Summer officially ended September 23, 2011 this year. Where did the dog days of summer go?! I enjoyed the refreshing rains we’ve had, and the moments we got to spend together as a family. We managed to get many projects squared away before fall arrived, and yet still have many more to accomplish before snow flies.
While we take a time out to get ready for all the excitement that fall has in store for us (fund raisers, rodeos, fairs, parades, and other local events), I wanted to share some of the awe inspiring scenery I was able to share with my family this summer.
I love cooking, baking and making things with my own two hands. Animal treats are of no exception. I was going through the store one day, and came across these cute little “doggie bone” cookie cutters. They come in small, medium, and large and a variety of colors. I of course, took one of each color, and size. (Don’t ask me which store, I’ve been making them for 25 years, and that’s too long ago to remember.)
Now this winter was a long one, and cabin fever was setting in pretty good. I could curl up with a good book (or my laptop lol) and be good to go. But kids are a different matter. So we took to task making these irresistible treats. I’ve never seen dogs go crazy over a treat, but these will surely make them stand on their heads!
As promised, this week is about continuing those great memories through the close of summer. Now my hubby loves marinades, so I’m guessing that other people do too.
Here’s a great marinade. And honestly! It just doesn’t get any easier than this one right here.
Well it’s that time of year again. School is gearing up for most of the kids, and summer is coming to an end. But there’s no need to put away the grill just yet! There’s still plenty of warm weather, and plenty of family gatherings to share before summer comes to a close.
Here’s is a great recipe that has been around the table at our house a couple thousand times. I’d like to share it with you, in the spirit of keeping those summer memories coming on strong.
