hey ya all dearles :-)
I just wanted to wish you all the best for 07, that all what you are wishing to me, might just return immediately to you...chuckle :-) and oups...I have to describe a receipt which I just saw at Migros-magazin here, yesss I just took it out as an orginal receipt...but please go for it and adapt it at your ease and bloodtype, but must be honest...it's just awesome.....and so variable....easy to create
a wunnefull supper :-)
ok, here we go:
take a backingform with a 24cm. diametre ,3 cups of rice (loncorn), 1 yellow & 1 red paprika, one ba-
nana,2apples,one lime 500gr. of chicken cutted,1dl. Sherry,1dl.liqu.cream,2 pinches of cardamom,,2 teasp. of coriandre,,1-2 teasp. of chili,1 teasp. of nutmeg,1/2 teasp. of clovespowder,3 big spoons of freshly grated ginger,2 eggyolks,200gr. Parma-ham, 6 fresh figues, one big spoon of oliveoil,butter,some seasalt, black pepper .
1. cook the rice in salty water and let it get cold;take the peperonis and cut it in little pieces and fry them with a bit butter & oil; and let it get cold; take the banana and the apples and cut em into little pieces,get some limejuice on them and then broil em in a bit of butter,with salt and pepper seasoning it-
take all separately and let em get cold.
2.take the chicken and cook it in the butter and tak the sherry and a bit of lemonjuice, after ca. 3 minutes take some liquid cream and give it to this meat, on a little flame do the restcookings. After all add the peperoni-fruitmix, all the condiments and also the 2 eggyolks.
3.take the ring of the tartspringform and butter it, put it onto a big tartplate and butter the bottom, then just take the first couch of rice on this bottom, after this you'll add the whole mixup of meat and peperonifruitmix, top all with the rest of the rice.
4.close this tartform with aluminiomfoil and get this tarte minimum 5 hours into your fridge, even more if needed because when opening and not having cooled it down enough, it might be that it will break :-(
5. decorate the top of the rice with the parma-ham, add the sliced fresh figues onto top....thats' all :-)
a little tip: for this you might use a dry cidre or a Geuze (a belge ale, or beer) or better a wine of south of France, called a wine*between two seas* or wine of sands, a lovely dry but very fruity white wine-
from Languedoc-Rousillon, or you might take a very dry roséwine from this aerea, or just my ordinary teareceipt given in the *giftthread*...fits also amazingly :-)
have fun in preparing this tart, an excelent supper and surprise in one thing :-) and now up to you to
adapt this to your own bloodtype
bye-bye truly yours Isa
The year is at its end. Much has happened this past year; much good, some sad, lots of change. I am optimistic about next year and all that it may bring. I am especially optimistic when it comes to my health and the choices I continue to make concerning it.
In just a few weeks I will celebrate my sixtieth birthday. That age used to sound very old, but it doesn’t anymore. In fact, I still feel young in many ways even though my body tells me that some things aren’t really so easy to do anymore. But, I do take delight with all the compliments that I have received the past few months because they have been spoken by a variety of people and they say pretty much the same. Everyone compliments my complexion and how healthy I look! Most of the grey hairs have returned to my normal brown and my skin remains wrinkle free. I have great food choices to praise for that! One of those choices is to buy only ORGANIC fruits and vegetables.
I still have a smoothie almost every day and have for many months. The smoothies have changed from a cottage cheese or tofu and flax seed oil based fruit smoothie to a fruit smoothie with celery and romaine lettuce included. The smoothie amounts have also changed from one 16 ounce glass to 2-3 sixteen ounce glasses a day. The smoothies are probably the biggest difference I have made diet-wise this past year.
Salads also make up a large part of my overall daily food intake. That is another big change over the previous years. Sometimes the salad is fairly simple. Most times it is a large meal in its own right with a variety of foods other than just the lettuces, herbs, and spinach. Oftentimes I will add shredded carrots, slice sweet red and green peppers, shredded red and green cabbage, chopped onion, shredded broccoli stems, broccoli florets, pumpkin seeds, sliced or slivered almonds, and about 1/3 cup of pulse. Pulse is a mixture of 23-25 all natural and raw ingredients including fruits, seeds, oils, and vegetables all ground up together and extracted. It adds a nice sweet taste to the salads. Also, I really like the olive oil dressing I make that also incorporates flaxseed oil and grapeseed oil with dry mustard, dill, tarragon, thyme, and garlic powder all blended together.
I have also begun sprouting seeds again. When life gets hectic, I put it off and then the time passes by and I have no sprouts. We had a cold spell in November and the sprouts didn’t do well in the kitchen. Now the temperatures have moderated and another batch of the salad mixture and one of broccoli are in the process of becoming sprouts. I like to add sprouts to my salads and on the rare occasion that I fix a sandwich, I like to add them there too.
Soon some sprouting bags I ordered should arrive. I bought some rye berries, soft red wheat berries, and spelt berries (all organic of course) to sprout and use to make some special breads in my dehydrator. The bags are also good for sprouting the beans such as adzuki. Anyway, they are made of flax so they should last quite a while.
I am having so much fun as I become healthier. There are still health issues that I am dealing with such as my blood pressure refusing to come anywhere near normal. And my morning body temperature is still below 97.0 which indicates that my thyroid isn’t doing its job, and the adrenals are still very low in activity. BUT, I am still feeling so much better now that I have for many years. Those issues will eventually be taken care of and then, watch out world! Can you imagine how I will be feeling when everything is working properly?
Can’t close without making reference to Shadeaux. She is still adorable, energetic, growing rapidly, and follows me like a shadow. We did choose a very appropriate name for her.
Well, this is all for this year. Hope yours has been very good to you and that next year will be even more so. Take care. Until next time………………
Today's oblique strategy when I opened up my greymatter page was "Abandon normal instruments."
In light of my PDA cell phone, purse, and wallet being stolen out of my car in Iowa on Christmas day, I'm going to meditate on this. Everything happens for a reason. I may just not know what this reason is quite yet.
Also stolen out of my purse were the brochures for the IfHI conference which I brought home with the intention to show family and friends. It's so comforting to know that these thieves may be reading this blog right now just as typical readers are! My message to you if you are guilty of violating my familyl's property and my privacy: you'll get your karma, if not from me, from the next person you violate. These things that were of great importance to me were not yours to take. You would be wise to return them to where you found them and never step foot on my family's property in the middle of the night on Christmas Day or any day for that matter again.
But if you were just after my credit cards, hope you had a nice joyride to St. Paul on behalf of Worldperks Visa via your gas station purchase. I'm not afraid of you, whoever you are. Hey, you could come to my home and shoot me and I'd just haunt you for the rest of your life. You would go your entire life without ever sleeping soundly again. As someone who has had a haunting experience once, believe me, ghosts do exist and the ghost of me will be happy to show you.
But chances are you are just a stupid meth head and aren't reading this anyway.
"Scratch a Russian, find a Tartar."
We have a delightful and active new addition to our family by the name of Shadeaux (shadow). We chose a French spelling for her name to go with her as she is a frisky, all black toy poodle. We drove sixty-five miles one way to get her last Sunday through inches of new fallen snow over the icy road. The gloominess of the past couple weeks has changed dramatically.
We all miss Muppet terribly and he left such a void. My husband decided that we did need another dog to love, not as a replacement for Muppet because he can't be replaced, but a little female full of life. So, she is here and keeping all of us very busy. Miss Katie Cat, however, is not pleased with her arrival and hisses at her whenever she is near. I am certain that won’t last for long and that Katie will eventually decide to become friends. Gizmo, one of my African Grey parrots, saw her on my lap and said "Muppet, Muppet" as Muppet is his only word for Dog. Gizmo and the other birds are very content with Shadeaux. Miss Katie is the only one who is very concerned.
We had our Crime Stoppers Christmas party tonight. We had a lovely time and all the foods were so good. I know there were some foods that are absolute avoids and with those I had just a sliver. The beneficials (and there were some) I ate in abundance. Now, well satisfied, I am home for the evening. Also, I will be the new chairman for the coming year, so there is a bit more added to my plate.
Today, December 21, 2006 is the shortest day of the year. Tomorrow the daylight will slowly begin to increase again. Sunrise was at 10:12 a.m. and sunset was at 3:53 p.m. for a total of 5 hours 41 minutes, 22 seconds. Tomorrow’s daylight will increase by a couple seconds over today’s daylight amount. Yesterday’s state high temperature was at Metlakatla and Annette Island. The low temperature for yesterday was -31 at Mag North Pole. Much of the state has been experiencing a large blizzard with lots of snowfall.
The sky is fairly clear tonight and the aurora forecast calls for active northern lights. The forecast never gives an idea of when we might see the aurora borealis and most of the time I miss it. However, some of the photos I have seen recently have shown them to be very bright and active. I love to watch them dance across the sky. Unfortunately, they often do that around 2 or so in the morning when I am fast asleep.
In just a few days it will once again be Christmas. On Christmas Eve the kids come home for the evening for munchies and opening presents. It is the one time during the year when we all or most get together. This is a MOST year as Dawn and her family will not be down from Anchorage. So tomorrow my husband, our new baby puppy, and I will travel to Anchorage to take presents up to them and return with gifts from them for the rest of the family. We did have to wait for a break in the weather to make this trip. We have had to make too many bad weather trips in the past and just didn’t want to do that again now. The roads are still not good, but not as bad as they could be either. At least the whiteout conditions have gone and that should make the trip much more pleasant.
I am continuing to make and drink the green smoothies. I really like the way I feel after drinking all the easily digested blend of fruits and greens. It not only tastes really good, but I enjoy the energy I receive and know that it is doing my body good. It is a very refreshing drink.
Well, I am really tired tonight. The puppy isn’t sleeping well all night yet. She is just eight weeks old. Soon she will get into our nightly sleep habit, too, and then we will all sleep a bit better. So, until next time…………………..
Things are beginning to get back to normal again. Many activities fill each day as we prepare for Christmas. Tonight we attended a Christmas program in which one grandson played a part. There was one song they sang which I particularly enjoyed as it was about living in that town and was sung to the tune of Silver Bells. Unfortunately, there is no information listed as to who wrote these lyrics. I hope you find the lyrics enjoyable too.
When It’s Winter in Nikiski (Ni kiss key)
When it is winter in Nikiski
where the trees grow so tall
And the snow sparkles bright in the sunshine
When it’s winter in Nikiski
we will all have a ball
And out in the thick forest you’ll hear
It’s wintertime in Nikiski,
On the lake, we will skate,
Soon it will be Christmas Day.
In the silent, quiet forest
where the animals roam,
And the bears hibernate for the winter.
Moose are munching, beavers crunching
And a shrew scurries by
As an owl hoots a song from a tree.
Whoo whoo whoo, who are you?
We are the kids from Nikiski
On our way, in our sleigh
Soon it will be Christmas Day.
When the snow piles to the rooftops,
And the temperature drops,
We’ll go home to our warm, cozy houses.
Light the woodstove, make some cookies
Curl up warm by the fire,
And we’ll dream of the day soon to come.
Santa’s here, We will cheer.
It’s Christmas time in Nikiski
With our toys, we will play
Oh, how we love Christmas Day!
The sky has cleared again so the temperature has dropped. On the way home tonight it was 5 degrees. We were able to see the stars and sometime tonight the aurora should be lovely. Maybe we will get a chance to see it.
Daylight has decreased to less than six hours a day and is now slowly crawling downwards to December 22 when it will begin to crawl upwards again. It is fairly dark for the months of December and January. In addition to all the darkness, it is very icy again. We have had some snow this week and it is covering the ice so walking is a bit treacherous and the roads seem to have been polished from the snow as the light winds brush it across the highways. It was fairly pleasant for a few days and we even had some rain. The rain, of course, froze on the roads and walkways turning to more ice. Then it snowed. So far, it has been a fairly typical winter of weird weather.
Hope all is going well with you and yours. Until next time………………..
Well, I've decided it's time to blog. I've had this story on my mind for quite some time and really need to tell it because I consider it sort of a "sign" from something beyond me to ease up on animal flesh consumption.
For a while, even though I craved meat a lot during the master cleanse, I noticed something very interesting about my body when I listened to it: during my body's waning moon (which coincides pretty nicely with the true moon right now) I realized that my body has been trying to clean itself out. It needs a lot of green leafy veggies for magnesium and chlorophyll, and lots of water to help keep things moving. Acid forming foods also tend to worsen PMS because they seem to leach these precious minerals from the body in order to process them and neutralize their effects. I think that during this time the body is trying to get rid of all the nasty things dead animal flesh accumulate in the GI tract and blood.
So, as this waning moon progressed last month, I decided that perhaps in this phase I could certainly become vegetarian EXCEPT I could not come to terms with my love for fish. One or two weeks before leaving for Europe, I ventured into Whole Foods on a Sunday evening and asked the fishmonger what he recommended. There was a fresh batch of pot-caught cod glistening on the ice that had apparently been flown in that morning. Naturally, as this is a beneficial food for As, how could I refuse FRESH (not frozen) cod? Cod is not my favorite fish, by any means, but it does have a lot of good things in it.
Well, I got a little busy these two nights and finally decided it was time to cook the fish on Tuesday evening. So, I was standing there with the fish, beginning to unwrap it from the paper over the sink, and when I lifted the fish off the paper, there was a WORM on the paper!!! IT WAS ALIVE!!!!!
Luckily, I was not alone in the house, as this was somewhat disturbing to me. The girl I was about to go to Europe with was upstairs. I called her to come down ASAP to show her the worm. She said, "you have to take it back!" and I was like, "I know, but I don't want to leave the house!"
So, we piled into the car (it was almost 9 pm and I was HUNGRY, well sort of, though I also sort of had the heaves, so you can understand the inconvenience of this grocery store trip). We got to the customer service counter and I told the gal about the worm and insisted that I speak to the fish guy to see what he said about this (and get a fish less notorious for worminess). So I got my gift card with the refund amount from what I paid for the cod and went straight back to the fishmonger to discuss the experience.
When I told him about the worm (and we also showed it to him), he was very non-chalant about the whole thing. "Cod gets worms all the time; so does monkfish. If you cook it long enough, you'll kill the worms anyway." Uh, OK. In theory, I agree with him but I cannot consciously put parasites into my body, dead or alive, if I know they are stuck in the fish! So I opted for the salmon, a less wormy seafood choice according to him.
Coming back home to make the salmon, I just really had a hard time eating the thing, even though I poached that damn thing for at least 20 minutes. I just couldn't get the worm out of my mind. Ahh! Grubster came over to eat fish with me but I did not tell him the worm story until AFTER he was finished eating. I didn't want him to lose his appetite either.
Now, the next day, I was still very obsessed with this whole experience. Like any OCD-prone Blood Group A person, I googled in "cod" and "worm" and found a wonderful blog from a fish expert who explained the phenomenon. I also found a great cod worm "life cycle" diagram which describes how the cod gets eaten by seal, the seal poop out the eggs, the krill eat the eggs and the larvae goes to the first stage, the shrimp eat the krill bringing the larva to the second stage, then the cod eat the shrimp and the worms grow to their full adult size.
Very fascinating indeed. Also a great way to gross out your fellow co-workers. So, I guess to make a long story short, I've been thinking twice about eating meat, ANY meat. I've been trying to wrap my mind around the timing of this discovery. I wonder if I would have even seen these worms had I cooked the fish the night I purchased it. There is a process called "candling" in which the fishmonger shines a light through white-colored fish to search for these worms. Either this did not happen, or the worms were hidden deep within the belly flesh until they began crawling out two days later and so they were missed. I don't know. But man, this has made eating cod very difficult for me ever since!
So, while vegetarianism is fairly easy for me to adopt, veganism is a whole other story. It seems like I need one or the other; either I eat dairy or meat, but I am no where near ready to give up both. This veg thing for me may not be permanent and it is certainly NOT FOR EVERYONE, though I do think 95% of all Americans would be better of eating LESS meat since it is consumed so far away from its origin (the farm) and most folks are very disconnected from the direct process of killing an animal.
If you've ever watched Animal Planet or the Discovery Channel, or my favorite, the movie Madagascar, you know firsthand that some animals, such as my dog, are meant to eat meat. Humans, or "manimals" are in that category. But as a Blood Group A manimal, I'm doing OK without it right now and I'm really not missing it too much so long as I get to have mozarella, chevre, and farmer cheese. And eggs.
More about my trip in a later blog..... I'm ready for bed now!!
guten Morgen meine Liebchens :-)
tja das Thema lässt mich schauern, guckt mal bitte, und eben das ist alles hier nämlich garnicht so
bekannt (weder legt man gesteigerten Wert drauf, dass wir es zu wissen bekommen,noch werden wir adäquat informiert) unter www.foodnavigator.com und Ihr werdet Euer blaues Wunder erleben, was da in den nächsten Jahren an junkfoods auf uns zurollen wird!!!
Leute...ich dachte eigentlich wir sind Menschen und keine Schweinemästerei.....tja was diese alles in uns hineinstopfen wollen, nur aufdass diese Wirtschaft zu brummen hat; das grenzt an Körperverletzung!!
Gott sei Lobe pennt 2/3 der Menschheit munter weiter, sonst gäbe es einen Aufstand in Bälde !
ein gesundes und gesegnetes Wochenende wünscht Euch (immer mit der kleinen Hoffnung im Herzen man(n,frau) möge endlich eigenverantwortlich denken & handeln :-)
g'd morning all dearles :-)
and yesss this thema let me shiver only in thinking about what all kinds of junkfoods will enter soon our markets and stomachs :-(
We aren't informed about all such things, no intention to get informed by the involved firms, nor gouvernements; so far I think they did a deal with pharmalobby to get onto the further move and track for booming foodmarkets. Please observe this :www.foodnavigator.com there are several links to european and northamerican markets and their futur intentions of junkfoodproductions :-( amazing....all dearles I didn't realize that they do confounded us for hog raisings' ............:-(
This might nearly named bodily injury.......
but, fine to know that merely 2/3 of all populations are still sleeping, if not we would have soon an
I want to wish you now a fine weekend(with a little hope in my heart that more and more people will
act and think responsible)
truly yours Isa
Today I am mourning the loss of my shadow of the past nearly 16 years. Last night my dog, yet in many ways still a puppy, was put to sleep. It was the right thing to do because yesterday he was no longer able to walk and was frightened. Even though on medication, his lungs had filled with fluids. During the day, the vet had given him two shots of the medication that usually cleared his lungs, but this time it just didn’t work. So, last night I arranged to meet the vet and we put him down.
Sometimes doing what we know is the best thing to do is still so painful. I already miss Muppet terribly and the tears just keep flowing today. My tears remind me of the tear flowing from his eye last night just before I took him into the vets. The vet checked him over well and said that he wasn’t in any pain and for that I am thankful, but apparently he was just distressed over not being who he had been the many years previously.
My tears are for what had been in the past when Muppet had so much energy. People who came to visit were surprised that he was always glad to see them but then he would bark at the door as they were leaving. Maybe he was trying to keep them here. I always said a burglar would feel welcome and then shocked to be barred from leaving the house. And now, the moose won’t have to feel threatened by that six pound ball of fur barking and chasing it down the road. Fortunately for him, the only moose he chased off we already leaving the area. Moose can be feisty creatures when they feel threatened.
Well, for today, this is my blog. I will miss Muppet very much but am also thankful that he isn’t in distress anymore.
Till next time….
guten Morgen Ihr Liebchen :-)
sooo und heute gehts' mir darum mir nur Luft zu verschaffen......bääääää bin ich sauer :-( würrg...dreh ihr den Hals um, oder ähnliche Gefühle kommen mir hoch, ich fühle mich restlos miss-falsch-ungerecht- behan-
delt und fühle mich schräääcklich !!! Sei circa einem Jahr stehe ich regelrecht Kämpfe mit den verschiedenen Weiberns meines auserwählten Salons aus; jedesmal nehme ich extra eine Vorlage mit, aufdass Derjenige, der sich gerade an mein Schopf ranwagt ein bisschen, aber auch nur äs chliieses bizzeli eine Ahnung hat, wie ich gerne meine Haare geschnippelt hätte!!!
Es wird ein mild-abschätzender Blick auf meine Vorlage geworfen, nach dem Motto,*was hat se denn jetzt wieder für einen Furz im Hirn:-) * oder ja-jaaa immer was anderes,
clarroooo immer was anderes, denn diese gopf...trallala Weiber verschnippeln mich immer wieder und drehen
mein Gewölle immer in eine Richtung die ICH garnicht will!! Entweder werden meine wunderschönen Schnittlauchlocken viel zu kurz geschnippelt, dann sieht's aus wie Jeanne D'Arc...irx wie u-ahgnehm :-(
so richtig schööön bieder und langweilig, oder eben meine letzte Rapunzel schnippelte mich kreuz und quer, dies nannte sie dann *endlich einen richtigen Faconschnitt* reinkriegen...yech....und dann das allerletzte...ich mit meinem Riesenschädel, auchnoch nen Bumskopf kreiert, mit viel Föhnen, Haarschaum und Toupieren....ich dachte mir wird schlecht.....:-(((
Ich werde das Gefühl nicht los, ouch hier nimmt mich kei Sau ernst, nobody want's to know how I'd like to have it...yech...G E M E I N.....immer feste druff und knuff....is ja nicht deren Köpsche.....
OmG muss jetzt wieder einen neuen Coiffeur suchen, und ich dachte, da die Chefin nun halbwegs auf dem BTD-Weg ist, wir hätten eine gemeinsame Basisn...w e i t gefehlt :-(
Aber eben hier sieht man es mal wieder ganz deutlich, jeder hat eine andere Wahrnehmung und gerade hier, als Dienstleister, sollte man doch eher erwarten können dass des Kunden Wunsch aber auch nur halbwegs zu Erfüllung kommt; komisch dass aber gerade dieser Coiffeur hoffnungslos überlaufen ist ......
bin ich denn die Einzige - worauf sie ihr Ego austoben kann ?
hi all dearles :-)
sorry today I am too lazy for the translation from the text above, the only thing I can tell you....
nothing of really important, only a rant about my hairdresser who gets with best acribies my hairs into the false direction....or she shnipples too short, or completely not the style I wanted, and even when bringing a pic. along where she might see how it is done... just nothing..she shnipples and shnipples at her ease, but really very rarely as I wanted :-(
and now I've to look for a new coiffeur...don't want to get this feeling not be taken for serious anymore
and I thought now that I've got her chefa onto the BTD-track we could handle it better...but nope not at all....she is cherishing her ego......
OK, this is a prelude to a real blog. I feel sort of bad because I haven't blogged for a while, but living my life keeps getting in my way. For instance, I just traveled to Europe for the first time in three years. I am creeping towards vegetarianism (at least for the time being). And I'm making a LOT of music.
I just don't have the energy to write tonight, though, because I just poured my writer's soul out in admiration for an incredible DJ here in the Twin Cities named Mark Wheat, who is the best radio DJ in the universe. Check him out at mpr.org and get ready to start enjoying your life more.
There are many good stories to tell, but alas good friends, there will be other days, so we pray.
When the clouds moved in this week not only did it warm up, but it also snowed! We must have gotten about 4 or 5 inches of the white stuff last night which made running my errands a bit more stressful. I drove over 50 miles today going from one place to another, but all the errands are finished.
One of the errands was for my hubby to drive my daughter’s SUV to her place so her husband would have it when he needed to go to work tonight. I picked him up there and brought him home. Her other vehicle had been in the garage since yesterday morning after she put it in the ditch while successfully trying to avoid a moose crossing the highway. Darkness, icy roads, moose, and cars just don’t get along well. Fortunately, she was uninjured but quite shaken after the incident. Now, her car is sporting four brand new studded tires which should help with traction in case another moose wants to cross the road in front of her again.
Then, last night my oldest daughter called. Their van had just been hit by a drunk driver. Everyone was okay except her stepson’s neck was sore from the seatbelt. The driver was not only drunk, but also uninsured. The insurance company says her van is totaled. She is very distraught over that because it looked good and ran well even though it was 10 years old. Now, she will have to try to find something else to drive with the little money her insurance company will pay for her van.
After getting a second accident related call in one day, I called the rest of the kids and told them to stay home! And, that was all before the snow which made the roads even slicker. Oh, well, just another winter day in Alaska.
The clouds left for most of the day and the sun shining on the fresh snow was beautiful. The eagles were aplenty today, too, and most were flying at treetop level. The ravens were busy scavenging goodies from the beds of pickups while they were parked. And, the little chickadees were busy eating the berries that are still visible in some areas.
Tonight’s dinner smelled so good as the roast was turning slowly in the rotisserie. Some smells really get attention. I steamed some brown rice and in another pot steamed some fresh Brussels sprouts that I took off the stem just before steaming. When they were finished I put just a dab of butter over them and some Celtic sea salt. They were delicious. We also had a shredded salad of many root veggies with a bit of Nayonaise dressing and a few raisins. A fresh salad of baby romaine lettuce combined with some fresh spinach and herbs and lightly coated with my olive oil, flaxseed oil, and grapeseed oil with herbs dressing. The plates were filled to overflowing and everyone ate their fill.
Once dinner was finished for us, I put together some goodies for the dogs. Don’t know how well they will like Brussels sprouts, but I put a couple in with the rice, some mashed potato, a piece of salmon and the last piece of roast. They don’t usually get much cooked meat. I’ll be getting them some raw chicken soon, which is a favorite of theirs. Yes, my dogs are spoiled and they know it, but boy, do they get excited when my husband brings out their food. If only my family got as excited for what I fix for them! Oh well! Guess I’ll have to settle for very happy dogs.
