Injured Pup...

I'm sad to report that our little man Baxter is on the injury list. Three weeks ago he had some x-rays and it was discovered he's got significant arthritis in both knees. Last week, while running and slipping on the ice; he hurt himself. Final diagnosis was a a partially torn ACL. He's not a surgery candidate due to his age (10 yrs) and the bad arthritis. So, its limited activity (yeah right) and pain meds. Fortunately, he doesn't act like he's in horrible pain; but he's limping and holds his leg up at times. Of course, it's hard for us to see him this way!! Needless to say, he's getting a lot of extra attention and lovin' right now. Hopefully he'll be on the mend soon. We'll keep you posted!

Cool Logo!!

Hello everyone! I hope you're enjoying the cold weather as much as we are. Yeah right! I consider myself a winter person and even I'm sick of the cold and especially all the ice. Ugh! Super Bowl Sunday has come and gone and this year's game was another good one. I was pulling for Cardinals but at least the game was exciting. We went to a party at Debbie's and had a bunch of delicious food. I brought along a Reuben dip and it seemed to go over pretty well. Kim liked it so much she said I'll have to bring it to all the get together's from now on! In case you're interested; here's the recipe:

16 oz. Sauerkraut
16 oz. shredded Mozzarella
16 oz. shredded Cheddar
16 oz. corned beef (cubed)
1 cup Mayo
Cocktail size Rye bread

Mix all ingredients (except bread) in mixing bowl and transfer to 9x12 casserole dish. Bake uncovered at 300 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Serve hot and spoon dip onto bread. After cooking; dip can be transferred to a crock pot on low setting if taking to a party or get together. It's that simple! I bring a bottle of 1,000 island salad dressing in case you want add some to the dip once on the bread.

For those of you who know me; its no secret I'm a huge Yankees fan. My Mom likes to joke around and calls me a "Yankee Girl." I found this logo online and its from the old Yankee Girl Tobacco product line. I thought it was kinda neat so I decided to post it. I'm not a smoker but I liked it anyway. C-ya!
