Once again, I have been taken down by sickness. Hence, my absence. I’m sure it went noticed too. I even got a phone call regarding this matter. I was (and still am) dying people! Okay, not DYING. But I can’t breathe – so, close enough. Lucky for you, I still have people to feed and pictures to take even while sick. So here’s your recap.
Day after Valentine’s day – everyone enjoyed their treats from the day before except for me. I just laid around gasping for air.
Day after that, Avery entertained the weak and sick by tormenting the cat. I never miss turn down an opportunity to sit and watch Mux get bugged for once. Normally SHE is the one doing the bugging.
She secretly loves this attention though. If she didn’t, she would have left.
“I don’t have time to look at you, woman. I’ve got a cat to love on.”
“Milly, look at my toes. Look at how cute they are.”
“Cute enough to EAT!” thinks Mux.
She just pulled her foot away and gave me a “look.” Don’t mess with me cat. I’m bigger than you now.
Dylan requested pizza last night and in my weakened condition, I said yes. Pizza is my crack. And my crack will make me feel better, right? So we made pizza. This is the dough recipe I used this time. Good stuff! This pizza is the one Dylan made.
And here is my pizza. My very own spinach, chicken and ricotta pizza.
And in an effort to cram more veggies into my system (in the hopes that they would cure me), I made this salad today. Its Wheatberry Arugula Salad from America’s Test Kitchen Best of 2011 book. And while I’m mentioning it – why the heck do they call it best of 2011? Shouldn’t it be best of 2010? 2011 hasn’t happened yet! Anyway, it was good. Made a TON of salad.
There was no way I could eat all of it! It was very good though.
Well, that’s all for tonight. I would say that I was going to go lay down. But that would be silly. My nose would plug up even more if I did that. If anyone knows how to cure me, PLEASE let me know.
