What's in there?

I had worked all day, was hungry, wanted something good to eat that wouldn't take too long to prepare.  Noodles anyone?

Evaporated milk, Ricotta cheese, Grated Monterrey and Colby Jack cheeses, egg, corn starch. 

About these apple pies

     Mom wants to clean out the freezer and I had a couple of pie crusts in need of some TLC!

Have you met Tucker?

I was gonna name him Sandy, but finally Mom named him Tucker.  He's Mom's miniature Shelty.  He's cute!  He doesn't leave the front porch (although I'm trying to teach him to do his pee and poo off the porch), and he's learned the pecking order!  When he was just a puppy, I told Mom to start walking him around the yard, so he could learn the property and begin marking his spots.  Did she listen to me?  Of course not!  Now Mom has to hose off the porch!
     He loves me!  I give him treats and feed him with my own canine children (Sophira and Buster Brown).  He doesn't get to sleep in my bed though.  Mom keeps him penned in to his own bed spot, and he's been a good sport about that!  

     As you can tell, he's about the same size as Buster Brown, and they are both males.  That makes them suitable playmates.  They love to play together, although Tucker won't leave the porch even though Buster Brown does!

     Buster Brown and Sophira get jealou…

What's in the meatloaf? Read below, and see!

Oh my!  Looks like someone tested it from the middle!  Yum!
I decided to include ingredients that are good for the dogs too!  So, what did I put in it?  Continue below!

     I should have used a larger pan.  I had to drain off the grease as it was baking at 350 degrees for about an hour and a half.

     Into the mix, I added 
2 cups of cooked instant rice cooled, a handful of grated cheese (colby / mont. jack), three pounds of 80 / 20 ground beef.

     At this point, I had not added the ground beef.  I was tempted to bake it like this.  Here's what's in it:
a bag of baby carrots run through the food processor, a sweet potato peeled and run through the food processor, half a loaf of multi grain bread run through the food processor, a bag of spinach run through the food processor, 4 eggs and 1/2 cup of brown sugar run through the food processor,

Some filtered face pics.... hmmm! More makeup maybe?


Whew! Final grades at last!
