Saturday, September 18th

I had to walk to the Post Office by myself this morning as Greg is still not up to much exercise. After that built up my appetite, I decided to cook breakfast. I made grits, biscuits, and eggs with summer sausage (made from Dall sheep). The sausage was given to us by my friend at school, Terry. Her husband had killed a Dall sheep on a recent hunting trip and had the meat processed. The sausage was quite good and really spiced up the meal. Thanks Terry and Chris.

Later, we headed out to SBFs Mindy and Paul's home to spend the night. We picked raspberries from the patch in their backyard. Greg tried to befriend a beautiful jaybird. The stellar jaybird is large with beautiful coloring- its shape is close to the blue jay in Tennessee. However, the coloring is much different. We never got the exact picture we wanted because he couldn't quite stay still. The bird did come and get a peanut from Paul's hand. Mindy made a delightful dinner featuring Salmon Stacks. She created this after she had eaten something similar in a local restaurant. Salmon is served atop a crispy won ton with avocado, sour cream, cheese, and some other secret ingredients. Yum. After dinner, we visited for awhile and then turned in early to be rested for tomorrow's fishing trip.
