The Adorable Monster Wishes You Happy Friday!
Don't you think we need a break from cooking? I know I do! Last night, I made rack of lamb with a balsamic honey reduction served over ginger-spiced brown rice with apples, walnuts and spinach! And tonight, I'm whipping up vegetarian enchiladas with my famous homemade enchilada sauce. I promise to share both recipes soon, but in the meantime, how about a fun Friday diversion to bring a smile to your face?
For all your Adorable Monster fans out there, here are some new photos of our infuriating, precious, annoying, lovable mini goldendoodle! He looks like the love child of a teddy bear and a snow beast. He's just over a year old now! I can't believe how fast the time has flown by. It seems like just last week he was crawling into the laundry pile to steal my socks. Oh, no, wait, that was last week, because he's still a little sock thief!
Other Monster updates?
He's finally learned to roll over for a treat, but he won't for the love of god shake my hand! It's driving me nuts! Every time I grab his paw to get him to shake, he cocks his head and stares at me like I'm crazy. It's a complete inter-species communication breakdown. He still loves his frisbee, the dog park, and his new favorite hobby is burying his bones in our sofas, which makes complete sense given that the sofa is the natural habitat of the mini goldendoodle. He's a very social little guy, and over Thanksgiving, made best friends with a 7 month old, little white furry puppy named Rooney.
Basically, what I'm trying to say is that he's the best dog in the whole world. No, scratch that, the universe! Except for the sock filching thing. But we're working on that (or maybe he's working on us!). And yes, I'm aware that I'm obsessed with my dog, thank you very much. I mean, he is my sous chef, after all!
