Molly Says Hi!

July 10, 2012

Hey Everyone! I’ve had a long couple days, I had an out-patient procedure yesterday that required that I was sedated and that I didn’t eat all day Sunday… so fun. Since I spent most of the past couple days laying around I didn’t feel to much like throwing together a post. However, Molly really wanted to say hi to you all. About 7 hours of the past two days were spent hanging out at my brother’s with Molly… So she had lots to say.

First, she wanted to show you her squeaky snake:


Then, she wanted to show you her first taste of Jello. She likes to play with her food before eating it… Well, she actually only ate it when I walked towards her and she thought I was going to take it away (which I was going to do… smart dog).


Today, once I could eat again, I discovered the BEST SNACK EVER. Okay, well, it’s pretty good. Take 1 single-serving container plain Greek yogurt, add sweetener (I added vanilla stevia) and then mix in about a cup or so of frozen mixed berries. Um, yea. It was amazing. Feel free to eat with some PB if necessary. Always necessary…

I also managed to make some food for lunches this week. I tried out a recipe I found on Healthy Tipping Point. It’s Caitlin’s Quinoa Crunch Casserole. The only difference was that I used zucchini instead of broccoli, since I had plenty from the farmers market! Although it was awful to have my oven going with the heat outside, the outcome was totally worth it!

Haha so there you go. My exciting couple of days. Back to the grind today!


Do your pets like toys? Molly does, but my friends cat refuses to play with them…


What’s your favorite casserole dish?

    Molly is so so sweet! My dog has that same stuffed toy from the jello video and it’s one of his faves!

    My dog likes to destroy her toys, but she really enjoys the few minutes that takes. Ugh.

      Haha molly is the same, if it’s stuffed with anything she HAS to rip out whatever is inside!

    🙂 Molly is too cute! My dog has more toys than any dog I’m pretty sure. If only I could teach him to put them all back into his basket. He will just take every single toy out until it’s empty. Especially when he wants to plaY!

      definitely try the frozen berries, it’s amazing, especially in hot weather! And I had the casserole for lunch, so good with some marinara sauce on top!

    My dog, Kirby, is obsessed with this hedgehog toy we got her. She will squeak that thing for HOURS. We also have a bat which we hook up to her collar and then call her “Batdog”. She doesn’t like that one as much. 🙂

    I just found your site and love it! My dog LOVES toys. Her favorite part is destroying them, literally ripping them to shreds. We finally wised up and instead of buying actual dog toys (way too expensive for 2 hours worth of play!) and go to the Salvation Army and get old stuffed animals! We don’t feel too bad when she has fun ripping up a 50 cent stuffed whatever.

    Such a CUTE dog!!

    That casserole sounds good and intriguing. And BOY do I love that snack. It’s SO yummy!!Bring on the fresh and frozen berries 🙂

    Oh my gosh! That casserole looks awesome!!

    I’ve been wanting to buy berries in bulk and freeze them! That snack sounds like the perfect reason to!

    Hope you’re feeling better! You are in my thoughts and prayers. 🙂

    I’m glad to hear you’re on the mend, Katie! If you have to be cooped up for a few days, who better to be by your side than Molly?! She’s adorable! I have a yellow lab who does the same thing with her food–whenever I give her a treat, she’ll nudge it around on the floor until her possession is threatened. Haha. Oh, dogs! 😉

    The Greek yogurt/berry mess looks amazing! ❤

    hope you are recovering well from your procedure! i made that casserole but couldn’t eat it because i made it way way too spicy 😦 it was so disappointing, but i may just try it again when i get some eggs from my parents chickens.

    • July 11, 2012 5:19 pm

      Your parents have chickens?! How cool!!! And I didnt add the hot sauce to mine since I didn’t have any, not spicy at all!

      • July 11, 2012 7:58 pm

        yeah, i love being able to get farm fresh organic eggs where i know exactly where they come from! they also have a garden, so i save money on fresh produce during season too 🙂

    My fav casserole would probably be my mom’s broccoli rice casserole. It’s certainly not the healthiest, but it’s a Thanksgiving staple and I’m sticking to it!

      My mom has a broccoli rice casserole! We call it Browns Rice. No idea why since she uses white rice, broccoli, and some kind of condensed Campbell’s soup…
