    Faye- she's the one on the right... we fell in love at first sight :-)

    Faye - When I was in college, cold pizza with a Coke was a great breakfast. It helped the hangover and kept me awake during my 8:00 class.

    RFB - I love the name Violet! She is so precious! O's going to love her. Is she the one on the right in the picture? And your sauce does sound wonderful. :-)

    ascherer - Very true on the college student/pizza connection! My oldest likes to take the pizza for lunch so I wrapped up a couple pieces for her to take to school tomorrow.

    Faye - there is nothing wrong with eating pizza more than once a week. Just ask a college student. :-) Actually a pizza sounds good. I may have to have some this week.

    The chili was really good. I cooked it for about 4 hours then refrigerated it overnight then cooked it for about 5 hours today.

    Faye- nothing wrong with that... I could eat pizza every single day lol! And awesome on your walk! I put up a pic on my instagram... she's 4-1/2 weeks old :-) We've decided on Violet for her name.

    Also, a review on my Crock Pot Bolognese Sauce. OMGoodness, what a difference it makes to throw some ingredients in a crock pot. let it cook all day, and then top it on some simple spaghetti. Best past ever... and another thing I could eat every day :-)

    Tonight we had homemade creamy pizza using a Mama Mary's crust, cream sauce, mushrooms, mozzarella, parmesan, onions and garlic. Side of pears. For the record, there is nothing wrong with having pizza twice in one week if it's homemade, right??? lol I was all worn out after a non-stop day. But I did get to take a walk in this beautiful weather!

    Jdouglas - How did the prime rib turn out?

    RFB - congrats on the new pup. Can't wait to see photos!

    Raesmom - how was the shrimp?

    LOSLTP- that's awesome. They are super smart, and so loving! Thanks!

    jdouglas- we picked our pup today! We can't bring her home for 3 weeks or so (she's only 5-1/2 weeks), but she is SOOOO cute!

    RFB - awww I had a boxer when I was 3 or 4 years old . He was a good puppy - very smart.

    RFB - you know you have to somehow post pics somewhere if you get a puppy!!

    LOSLTP- the same breeder from our Boxer just had their final litter. So, of course we couldn't resist :-) We have dibs on a girl... can't wait to meet her today!
