New Additions and a Great Sandwich

Well, I think we will only be eating peanut butter sandwiches and spaghetti for a while, because of these cuties. My kids have been wanting a dog forever, and I've always resisted. But who could resist these faces? I feel like I have a newborn again. Both in good and bad ways! But we love them anyway.

This is the eggplant torta and refried beans from Viva Vegan. Eggplant marinated with tomato paste, olive oil, and spices, layered with summer tomatoes, avocado and red onion. Loved it! The beans were good, too - different because of the bay leaf. I have had this book for a while and never cooked from it. I have a bunch of recipes earmarked for when I someday have time to cook again!

What kind of precious beings are those?! They do not look of this earth.

Oh their faces are so cute!
Congrats on your new babies : ]
Pets really are wonderful!

They are soft coated wheaten terriers. And they don't shed!

Wow! They awesome!

We loved those sandwiches from Viva Vegan!
And the new babies are adorable!

Oh those furry faces! I want to squeeze them senseless! Aww, cuties!

I haven't tried the Viva Vegan torta yet, but it does look so tasty!

Enjoy the pups! :)

Very cute pups! I am impressed that you got two--we got a dog aafter years of the kids wearing me down this past spring, and one is quite enough work and expense for me. Also, we got a rescue that was about a year and a half old--old enough to be out of the puppy phase, but young enough that we will have her for a while, which works perfectly us. It is still a big change, though!

I am going to have to get Viva Vegan one of these days--I have been eying it for a while, but I am trying to spend less money, so I have been holding off. It looks so good, though1

I want to smooch those puppies and steal your sandwich.
