INSTEAD of Tasty Tuesday???? Are you nuts?


Shopping trips do not fulfill TASTY Tuesday.

What insanity is this???

You bet I am resentful!


What??  OHHH Ok.  It's MEATBALL day

That's what she was doing!!

lamb + oats
pork and veggies

Turkey and zucchini and carrots

You need one of these.  I would prefer she used the BIG one, but cheapo sticks to the small one...

Cheap cheap cheap.... Do you hear birds chirping???

       You need a big bowl, clean hands, a baking tray that has been sprayed  and the this is the basic formula from which you can "rif"

    2 slices fresh bread, torn into small cubes or 1/2 cup of flaked oatmeal or 1/2 cup bulgar wheat, or a half a cup of rice or a 1/2 cup of panko. 
    * 1/2 cup buttermilk or 6 tablespoons plain yogurt thinned with 2 tablespoons sweet milk
    * 3/4 pound ground beef chuck (or 1 pound if omitting ground pork below or one pound of turkey or one pound of lamb)
    * 1/4 pound ground pork (to be mixed with ground chuck)
    * 1/4 cup grated Reggiano cheese
    * 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley leaves
    * 1 large egg yolk [we have been using organic turkey eggs, Thank you Mr Myke!!!!]
    * 1 small clove garlic , minced (1 teaspoon)
    * 3/4 teaspoon table salt
    * Ground black pepper
      1/4 cup shredded zucchini, and or carrots, and or ground mixed veggies. [squeeze out the water!]

      Mix it all up, shape the meatballs lightly , the more you compact them, the harder they are.
      Momma, cheats.  When she makes these, she "reserves" some for herself... Now, you can put ithem on a tray and bake them at 350 for about 12-15 minutes, or freeze them on the tray until hard, then transfer them to a ziplock and use them as you need them.  You can poach them, fry them, bake them, and some people have nuked them... They are delish...  Whatever woman... blah blah blah... portion control.

It is TASTYYYYYYY Tuesday after all!

Can I have some mint sauce for my lamb meatballs???? Please?
How about some grainy mustard for my pork meatballs?
Why?  Why only one???

I have to go deal with this travesty.

Blue Monday...The no mischief edition

Having to keep momma "entertained". She has been sad.

RIP Chef Bobby Huber. 

Momma, if only I had thumbs, I would cook for you!

Momma really is as blue as this bench.

I tried getting her interested in something. Something like this...

Recycling old sweaters

Or something like this... from Keep America Beautiful.

Making a personalized dog bed full of your smell, like we like it!

But she is just sad.
 It is called "grief".  I don't like grief. It is the feeling of empty you get in your soul when you lose a friend.  It takes a lot to fill that empty.  
I suppose all I can do is snuggle her, and  let the sad marinate her for a while.

She is kissing me non stop. Yuh, non stop.... I am not saying another woof.
I need to behave... FOR NOW.

Oh this is for MAX.

Hey MAXXXX, look, new toy box!

When you come back you will have to test drive it.

Dancing with JOY: Phoebe goes HOME!!!!!

CELEBRATE!  Precious Phoebe  has her forever family!!!
Seize this moment! Move stuff out of the way!!!  I need to dance with abandon!  JD stop it! Stop calling me Elaine! I dance way better than her!

I dance with my tail!  I shake my bootie.  I have the best bootie in the world, Momma said so and momma does not lie!

Back to Phoebe. Go away JD!

Phoebe waited patiently at White Dog Cottage, and now, she has a wonderful family.

Phoebs, baby. listen...  bring them to the bash.  I want to meet your brother Clancy.  I will introduce you to JD.  Girls have to "network" you know?

I am sure your hoomans have already fallen in love with you, just be judicious in your sprinkling of Bichon magic.  You do want to "make them work for it".  It has only been 7 years for me, but I still make momma work for it. It keeps her on her toes.

Hey Auntie Robin, we need a pic of Phoebe, send one, please.

Until then , DANCEEEEEE with JOY!


JD I am going to make you sorry ...


Badges!? Oh, good! We need stinkin' badges.
