HLL, that's great news!

I'm being adventurous tomorrow for dinner. Gonna make brussel sprouts with dinner tomorrow (never made them before). Main dish is gonna be meatloaf and other side is mashed potatoes (I'm "famous" in my family for my mashed potatoes).

UGH Drafty, I'm so HUNGRY!!!

Hubby decided it would be awesome to have fajitas tonight, but he decided to make the tortillas from SCRATCH when we left the grocery store around 9 pm =(

I'm still waiting on dinner /cry

Oh update on Witch! Vet says she's good and doesn't have horsey Black Plague or anything. He says she had an abscess but it's popped, don't bother to medicate, and she should be fine for a bit in a few days. He also said she looks like a Saddlebred with paint colors. He suggested that Saddlebred's are kind of goofy (which might partly explain why she seems so NOSY and into everything lol)

Oh so I think it turns out that a lot of her feisty comes from being stuck inside the barn with no turnout. The BO let her out for awhile after the vet said Witch was good, and she called me and said that after I left, she tested out the horse awhile...she says that it's clear someone took the time to train Witch, and that she's very light (I think that was what she said) and responsive, so that she thinks we'll be able to work with her easily enough. =D Which is great news, because after the spectacle Witchie made at that stud yesterday, and how antsy she's been, I was a little worried!

Demonwolf, a saddlebred with pinto coloring is called a spotted saddle horse. And I agree with the vet that she definitely strikes me as a spotted saddle horse. That's what I thought when I first saw her, in fact.

I'm excited about the brussel sprouts! Gonna braise them with apples, bacon, and artichoke hearts. Nomz! Next adventure is going to be salmon. I bought myself a food processor today (got it for $5 at Goodwill today...and it's still in the box!!), so we're gonna have some fun with cooking. And I just got an idea for a dish from Iron Chef: America. Trout mousse ravioli (trout and leeks made into a mousse). Yummy!

Is that like a PomChi, or a ChiPoo, or even a Goldendoodle?
And honestly thanks for telling me, I'd have never known! Her paperwork says "Paint", but that isn't true either, since we don't have registration and so technically she'd have to be a Pinto?


Grats on the food processor, that was a nice find on a fun toy!!!! I'll have to stop by your house on our way back to California, so you can invite me to dinner! ;) *drools*

Not sure how spotted saddle horses first came about; if pinto coloring was present from the bringing of the saddlebred breed or if it was bred in. More info:

Come on over!! Seriously! Let me know when you're coming and I'll plan something special. I've been dying to try these chocolate crepes with marscapone filling. :-D

Oh Drafty! I'm soooo sorry...with everything happening in your life it's absolutely NO WONDER you're down and out with a migraine(believe me, you are SO NOT the only one...I have like, 9 thousand things going on right now, and me being a Virgo, am absolutely going nuts with it all...but praise G-d, essentially things are "barely"under control!) We were blessed with something wonderful today which helped enormously...later on that....

Anyhow, I haven't read through the thread in a few days, and some of y'all have me in tears laughing at new "WITCHY, HORNY HORSES"!! Others have me in tears over electricity being shut off, cars being broken, brothers using phones excessively, husbands NOT GETTING THE IDEA OF A "cheap car for now!" (are you married secretly to my DH??) :0) & family members going to the hospital! Let me not forget mourning losses of incredible horses...

Ugh. Women are SO STRONG! Between what we are all collectively coping with and STILL going to work, caring for kids and horses, and perhaps even managing to eat a meal or even take an occasional shower somewhere in there, we ARE SUPERWOMEN!!

Anyway guys, I'm off to get ready for work, to go in and say goodbye to my coworkers of five years, work my very last night shift at my current hospital, before beginning my new job MONDAY MORNING! Am a lot sad and a lot happy...melancholy is the word I suppose. Please, please y'all, KNOW FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART...I AM PRAYING SO HARD FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU STRUGGLING (as we all are in different ways...no one is ALONE HERE!) that peace will come and very soon. I admire each and every one of you for just having the strength to hang in there. We will get through all the tough CRAP, we have to keep hanging on, and keep venting & praying, ok??

Huge hugs to ALL... B2H....

B2H, you are just the sweetest thing ever! Next time I go down to pick up my son in Tucson, we'll have to do lunch.

Have a great night tonight B2H!.. I can't believe I just said that to somebody going to work lol!. And if we don't hear from you in the meantime, best of luck settling in on Monday. You'll will be just fine and they will all love you :)

HorseLovinLady - Delighted to hear such good news! That is fantastic! :)

Drafty - I'll stick one in the post for ya :) No guarantee what kind of condition it's in when it gets to you though ha! You are putting me to shame here. I'm that amazing a chef; that I know the food is done when the alarm goes off. I'm not talkin bout the alarm on the oven, I'm talkin about that annoying alarm on the ceiling that takes ages to turn off lol!!

Demon - Give her a chance to settle in, if your BO is happy enough I'm sure it'll work itself out. I wouldn't be in a rush to hop on her back, take your time getting to know her.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Hey, a smooshed cupcake is still a cupcake!

As far as cooking, I was not at all a girly-girl growing u. I had absolutely no interest in cooking or baking. Sports? Yeah. Cars? Heck yeah! Girly stuff? How about not? Lol. I've always been good at baking (used to make killer bread). A few years ago, I got really into cooking and I just love it. It's nice having someone to cook for who appreciates what I cook. He isn't afraid to tell me if something isn't so great, or if it's amazing.

My hubby is the type who says "it's lovely" as he naws away on a burnt piece of charcoal... I mean steak, as if if were a bone lol!

I'm not girly at all, jeans and a hoody is my daily wear. Make up? Some concealer on the spots and I'm good for the day. I'm that sad, when I go for a night out I have to raid my 6yo's play makeup kits lmfao!

Jeans, a t-shirt and my Adidas or Ariats are my daily uniform, unless I'm going to work (I have a uniform for work...which is jeans, my work shirt and my Ariat Terrains lol). I do have makeup, but I only wear it if I have an interview or I'm going out on a date/girls' night. I do like to dress up, though, and wear skirts/dresses at random. That didn't start until after my son was born.

I'll post pics of dinner tomorrow along with reviews from my test subject.
