I adopted Truman from the Australian Cattle Dog Rescue of Illinois on April 11, 2010. It was one of best things I have ever done. Each year we participate in the Wisconsin Dog Fair at the Alliant Energy Center. It's happening this Sunday, November 2nd from 10 til 4. This is an event where you can get up close and personal with 150 breeds of dogs so you can educate yourself on what kind would be right for you and your family. Truman and I will be representing the Australian Cattle Dog breed in the “Herding” section. Stop by and say hello and give Truman a belly rub.
This isn’t an event where you can bring in your own dog but there will be lots of vendors there for you to find something fun to take home to your pooch. You’ll also see lots of demonstrations in fly ball and agility and police dog training and more. It’s really a fun day to walk around and pet all the dogs and see them in action. Click the link above for all the info. Truman and I will see you Sunday!
Have you ever gone to the grocery store and seen a big, beautiful display of autumn squash that makes you want to buy several, except, you have no idea the name of each one or how to cook them, let alone how each one tastes? I have been there.
Copps and Pick N Save know many of us have no idea about all the different varieties of squash but would LIKE to. So, they came up with this wonderful, easy to read chart that describes all the different varieties of Autumn squash and how they taste so you know exactly what to pick out AND how to prepare it next time you find yourself longing after all those beautiful gourds.
Food education. It’s a good thing thanks to Copps and Pick N Save. By the way, Acorn, Butternut and Delicata squash are my favorite. SO good!
Chicken is one of my favorite things to eat. It’s my go-to protein. I eat chicken almost every day BUT there are times when I get tired of eating it the same way (which is usually broiled with a little Italian seasoning). I don’t want to waste it but sometimes it’s hard to gulp down another bite of plain broiled chicken.
I knew I could count on www.copps.com and www.picknsave.com to offer me more recipes and ways to prepare and enjoy my chicken. Have they ever! Just look at all these great ideas. I’m printing this article out and putting up on my fridge. Next time you have left over chicken you can spruce it up with one of these tips.
