Food Friday: Real Food

Since I'm still feeling a little under the weather with this head cold, today's post will be a Zen Habits article titled:
The jest of the article is eating REAL food, not something that comes out of a package or has a label.
It's interesting, honest! Happy Friday & Have a great weekend.

Then he does this!

"In your crate" I walk back down the hall to the porch closet and finish taking off my hat, scarf and coat. The tears are coming.
"What happened?"
I don't respond & instead I think 'I'm a failure' and proceed to walk to the living room.
"What happened?"
Now I'm full fledge crying "Everything!!"
"Like what?"
I throw myself on the couch, curl up in the fetal position and cry harder "Everything, the usual, the biting, the jumping. Kristen he pulled me the whole walk!"
"Where did he start? You should have brought him back"
By now the sobbing has started....."I was already around the corner,....sob.....halfway around the block, it was too far to come back....sob.....I can't do it!.....sob......he's a completely....sob.....different dog with me......sob.....I thought maybe it was my I took them off.....sob......then he stopped biting my hands.....sob....and started biting my arm......sob, sob, sob....."
"You need to be more assertive with him"
"I can't!!!.....sob, can.......sob.......let him out......sob.....of his crate now"
Kristen goes to let Boone out of his crate, on his way back he says "He must know he did something wrong, he won't come out"
"Well a walk like that can't be enjoyable for him either" I say
About 30 seconds later Boone does come out of the room and immediately comes to me on the couch. He's never seen me cry, let alone hysterically like this. He doesn't understand, he keeps pawing at me, trying to climb up to see what's wrong.
I push him away...."See, then he does this!"
Kristen is leaning on the kitchen counter, watching.
Boone decides he's not being pushed away again and goes to the end of the couch by my feet, climbs up, curls into me, almost spooning my fetal position, and rests his chin on my legs. He sighs.....
"See!  Then he does......sob......this! and I feel.......sob........terrible!!!"
Kristen smiles and walks away.

Crushed Pills

When I was a little girl my mom would take two spoons and crush an aspirin between them, then mix it with molasses. Then proceed to give it to me with a glass of water for any ailment I might have had at that time.
I still struggle with taking pills but smaller ones like advil (can't take aspirin anymore, it makes me stomach sick) are usually taken fairly uneventfully.
Until now....I've just started taking a new daily multi vitamin and boy am I struggling with taking them. I'm really thinking about starting to crush them and mix them with molasses :) The packaging doesn't say that I can't....cause I have had meds before that specifically say the pill must be taken whole.
Am I the only one who still struggles with this childhood thing with pills?
Oh and a sidenote, remember yesterday how I went on and on about my wonderful weekend INSIDE? Will now I'm coming down with a cold, so it's my own fault for not getting out in the fresh air more, shame on me :(

Weekend in Review - Tuesday style

My weekend was a cold but nice one. Friday night I convinced Kristen to go with me to do grocery shopping so I wouldn't have to do it on Saturday since the windchills were going to be in the -20's....brrr.
Saturday I did some house cleaning, caught up on some shows I had PVR'd and then had pad thai with friends while babysitting Tristan. Who's hilarious, he's putting so many words together now and that with his own little dialect that I can't even understand half the time....I don't know how many times I was just giggling at the way he was explaining stuff to cute. Or he would say something so random yet was completely appropriate that Kristen & I would just look at each other and laugh thinking how does he know that? 2 years old but smart as anything, that's for sure :)
Sunday again was FREEZING! So after Mommy picked up Tristan, I quickly ran to a friends house to drop off some things that I had borrowed and then went home and made it a movie day. I don't mind having weekends where I just stick around the house, we all need those every now and again. Especially when it's so cold out :(
Other than that things have been fairly normal. I feel disorganized with my blogging for this week so I'm hoping to take some time tonight to get all back on track with that. While doing much fun...yay!
Random question: does anyone know why all the shows are repeats this week?
Luckily last nights episode of Gossip Girl was one that I had missed and one that Kristen had cancelled the recording on the PVR. However, I'm told Ugly Betty & Grey's are re-runs this week too, does anyone nkow why?
Okay that's my ramblings for today

Happy Birthday Papa

To my Dad, Happy Birthday!!
Who's young at heart, loves to have fun, who chooses to see the good in people and is a good person, no a GREAT person. He would do anything for you.
Just after Christmas, he committed himself to go to the local Seniors Home on Sunday afternoons to sing hymns with them, since most of them can't get out during the winters months.
I asked: Dad who's going with you?
He said: I don't know....whoever wants to go.
I asked: What if nobody else goes?
He said: Well I'll go by myself.
That's just who he is :)
Here's to many more, love you dad!

History in the Making - Inauguration 2009

 Today will be a day in history, in American history. I wonder how it will affect us, Canadians? Directly, indirectly?
I will take time today to watch President Obama's speech (probably tonight after work), as I'm sure it will be inspiring.
I am worried however that he has the weight of the world on his shoulders, literally. I hope people have realistic expectations of him. I honestly think he can do a great job as President as long as the critics are patient, all the while looking at the big picture. The media is so influential and people so easily led by it.
Do you think today is really the beginning of the "free world" as I've heard it called. Do you think today is the day that we unite? That all are equal? I'd like to think so, I really do. I hope today is the first day of Change. I hope when I'm old and grey I can talk about this day with my children. How do you feel about today?

Weekend in Review

I'm addicted!
I'm borderline obsessive compulsive (or I think I am, and when I find something I like, I'm all in.
This happened to me this weekend, I discovered something new, something fun, and now I can't get enough. This weekend I discovered....
Actually Rockband 2 Special Edition...but that's neither here nor there.
I know, I know....I'm probably the last person on the planet who hasn't played the game, but now I have and I'm hooked. I love it! Saturday night Kristen, my brother and I played for about 3 hours straight. To the point that my throat hurt and the boys hands were sore from playing drums & guitar.
But so worth it and so much fun :)
If you have the opportunity to play, go for it. You won't be disappointed.

Food Friday: Meal Plan week of Jan 19th

So how are the meal plans going for you so far? I would like to say that even though I share a lot of recipes on here I very rarely make my meal going "exactly" by the recipe, I almost ALWAYS tweak it in some way shape or form. Just wanted to share that in case some of these cause you to feel overwhelmed or if you don't like all the ingredients/spices or you have a better substition, especially if you're going with no salt or low fat vareities.

Monday - Chicken, Mashed Potatoes & Sauteed Broccoli
I fry onions in olive oil then add broccoli to the pan when the onions are almost clear, then add "vegetable seasoning" by Clubhouse seasonings mix well and put lid on frying pan to fry/steam the broccoli.
Tuesday - Grilled Salmon & Basmati Rice
Mix equal parts of maple syrup, dijon mustard and bbq sauce. Marinate your salmon and then grill. Serve with basmati rice.
Wednesday - Turkey Manicotti with Garden Salad
This recipe is from the tv show "Fixing Dinner" the curry mixed with the mushroom soup puts such an AWESOME flavour on this!!! Seriously :) Even if you don't like curry!
Easy Turkey Manicotti
• 1 lb. (450g) ground turkey
• 1/2 tsp Mrs. Dash Table Blend seasoning
• 1 tsp curry powder
• 1/2 tsp pepper
• 1 can cream of mushroom soup (384ml)
• 1/4 soup can 1% milk
• Cooking spray
• 8 oz (250g) manicotti noodles
• 1 x 8 oz tub 1% cottage cheese (250g)
• 1 jar of your favourite pasta sauce (700ml)
• 1/4 cup low-fat grated Parmesan cheese
• Aluminium foil
Brown ground turkey in a large nonstick frying pan or work at medium-high.
Once meat is thoroughly cooked add: spice, soup and milk to pan, in that order.
Mix well to combine and then remove from heat.
Spray lasagne or cake pan with cooking spray.
Spoon filling unto uncooked manicotti until ¾ full. When all shells are filled and in pan, spoon cottage cheese over top, then spoon sauce over top.
Sprinkle on Parmesan and cover tightly with foil, shiny side down.
Bake in oven, set timer for 50 minutes.
When timer rings for manicotti, uncover.
Grate cheese directly over top.
Return to the pan to oven and set oven to broil.
Watch it carefully as it only takes a couple of minutes to bubble up.
Thursday - Steak & Kristen's Greek Salad
Grill your steak and make this salad to go with it!
1 english cucumber sliced
1 green pepper sliced
1/2 red onion cut in slices (whole onion if it's smaller)
1-2 pkgs. cherry tomatoes
Kalamata olives(but Kristen prefers the zesty green olives)
Feta Cheese (buy a 250g container of the stuff....that'll do)
Little bit of olive oil
Tbsp sea salt (you know the bigger stuff)
¼ tsp of pepper
2 tbsp oregano
½ lemon juiced
Friday - Take out/Frozen dinner Night!!

Categories - Food

Okay so I'm experiencing technical difficulties here today. Which means I can't add a feature to my blog that I was hoping too :(  Even a couple were mistakenly removed (will have to fix tonight)
What I'm going to do is add a label to all posts food related, whether it's meal plans, recipes, etc. in a way to create a "quick link" for you. So down the road when I'm not doing meal plans's only for 2009, there'll be back links for future reference.
Also on my photo blog there's a post about a new product I'm offering this year, storyboards. I know for some computers its hard to view the photos due to your computer settings. It's because I use a photo server which allows me to post "large" photos unlike the tiny ones I post on this blog. Just an FYI in case you're one of the people who's having that problem.
And on the same topic of storyboards, big shout-out to Tara, who sent me an email to make my storyboards even better!!! Can't wait to show you those...hee-haw!! I'm still learning people, so any & all information you want to share, I'm more than open to hearing, seeing, learning.

Book & Movie Review

In light of Tara's comment on Monday about Boone being like Marley from Marley & Me I thought I'd do a book & movie review.
Over Christmas I was able to read my free book called Can you Keep a Secret? I loved it! Mainly because it was like watching a romantic comedy. I love romantic comedies, they're probably my favourite type of movies. What can I say? Anyway this book reminded me of that. Yes it was predictable, but it was funny, sad, and witty. I would say it's a chick flick in a book for sure. Would I recommend it? Absolutely (if that's your sort of thing)
Now on to Marley & Me. I loved this movie!!! I've since purchased the book to read. I bawled my eyes out at the theatre in public with friends watching me and giggling. I would not recommend young children seeing this movie. Seriously, even though I loved the movie, I was equally devastated by the movie. The reality of a loved pet getting old and having to make "decisions" was just too real for me now that I'm a dog owner. And even though Marley was a yellow labrador and Boone a golden retreiver, some of the simliarities in the movie were uncanny. For example, the scenes where Marley eats/chews everything, oh yeah that is Boone for sure!! For example, just before Christmas I was putting gifts in a cardboard box to mail to Newfoundland by the time I had put all the gifts in, Boone had chewed off the corner. I don't know how many times we've went running through the house to find an appropriate chew toy to replace the VERY inappropriate item he might have in his mouth at the time. So in light of this, Kristen has suggested my list about Boone be re-named Things we've taken from Boone's mouth.....seems a little more appropriate doesn't it? I'll be updating that list this week, since that one might take me a little longer....  :)

Stop Waiting

Now that we're a wee bit into the new year we're starting to get back to our winter routines and have pretty much recuperated from all of the Christmas parties and busy-ness.
You've also probably started on your new years resolution if you've made them. If you haven't, that's okay too because everyone needs to read this post from Zen Habits.
It's basically about stopping waiting for life to happen and be happy NOW!
Yeah go read! he, he :)

Weekend in Review

It was a nice weekend, didn't do a whole lot.
Friday night I slept while Kristen went to hockey...shh, I was supposed to be watching my Friends season dvds that Kristen gave me for Christmas.
Saturday had a quiet morning around the house, did a new post for my photo blog. The first one of 2009...hoping to really getting the ball rolling back on that blog this week. Then went grocery shopping with Kristen (needed to get this weeks meal plan ingredients). We also brought Boone along. We normally buy our groceries at the Great Canadian Superstore and buy coffees to drink while shopping, this time was no exception. That was, until after grocery shopping we decided to rent a couple of movies for the evening and when we came out of the movie store we realized Boone had eaten one of the paper coffee cups, in whole! All that was left was the plastic lid in little pieces which is how we figured out he ate it in the first place. He's so sneaky and fast! This led to Kristen suggesting I start a list on my blog about everything Boone has I did. You'll see it on the right hand side below my profile pic. I'll update accordingly...honestly I hope not very often...but we'll see what he get's in too  :)
Sunday I shovelled some snow, practiced some photography techniques that I've been learning from a book I'm reading (another Christmas gift from Kristen) went to Kristen's hockey game and relaxed the rest of the evening. It was a great weekend.
Also I added a badge on the right for a blog I read called "This is Reverb" it's the blog of a Pastor in the USA that I discoverd through Pioneer Woman's website (he does guest cooking posts) and I'm completely intrigued by him. He's SO not a typical Pastor, or not typical in the sense of the Pastors I grew up listening too and seeing as a leader in the community. He has tattooes (almost completed sleeves), drinks wine, smokes cigars, and I can see some of your right now gasping out loud and saying he's no Christian. But you know what? His heart is right and who are you to judge? Anyway.....this is not the point of my post today. My point is to read his blog, it's a new perspective of modern Christianity. You don't have to agree, I'm just asking you to be open-minded. That's all.

Food Friday: Meal plan for week of Jan 12th

Happy Friday....I hope your attempt at introducing at least 1 whole grain went well last week.
This week no lessons, no lectures...just the meal plan:
Monday: Rosemary Dijon Chicken & Roasted Potatoes
Rosemary Dijon Chicken recipe below....I would bake the potatoes while chicken is baking...may take some time (approx 45 min - 1 hour) but it'll all be ready the same time and you can unwind from your busy workday or start laundry, etc while waiting....multi tasking :)
1/2 cup Hellmann's Real Mayonnaise 125 mL
1/4 cup Dijon mustard 50 mL
2 tbsp lemon juice 30 mL
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary or 2 tsp crumbled dried
2 garlic cloves, minced
6 chicken breasts
In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, rosemary and garlic.
Put chicken in shallow dish and cover with mixture. Bake at 350
Tuesday - Easy Shrimp Pasta for Two   (this is a Kraft Canada Recipe)
I tried this a while back and it's yummy :)
2 Tbsp. Kraft Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
1/2 lb. (225 g) uncooked large shrimp, peeled, deveined
120 g fettuccine, uncooked
1 tomato, chopped
1/4 of 250-g pkg. PHILADELPHIA Brick Cream Cheese, cubed
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil leaves, divided
2 Tbsp. KRAFT 100% Parmesan Finely Shredded Cheese
POUR dressing over shrimp in small bowl; cover. Refrigerate 20 min. to marinate. Cook pasta as directed on package. Meanwhile, heat large skillet on medium heat; add shrimp. Cook 3 min. or until shrimp turn pink, stirring frequently. Remove shrimp from skillet, using slotted spoon; cover to keep warm. Set aside.
ADD tomatoes, cream cheese and 1 Tbsp. of the basil to same skillet; cook and stir 3 min. or until well blended. Add shrimp; cook until heated through, stirring occasionally.
DRAIN pasta. Place on large serving platter; top with the shrimp mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 1 Tbsp. basil and the shredded cheese.
How to Sauce It Up
If you prefer it saucier, stir a small amount of milk into the shrimp mixture.
Wednesday - Turkey Burgers
You will need:
Ground Turkey meat (chicken is fine too)
Chopped Red/Yellow/Orange Pepper (your choice or a bit of all three)
Chopped Red Onion
Minced Garlic
Salt & Pepper to taste
Dash of chili powder (optional)
Bread Crumbs
Mix all ingredients well and form into patties, drizzle a bit of olive oil and grill. Serve with onions, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, etc etc etc as your toppings. I personally load mine down with bacon, cheese, ketchup, mayo and hot pepper relish :)
Thursday - Slowcooker Chicken & Rice
Put a whole frozen or thawed chicken in your slowcooker on LOW before you go to work, about 3/4 cup of water on the bottom so it doesn't dry up, add whatever spices such as salt, pepper, paprika, then some onions and when you get home cooked chicken!! Whip up some rice with it and dinner is served!! Or even microwave a Bistro Express Rice pack and dinner is literally ready in 5 minutes.
Friday - Take out/Frozen Dinner Night!
Instead of keeping it as pizza night let's just call this an easy night...the night that you order take out or cook that frozen meal such as chicken nuggets or a frozen pizza, etc.

Christmas 2008

My mom & dad came to visit this Christmas it was crazy busy but very enjoyable. So nice having them here for a change.
It was hard saying goodbye but it's all part of living so far away from them :(
But on a lighter note.....the photos:
Christmas Eve we have lobster, Kristen started this tradition our 2nd Christmas together and so it continues
Enjoying the feast
Then on to Christmas morning
What a mess.....
Boone's new toy....a pheasant which he has already broken the squeaker
Dad & Blaine opening gifts
Me getting ready to cook breakfast....don't even get me started on how awful I look in this photo
Then Christmas lunch. Which Kristen & I hosted this year....yes I served 25 people! Two turkeys, 20 lbs of potatoes....yeah you get the idea.
Thanks to mom and my aunties who helped out :)
And then a photo of my Mom with her brothers & sisters. There's another brother & sister who are still in Nfld and obviously not in the photo
And that was Christmas....tomorrow Boxing Day

Project: Basement

Kristen worked very hard on our basement last winter, see this post. But then the weather warmed up and summer took hold. Then hunting season, meaning the basement project was put on the backburner. Until about November when panic set in because the basement wasn't finished and my parents were coming for Christmas.
We hired our neighbours to do the plastering for us since that would have been the hardest part for Kristen to do. In a few days we pulled some late nights and went from this:
To this:
There's still more to be done but at least the worst of it is over.
I'm so proud of Kristen, with exception to the plastering and the bit of painting that I helped with, he did this all himself. I personally think he did a GREAT job! I was the one who also thought of the brown accent wall to tone down the yellow a bit even though he tries to take credit.
Will have more photos once we complete the bedroom and bathroom.

Food Friday: Whole Grains

How many of you made a New Years Resolution to lose weight? It seems so many people make the resolution every year, but why make it every year? This years resolution instead should be to eat healthy. That's it, that simple. Forget about losing weight, going to the gym (that you probably hate going to anyway) and just focus on eating healthy. The rest will fall into place....honest....have some faith :)
So food fridays will focus on healthy eating. To start off the New Year we are going to introduce CARBS...da da da...yes carbs. I hate when people say they're cutting out pasta, rice, bread and potatoes...only to lose weight and then start eating them again or eat more of it because they deprived themselves of something they loved. Why fight it? We NEED carbs, our body needs the fibre & whole grains.

Here's some of the health benefits of whole grains (information from Wikipedia)

Whole grains have a greater amount of dietary fiber, as much as four times that found in refined grains, is likely the most important benefit, as it has been shown to reduce the incidence of some forms of cancer, digestive system diseases, gum disease, coronary heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.

The higher fiber content also results in a modest caloric reduction in whole grain foods. Some of these protective effects occur because carbohydrates from whole grains are digested and enter the bloodstream more slowly (as measured by the glycemic index). Many health studies have shown that whole grains have numerous cardiovascular benefits.

Whole grains are particularly rich in complex carbohydrates which help keep the body energized through the whole day. Complex carbohydrates may have a positive effect on weight control.

So this week and part of our healthy eating and food fridays we're giving ourselves a goal.
**Introduce 1 whole grain into our weekly meal plan**

Here's this weeks meal plan that is focused on WHOLE GRAINS! Remember the goal is to introduce 1....If you want to add more than 1 be my guest.

Monday - Chicken Stir-fry with rice
Fry boneless skinless chicken breasts, add frozen or fresh veggies. Seasoning of choice (Kraft catalina dressing with a bit of hoisin sauce is a good combination) and pour over brown rice.
Tuesday - Grilled cheese sandwiches with tomatoe soup
Use whole grain bread instead of white bread for the sandwiches. It's a quick and easy dinner. You get dairy intake, whole grains, and fruit/veggie intake from the tomate soup.
Wednesday - Cheese & Sausage Pasta
Boil italian sausages, poke with a fork so the grease boils out. Remove them and slice into pieces, add to frying pan with onions. Meanwhile cook whole grain rotini pasta. When cooked, add sausage, tomatoe sauce of choice, and mix well. Then over the top add shredded cheddar cheese, or just have the cheese on the table so everyone can add their own desired amount.
Thursday - Grilled Chicken, Roasted Potatoes & Corn
Did you know corn is actually a whole grain and not a vegetable? It is....honest! Frozen corn, canned corn, fresh corn....your choice but it's still a whole grain :)
Friday - Pizza Night
Friday nights are almost always pizza night for us. It started out being that way because we were pressed for time with Kristen playing hockey and all, now we just continue the's nice having a night off. The pizza is usually take out, a frozen one from the grocery store or homemade. This week try buying a pizza made with multi grain crust from the grocery store.

And think this is just the beginning! A whole year of healthy eating to come. I've already had some suggestions for future posts, keep them coming. I'll need all the help I can get. Happy New Year and Here's to 2009 of Good Health.
