In an update I’m sure everyone was waiting for with bated breath, shark-dog finally got his walk. Of course given that it happened more than 30 minutes ago, he has totally forgotten and is back to acting like he’s the most put-upon and neglected creature the world has ever seen. He whined at me for 20 minutes straight yesterday, then chewed his food bowl apart in protest against the many wrongs done to him.
On the walk we discovered this sidewalk which zigs, but does not zag,
As well as a two-tone tree.
The first few times we walked shark-dog past this statue he was uncertain if it was a dog and approached it hesitantly, but he’s now wise to the fact that it’s not living. Jury’s out on whether he’s also realized it represents a different species.
One of the dilemnas I most like getting faced with is what the heck to do with spare pie dough. I have weirdly sized pie pans, so I make a batch and a half to two batches of dough, and this usually leads to extra. I view this as an opportunity to do some recipe testing and fridge cleaning. That last little bit of blue cheese? In it goes. A lone half portabello mushroom? Don’t mind if I do. Pears, apples, or any other fruit that doesn’t sound nasty (I’m shooting side eye at you, bananas) are also fair game.
In this vein, my quiche efforts led to extra dough, and combined with BS’s temporary insanity when faced with 99 cent raspberries at the store last week, this is where we ended up:
RASPBERRY ROLLS (a way to use up leftover pie dough)
