Maddie <3's Scooby

by Meghann on February 25, 2011

Poor Scooby.


All he wants to do is sleep


And all Maddie wants to do is play.


Can you see that “Which way did he go? Which way did he go?” look in her eyes?


(what she doesn’t know is he is is hiding upstairs under my brother’s bed. ;))

Maddie’s a crazy one, but I’m pretty sure Scooby loves her anyways. Besides he needs a little excise anyways. πŸ˜‰

It was nice working from my parents’ house this morning. Especially since it meant I could have lunch with this guy.


“Meghann, I’m eating! Stop taking photos”


Ben works as a mechanic at my Dad’s office. Hence, the grease stained clothes and hands. I promise he isn’t always that dirty!

Food is always a creative obstacle in my parents’ house. Their random fridge forced a random lunch. A random, but delicious lunch. πŸ™‚


I originally wanted hummus and carrots for lunch, but quickly discovered the hummus I had been eyeing in the fridge had expired in October 2010. Yikes! Instead I dumped a can of chickpeas in the food processor and created my own little dip with some paprika, salt, and pepper. The dip ended up being pretty good.


On the side I had a handful of pretzels with a drizzle of mustard. I’m not sure why, but pretzels with mustard have really been on my mind lately. I actually went back for a few more once my plate was done.


Finally, some random cheese slices to complete the meal.


I’m a fan of random meals. I’m also a fan of meals that take 5 minutes to throw together and require no pre-planning or cooking. πŸ˜‰


Time to head back to O-Town!

Those pretzels look completely amazing and i love maddie’s crazed “WHERE’D HE GO!!?” look! My dog is like that in the dog run from the minute she gets there until the second we drag her out. She is a energy terror πŸ™‚

Sometimes random lunches are my favorite! My mom always buys a big tub of hummus and by the time I want to eat it, it’s always expired (since I don’t live at home anymore). I never thought if just making my own, smart thinking πŸ™‚

13 Courtney @ The Granola Chronicles February 25, 2011 at 2:56 pm

Love the addition of cheese!
I’m intrigued by the drizzle of mustard on pretzels. Although it’s not completely crazy, since they do sell mustard-flavored pretzels!

14 Amanda (tomboy that wears makeup) February 25, 2011 at 3:18 pm

LOL, I think it’s hot when my guy is all dirty from working… (Maybe that’s cuz 90% of the time, we both work side by side in our studio….
I love random meals too…. Like right now, I am eating peas, tofu and onions in a little stirfry I whipped together since we don’t really have much food in the place. The pretzels and mustard look goood! I might have to get some.

It would be really interesting to get Maddie and Clyde together and see which one ran out of energy first! That would be a great night of sleep for everyone involved I’m sure!!

I’ve never thought to put mustard on crunchy pretzels. The only way I eat crunchy pretzels is covered in chocolate usually πŸ™‚

Whats on Maddies neck? Is that a shock collar or a doggie camera?

21 Meghann February 25, 2011 at 6:29 pm

It’s a shock collar for the electric fence my parents have

I love mustard with pretzels – I love mustard so much I have about 15 different kinds in my fridge as we speak. Seems I am a bit of a condiment whore!

And you want to know what love is? My husband driving 70 minutes out of our way on a trip so that I could go to the mustard museum in Wisconsin – now that’s love!

And I got him a t-shirt that says Poupon-U that makes me smile every time he wears it. πŸ˜€

Have a great weekend Meghann! πŸ˜€

It’s a shock collar for the electric fence my parents have. This way she stays in the yard. πŸ™‚

28 chelsey @ clean eating chelsey February 25, 2011 at 6:44 pm

My parents used to have one of those for their dog. They never needed to use the “shocker” though. He was so afraid of it that when it was around his neck but “off”, he was an angel!

Expired hummus???? I just don’t understand that. I always make my own and even though I’m the only one who eats it, the stuff disappears waaaaay to fast πŸ˜‰

38 Caroline February 26, 2011 at 5:45 pm

Geez, Maddie is so pretty. My JR does the same to our older dog. Or did the same, before the older dog got sick and Ollie has somehow caught on that she doesn’t want to be bothered. You and Maddie are totally the reason that I wanted jack russell, by the way. I’ve never regretted it!
