Moody Monday: Dog Park Picnic

Why hello Monday, is that you…AGAIN? Okay, well I least I just had a beautiful weekend to hold me over. This weekend was filled with picnics, the farmer’s market, and live music so I can’t complain too much.

Today’s Moody Monday is about picnics (and how much I freaking love them). But to be more exact, it’s about the picnic I had yesterday. As you probably know if you’ve ever read my blog previously, I have a really really cute boxer puppy that has more energy in a day than I have in an year. Luckily, Bloomington has an amazing dog park that backs up to a lake with lots of dog friendly trails.

Anyways, so yesterday I made up a few yummy veggie sandwiches stocked full of farmer’s market produce and carrot slaw and we headed to the park. We took our puppy for a hike and had a beautiful picnic out in the woods. It was a perfect ending to an eventful weekend.

    OOhhh! I LOOOOOVE boxers. We had Brutus, a wonderful, darling boxer boy, and even though he died 5 years ago, we still miss him and talk about him every day. Especially now because we have a spaz of an Airedale. Yes, I still remember the youthful boxer energy. He’ll calm down by the time he’s around 2 years old. BTW, Airedales are even worse.

    What do you put on your veggie sandwiches? I am always looking for new ideas!

      Oh! I love experimenting with my sandwiches. In addition to putting on every vegetable I can find in the house (lettuce, spinach, avocado, pepper, scallions, tomatoes, shredded carrots), I like to add (not all on the same sandwich, of course) hummus, pestos, carrot slaw, etc.

      Do you have any suggestions? I am also always looking for something new!
