This dog has fleas!! But, he’s still freakin’ adorable!
Ugh. Fleas were not what I wanted to come home to today.
We use Frontline on Murphy every month, but, unfortunately, it’s just not working. Maybe Murphy got a bad case of super fleas? Thankfully, he doesn’t seem to mind and hasn’t been scratching, but Mal and I are definitely not thrilled with the situation, especially since we can’t banish our dog from the house. There will be no pug in our bed tonight!
We called the vet earlier this evening, so we’re bringing Murphy in tomorrow to get a pill that should rid him of the fleas. Poor pup.
After dealing with the flea fiasco, Mal and I spent the evening at my in-laws’ house for dinner. Mal’s dad made his delicious “Out West Chicken” on the grill.
The marinade for the chicken is actually quite easy to make: just combine 1/2 cup olive oil with a packet of dry Italian seasoning and 1/4 cup of lemon juice. For best results, allow the chicken to marinate overnight in the refrigerator and grill on medium-low heat. Easy and delicious!
While my father-in-law fired-up the grill, Mal, my mother-in-law, and I hung out on the porch and chatted. We also shucked some corn.
Munched on crackers.
And drank Italian Blood Orange Soda from Trader Joe’s.
This stuff is delicious!
The mosquitoes started to get pretty bad as soon as the sun set, so we ate dinner inside.
We started with shrimp cocktail.
Then, freshly grilled Out West Chicken. I enjoyed a flavorful, moist drumstick.
And a piece of corn-on-the-cob.
We finished the meal with salad (like the French do). I drizzled a little peppercorn dressing on top of mine.
It’s going to be a late night. I have so much to do!!!
