Hi guys, happy Wednesday!

How’s the week?

This is my favorite time of year weather wise (I say that literally every season but winter) because it’s warm enough to hike in shorts but you don’t sweat to death.

Plus, there aren’t mosquitos yet which makes soccer so much nicer.

And oh my gosh, we had a game last night that resulted in our coach being ejected for yelling at the referee. Apparently, you are not allowed to ask the ref if he plans on calling anything. 

It was a wild night in under 10 soccer.

Hi guys! Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend!

We don’t really do much for holidays since we’re so far away from family. It was just me and the boys so we took the dogs for a hike and had chicken nuggets for dinner. The usual.

But I have a really great recipe to share with you today!

I feel like pork chops are so underrated. You never really hear anyone talking about a great pork chop they had recently, you know?

But dang, I love a pork chop.

Hi guys!

I made breakfast!

Oh my gosh, it rained all. weekend. long.

And, like, actual storms. With thunder. We never get storms like that.

I didn’t leave the house a single time. I watched 2 full seasons of Real Housewives of NY, read a book and a half, and made more chicken jerky for the dogs. I desperately needed a weekend of no stress and doing absolutely nothing. It was perfect.

And I had made these muffins during the week so I didn’t even have to worry about making breakfast for anyone.

Homemade Chicken Jerky for Dogs – the easiest dog treat recipe! Thinly sliced chicken baked at a really low temperature until dehydrated. My dogs love this!

Homemade Chicken Jerky for Dogs - the easiest dog treat recipe! Thinly sliced chicken baked at a really low temperature until dehydrated. My dogs love this!

 

If you had told teenage me that I’d spend a lot of time making homemade dog treats as an adult, I would’ve said, “Yep, sounds right.”

I would’ve also said, “I’ll drive a Jeep, have a really cute boyfriend, and live at the beach.”

And, well, pretty close.

Anyway, the other day I was at Petco looking at all the rodents and cats up for adoption and wandered over to the dog treats where they want 20 DOLLARS FOR A TINY BAG OF JERKY.

No.

We’re making our own jerky,

I made giant batch for 8 bucks. And that was using organic air chilled chicken because I was feeling fancy that day.  Click for the full recipe

Hi guys!

How was the weekend?

We had soccer all day Saturday (one win and one devastating 11-0 loss) and then I started The Act on Hulu. Then I obviously had to watch every single documentary about the crime the show is based on.

Which lead to a Disappeared marathon and now it’s Monday morning.
