I just talked to his foster dad, and Henry is currently 13 weeks old and a whopping 35 lbs! He is truly is gonna be a horse! He'll probably weigh about 100 lbs when he is full grown. We'll have to get Betty Rascal a saddle. :)
Henry's foster dad told me the sweetest thing. He said Henry is about as perfect as a dog can be, and that his wife is very sad that Henry [aka Bear] had to leave. They already have three dogs, but were just about ready to make room for a 4th if our adopting Henry didn't work out! I made sure to thank them for their kindness to Henry Bear, and promised to send lots of pictures. He told me that Henry is very smart, and to watch out...apparently, he had figured out how to get out of his crate during the day. Ruh-roh...hope we don't have a Marley on our hands! :)
I go pick him up tonight while the Knight is at work. I can't wait to have a few greedy moments with our new puppy before his daddy gets home!
Puppy breath, tail wags, and chewed up shoes...here I come!

Ugh. I love this city! Yesterday the Knight and I visited the navy pier, rode the ferris wheel, took an architectural boat tour, went to the art institute, and soaked up the sun at buckingham fountain and the silver bean. We have a wonderful late breakfast at Moni's cafe, had hummus, pitas and veggies at Artisan, and dined late night at the fabulous Rosebuds on Rush. Very delish Italian.
Right now, we are on our way to the Museum of Science and Industry, then to the aquarium, and finally to Wrigley fiel. We won't get to wrigley in time to get tickets, but we'll have plenty of time to peep the game at a nearby pub.
The weather is beautiful and I never want to leave!

The Knight and I are in Chicago celebrating our 5th anniversary. We got here around ten this morning. We have strolled up and down the magnificent mile, ate lunch at Giordanos, and visited the Hancock Tower. Tomorrow, we have a full day of touristy fun. Did I mention I love Chicago?

*I'm not thrilled with the idea of getting him neutered so young, but these rescue place won't release him until he's fixed.

No Mancandy Monday today. I just can't muster up the grin and humor today.

Hi everyone! I am always looking for new recipes, and I think ones passed down by friends and family always seem to taste better! :) Today, I would like to share one of my favorites. It is fairly cheap, SO EASY, and super quick. Oh yeah, it is delicious, too.
The Pepper and Pear Salad is something that I bring to almost every summer BBQ. It goes great with tofu, chicken, ribs, and burgers, and is a pretty addition to the table (plus, its not too hard on the figure, either!).
Add 1/2 - 3/4 cup rice vinegar (can find this in the ethnic food aisle), salt and pepper to taste, and toss.
