It's a recipe week y'all!

I do not eat meat all that much but every once in a while I do appreciate a good Philly or a cheeseburger that my Hunty grills. One night this week, the Philly hankering kicked in. So I jumped at the chance to make my house smell of amazing food.

Green peps and red onions simmering in a saute pan, 1 cap size amount of Italian olive oil and 1 of Zesty Italian salad dressing. This night I added some cherry tomatoes sliced in half in. This goes on medium-low heat for roughly 10 minutes:




Add meat. I take a few slices together and cut into strips, then into pieces. Cook until your desired shade of cooked. Yes, cooked meaning gauge how well done you prefer your meat. I wish the smell would radiate right off this page. It is unbelievable the wonderful flavor and scent this medley makes:






Grab bread you'll be using or make a salad. Romaine lettuce is delicious for this purpose. If you have Parmesan cheese in house sprinkle a pinch or two over the lettuce. Tonight we made sandwiches. We love Publix hamburger rolls. You can press these into the pan you cook the food in for a few secs to add some lightly-toasted crunch. Right as you are taking the pan off the burner, lay a slice of cheese- we used Munster- over the meat and let the generated heat melt it. Use a spatula to divide portions and slide right on the bread. This sandwich calls for a side of fruit to add a light balance. I sprinkled a pinch of feta cheese over top the grapes and strawberries:




We enjoyed it and as my lovie said, "It was better than a Philly Pub sub, babe!"


Gee, thanks :)

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:
