RSPCA Million Paws Walk

Way too many dogs and people for my local walking track.
Is that a bad thing to say?

Anyhoo i had with me the terrible two's Batman (6 month French Bulldog) and Dakota (3 year old Blue English Staffy). Well everybody wanted to pat them and everyone asked is Batman was a Boston Terrier.... I'm like no French Bulldog. ggrrrrrrrrrrr and whats the grey one? People its a staffy she is just a little fat, they were everywhere you would have to have been super stupid not to know.




One of our friend's said the following about this photo, i laughed so much.
" Too many evil doers. Batman tired, Batman need sleep"




 

Ok OK end rant.

I walked the lake quite quickly, i didn't want to waste the 5km walk going slowly (plus Dakota needs to loose weight) There were the most beautiful dogs everywhere and the cutest little Chihuahua's heheheh i felt bad cause all the other dogs were much bigger than them...... but cuteness to the max.

I patted some Greyhounds from the The Greyhound Safety Net and The Greyhound Adoption Program Please visit these site and donate or adopt!!
My sister has 2 greyhounds from GSN and they are beautiful wonderful dogs. I recommend.

I purchased a blanket for the doggies and all up the day was sunny and great for the dogs to get out.

Everyone should participate next year

Pomegranite Malasas

Great addition to your kitchen, i've used it so far for Marinating Meat and Salad Dressing.
I will post soon with pictures of the food I've made.

Its quite tart but you add things to break it down. I've found orange or mandarine juice really helps and works so amazing together especially that mix as a salad dressing.

FCUK








Looking for a winter top to wear to dinners and parties i came across this gem.

I think i was looking for something to buy for hours on Saturday and Myer let down, David Jones let down.
So since i parked at Melbourne Central i was determined to buy something from there.

Bend and Strech and Bend and Strech

Pilates times

I've started Pilates to help me with my neck.

Its an interesting form of exercise cause I had a private lesson and thought what a pathetic workout and then i paid for those words the next day with pain in places i never knew it could be.
I'm going to Soma Pilates which I'm liking, will give more updates later.

So far i feel like I've had great improvement with Chiropractor (i was super anti the chiro) and I'm hoping Pilates will keep me away from them now.

Beet me

Baked Chicken and Roasted Root Veges






So this is the usual meal at home Meat Veges Salad small amount of cheese. So not much you can really change to make it amazing except for the veges. Beetroot is fun to cook with..... fresh people fresh.

This is a very easy easy recipe and i stole/got inspiration for the chicken from non other than Martha Stewart. YAY she was fun to watch. There was this celebrity (z list) cause  I've never seen her (obviously i know all the good ones... cough cough anyhoo she is staying on the z list).
So Martha was bossing her around and she was doing all types of wrong and it was funny cause Martha tries to be nice but gets very bossy and then the zceleb felt bad and then Martha apologised and then repeat cycle.

I would have roasted the Beets whole in foil with herbs inside the foil but that take too long to cook. So i chopped them up. Then everything went red... but i like it.

Ingredients

Chicken Breast
Mixed Salad
Feta (I'm obsessed with Meredith Diary i think i need to do a solo blog just on their products)
Parsnip
Sweet Potato
Honey
1/2 Lemon
Oregano
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper

Method

Preheat Oven to maybe about 180 (I'm not sure my oven doesn't have the numbers on the dial)

Cut the root veges up into smallish sizes
Place veges in a oven dish
Coat with oil (not to much)
Heat honey in microwave
Pour honey in over the veges (not to much)
Add a small amount of oregano
Mix around so all the veges are coated
Pop tray in the oven

Place the chicken into a oven dish
Coat chicken with oil
Cover with oregano (i used dried.. that's all i had)
Cut the lemon and squeeze the juice (cut the lemon half into half again)

Pinch of salt and pepper
Turn the chicken and mix around and so forth until both sides are covered evenly
Between the chicken breasts place the lemon that you used

Bake in the oven i think it took around 30 mins to cook

Get a plate
Put the chicken on it
Mixed Salad
Crumble feta on the salad
Put the roasted root veges on the plate

Happy eating everyone, for some reason the chicken stayed super moist and the veges also were covered in beetroot juice and tasted really really good. The Bf is not so keen on the parsnip but i really liked the texture and flavour they added to the root vege mix.
