Weekend Dog Blogging #19

by Cate on January 30, 2006

I had a whole menu planned for tonight’s The Neighbor Dines Over Sunday to celebrate The Neighbor’s birthday. I ended up scrapping half of the menu (of course, after I bought all the groceries) and did something different. The Neighbors have never had Indian food, and we had promised to introduce them to some of our favorites, so we ended up doing Indian take-out for the main part of the meal. I made some Bleu Cheese Chips as a munchie, and Fruit Pizza (with a birthday candle) for dessert.

As a side, I ended up making our Elvis Paninis, one of The Neighbor’s favorites, paninis with peanut butter, bananas and honey. Delicious! We kicked off the meal with Pina Coladas, because one week from today, we’ll all be enjoying pina coladas somewhere else, so we’re in official countdown mode. And nope, I’m not telling you where we’re off to, because I’m going to make it into a game, kind of like my take on Where in the World is Sweetnicks?! The Pina Coladas were a new recipe, from Martha Stewart herself. I’ll be writing about it as my first entry to Very Good Things. As soon as it’s up there, I’ll give you a heads up.

For Treats to the Office Monday, I made Wacky Cake. It made a recent appearance in a cooking magazine, but was apparently pretty popular in the 70s – first I’ve heard of it. Packed it off for The Neighbor to take into the office tomorrow, so she’ll have to make sure to report back on the verdict.

Before we kick off the 19th edition of Weekend Dog Blogging, first my contribution to Weekend Cat Blogging. See Clare at Eat Stuff for more cute kitties:

Ok, onto Weekend Dog Blogging.

All three pups in the same shot this week, from Dispensing Happiness, enjoying some great weather.

I love the upclose shots, and this one from Urban Agrarian is no exception:

Ditters from A Little of Everything comes back to WDB after a brief hiatus with a festive Santa pic.

Chef Mark and Stiva from A ReMARKable Palate are back with us again too. Chef Mark is becoming quite famous in his own right, with recent write-ups in The New York Times and Bon Appetit – not too shabby!

In the “the future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades category,” we have Emma from Up a Creek without a PatL:

A sunbathing Sadie from The Moveable Feast Food Blog:

Huggy from The Poor Cracklins enjoying a well-deserved treat:

Ziggy from Soul Fusion Kitchen caught mid-snooze:

Another snoozer checks in, with Sammy from Taste Everything Once dropping by:

It would be hard to resist those eyes from Ragus Pug:

A newcomer to WDB, Rocky from Mona’s Apple joins the gang:

Lulu from Why Travel to France sharing in a little cat admiration (look closely, Lulu’s peeking around the right corner):

Robin from Farmgirl Fare, striking a pensive pose:

Biscuit Pup from You Gonna Eat All That?, hanging out the Do Not Disturb sign:

And last, but not least, our own contribution:

All for tonight. It’s a busy week, so make sure to stay tuned. Until tomorrow…

Be Sociable, Share!

You are amazing. How do you find time to copy all those photos? When do you sleep?

Hi – where can I find your recipe for Blue Cheese Chips? I don’t see it under “appetizers”. I’ve been wanting it since the last time you wrote about it! Thanks!

Kalyn – I’d love to say I’m a pro at time management, but what I need is a 30 hour day!

Anon – I’ll put the directions in tonight’s post. :) Super simple.

Karen – Lulu was definitely one of my favorites this week too!
