Adopt, Don’t Shop…

I’m participating in NaBloPoMo, National Blog Posting Month, and am writing a post every day this month.  I made it to day 25 and almost broke my streak.  Almost all the way to the end of the month and I thought today was going to be the day I failed to get a post published.  But if ever this was a good reason to miss a day, this boy would be a good one:

Adopt, Don't Shop!

This is Kohl.  He’s a young pooch, some sort of lab/retriever mix picked up by animal control.  He wasn’t doing so well in the shelter, really shutting down, refusing to stand or walk. He needed a foster home and in a hurry. While I was out grocery shopping tonight, I got the phone call that he needed sprung from the joint.  I rounded up some help in the form of my favorite teenager and headed across town to the shelter, long closed with the foster coordinator patiently waiting for me….

Crumpkin Pumpcanberry Bread | In Johnna's Kitchen

Crumpkin Pumpcanberry Bread (Cranberry Pecan Pumpkin Bread)

Earlier this week when I made the first batch of this bread, I asked on Instagram and Facebook for ideas to name the bread.  Cranberry Pecan Pumpkin Bread seemed like a long, descriptive name with no pizazz. I wanted a snappy name, something sassy and spunky that would encourage you to make this bread, catch…

Healthy. What Does That Mean?

Just a quick post tonight, so I don’t break my writing streak for National Blog Posting Month. I’m writing a post each day this month.  My post tonight isn’t lengthy, it’s not incredibly cerebral nor delectable. It’s an observation.
