We had had a terrific time at the beach yesterday. Here’s Nick and Dane playing in the waves – the water was perfect!
Don’t worry, Nick was not washed out to sea. Here are few more pics – click a pic to embiggen
Well look at this. The whole family was together Thursday, so we tried to capture this Kodak moment after dinner, but the sun was going down and (spoiler alert: I’m an idiot) I didn’t know how to use the timer on my camera. Amanda figured it out, but by the time we took the picture it was dark and the picture was pretty terrible. Thank Trump for Photoshop! A little playing around and it’s not bad at all.

It’s supposed to be lucky to eat beans on the first of the year, or so says the “Organization of American Bean Producers.” So, we started 2016 out right with a batch of Cowboy Beans using Brenda’s Dad’s recipe. Yum!
Like any good cook, Brenda’s dad had no written recipe for this, he just made it up as he went along. It’s sweet, tangy, and bacon-y. What’s not to like?
You can also throw in green peppers, molasses, chili powder, liquid smoke (hickory flavor), or whatever you have laying around that you think might taste good.
Cook the bacon, onion, and hamburger and drain. Throw in everything else and play around until it tastes good to you.
