Hey all! Another perfectly gorgeous day today. We ended up spending a large part of the day outside, working in the yard, having lunch and dinner outside, going to a county park … just an absolutely perfect day to be enjoying the sunshine. Eli got introduced to the fun of slides today. He was actually WHINING because he kept wanting to go down again! Silly dog.
When we were in the backyard playing softball this morning, we brought out a water dish for Eli, and no sooner did we walk away, do we spy Nicholas taking a big gulp. Luckily he did it before Eli got his slobber in there, but Eli was definitely confused as to why Nicholas had his face in his dish. I can’t wait to see the two of them when it REALLY gets hot! I thought I was bad…
For dinner tonight, we ended up just doing Chinese take-out. Between spending the better part of the day outside, and the time change, the day ended up getting away from me. For Treats to Work Monday, I tried a new recipe, Cherry Danish, which ended with the entire batch going in the trash. I hate when that happens – a perfectly good waste of ingredients. They can’t all be winners. Luckily I had a back-up plan, and ended up making a batch of Strawberry Bread for the office treats. One of my favorite recipes, I have to be quick because as soon as Nicholas spies the fresh strawberries, he makes a beeline for them. He sure does love his fruit! This recipe is delicious, quick and simple to make and works as well in loaf pans as it does in 8×8 or 9×9 pans (just keep an eye on it and adjust the time appropriately). If you haven’t had a chance to try this recipe yet, I hope you do.
Until tomorrow … off to watch the Next Food Network Star. On with the Weekend Dog Blogging round-up.
