Other than mentioning her in passing once in a while, I don't often write about my dog. She is so eager to be helpful, and is right now chasing a plate around the kitchen floor. I bought a bag of Wild Alaska sockeye salmon fillets at Costco a few days ago, and this is the second time I've fixed one of them. They are individually wrapped, and the package contains about 10 fillets. Easy to thaw, you can put them in the fridge to thaw or place the wrapped fillet in cold water. I marinate them in olive oil & seasonings for a short time and then bake in the oven.
To say they are delicious would be an understatement. Tonight is the second time I've enjoyed this delectable fish, and the plate was left with the skin and a few odd flakes of salmon, so I set it down on the floor for Lady to clean up. Earlier she had seen me remove a fillet from the package and waited patiently for the job she was sure she had to do - polish the plate, and polish it she did. She was practically drooling while I was eating (and ignoring her), but she's a good girl and doesn't bother me while I'm eating and keeps her distance. As an added bonus she got some of the buttery juice from the fresh spinach, as well as the cheesy remains from the baked potato. I tried not to leave her too much.
I didn't do much today, but finished one of the books I checked out of the library yesterday. It was a fairly large book (although in large print), and I could barely put it down once I started reading it. I'm ready to start on the second book which will probably be more difficult as it is in regular size type.
I'll need to buy half & half tomorrow, so at least I will get out of the house for a bit. It is supposed to rain, and I certainly won't drive far. There are a lot of small items I need to get at KMart or Target, but being that it's close to the end of the month I don't want to spend what money I have left,
