an expensive wiener

in All Posts
I’m glad I had such a HUGE bowl of oatmeal after my 6 mile run, because we didn’t get to lunch until 2:30 PM! I wasn’t even that hungry, so the oatmeal lasted me about 4.5 hours. Considering I never make it more than 3, that’s impressive!

The vet went well, but WHOA–it was $492 for the two dogs. They are expensive little wieners! This just goes to show that owning a pet is both a time and money commitment that shouldn’t be taken lightly! Unfortunately, James Bond tested positive for Lyme Disease, which I guess he caught from a tick when we lived up north. Nothing a few antibiotics can’t cure! Everything else was fine. 🙂

In honor of our expensive dachshunds, we made “wiener” sandwiches–organic chicken sausages on a multi-grain roll with sauteed green peppers, mushrooms, and onions. We also melted some colby pepper jack and squeezed on some mustard. It was delicious, warm, spicy, and filling–PERFECT!

Future Husband made the sandwiches while I chopped up a fruit salad–apples, peaches, blueberries, strawberries….. mmmm!

This meal was HUGE and really calorie dense. The sausages were 140 calories, the cheese around 110, and the roll was probably 250. I didn’t eat a morning snack and I certainly won’t need an afternoon snack, so it works out just fine. 🙂 I don’t count calories anymore, but it’s good to be aware of what you’re eating!

Back to work on the business! See you for dinner!

Edited to Add: Since Kath requested photos of my little wieners, here are a few of my favorites:

Maggie is a piebald dachshund, which means she is a tri-color. They are really rare and expensive as puppies, but we got her a rescue. I can’t believe someone would pay $1500 for a puppy that they toss out after just 2 years! James Bond is a German shepherd and dachshund mix… he is so funny looking and sweet! He was a rescue as well.
