  Who's your daddy?  
Two years ago today my Maggie left us. I so miss that sweet pup! Always close to me. ♥ ♥

Dinner was stir-fry.... lots of veggies and soba noodles and fake crab. I know, I know... if you don't like it use real crab!
Drain artichoke hearts and olives, chop some green onions, celery, and tomatoes.....
Sauté mushrooms first then add in onion and celery... next the crab and tomatoes, stir well....

With the soba noodles comes a packet of seasoning.. add that and 1/3 cup water, break up noodles and stir in. I then added about 1/3 cup of the creamy garlic sauce.....

Then it was chair time, wine, and TV. The Bruise was running around like crazy chasing a ball!

And outside the buck showed up for a snack off the deer block and a drink of water. Then he hopped the fence to the pasture and munched on grape leaves...

All I  know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.
