Skinny Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe and My Favorite Sock Hoarder

We’re fighting a whole new battle in our house lately.


Lily has recently decided to become a sock hoarder.

We’re not sure wear she is hoarding them, but she definitely has about 10 pairs of my running socks hidden away somewhere, along with a lot of Andy’s long winter socks.

Once I find the stash, I’m going to use the “dog shaming” method and do this to her and take a picture for you guys:

ImageI have noticed that I am missing a lot of socks, but didn’t know for sure who the culprit was (I had a pretty good idea), until Lily starting dropping off little presents for me during the last couple of days.


Thanks Lil, I’ve been wanting one of Andy’s nasty old socks. You’re a gem.

The girl is relentless.


After about 10 minutes of refusing to play with the sock, Lily gave up and left the sock behind.


 I threw the sock in the laundry basket and about 5 hours later..


She and the sock were back with a vengeance.

I give up.

  1. Hahahah your dog is SO CUTE! My cousin’s dog used to eat socks so often that it had to have them surgically removed from its stomach! Regardless, it’s pretty adorable 🙂

  2. My dog is also a sock hoarder. He doesn’t actually hide them anywhere because I usually catch him beforehand. But he LOVES his socks. Any time I get the laundry basket out, he sneaks over, steals one, and then runs away as fast as he can. It’s pretty hilarious. That chicken look great! My favorite “skinny” dish is chicken parmesan.

  3. hahahh those are the best pictures of Lily, thats so funny she does that with socks! my dog just grabs shoes or pillows anytime someone comes in the house. veryyy annoying when your running late for work and a shoe is out in the backyard.

  4. I could sit on the dog shaming website for hours and just pee my pants. I love it because I have a dachshund at my parents house and most of the things that are on the dog shaming website are things that he does/has done. I lose it. It’s always good for brightening up my day 🙂 Can’t wait for you to find her stash!

  5. Hahahahaha. My parents have a golden retriever and she is the exact same way. She lived with my brother one summer and the guys would come home to find all of their socks missing. What is with dogs and socks???

    I love taking heavier dishes and lightening them up. Connor & I make a lot of DIY pizzas, so we are in control of the crust/dough and cheese amount.
