Baked and Yummy

So couple of weeks ago saw a blog about Zuccini and how she baked hers and her son fried his Zuccini yet when each was finished hers was one that everyone ate. She had posted recipe but I didnt save it and couldnt remeber who's post it was. I mean come on its been at least 3weeks and I have slept since then. Seeing as I started to crave eating healthy and baked sounds so much better then grease dripping and making my stomach ill. So I thought one better why not bake Egg Plant also, I have only eaten Egg Plant once in my life and have no clue what it tasted like it was so long ago. Cooked the Zuccini and Eggplant dipped in egg and rolled with seasoned bread crums baked at 425 for 20 minutes Mmmm so crisp and yummy its a must try. Here is to Healthy Eating

Disney On Ice "Toy Story 3"

Aliens always make me smile specially if they are filled with slushy sweet ice :)
I took the children to the American Airline Center to see Disney on Ice "Toy Story 3" it was very nice the children loved it and our seats were so close to the floor we could see every one life size. The kids and I have not been to Ice show since they were little so it was a great family night out with family, and fun!
The show was wonderful it told the entire story from toy story 1-3 beginning to end and we also enjoyed Mickey and Minnie mouse with Daffy Duck and Goofy the night was filled with Slinky dog, Barbie, and Ken also Woody, Buzz light year and all the aliens even the claw showed up for the show.

"Main St in Motion"

Main St In Motion was a very nice event in Grand Praire it was held at Lone Star Park the people were very inviting as you entered the gate and the new 2011 vehicles were amazing. There were snacks and booths with every car from every dealer there Chevy, GMC, Lexus, Buick and more the day was a perfect day to enjoy the drives we were able to go from booth to booth and look at each new vehicle inside and out and then go down to course and drive the new vehicles of our choice. I drove the new Denali Yukon such a smooth ride and the options in the vehicle are endless a perfect family vehicle for all large families.
The trucks were very nice as well heavy duty and a lot of the new vehicles also come in Hybrid options the Denali Yukon did and also the Chevy Pickup truck very nice rides and sturdy built with high quality a must see a must buy.
And to end my day I drove the all new 2011 Corvette so sweet a person who enjoys the fast lane for sures dream car.

Hiking healthy and fun ways to lose weight

This is a hiking trip I went on with my sister at "Eagle Mountain Lake Park" it was a 5 mile hike we only did 3miles it took us 2 hrs to complete but I will admit we stop a lot and just enjoyed the great weather and the beauty of the lake from the top of the hill or mountain side. I love to hike it is a fun easy way to maintain a good weight or even lose weight. This park no longer allows pets to go with you I use to take my dogs but now I cant but there are many different areas in DFW that you can hike and take pets to enjoy nature and its beauty. If you don't hike on the regular or if you have not hiked before I suggest you grab bottle of water and get your tennis shoes on and get out there enjoy and see nature at its finest.

Baked goods and Health choices

This is one of the best appetizers and Healthy side dishes I think Ive ever made and Mmm yummy as well. This is Organic Egg Plant and Organic Zucchini I sliced them and rolled them in egg then dipped them in seasoned bread crumbs season as you wish. Then laid on a cookie sheet and Baked them at 400 temp for 25 minutes they were very crispy and the kids loved them dipped in Lite Ranch or whatever dressing you choose.

This is the meal we had it is a Caesar Salad with Dices grilled Chicken and red Bell Peppers sauteed in EVOO these are very healthy and cheap does not cost a lot to make and time to prepare is small it is very filling and great for daily quick throw together meals.

" Trinity Trash Bash"

In September 2010 I did the "Trinity Trash Bash" which is an event to help clean our rivers in TX., I must say it was a lot of work, but so much fun for me. We cleaned for 4 hours picking up garbage along the river never thought there would be so much trash, but wow there were at least 100 tires alone in the river 3 vehicles and tons of garbage as far as the eye could see, bottles, tents, clothes, shingles for a roof, endless amounts of trash and sad thing is it was going in to our water and killing the fish and turtles, frogs etc.

During the event I found under a bridge a area were homeless lived a flood had came through days before and washed all their clothes and tent and items in to water because we were there to clean we had to throw the items away I felt horrible, did not want the only things these people had in life to be taken with nothing in return so I went to my truck and grabbed bottles of water, bag of bread, and 4 T-shirts I had got for the event and left them there hoping it would be a small token of I'm sorry to remove your belongings.....

After we cleaned and finished we all met at the Trinity River down town Fort Worth and had huge meal and gathering just to enjoy each others company and say thanks for the help.

Siberian Husky "Prince George"

George is a Siberian Husky whom I bought 2 yrs ago for my son Sonny on his 6Th Birthday, with out my knowledge George had worms and not just a few thousands and 3 different kind.
The vet said he had never seen a case so bad, and had the animal live. Yet he did months of treatments and here he is 2 yrs later enjoying his 2ND snow days, this picture was his 1st snow ever and he loved it. Three days ago in Texas it came down and wow he ran out side like a kid at Christmas he jumped all around the yard eating the ice and playing for hours I had to beg him to come back in our house. George has a new best friend Duke who is a Weimaraner Duke is only a year old and it was his first snow and wow big difference he is scared of it doesn't want his feet to touch the ground and does not want to stay in the outdoors.
Picture to the right are my boys together very loving, fun, healthy, smart dogs yet a world apart. I love them very much and I am enjoying watching them grow and play in this once every few years event in Texas.

"Your Breath is Bad" WHY???

People don't realize that throwing your tooth brush away as often as every 2 weeks is very important. Specially every time you get sick. Your tooth brush carries germs on it that you cant see and no amount of hot water will rinse off. Every time you use your tooth brush after you have been sick you are just giving your self the illness back again. There are such a large amount of styles and brushes to choose from you need to choose the one that is best for you, and stock up at all times I have 12 extra tooth brushes in my home for possible guests and for new brushes for our family. Clean brushes help fight bad breath much better and flossing a lot of people don't realize that food cakes up on your tongue, under your gums and also on your brush so just like a filter in your air system to keep your lungs fresh from germs and garbage in the air you must also keep your tooth brush and breath fresh.

Selections: 1. Oral B

2. Cologate

3. Crest

4. G-U-M


Just to name a few there are many more.

" Healthy Recipes "

Ive decided that every time I cook an extremely tasty meal. I will share it with all my readers as long as it is healthy. This is a "Cesar salad" that I sauteed Red Bell Peppers, Shrimp, and Porto Bella Mushrooms in a little extra virgin Olive oil the kids love this when I make it for lunch, its fast, cheap, and healthy, also filling. This amount feeds 4 people and everything all together costs around $5.00 with left overs. So if you have any suggestions on healthy meals or recipes you want to share please let me know I hope you enjoy your meal.

Pets and their Toys "Duke"

So this is "Duke" he is my sweety, he enjoys giving love he is a little over a year old and very playful. He loves his toys but some times he gets a little rough with them seeing he is around 75lbs for sure maybe more have not weighed him in a while, needless to say he some times eats them and as we all know some toys for dogs can be $8.00-$12.00 depending on brand or where you buy them. Good news is I found a dollar store that sells all kinds of toys and well know name brand toys for $1.00 so I stocked up for him and in 2 days he has chewed his way through 6 toys to the point of trash worthy *ugh* My question is what do you think would be best for him? Does anyone know of a non destructible toy that might be out there? If so please contact me I'm always for great ideas.
