Wallace's new raincoat arrived today. We really like it. It fits him well (with some extra room for comfort) and is quite stylish and well made! He walked around in it and seemed very comfortable, and it stayed in place! It was about twice the price of the last one we had, but for something that actually works for us, it was so worth the extra money. I'm glad it arrived today - it's supposed to start raining tonight, and throughout most of the the week. Good timing!

Wallace Instagram account has been such a fun thing for both of us. He only follows other dogs, so we have had a great time seeing other cute dogs and sharing adventures with so many of them.

I divided the rolls into two plans this time: one to bake tonight, and the second went into the freezer. I figured we shouldn't have twelve cinnamon rolls all at once, so I'm going to try to see how they freeze to enjoy another time.

We started off at the grassy/wet/muddy field, then we made our way down to the beach.
Wallace was one happy little guy.

We had a great time visiting with the owner/designer, Rita, and her maltipoo, Rosie. We'll definitely be back!

We went simple for our first go - boiled eggs for our Curry Egg Salad recipe. The eggs were absolutely perfect. They all peeled easily, and looked beautiful.
Next, we made the black eye peas for last nights dinner. They were very good, although slightly softer than Dick's preference, but still very good.
This morning, I made steel cut oatmeal with cinnamon and apples. It was a game changer!! I almost always make steel cut oatmeal for breakfast on weekdays. Our morning routine is that I walk Dick down to the Muni Metro station then walk back home before boiling the water before cooking the oatmeal for 30 minutes. Depending on what time Dick leaves for work, I usually don't eat breakfast until 9:30 or so. With the Instant Pot, I can put everything in, and have it cook the oatmeal for me while I'm out walking. It turned out really great, and is a game changer for my morning routine!!
Tonight I tried something different: I went to the grocery store this afternoon, planning to bake some fish tonight. There were no fish that I was excited about, but they had beautiful muscles at a reasonable price. I had seen a recipe for muscles in white wine in the cookbook my parents had given us with the Instant Pot, so I bought them. We made them tonight, and they were amazing!! I mean, really amazing!! I had made muscles one other time, but it was years ago. This recipe was so simple and fast, and so delicious!!
So, that's four Instant Pot recipes in three days. We're on a roll, and we are big fans!!

Tonight, he hopped up on the sofa to be with us. It made me so happy. He got lots of rubs from both me and Dick, and then he laid down and leaned up against my legs.
I'm so happy to have my sofa dog back!

Dick and I left just a bit early and got home in time to beat the traffic, and watch the fireworks from our balcony.
Happy 2018!! Wishing you all a year of health, peace, happiness and love.
