It was an awesome day meeting people, meeting rescue groups, selling treats, meeting awesome dogs and their foster families, and eating great food from Ragin’ Cajun, and Cake Bar.

Please check out Cake Bar’s website if you are in the LA area, the owner Grace is wonderful and we were so happy to see that she was a vendor at this event as well!

Busy week!

Hi all!

Haven’t gotten to post lately life has been so crazy! All week I have been working at OMG! Insider and have been baking some awesome treats for Echo’s Friends’ Cookies!!

Echo got to play tug of war for real finally with an awesome pup Charlie at the dog park.

I’ve also been looking for a new roommate which has been a bit more time consuming than expected. Hopefully we can find the right person soon.

Last night I also made lunch for the next two days at work, Lindsey and her mom had given me this pot of condensed stock:

20130417-222820.jpg Shes been making roasts and chicken with it recently, so good!

So I made some ground turkey, spinach and rice using this condensed stock.

First I cooked up the turkey meat on the stove with organic Worcester sauce.

20130417-223252.jpg

The put 2 bags of rice melody (from trader joes) in the microwave.

20130417-223348.jpg

Once the meat was cooked up I added the condensed stock and organic frozen spinach, and cooked it until the spinach was warmed through.

Last I added the cooked rice and stirred it well.

What we’ve been up to with Echo’s Friends’ Cookies!

Hi all! Sorry for being kinds of missing in action this week, Lindsey and I have been busy making puppy treats and launching Echo’s Friends’ Cookies!!

20130407-011723.jpg

Saturday Lindsey and I made Puppy Truffies to take to Camp Run-a-mutt Sunday.

We also made:

Peanut butter Banana Crunchies

Carrot Banana Sticks These now have flax seed meal instead of corn meal, which we all like even better.

Apple Cinnamon bites

20130408-223127.jpg

We took all these to an event at Camp Run-A-Mutt! Julie (the awesome manager) set us up with a spot and a table to sell our treats/cookies! The pet parents reactions were very positive and the dogs loved them!!

20130408-225120.jpg

And Sunday night after the event Lindsey came up with a new one!!

Chicky Crisps!
These came out so good once again we couldn’t stop eating them. We think they need to be a people treat too!

Busy day off

20130404-233643.jpg
That is definitely my favorite photo from yesterday!

Yesterday I was all over the place as usual, luckily my sister Sierra has been in town and I’ve gotten to spend some awesome time with her around working. And of course we dragged Lindsey in as well!

Back to the day, after working late the night before I slept a bit later than usual then jumped up got my coffee with Echo in tow. Came home got Sisi (Sierra) went and got her phone repaired. Came home again, cleaned a bunch, gave the girls a ton of lettuce from the garden

20130404-234304.jpg
Had a painter out for an estimate, took Echo to Camp Run-A-Mutt for daycare,

20130404-234232.jpg
Then headed to get Lindsey and got Boba!

20130404-234318.jpg

After running a few more places we headed back to the house again, i started working up a cost calculation for our “Echo’s Friend’s Cookies” while Lindsey worked on these amazing and incredible rock veggie markers for my garden!!

20130405-000503.jpg

20130405-000511.jpg

20130405-000518.jpg

Then Sisi showed back up with her awesome friends in tow and decided to attempt to eat 100 chicken mc-nuggets (not a thing I condone but slightly entertaining none the less).

20130405-001212.jpg

20130405-001222.jpg

Later we all went to pick Echo up from Camp Run-A-Mutt that’s when this happened haha

20130405-001514.jpg

After, the teens had all their bikes out so Lindsey and I took Echo out to see how she would do walking along side us on bikes

20130405-001338.jpg

20130405-001352.jpg

20130405-001406.jpg

When I took Echo to Camp Run-A-Mutt for daycare the awesome manager Julie told me that the treats we took over “Echo’s Friend’s Cookies” went over great and asked when we wanted to bring more in! So after all that bike riding Lindsey and I set off to make more! Here’s some photos ( I will cover them in more detail soon)

20130405-002122.jpg

Oh and again tonight my hen Starla did not put herself to bed, I have no idea what’s wrong or what’s bothering her, hopefully tomorrow I will be able to figure it out after further investigation. have you have had a chicken act the way? Not wanting to go to bed in the coop suddenly after almost a year of doing so everyday.

20130329-190809.jpg

Yesterday Echo went back to Doggy Day Care and had a blast again at Camp Run-A-Mutt South Bay! While I was there I got to talking with the awesome manager Julie about the adoption event coming up. She mentioned that they have vendors at these events and asked if I baked dog treats. Later when I was with Lindsey we cooked up an idea. 20130329-191507.jpg
