No exciting dinner report tonight. I had a hankering for spaghetti with red sauce, so that’s what I ended up making. Simple and easy, starting off with a spinach salad with dried cranberries, candied walnuts, cheese and a maple syrup vinaigrette dressing I make.
Nice relaxing day today … got a lot done, but managed to squeeze in some “me” time as well. Rough night last night, Nicholas has a raging ear infection, so we started the morning off bright and early at the doctor’s office. Poor thing – doc said it was closerthanthis to rupturing his eardrum. He’s doing better now though, thankfully.
OK, promised a new feature, called Saturday Night Sound Bites. I know, you love the cute play on words, yes? Just highlighting snippets from what other food bloggers are talking about RIGHT NOW … picking a few I like at random, giving you a little taste (pun fully intended) of what others have to say; you’ll just have to visit their website for the complete low-down. Kicking us off tonight:
Visit Monster Munching to find out what wrapped rice is all about, and the unusual way you take home your leftovers from the restaurants in her area. Read all about Peanut Butter and Purple Onions’ recent crush here, and how she was let down easy. With a site name like Peanut Butter and Purple Onions, how can you not want to check it out?
Check out what spicy goodness is cooking up over at Sinfully Yours. It’s certainly got MY mouth watering!And the last one tonight comes from Chandra over at Lick the Spoon, putting into words and pictures why I love my kitchen time a little more since Nicholas arrived.
That’s all for tonight, folks. Don’t forget to send in your pup pictures, and tune in tomorrow to see what hits the table for The Neighbors Dine Over Sunday… Elvis will be IN the building. Until then… I’m leaving you with my contribution for Clare’s Weekend Cat Blogging. Callie had just finished doing one of the hardest jobs in the house … giving a 110 lb dog a tongue bath. Luckily when she does this, which is actually quite often, she only does his face and front paws, otherwise she’d be there for days!
