Tag! Six things!

Okay...so I am a little slow and lazy about blogging, but I think this is a cute idea!
Brittany of (B)log. tagged me. I probably don't know enough blogs to tag anyone else, so if you want to do this. Dooooo it. 6 unimportant things that make you happy. Since my blog is about Lady Sadie and me, I will try my best to incorporate it into the theme. Here goes it.

1. taking sadie to get the mail. first off- she looooves going outside. so a short trip to the mail box is perfect, she gets a break from her boring day- I get to see how many people have rsvp'd for the wedding. All together a great trip for the both of us.

2. watching sadie bite the wind when I am driving. not safe, but very comical.

3. watching sadie drive my car. well not drive but it sure looks like it. she likes to look out all angles of the car and the windsheild is her fav. She props her front paws up on the steering wheel and truly looks like she knows where she is taking us.

4. when Sadie poops outside. it has been a challenge to potty train her, so when ever it does happen- i am ectsatic, and all my neighbors think i am crazy for going on and on with praise over her little poopy.

5. when she leaps back into bead with me after i let her out in the morning. now that i am living with the parents for the summer, she wakes up super early. so i crack my door open so my parents can take her. eventually she gets bored with them and she comes racing up the stairs and rushes into my cracked door and leaps onto my bed and licks my face until she falls asleep on my head. i just love it.

6. sadie's growl when she is excited. she never barks, but when i get her playing or chasing me she has this little puppy growl that is hysterical, and a little bit scary. but it is really funny to hear.

okay so i could probably go on about with tons of unimportant things that sadie does to make me happy, but i am not. we've got a trip outside to hopefully a successful tossy(my mom's word for her little turds).

My New Favorite Recipe

here is Lady Sadie- who also loves to chew on raw spinach and like goat cheese off the floor while I am cooking this!
Chicken Breast stuffed with Goat Cheese and Spinach

(I have adjusted the recipe to an easier/quicker version)

Serves: 4

Prep time:15 min

Cook time: 35min

3/4 bag of Spinach

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 garlic cloves

light or regular goat cheese (as little or much as you want)

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

sea salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice uncooked chicken breasts through the middle almost in half, but leave one side in tact. Spread goat cheese on bottom half of chicken and set aside in a oven safe dish with one table spoon of olive oil. Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan on medium high heat. Mince the garlic and heat in oil until fragrant (30 seconds) stirring constantly. Add spinach and toss until wilted. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stuff chickens with spinach evenly, leaving a little to put ontop of the chicken. Close the chicken up. put left over spinach on each chicken breast and sprinkle with some goat cheese. Salt and pepper to taste, drizzle a little olive oil if you'd like and put in the oven. Cook for 35 minutes. Serve with a barley and rice mix (kashi has an amazing one) and pears! DELISH!
