Elk Head

I was just out on the back patio with the dogs.   It’s 7 PM and it’s 48 degrees out, hard to tell it is January around here.   It will change soon enough. I believe they are calling for snow next week.

We went to the auction house this morning and did a walk through.  Didn’t see anything that I needed, did see some older style snowshoes but I don’t need them.  They did sell of two large mounted Elk heads.  They were really nice, but not for me.  Each of the heads went for $125.00 which I thought was pretty cheap.  But they are an acquired look and you would need a big place to mount them.

Then we headed over to visit a friend of mine who works at Pikes Peak Auto.   They buy/sell older classic cars and parts, .   We visited for bit and then Candy and I went and walked through the junkyard to see what we could find.

Grabbed some lunch, hit the grocery store and then headed home.   We unloaded the groceries and decided to head out and did a quick 2/mile loop.  Once again the weather was awesome.   It was so nice that I hooked up the sprinkler and got some water on the back yard.

Tonight for dinner I made seafood linguini, roasted potatoes and we had bacon wrapped jalapeño’s stuffed with cream cheese.   Sort of an odd combination but oh boy was it good.

Bacon wrapped Jalapeño’s stuffed with cream cheese.   

6 Jalapeño’s cut in half and seeded
6 slices of bacon
Cream Cheese
12 toothpicks

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut your 6 bacon strips in half to give you 12 pieces.  Fill jalapeño with cream cheese then wrap with bacon and use toothpick to secure.  Place on cookie sheet.  Bake for 15 minutes then turn and bake for another 5 minutes.

To spice it up,  add jalapeno seeds into cream cheese.

Happy Hiking
