How we spent our fall vacation.
by Guapa, the brown and white puppy
We had a fun time while our Human was away on holiday.
Our Other Human didn’t play with us a lot so we had to invent our own games.
Bonnie suggested we see how many new holes we could dig. Here are six of our best.
When we needed a break from digging we rested on the iris bed. It was really comfy…. Until they all broke off.
Other Human was busy and didn’t see us.
All the herbs were soft until our Other Human forgot to water them and they all dried up.
Our Human was not pleased.
He put a fence around it.
Bonnie got inside the fence and couldn’t find her way out.
Other Human talked really loudly to her.
He’s no fun.
This is Bonnie. She’s black and white
She’s chewing on a rubber carrot.
She had been chewing on this acorn squash until our Human caught her.
Seems our Human had promised our Other Human she would make soup out of it
But we’re glad to have both of our Humans where they belong.
Of course, we’re still digging holes and jumping in the herb garden
Other Human will tell you what he did tomorrow.
1 medium acorn squash
1 medium apple
1 medium onion
2 cups chicken stock
2 tsp butter
1/4 tsp powdered ginger
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
10 sage leaves
2 tsp olive oil
Cut squash in half, remove seeds and microwave until tender.
Roughly chop onion. In medium saucepan sauté onion in butter until tender.
Peel and chop apple. When squash is done remove from shell. Add squash, apple, stock, ginger and nutmeg to onions. Heat to boiling, reduce heat, cover and simmer 15 – 20 minutes.
Stir in yogurt and gently reheat.
Heat oil in a small skillet. Add sage leaves and fry until crisp.
To serve: Ladle into soup plates or bowls and garnish with sage leaves.
