Throw Back Thursday.... 2006. Jerry snapped this of me with the "pack"....
Yukon, aka Tri-Pod on the left, Maggie, and Buckwheat on the couch. Missing was Spanky. She and Buckwheat didn't get along, so had to keep them separated.

Frustrated beyond words.... the Greenies Pill Pouches showed up yesterday. Ok, UPS doesn't deliver very often, they drop packages at the Post Office because of some contract they have. GRRRRRRR.... so I have to go into town to get my order! Anyway, got the Greenies, tried them out of Dude and he was totally uncooperative! He FINALLY ate one of them but wouldn't eat any more. Sigh..................

On a better note..... my high school friend Carol Nasca sent me this Dodger shirt.....

National Apple Betty Day ... or Brown Betty

BETTY, or brown betty, alternates layers of fruit with layers of buttered bread crumbs. Some modern recipes use graham cracker crumbs—but it must have crumbs, not streusel, to be a betty (here’s a recipe). Who was betty? No one knows, but the the dish was first mentioned in print in 1864, so the Betty who created it was working without a modern oven, much less electricity.

4 slices white bread, toasted
3 cups sliced peeled tart apples
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup half-and-half
Tear toast into bite-sized pieces. Place in a greased 1½ qt casserole. Top with apples. Combine sugars and cinnamon. Sprinkle over apples. Drizzle with butter.
Cover and bake at 350º for 30 minutes. Serve warm with cream, or whipped cream, or ice cream.
