  1. TDX Tortellini Salad

    March 4, 2012 by myeye

    Those of you that attend tracking tests know that the host club puts out food at the end of the test.  After six or eight hours in the brisk air (our TD and TDX tests are in January and February), everyone is starving.  For the TDX spread after this February’s test, I made a tortellini salad.  It was a big hit so I thought I’d share.  It’s only relationship to dogs is that I served it at a dog event (well . . .  and I think my dogs would eat it).

    20 oz. of Buitoni fresh three cheese tortellini (this batch is made with whole wheat tortellini, but there is also plain white or mixed spinach and white available).  Cook per package directions and drain very well

    In a large bowl add:

    1 TBLSP chopped pimento

    1 16 oz. can salad black olives, sliced

    1 medium crown fresh broccoli cut into tiny flowerets

    2 green onions finely sliced

    The cooked, drained tortellini

    Ranch dressing to taste (about 3/4 Cup)

    Add anything else you might like — green olives instead of black, chopped fresh carrots, tomato . . .

    Toss gently, cover tightly, chill for at least 4 hours


  2. Tennessee Mud Herding

    Even though the fields are under water, Susan and Cheryl were out herding with Chase.  Here are today’s photos.  I love them!

    Lambs have springs for legs — go lambie!  go Chase!

    This is a hard hold.  The sheep can escape 180 degrees.  The Chaseman is up to it.

    The goal is:  Keep them together.

    What an elegant shot — lovely, Cheryl.

    Anne just sent this photo.  Holmes helped her dad babysit for the children last night.  He was such a well-behaved boy.

    Hugs to my handsome boy!
