We also had a strange visitor outside Friday in the pouring rain. This little guy just jaunted on up and made himself at home eating the rain-filled plates of what once had been dry cat food. DH and I watched him from inside hoping he wouldn't stay too long. And the feral cats who were keeping out of the rain on our back porch watched him carefully from their vantage points. No one ventured out and luckily he didn't venture any closer.
We had a pretty good video of him (or her) walking about and eating, but for whatever reason couldn't seem to get the video downloaded to my computer from my iPhone. So this pic was taken off the video and isn't terribly clear. We don't see skunks very often (thankfully).
I'm cooking some farm-raised Scottish salmon this weekend. It's my favorite. I try to experiment and eat different kinds of Salmon from Central Market, but this one works best for me. DH doesn't like Salmon. He'll eat catfish or Halibut, shrimp, crayfish, and oysters, but no Salmon. So he'll have some hatch chili sausages for supper. (I'm not much on sausages myself... don't mind some cut up as seasoning in red beans, etc. but not just straight sausages.)
And it is Hatch Chili Pepper Time at Central Market! We bought Hatch Sauce, Hatch fresh peppers, Hatch roasted peppers, Hatch cheese, and Hatch tortillas. And I made the best all-fresh Hatch Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas the other night. I'm going to make another batch this week while the Hatch peppers are still available and freeze it for later.
And it must be getting close to Fall, as I'm craving me some red beans and rice...
I have to mention this here as I was thinking about it a little while ago. One of the blogs I read (Musings) asked if one was allowed to go back 500 years into the past or 500 years into the future, which would one choose? Found this difficult to answer. Not sure I'd want to go either way. Now perhaps it would be intriguing to go back, but not quite so far. I would have liked to have known my great great grandparents and their families. As for the future... I don't know. I guess it could be interesting to know how the world will be 500 years in the future, but with all the Armageddon scenarios, I'm a bit hesitant.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
