Isn't it cute....

When we were coming from Mansfield the other day, this beagle was racing along.  He paused and I told Roger to stop.  If he had not been in someone's yard I would have wanted to pet him.

*********
It has turned cool again.  I think the high today was 55ºF....it was really chilly to be outside.  And breezy.  I have become used to sitting on the porch a few minutes two or three times a day and I really missed that today.
*************
I made a bell pepper/hamburger dish today.  We always liked stuffed peppers, but I don't really like to eat the pepper.  Or not very much.  So, I started cutting a bell pepper into strips in the bottom of a baking dish.  I fry hamburger and onions together, then drain the grease.  I add the hamburger/onions on top of the bell peppers.  (I used to add a bit of cooked rice and even a bit of cheese, but Roger prefers it just plain hamburger/onions)  You can salt and pepper to taste.

Then I pour tomato juice till it almost covers the hamburger.  Just little bits of it sticks out.  Then bake in a 325º oven for 1½ hours.  We like it with mashed potatoes.  Both my daughters just love it.  And two or three of their friends used to love it, too.  It is just simple and quick...

What a cut doggie. I always liked Beagles until they start howling. haha
We have had nice sunny days high 60s low 70s until this morning and it is gray and overcast feels like it might rain and it is 49--so there ya go.
I like the recipe. I'll run it by Bob and see if he wants it for dinner tonight. Thanks.

Sounds like a very tasty dish, indeed, but I can't eat the bell peppers. Maybe I could just leave them out? Have a great day.

What a great picture of the dog, he posed for you beautifully. Thank you for the delicious sounding recipe. I'm going to try that this week. It's about 55 degrees here also.

Aww- he is a cutie. Your version of stuffed peppers, a la sliced sounds good. I may have to try that without the rice..I bet I could make it hflc for my husband.

What a beautiful beagle! I like the idea of your unstuffed stuffed peppers. Sounds easier than the original version.

The little guy looks well cared for and looks like he wants that pet you wanted to give him. I like anything with hamburger. :)

My neighbour has two beagles, One is sweet and docile, the other extremely energetic. They are fun dogs and my friends have the funniest stories they tell about them!
