Pasta Mia and The Fast Growing Puppy

3 Feb

Hey guys! 

Last night we made a great pasta dinner!  I think we have gotten in the tradition on making a big batch of pasta on Wednesday.  It is typically the same every Wednesday, except with a little variation!  Before I get to dinner, if you haven’t entered my Larabar Giveaway, click here!

Okay, on to dinner.  Whole wheat noodles + loads of spinach + lean ground turkey + garlic pasta sauce + 2 huge organic tomatoes + 3/4 organic red onion + 4-6 tbsp minced garlic (I’m addicted) + lots of crushed red peppers + natural parmesan cheese on top = an AMAZING meal!



Simply Amaze-a-bells!


Before dinner, we were talking to Keith’s Mom and she wanted to see some updated pics of Quincy.  We took a few pics and when we uploaded them on my computer, we couldn’t believe what we saw.  Keep in mind, we’ve only have him for one month.

Quincy about a Month later (don’t worry the Husband is super strong and would never drop the little man)!

Quincy 2 2 11 3

I’m 5’5 and he is catching up quick (yes, I love baggy sweats when I get home from work)



We still think he is so little, but after taking these pics, we are starting to realize how quick he is growing up.  I decided I needed to take lots more pictures of him since he is gaining about three to four pounds a week.  Before the Husband and I know it he will be a big adult dog!  For those of you who don’t know, Quincy is an Australian Shepherd, he was born November 13th and is our little baby!  : )


That’s it for now!  I hope you all have great plans for the day!  We are getting so close to the weekend!  Yay!

    We do a big batch of pasta at least every other week for a dinner. Makes great leftovers for lunch and another dinner later in the week. Plus its such a healthy and balanced meal option.

    He’s so cute! In the last picture you posted I thought he looked really big compared to that little tiny puppy you showed us in January. The pasta is brilliant. I make some and it lasts for days. Noodles are one of the best leftovers.
