Well, I might have mentioned that we have 2 dogs. They’re akitas and we love them dearly. As caring doggie parents, we try to take good care of them, walk them, hug them and feed them good food.
Believe it or not, our search for just the right kibble for these two has been a labour of love that took years. We’re not newcomers at the dod food store. We’ve had other fussy eaters before but Ocean, our little princess, beats them all.
River, our tubby guy, will eat anything not nailed to the floor. That, itself is an issue, because we don’t want him to be unhealthy.
So, our kibble has to be perfect for both Ocean and River because to have 2 different brands would send us over the edge into insanity. We have searched, asked experts, compared the tiny ingredient writing in the bags and changed our minds a hundred times. Finally, we have one that we agree on and that our doggies like.
So, what do we do? We add things to it.
Hm…yummy for my tummy!!
If you’re wondering where I get this recipe…well, it’s Oh She Glows. Oh and these are not for my doggies! 😀
I value the wisdom of my dogs. In spite of all our technological advances as humans, there are times when I truly wonder who is the species with the greater intellect.
5. Trust your gut (nose).
4. No matter what, I love you.
3. A daily walk is a must.
2. Make time to play and rest.
1. The present moment is everything.
I usually spend Sunday cooking. Eating mostly plant-based requires a little prepping and time that I just simply don’t have during the busy work week. My Day Job is of the type that I can continue to work at home and, unfortunately, that has had to happen the last week and this weekend. There has been barely any time for petting our beloved akitas and certainly no time for fancy cooking.
But today, I had to get busy with the veggies and beans or we’d be eating peanut butter sandwiches all week.
So far…nothing very exciting, right?
And I got this.
Hubby did love it and, in our house, that’s all it takes to declare it a success. But there was more.
I made potato rings that are sooo good. They were right out of the oven and crunchy to boot! And we ate them with home-made refried beans and felt like we were in heaven.
Now for the week, I’ve made this salad:
I got all these recipes from Oh She Glows. It’s my go-to for something that’s healthy yet yummy. Love it!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that it’s still freezing here. In fact, we have freezing rain in our forecast. Lovely, isn’t i? A couple of days ago, the Polar Vortex was among us giving us incredibly frigid temperatures, snow squalls and the promise of frostbite if we dared to venture outside.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that my husband’s patchy, duck-tape ‘fix’ of our dogs’ beds is over and they both now have new beds. This is good news for both doggies and people, since the old dog beds were a complete eye sore.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that Groundhog Day promised us an early spring and I, for one, can’t wait.
A huge thanks to Eclectic Alli for hosting our Coffee Share and to you, my lovely reader, for reading!
Happy Super Bowl Day! So exciting to watch! I’m tickled pink that it’s finally here.
The only sad part is that, after today,..the season is over…
Are you watching the game today? Who are you cheering for? cough…patriots…cough 😀
A colleague shared this with me and I have to share it. Hope it makes someone smile through this snow storm.
