Dog Days of Summer!

I'm back in action and back to my normal routine this morning after a great week-long visit with my family! There's never a dull moment when they are around, especially my little brother! It has been ridiculously hot here in Florida, and when I mean ridiculous, I mean 100F plus!!! It makes it real hard to try to keep up this new tan that I'm sporting. :) So in honor of these Dog Days of Summer, today's post is in honor of my child, Halo. She has such a rough life. She has her own routine and when it gets out of whack, well... let's just say everyone pays dearly. :)

This is Halo.

She knows what she wants and she'll do anything in her power to get it, even if it includes being mischievious...

She listens intently when you have to say something. Especially if it includes any of the words "hungry, food, eat or ride."

She's a girly girl and loves her makeup. We ladies have to look good you know...

This is her rendition of a child falling asleep in a highchair.

She's definitely not modest!

Her favorite thing in the whole wide world is a Gatorade bottle.

And it wouldn't be fathomable to miss a naptime! She has a rough life huh?

So in honor of Halo, I'm posting a dog treat recipe!!

Dog Treats

½ cup Peanut Butter
½ cup Honey
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil (or Olive Oil)
1 cup Chicken Broth
1 cup Rolled Oats
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup All-purpose Flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together peanut butter, honey, oil and chicken broth.
In a separate bowl, combine flours and oatmeal. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Place dough on flour dusted surface. Roll or press dough out to about 1/4” inch thick. Use a small bone cookie cutter, or cutter of your choosing to cut out cookies. Roll out leftover scraps and cut out as many as possible.
Put cut out cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.
