- Week's Best
I saw these birds on the top of ALDI after we had finished loading our groceries into the van. I waited for a few minutes, camera ready, to capture them in mid-air again as they were when I first spotted them. (My guess is that they were being territorial and each trying to run the other bird off. There was a lot of aggressive-looking hopping and charging going on.)
The weather looked like it was getting a little wild on Wednesday. There was only one huge clap of thunder and that was pretty much it, although the kids spotted what they thought was a little hail. Whatever it was, it was short-lived.
Look! There's some nature on my retro dryer!

I tried great white northern beans in a chili recipe this week. I am allergic to most kinds of beans, and have been trying to gather the nerve to try these beans to see if I reacted.
Fortunately, I didn't notice a reaction, so now I have two types of beans I know I can eat (this, and baked beans). Woo hoo!
Click on this link to see the recipe I modified from AllRecipes.com. My modifications: I make this completely on the stove top rather than crock pot (mostly due to lack of planning, but also because I already have used the skillet so why not finish it there?). I use 1 can of diced tomatoes rather than the tomato soup, I omit the red pepper flakes or else my kids would not/could not eat this, and I only use 1 can of beans. However, now that I know I can eat the great white northern beans, I may use 2 cans next time.
