Pouty Puppy and Shrimp ‘n Grits

by sara on April 6, 2011

Riley is typically the bone hoarder and will prance around Enzo like Sammy after breaking up with Ronnie.  Yesterday, however, the tables turned.  Enzo saw the opportunity to steal Riley’s bone and went for it.  Then he got up on the Ottoman Empire and wasn’t sure what to do with his new treasure.

It must have passed the sniff test because he bit in.

Then he was just showing off.

And ooooh Riley was mad.

While Enzo celebrated and Riley pouted, I made dinner.  To start, a simple salad of iceberg lettuce, carrots, onion and goat cheese.

For the main course I threw together the simplest shrimp ‘n grits ever.  In one pot I threw together some instant grits.  In a cast iron skillet I cooked some turkey bacon, removed it, then threw some garlic and pre-cooked shrimp in there to heat up.  I combined all of that in a bowl with some sharp cheddar and voila!  It was healthy because I used turkey bacon instead of real bacon.  At least that’s what I would tell my probation officer if I was on food probation.

Do you want to hear the saddest story ever?  My fiance had never had an artichoke until last night.  The end.

Seeing that he was a newbie, I offered three dipping sauces for the artichoke leaves: wasabi aioli, lemon juice and melted butter.  He liked the mayo the best.

We ate al fresco because we like to live on the edge.  Oh and we enjoy spying on our neighbors.

Dessert was a double secret surprise!  Jason’s co-worker gave everyone bags of Easter candy so he brought some home to share.  He actually told me I looked ridiculously thin and that he was worried that I would waste away to nothing so I should eat the whole bag.  He didn’t say any of that but in my head I was thinking it.  Riley tried to get her paws on some but I threatened her with the Pedi Paws and she backed away.
