Making Salad

Today was a fun day for me. My dad cooks in his workshop on occasion. He has one of those single element burners and one of his specialties is chicken cutlets.
We make a great team -mom dips the chicken in milk, then flour, then egg and then the breadcrumbs and dad fries the cutlets. I keep a close eye on the floor to make sure nothing needs cleaning up. Mom loves it when dad cooks because all she has to do is make salad!

And I love helping mom make salad. Mom used fresh spinach today instead of lettuce. I'm not fond of the leaf but I do love the crunchy stem!
Next was the cucumber ~

I just luvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv cucs! The're cold and wet and oh so yummy!

Then the carrots. Mom says these help keep my teeth clean!

Now the cheddar cheese chunks. ummmmmmmmmmm I love cheese!

Can you see that my beard is getting wetter and wetter with drool!

Now comes the croutons - they're cheese and garlic flavor. Hand it over mom! I can hardly wait!

So there you have it! Our dinner for tonight - a family affair!

Until next time...................

Love ya lots,

Hey Maggie,
Our beards are full of drool just listening to your descriptions! hehehehehe! We love carrots & cheese too! Don't know about that spinach thing though. Mama does make a good spinach quiche that we like, but the spinach is cooked in that. Fufu will have to bring all of us doggies to your house in his Fufumobile to help you eat those chicken cutlets up!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Sounds like U too had a perfect salad serve in parts. So, if U jump around after chowing, the salad will get toss in your stomach?!

Oooo... the cheese look absolutely to die for. I usually get only a tiny tiny peice.
