Exactly! We got truly hammered by that "gust of wind"! I think today's "Tornado" was a very local thing, right on the coast.

Great sounding dinners, all. The fish and chips looks good, Harry, as usual. I love split pea soup so would love mushy peas, too. Oh and snickerdoodles! My favorite cookie. Haven't made them in a couple of years, now I'll have to very soon!

Just had an early afternoon dinner outside again, as it's a beautiful day. The pic might not look that appetizing but was it ever good. Kind of a spin on red beans and rice, except I used black beans and quinoa. I needed to use up produce so added red and green bell peppers, jalapenos, carrots, onions, and garlic. One of those use-up-what-I-have meals. Seasoned with cumin, chili powder, and fresh cilantro. Served warm. Yummy, will definitely make again.

As soon as I get the clean clothes put away, will be starting the Clam Chowder. Shrek is washing dishes, so I am NOT going to disturb him.

Black beans and rice here! And I'll see if I can trust Frank's suggestion of supposedly edible pepper plant leaves, which I'll steam. They are truly nasty when eaten raw.

I think it is only right and proper that you post a pic of your Clam Chowder when it is done PF! After all the discussions about it, I need as much help as I can get when I make my first ever attempt!
