Very Super Cool Greeting Cards

I have an old dog. Her name is Toast and she is a 15 year old blind and deaf Pug. So it's no surprise that I love these greeting cards, as they feature old dogs.
Sue Rostvold and husband Allan Little launched their greeting card company in November of 2005. They have a wonderful assortment of holiday and just plain greeting cards to choose from.
The photographs by Sue are just incredible and I also love the quotes. Inside the cover featuring a Basset Hound the card reads: "A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself."
The cards are printed on uncoated, 100% post consumer recycled paper. When compared side-by-side with coated, mass-produced, 30% recycled card stock, our cards consume 20% less total energy and 7.5% less solid waste.
The cards are available online and at select stores. Check them out:

1 lb dark turkey meat, ground in food processor or chopped

½ head garlic, minced
2 T ginger, minced
3 T olive or canola oil

Can coconut milk
2 inch chunk of tamarind, boil 1 cup water and pour over tamarind. Let sit until cool enough to loosen tamarind and mix with water. Squeeze and discard seeds
1 t hot chili powder
1 T salt
2 T coriander
2 T cumin
2 T tumeric
Handful cilantro, stems removed and chopped
1 can chick peas, drained
