This and That

Tank passed his interview!  It was SO FUNNY.  The lady said Tank interacted with the trainer in the room better than with the other pups.  We told her it was because he thought he was a human.  She said he did very well, as Jack and I could see from the "Camper Cam" in the lobby.  Jack is dropping him off Friday around 10am, anyone who is bored, feel free to check-in on Tank playing!  He will probably be on camera 3 or camera 6.  They told us how to download this onto Jack's phone so we will be watching Velcro Dog play all the way down on our drive to Austin.  Camper Cam link:
I am so exicted for Austin by the way!  I have only been once and it was only for the night, so I am looking forward to exploring the city with some fun people.  Jessica and Russell have a couples shower on Saturday night.  Should be a great trip!  See the fun group below:

A meal to make this weekend (kind of a favorite in our house):

Chicken Stir Fry

1/2 Yellow Onion
1 Red Bell Pepper
Fresh Broccoli
Carrot Sticks
Almonds (yumm)
Soy Sauce
Olive Oil
Chicken (or shrimp, or steak OR vegetarian)
Fat Free Catalina
Crushed Red Pepper

You can basically put in any veggies you would like.  Slice your veggies and chicken.  Heat up stir fry pan with a dash of olive oil and toss in your chicken.  Cook until almost done and add a few shakes of red pepper.  Next give it a few shakes of soy sauce.  Add your almonds.  Then I add my onions, bell pepper, carrot sticks and let them cook.  After a few minutes I add my fresh broccoli (I don't want it to overcook and get soggy).  Add about 1/3 to 1/2 bottle of Catalina Fat Free dressing.  The spicey red pepper and the sweet catalina give it a good combination!  Remember, continue stirring because you are cooking this on a pretty high heat!

Jack and I use Success Boil-in-a-bag brown rice and place the stir fry mixture on top of the rice!  It's amazing!  A dinner staple in our house!

Shout out to my niece, Brooxie.  She got a hair cut today and is looking mighty fab!  She also turns 2 at the end of the month, which is pretty exciting!

Happy Wednesday!
