Tell Me Thursday - #12

It's Thursday and time to play Tell Me Thursday brought to you by Laura over at Crooks and Crazies! 

1. If you won the lottery (a big one... I'm talking stupid muchos cash) what would you do with the money?

Picture of my dream yard.

After paying off all the loans I would buy a house with a huge yard and have an awesome agility field. Then I'd build a large building big enough to have a full size agility ring in it. And of course buy a cute RV and make the husband drive me and the dogs around in it. 

2. After winning the lottery would you work a day job? If so, what would you do? 

Me, working at the day job!

We've been talking with all of our friends a lot lately what we would do if we had to pick another career - we've settled on opening a brewery/home brew store with a pet store and doggie daycare and baby daycare next door. Yep, totally and completely random - we just basically took all of our interests and threw them into one complex and then one of our friends is pregnant so we decided to throw a daycare in there as well. I love what I do now but it's really stressful to be a government researcher and constantly worrying about elections and how they might affect your work. 

3. Do you have any auxiliary dogs? Auxiliary dogs are dogs that are not essential to your main purpose (usually tiny, but not always). If you don't have an auxiliary dog what might you choose?

Picture of the cutest sleeping puppy, ever, our little Alpha sprout - the auxiliary dog.

Not sure if Alpha counts as an auxiliary dog or not. She's the smallest and doesn't do agility but she's a total lap dog. She always has to be snuggling with someone and it is adorable. If she can't figure out how to get onto my lap she will bark at me until I make space for her. 

4. Do you have a favorite crock pot recipe (or other recipe) you can share?

Ummm.. what is this thing you call a crock pot? And what are these recipe things? I have a kitchen that I occasionally try to use but then the smoke detector usually starts going off and then the husband yells at me to get away from said kitchen. This becomes a major problem when the husband is traveling. I tried to buy some turkey with cheese sausages thinking I could easily grill them (grilling doesn't look that difficult on TV!). But then I put the sausages on the grill and discovered I had no idea how to use a grill. So I put them in a pan on the stove and of course got distracted. Came back 10 minutes later expecting the sausages to be burnt - but instead discovered that turkey cheese sausages had cooked themselves!!! Apparently as the sausage get hot the cheese kind of explodes and turns the sausage all by itself!!! WHOOHOOO - making turkey and cheese sausage Chef Steffi proof! YES!! Anyway - this is possibly the longest non crock-pot recipe ever so I'll be reading everyone else's blog and giving these recipes to my husband to cook for me. Yum! 


  1. Oh my, I got tickled at the idea of the exploding sausages. LOL! You crack me up.

    Girl I'm with you on the RV to drive the humans and dogs around in. Word.

  2. Your "win the lotto" plan is pretty much identical to mine. :o) Well, minus the brewery and all that. I figure I'd just run classes out of my gigantic brand new training facility. lol

    I'm jealous that Alpha is a lap dog. Kaiser is getting more affectionate as he ages, but he has never enjoyed cuddle time. A few nights ago he laid on me for almost 10 minutes and I almost fainted dead away.

  3. Steffi, You always make me smile!!! That is one awesome machine at work! Pretty impressive!!


I love comments - so please leave some :)
