I know I know, I’ve been slacker majorly on this blog. Lots have been going on around the house and two we’ve been in a “eat the same stuff over and over” mode much to hubby’s request. I do have some new recipes and some I’ve tried that I have to rave about and just good parenting stuff I want to share.

Biden is Big dissapointment December 19, 2008

Well I guess Biden isn’t on the same animal compassionate side as Obama. But Biden BOUGHT a german shephard dog from a breeder, also not confirmed yet but there is speculation that it may have been from a puppy mill breeder which would be even worse.

Is this a “must have before you move into the white house staff” thing is to have a dog? It almost seems as a accesorie to be there, why didn’t they gets dogs before?¬†

Well hopefully people wont run out to buy dogs just becausethe ¬†Bidens and Obamas did/are. I saw a article saying that now that Obamas are thinking of getting a dog that people are going to go out and get one… are you serious???!

I know not very bright people have done this in even more ridicolous situations such as 101 Dalmations and then a little while latter the shelters/pounds are filled with dalmation dogs since they aren’t the cute puppies that were in the movie anymore. Seriously, would you buy your kid a tiger because they saw Aladin? um no.. why would you buy your child a live animal just because they saw a movie. Pet sit, even foster an animal from rescue or shelter to get a feel of it, most likely your kid will not be interested any longer at the end of it and will be on the next thing.

I’m sorry if this is a bit ranty but this is a sore spot.

Try again, maybe a different way. I tried Vegan with a Vegance’s Seitan (good) Jerk Seitan (not so good). It may be our taste buds but none of us liked it. So I had all this seitan left over and so I figured I’d just try cooking it in the pan plain in “cutlet” shape and it worked Hubby, Punkyroo and I ate it all, which was good since we had 5 chunks of it leftover after the Jerk Seitan recipe. Every day or so Punkyroo will ask for “seeeteen”, it’s so cute.

But I just sliced it very thin and cooked it on a med-high heat on both sides until it was browned on both sides.
