I suppose that's not surprising, since this once lovely little town has become a twin of it's larger neighbor Merced, drug capital of the Central Valley. Maybe this kind of thing has always gone on, we just never had social media to keep up.
A few minutes later, HIS neighbor discovered his car had also been vandalized. They all have filled their garages up with stuff and park their vehicles outside. That's a mistake I think. The location of their houses doesn't help either ... very close to a quick-get-away mainstream road.
I'll be setting my alarm every night now. In an effort to let everyone sleep in the early morning hours, I taped sticky notes to the door handle, upon your advice. I'm happy to say it WORKED this morning!!!
Next up ..... my version of a breakfast I'm SURE the men will love. Quiche. I've never made it before, mostly because it involves too much work on the crust. Who wants to spend two hours cooking breakfast?
I found the solution while walking the aisles of our tiny little Mexican food market. Pre-made crusts. I've tried the ones in the box, but they never seem to work well. Tough would be a good description. That's when I saw it ... a pre-made FROZEN crust. Just fill it. How easy is that?
It can't be any worse than the boxed ones, so I bought three. Little did I know there are actually TWO in each package. These happen to be Pillsbury brand deep dish. I filled it with one pound of bacon and one whole onion sliced thin, topped with two cups of Jarlsberg Swiss cheese. I threw in a little cheddar for color. I then filled it up with an egg/cream mixture.
The moment of truth. Even though I forgot to cover it with foil, this came out FABULOUS. Why didn't I know about this before? I suppose because we never had quiche on the ranch. That crust was tender and SO flakey. I'm never making pie crust again! Hopefully the RV group will like it as well.
Now that I've restocked the kitchen, I'll make a second batch of cinnamon sticky rolls. That will probably be it for pre-cooking the rally. I can't even fit another cookie in my freezer, let alone big pans.
Time to start thinking about loading up the rig. Of course it needs a bath first and I'm always going the opposite direction of the truck wash. Fuel will be next, then the loading will begin.
In other good news ... my new gardeners are doing a bang-up job!!!!! Hurrah!!!!!
