Elk Chili and the UFO





I love elk chili...
but it's not very interesting to post about a pot of anything simmering over a campfire. So I'm throwing in some UFO pics taken at the lake. lol

I had some nice ground elk burger, added onions and let the meat brown over the fire...








Did a little fishing while the meat cooked...


added peppers, chili powder, garlic, tomatoes and seasonings


Gave the chili a stir every so often..






Chili smells SO good while cooking!



Heated a few tortillas and called er good.




I slathered a hot tortilla with butter, sprinkled my elk chili with scallions and smoked cheese..





It might not have been interesting to watch the pot simmer, but the chili was delicious! 



On to the UFO. :)
There was an interesting light shining in the western sky... It looked like a flashlight shining down. This was too early for stars and the thing was not moving.



I could see a black spot on one side of the light so I assumed it was a weather balloon..



when I got home, I enlarged the picture to check out the black spot...




the light changed a bit...



and then, the strangest thing... it looked like it had a black bar or black dots running through it horizontally...



What ever it was, it was interesting to watch. It didn't show up again, just that one night.

I felt like a frog, staring at a flashlight, getting ready to be picked up by the scruff of my neck. lol


SO glad the election is over. Life goes on..
Hope everyone is having a great week, thanks for stopping by!

Prolly someone's drone trying to spy out your secrets...

cowgirl said...

Yes Rich, this camp trip was to Ft Supply. It's a small lake but sometimes the fishin' is good. :)

cowgirl said...

lol Could be right Kenneth! I've been experimenting with making my own fish bait, using camp meal leftovers. So far it's not working.
If I find the right combo, I'll be rich. lol
Thanks for stopping by!

Plainly, a garbage can lid. Or an amoeba.

Oh, and where *I* was raised, frogs did NOT come equipped with scruffs.

Great food, fishing by the lake and UFO's! Who's got it better than you, Cowchick?

cowgirl said...

lol Joe!!
Thanks for the laugh. Guess frogs don't even have necks. :)
I had the strange feeling I'd be picked up and stuffed into a gunny sack before the night was over.
Hope you're having a great week!

Sap!! Did you check out that amazing moon last night? Wish I could have been camping but it looked mighty fine from the front yard.
Hope you're having a great week too.. Thanks!! :)

It was a bit cloudy here in the northeast Cowchick, but I could see it when I let the dog out at 11:30. Bright enough to cheers to a friend in Okie country!

cowgirl said...

"Cheers" back atcha Friend! :)
