Podcasts and Dogs

I can't believe it's been so long!
Since my last post, a lot has happened.

We adopted another pup, my grandmother-in-law's long haired weinner dog, Goody:

The black haired dog is Coda, my heart and soul, and Goody is on the left. Goody is very much a special needs dog with his health issues and we are giving him as much love as possible to make his transition easy after having lost his last person and bother-dog. Coda is adjusting alright, though she prefers to be the only child.

For Lent I gave up sugar. It hasn't been as hard as it has been in the past, but testing cooking for upcoming cook books has been hard:
Terry's Lime Shortbread Cookies
Giving up sugar has been difficult because I've been trying to make popcorn that tastes like french toast or cinnamon toast. Creating a recipe without tasting it is no fun!

Other things going on in my life include recording podcasts for the new portion of Jess and my other website, Stumptown Vegans.

Head over here and listen to our first two podcasts!

Nice work giving up sugar. I need to do that in general. I ate 4 cookies last night...

Oscar said...

OK, I think Coda and I would be best friends and maybe even more. She's very beautiful. Please tell her I said so. I'm an only dog and completely understand her wanting to be alone.

Goodie is gorgeous! Oh my gosh.

p.s. Coda is still a looker.

p.p.s. that's a good thing.

Great to see you posting again! Your dogs are both so cute...that is a really sweet photo.

I love that you have done a podcast! I am excited to download them and listen--thanks!

Megan - I wish I ate four cookies last night! I can't wait to enjoy the food I make.

Oscar - thanks! I told her last night that you thought she was beautiful. She was very happy to hear that since she feels a bit insecure because she thinks she has to compete with Goody. You never know, you may enjoy having another dog around, it might make you see the world differently!

Jess - come over!

Courtney - thanks! I hope you enjoy the podcasts!

This may not really be relevant, but I find that if you make toast and add maple syrup, it's just like french toast without the hassle.

REALLY low-brow french toast :)

My mother recently adopted a dog after a death in the family. Good for you!

Hey Webly!

Your doggies are so cute siting there together. I hope the transition goes well.

Hope to see you soon!

You've got some willpower to give up sugar! And those shortbread cookies look fantastic. Cute pups! :)

Melisser; the Urban Housewife said...

Aww, cute pups! I can't wait to get home & listen to the podcasts!

Webly said...

Erica - that's the best and worst breakfast ever! yumm! But it's such a bastardization of a good breakfast it makes me sad!

Thanks Julie. Both dogs are so sweet!

Wheeler's - thanks but I couldn't have done it without acupuncture. That treatment saved many white knuckle nights!

Melisser - Keep enjoying your time away - the podcasts will always be around! I am so jealous of your trip!
