Egg tuna pie,wt loss snooppy valentine stitchery, Max

Today I thought I'd introduce Max who is half pygmy and half angora goat. He was also a gift from my daughter Cassie in the Summer 2011, and I believe he was born in the Spring 2011. He is neutered (thank goodness) and dehorned though he has some little bumps. He is quite the character he believes that he is a puppy. He always wants to jump up on me and is trying to get petted.  He pushes Martina around and is at least twice as round as she and a few inches taller. He often needs to be brushed as he is always getting hay and other ickies in his hair
One day he pushed Martina off a truck and she just laid there, are neighbor thought Max had killed her, he was very worried, but Max and Martina rough house all the time.
Those are mesquite trees in the back ground that they love to nibble on and they even go after the mistletoe that hangs from the trees.
I've been trying to lose weight for a while but this year I thought I would try to lose 2 lbs a month, since I'm starting now I decided to go with 1 lb. this month. I'm on the treadmill daily for almost 45 minutes a day, 2.1 mph and 3.5 grade. I figured I'd reward myself monthly if I make my goal with some small treat.
I'm doing a Valentine exchange this year through World of Cross Stitching site, I'm doing Snoopy, I hand dyed my aida with koolaid, vinegar and oversprayed with red acyrlic paint.  I still need to add beads to the  valentines and mount it on the card. I want to do one for myself and make it into a needlecase. I was really worried about it, I noticed I had some dirt on the little guy and had to give the guy a bath with mild dish detergent. I was really worried about the fabric afraid my colors would run, but he did just fine and I'm definitely pleased.
I created what I thought was a great recipe last night
Egg-Tuna Pie
4 green onions
4 eggs
1 can tuna-water packed
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup flour
2 tbsp. dry milk
1/4 cup water
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp. white pepper
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup roasted bell peppers
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, except the panko and bell peppers. Mix well-till smooth, Pour into a greased 8x8 casserole dish. top with panko and bell peppers. Bate at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. After you remove from the oven let it sit for 5 minutes before serving. Great with a dollop of sour cream on top.


  1. The highlight of my day is reading your blogs mother, I feel disappointed with this one, only a title? Tease.

  2. Max is pleasantly plump, he is big boned, it's all genetics, Max will come up with more excuses, he needs to ask his friend Matterhorn as to what excuses he gives as to his size. After all Max is small compared to an elephant.
