Her one sweet pup has serious separation anxiety, and whimpers due to it.
I am proud to say however, that come yesterday we had broken him of the habit. My #1 even called me after she got home to ask what I had done to her dog???!!! You see, every time she used to leave he would whimper, then bark and whimper when she returned home until she let him out of his crate. She had run to Target to pick a few things up, and came home to quiet!! I just told her to call me "the dog whisperer", LOL.
And, yesterday was my sweet hubby's birthday. He usually doesn't like a lot of fanfare, so I asked him what he would like for dinner and dessert afterwards. Not surprised, he chose pot roast with mashed potatoes and Boston Cream Pie.
The pot roast and mashed potatoes were a no brainer for me. Grass-fed Sirloin tip roast, beef stock, onion-quartered, and spices (onion powder, garlic powder, italian seasonings-trust me it is so good, salt and pepper). Brown the roast on all sides, and then place in crock pot. Add broth, onion, and spices. Cook on Low about 7-8 hours. Melts in your mouth!! He said it was the best he'd ever had.
Now, as far as the dessert goes, the last time I had made Boston Cream Pie was ages ago and not gluten free by any means. Knowing my cooking skills back then it was most likely out of a box.
I googled looking for a recipe and found this one. It was easy to prepare, and we had all but 3 ingredients already in our pantry and frig.
Oh man, it was delicious!!
All in all, hubby said it was the best birthday dinner he'd had to date. Mission accomplished.
I hope to share several other yummy recipes we tried last week tomorrow on "What's for Dinner Wednesday".
