Fishing is a skill that obviously takes years to develop but we are getting really good at “the act of fishing”. Although we have managed to reel in a couple of one-pounders (whopp-dee-doo) most of them have been the size that most pros use for bait. Regardless, it’s fun, we enjoy it and the pups love it. Bobo sits and stares at our bobbers waiting impatiently for us to magically pull strange floppy things from the water. Well…Sunday afternoon Bobo had his first swimming lesson and hated every minute of it but he really felt comfortable riding in the back of the kayak. Maggie on the other hand is a lab mix and LOVES, LOVES, LOVES the water. She also LOVES, LOVES, LOVES rolling in and eating dead fish so needless to say “she no smell good today”.
Our little garden is doing really well. A new planting of basil has sprouted and the asparagus (one skinny spear) is starting to emerge. I had read that asparagus does not do well in a pot but since our soil is so rocky there is not another option.
Yesterday I made fajitas but took the lazy route and used the pre-marinated beef from HEB. For the avocado dip I took extra time and made it super-duper delicious (like the kind at Mexican restaurant that you can’t stop eating). It was easy to make, was extra creamy and with the added lime juice it retained the fresh avocado color even though I had prepared it much earlier in the day. This is one that you will definitely want to try.
- 2 avocados
- 1/2 cup crema (or sour cream)
- 1 jalapeño, finely minced or grated
- 1 teaspoon lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Put all ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
Thanks for stopping by….have a great Monday!
