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 55º 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...
