Bacon Butty

pronounced bacon "bought-y"in Onslow speak, is a simple Bacon sandwich. I first heard about it watching "Keeping Up Appearances", a britcom. Hyacinth's slovenly brother-in-law Onslow and her sister, Daisy, were eating Bacon Butty's in one episode. You simply fry up a few slices, put on slightly toasted bread or a crusty bread or roll, top with catsup or "brown sauce" (which I have yet to find- I am thinking it is similar to steak or BBQ sauce) and there you have it- a sandwich which Onslow would utter Oh Nice to!

Seahawk Duct Tape Bow!!!

I needed a bow for one of the baskets for our upcoming Silent Auction, one that themed the basket to the contents, but couldn't find what I wanted. So I turned to my collection of Duct Tape- picked out the Seahawks tape and put it together like so...

Cut or tear an 8" strip. Place it face down. Take a plain piece of Duct Tape match it up to your nice piece of tape and place sticky side down to your nice tape, making a two sided duct tape strip. Make 2 or 3 more strips. THen make two strips at about 7" long. Place them together in an X formation and attache them to the first. Then take a Piece about 4" long and make a loop for the center. Attach it to the center of the bow. You can use these directions from Jenny at How about for more detailed instructions. I found using duct tape requires fewer loops.

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!
