happy birthday mel

Our dog Mel had a birthday this week.

Since we adopted/rescued Mel, we are not sure of his exact age or birthday, so we decided to make the day we brought him home his official "I Gotcha Birthday".
Last Thanksgiving weekend we visited the Yonkers Animal Shelter in Yonkers, NY.  They have over 100 dogs (and some cats too) and after speaking with an adoption coordinator and trainer, they introduced us to several dogs.  Once we met Mel however...the rest was history.
For his birthday I made Mel tuna cupcakes!  He LOVED them.  I adapted the recipe from several I found on the internet.  For those of you who have picky eaters like me, I suggest giving them a try.

Mel's Tuna Cuppies
3 Eggs
1 Can Tuna (I used the kind packed in water, drained)
1 C Flour (I used white, but whole wheat would be great too)

Mix together in a bowl
Pour into 3 ramekins - I used Pam to make sure they came out
Put in microwave on high for about 3-5 minutes
- They will expand like a souffle!

Let cook on wire rack, you can remove from ramekins after a few minutes
Once cool, ice with cream cheese
