape meat into a loaf about two and a half inches thick. Roll the loaf in the bread crumbs until evenly coated.

3) Drain the mushrooms (reserving the soaking water).Chop the mushrooms roughly and set aside. Whisk in the tomato paste to the mushroom water and set aside.

4) Heat the butter and vegetable oil in a Dutch oven or heavy casserole pan just big enough for the meat. Brown the meat on all sides in the pan over medium heat after the butter foam subsides. Add the wine. Increase heat to medium high. Boil wine briskly until reduced one half, turning meat carefully once or twice. Turn heat to medium low and add chopped mushrooms.

Add the tomato paste mushroom water to the meat and mushrooms. Cover and cook at a simmer for 30 minutes, turning the meat once or twice.

5) Carefully remove meat to a cutting board. Allow it to cool slightly and settle. Cut into slanted slices about 3/8 of an inch thick. If the sauce seems thin, concentrate it by boiling rapidly for a few minutes.

Pour a little sauce on a warm serving platter, arrange the meat slices, then cover the remainder of the sauce.

Serves about four.
I just loves a great Meatloaf......

Some Friday Frolics....

We'll start with a Blonde joke.....

A surgeon went to check on his blonde patient after an operation.

She was awake, so he examined her."You'll be fine," he said.

She asked, "How long will it be before I am able to have a normal sex life again doctor?"

The surgeon seemed to pause, which alarmed the girl.

"What's the matter Doctor? I will be all right, won't I?"

He replied, "Yes, you'll be fine. It's just that no one has ever asked me that after having their tonsils out."

...and, I think I mighta solved my squirrel problem......

Yupper...I know...seems a little cruel...but I just couldn't help myself.....LOLOLOL...


I hate it when people forward bogus warnings, and I have even done it myself a couple times unintentionally... but this one is real, and it's important. So please send this warning to everyone on your E-mail list.

If someone comes to your front door saying they are checking for ticks due to the warm weather and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around with your arms up,

DO NOT DO IT!! THIS IS A SCAM!! They only want to see you naked.

I wish I'd gotten this yesterday

It's tough bein a man.....

Well Sir....this here was sent to me by a woman in Texas who obviously understands what it be like to be a man......

Do you know how tough it is being a man…?

If you put a woman on a pedestal and try to protect her from the rat race, you’re a male chauvinist.

If you stay home and do the housework, you’re a pansy.

If you work too hard there is never any time for her. If you don’t work enough, you’re a good-for-nothing bum.

If she has a boring repetitive job with low pay, this is exploitation. If you have a boring repetitive job with low pay, you should get off your ass and find something better.

If you get a promotion ahead of her, that is favoritism. If she gets a job ahead of you, it’s equal opportunity.

If you mention how nice she looks, it’s sexual harassment. If you keep quiet, it’s male indifference.

If you cry, you’re a wimp. If you don’t, you’re an insensitive bastard.

If you make a decision without consulting her, you’re a chauvinist. If she makes a decision without consulting you, she’s a liberated woman.

If you ask her to do something she doesn’t enjoy, that’s domination. If she asks you, it’s a favor.

If you appreciate the female form and frilly underwear, you’re pervert. If you don’t, you’re gay.

If you like a woman to shave her legs and keep in shape, you’re sexist. If you don’t, you’re unromantic.

If you try to keep yourself in shape, you’re vain. If you don’t, you’re a slob.

If you buy her flowers, you’re after something. If you don’t, you’re not thoughtful.

If you’re proud of your achievements, you’re full of yourself. If you don’t, you’re not ambitious.

If she has a head ache, she’s tired. If you have a headache, you don’t love her anymore.

If you want it Too often, you’re oversexed. if you don’t, there must be someone else.

A truism.....

Well Sir....just couldn't resist this one.....

Sleeping Beauty, Tom Thumb, and Quasimodo were all talking one day.

Sleeping Beauty said, "I believe myself to be the most beautiful girl in the world."

Tom Thumb said, "I must be the smallest person in the world."

Quasimodo said, "I absolutely have to be the ugliest person in the world."

So they all decided to go to the Guinness Book of World Records to have their claims verified.

Sleeping Beauty went in first and came out looking deliriously happy. "It's official, I AM the most beautiful girl in the world."

Tom Thumb went next and emerged triumphant, "I am now officially the smallest person in the world."

Sometime later, Quasimodo comes out looking utterly confused and says "Who the hell is Rosie O'Donnell ?

In case yur interested in helpin these good folks....

Well Sir...heres a copy of a Newsletter I receive regularly...thought I'd pass it on to anyone who might be interested in helpin these good folks.....

Help educate the world about Hamas rockets.
Help improve Israel's image in the media
Your generous donation allows The Israel Project to provide facts to the media and the world about Israel.
Help stop these rocket attacks. Please give now.
May 16, 2007
Dear Supporter of Israel
An Israeli mother and her three children were wounded this week by rockets from Gaza. On Tuesday, 24 rockets hit Israel and wounded 30 people. Since Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, Palestinian terrorists have fired more than 1,300 rockets into Israel.
The Palestinian response? More TV campaigns – this time with a Mickey Mouse look-alike – to teach children to be terrorists.
We need your help educating the media about these attacks.
Today there are huge and deadly fights between Hamas and Fatah. Palestinian terrorists are trying to draw Israel into their fight. However, how many rockets on civilians can Israel take?
The IDF may have to act firmly to destroy the rockets and the workshops where they are made. The media will come to Sderot and Gaza to cover this story. Your help can help make sure they get the facts they need to present the truth.
During the Second Lebanon War, The Israel Project (TIP) set up media centers in Northern Israel to provide journalists with sources, press briefings, background research, transportation, information on lodging and anything else they needed. Press coverage of the war was seen worldwide and in general Israel was portrayed as defending themselves.
Today we need to set up the same kind of media center in Sderot, the town being pummeled by Hamas Kassam rockets. We need to act now to make sure Israel is again seen as defending their citizens against terror from the sky.
Please help educate journalists and help protect Israel by supporting our work at
TIP needs your help to:
-Staff Sderot media services
-Fly journalists via helicopter over the attack area so they can see Israel’s security challenges
-Train residents to speak to the media, not only in English, but also in German, French and Spanish
-Create signage in multiple languages as backdrops for journalists’ video
-Shoot video which journalists can add to their stories
-Take and distribute photos to illustrate newspaper articles
-Provide researched background information hourly to help journalists meet their deadlines
Our Washington DC and Jerusalem staff are efficient, but educating the media costs money. We need your help and we need it now.
Please help fund our Sderot media center at Help us educate the press and the world – and allow the IDF to stop Palestinian rockets and protect innocent Israeli children.
Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, Founder and President The Israel Project
P.S. We can’t wait for another attack to prepare this media center. Give a generous tax-deductible gift today at Israel and our global Jewish family need you!
Thanks folks....Cookie

Comment Moderation...

Well Sir....due to the unwanted comments of a rather unsavory charecter who has a blog called "The Sentinel"...I've had to enable the "comment moderation" feature....

Oh well....we all get these guys sooner or later.....

Ah Yes...the Darwin Awards..says sumthin bout our "Gene"...

2007 Darwin Awards

In case you have been waiting breathlessly for this year's Darwin Awards--awards are given each year to bestow upon (the remains or Estate of, in most cases) that individual, who through single-minded self-sacrifice, has done the most to remove undesirable elements from the human gene pool.Just think... until these events occurred, these same people were walking the streets just like normal people.

SIXTH PLACE: Goes to a San Anselmo , California man who died when he hit a lift tower at the Mammoth mountain ski area while riding down the slope on a foam pad. 22-year old David Hubal was pronounced dead at Central Mammoth Hospital.

The accident occurred about 3 a.m., the Mono County Sheriff's department said. Hubal and his friends apparently had hiked up a ski run called Stump alley and removed some yellow foam protectors from lift towers, said Lt. Mike Donnelly of the Mammoth Lakes Police Department. The pads are used to protect skiers who might hit towers. The group Apparently used the pads to slide down the ski slope and Hubal crashed into a tower. It has since been investigated and determined the tower he hit was the one with its pad removed.

FIFTH PLACE: Goes to Robert Puelo, 32, was apparently being disorderly in a St. Louis market. When the clerk threatened to call the police, Puelo grabbed a hot dog, shoved it into his mouth and walked out without paying. Police found him unconscious in front of the store. Paramedics removed the six-inch wiener from his throat where it had choked him to death.

FOURTH PLACE: Goes to poacher Marino Malerba of Spain, who shot a stag standing above him on an overhanging rock and was killed instantly when it fell on him.

THIRD PLACE:"Man loses face at party " A man at a West Virginia party (probably related to the winner last year, a man in Arkansas who used the .22 bullet to replace the fuse in his pickup truck) popped a blasting cap into his mouth and bit down, triggering an explosion that blew off his lips, teeth, and tongue. Jerry Stromyer, 24, of Kincaid, bit the blasting cap as a prank during the party late Tuesday night, said Cpl. M.D. Payne. "Another man had it in an aquarium hooked to a battery and was trying to explode it.

It wouldn't go off and this guy said I'll show you how to set it off." He put it into his mouth, bit down and it blew all his teeth out and his lips and tongue off, Payne said. Stromyer was listed in guarded condition Wednesday with extensive facial injuries, according to a spokesperson at Charleston Area Medical Division. "I just can't imagine anyone doing something like that," Payne said.
(Note: Maybe that's why they call these the Darwin Awards)

SECOND PLACE: Doctors at Portland University Hospital said an Oregon man shot through the skull by a hunting arrow is lucky to be alive and will be released soon from the hospital. Tony Roberts, 25, lost his right eye last weekend during an initiation into a men's rafting club, Mountain Men Anonymous (probably known now as Stupid Mountain Men Anonymous) in Grants Pass, Oregon. A friend tried to shoot a beer can off his head, but the arrow entered Robert's right eye.

Doctors said that had the arrow gone 1 millimeter to the left, a major blood vessel would have been cut and Roberts would have died instantly. Neurosurgeon, Doctor Johnny Delashaw, at the University Hospital in Portland said the arrow went through 8 to 10 inches of brain with the tip protruding at the rear of his skull, yet somehow managed to miss all major blood vessels. Delashaw also said that had Roberts tried to pull the arrow out on his own he surely would have killed himself. Roberts admitted afterwards that he and his friends had been drinking that afternoon. Said Roberts, "I feel so dumb about this." No charges have been filed, but the Josephine County district attorney's office said the initiation stunt is under investigation.
(He might be a contender for first place, but he survived)

THIS YEAR'S WINNER: John Pernicky and his friend, Sal Hawkins, of the great state of Washington, decided to attend a local Metallica concert at the George Washington amphitheater. Having no tickets (but having had 18 beers between them), they thought it would be easy to "hop" over the nine foot fence and sneak into the show. They pulled their pickup truck over to the fence and the plan was for Mr. Pernicky, who was 100 pounds heavier than Mr. Hawkins, to hop the fence and then assist his friend over. Unfortunately for (the late) Mr. Pernicky, there was a 30-foot drop on the other side of the fence. Having heaved himself over, he found himself crashing through a tree.

His fall was abruptly halted (and broken, along with his arm) by a large branch that snagged him by his shorts. Dangling from the tree with a broken arm, he looked down and saw some bushes below him. Possibly figuring the bushes would break his fall, he removed his pocket knife and proceeded to cut away his shorts to free himself from the tree. Finally free, Mr.Pernicky crashed into holly bushes. The sharp leaves scratched his ENTIRE body and now, without the protection of his shorts, a holly branch penetrated his rectum.

To make matters worse, upon landing his pocket knife penetrated his thigh. Hawkins, seeing his friend in considerable pain and agony, threw him a rope and tried to pull him to safety by tying the rope to the pickup truck and slowly driving away. However, in his drunken haste, he put the truck into reverse and crashed through the fence, landing on his friend and killing him. Police arrived to find the crashed pickup with its driver thrown 100 feet from the truck and dead at the scene from massive internal injuries. Upon moving the truck, they found John deceased under it half-naked, scratches on his body, a holly stick up his ass, a knife in his thigh, and his shorts dangling from a tree branch 25 feet in the air.

Congratulations gentlemen. You win. Five more idiots have been removed from the gene pool and we are richer because of your supreme sacrifice.

Penguins love Ice Cream.... R-Rated

The Cookie is gonna try to be more Politically Correct.....

Well Sir.....Over the past few weeks, I have received many funny images/jokes and have posted them to friends, and on my blog, who I thought shared the same sense of humour. Unfortunately, I seemed to have upset a few people and received criticism for being sexist and shallow.

So, from now on I am only posting pictures of old monuments, nature and other cultural sights which are educational for your mind.

Here is a picture of the Pont Neuf Bridge in Toulouse, France.

Oh kinda dish..... Spagetti w/ Parmesan & Bacon sauce...

Mmm mmmm..... Thank ya Missy Sue....

Spaghetti with Parmesan and Bacon

The eggs and milk create a rich, creamy sauce that coats the pasta. The key to the creaminess is tempering the eggs - heating them gently so they don't cook too fast and curdle. Do this by slowly whisking in the hot water in which the pasta cooked.

1 pound uncooked spaghetti
12 bacon slices, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 large eggs
1 cup frozen petite green peas, thawed
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain in a colander over a bowl, reserving 1/2 cup hot cooking liquid.

While pasta cooks, cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings in pan.

Discard remaining drippings; set bacon aside. Add garlic to drippings in pan; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly.

Combine milk, salt, pepper, and eggs, stirring with a whisk. Gradually add reserved hot cooking liquid to milk mixture, stirring constantly with a whisk.

Add pasta, milk mixture, and peas to skillet; cook over low heat 3 minutes or until sauce thickens. Add bacon and cheese; stir to combine.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 1/4 cups)

Ya gotta love Cops.... and the Russian housewife....

A female motorcycle officer stops a man for running a red light. The guy is a real jerk and comes running back to the motor officer. The violator demands to know why he is being harassed by the Gestapo! So the officer calmly tells him of the red light violation. The "Motorist" instantly goes on a tirade, questioning the officer's ancestry, sexual orientation, etc., in rather explicit terms. The officer, being a professional, takes it all in stride figuring "battleship mouth and rowboat ass".

The tirade goes on without the cop saying anything. When she gets done with writing the citation she puts an "AH" in the lower right corner of the narrative portion of the citation. She then hands it to the "Violator" for his signature.

The guy signs the cite angrily, tearing the paper, and when presented his copy points to the "AH" and demands to know what it stands for. The officer then removes her mirrored sunglasses, gets in the middle of the guy's face and said, "That's so when we go to court, I'll remember you're an asshole!"

Three months later they are in court. The "Violator" has such a bad record he is about to lose his license and has hired an attorney to represent him. On the stand the officer testifies to seeing the man run the red light. Under cross-examination, the defense attorney asks, "Officer, is this a reasonable facsimile of the citation you issued my client?"

Officer; "Yes sir, this is the defendant's copy, his signature and mine, same number at the top."

Attorney: "Officer, is there any particular marking or notation on this citation you don't normally make?"

Officer: "Yes sir, in the lower right corner of the narrative there is an 'AH', underlined."

Attorney: "What does the AH stand for, officer?"

Officer? "Aggressive and Hostile, Sir."

Attorney: "Aggressive and hostile?"

Officer: "Yes, Sir? "

Attorney: "Officer, are you sure it doesn't stand for Asshole?"

Officer: "Well, Sir, you know your client better than I do!"
Russian wife in Toronto

A Russian woman married a Canadian gentleman and they lived happily ever after inToronto. However, the poor lady was not very proficient in English, but did manage to communicate with her husband. The real problem arose whenever she had to shop for groceries.

One day, she went to the butcher and wanted to buy chicken legs. She didn't know how to put forward her request, and in desperation, clucked like a chicken and lifted up her skirt to show her thighs. Her butcher got the message, and gave her the chicken legs.
Next day she needed to get chicken breasts, again she didn't know how to say it, and so she clucked like a chicken and unbuttoned her blouse to show the butcher her breasts! The butcher understood again, and gave her some chicken breasts.
On the 3rd day, the poor lady needed to buy sausages. Unable to find a way to communicate this, she brought her husband to the store...

What were you thinking? Hellooooooo, her husband speaks English! Now get back to your emails.
