Shrimp and Pancetta Spaghetti

Shrimp & Pancetta Spaghetti

Ask my family what their favorite Seafood is?  Shrimp, they’ll cheer!  Ask my family what their favorite starch is? Pasta, they’ll cheer!  Ask my family what their favorite meat is?  Bacon they’ll cheer!  Ask the doggies what’s their favorite?  And they’ll cheer, EVERYTHING!

Poor Summer thinks she’s a Circus dog, until she looses her balance and tips over.

McGyver and I couldn’t stop laughing!


Summer dog finally succeeded, but then she thought every noodle was for her.


Becca dog had something different in mind (see those greedy little eyes?).


I couldn’t go wrong with Shrimp, Pancetta and Spaghetti.
