Good Evening Peeps! |
Chicken Hawk report!
One of my little girls produced an egg yesterday! My "Grandegg" was collected yesterday morning. This morning? Two More!
My little girls have grown up!
This is such a happy occasion!

Long story short here.
When my Ex took off with a Stripper, I moved two hours away from that town and rented a little house and stored my horse at my cousin's place. I couldn't afford cable and there was no such thing as TV reception without it. The world had just gone digital TV. Even a converter wouldn't work.
All I had was a CD stereo and my Dobe for company.
Bee Gees it was! Plus all my other Disco! Oh, and Faron Young and such.

Did you grow up with piano or is this something new you are delving into?
If you already said, pardon me. I have a hard time paying attention in class.

1. If reproducibility may a problem, conduct the test only once.
2. If a straight line fit is required, obtain only two data points.

The vet we go to now, the docs and vet techs are great...they treat our dogs like their own, call us to see how the dogs are doing, and there's never a feeling of being rushed so they can see the next patient. And best of all, the one vet we like to see, listens to me because as she said, Mocha is my dog and I know her best.

|melbrod||Yeah, good choice. You might hear something you wouldn't be able to un-hear. Sometimes it's better just not to know.|

Well soon Sypha - That's a hard deal on them - It always worried us sick the day ours had that done . |
I agree MC - One Vet we use will be retiring soon - been with him for over 20 years - We trust him more than anybody . Will be a sad day with Doc hangs it up .

Back to Lannie's DH not eating....I read somewhere that if a person's sense of smell weakens, or goes away completely, they often lose their appetite. That can go along with chronic congestion, sinus problems, or more rarely with other nasty things. Maybe something to think about?? |
Of course, working on a farm with livestock, it might be better NOT to have a sense of smell.

Give Sypha a (gentle) hug for me (when I was proofreading, I noticed I typed "jug". I wasn't really recommending you give her a dose of moonshine though. I'd suggest it for you, except seems to me I remember alcohol makes your headaches worse. How about a nice hot bubble bath?? With no added scents--those make even my head hurt.) |
Anyway, back to Sypha--she should heal pretty fast, but that doesn't mean it is easy being a mom-nurse until she does. Hang in there, MC. (And there I go, back to you again.)
I hear you about cooking for people who don't appreciate it, Lannie. I have a recipe vaguely like the one you mention with fish, only it uses chicken, sour cream and Cheese Nips crackers. I love it; everyone else in my family thinks it is gross. I comfort myself with the knowledge that SOMEONE out there must have liked it to put it into a cookbook.
Probably just as well I don't cook it though. I imagine it is totally unhealthy.

Morning, everyone. |
Well, big day yesterday - Sypha got spayed. We had intended to also do a gastropexy, but she had some trouble with the anesthesia. My vet called from the OR as soon as she finished up the spay and asked me how important the 'pexy was to me, and said she just had this gut feeling she should wrap it up and get her back out. Of course I said follow your gut - I trust her 100%. We've had about a decade long relationship - she treats my pets as if they are her own. So she finished up and no 'pexy. Sypha came through okay, and she's recovering and resting well. She clearly doesn't feel "well", but she has pain medication and is taking it easy. It's tough to see them not their normal selves.
These sorts of situations are exactly why I am such an advocate for veterinarians - they really do put our animals first. It's so important to build a relationship with a vet. Treasure your vets, folks, be an advocate for them. Vets are bombarded lately with so much, and they deserve our support.

What's even worse is a few times he's actually said "Eh, I don't really like it very much." And I mean I don't make crap food, I make good stuff. But he's just as happy eating a can of chili. It's a mystery to me... We've been together (officially married) for 21 years, and I'm still not used to it. I would never let on to him, but it hurts my feelings when he says stuff like that. Then on the other hand, when he actually LIKES something, like the fish and chips last night, it makes me feel like a million bucks!
He wasn't always this way, though. Back in the day, he enjoyed food, and appreciated my cooking. It was when he got to be an old curmudgeon that he seems to have lost interest in food.

I have a recipe for SP that's pretty simple, and I consider filling. I tried it last night for the first time and it was REALLY GOOD, so I'll tell you what I did if anyone wants to try it.
Fish fillets (I used cod 'cause it's cheap) and roasted potatoes. Like fish & chips, but better.
Season the fish on one side and spread mayo on it in a thick layer, then crush crackers (I just used saltines) coarsely and press on as a "crust." Flip the fish over and do the same thing again, then lay the pieces on an oiled baking sheet.
Meanwhile thinly slice (like 1/8" thin) a russet potato. I used my old Veg-O-Matic (oh, now you know how old I am!), but a mandolin slicer would give nice even slices, too, unless you're really good with a knife. The only reason they should be uniformly thick is so they're all done about the same time, it's not a REQUIREMENT or anything. Toss the potato slices in a bowl with olive oil and salt so that all the slices are coated, and lay them out on the baking sheet beside the fish in rows, slightly overlapping if you have to so they'll all fit. I put a little pepper on mine, but hey, they're potatoes, go crazy, try any kind of seasoning on them.
*Note: The potato slices stuck to my pan, in spite of using plenty of oil on the potatoes AND on the pan, so if you have parchment paper, maybe put a sheet of that down on the pan first. You still want oil on the potatoes so they'll brown.
Heat the oven to 425F and pop the pan in there for 20 to 30 minutes depending on how big the fish pieces are and how thick your potatoes are sliced. Mine took 25 minutes total last night until the potatoes were done, and the fish was golden brown and perfect. (The fish didn't stick to the pan at all!) There's no need to turn anything, just put the pan in and check for doneness after 20 minutes or so and adjust accordingly.
I made some tartar sauce to go with the fish, but the crust was very crispy and yummy and it really didn't need it. And it made me full. Even my not-interested-in-food husband liked it and asked if I'd make it again, and he usually isn't impressed by much. I'm a very good cook and I feel my talents are wasted on him because he doesn't care, so when he says he actually LIKES something, I must have hit a home run. Anyway, that was simple, easy to fix, and tasted really good.
