Although today was an exception, the weather has been much warmer of late. So I’m packing away my winter clothing and putting the teapot on a high shelf.
But this infuser makes me want to pull out the English Breakfast one more time:
My daily cuppa seems much more exotic with this fellow exploring the depths of my favorite mug…
…or iced tea pitcher, perhaps?

Everyone’s had a cheesy grin on their face today cause it’s National Grilled Cheese Day.
But some critics are accusing our fav sandwich of being a fraud.
It’s true — most folks cook grilled cheese sandwiches in a skillet, which technically makes it a fried cheese sandwich.
Is this supposed to make us feel bad? Or the ‘grilled’ cheese sandwich taste less amazing?
No and no.
As we say in the South, get over your fine self.

My dog Rory turned 16 last December, but he has the appetite of a puppy.
Translation: he’s become a picky little shit.
I’ve tried rewarding him with treats after he finishes his dinner. When that stopped working, I gave him the treats first. Then switched to different treats. Then changed his food. Then his bowl. Then started hand-feeding him.
I’m willing to do the work.
Last week I learned a trick from my vet. I don’t know why she has been holding out on me for so long, but it got him to eat like gangbusters.
Smear a little baby food on top of the dog food.
She recommended chicken flavor with broth. I applied said smear, and could barely get the dish on the floor before Rory was face-deep in his dinner.
I was a very happy Mama Dog.
You can be, too.

I just discovered something better than sliced bread —
A toast press — shaped here like a teddy bear — makes your morning slice or lunch sandwich an event.
This is the first I have seen these…and they come in all kinds of designs.
That’s what I get for not watching Food Network anymore.
