Hef is on the move!

"Ok Mama, I'm driving!"

"NO! Not the passenger seat!"

"I  tottally got this, you just handle the peddles,"

"What do you mean we're not really going anywhere?"
Now  that I've lured you in with some nice Hef shots, time to vent. Did I mention that I am being promoted at work? I am either going to be a shift manager or an assistant manager! At first the promotion was for shift manager but one of the assistant managers is quitting so I might get bumped up to that. Of course this has started to cause some problems at work. It appears a few girls are a bit unhappy that I am serious about being a manager and it's not going to be party time on my shift. Now as a chef in my own home I take my food seriously. Right now I won't eat at work, not because I don't like fast food but because I don't like what I see from employees. So these girls asked me what I was going to do as a manager and I told them, stop using your cell phones when your on a seccurity camera, stop wearing food prep gloves and using your phone and oh please wash your hands after going outside and smoking! Aren't I a crazy mean soon to be manager?

We made it to the park!

One of things I have really been looking forward to since getting the car was taking the dogs to the park. However the weather hasn't cooperated with us! Today we made it! It is 79 outside! There was  warm breeze coming off the Niagara River. We took a nice hour walk before raindrops started.
"Where do we go first?"

Of course I had to be a mean mom and not let them go on the wet sand.
Our park is also a marina, but the boats aren't there yet! I thought Bandit was going to jump in the river!
"Don't you drag me in there!"

Here it is!

Here is the newest member of The Bunny Lounge family! Nope, not another dog, thats Shadow. Look past Shadow and meet Putt-Putt! Putt-Putt is a 2000 Chevy Cavalier, staying very spry with only 48,000 miles. Putt-Putt was orginally owned my very dearly missed Gram. Gram nicknamed her car Putt-Putt, saying it just putted along.
 Not too shabby huh? Our state recently changed its license plates and they are ugly!!! However I like the FGM, which obviously stands for "From Gram"
 I let Shadow and Bandit check it out too.

"Are you driving?" "I thought you were driving?!"

"I'll sit in the back then!"

"Ok, now let's go to Wendys!"

"Busy bones, Mama? PLEASE?"
Uh no, not busy bones. Those pups sure love them! We haven't posted in a little while, and we have been busy! Business at work is picking up and I have been working more.
"Hurry, Hurry!"
In addition to work, the pups have been keping me busy with their dirty paws! 
"Tsk, just look at those prints on my nice floor!"
Most excitedingly, we have been doing some DMV paperwork to transfer my Gram's car into my name. The Bunny Lounge is going to be mobile again!

Quiet Saturday Night

No one seems to be posting tonight, so we thought we would! Easter is coming! We have decorated our home!
"This basket is great, these stupid plastic eggs are not, replace them with fresh carrots!"
 Now I don't want to hear one thing about how silly I look. Its hard to snuggle a little bun, and work the camera. However it is too adorable not to share Hefs snuggle.
"Oh Mama, the blogosphere is so jealous!"

How about some Lasagna?

When I was growing up, I hated Lasagna. Of course my mother made it with cottage cheese and raw onions. YUCK! I really don't consider myself a picky eater, but if I don't like something I DON'T LIKE IT! Cottage cheese and raw onions are on the top of my list of dislikes. Anywho when I met Hef's dad, his mom made real lasagna and I liked it! It's still not my favorite food but its getting better. Anyhow, last week I made America's Test Kitchen's Skillet Lasagna. I think Skillet Lasagna is a nice alternative to a big pan lasagna, especially for a house of two. Like I said, I made this last week so bear with me as I try to remember the steps.
So far we have browned ground beef or meatloaf mix, onions, and garlic. Then we break up noodles and scatter them on top. The recipe called for 10 broken noodles but I stopped at 7.
Then we add a can of diced tomatoes and some water. Sprinkle with some parmesan cheese, and dollops of ricotta cheese. Cover for I think it was 15 minutes.

After the simmering, ATK just said to sprinkle more parm on top, well I got to thinking about regula Lasagna, with its cheesey top, and we all love the cheesey bubbley brown top right? So I shredded some Mozzarella and broiled it up! Here ya go!

And just like Lasagna, Skillet Lasagna falls apart on the plate too. However, this was less time, less work, and tested just as good!

Do You Coupon?

I coupon, and I hope you do too! I have been couponing for years. When I lived at my mothers I would get the occassional coupons from my Grandma's paper, then when we bought Buntryside we started getting the sunday paper, which we now have on a sundays and holidays subscription. Once Hef's dad thought it would be funny to ask me if we really needed to renew the paper and I flipped out and ranted about savings and such forth while he quietly laughed at me. Now my couponing is getting worse because of two things, printing internet coupons and coupon deal websites. This is becoming my new hobby. We went to Hef's Dad's parents and I asked them for their coupons, and I am saving coupons to send on to my sister and nephew. Even basic couponing can be worth it so I hope everyone will consider it. Most coupons are between .50 cents and 1.00, here the paper costs $2, less with our subscription so I only have to use two coupons to get my money back. Here is a recent example of my savings:

Coupons alone: 28.30! worth it!
And thats just at the grocery store, last week I bought 120 lbs (6 20lb bags) of Pedigree dog food for $25! HA! I'm still doing a hapy bunny dance on that one!

Out to Play

Yes, Hef has come out to play! Bandit got sent to her room with a rawhide knot, and Hef took over again!
 Hef didn't seem to be a big fan of the furniture we've added to the dining room, I did see a few popcorn binkies though. He was fond of this power cord.
"I'm just looking at it, JUST LOOKING!"
 If you go to our youtube site, we have videos of how Hef got to be in this grumpy state! Basically I kept booping his nose like so many of you want to and he got irratated with me, but I think he looks adorable with his ears turned way out.
So then we had snuggly time and everything was ok.
"Your totally jealous right? Just put your arm there and pretend to pet me!"
