Headed north this morning to Palmer Lake. Hiked the foothills in their backyard. It hit low 70's today, but the wind picked big time around 1pm.
The trails pass the local water sheds.

Fried legs with Cluck and Squeal and avacado and tomato salad. Fresh garlic, Hatch chili's, scallions, squeeze of lemon, and s/p. Also a leftover hunk of smoked pepperjack cheese. On the mini.

They were cooking to hot on the little leaker, so I threw them into a cast iron pan.

    Looks like fun. It was 80 here today.

    Nice looking chicken too. :)

    Colorado sure is purty!! So's your chicken.

    Avocado? :sick:

    I sure hope I get your name for a Secret Santa gift. San Diego County is a hotbed of subversive green avocado-shaped fruit.

    BTW, thank you for your hot dog advice. I think I'll just pass!

  • It hit 80 here, too. It's merely a harbinger of the worst time of year in this neck of the woods.

    Wowww what a nice way to spend the day Molly, Palmer Lake looks beautiful & at the same time you exercise & build an appetite for a nice egged meal
  • Carolina QCarolina Q Posts: 10,533
    Hmm, let me get this straight, Judy. I give you advice which you seem to appreciate. In return, you want to send me avocados? :huh: :sick:

    What do I get if you DON'T like my advice? Prime Rib?

    :laugh: :laugh:

    Molly - I always look forward to photos from your hikes and adventures. They are always so beautiful - these are no exception. Hope you enjoyed your day - and hope you get to see the beautiful moon tonight. I didn't get nearly as great a view as Gator Bait's, but is was striking nonetheless! :)

    Mea culpa. Not nice at all for all the trouble you went to. I'm not trying to change you, Michael, just want you to see the light.

    Eeeeeeek! I wouldn't TOUCH raw calves' liver! Mommy used to make it a lot and I had to have an inch of onions on it. Then it wasn't so bad.

    Better with bacon, no onions. I'm not trying to change you, Judy, just want you to see the light. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
