Dash ~ Dude ~ Picture of the Day ~ The Liberty Bell ~ 30 Minute Beef Stroganoff ~ Jerry & Brian Dennehy ~ Dash/Brian ~ Sugar Cookie Day

Good 50º clear sunny morning.
It warmed a bit yesterday, we topped at 95º. Predictions for triple digits this week. Joy. 
Yesterday started off interesting... I went out and turned on the sprinkler (rain bird) and Dash attacked the water!!! He was soaked before I could get the thing turned off!!

Dash loves Dude and is his shadow. He follows him everywhere!

Picture of the Day....
Same street, four seasons....
The Liberty Bell is an iconic symbol of American independence, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Liberty Bell weighs 2,080 pounds. Its metal is 70% copper and 25% tin, with the remainder consisting of lead, zinc, arsenic, gold and silver. On July 8, 1776, it is believed that the Liberty Bell rang out from the tower of the Pennsylvania State House (now Independence Hall) in Philadelphia, summoning citizens to the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence. It remains there today and is visited by more than 1 million people each year.

Easy, beefy, and hearty? This 30-Minute Beef Stroganoff will have you in-and-out of the kitchen in a flash, leaving you more time to sit down and enjoy this stick-to-your-ribs favorite!

Observed each year on July 9, National Sugar Cookie Day honors the ever popular and delicious sugar cookie.
A holiday favorite and very easy to make, sugar cookies are sure to disappear quickly once they come out of the oven.  Made with sugar, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla and either baking powder or baking soda, most people have the ingredients on hand at all times and can have the kids help make a batch on any day.  The fun just begins with cutting the dough with fun shaped cookie cutters and then getting creative by decorating with icing and sprinkles. 
The sugar cookie is believed to have originated in the mid 1700′s in Nazareth Pennsylvania.  It was there that the German Protestant settlers created the round, crumbly and buttery cookie that came to be known as the Nazareth Cookie.
