I was at work the other night, and it was lunch time ... I meandered over to the refigerator... Bagels, Pizza sauce, a hunk of summer sausage... so I made Bagel Pizzas

1 Bagel- split
two tablespoons pizza sauce
about 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese
Meat- a small amount of prosciutto or pepperoni- in this case I used summer sausage- whatever your heart desires!

Layer the bagels with the sauce, cheese, meat. Heat in toaster oven at 450 degrees for 5-6 minutes. Eat!

Romeo turns 9!!!

Romeo enjoying Morril Off Leash Dog Park in Kent, Wa

Forgot too mention that my big old fluffy dod Romeo turned 9 on the 24th. He had a good day at Morill Meadows Off leash Dog Park in Kent, WA, the weekend before his birthday. Interesting dog park, about the same size as Lakeview, where our off leash park in Burien is supposed to go, with some good, inexpensive amenities that also are recycled.

Nice reuse for old tires
Super simple jumping gates made from Galvanized Elbows and 18" nipples
An example of a climbing apparatus for agility
And another!

 Romeo had a great day, the boys got to see a great park and we had some lunch, courtesy of a local eatery! I enjoy days like this one!

Does anyone else have unusual planters in their gardens? Please Comment!

Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

Drool. I came across these from a Bacon Calendar I got for Christmas- These are super easy to make.

Bacon Cinnamon Rolls:
1 tube of Cinnamon rolls
8 slices of bacon

Separate and unroll one tube of cinnamon rolls, unrolling each cinnamon roll. Slightly precook bacon in the Microwave for 1-2 minutes (if you like your bacon well done.

 Lay one slice of bacon on top of each cinnamon roll and roll it back up pressing the dough together as needed. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until rolls are browned and bacon is completely cooked. Spread frosting from the cinnamon rolls package on top of rolls while still hot.

I went a bit crazy and thought, what if I use Nutella instead of the frosting... So.... I did!!! Even more wonderful!!!
