He's a She!

Poor Scruffy...Mark and Haddie took him to the vet this morning while I was at work. We decided we'd better get him fixed so we can get him licensed before March 1st to avoid a fine and citation. Mark picked him up this afternoon and was quite disappointed. Not just because we had to pay $200 (he needed vaccinations too)...but he was distraught because they didn't give Scruffy the Elizabethan collar. He's been looking forward to taking pictures of the poor thing wearing it. Alas, they said it wasn't necessary unless he proves otherwise.
That reminds me of 10 Things I Hate About You..."What's the collar for? Is it to keep him from licking the stitches?" Ha ha I love it.
Anyway. Scruffy whined the whole way home. I'm sure he's upset with us for taking away his manhood. Poor picked on dog! He's doing quite well though. We just barely gave him food, hopefully it sits well in his stomach.
Oh my dear husband, he's such a crazy man. A couple hours ago Scruffy had an accident downstairs which upset Mark. The vet's assistant told him he likely wouldn't poop for 24 hours or so because of the anesthesia. So Mark didn't worry about putting him outside. Poor dog hadn't been outside to pee all afternoon! He figured that he wouldn't need to pee because of the anesthesia as well!????? Leave it to him. So I helped the poor doggy out and put him out for a few minutes lol.

Recipe for Jess

Jessica (a nurse from work) asked me to post the recipe for something I took for lunch one here it is! My mom made it for us growing up, and it quickly became a family fave. Sorry, I have no picture to show :( But I promise it's yummy!

Sour Cream Chili Bake

1 lb ground beef
1 can tomato sauce
1/2 package taco seasoning
salt & pepper, to taste
1 can red kidney beans
grated cheddar cheese
sour cream
Nacho Cheese Doritos

Brown your hamburger & add taco seasoning
In 13x9 baking dish, mix hamburger, tomato sauce, salt & pepper, kidney beans and 1/2 cup cheese - Smooth in bottom of dish
Add a layer of sour cream (we LOVE sour cream so we use a ton!)
Add a layer of Doritos, slightly crushed. (I just squeeze them in my hand til they break a little)
Top with more cheese
Bake in oven at 350 for 20 min or until cheese melts

I make this at least a couple times a month. It even freezes well - you just put it in the fridge to thaw the night before. I've even made it when Mark & I were doing Weight Watchers - we just used a 8x8 pan instead, used less cheese, fat free sour cream, less ground beef and Baked Doritos. We'd eat the whole pan, and it was only like 10 Flex points a piece, depending on how lean you buy your ground beef. Enjoy!
