I watched the Arkansas vs LSU game on Friday. I was disappointed that we lost, but I'm a die-hard fan and am still proud of the season we had this year. We will still have a bowl game and a 10-2 season is definitely something to talk about. I hope Alabama gets to play LSU in the national championship game, and I hope they win this game!
Maximus is acclimating well to his new home. He has been to the vet twice in the 1 week and 1 day that he has lived with us, and is thriving. The first visit was to ensure that he was indeed healthy after flying from the breeder, and today he had to get some booster shots. He is such a good boy. He never barks, and only whines when he needs to get out of his kennel in the morning to go outside to take care of business. He's doing well with housebreaking and getting used to walking on a leash. We were having issues with him chewing. He was becoming fond of the furniture, and we really wanted to nip that behavior in the bud. We got him some rawhides and he is in heaven! We just love him so much, he's the sweetest puppy. We totally got lucky!

This morning, I made bacon and scrambled eggs with smoked chipotle gouda cheese. Oh my goodness, y'all....you have to get some of this cheese. Our eggs were SO good! The cheese added a nice smoky flavor and just a tiny bit of heat, not much at all. We will definitely be having them again!
We've been enjoying our Thanksgiving left-overs immensely! Marc took the last of the turkey to work yesterday for dinner, and he didn't feel like having stuffing again today, so I took our leftover mashed potatoes and corn and decided to use them to make Shepherd's pie. It's such a great stick-to-your-ribs kind of meal, and super easy to make. I browned 2 pounds of ground beef with one large chopped onion, seasoned with garlic, salt & pepper, stir in the corn and 2 cans of campbell's cream of mushroom soup, pour into a baking dish, and top with mashed potatoes. I baked it for 20 min and served it. It's really simple, and really tasty. I had some of my homemade applesauce and cucumber salad with mine, and now I need a nap!
I hope y'all have a great week! I'll be getting my Christmas decorations down soon so I can get the house all set up. I love decorating my tree and making the house festive. So much fun!
