Cobb Salad

In trying to eat a bit healthier and lower carb, I'm trying to get more salads and veggies into the rotation.  We had this lovely Cobb salad the other day for lunch.  Or was it dinner?  I  can't remember.  I do know it was delicious and we ate every last bit.  And I missed the bread.

Grilled chicken, blue cheese, bacon, hard boiled egg, avocado, tomatoes

Milo is racking up the vet bills again.  He was not feeling well the other night and clearly very uncomfortable, so off to the vet we went.  3 1/2 hours later we left with two meds, xrays, somewhere around 80 ultrasound pics of his intestinal walls, kidney, adrenal glands, pancreas, and other internal bits and pieces and orders to come back in the morning for another xray.  He seemed to be back to his cranky self last night, and is doing ok today.  He has to fast until Friday.  Until then, we have to force feed him his meds, keep him hydrated with a 50% dilution of Pedialyte, and try to keep Quincy from harassing him.  Oh yes, they shaved his belly and half way up his sides to do the ultrasound, so he's got a sort of doggie mohawk going on.  Not cute.

Anybody know what flavor Pedialyte dogs prefer?  Cause it isn't unflavored by the reaction I got today.  This is going to get really messy.

Asparagus Pizza

Wow, what an amazing pizza!  Deb over at posted this asparagus pizza and she, as usual, was right on.  I used fresh mozzarella and cooked it on the grill with a quick finish under the broiler.  It's way too hot to turn on the oven tonight.  The crust had a nice char on the bottom that was just short of burnt.  The dough was good even though I made it just a few hours ago, with a nice chewiness to the interior.  I also finished off that homemade wine, which went well with the pizza.  I don't think it would have stood up to a tomato based pizza yet, but it was good with this light, springy one.
