    Panda and Tiger Imposters

    I saw this little news clip and I just had to show someone.

    An Asian zoo has dyed chow dogs and golden retrievers to resemble panda bears and tigers in order to attract more visitors.

    I don't know how they did it, but it looks adorable!! Ya'll know I love me some dogs! :)

    What I Did This Weekend--Pie!

    So, on Sunday we all went up to my grandparent's house for dinner. My aunt usually doesn't cook, but when she does--it is the biz-nazz!! I looove when auntie R cooks!!

    Anyways, she also brought all the makings for a sweet potatoe pie and to top it off: She gave me my own personal lesson! So now I know how to make "Potatoe Pie", baby! It's actually a verrry simple recipe, but a huge accomplishment for me.

    Here's my very proud uncooked creation:
    (By the way, the crust isn't made from scratch. It's Marie Calendars.)

    Nothing was measured out. We just had to keep tasting it until it was just right. I'm prepping the oven right now. There's no set time on the oven either (just 350 degrees). My aunt instructed me that when you start smelling it, it's almost ready. Then once it rises up and then falls back down, it's done. We'll see how well I follow these simple directions later this afternoon...
