Sandy’s first haircut

IMG_20160426_134044

First of all Sandy is a Shih-Poo, a mix of a Shih Tzu and a Poodle. We bought her off of my Aunts neighbor who just had a litter. I’ll get into the reason we got Sandy in the future. We got her in either late October or early November and she was around 6-7 weeks old.

Needless to say that we didn’t have a reason to get her a haircut until recently. On the right is what she looked like and the left is after he first haircut. I made a joke to my wife that Sandy must have run away during the haircut and they gave us a new dog. I knew she would look different but I wasn’t expecting such a difference.

She definitely looks like her father, he was a pure Poodle.

Easter Dinner, the review

So Easter Dinner has come and gone and I must say it was a success. I was told by not only my wife, daughter, niece, nephew, sister and brother in law but the ever hard to please father.

Above is a plated picture of what we ate. My sister handled the collard greens, macaroni and cheese and ham. Cherice made the Orzo with parmesan cheese, peas and lardons while I made the braise Lamb Shanks with Sweet Potato Polenta. I’ll post the pictures of how the lamb shanks and polenta during the cooking process along with the recipes I used.

Hopefully, you’ll enjoy them as much as I did. And please, if you have any questions, comments or whatever feel free to drop me a line. I’m still getting used to WordPress format so this site doesn’t look how I want it to in my head as of yet.

Easter Dinner

So this Easter, we’re going over to my folks house for dinner. I’ve tasked myself with making Braised Lamb Shanks along with Sweet Potato Polenta. Cherice is going to be in charge of the vegetables.

I’ll post the recipe I use and some pictures after we’re done. Hopefully it’ll come out wonderful.

Going to get the Shanks and everything from Fairway on Friday. Shanks are surprisingly hard to find, most places just have legs.
