Yesterday was beautiful. We are really in love with Hood River. Blue skies, crisp air, and the scenery never gets old.
Taylor opted to ski while I enjoyed a hike around Hood River. I am a sucker for beautiful views and the hike was amazing. I can’t believe how gorgeous this area is.
When I got home from my hike Taylor was just getting back from the mountain. We both had different ideas for lunch and while he was busy grilling this:
I was busy eating this:
A whole wheat pita toasted with pepper jack cheese, a fried egg, tomato, and crushed garlic. Yummy. I devoured this and then kept Taylor company outside while his meal continued to cook.
Catching some rays while his burger cooked.
Henry kept us company too.
A pepper jack cheese, onion, and bell pepper burger. With a Sessions beer for desert. We are definitely on vacation if beer is involved with lunch!
Later in the afternoon Henry took a nap by the fire, while I got busy cooking dinner.
Dinner was a delicious blend of brown rice, yams, purple onion, and black beans. With a side of roasted brussels sprouts. I sprinkled the rice dish with a little dressing which added a nice kick. 2 tbs lemon juice, 1 tbs honey, a dash of cumin, chili powder, salt, and 1/3 cup olive oil all whisked together.
All this great food makes us really sleepy….
