Good 57º SUPER AWFUL SMOKEY morning!!
The smoke completely hid my mountain yesterday afternoon and continues today. Our high was 95º.
Yesterday while I was in the kitchen and after having just filled one of the hummingbird feeders it was taken over by 6 birds. This taken through the kitchen window....
Later I was working on my blog for today and Bruiser came in from outside and decided to nap right on the middle of my desk! ♥
Picture of the Day
Jalapeño Popper Dressing......
Jalapeño poppers are made by stuffing jalapeños with cheese, commonly cream cheese, and then either breading them and frying until crispy or wrapping them in bacon and grilling them. With these flavors in mind the dressing has a base of creamy and tangy cream cheese along with plenty of jalapeños. Too make the dressing pourable Greek yogurt and butter milk were added and seasoned with garlic, green onions and cilantro. Since you can't add a "crispy coating" of bacon, bacon was added to the dressing. The resulting jalapeno dressing is super smooth and creamy with just the right amount of heat and all of the flavor of jalapeno poppers! Using a low fat cream cheese works perfectly well in this dressing meaning that it is also pretty light! Salads better beware this summer as this jalapeño popper dressing is coming!
