Things are seldom dull out here in Montana. In a mere 24 hours, we had enough sleet to make the road quite slippery. Then the next day a 3 hour power outage.
We were able to cook our dinner on the gas grill. We had a recipe out of the August 2009 Bon Appetit. "Salmon with Snap Peas, Yellow Peppers, and Dill-Pistachio Pistou. I cooked the orange and yellow peppers and garlic on the grill in a saute pan. Trout grilled the salmon on the grill and we had prepared ahead of time a pistou of fresh chopped dill, finely chopped green onions and finely chopped pistachios combined with a little olive oil.
It was a very tasty dinner even though we do have candles on the shopping list since it was getting a little dark in the house for eating and a little too cold outside to eat.
And the the topper...on the way home from church this morning, we saw a bear. Of course, by the time we backed-up, the little devil had walked deeper into the woods. If you click on the picture and enlarge it, you just might see a glimpse of the bear. It is always exciting and my first thought was "I am glad I am not walking by these woods this morning."
Sidelined, but not idle
