Sooo much time has gone by

about 4 weeks ago i adopted a female husky that we named Domino. The first couple of days we got her we were like hmm she is oddly shaped but didn't think anything about it since it was mainly her ribs and the first vet I went too had told me she was spayed... Well once we went to PA and she kept gaining weight we were getting worried. SO the day we got back I took Domino to my parents vet and low and behold she is pregnant. She is expecting at least 7 puppies if not more.

At this point she is due at any time and I will post baby pictures once the puppies arrive.

1 eggplant
1 zuchini
1 squash
1 onion
3 tomatoes
spices and herbs to taste

Preheat oven to 350

I blanched the tomatoes and then peeled them at the same time i sauteed the onions with 3 gloves of garlic then i threw it all in the food processor until it was liquidy. i added a cup of oil

this is my base i put it in a oven pan that has at least 1 inch up.

i sliced all the veggies and put them on the sauce in the pan

I then put it in the oven until veggies were tender.

More Nom

No picture this time but I have successfully made my own hummus it looks kind of interesting but it tastes delicious. It is especially good with tomatoes and salt. (nom nom)

Yesterday was my first day of classes and it was interesting. We'll see what happens. She decided that we didn't actually need the book -- Phew-- and that we had fridays of in the sense that we can work on the stuff that is due and get it done so that we didn't have to work on it over the weekend. Now I do need to get some stuff together in general but otherwise I think that this will be an awesome class. =)

I started working out and already after two days I feel better.

Friday, June 5, 2009

Nom nom

So todays lunch menu is:

Ethiopian flat bread, rice tomato sauce ish stuff Indian style and Indian chicken
It turned out pretty interesting but good nonetheless. :)

Succesful lunch

All day I have been having this craving for tomato basil soup... After searching the internet for recipes I came up with well nothing. Everything required stock or cream or some other item that one doesn't just have on hand. So, I created my own recipe. Here it goes:

Tomato basil soup the simple way.

2 Tomatoes
1 can organic tomato sauce un flavored
minced garlic
1 small red onion

throw the tomatoes in the food processor and chop them up then add all ingredients but the onion in the pot and heat on medium low. Season with spices to taste. Sautee the onions and once they are done add them in the soup. Simmer on low 'til it is hot enough. Taste and add spices as needed

Makes enough for two people to have one bowl each.

The bread recipe can be found here.

The only difference for me in the bread is:

I used duck eggs instead of chicken,
guar-gum instead of xantham gum
and i didn't let it rise and just put it in the oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.

The yellow color comes from the duck eggs.

The Winner ...

The Winner is..... (drumroll please)

Many creative gifts.


I will send you an email with the PDF to the patter.

Thank you all for participating. and keep and eye out for next months giveaway...

sick, and milk

So my body decided that it must hate me since I found out yesterday that the mytery rash is the Shingles. Oh great! but the rash doesn't just itch it hurts it feels like there someone trying to put a knife in my ribs... I am not happy. So I get to be drugged up for a while. It is supposed to take 2-3 weeks to go away. MEH...

I made the powdered goatmilk and it actually tastes good considering it is powdered milk.
It is pretty nifty.

Die Maus

And here it is:
my finished project,
my version of die Maus.

Pattern will come soon.

I hope y'all enjoy.

new project, random moped

SO yesterday I was surfing around Ravelry and saw someone's Ravatar that reminded me of a show I used to watch all the time and actually still do as a podcast now. My secret is what is my project. Here are some hint pictures.

A couple of days ago I was driving home from school and saw a moped on my way home and it was just the cutest thing ever. I had to photograph it. I hope y'all enjoy it.

I just thought it was way to silly for me not to share with you.
