I have a couple of new things to tell you about today. Most importantly, we got our first dog! Her name is Athena and she is the sweetest pup. She has taken over our lives, which is why this post is about her and not something new and yummy that I’ve whipped up. This is what she looks like when she’s behaving:
She likes to lie down with her paws crossed. Athena can be so lady-like.
And this is what she looks like when she’s playing:
Not so lady-like. And a little scary. All I have to say about that is that her playmate, Tobey, was the most patient dog alive, and I’m glad she was rough-housing with him and not me. She likes to play (i.e. jump and nip), you see, and she doesn’t realize her teeth are sharp… luckily we have our first puppy obedience lesson on Saturday.
Now for my other piece of news: it’s time for my blog’s first-ever giveaway!! The nice people over at CSN stores are giving away a $35 coupon for any one of their 250 online stores (many of which sell kitchen-related stuff) to one of my readers! Pretty cool, huh?
In a theoretical world, I would maybe use that $35 towards a new dining table or maybe some place-mats, since Athena enjoys chewing on everything in sight and has made it her mission to destroy as many things as possible (latest victim: my laptop power cord. RIP.)
To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is post a comment below on this entry and answer the following question: What is your favorite kitchen gadget? I will randomly select a winner on Thursday, October 7 at 8:00 am EST. The giveaway is over. Thanks to those who entered!!
Oh, and if you win and you live in Canada (or any other country besides the U.S., I suppose), international shipping rates will apply to whatever it is you chose to buy.
Anyhoo, personally, I really love my pastry cutter, although I know that if I owned a stand mixer, that would be my most favorite, hands down.
Now it’s your turn!
