starter fuel for odin’s “Kick in The Asgard” hot sauce.

starter fuel for odin's "Kick in The Asgard" hot sauce.

when we worried imminent frost would kill the them we harvested a whole lotta hot peppers from our garden at organic valley. i have no idea what all the varieties are nor their hotness but that’s not going to stop me from whipping up a batch of what i like to call Odin’s Kick in the Asgard hot sauce.

what could possibly go wrong?

recipe: bacon-wrapped jalapeno-stuffed hotdogs. I.

bacon and jalapenos make for a simple and tasty way to spruce up a hotdog ( we love organic prairie’s 100% grass-fed organic hotdogs ).

simply cut a line down the length of the hotdog deep enough to fit several slices of jalapeno. precook some bacon so it’s tender enough to wrap around the hotdog. then secure the bacon with some toothpicks. cook on medium heat on a grill until the hotdog is hot and the bacon is crisp.

day 3711: shooting selfies with the DSLR, thinking about photography.

day 3711: shooting selfies with the DSLR, thinking about photography.

we’re out and about chasing the wind with the kite aerial photography rig and odin grabs the dslr and follows me around shooting away. it didn’t take long before he starts shooting selfies.

“poppi, i never told anyone but i’d really like a camera like this. i think i’d like to take more pictures.”

he takes a ton of photos with his ipod but he thinks the pictures on the DSLR look much better and likes how he can have more control. i think our future will be filled with photowalking adventures!

and in case you’re wondering day 253 was the first time he took a picture with the DSLR and day 1000 he shot his first selfie ( before they were called selfies ).

it’s impossible to convey the beauty of the view from the top of the ridge just a mile from my desk at organic valley. maybe a picture is worth a thousand words.

the view of the classic driftless region geography makes for quite an energizing “out and back” lunch run even on a dull day, all the more so when it’s sunny, green and lush.

do yourself a favor and view large on a big screen.
