Update: Mouth of the River

Photo taken
Nov 19, 2015
The photo shows the silt and sand flowing from the Brazos River four miles east of the San Bernard. The color is a result of the sediment in the Brazos coming mainly from the Permian “Red Beds” of northwest Texas which gives the water its characteristic red color.

Spice up your Thanksgiving meal with this recipe
Roasted Cranberry Sauce with Jalapeños
Serves: 16, serving size 2 tablespoons
        1 package (12 ounces) fresh cranberries, rinsed 
        1/2 cup sugar
        1 teaspoon olive oil
        1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Orange Extract
        1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Almond Extract
        1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Pumpkin Pie Spice
        4 strips orange peel (4x1-inch strips), thinly sliced lengthwise
        1 small jalapeño pepper, thinly sliced crosswise. For less heat in the cranberry sauce, remove seeds from the jalapeño before slicing.
10 mins prep time / 15 mins cook time
1. Preheat oven to 500°F. Spread cranberries on large baking pan. Sprinkle evenly with sugar, oil, extracts and pumpkin pie spice. Stir gently to mix well. Spread cranberry mixture in even layer on pan. Top with orange peel and jalapeño slices.
2. Roast 12 to 15 minutes or until cranberries pop and release their juices, stirring halfway through cook time. Cool slightly. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
May your Thanksgiving be filled with peace, love and great joy! – Friends of the River San Bernard

River on the Rise Again!
Posted on Oct 31st, 2015 Comments (0)
Did you put all your stuff back on your newly washed-off dock? Too bad cause its raining again and the river is rising again (Sat Oct 31, two feet above normal level and almost two inches of additional rain).
<< Hope trick-or-treaters are wearing waterproof costumes like the one in the photo - an umbrella spider. BOO!
Oh, the blooming, bloody spider went up the spider web,
The blooming, bloody rain came down and washed the spider out,
The blooming, bloody sun came out and dried up all the rain,
And the blooming, bloody spider came up the web again.
