super simple dog treats.

I posted this super easy recipe for yummy peanut butter dog treats last year and it seemed to be a hit so I thought I would post it again this year! Go make some and make your furry friends happy!
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup low-fat milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk. Add wet mixture to dry, and mix well.
Turn out dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out shapes. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container.

This past Sunday I needed to get out of the house for a little bit and get some fresh air. Day and I bundled up and headed to a nearby park. It was 9:30 am and we were the only ones in the park. Perhaps because it was a bit chilly! It was perfectly wonderful.  We wandered around, checked out the awesome ice formations on the river, fell on our butts hiking down a big hill, laughed, skipped rocks, checked out the bird houses to see if anyone was home, and took in the beauty of nature around us. When we got home we sipped on huge cups of hot chocolate filled with marshmallows and snuggled by the fireplace.  It was a perfect Sunday.
