Our little puppy Moe partially tore his ACL in both of his back legs and had surgery on December 23. It has only been 5 days and he seems to be coming along very well. He will get his stitches out in 2 weeks and will be fully functional in 9 weeks. Keeping this active one and a half year old puppy quiet is going to be a challenge so lots of cage time is a must. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
While looking through some of my favorite blogs the other day I saw that Lori Ann Corelis from The Spotted Hare was drying oranges for decorations on her tree. I just loved how they looked, so I decided to give them a try. I had tangerines that were a little past their prime and an extra Christmas tree that usually just has lights on it every year. As I was slicing the oranges I found that I needed to slice mine little thicker due to the squishy factor of the overly ripe oranges, so I might need to bake them a little bit longer. I can't wait to see how they turn out, I will post piccies later when they are on the tree. I have posted the recipe below if you would like to give it a try.
Orange Slice Decorations
Preheat over to 200 degrees
Place thinly sliced oranges on a foil lined cookie sheet
Bake for 1 hour and then turn to other side
Bake for an additional 1/2 hour to 1 hour (keep checking so they don't burn)
Hang from heavy duty string and place on tree.
