Support Boobs with Avon’s Walk for Breast Cancer

Get involved with Avon’s annual Breast Cancer Walk.  I have done the Avon Walk in New York and now this year I’ll participate in San Francisco and it’s a fun thing to do with friends and family for a huge cause.  Most likely you know someone personally or know someone who knows somebody personally who has been affected by breast cancer.  Someone in my family is a survivor of breast cancer and that’s not the only person I know who has been affected.  So get out there and support victims, survivors and breasts!  Men can get breast cancer too FYI!

Summer Vegetable Tart

I‘m about to share with you all one of simplest and yummiest recipes I know.  Oh, and it’s healthy too!

Just in time for summer is my summer vegetable tart.  Whether I’m entertaining or having a night in I know this dish will be a people pleaser.  The veggie tart is ideal as an appetizer or side if you’re serving guests.  You can pick and choose your veggie toppings, but I will give you my recommendations.  Basically, the more variety the better!

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 450*.  Chop veggies and tomatos and cut corn off cob.  Put aside in bowl and mix with enough olive oil, salt and pepper so veggies are lightly coated.  Place veggies in ungreased pan or small Pyrex and heat in stove for 25-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, roll out both thawed puff pastries on lightly floured surfaced.  Spread pesto in center of puff pastries.  Spoon veggie mixture into center of puff pastries and fold edges over the filling, leaving the center uncovered.

3. Transfer puff pastries to lighly floured cookie sheet.  Bake for another 20 minutes until golden brown.  Take out and sprinkle with basil if desired.  Let cool, cut up, serve and enjoy!

This little Shiba has been a huge motivation for me.  Having a dog gets you out of the house and moving around!  Also, being a responsible pet-owner can be so rewarding.  I live by the quote, "Be the person your dog thinks you are."- J.W. Stephens
