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…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.

Simple blessings

I’m lying in bed, next to a snoring husband and my baby girl dogter sprawled out cozy as can be, while the rain falls down upon our roof. Gone are the days of spending a Saturday night downtown at a club, throwing beers back in a honky think, or galavanting around to anywhere with the lights on.

And I’m not mad about it. Not even a little bit. There is tilt no place I’d rather be than with hunter, Roni and our comfy sweet little home happily netflixing and writing this here post. It’s a good feeling indeed.

I count my blessings extra on nights like this and say a few additional prayers for love and comfort to continue on. I truly don’t ask for more than health, happiness, and love. Anything else is gravy.

To simple blessings for all.
