"porky pig healthy" - definitely the wrong blog for oink recipes
"i hate maraschino cherries" - I'm on the same page with this person
"poodle garden" - the only people I know growing a poodle garden would be Sister and Dave. I need to get Billy Cosby back on here for a guest post.
Big Baby Bill is only 10 months old and humongo!"sister no wash socks" - true, her socks are always dirty on the bottom.
"roast lettuce" - I did try that once...didn't turn out that great.
"fu manchu stache" - unfortunately, Forrest sported one of these to dinner to make me mad, ha
After work today, Salvie was in rare form (see below) so I took him for a walk around the 'hood.
"Let me out of this house or I'll pounce on that camera...and your face! Arghwoof!
The fluff puff tried to eat a cigarette butt, an earthworm shell, a straw, and ice cream...
Salvie + musical ice cream truck = disaster.
I finally got Sal shoved back in the front door, strapped on his muzzle, and started dinner. I had a ton of veggies and other randomness leftover from Saturday's photo shoot so I cooked Forrest two dinners, ha. We started with fake chicken stir fry.....
Heat up a wok (or skillet) and add fake chicken strips, extra virgin olive oil, teriyaki sauce, low-sodium soy sauce, and the juice of half a lemon. Wok it up until chicken is cooked through. Toss in all the veggies you have in the fridge...I used red and yellow bell peppers, yellow onion, and carrots.
Serve over a bed of baby spinach (it will wilt from the stir fry heat) and sprinkle with...drum roll...CILANTRO!
Maybe I should have made this concoction for the magazine spread. The best / tastiest five minutes I've ever spent on cooking a dish.
We polished that bowl off and Forrest was still hungry (and I wanted to use up more leftovers) so I made my tofu ravioli recipe and added prosciutto so I wouldn't have to see it sitting in the fridge any longer.
Tofu acting like ricotta cheese. Mix in olive oil and fresh chopped basil...
...and prosciutto ribbons.
Stuff your wonton.
My friend, Liz S., made these after the first time I blogged about them. We both seemed to have a slight problem with the filling coming out during the boiling step. Good news - skip it! Heat up your sauce and simply cook the ravioli in the sauce until tender!
Taaa - daaaa!
Garnish with more fresh basil and grated parmesan cheese. Dinner # 2 - can you believe Forrest licked this plate clean?!
Here is something I haven't blogged about in a while - beer!!!
Give a warm welcome to the Fish Tail Organic India Pale Ale made by the Fish Brewing Company / Fishbowl Brewpub. The body is a burnt orange color with a super thin, white head and an abv of 6.5%. The taste is a combination of lemon zest, caramel, and finishes on a slightly bitter note. Beer guy is a fan and gives this brewski an 8.5 out of 10. Hmm, that Shades glass is bringing back a foggy memory. Shades is the local bar we watch all the football games at if we are down at the beach. For some reason, I'm thinking I (probably at Forrest's request) took that glass home with me in my purse one night. I wonder if they are missing it?!
Anyway, I'm tired and so is this fur ball.........
"My eyes are shutting...wooooof"
"For the love, at least turn the flash off. Woof woof!"
