If you know nothing else about me...know this "I am a horse woman!".
I have had horses my entire life, for me...it's not a hobby, it's a life style. I eat trails during the summer and horse camp each weekend. My Ice Pony Huginn is my trail partner. My mini mare Dixie is Huginn's best friend. My best buddies are Lucy Bear and Molly Macaroni, my two dogs. They go everywhere with me and love to horse camp.
I'm the type a Girl,who will burst out laughin' in dead silence.....cuz of somethin' that happened yesterday!
"I begin to think no animal is more intelligent than an Icelandic horse. Snow, tempest, impracticable roads, rocks, icebergs - nothing stops him. He is brave; he is sober; he is safe; he never makes a false step; never glides or slips from his path." Jules Verne, 1864 - Journey to the Center of the Earth

"I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter, the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.
And I was angry. "God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?"
God was silent for a moment and then He spoke softly. "I have done something," He replied. "I created You."

Hey...do ya know that it's World Vegetarian Day? Don't know 'bout ya, but I love my veggies.
Now, I have nothing against eating meat, I happen to eat it myself. But, I tend to be picky about the meat that I do consume. It needs to be humanly raised (pasture raised).
I do however perter to eat a non animal protein meal, it's just tastier. I love salads, veggies, hummus, fruits, etc.
Here's two quick easy recipes for a vegan lunch. Enjoy!
Sweet Potato Cornbread
2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups cornmeal 1/2 cup sugar 7 teaspoons baking powder 2 teaspoons salt 4 egg, beaten 3/4 cup milk 1/3 cup vegetable oil 2 2/3 cups mashed cooked sweet potatoes In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, milk, oil and sweet potatoes. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan.
Bake at 425 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cut into squares. Serve warm
Kale with Spicy Peanut Dressing Kale Peanuts Red Onions
Spicy Peanut Dressing 3 Cups Peanut Butter 9 tbsp Just like honey (honey works also) 3/4 Cup Soy Sauce 3/4 Cup Brown Rice Vinegar 3 tsp Minced garlic 2 tbsp Ginger 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper 1 tsp Salt 9 oz Hot Water
Blanch the Kale: Remove the Kale from the stems. Add a pinch of Salt to a pot of boiling water, then blanch the Kale. Remove the Kale from the boiling water and shock it in a container of ice water. Finally, squeeze the excess water out of the cooled Kale.

Drizzle the dressing on top of the Kale and mix the two together. Garnish with chopped red onions and chopped peanuts.
