I am a sucker for lost dogs.

Don’t worry, I found Sargent’s home. 


And this little snack was DELICIOUS.


A green pepper, stuffed with brown rice, lentils, and two tablespoons of balsamic vin dressing, topped off with {horseradish} hummus and baked at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.  So cute and compact.


Off to read a book!

    Oh my gosh! Sargent is so precious! I’m glad he found his way home.

  • Erin October 22, 2012, 8:34 pm

    OMG Sargent is PRECIOUS!!! How far away from home was he?!?!

    • Caitlin October 22, 2012, 8:40 pm

      not far at all. i opened my door and he crawled right in and the first house we knocked on was his!

  • Courtney @ Journey of a Dreamer October 22, 2012, 8:49 pm

    Aw- glad you found his home… I don’t think your dogs could share anymore of your attention!

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More October 22, 2012, 9:08 pm

    Yum! that looks delicious! We made stuffed peppers first and my mom boiled the peppers first…I don’t think I liked that as well as I would just BAKING the pepper.

  • Lauren October 22, 2012, 9:24 pm

    These lost dogs are drawn to you! SO sweet. Glad you found his home.

    While Sargent is indeed adorable, I have to comment on Henry’s choice of reading/nomming material! That is a fantastic book! Kevin Henkes is a wonderful author (from my home state of Wisconsin!) I’d love to hear what else you’re reading to him!

  • Courtney October 22, 2012, 10:23 pm

    That dog is precious! Kudos to you for returning him to his owners 🙂

  • Kellie October 22, 2012, 10:31 pm

    That looks delish! Just curious, did you hear about the study finding arsenic in rice? What are your thoughts?

  • Anne @strawberryjampackedlife October 22, 2012, 10:35 pm

    Glad I’m not the only one. My husband keeps telling me that down here in Tennessee, people just let their dogs roam, so I shouldn’t try to pick up the same number of “lost dogs” that I used to in Boston.

  • Lindsay @ Fuel My Family October 22, 2012, 10:38 pm

    that pepper looks amazing! That may inspire my dinner tomorrow night…

  • Nicole October 22, 2012, 11:36 pm

    Woah hummus lids! You’re an absolute genius!

  • CJ @ Fill the Well October 22, 2012, 11:39 pm

    Mmmm books. Henry has good taste! 🙂

  • Katie @ Soulshine and Sassafras October 22, 2012, 11:46 pm

    That dog is ADORABLE!

  • Lesley T. October 22, 2012, 11:52 pm

    I would’ve gone all Elmyra from Tiny Toons and kept Sarge for my very own–sooo cute. I adore bullies!

    And Henry has quite a hunger for knowledge. :p

  • Morgan October 23, 2012, 5:49 am

    Love that dog!

    Is the use of curly brackets a “thing” in blog writing now? I have to ask.

  • Nina October 23, 2012, 7:40 am

    Sargent is THE CuTEST!!

  • James October 23, 2012, 7:41 am

    That stuffed pepper looks great. I’ve been making something similar with quinoa, but didn’t think to use humus. So much healthier than the cheese I’ve been using. 🙂

  • Reenie October 23, 2012, 7:49 am

    * Adorable pics of Henry
    * Sarg is sooo cute ~ glad you found his home.

  • Lauren @ The Homeostatic Mindset October 23, 2012, 7:50 am

    Mmmmmm! That stuffed pepper looks redonkulous!!!

  • Katie D. October 23, 2012, 8:00 am

    I have a recipe that I think you’ll like – something to get you out of your food rut!! Lemon Rice soup!

    3 cups veggie broth
    2 – 3 oz uncooked rice (or can use about 1/2 cup cooked (I eyeball it!))
    4 TBS lemon juice
    2 eggs
    salt n peppa

    Bring broth to a boil, add rice and turn down to simmer. If using uncooked rice, put lid on and simmer for 20 minutes. If using cooked rice, continue with the recipe! While rice cooks (or if cooked) beat 2 eggs in small bowl with lemon juice. Once rice is cooked, add 1 cup of hot broth/rice to eggs, stirring continuously. Add egg/lemon/rice/broth mixture back into pot, stirring to combine and heating through, being careful not to boil. Season to taste.

    Very easy and we always have the stuff on hand for this soup. Can also add carrots, celery, etc to bulk it up a bit.

    • Caitlin October 23, 2012, 10:41 am

      Oht hnks!

  • Eliza October 23, 2012, 8:51 am

  • Kristy @ Kristy's Health Revolution October 23, 2012, 8:58 am

    OF COURSE that dog’s name is Sargent. haha.

  • Natalie @ Free Range Human October 23, 2012, 9:01 am

    That dog is so cute!! I’m in love 🙂

  • Beks October 23, 2012, 9:18 am

    Never too early to get them hooked on reading!

  • Amanda Hollenbaugh October 23, 2012, 10:01 am

    Hah! Dog looks unenthusiastic, but very cute. Yay for helping lost pups!

  • Cara @ I Don't Believe in Diets October 23, 2012, 10:10 am

    hahaha you do find a lot of stray animals. haha. Glad you are looking out for them. Several times the husband and I tried to catch the animal so we could take it home but they have escaped us. Strange. I just have to hope they made it home eventually.

  • noelle October 23, 2012, 12:43 pm

    Thank goodness you found him! Bulldogs are one of the breeds that get stolen. I bet his parents were relieved.

  • Kim October 23, 2012, 5:43 pm

    aw I love that you picked up a lost dog. And he’s so cute!!

  • Lisa @ Jogging on Coffee October 23, 2012, 6:44 pm

    I’m so glad you found Sargent and helped him find his way home 🙂

  • Julie October 25, 2012, 9:50 am
