Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! Ours will be much happier if Mom gets over her sickness...she has been sniffling and sneezing for the past couple of days. Don't worry, I have been a most excellent nurse for her as you can see in the picture above. Whenever she needs a nap, I am right there to curl up with her and keep her warm and snug. ;)
Today, she decided that an early St. Patrick's Day dinner might make her feel better. So, she found this Irish
Soda Bread Scone recipe from the Smitten Kitchen blog. If you haven't visited the Smitten Kitchen blog then you should definitely go check it out. It's one of Mom's favorite places...she says there are some tasty recipes over there! To go with the scones she made some potato leek soup...recipe courtesy of Alton Brown over at the Food Network. :)
Of course, I wouldn't know since Mom said NONE of the dishes were dog approved! She said the raisins and the leeks meant these treats were off limits to me. :( How rude...you mean, I have to just settle for a sniff??
That didn't stop me though. I decided to linger a while and wait for Mom to turn her back for a second but that didn't happen either. :(
So, I moved into my usual position at the entrance to the kitchen and carefully watched to see if any stray crumbs found their way to the floor. Unfortunately, I was out of luck today...no crumbs came my way. So, although the warm soup and bread made Mom feel a wee bit better make sure that if your humans cook up any yummy St. Patrick's Day food that it is doggie approved! You'll be much happier than I was this evening. ;) What was my Mom thinking?
