Thankfully the fires are getting contained and we had a huge thunder storm complete with lots of rain. The smoke has scoured out and the windows are open!! I spent the day doing storm clean up and organizing. And then I went in to create a recipe for dinner. Life is settling in again – well as good as it can with covid.

And tomorrow is the first day of fall. Leaves will be falling, the air gets crisp and it’s time to have soup for dinner. Do you know…

National Cheeseburger Day!

National Cheeseburger day – it’s a day that a lot of places give out special deals. Just do a google search and see. McDonalds is selling cheeseburgers for $ .50 – Fifty cents! Applebee’s and Red Robin have special deals today on the iconic cheeseburger. Many local restaurants offer BOGOs or reduced prices. So there’s no excuse not to celebrate this sandwich!

Slow Cooker Brazilian Style Beef and Black Beans

image_pdfimage_print

I love my slow cooker. Put dinner in and leave it. It’s ready when you get home. And this dish is so easy and so delicious you’ll make it many times. Feijoada is a stew from Brazil. Like many traditional dishes there are many versions. The one thing that is always the same is the black beans. This is my version of feijoada and it was a huge hit with my family. Give it a try! Make your own adjustments – but make sure you add those beans!

What’s for Dinner? Sunday link up #280

OK 2020 – We’re ready for life to settle down!  This last week has been a week of fear and tension and anxiety.

It all started with high winds on Monday. A huge branch fell, hit the back stoop and then fell across one of the ponds.

Yes – there is a pond under there!

It did some minor damage but made a huge mess and had to be cut up before we could move it. Unfortunately those winds fueled wild fires and we have devastation all around us.

By Tuesday they started evacuating areas. Everything was bathed in an eerie red glow.

My home is right on the edge of the evacuation zones. We talked about what we would take, how we would pack the cats (we have four) and where we would go if we need to leave.

Gratefully, we have been able to stay in our home, but so many people have had to evacuate – and so many homes and lives have been lost – and still the fires rage!

Our air quality is the worst in the world!! Yes, the WORLD! So I’ve been staying inside, trying not to exert. (The smoke even finds it’s way inside.) We can’t go outdoors without coughing. But there is rain in the forecast for Tuesday. We’re praying for a deluge! Our hero fire fighters could use the help!

No visibility this morning

It’s days like these that what’s for dinner is on the bottom of the list of priorities. So thank you to everyone that has shared. Your ideas and amazing recipes have kept me interested in preparing meals. Thank you to everyone who comes every week – who supports other bloggers by visiting posts. And it’s another week to share your ideas of …

Peach Rosemary Pork Loin

I love a good peach! I made an amazing marinade with one and looked forward to sharing it with you. This post was supposed to find it’s way here yesterday, but things have been a little crazy here. Oregon is on fire! Towns within seven miles are being evacuated. And the winds!! My backyard is full of tree branches but it’s too smoky to go clean them up. Ahhh…

But now I can catch my breath for a bit so here it is! Those peaches are so beautiful this year! I had so many I was looking for ways to use them. I thought, what about a marinade? Bingo!! A peach marinade!
