Happy 3rd birthday! Thank you for being our dog. Every since we met you, you've wiggled your way into our hearts and turned us into a family. Even though I tell everyone that we adopted you, I know the truth - that you adopted us.
You came to us at a turning point in my life, when I had left behind my job and embarked on this journey to nursing school and beyond. You were always there through the good days and bad days, curled up beside me, ever present and loving. When I was newly pregnant and sick in bed, you napped beside me and calmed me down.
Now, whenever I come home from work, you're so excited to see me that the stress of the day just melts away. I love you so much, and I'm so excited for many more years to come.
Happy Birthday Bacon Biscuits
3 cups flour (I used whole wheat)
1-1/2 cups cornmeal
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup bacon bits
Time and temperature: 375 for 30 minutes
Stir together the flour, the cornmeal and the bacon bits. In a small bowl, mix together the eggs, water and oil. Add to the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon. Turn out onto the counter or workspace and knead until the dough forms a ball. If your dough is too crumbly, wet your hands for added moisture. Roll out 1/4 inch thick and cut with your favorite cookie cutter. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes until golden brown at the edges. Share with your best furry friend.
