Sunday Stroll

Mom and I changed up our walking route this morning.   We have been having daily afternoon thunderstorms and before July 4th, we would hear fireworks at bedtime - not many but enough to stress me out so it has been a stressful week for sure.  
I have turned into velcro Molly on walkies.  You never know when one of those evil noises might happen again even though it's only 7 AM.   Mom says that my "heel" is superb and dog trainers would be so proud of me but that's not what she wants.  She wants me to have fun and enjoy our walkie together.

What have we here?  
Mom looked it up.  It's snow cone fireworks.   So you must have been one of the noises that we heard last night for one solid hour of non-stop noise.   
A delectable treat you are NOT!  Shame on you for that EVIL packaging!
 Actually, it was a stressful 4th but we made it.   We think because all of the towns cancelled firework displays because of the pandemic that the neighbors made up for it.   
 You are such a sweetheart, Miss Laura.  You are always so kind and thoughtful.
On a positive note~
Last year at Easter, my sissy gave mom an Easter lily.   Mom enjoyed it and then planted it in the garden and it's blooming again this year☺
We hope all of you had a happy 4th☺

Love ya lots♥

In Purrsuit Of Flavours

We are joining Phenny and Nelly for In Purrsuit of Flavours.   We are posting one of our favorite summer foods.
 One of our very favorite summer treats is Strawberry Shortcake.

 We sugared the strawberry with lots of sugar so we will get lots of yummy juice.
 Mom didn't feel like making homemade shortcake because she is lazy so she bought these spongecake dessert shells and she cheated once again by not buying real whip cream. She told me that yogurt would be much healthier for you, Molly.  
 Yummers.   I forgive you mom.   
 Strawberry Shortcake is served!
 Summer can never happen without Strawberry Shortcake!
We can't wait to read what others have chosen for their favorite summer foodables.
Happy first day of July!

Love ya lots♥

I'm a Princess

I"m sure no one has any doubt that I truly am a Princess but this story gets better.   Mom bought a new pillow, which she dearly loves.    She didn't want to store the old ones or get rid of them so.............
I almost need a ladder to get on my bed☺
 I'm not spoiled much, right?!
Love ya lots♥

Off we go~~
The farmhands staked all of the tomato plants this past week.  That is a LOT of stakes!
 We found another beautiful Peony in bloom~
 Our temps are hot and humid and nasty and the only good thing about high humidity is that is makes the Honeysuckle smell absolutely fabulous!
 This is Mr Mike's little Dahlia~
 We found Smartweed~
 We found a turtle in our 3-way intersection close to home.  Mom picked him up and moved him out of the road.   Sorry that the picture is blurry.

Tasty Tuesday

We made Aunt Lydia's Cranberry Salad yesterday.   The weather here is hot and humid and what better idea than to make a cold and refreshing yummy jello salad.
To be honest, it took us awhile to find the crushed pineapple.  For some reason, the hoarders keep emptying the shelves of it. We finally found the crushed pineapple at our local Northford Store.   

One 20-oz can crushed pineapple, undrained
Two small packages of raspberry jello
One can whole berry cranberry sauce
One medium Granny Smith apple (mom goofed and bought another kind - oops)
Chopped walnuts (the Turmeric is not part of the ingredients☺)

Drain the pineapple, reserving all liquid in a one quart measuring cup.  Add enough cold water to make three cups.  Pour it into a pot, bring to a boil and remove from heat.  Add jello and stir for two minutes until dissolved.   Put in the frig for thirty minutes. 
Add cranberry sauce and stir well.
Pour into a large bowl and refrigerate for two hours.
Stir in the pineapple, apple and nuts.  Stir gently.
 You really can't tell these are cranberries in here because the raspberry jello is the dominate flavor.  It's so chunky and yummy!
 My turn - my turn!
We will definitely be making this salad again!  Thank you so much for sharing your recipe with us, Auntie Lydia!
