I’m starting to wrap up slow-cooker season so I decided I needed to get the rest of the recipes posted.
Someone, who shall remain nameless, is contemplating getting the grills out.
Soon, I hope.
In the meantime he’s been wrestling with rocks / boulders in my potager.
Photos to follow.
As usual, I gave this a stir half-way through cooking time.
It’s not necessary, but I can never resist….

We’ve had a few warm, sunny days.
Our field is starting to dry up.
I decided it was time to clean-up my filthy dogs.
The before picture:
Actually, they don’t look too dirty.
But they were…
I did most of the cleaning with a scissors, The mud on their bellies and legs was too matted to be brushed out.
And they are such sensitive little girls I have to be careful not to tug….
Here’s Guapa, looking much better:
She even has a fluffy tail again!
Bonnie, of course, after enduring the trauma of having the nails on her hind dew-claws clipped, refused to stand for a photo….
She really doesn’t like having her paws touched, although I’ve been trimming the nails every month for almost 7 years and have yet to hurt her.
You’ll just have to trust me when I tell you she was beautiful – all soft and clean.
They were duly rewarded with pig ears.
