ahhhhhh... friday! but i'm on call.....

A little after work treat! I went in the store to get some steaks and saw these little pecan tarts.. and they saw me too! then they said "we want to go to her house!!" and they jumped right into my cart! now me, being a nice person and all.. how could i let those nice little tartlets down? so I gave in and let them come home with me. Then, once we got here.. we had a little tea party.. just the little tartlets and I... we had such a lovely time!

Oh well.. yay! its friday.. but .. I am on call this weekend through next friday. so everyone pray and keep your fingers crossed for a very managable weekend. After all its mothers day weekend. Not only that, but theres a doll show in rochester tomorrow. I've been telling myself all week that I was going to skip it, but now I'm thinking I need to go. I want to find a cute little vintage doll dress for a sock monkey to wear. Im feeling the need to make another one!

Other then that I really have no plans.. I try not to plan anything for when I'm on call.

We're cooking steaks and these veggies on the grill tonight. I ordered a veggie grilling basket from pampered chef and just got it.. so we're going to try it out , the problem is , I cut up at least twice as much as what is going to fit in the basket! Doesnt it look good.. mushroom caps, grape tomatos, zuchinni, yellow squash, onions, and orange and red peppers. Here they are soaking in red pepper italian dressing! yummy!

I'll be finishing up a project tonight and will be sure to show you pictures tomorrow! You saw the start of the first part last post.. that part is finished.. but now theres a little surprise that goes with it. in fact I cant wait to get it done!

And, lastly for now.. look at this poor old baby boy! I think his tumor is growing back on his tongue.. This drooling is awful! He doesnt seem to be uncomfortable or in any pain.. just very wet! He is such a sweetie.. I feel so bad for him. he is supposed to be taking prednisone.. but I cant get it in him. darn cat!!!

I'll be blog hopping in the morning.. see you all then!

Hi Girlie! -Long time no chat!! - things are moving double time here! - the countdown has begun - and so much to do... Hubby is working on a playroom/studio for me and the babes so I have been busy buying things for that - and trying to stockpile work so I have something to list when the babe comes. Your blog looks so yummy - it was nice to read and catch up

Have you tried putting it in his wet food? Seems to work for my kitties now. Although not sure if Kiska would do it. Tuna or salmon is great.

Cut pics- can't wait to see the fun!

Great minds think alike.... We're having the same dinner.
I'm not sure whats for dessert yet. Pecan tartlets ala mode sounds delish.

I'm so sorry to hear about kitty.
I hope he's okay. I know how worrisome it can be when our little ones are sick.

Sweet wishes,

P.S. I mixed the meds in yogurt. My kitty is wise to the sneak it into the wet food trick.

Good luck,

...did you soak the veggies in the dressing? they looooook so yummy...

Susan said...

Poor kitty. It's so sad when our furry babies are sick.

Those veggies look great, and they will counteract the calories in those tasty tarts.

Enjoy the weekend. Susan
