Please Pass A Drumstick

"Love is like a goes where it pleases and it pleases wherever it goes."

Just a few bits and pieces today.
I have wanted to try making these chocolate-covered pretzels, and today I finally did.
I used short pretzel rods instead of long ones, and they turned out looking a little like a drumstick.
First, you coat the bottom part of the pretzel with carmel. Roll in rice crispie cereal, coat with melted chocolate and then I decided to sprinkle mine with heath pieces. They are crunchy and a drumstick : )

In other news, Timothy and I will begin allergy shots on Tuesday. We went for the testing last week, and what an experience. My initial testing was so highly reactive the doctor didn't want to continue for fear I'd have a bad reaction. As I explained how difficult it was for me to make this appointment, he reluctantly agreed to finish the test, using the weakest concentration he could. Well.........I had a reaction. As soon I as I felt better, Tim had a reaction. Needless to say, we have some whopping allergies. Getting the shots is a demanding commitment, but I am praying it will be worth it for both of us. Did you know that I never had one symptom until after I turned 40?

Pumpkin had her spaying surgery on Thursday, and is she a little trooper. While she was under the anesthesia, the vet said it was a good time to remove an errant dewclaw, hence the little sock on her leg.

Here Pumpkin is all buttoned down.....outside her bed. Her little hippo toy is nice and cozy inside, however.

Tomorrow may find me browsing the local Farmer's Market or maybe sewing a stitch or two. There's weeds waiting for me and pots ready for a feeding.
Whatever I do, I'll think of you.

Hi Amy, Those pretzels look so yummy. I think I'll get the makings for them next grocery day....I know my husband and son would love 'em. They love pretzels anyway and then to add chocolate to them! Next thing I know we'll be having to put them in little baggies and smuggle into the movies! LOL

Oh, those pretzels look delicious!
I'm sorry about your allergies. I do know what it's like believe me. Hope the shots work wonders for you and your Son.

Poor little Pumpkin! I hope she is feeling better soon!

Hi Amy. Those pretzels look delicious. I've never tried that. I hope the shots work for both of you and enjoy your week at the farmer's markets. Good to read your post. Take care and give Pumpkin a little hug for me. Poor baby, but what a trooper as you say.

Oooh those pretzels look so good, I could go for one right about now.

You are so brave to get the shots. This is why I haven't gone through testing but if we were to stay here I was going to give in. My DH didn't have any allergies until after he was in in 40s--interesting. Pumpkin is recuperating from surgery; she is such a cutie. Have fun at Farmer's Market!

What are you allergic to? I hope it's not chocolate covered pretzels. :)
