Necktie Shirt

Surfing the web, I came across some pictures of dresses and shirts made out of old neckties, so I decided to rummage around in our guest closet, where we keep old clothes. Getting out all of my Dads' old ties, I made a blue pattern of ties. After I layed out my design, I started to sow them together. Eventually, I'll have a blue necktie halter-top made completely out of my Dads ties. But for now, I just have a blue, stringed mess. =)

My Pup

This is Tucker, my handsome, white goldendoodle puppy. No matter what, he just wants to go. In a car, in a boat, on plane or even just for a walk around the neighborhood, Tucker's all for it. Of course he's a clumsy furball and trips over his own paws, but he's easy to love. Tuck is still a puppy, about six months old in the picture, but weighs over 50 pounds and growing. That is my fluffy yeti-dog, Tucker.

Today's Treat is.......

Puppy Chow (For people only!)

1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Butter
1 cup Chocolate Chips
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
9 cups Crispix, Cheerios or other dog food looking cereal
1-1/2 cups Powdered Sugar

1. Combine peanut butter, butter and chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl.
2. Microwave for one minute then stir to blend all ingredients thoroughly.
3. Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Stir well.
4. Place the 9 cups of Cereal cereal in a very large bowl.
4. Pour the peanut butter-chocolate mixture over the cereal and toss evenly, making sure all the cereal gets a good covering.
5. Coat with powdered sugar, sprinkling evenly over the cereal and tossing as you sprinkle to cover each piece well.


Note: We ran out of powdered sugar, so we made our own using a hand-held blender.
