This silly dog salad is the first recipe I ever made, with my mother and my friend Kathleen when we were six or seven years old. It's from my "Betty Crocker's Cookbook for Boys and Girls", which I have used previously, with great results (see here). Stella put six of them together while Oliver tried diligently to take them apart.
You can do the eggs and the bacon both at 350°. While you are enjoying those, put the oven up to 375° and
bake the pumpkin rolls. Convenient.
Here are our friends Jason and Abby. This morning we got to hear all the great news they had to share. Getting married very soon! Closing on a house! Successful Airbnb-ers! And lots more! Congratulations, you two!
