Cute Puppies & Pretty Food- it's What I Ate Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

We are hoping for a nice, boring hump day around here because Tuesday was a little too exciting for us.

Mandy and I left the house around 9:00 AM for swim team practice.  When we came back at 11:00, Ruger met us at the door and I thought he was carrying something in his mouth. (I actually thought it was a golf ball despite the fact that no one in this house golfs.  Yes, that's how my brain works)


My poor little guy's lip was all puffy.
A trip to the vet confirmed my suspicions that he had been bitten or stung by something in the morning.  He got a shot of cortisone and he's on Benadryl for a couple of days.  He's sleeping soundly now and looking much more like his handsome self.

While we were waiting, Mandy looked down the hall and saw these guys.


It was so stinking cute.

It's been quite awhile since we did any What I Ate Wednesday action around here.  But now summer is here with it's pretty food so let's do this!
My favorite salad only happens during the summer months at Panera Bread.  The Strawberry Poppyseed Salad is to die for.
So, imagine my happiness when I found the Poppyseed dressing at Target!

By the way, that "fat free- low cal" blah, blah, blah means nothing to me.  I'm not scared of fat in my diet.  In fact, I generally avoid labels like this.  But I buy this dressing for one reason and one reason only... Because it's delicious! That is all.

I used my OXO Good Grips Salad Chopper and Bowl  to chop up some Romaine lettuce, strawberries, blueberries & mandarin oranges.


Post-chopping they look like this...


Do you see what I mean about pretty summer food?
The poppyseed dressing completed my summer salad happiness.

While I was chopping, these were doing their thing out on the grill...


One of those hot dogs was for Ruger.  
He deserved a little treat after the morning he had.

Do you have a favorite dish that's 
only available in the summer?

Do you grill food just for your dog?
(not sorry by the way)
