Jack has a BIG boo boo.

Our dog Jack caught his two front paws in between the planks on the deck yesterday in a rather freakish accident. One of his toenails was barely hanging on so we had to make a trip to the Rivergate Emergency Pet Clinic. He ended up losing three toenails. Kevin took him today to our vet and they rebandaged his feet and gave him antibodics and anti inflamatory pills. He is almost back to normal today, but yesterday he was so pitiful. Here he is today after getting new bandages. Orange of all colors!!

Bridal Shower recipes

Several of the guests asked for the recipes, so here they are. The link is for the cupcakes, and the chicken salad is below. The berry salad is in another day's post below.,1946,FOOD_9936_32146_PRINT-RECIPE-FULL-PAGE,00.html

Mama's Chicken Salad
4 whole chicken breasts cooked with salt, pepper and celery sticks
Juice of 2 lemons (I used bottled lemon juice- just a couple of tablespoons)
2 small jars of sweet pickle relish ( I only used about 1/4 cup)
2 small cans of crushed pineapple ( I used one can, and next time I will drain it good!)
2 stalks of fresh celery, chopped fine
1 1/2 cups of walnuts or pecans
1 cup of Hellman's mayonnaise (
1 tablespoon of powdered curry (stirred into mayonnaise)

Chop cooled chicken into small pieces and pour lemon juice over all. Add all ingredients, stir until mixed well, and refrigerate for at least 24 hours. Serve on lettuce leaf or with assorted crackers.

Rick & Bubba -Rick & Bubba

I went with my friend Duchess to Barnes & Noble in Brentwood to a book signing by none other than RICK AND BUBBA!! It was so much fun to be standing in line with other Rick & Bubba Fanatics. The guys were so gracious and friendly. We also got a big hug from Don Juan. He is a real cutie. I will post our pictures as soon as Duchess sends them to me.

Cool summer salad

I am making this salad on Saturday to serve at a bridal shower that I am giving for Sarah Shrum. She is my "graduated from high school with my son" friend who is getting married to another DA classmate. This recipe is from Publix.

5 oz spring mix salad blend
1 cup fresh blueberries-rinsed
1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
3 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
1 cup fresh strawberries-rinsed
1/4 cup raspberry vinaigrette

Place salad blend, blueberries, nuts and blue cheese in salad bowl. Cut strawberries into bite-sized pieces and add to salad. Toss with dressing just prior to serving.
