Well people, we’re back from our morning workout and the big guy’s pouring us some coffee before he gets started on cookin’ breakfast. Isn’t that why you work out, so’s you can eat sausage, eggs, and English muffins for breakfast?
Yesterday went by in a flash again – that’s my only complaint about being at the beach – the days go by so darn fast. Can’t believe it’s been a week already since we left Tucson and I have to admit the adventures on our drive up here seem like they happened in another lifetime.
our stinging rejection at Waldport Public Library, we went to Yachats only to
find the library closed until noon. We used their WiFi access anyway from the
parking lot, then went for a drive and a long walk on Ona Beach. Sorry we
forgot the darn camera, but we’ll go back there soon so we can take pics for
ya’. Ona Beach is one of the many majestic and very quiet beaches found up and
down the Oregon coast. Immaculately clean and free from much humanity, you can
walk miles without seeing another soul. Max had a blast off leash until we
spotted a resident Bald Eagle on a large tree up on the cliffs – had to reel
the little guy in before he was Eagle fodder.
Since we had a really late lunch of leftover Mulligatawny Soup and Peach/Strawberry Pie, dinner last night was of the munchie kind. I know there’s not much new about the sausage/cheese balls made from Bisquick and Jimmy Dean, but I had to create something so I whipped up a batch and added some chopped onion, jalapeno peppers and a can of green chiles. Believe you me, it sure made a difference in the flavor profile. Give ‘em a try and let me know what ya think, OK?
J’Bug’s Chile Cheese Sausage Balls
1 pound bulk sausage, uncooked
1 cup Bisquick mix
2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 large Jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
1 6 ounce can chopped green chiles
2 cloves garlic, minced
Mix together all ingredients and form into 1 inch balls. Baked on ungreased baking sheet in 375 oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with mustard on the side. Makes 24.
Today’s agenda – we’re going to a big party. There’s a clam bake at Nye Beach in Newport and we’re heading there to enjoy some good grub and pre July 4th festivities. We’ll take some pictures, show off our pooch (it's a dog friendly event) and generally assimilate ourselves into the beach culture. TTFN
