Old News

I started this post before I went on hiatus, so it's a bit out of date, but what the hey, I'll put it up anyway.

It ended up being a really nice day, so we took Simon to the dog park. He has so much fun up there. He knows when we're getting close because he starts crying in the truck. I guess we can't get there fast enough to suit his majesty.

He got to play with a few new friends, and run & run & run. When we got home, he was exhausted and promptly passed out.

He actually is sleeping in this photo. I kid you not.

I had some VWAV seitan in the freezer that I'd pulled out in the morning, but didn't know what to do with it. I scoured the fridge & cupboards and decided on this -

I had some rice noodles & jarred teriyaki sauce, so I sliced the seitan into strips and stir-fried it for a bit with some garlic & spices. I then threw in some green onions, tossed that around for a bit then put the seitan back in the wok along with the noodles and sauce. It took maybe 15 minutes and voila!

I tasted very yum. I had some left over spring rolls too that we also had, but I forgot to take a picture of them.

When Jim's mom was on holiday in
Nova Scotia she went blueberry picking and came home with a flat of berries. She sent a big container over to us and man, they were good. I used some of them to make a blueberry cobbler.

I love cobblers and this one did not disappoint.

It was much improved with the addition of - you guessed it - Cool Whip!

Maybe it's because I'm very hungry this morning -- but those noodles do look very yum.

Did I mention I'm hungry? :)

Simon looks so happy at the park.. I wish J could play at the dog park. She is just too damn dominant for the other dogs to deal with..

Those noodles look great, as does the blueberry cobbler.

Since I can't have dogs, I get vicarious pleasure from watching them play in dog parks. Simon looks like he had a blast with his buds.

The seitan and cobbler are making me salivate.
