I heard that your dog has been very good lately and deserves a treat. These Homemade Pumpkin Carrot Dog Treats are so easy and your pup is going to love them!
I ever tell you guys about the first date I went on last year where I gave the poor guy a full pitch of the cookbook I want to write one day?
One glass of wine and I got real passionate about my maybe someday in the very distant future cookbook: Booze and B*tch Biscuits, a book all about cocktails and homemade dog treats.
Amazingly, we actually ended up going out a few more times after that.
I’m all in on pumpkin.
Oh! I haven’t had my first official PSL yet. Have you? I got one from McDonald’s a couple weeks ago because I like theirs so much more than Starbucks but I feel like I need to go to Starbucks just for an Instagram picture.

Is everyone adjusted to school now?
We pretty much are but I feel like I’m forever looking for ways to really streamline to lunch making process.
So I’m trying to find things that I can either make ahead of time or that are just easy to grab and put in a lunchbox without much fuss. But I also want things that are going to keep my kids full throughout the day.
Part of what’s making my life super easy when it comes to lunches are these Yoplait yogurts. The Yoplait multipacks recently got a makeover that includes an easy open top so you (or your kids) can see which flavors are left and easily grab them from the fridge.
I picked up the Strawberry and Peach package and a package of all Strawberry at Walmart to get us started this school year. My kids love both flavors and they’re super quick to pop in the lunchbox with an ice pack to keep it nice and chilled.
They also make great snacks after school when your kids need something super quick because they cannot wait longer than 2 minutes to get outside and play with their friends.
I’ve made these Chicken Bacon Ranch Pinwheels several times since my kids went back to school. They are super easy to make ahead of time and then I slice them and store them in the fridge so that all I have to do is pop 5 or 6 slices into a small container and toss it into the lunchbox with the yogurt and the ice pack and a couple other things.
I know that making a sandwich in the morning isn’t a huge deal but man, at 6:30 in the morning it’s just nice to have something already prepped and ready to go.
My kids love them. The boyfriend even comes home from work and swipes a couple slices whenever I have them in the fridge.
Chicken Bacon Ranch Pinwheels
1 (8-ounce) block cream cheese
1 tablespoon dry ranch dressing mix
1 tablespoon milk
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
⅓ cup green onion, thinly sliced
8 burrito size flour tortillas
½ pound deli sliced chicken
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk, beat cream cheese, ranch dressing mix, and milk until combined and smooth. Beat in bacon, cheddar cheese, and green onion, just until everything is incorporated.
Spread a heaping tablespoonful of the cream cheese mixture onto each tortilla. Lay 3 or 4 slices of chicken on top and roll tightly. Refrigerate for an hour before slicing and serving.

Happy Friday eve!
I think we may have made our final lake trip of the year last weekend.
It was cold.
I think I lasted 30 minutes before I wrapped myself in all 4 of our towels and then they eventually followed me out.
Not really sure what I’m going to do with my weekends now.
On the brightside, maybe it will finally be cool enough for long hikes with the husky. We went for one last week and by about mile 4, she led me to the lake and then just stood in water up to her chest for a good 15 minutes.
Also, haven’t been able to have the top off the Jeep since May so I’m definitely looking forward to that, too.
