Friday Recipe & Jokes.

Hello There People ~~ I hope that all is well with you

and your families. And for those who are ill, may things

improve very soon. I wish you all health and happiness.


My good friend, Granny, is having trouble with her blog

being down – temporarily – we hope. Her husband Ray is

back in hospital after only 2 days at home. Prayers and

positive thoughts and wishes will be appreciated.

Comments can be left on her blog which is showing at

22nd June. She lost several posts after that. Thinking of

you Ann and hope all will be well with Ray as well as your blog.


<><><> RECIPE for PASTA SALAD <><><>

This is a favorite of mine, especially during Summer.

Preparatiom ~~ 20 minutes

Cooking ~~ 10 minutes. Serves 4 (at least)

2 ½ cups (225g / 7ozs) pasta spirals. Bring a large pan

of salted water to boil, add pasta and cook for 10 mins.

Drain and rinse under cold water and place in large bowl.

Add the following: 150g (5 oz) cherry tomatos halved

1 red or green capsicum cubed, 3 spring onions (shallots)

sliced. 100g (3 ½ oz) button mushrooms if liked.

Half a barbecued chicken shredded, Half cup cooked peas

¾ cup of whole egg mayonnaise – or whatever mayonnaise

you like. Mix all together well. Can use less capsicum.

<><><><> A tip – I use a small can of peas and corn in

this , also other salads, and in quiches. <><><><>

Now for some fun ----

God Saw you hungry & created McDonalds, Wendys, and Dairy Queen.


He saw you thirsty & created Coke, Juice, Coffee and Water.


GOD saw you in the dark & created Light.

<><><><><> GOD saw you without a Good looking, adorable , FRIEND.........

so He created M E



Send this to your good friends who are lucky

to have you for a friend.


Walk this day in peace

and in the warmth of

the sun.


Some of the older jokes seen popular ……

A farmer went out one day and bought a brand new

rooster for his chickrn coop. The new rooster struts

over to the old rooster and says… “OK old fart, time

for you to retire.”

The old rooster replies, “Come on, surely you cannot

handle ALL those chickens. Look what it has done to

me. Can’t you just let me have the two old hens over

in the corner?”

The young rooster says, “Beat it; you are washed up

and I am taking over.”

The old rooster says, “ I tell you what, young stud, I

will race you around the farmhouse. Whoever wins gets

the entire chicken coop.”

The young rooster laughs, “You know you don’t stand a

chance, old man. So just to be fair, I will give you a

head start.”

The old rooster takes off running. About 15 seconds

later the young rooster takes off running after him.

They round the front porch of the farmhouse and the

young rooster has closed the gap.

He is only about 5 feet behind the old rooster and gaining

fast. The farmer, meanwhile, is sitting in his usual spot

on the front porch when he sees the roosters running by.

He grabs his shotgun and – BOOM – he blows the young

rooster to bits. The farmer sadly shakes his head and

says, “Darn…. third gay rooster I bought this month.”

Moral of this story……

Don’t mess with us old farts – age, skill, and treachery

will always overcome youth and arrogance !!

<><><><> The cost of a good woman. <><><><>

God called Adam aside one day and said, “I’ve been

pondering the best way to expand on the species of man,

I think procreation is the way to go so before creating

a mate for you I thought I’d give you some options.

How would you like a mate who would slways do as she was

asked to with loving good grace, prepare delicious meals for

you, keep your home in immaculate condition, bear you sons

and daughters and bring them up as offspring that you would

be proud of, and at the same time be always willing

to satisfy your male needs.”

“Wow God,” said Adam “that sounds really great, how much

would a mate like that cost?”

“Well,” said God, “that’s one thing about her, she would be

expensive, probably an arm and a leg.”

“Gee God” said Adam, “what could I get for a rib?”

<><><> Goodnight, good morning or whatever. <><><>

One of the best things about reading recipes from elsewhere than the USA is googling the ingredients. Salad sounds yummy.

Loved your jokes and this time I googled
