Rain! ~ Smilebox Song Dog Kennels ~ Bats ~ Layered Black Bean Dip

Good 48ยบ drizzling morning. Yesterday the rain started about 4:45 and came down good most of the night. We got a total of 3/4". Good!! The Weather Bug says Eugene is under alert. Looks like lots of powerful rain laden clouds over their heads.

10-15 is radio code speak for 'prisoner in custody'.

Do you have a party or family gathering coming up? Here is a yummy layered black bean dip:

1 8oz pkg cream cheese
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1¼ cups canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1 10oz can Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilies well drained
1 cup finely shredded 4 cheese blend
1 green onion, both white and green sliced

In medium mixing bowl blend the softened cream cheese with the yogurt until creamy. Spread this mixture onto the bottom of a shallow dish or pie plate. Layer the black beans over the cream cheese, then layer the diced tomatoes. Top with cheese and add green onions. Serve with tortilla chips.
For more flavor stir in some taco seasoning to the cream cheese mixture. Double recipe, and put in 9x13 pan.

Chicken Cacciatore Day

And... it's also White Cane Safety Day celebrates and recognizes the achievements of the blind and visually impaired, and their independence. That independence is represented by the white cane that they use to travel from place to place.

The white cane is an invaluable tool for the blind. It affords blind people a freedom of movement they otherwise may not have. The white cane is a well recognized symbol of independence.
If you know someone who is blind or visually impaired, celebrate this day with him or her. We suggest you let them take you for a walk.
