Breakfast of Champions and Lily Update

During the week my breakfast usually consists of Special K Protein Plus cereal with assorted fresh or dried fruits, oatmeal or a homemade smoothie.   But the weekends are a different story.  There is nothing like a hardy breakfast to start a busy weekend.

When The Husband asked what I wanted for breakfast I knew I wanted something made with spicy Wally sausages and tomatoes (we have a lot of them for some reason).  If you have never had the spicy breakfast patties from Walmart you are missing out on some spicy goodness.  They have just the right amount of heat to take your breakfast from ho hum to wow.  The Husband renders the fat off them and pats up any excess so as not to create an artery clogging morning eye opener.

So here is what he made me this morning:

A spinach, tomato, sausage and cheese frittata.  Yummy goodness!

Lily Update:

Lily went to the vet for a check up yesterday and she is doing great!  The swelling on her stump is pretty much gone and is just draining a little now.  She is still on an antibiotic flush along with oral and topical as well.  The tubes will stay in until at least the end of next week.  But she is almost back to her old self, moving around with ease, pain free.

What a tough dog she is......honestly last Thursday (17th) I did not think she was going to make it through the night.  The Husband was away and I spent that night cradling her on the floor as we both tried to sleep.  If it was time, it was time I thought.  I got her to the vet the next morning and had The Husband cut his trip short. She really has a will to go on and we will do our best to give her every chance.
