pretzel night

last week, i surprised robbie with soft pretzel night courtesy of this recipe from a beautiful mess.  they were so good...we may have to make pretzel night a regular thing.

pretzel-2
we whipped up their suggested dipping sauces (honey-nut & raspberry butters) and also had some dijon & heated up some queso because we (...or i) secretly love jar cheese. and we sipped on root beer to get the full bavarian effect.

archibald could tell we were onto something...he inched closer to get a better look at what was going on. we like to think he was like, "uhhh, dad...dogs like pretzels too, you know."

pretzel-9
...and we maybe let him have a bite. out of robbie's mouth no less. i'll let you decide if that makes us terrible or awesome dog parents. ; )

    The dog of a friend of mine stares me every time
    I eat something in front of it like I-hope-that-your-food-will-drop-on-the-floor-so-that-I-can-eat-it! It's kinda scary :D

  5. I LOVE soft pretzels.... and definitely don't eat them enough. I never thought to make my own! They are one of those things I only eat out and about. Gotta have a pretzel night. Also, as a dog owner, it is TOTALLY ok to feed your dog nibblins. I do all the time, but maybe not out of my mouth. ha! :)

  21. Beautiful blog!

    Are you interested in sharing about dealing with Robbie's cystic fibrosis?

    The reason I am asking is because my nephew has just been diagnosed. It has been very tough.
