RE: Weight Watcher Recipes

Been a while since this surfaced and I tried a new dish last night that turned out great. I don't have the points yet, maybe someone could run it for me and add them. Shrimp Arrabbiata Ingredients 8 ounces uncooked campanelle (bell flower-shaped pasta) or rigatoni 12 ounces peeled and deveined extra-large shrimp 3/8 teaspoon kosher salt, divided 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil: I sprayed then used about 1 tsp 1 small onion, thinly sliced 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced 4 garlic cloves, minced 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper 1/3 cup dry white wine 2 cups canned crushed tomatoes 2 tablespoons grated pecorino Romano cheese 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice Preparation 1. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil over high heat. Add pasta. Cook according to package directions; drain. 2. Sprinkle shrimp with 1/8 teaspoon salt. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp; cook 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side or until done. Transfer shrimp to a plate. I did a steamed asparagus with garlic and sea salt and cut up half of a fresh pineapple split two ways to go with it. Satisfying and still have two servings left for a lunch! Did you leave out a few steps? like what to do with these ingredients ... 1 small onion, thinly sliced 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced 4 garlic cloves, minced 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper 1/3 cup dry white wine 2 cups canned crushed tomatoes 2 tablespoons grated pecorino Romano cheese 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice :)

RE: Poor Puppy - Travel Plans Put on Hold

Big difference between 45 days and 26 weeks, I wonder why the difference? What does DRS Doug says? I was wondering the same - if incubation is 2-8 weeks, why does she have to be in quarantine for 26 weeks? Dr Doug?

RE: **UPDATE** Strange Rescue Organization Encounter

*** UPDATE *** It all worked out in the end!! I picked up our new family member on Friday!! YAY!!! Meet Shyann, a 4.5 y/o boxer. Her previous owner could no longer care for her as she had to care for her ailing mother. http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x257/ridingfamily4/Shyann%203-20-15.jpg

RE: Tell me what you think

my DH drove a farm tractor at 6 or 7 here in So Cal. It was not that uncommon 40 years ago (can't vouch for now).

RE: **UPDATE** Strange Rescue Organization Encounter

:B There should be some "common sense" rules, BUT... I AM the vet and had to go through many of the same things when we adopted Jill. I think they let some things slide a little (no home visit but we provided pictures of our house and yard :B) and they loved the RV (we actually got her at a campground in St. Louis). Now I don't feel so bad!! If a rescue is "unsure" about a vet ... This one bad apple will not keep me from finding the right girl for us, as we have had good luck in the past with rescues (unfortunately, the boxer rescue we went thru before is gone).

RE: **UPDATE** Strange Rescue Organization Encounter

I'm wondering what you did to get your boxer to live to 14?! The average life span is only 8-10. What's your secret? We have always had great luck with our pets. I had a cat who lived to be 17 (adopted from a shelter). Sammie (boxer) was an extraordinary dog. Her story was that she was owned by a military guy who also owned a pit. One day he was playing with them and the pit got jealous. Rather than get rid of the pit, who he knew could never be adopted, he took the boxer to a rescue. She had scars on her head from the attack. We had contacted a local rescue and went to the home of the rescuer. We met 9 different boxers of all shapes and sizes. The dog was going to be for my 8 year old (at the time). We sat in the living room and one by one met all of them. I though we were going to end up with the 8 month old puppy. I sat on the floor as each one came in the room. All the pups ran to me to meet. After we had met each one, my son said he just didn't get a feeling from any of them. phew .. no puppy!! The rescuer said, she had one that she had just gotten 2 days prior and didn't know her very well. She brought her in, she ran to my son, put her head in his lap and looked up at him with those beautiful, big brown eyes. We were smitten! Sammie fit into our family perfectly. We had another dog at the time and they were sisters instantly. She was happy around all other dogs she ever met. She adapted to camping easily. Our secret? love - plain and simple (not that anyone else doesn't love their pets). They have been on all sorts of different foods (depending on their needs or our income). They get their shots and vet visits/medication if necessary. Plenty of toys, exercise and pillows (dog beds). Baths/nails when they need it. They are not allowed on our furniture or beds. Doggy door to go outside whenever they like/need. Our pets are always neutered/spayed (I believe that helps in leading a longer life). I am the alpha. They do not get table scraps.

RE: Swordfish recipe?

I had 2 nice sized steaks, so I made them 2 ways. 1. I did the soy sauce, brown sugar, dried mustard - my DH preferred this one. 2. I diced mushrooms, tomatoes, onion, garlic, and green olives (would have preferred Kalamata, but was out). Seasoned and tossed in olive oil. put over the steak and foil wrapped. baked in oven. I was going for a Mediterranean flavor. This was my preference. thanks for the suggestions

RE: **UPDATE** Strange Rescue Organization Encounter

Our last boxer came from a rescue. Again, I have nothing but respect for people who rescue - it is indeed a calling. I'm just frustrated with my experience with this particular incident.

**UPDATE** Strange Rescue Organization Encounter

Last Saturday, my sister tagged me on Facebook regarding a rescue who was looking to adopt out a boxer girl. A little back story, our 14 y/o boxer passed on Dec. 26th. We weren't looking for another yet, but the story on this little girl touched my heart. I contacted the woman (Deb) who had posted the story on her. We spoke on the phone and she said she was very impressed and thought we would be a perfect match. She then gave me the website to complete an application for the rescue. I completed the app on Sunday. Mind you, this app is very dry - asking very to the point questions, which I answered honestly. Deb has kept in contact with me everyday, asking if I had heard anything. The rescue had responded to my app on Monday and said it would be 2-3 days before I heard anything. This was supposed to be an emergency placement. I was being patient, waiting. Deb finally called her contact at the rescue who told her they decided we weren't a good match. She asked why had I not been contacted and at least told of the situation. They emailed me this morning, saying that because we worked and the dog would be home 8 hours a day by herself, it would not be a good match. My response to their email: I wish someone had taken the time to contact me or even meet us. What wasn't conveyed in the application is that I work 4 days a week (mon thru thurs) and as being the manager, I am able to bring my pet with me to work. So being alone is not an issue. Unfortunately, as with reading resumes, you may not always get the full story. We have raised a boxer to 14 years old. All our friends whom we camp with, have boxers...she would never be lonely! Our pets are always part of our family. I tell you this not to change anyone's mind, but to hopefully in the future, encourage you to do more research before blindly turning down a loving home. Sincerely, CM I post this so that any rescuers that are here, please do not go blindly by an application. Sometimes, there is more to the story. Yes I work, but that does not keep me from being a good doggy mommy, as my 14 y/o boxer or my 13 y/o lab spaniel could have attested to. I am not angry or bitter, just sad for this poor baby who has been shuffled around. Also, this is not to slam any rescue organization. I think the work they do is wonderful and necessary. All of our pups have been rescues of one sort or another.

RE: More road noise after replacing carpet with vinyl?

yes, there is some additional noise, but it is worth it to NOT have the carpeting. We camp in the desert mostly and get alot of fine dirt/sand. The carpet was a pain to clean.

RE: Does anyone watch the Academy Awards...

I have not watched in years. With DH sick with the flu, I decided to put them on, just too see if I have missed anything in the last 10-15 years or so. A resounding NOPE! They are exactly what they used to be. Very rich people giving each other a pat on the back, while using the stage to pass on their own political / activist views. The 2 highlights were JK Simmons speech about calling Mom/Dad and Lady Gaga singing the Sound of Music. Other than that, I could have watched something / ANYTHING else!!
