On my way to work, I almost hit a steer…
Side note: Yes, I work in the boonies. I do not live in the boonies, however!
Then, I got home from work today to find out Lily had chewed up a plug-in night light. There was glass and plastic bits all over the foyer, but I assumed all was well as she wagged her tail. Fast forward 45 minutes and one puppy nap later, Lily seemed apathetic towards her dinner (Yeaaah, bulldogs INHALE food at lightening speed. Always.). Though, she eventually ate it. All.
Hubby got home from work and consulted the all-knowing Google.com to come across several “credible sources” instructing owners to feed COTTON BALLS to coat the GI tract in order to safely usher glass and other potentially harmful indigestibles out of the system. Silly me, played his partner in crime.
Okay. Cotton sammie it is. Also OK-ed by all-knowing Google.com.
End result: It all projectiles out both ends. The End.
While Google, husband and I, and cotton balls are a bit of a failure this evening, Lily is doing much better. And after a reassuring emergency call placed to the vet, I can now make light of the situation.
In people news, I made an “original” recipe tonight. We’ll call it…
6 ounces uncooked linguine (whole wheat, if desired)
4 ounces fresh mozzarella balls, halved
1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup pesto or basil puree (found in the refrigerated produce section)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup pine nuts, if desired
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Cook pasta according to directions. Drain. Return pasta to a hot skillet or pot and toss with olive oil, basil or pesto, tomatoes, and mozzarella. Dish up and garnish with pine nuts.
I got this “recipe” idea as a spin off from Joanne’s Olive and Mozzarella Spaghetti. It caught my eye and I’ve been craving pasta ever since!
Question: What’s the last recipe you tried from a foodie blog? I wanna hear about it! Link if you’re a sweetie! 😉
P.S. What’s up with all the onion haters?! I love onions! I was curious about the type of onions people used in cooking; I typically use yellow onions. No reason why, just preference! I agree that red onion is delicious in salads! Mmm mmm! Very interesting responses, though…thanks for answering 🙂
P.P.S. You guys really should try that crock pot lasagna…it reheated beautifully for lunch!
P.P.P.S. Q&A post is next time…email me your nutrition-related question at PreventionRD@gmail.com! I’ve got some GREAT Q&A stuff comin’ up!
