Happy Valentine's Day! We don't have time to chat because we are busy cooking away! So here are some great shots of Hef enjoying his treats! Oh yeah, what are we cooking? That's a big surprise, any guesses?

So change of schedule, Little B will be going in for her spay tomorrow, Monday morning. Good thoughts need, I am a nervous Mama! Our other pups were spayed before they came home, before we got attached, and I've never cared for a pup straight out of surgery so I am nervous!

Alright we are back in the kitchen! I daren't type out an honored recipe from Mastering the Art of French Cooking, besides you should all have a copy yourself! I will go through my experience and share some photos. Unfortunately it wasn't specified which mushrooms to use and I don't have a lot of mushroom experience so I stuck with basic white button mushrooms. I have to say I was dying to share this with Hef's dad, since he is a great love of Campbell's version.
|My kitchen helpers, Little B actually alerted me to stop taking pictures and check the butter because it is foaming and its time to add the caps.|
|Perfect for this kinda sorta winter we are having!|

Unfortunately I realized in the car I had called the wrong vet, but I really wanted to get Little B spayed and started with her shots, so we went anyway. I was nervous because I had bad experiences with this vet, muzzling Shadow, giving me a lecture that Big Bandit should never be around children, etc. but things went pretty well. The vet told me that Little B has all her adult teeth, so she has to be at least 7 months old so it's finally confirmed she is 8 months old as I was told. Little B was very well behaved, she listened to my commands, and just sat and watched as two other dogs nearly got in a dog fight. She made me very proud.
So Little B got her rabies and distemper, and she is scheduled to get spayed a week from today, Valentine's Day, the poor thing! She got a puppy package, which included her shots, and some starter flea medicine, heart medicine, id tag and spaying.
|The first thing the vet said was that her ears were standing up nice, boy are they!|

Let's all give Little Bandit a big hug today, she is going to the vet for the first time! She is getting puppy shots and probably staying overnight to get spayed! I'm a bit of a nervous mama, what with all the horror stories of animals going under!

Ok, so we're back in the kitchen! I have to say it was a successful and delicious return. Now BL already sneaked a peek on my facebook page but for the rest of you here it is! To get the formal stuff out of the way here is the recipe, http://www.hillshirefarm.com/recipes/polska-bean-stew.aspx, the only substitution I made was beef broth instead of chicken broth. Ok, now for the Hef's Mom review:
|With this much Bacon I think we are off to a good start!|
|Look how big Little B is getting!|
|Back to the stew! This picture is upside down, but you can see how yummy it is! It is hearty and perfect for this weirdo winter we are having!|
|Here you go, a bowl for you!|
