Such a lazy blogger

I've been such a lazy blogger. I have things to say and pictures to share, but man, I've been so lazy. We went through H-E-double toothpicks to get Emmy back and now that we have her I don't want to do anything but cuddle. It was a major pain in the patootie to get her. The weather broke 20 degrees at night for three days so we were trying to get her out ASAP, however, the vets weren't cooperating. Many thanks for all of the work that my family and Julie did! If it wasn't for them my little pupster would still be stuck in CA...not that she would be complaining, but Edward and I would be.

Anyway, here are some recent pictures of food and my little snuggle-muffin.

This is a Bolivian chicken dish that was sooooo spicy and yummy. I got this recipe from The South American Table recipe book that I got from Auntie Mary who got it from her friend. Oh my gosh, it was so good. Only Edward and I really liked it though because it was so spicy. The recipe called for hot peppers so I bought two habanero peppers. You have to puree the peppers with some EVOO. I left the seeds in one and seeded the other. It was the perfect amount of heat for us. Make sure to wear gloves if you're handling these babies. I've learned my lesson. Over the summer I forgot to wear them and then touched my lip. It was burning for hours. Thank goodness I didn't rub my eye. I'd probably would have had to go to the hospital. These burn like fire. Anyway, the chicken was really good, but all of the onion that I put in made Edward's stomach upset. I love to cook with garlic and onions, but they make his tummy growl and rumble. Oh well. Thanks for the book Auntie Mary! This is a great recipe and I'm sure there are a ton more.

This is an Indian style pork loin that I made last night. A few months ago I did something similar but didn't write down the recipe so I was trying to do the same thing. This time though, I used lots of veggies, which made it so much better.

Indian Style Pork Loin

1 pork loin
3 tbsp Garam Masala
1 tbsp Turmeric
1 tbsp Cumin
1 tbsp Kosher salt
1 tbsp fresh ground pepper
3 tbsp EVOO
1 1/2 cup chicken stock
1 onion, sliced
3 carrots, cut in chunks
4 stalks celery, cut in chunks
5 mushrooms, sliced

Mix spices together in bowl. Rub over pork. Heat EVOO. Brown the pork in dutch over or heavy pot on medium high heat. Add chicken stock to get the browned bits off of the bottom. Add remaining ingredients and cover. Let cook for about an hour or until the pork is as firm as the flesh by your thumb of a closed fist....of just cut into it to see if it's done.

Emmy pictures:

So when Emmy was home we thought that she had gotten a cut in the backyard while running around. She had been biting at the area by her right hind leg because it was bothering her. When Julie took her to the vet the first time to get her health certificate to fly (we had to get three different certificates) the vet gave her some antibiotics. My parents were taught a way to trick Emmy into eating the pill without noticing (something I'll have to learn eventually). When Julie took her back to the vet for the third certificate the vet took another look at her little furless area. He thinks that her fur loss is an allergic reaction to rabies vaccine that she got at Banfield...which we're banning by the way. So the next time I take her to get vaccinated I will ask for a different brand. These are a couple of pics of the furless area. It has been very dry and flaky so I put a tiny bit of lotion on her. I don't want her to have another reaction so I only used a tiny, tiny bit.

Oh Mommy, I love being home with you!
Oooooh strechy girl!
