Friday The 13th, Fly Around Saturday, Father's Day Feast!





Friday the 13th was a memorable day in my life- mainly for all the wrong reasons! Listed as follows:
1. Got a flat tire just before dentist appt. I had cancelled twice already. Road service came right out, all on time...
2. Got to dentist office at 2pm to find out appt. is for 3 pm.
3. Went home, phone call from doctor- next Tuesday I'm getting blood at the hospital- have to take day off as it will take 8hrs.....
4. Back to dentist, numbed, tooth filled, drool for next 2 hrs....
5. Back home, grabbed wrong set of keys, no house key- locked out! Called son to inquire where he put my extra key I leave in garage- he remembered, and got to live...
6. Wife comes home 1 hour early from new job... Services no longer needed... not a happy lady...
Saturday was better- go figure! We had to go to a graduation open house first. I forget there are people out there who can't cook simple food- had some Kielbasa that was overdone probably around Thursday- by Sat. with canned sauerkraut poured on it, it wasn't better! Next my wife threw me off at a local pizza restaurant for a friends 60th birthday party. She took off for another relatives kid's dance recital. I got kind of a neat gift for the gal- A 1948 half-dollar and a 1948 dime in coin holders( 50+10= 60, coins 60yrs. old!) I then got hauled to a poker party, which my wife came to later... busy day!
Today is Father's Day, which means I cook like I normally do. Today, Manicotti sounded good, with some fresh rolls... Browned and seasoned ground sirloin, mixed with Ricotta, fresh shredded Parmesan and Romano, 1 egg, and a dab of sauce- that's the filling!. I use my Jerky/sausage gun to fill the Manicotti- no broken shells, nice and neat... Meat sauce over the tubes, baked for 30 min, then covered with shredded Mozzarella and baked another 15 minutes... perfect! My youngest son came over for dinner, and brought me a card and the present my family got me- a new propane travel grill! Hope you all remembered your Dads today, mine is gone now, but he is missed today...

Now I'm worried about you -- why do you need blood?!

And I'm sorry about your wife losing her job. :(

I've never had meat in manicotti...

insane mama said...

Why do you need blood?????
Love Manicotti and I am glad Friday the 13th is over also.
Give your wife a hug!

Finn- I'm a quart low- no big deal... Wife is recovering- she really didn't like the job..
InsaneM- A little anemic right now, I'll get my oil changed and be just fine, Manicotti was perfect, and wife is over it! Thanks, though...

do you go with 10w 40 or what is your summer viscosity? manicotti looks great..and the travel grill looks greater!

Jen said...

Happy Father's Day!!! I see food was not to be missed, mmmm!

Claudia said...

Manicotti with out meat would have been better, but it sounds delicious regardless.

Roger said...

Wow what a busy weekend! Glad you had a great Fathers day. I took my Dad fishing he caught a 10 inch perch which is big for here. Have a good'en Buff!!

TentCamper said...

Friday was nuts for me too. God...I need some Manacotti NOW!!!!
Glad your Father's Day was a good one.

Lynda said...

Sorry your wife lost her job, but at least it works out if she didn't like it!

Hope you had a great Sunday! When I am collecting unemployment in a few weeks, I plan to do some cooking too.

Tanya Kristine said...

pinknest said...

Akelamalu said...

Your wife lost her job and you need bloods? That doesn't sound too good Buff.

Nice to hear you had a good father's day though.

buffalodickdy said...

DogB- I basically need my gaskets resealed! They're just adding oil until I get that done!
Once I get the "ring grill" grates that you can set pots and pans on,(the grill comes with grill grates for grilling only!)all will be well...
jen- Thanks! You know me...
claudia- Manicotti without meat would be "Femanicotti" :)
rog- I'll take a stringer of 10" lake perch any day!
tenter- Sounded like you're having some special times, too....
lynda- I'm not sorry, she already has a line on a part time job in the field she is taking classes for! She's fine now...
tanya- Thanks! My one kid came over, and the one living in Kansas City phoned- that is as good as it can get for me!
Pink- Thanks! All fine, don't worry about a thing- I don't!
Ake- Well, we've had better days, but we really are fine- please don't worry at all!

G-Man said...

Sounds yummy Buff!!
You and I are easy to shop for..
For me it's food stuff, AND Harley stuff...G

Anndi said...

Stay away from Friday the 13th!

So you don't need a key to lock the door of your house? That's how I never forget mine.

Glad you had a nice Father's Day though.

snowelf said...

Hi UncleBuf! Whoa--what a weekend!! I guess you take the good with the bad right?? Life would be awfully boring without it... I hope your wife isn't out of work long, I will be sending good vibes your way. :)

That manacotti looks delish! That's one of my favorite foods!! :)

And happy belated Father's Day too! Good to know your son is still alive. ;)

So what did you do with all your spare time?

Like you I did the cooking on Father's Day, but I didn't mind either. Baby back ribs on the smoker. Yum!

Beth said...

manicotti!!!! YUM!

but, '"servicces no longer needed"?????WTH? That was a NEW job, right?

and, like everyone else...WHY DO YOU NEED BLOOD???

buffalodickdy said...

G-man- I'm at that age where I really don't want them giving me stuff! You made me realize how "one dimensional" I've become with my hobby!
anndi- Need the key to lock the door? How old is that house? Thanks for well wishes..
snowniece- Sounds like you've been pretty busy! Glad you're moved and happy!
jeff- I have a new smoker/grill, a new travel propane grill, and what do I do? Bake in the oven on a hot day! I was told Sat. I WILL bring ribs to the 4th of July party....
Beth- New job wasn't a good fit- she is OK now... Just a little anemia, we vampires are very prone to this....

Mona said...

ah! I see that Friday the 13th did work itself on you!

I hope you had a great Father's day! :)

I hope you are not getting anemic again....

MarmiteToasty said...

Saving you the blood and gunge from me leg drain and posting it to you in a tupperware box lol..

Seriously though, hope everything is ok....

Your Friday the 13th sounds like it was hell.....

Sorry about the wifey losing her job, they DIDNT deserve her.... tossers... :)

Mona- I hadn't seen a post in awhile, glad to hear from you! Father's Day was good, and I should feel better soon!
Marmie- If you're "O" positive, I'll take it! All is smoothing out- I hope you are feeling better too!

Bina said...

Okay, please, please PLEASE give me the recipe for that manicotti!!!! I will do anything for it!

And man oh man. You had a rough weekend, huh? But you made it through and had a great Father's Day so that's all good!

Mona said...
