These were very sweet--I think next time I'd omit to chocolate chips because they are plenty sweet as is. They are chewy in the middle and crispy on the outside. This cookie is definitely a repeater.
Dinner was a salad. Mixed greens, toasted pecans, red bell pepper, red onion, cucumber, avocado slices, bosc pear, and a piece of crumbled bacon all topped by a Gorgonzola vinaigrette that I whipped together loosely based on this recipe from Bobby Flay. It was very tasty and I am stuffed.
For the vinaigrette, I only used about 1/4 t. of bacon drippings, heated the white wine vinegar in the pan I cooked the bacon in, added olive oil, garlic, oregano, S&P, and heated. I then whisked in Gorgonzola cheese. This was very good--the Gorgonzola didn't overpower but complimented the flavors of the vegetables nicely.
For this weekend's Dog Blog, here's a flashback to my pups' younger days. Check out Sweetnicks Sunday night for all of the other cute pups out in blog land.
This is Harley at about 10 weeks. Look at those feet! We knew he was destined to be a big boy, but we had no idea...
And here's Peanut at about 8 weeks. She was still tiny, but had grown some from the 7 lbs. she was when I brought her home.
Togetherness. Actually, Peanut was lucky in her younger days that Harley didn't bite her head off. He could've on many occasions--I even have a picture where they are playing and her head is in his mouth!
